Some of you may experience issues logging in and will get an 'incorrect password' error. Don't worry, you haven't typed it in wrong and your password hasn't been changed. You will need to reset it though in order to log in. Click the reset password link and you will receive an email with your new temporary password.

Any other problems or questions just let me know.

Just a little thread for those of us who appreciate stuff at the other end of the scale from the more popular (on here, at least) rock side of things.

 

So, to get us started, Gilles' show this week is a tribute to John Lucien and Max Roach who both died last week. It's jazz-tastic. Nice.

Nice indeed. Not really much to add, though I am quite enjoying bits of the new Camp Lo LP. And I bought a J Dilla compilation which had a couple of really nice remixes of Brand New Heavies which I'd never heard before.

Which one? There's a plethora of stuff that's been released since he died (inevitably, I suppose).

It's called Jay Deelicious: the Delicious Vinyl Years 1995-1998

 

There's not that much on there thatI don't already have, but the Brand New Heavies tunes were a very pleasant surprise, as Acid Jazz has never really been my bag. I mainly bought it so I could review it for a job I am applying for, so it was nice that there were a few gems I'd never heard.

Madlib is headlining a Stones Throw night Dublin in October, should be ace. Mos Def is playing as part of the same festival.

 

Sounds ace. The only problem with Madlib is that he can be very, very leftfield sometimes. I mean, I'm all for leftfield, but he can disappear up his own arse in a fug of hydroponic smoke. I so want to get into Yesterday's New Quintet, but it's all just too much out there jazz for my taste. I lovee Quasimoto, Loot Pack and Jaylib, though.

Yeah, it's really only the Madlib, Quasimoto and Jaylib stuff I'm familiar with. Beat Konducta was fantastic, some of the best instrumental hip hop I've heard. Don't know why he left most pieces at under two minutes though.

Benji B is on a one-man mission to show the world that hip hop is still going strong away from all the commercial shite that almost killed it. New tunes from Black Milk and J Live to open the show and plenty more soulful delights later on. I especially love the Ta'Raach tune Baaaby that's on the new Fat City compilation Producer No. 1. It samples one of my favourite tunes, You're Welcome, Stop On By by Vicki Anderson (mother of Carleen, aunty of Jhelisa and wife of Bobby Bird).

Loving that tune Premier's done for Kanye's new album, too.

 

I'm listening to that show as I browse the GF. I like to think it nuetralised some of the more viceral comments I thought of upon reading the atheism thread. The acid and alkali balancing out well possibly?

Anyone into that "West Landan, innit?" broken thing? I reckon it's very, very hit and miss, but some of it is fucking ace (the Bugz mix of Hold It Down by 4Hero and Loose Lips by Seiji spring to mind). Just past the hour mark on the above show, he drops a couple of tunes back to back that would be fucking mental in the club. Not what you'd call easy listening, but I'd love to hear them getting played out.

Could I also suggest that anyone listening to Deviation avoids the utter nonsense he plays from between roughly 75 to 105 minutes in to the show.

It's one of Gilles' Brownswood Basement shows on Worldwide this week. Basically that means he goes round to the terrace house he uses to keep his record collection in and digs out loads of old, rare or little known gems and makes an entire show out of them. There's always something ace that you've never heard before. Here it is:

Love some of the bruk stuff, anything by 4hero, IG Culture, Phil Asher, Kaidi.

Gilles had a Heavy Hitters profile on the Sonar Kollektiv record label on Worldwide last night. Very, very, very soulful stuff, not much of which I own. I'll be rectifying that gap on my shelves forthwith. Check it:

> Moonstarr – ‘Detroit’ (Sonar Kollektiv)

 

This is an absolutey amazing track.

Triple ace Paul. Doom is the truth.

 

Are you onto Bullion (4th track in)? I've never heard of him/them, but the MC's got a bit of a Guru flow and the tune's a proper head nodder.

Gilles is right on a soul and jazz tip this week. Loads of old stuff I've never heard before and also plenty of new, including one called Believer by Paul Randolph who's worked with Amp Fiddler and Carl Craig's Innerzone Orchestra.

 

Dirk, there's few on here that you might like. I remember you said you liked the samba/jazzy things on one of my mixes. After the weird aberration of The Klaxons (he has to wear his eclectic credentials proudly every week), there are a few things of a similar ilk to those on that mix.

 

Get on it, soul boys:
