Double Dee & Steinski - Lesson 4: The Beat EP

It's finally here.
Double Dee & Steinski's new release is a continuation of their infamous 'Lessons' series from 30 years ago and is (unsurprisingly) entitled, Lesson 4.
Believe me this is a sprawling, full-on assault on your ears with breaks and samples hitting you from every direction and some 'just right' spoken audio carefully laid on top.
Now enlisting the talents of master turntablist, ADA, the group is untouchable. Lesson 4 has really been worth the long wait. Check out the bang you get for your buck. That's 5 versions of the song. And if you join the mailing list at their official website then you may even get a special limited, one time only discount code to download this fine audio swag.
This is going to take some close inspection to decipher a lot of what the guys have done here but who cares, the fact that they are still providing for their fans is just enough. Hell, they could've just released themselves coughing over a beat and I still would've lapped it up.

Listening back, I'm sure I've heard (and probably have a download) of an early version of this song as that guitar refrain is very memorable as is the Richard Pryor dialogue at the start.

It's The Discooooo Snatch!

Check out the very beginning of this mix from DJ Sarah Love (I always say that name with Coronation Street's Gail Tilsley's voice).
Hmm, seem familiar?

DIG Mag Issue 2 Review

Issue 2 of DIG magazine landed through my door recently and I was really anticipating it's release.
Not much has changed since the first issue which is a good thing as it already contains the perfect format - great design, easy to read, simple facts AND a lovely soundtrack to accompany it.

If you're lucky, for £3.50 you can own this brilliant little mag (no bigger than the size of a CD booklet) - I say that as stocks of the launch issue were flying off the shelves and 3rd print had to be produced to satisfy demand.

This is a great way to discover new (old) music from people who love to go looking for obscure records in all manner of places from all over the world. If you consider yourself a 'digger' then this read should be right up your alley.
Here's a list of contributors to issue 2:

Contributors in this issue include:

A Cat Called Fritz
DJ Baila
DJ Supreme La Rock
Jonny Trunk
Jorun Bombay
Mr. Brown
Good Life
Richard Wilson
Ski Oakenfull
Sven Atterton

If you fancy writing about a particular song you've ever found then let the DIG peeps know and you can be featured, too.
