New Steinski Stuff!

Double Dee (L), Steinski (R)

What's this? New Steinski material? And WITH Double Dee as well? Yoinks!
This is What's The Angle? - Double Dee featuring ADA and is in that typical cut 'n' paste style we've come to know, expect and demand.
New track from Double Dee featuring ADA! In this first official collaboration Double Dee invited long time fan ADA into the Double Dee and Steinski family to help answer the question "What's The Angle?"

“What’s the Angle” is in the same bag as some of my previous productions, "Jezebel" and "Who Owns Culture #2", all which have a decidedly rock feel and use elements from classic recordings. As you’ll hear in the track, there are samples from more than a few sources - some more well known than others. See if you can find them!
Listen below and go to the Bandcamp page to grab a high-quality copy.

Also check out this recent Steinski piece. It's a very downbeat and sombre audio collage in ode of the recent school fatalities of Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Florida last month.

Why not check out the rest of their Soundcloud page here (as well as here) with many other goodies including remastered versions of the legendary Lessons tracks. Excellent stuff.
And while you're scootin' all over the internet, here's the Double Dee and Steinski Official Site.
You may find yourself here for a long while.

Roxanne Shante Is Coming To Netflix

There's a brand new biopic coming to our screens exclusively on Netflix on March 23 all about the legendary Roxanne Shante aka Lolita Shante Gooden.
Produced by Pharrell Williams this gritty drama deals with Roxanne's early life and the trials and tribulations that take place as she suddenly becomes hip-hop's hottest property.

Fingers crossed that this will be a very worthy watch as hopefully the fact that this is not something that the world is screaming out for - no disrespect intended to the Queen of Rox - so maybe there will be a feeling of passion put into this rather than something just knocked out quickly because it's the flavour of the month.

The Return of Disco Scratch Radio - TONIGHT!

Tonight sees the return of Disco Scratch Radio back to our airwaves at 9pm just like it always was.
And word on the street is... this could well be a regular thing.

Disco Scratch Radio will be back on air tonight (Thursday 15th March 2018 @9pm) and Waxer is introducing a new section to the show for each live broadcast, entitled "ABU! in 3"
This part of the show is for any member of the Ageing B Boys Unite Facebook group who wishes to interact by selecting 3 records that represent them.
These records DO NOT have to be hip hop.
In fact you can have anything you feel represents you.

The general schedule for Disco Scratch Radio is a live show on the 1st and 3rd Thursdays of every month (with the ABU! in 3 section) and 2nd and 4th Thursdays being Polystylism/Digging 4 Victory and sometimes an official ABU! Podcast on the last Thursday of the month.

So how do you get involved?
Simply inbox us direct with your 3 selected record choices, a few lines about who you are and why you chose those records and any crew shout outs.

The Group Inbox address is here:

Wax will do the "ABU in 3" section just after his rant, "Views At Ten", so expect the ABU bit around 10.15pm.

Hope you can get involved and please remember, inbox only for submissions. That way we can discuss choices in the live chat.

Anything else?
Oh yeah, please try to get your submissions in at least a week before a scheduled show. The next live show will be next week 22nd so start getting them in!

Audi 5000...

Tune in tonight from 9pm at the usual place:
