Momma's got a brand new bag of Ho Ho Hoes


Mumma Said she's got a brand new bag of Ho Ho Hoes for ya all at her xxx mas bonanza. This Sat 19th Dec behind the Red Door.

Mr Glass & Robin Knight are joined with Ian Spicer for the Christmas party.... hold on, wait a minute, we have a late entrant.... special extra guest Del Larkin is dropping by for spin on the back of the national Skunkhour tour. There's also been talk of Miss Annie joining us.
To wet your appetite, here's a funk mix I did tonight. It starts off on the funky xmas tip and then keeps up the same deeper side of early 70's funk. The latter half is more on the breaks edge but heavily borrowed from the same sound. It gets a little random towards the end as I was digging around for something to wrap with, I settled on a modern Afro Jam.
I hope it gets you in the xmas spirit and primes you to join us on Saturday.

THRILLER Session Versions Leaked


So the session versions of Thriller have leaked onto the net. All 320kbps versions. Some tunes such as "Baby Be Mine" are sounding more dope than the finished versions.
And be sure to peep "Star Light" which was Thriller in it's original form..

Mike's song writer Rod Temperton wrote the title track as well as “Rock With You,” and three years later the prolific songwriter wrote the spooky aural horror film that was “Thriller.” Though the song was originally called “Starlight,” Jones insisted on a new title.

“I went back to the hotel, wrote two or three hundred titles and came up with ‘Midnight Man,’” Temperton once said. “The next morning I woke up and I just said this word. Something in my head just said, ‘This is the title’. You could visualize it at the top of the Billboard charts. You could see the merchandising for this one word, how it jumped off the page as ‘Thriller.’”

That's right y'all, Momma's back for a night of seductive treats & beasty soul. Nuff said, the flyer says it all...


As a bonus to this post, Iv also given you Another Cargo full of Soul. This is also the set I played live on Toon's Eastside Radio Show, The Vinyl Frontier on Wednesday night just past.
When putting a set together I like to give myself restrictions for the task at hand. Because I personally dug the last mix, I wanted to pull another Modern Soul mix out of the same bag. There were a few big tracks on some of the albums (yeah PC, my love is your love) that I didnt want to spunk on the first Cargo mix. You gotta leave a lil juice for your second shot.

Tracks are a combo of 7's, 12's & album cuts from plundered from Paul Carroll's personal collection & Des at DT Records
1. Jose Feliciano - Golden Lady
2. Isley Brothers - My love is your love
3. Margie Evans - Good thing queen pt 1
4. Kal ft Mr Tee - Whistle for you
5. William Eaton - Friends & lovers
6. Paulette Reaves - Its on me
7. Little Beaver - Concrete Jungle
8. David Ruffin - Love can be hazardous to your health
9. Archie Bell - Anytime is right
10. Rudy Love & the Love family - Disco queen
11. Love Committee - Just as long as I got you. (check out the recent Buster Rhymes sample)

Paradise Lost: Midnight Sun

Last night I had a vision.
We were in this beautiful warehouse.
It was filled with people, dancing and smiling UNDER THE MIDNIGHT SUN.
There was a guy in a lobster suit and a bear wearing a fez and lots of fruit. And the music... I've never heard music like that before. I asked who was playing and a voice said "Mikey Miutante, Brut33, DJ Silvio, James Bucknell, Harry Sounds and James Weirick".

Someone passed me a flyer, it read:

Paradise Lost

Under the Midnight Sun

Here's a sample of my UK & French plunder from the recent travels. Big shout out to Paul Carroll for allowing me to rape, pillage & liberate his collection of its doubles and to Des for allowing me to embark on soul mining expedition of his 70K plus vinyl collection. I also unexpectedly stumbled upon a few gems on my Paris trip.

Iv given you a predominantly Modern Soul mix, with a touch of Sweet Soul and some boarder line disco tracks on the end. All tracks are album cuts. I also landed a rather substantial booty haul of 12" & 7" as well. I'll be sure to lay some of that love on you in the coming weeks.

