ABU October Podcast #55 (Halloween) 2015

Well, Laydeez & Jellyspoons.....

Last week was supposed to be the monthly ABU Podcast . Sadly, technical gremlins got the better of me and I had no internet which meant I couldn't broadcast.
Happily, tonight is the postponed show so please get over to Disco Scratch and tune in to the session at 9pm (GMT).
Being that it is a 'Halloween Special' then expect a few ghostly tracks alongside the usual fare of what is a regular ABU show.
Don't forget to jump into the chatroom as well.

Earlybirds will get a dose of Mr Waxer's audio selections (usually between 9 - 10pm) and possibly some Easter Eggs after the show, too.

9pm - 11pm http://discoscratch.co.uk/radio/

Pip, pip! Tally-ho!
Squadron Leader 136.

Brand New Double Dee & Steinski Mix

Now, anyone who knows me well, musically-speaking, will know that I am a big fan of Steinski.
Having been immersed in the creative mastermixes of the early to mid-80s from Steve Stein and Douglas DeFranco it's fair to say that pretty much almost my whole musical production style has been influenced majorly by these two.

I came across this mix the other day and thought it was just something that I already owned from years ago. Wrong. It's a months-in-the-making, fresh-out-the-box brand-new mix.

I present to you a cut 'n' paste mix spectacular from the two masters of the genre, entitled 'Insanity Clause Mix'.
Download it quick before it burns the Internet down.

'Rubble Kings' - The Mixtape

This mix was compiled and assembled by Sammy Needlz, Rok One, DJ Tahleim, and the film's director Shan Nicholson (all incredible selectors and musical encyclopedias in their own right). Much like New York City itself, it is divided into five sections (based on the musical genres that influenced these notorious gangs). From the anthemic soul and funk of the Black struggle, to the salsa and Boogaloo of the Latin Barrios, to the gritty and abrasive psychedelic rock of White gangland. A true epic tale of war and peace, "Rubble Kings: The Mixtape" serves as a direct sonic glimpse into the heart and soul of this pivotal moment in the city's history.
For download and more info, visit www.RubbleKings.com

This is really great. The breaks at the latter part are well chosen and mixed brilliantly.

What Is 'Rap Music'?

Yes. Just what the fuck is this new music that all the kids are doing these days with their scratchy records and that?

Early days in hip hop's history with the written media. It was all so new and exciting.

Kool Covers A Mix by DJ Format

This photo is just for illustrative purposes only. Clicking will produce no audio of any kind. In fact the only sound that will occur will be the enraged fury emitted from your lips upon discovering that this is only a photo. Blame Mixcloud for their non-widget-embedding antics. Go on, write a stern email to them.

If you missed out on DJ Format's last 45 then this 30-minute mix of Kool & The Gang covers might be enough to keep you going until you can stump up the extortionate Discogs prices.

Featuring tracks from Amral's Trinidad Cavaliers Steel Orch., Ed Watson & The Brass Circle, Grant Green, Zap Pow, St. Peter & Paul C.H.S. Shooting Stars Steel Band and more. This is highly recommended. And not to mention, free.

Sophie Bramly's Photos Of The 80s Hip Hop Scene

Mike D, MCA, Adrock, Rick Rubin & Russell 'Rush' Simmons

Anyone reading this blog who had access to cable in the late 80s/early 90s will have eagerly watched their regular installments of the European version of Yo! MTV Raps with the French host Sophie Bramly.
Before she hosted the classic video show she was on the streets and in the clubs of New York City in the late 80s documenting on camera some of hip hop's legendary characters. She now makes "female-orientated" porn.
Lovely stuff.

These pictures are the sort of stuff that brings me out in a cold sweat, quickly spiriting me away to a more friendly place where creativity spoke louder than money. I was never there but one look at these photos make it seem as if I was.
