Advent mix06: Baroque Dub Mixtape Seventeen : Party Frocs

Posted in

"Time for more of a jump-up good time after the last instalment's dark infused beats. A surprising hands-in-the-air remix of Múm's sublime experimental electronica gets the party started followed by two takes on Moroder's classic 'I feel Love' dance groove. The dub house disco continues all the way to Norman Cook's Mighty Dub Katz project before we get back to more familiar baroquedub territory with Closer's beats and breaks musings and Dry & Heavy's upfront dub explorations. What follows is a classic roots reggae chill-out - time to relax after all that partying, time to reflect with some serious conscious lyrics. Then sneak in a little xmas party smooching with Marcia Griffiths before heading home through moon-lit streets with Alex Kid and friends. Home by 3am, hopefully happy, content and ready for sleep."

Advent mix04: Dangerscouse - Bring Back The Funk

Posted in

"Another funky breaks mix similar to ‘Sound As…’ & ‘Party Animal’. Technically speaking this is one of my favourite mixes i.e. the mixing part went well (imo), but the volume levels at times were a bit erratic! Starts off midtempo, and builds to quite an energetic level at the end. Some new, some old, some classics and a re-make of a classic……Mixed live on my Denon CD decks…"

DUBSTA chapter 1

Posted in

Hi all - I haven't bought much in the way of new music this month - all the muso's must be too busy playing at muddy fests or sunning themselves on small islands!

So this gave me the chance to put a dub plate selection together - my kind of easy-listening music! I don't pretend to be an authority on dub - but I've been picking up these platters from shacks like Daddy Kool since the early eighties.

You'll find there's absolutely no structure or reason to the track ordering because it was very much a random pick and blend scenario - any connections between the tracks I would put down to the work of Jah!

****Don't forget to leave a comment while you're there or come and 'be-friend-me' at my MySpace!

Loads of thankyou's & bigups go out with this mix:
Firstly a huge mucho gratitudes to DJ Disse, who sent me a promo of his debut album "when I`m bored, I change colour" due for release this june 2007 - absolutely stunning work! There are two tracks taken from it that feature in the selection.

Also the maestro sent me a 12" which he was the 'brains' behind, 'Under my Dub' - a Stones re-dub - another corker!

Secondly I would like to a praise-up Billy aka the undercover hippy - for giving me his permission to use his awesome 'money money money' track. Hopefully you'll be able to catch up with the ever travelling man at a festival near you!

Thirdly a big thankyou to Jannis of jakarta records for helping out with the 'Drummies/Fireball' little seven.

And lastly to Mark Vidler (Go Home Productions) for supplying the 'top' & 'tails' for the mix!

Apart from that it's the usual funky/dubby selection here; some new, some classic, some old...

***Wanted to put this post up for some time now, but everytime I visit the Jelly Jazz website they've reached their server limit!
***If you visit and they are not active, try again at the start of the month!

As always the lovely peeps at the Lemon Jelly Forum always come up trumps to links to fab music. These mixes seem to be constantly playing on my pod!

Anyone who knows me and can't access the mp3's - drop me a line and I can put on a CD or something ;)

Jelly Jazz run a weekly club night based in Plymouth. They are one of the longest running club nights in the UK (13 years old!). Ever packed, ever funky, it plays host to some of the finest funky jazzy DJ's from across the globe!

There are five 5 st*r mixes availeable on their website - packed with top funky jazzy grooves!

Grab the mp3's here

There's no tracklisting at the moment - but I'm working on it!



Sorry about being away for a while - Easter holidays and all that!
During the break had a little fun and frustration in having a go at getting Glasto tickets. The on-line ticket portal seemed to be constantly down that Sunday!

Since the BIG one is coming into view I thought I'd post myself a few reminders:

First up 'Glastonbury The Movie' shot in 1993 comes out in July as a three disc special box set. Me and my bro were in the original film briefly - so looking forward to the extra footage.

Apparently on disk 2 there’s even a way of playing it so that it runs for 38 hours. They shot the lot; entire gigs, interviews, backstage, but most importantly the comings and goings of all the people who make Glastonbury what it is!

For more info visit Glastonbury The Movie @ MySpace

Here are the trailers:

Glastonbury The Movie DVD promo

It's funny for a 'joke' a couple of years back (I had a bit more time on my hands then!) I had the film on VHS and cut together all the atmospheric bits to a silly soundtrack I put together.

So dusting off the cobwebs here's the video:

As one half of Jazz Juice, DJ Graham B has notched up some of the biggest selling singles on the Freestyle label and has carved a niche for their own style of electronic infused samba and Latin music - winning over fans such as Gilles Peterson, Mr Scruff and Annie Mac along the way.

Following the huge success of his debut single "Sambamadness", Graham steps out on his own once again to deliver another dancefloor bomb. Utilising some familiar samples and a kicking hook "It's Alright Now" is a peak time crowd pleaser of epic proportions - already road tested at Messin Around and various other sessions around the country. Over on the flip, "Um Pesado Bossa" picks up where previous single "Riot In Rio" left off - samba style percussion, a funkin bass and some grooving guitar work.

'Drummies / Fireball' - Leeroy of Saian Supa Crew
7" / JAKARTA007
Tracklisting :
A1. Drummies
B1. Fireball

Jakarta Records are back with another limited seven, this time by a main player from French hip hoppers Saian Supa Crew. Here Leeroy delivers a Bollywood infected funk-breaks track "Drummies" (a rework of an old Ananda Shankar cinematic sitar-funk classic) featuring uptempo beats, sitar and flute plus the odd sample thrown in here and there. This is sure to get the dancefloor rockin! On the flip with "Fireball" we stick to the Indian-flavoured sound, but the tempo is slightly slower and the beats chunkier, creating a b-boy essential.