Here's the Cargo thus far....
1. Bruce Cloud: Walk in my shoes
2. Isley Brothers: Little Miss Sweetness
3. The Voices of East Harlem: Cashing in
4. Peabo Bryson: Let the music play
5. David Ruffin: It takes all kinds of people to make the world

Fight on: ALI OMAR 16/03/58 to 23/06/09

I chose "Fight on" instead of RIP, because just like the great Mohammed Ali was a fighter, so was Ali Bin Mohammed Omar. Not often with his fist but always with his voice, his heart and his actions. Ali fought the good fight for the underdog, for the independent merchants, the indigenous, the young and the old. He stuck it to the man and the empty leaders when they turned their backs on the small guy, the common man and the underprivileged. Although small in stature himself, he roared like the lions in Zion with his words and actions.

This mix is a collection of smoking beats and leftfield soul that remind me of Ali and his attitude to life. Its emotionally charged, so sit back, roll a fat one, pour a long one and enjoy. I hope you can feel a little of what Im saying in these tracks.

I can see the selecta now, still fighting the good fight. Ali's on stage, taking the mic off MJ, pushing both him & Farrah aside and sitting them in their places as he now prepares to shake down the universe's biggest stage in a rubbadub style.


Track listing
Intro: Ali Bombaye - Michael Masser & Mandrill (loop)
1. Same ol thing (ft Rich Medina) - J Boogie Dubtronic Science
2. I choose you - Nightmare on Wax
3. Sweet Music (ft Tony Moses) - J Boogie Dubtronic Science
4. SSS 002 - Super Smoky Soul
5. Sax & Violence - Phantom Slasher
6. The beat experience - Pepe Deluxe
7. Millers's Lattice - Harvey Lindo
8. Together (ft Jennifer Johns) - J Boogie Dubtronic Science*
9. Set your flag on fire - U -Tern edit
10. Acetate Prophets - Jurassic 5
11. Dusk you and me - Groove Armada
12. All that you give - Cinematic Orchestra*
13. Maggot Brain - Funkadelic*
Outro - Long road (loop)

*sorry for distortion on last couple of trax. Poor lil' Edirol dont like it if level's get hot.

funk throwdown












I played a little gig on Sunday night at Tonic, and although it wasn't well attended I still had fun and manage to rip an hour & half of funk straight of the desk live. So plug in and get off to my funk throwdown, it starts off with some more familiar soul-funk tracks as it then moves into deep funk, a touch of disco funk and rounds off with some more obscure Israeli funk & Afro funk. To be quite honest, Im pretty happy with it for a live set.
I'll go back over the mix for another listen in the next day or two and write up the track listing. If by chance I've not done this by the time you are reading the blog post, drop me a comment or a question and I'll let you know what some of the more obscure or unknown tracks are here.
Enjoy!

TONY ALLEN. The Godfather of Afro Beat

















Nigerian bandleader Tony Allen is coming to town. Known best by many as the former drummer and music director of the late Fela Kuti's band, Africa 70 from 1968 until 1979 and Egypt 80 organization.Tony Allen is regarded as the co creator of the Afro-beat sound, pioneering the unique beat and vibe of music which combines polyrhythmic influences of Africa with the breakbeats and extended jams of the American funk and R&B which reached Nigeria in the late 60s and early 70s. Afrobeat music has since re-influenced western dance music in fusion genres like broken beat and future jazz, as in the music of Bugz in the Attic. Allen as well refused to remain stagnant, incorporating dub and avant-garde hip-hop influences into his modern African dance music.

Niche Productions Presents, for the first time in Australia…Tony Allen

From Canada, Noel then went on a crate-digging expedition in NYC and Colombia and arrive home with a fresh booty of dusty grooves, some of
which he has dropped in this tasty lil disco boogie mix.

In all NB's sets you'll be treated to a fine selection of funk, disco, afro beat, soul, hip hop, breaks, dub, IDM and oddities, all precision mixed, sliced, diced and cut with the skills of a turntable surgeon. Noel’s latest party trick is a solo set on 4 turntables, where he splits tracks into parts for exlusive live remixing, using the other 2 decks for scratching and sound effects. Noel Boogie is also a member of Silent Partner - expect to hear much, much more from this incredible talent.
