Most of last week was spent putting Woofahs in envelopes, getting it into shops and telling people about how great it is. Which was and is, a good laff. Here’s a quick run down of some other stuff tho:
Paul Meme has an album coming out! And some other stuff I don’t know if I can tell you about yet! He’s been played by Mary Anne Hobbs on Radio one and Blackdown and Dusk on Rinse FM. It’s all sounding very good indeed.
Paul is interviewed about the project in Tom Lea’s new column in Fact Magazine, which includes a free downloadable grime mix from DJ Magic of Dirty Canvas fame.
Melissa Bradshaw now has a blog called Decks and the City, which you should all check, not least so you can see the context to the phrase “I was totally even more bewildered than Coki with the tits girl.”
Heatwave’s outstanding An England Story set has been getting some great reviews including a full pager in the Guardian guide at the weekend. They have a 12″ out on Soul Jazz also and more to follow. Their Roots Reality and Culture mix for Blogariddims has stopped me going postal in the post office on more than one occasion. This is just some of the news posted on their blog, which you need to check out on the regular.
Other stuff I’ve been checking includes:
Trim – Soulfood 3 mixtape
Riko – The Truth mixtape
David Rodigan presents Real Authentic Reggae Music comp (BBE)
Eek A Mouse – Most Wanted (Greensleeves)
Triston Palmer – Joker Smoker (Greensleeves)
Zareb – The Cake Must Slice (Greensleeves)
v/a – This is Lovers Rock (Greensleeves)
all of which comes highly recommended. Oh and some material for a blogariddims mix me and Paul are working on.
I’m sure I’ve missed a load of stuff out, it’s hectic times.
