Trax from the Crypt

Last week's transmission of VoodooRadio from West London's finest InnaCity FM, now up on my mixcloud.

That's myself the Jambie djing gritty rave & boyment for the first and last bit, and that's me also slurring sh*t over Ray Nulds' funkitechystep slot in the middle.

As I say, we do this every two weeks...I reeeaaally enjoyed myself on this one.

City In Darkness

Wicked new tune from Kalbata - previous Warrior Queen collaborator and general big bwoy producer coming straight outta Israel.

As a quick and shameless plug; Catch me tomorrow on InnaCity FM (!) for my bi-weekly regular radio show alongside fellow VoodooRaver Ray Nulds .

4 till 6 pm GMT. Make sure you're locky!!

Happy Friday everybody. DO watch that buff weather, and have a nice weekend.

XTC Shining Down On Me

It ain't nuttin but mo hot 92 sh*t.

Cyan get enough of these absolutely dope golden era pirate setzz!!!! Rave education right here. It's so nuts that they're all just sitting there online for free.

YouTube, ya bad!

This one's a clip from a 4hr Kool FM 1st Birthday special, with man like DJ Red Alert running down all the biggest tracks of the year. So you know you're in for a treat.

Catch a rush.

Smooth FM - pt.IV

Another one from the mothership.

Nice era this was. Lots of wicked new sounds coming through.

Mad sexy, bare funky.

Smooth FM - pt.III

Carrying on the series of broadcasts on all things sm00th, how about this one from manz like Pat Metheny & Co.

I could listen to that track over and over again - it just sounds so good.

To me there are echoes of all sorts of things to come in here.

Really nice music.

Boss DJ

Just some more Jah Mason love.

Happy Monday everybody.

Gimme A Moment

Just found this gem on YouTube.

Unfortunately can't find out anything about it, riddim, record label etc, but it is a great big tune.

Bless up Jah Mason, each and every.

Smooth FM - pt.II

Gots to be man like Grover Washington J.R-to-the-izzle up in here for the second of my very smooth instalments.

Quite a few of his early to mid 70s funkier stuff got sampled by Hip-Hop producers, which even at its hardest was still pretty damn laid back, but from there on things just kept getting smoother and smoother.

My favourite tune is probably a track called Paradise off his 1979 album of the same name. Starts off pretty f*cking mellow, and then actually gets knock out when that lick kicks in. Check it.

Man went on to play Sax on this track with man like Bill Withers, which did really well (and was later sampled by these boys).

Serious talent. In the words of one dude on YouTube; "this song makes people want to have sex."

Noice. Enjoy.

Smooth FM

'Come take me up tonight...Don't have another day, right?'

Following a friendly request, I'm going to do some posts on tunes that I rate from the smoother end of the Gullyside.

I'm really just in it for the originals - but the first tune might do well to have big man like Havoc (of Mobb Deep notoriety)'s seal of approval highlighted - really just to solidify the very real Ghetto cred behind these trax.

This one's from the mid 70s.

Above - Please note how Mr Connors makes that nautical ting look straight up gangsta.

Big man ting.

Good Times O RLY?

We love road. You love...kylie minogue???

Happy Ragga

Or maybe even, pop-y ragga??

It's certainly happening, and it's certainly different.