Under My Dub / It Will Never Dubben Again - RS / TH
12" / Balearic Biscuits BB05
Tracklisting :
A1. RS - under my dub
B1. TH - it will never dubben again

Balearic Biscuits presents two rock records re-edited in two very different ways for extended club play. "Under My Dub" is of course "Under My Thumb", an early song by the biggest rock band in the world The Rolling Stones. This mix dubs out most of Jagger's vocal and uses the main marimba hook of the track to create an evocative, repetitive dance-rock theme. "It Will Never Dubben Again" is a melancholic edit of Tim Hardin's gentle 1966 album track "It'll Never Happen Again", an early jazzy folk-rock touchstone. [Piccadilly]

The classic Rollin Stones ‘Under my Thumb’ comes under the radar of the Balearic Biscuits label for a remix. Looping the start adding their own delay effects and utilising the vocal to extenuate the remix. On the flip we have the sublime Tim Harding with his ‘It will never happen again’ dubbed and echoed to the max. [Fat City]

Let It Happen - Beatfanatic Remix / Mekano - Vangelis / Turelli
12" / GAMM gamm037
Tracklisting :
A1. Vangelis - Let it Happen (Beatfanatic's Balearic Boogie Remix)
B1. Turelli - Mekano

This latest addition to the GAMM family provides a blissful new version of an old Balearic fave courtesy of the Beatfanatic. "Let It Happen" by Vangelis and Demis Roussos is given a delicate drum beat and aural massage, turning it from an on obscure album track to a 12-minute rave-up! B-side "Mekano" by Turelli sounds like authentic Italo disco alright and has some great hooks, but we're quietly confident that this is a disco production of the 'nu' persuasion. [Piccadilly]

Stockholms favourite Balearic experimentalist delivers the goods once more for GAMM reworking a different disco gem for each side of this 12! Let It Happen is a sprawling mid tempo disco epic - the perfect end of night anthem perfectly re-made by the Swedish maestro. The Turelli edit on the flip cruises into uptempo boogie territory with a fun and frivolous early 80s club sound.... [Fat City]

Music Blog of the Week: Back In The Day

While listening to Dangerscouse's new mix on b00mb0x I discovered a track from the Coldcut stable I hadn't heard before; Steinski & Mass Media - It's Up To You (Television Mix) - Cheers Stu!

With the help of Google I tracked it down and found it was out as a Ninja Tune 12" (ZEN12 011) in 1992 and on the Coldcut and Steinski - 'No Rights Given or Implied: The Original Samplers' album (Bond Street BS 001) from 1993. This led me to find this music blog full of old school joints including that album to download! Enjoy

'Be Thankful For What You've Got' lyrics:
Though you may not drive a great big cadillac
Gangster whitewalls tv antenna in the back
You may not have a car at all
But just remember brothers and sisters
You can still stand tall
Just be thankful for what you've got
Though you may not drive a great big cadillac
Diamonds in the back, sunroof top, diggin the scene
With the gangster lean
For what you've got

You may not have a car at all
But just remember brothers and sisters
You can still stand tall
Just be thankful for what you've got
Diamonds in the back, sunroof top, diggin' the scene
With the gangster lean ooh ooh ooh
Though you may not drive a great big cadillac
Gangster whitewalls tv antenna in the back
You may not have a car at all
But just remember brothers and sisters
You can still stand tall
Just be thankful for what you've got
Diamonds in the back, sunroof top, diggin the scene
With the Gangster lean

Last week I couldn't get enough of One Blood's version of William DeVaughan's "Be Thankful For What You've Got". First heard on Papa Spark's 'Stop That Train 06' podcast at his Stop That Train blog. Big thanx again to the main man.

While waiting for b00mb0x to upload my new mix I found this on my travels - Bonobo's 2005 live ep, which had slipped me by even though I try and keep up with Simon Greens work. Big thanks to Ivanov Petrov Sidorov @ userfriendly for hosting the mp3's.

(Music) Blog of the Week: Peppermint Iguana

Posted in

This blog is not exactly a music blog (even though there are some great links to some excellent music here!) but the 'back stage' to the PEPPERMINT IGUANA HQ. Lots of info and reviews on Gigs, Festivals, Parties, Cd's, Books, Protests, travels, photography and Cardiff City FC. The blogs run by the word-smith and maestro Clint Iguana. Clint has been been giving out recommendations for this blog and the music + mixes over the last year(s?) so it was about time to repay the man! Click on the link and see what's going on in the welsh valleys - much more than here in sleepy Cambridge!


This is what Clint says about PEPPERMINT IGUANA:

"It first sprung into life in 1995 as a 'collective', a gang of mates from the Blackwood area of the South Wales valleys, putting on gigs, publishing a fanzine and running a website. We were motivated by the fact we had to travel miles to see most of the bands we liked and there was virtually nowhere to read about the scene that we loved. Over the next few years the gang put on 20 or so gigs with a mixture of local bands and big names from the 'underground' music scene; such as Tofu Love Frogs, P.A.I.N., Inner Terrestrials, Citizen Fish, Headmix, Tarrantism, Dubmerge, Astralaisa, New Model Army; published 4 fanzines and went through several versions of the website. Not exactly prolific, but we had a laugh and brought a little bit of fun to to the valleys. Life took its toll though, births, deaths, marriages, divorces, new jobs, redundancies, moving houses, going back to college... we had it all within the crew. So here we are, 2007 and Peppermint Iguana is not quite a collective anymore, just a very small band of radical groovers still trying to let the world know that there is a revolution going on and it's got a cracking soundtrack. We have been busy of late though and a new and improved website should be hitting cyberspace early 2007"
