amharic

v/a – Amharic (Greensleeves Riddim #46) Obviously this has been out for approximately a million years on JA pre 7″ and indeed for 6 months in this form. It ain’t my fault people kept on getting the copy out of the library, ok? But it’s great – a rare beast of a one-riddim LP you …

Blacka T “Run Come Ya” (Rockers) “But some deejay a mash up Jamaica Dem a talk ’bout slackness Dats outta order Anything me chat a roots and culcha…” Blacker T, self styled lyrics ambassador, lives up to his title chanting his verse in vigorous style over a suitably insistent digital rhythm.

v/a – Voice Crack Remixes (Ambush CD5)

Business as usual for the first 10 seconds – Hrvatski’s tearing amens, noise, adrenaline… but what’s this? It all fades out into a beatless noise montage with detuned guitars phasing away, and there’s just a tinge of squawking saxophone in there too. It’s Ambush’s very own ‘Jazz Odyssey’! “No, I said DJ Scud ABOVE the …

ngozi ngozi ngozi… gone

Ngozi – roots riddim of the year so far. A sort of watery, medieval soundscape with lots of plucked strings and that bassline, pulling you down. Inevitably this has been caned by Rodigan in the weeks before payday so that I’ve only been able to get hold of two of the cuts – the rest …

“Sounds of Ethiopia stepping out of Babylon; sounds of Zion stepping out of Stoke Newington. JAH Tapper Zukie, King of sounds and blues, rocking the musical atmosphere, under heavy duty manners…” – Penny Reel 7:00am Stamford Hill and the cold is biting into my shoulders like something highly metaphorical that I am sure I would …

2003 best of part four

Pointless, now, surely to produce the fanfared second part of k-punk’s end of the year round-up – only eight days into the year and all that stuff just seems so old. He’s right of course, but I notice it doesn’t actually stop him doing it either 😉 Under the counter, guv 1. 2 x CDRs …

whaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaat-evah!

Big up Jason Aphasic for the first release on J U N K. Possibly one of my records of the year. Two out and out hardcore junglist stormers (one of which was the climax to his last Sick & Twisted DJ set – features everything but the kitchen sink, including some utterly stoopid happy hardcore …

my week of mash up noise part 3

Sick and Twisted, Friday night S&T is becoming a bit of a regular event for me. Which is a good thing, because it\’92s one of those excellent, little clubs which has its own scene going on with fiercely loyal regulars who are by and large a nice and friendly bunch. I generally only head up …
