New From Haynesy Feat. ddubble - The ddubble EP

Do you remember a UK rap compilation album called Hard Core Volume 1 from back in 1988? One of the best songs on it was Control by DJ Cue Tips & Dashy D.
It turns out that one of this duo (Matt) is a member of the ABU Facebook Group and casually mentioned the fact that he was part of the album. Well, it also turns out that he has made this lovely little two-track beauty (as 'HAYNESY').

It's digital only but he would much rather get a physical release out, too.
Support it here: https://ddubble.bandcamp.com/album/ddubble-ep

Also, speaking of that Hard Core comp, there was a cut called Into The Music by one MC Krazee A aka Nihal Arthanayake.
Some of you might recognise the name Nihal as that guy who presents on the radio (BBC Radio 5 Live, Asian Network) as well as appearances on tv (The Wright Show).
Well, isn't it a Krazee world....

New From REMARK - Book Of Fear

New heat from Remark telling it like it is over a dope, retro synth-led banger!



Over on the ABU Group on Facebook we have a day dedicated to spam. Big old meaty spam.
Yes, for one day of the week you can push any old tat you wish to all the members of the group - DJ mixes, music productions, artwork, gigs, events...
But that is it. After 24 hours the 'No Spamming' rule is back-n-effect.

"Egg and bacon; egg sausage and bacon; egg and spam; egg bacon and spam; egg bacon sausage and spam; spam bacon sausage and spam; spam egg spam spam bacon and spam; spam sausage spam spam bacon spam tomato and spam; spam spam spam egg and spam; spam spam spam spam spam spam baked beans spam spam spam, or Lobster Thermidor au Crevette with a Mornay sauce served in a Provencale manner with shallots and aubergines garnished with truffle pate, brandy and with a fried egg on top and spam".


Astrosphearz' 80's Hip Hop Mix

I was just cleaning out my Spam folder over the weekend and came across an email from Astrosphearz.
It's a really, really well put together of 80s rap tunes. The reason I'm giving it props is due to the fact that the selection is top-notch - some lesser-heard songs get shine - and there has been a lot of effort put into producing the whole mix. It's not just a case of blending for an hour but some excellent editing has gone into this as well as some esoteric thought behind what goes where.
Oh, and it doesn't hurt to have some shit-hot scratching, too!
I urge you to check this.

Apologies to Astrosphearz for the slackness.

New ABU Podcast 'Space Funk' - Coming Soon

We've been a bit quiet lately but fear not as there's plenty going on here at ABU Towers.

Coming soon - aiming for the last Thursday of Feb - is the latest Podcast. It will have a 'Space Funk' theme and so far sounds pretty good. There's so much that can be categorized under this theme, much more so than anticipated that it will be difficult in deciding what to eliminate to make the show's usual two hour runtime.

More details soon.
