YOUNG MONTANA - SACRE COOL

YOUNG MONTANA - SACRE COOL


you know sometimes a producer flips a track and you think.. wow that was really clever! but then sometimes a producer flips a track and your jaw is left on the floor.

This is one of the most interesting examples of sampling I've heard in a while or maybe it was because I love the o.g so much it excited me? But to be honest I think it's because it opened my mind to the prospect of flipping all those boogie joints I love so much rather than the usual jazz, soul samples I normally use. Hats off to you "Young Montana" f@#$ing killed it!!!!!!
p.s to hear the o.g look below!

CHEMISE - SHE CAN'T LOVE YOU

CHEMISE - SHE CAN'T LOVE YOU

FATIMA

WARM EYES.

really feeling this joint at the moment Fatima who shares her time in between Stockhom and london has a great vibe and is working with some dope producers.

this track she has collaborated with one of my favourite artists of the past few years "DAM-FUNK". In his usual style of sweet synth lines and 808 drums his presence is undeniable.

look out for her follow up EP with deep house producer " Floating Points" .

DOROTHY ASHBY

AFRO - HARPING

One of those albums I put off picking up for years (mostly due to the fact that an O.G isn't easy to find), But when this parcel arrived at my door today It was time to make a cup of tea put my slippers on, roll a spliff and get down to some serious, hardcore zoning out.

The Fact this record came out in 1968 blows my mind it's so progressive! Richard evans stood in as producer and conductor which can only mean good things.

In all honesty this could be a contender for one of my favourite all time records, seriously dope the whole way through. Put this on the "Highly recommended" list and file under "Super awesome afro jazz harp breaks".

Pure Bliss

upon sharing the turntables with the amazing Dj, hennesey and newport enthusiast and all round nice guy"Houseshoes" from detroit recently. I began going through the crates for detroit breaks, funk e.t.c. I had completely forgotten about this jazz funk masterpiece out of the motor city.

some great vibes work on this track that would make roy ayers blush. The whole album is dope though make sure to check it out.

MAYER HAWTHORNE

this tune has been out for a minute but it wasn't till I heard the Jazzy Jeff roller boogie remix that i really starting playing it.

the words "Jazzy jeff's roller boogie mix" would pretty much make me buy anything. The day you get Jeff on the remix is the day you know your going somewhere.

big love out to Mayer for this feel good mid tempo jam.

SOM TRES

SOM TRES self titled Lp from 1969

heavy Brazillian breaks. Absolute dance floor fire here at homenagem a mongo.


dope.




DO IT TO THE MAX

XAVIER'S 1981 release "Point of Pleasure" is a dope boogie Lp featuring "work that sucker out", "Love is on the one" and my personal favourite "Do it to the Max".

A slow burning fat bassline sounds like a more modern nu disco joint. Very Sleazy and I cant be sure but I think Xavier's a Pimp.
Enjoy.









MARCELLUS PITTMAN

Marcellus Pittman hailing from detroit on a deep housish tip kicks off with a boogie break I know i have some where but can't put my finger on which one it is, if anyone can help I would appreciate.

this tune is ill and worth checking out if you dig his stuff check him out on juno for more.

this beat tape was for Haiti so to buy full tape follow this link http://www.juno.co.uk/ppps/products/1536241-02.htm?highlight=DEBRUIT

DEBRUIT

DEBRUIT

an artist, beatmaker from france who is killing it right now to take a quote from his bio.

debruits music is a no holds barred assault through dark congolese soundsystems, downtown L.A block parties gone wrong, haze filled kingston recording studios and freaky tunisian backstreet souks, all powered by a fat hip hop engine.

sounds great to me

BLACK ICE

Monster Funk here at "Shakedown" from the 1976 self titled album from "BLACK ICE"

Shakedown is a 7 minute funk assault and extremely good for the dancefloor.


ALFREDO LINARES

Alfredo linares is such an important figure in Colombian salsa. He was responsible for completely changing the way salsa piano was played forever. He Now resides in Cali Colombia and is a member of Uk artist Will Hollands new project "Quantic's Combo Bario".

This album "Mi Nuevo ritmo" contains the dope "Ritmo Caliente" and "Alma Y Sentimiento" . Although the whole album is incredible.

This Friday

Okay so The Manor has been going straight chaos the last few with "The Stoops"http://www.facebook.com/TheStoopsOfficial

kicking off the first of our live sessions and doing a damn fine job. Arms in motion , royce and yours truly on the decks holding it down.
But last week was "Houseshoes" from detroit who held it down for 3 hours with straight fire, detroit hip hop and funk and some previously unreleased Dilla action to boot. Hats off sir.

This week comes "Boogie Down Under 5" with Zeus rock spinning some classic B Boy break material and Dj Junior (3 time WA dmc champ) with an hour set of pure turntable surgery.

I'll be spinning some boogie some funk and old school jams to keep the place jumping till the wee hours. NOT TO BE SLEPT ON PEEPS!!!!

NEW BEAT


Okay so here is the latest jam, kinda like a brazilian, hip hop future beat with a mellowed out synth bridge. catch the DL here


What Think Twice is listening to

okay so I admit I slept on this mix for a while finally giving it a listen today and I gotta say its my new favourite mixtape. "Beat Junkie" "J rocc" aka "The funky president" lays down some dope breaks in his signature slice and dice style while keeping it sounding super fresh and head nodable. get the DL here

http://soundcloud.com/stussy_japan/j-rocc-some-cold-rock-mix
"CINNAMON SUNS", Just picked this LP up and it cost a pretty penny believe me.

Some tropical funk vibes coming out of "Trinidad" The hottest track is "Party time" No one needs to edit this at all its just pure fire already.

would make a nice transition from funk to tropical music easily.


"Toni Tornado" taken from the album BR3. "Me Liberte" sweet slice of brazilian funk I thought i had struck gold until I realised "NASA" had already used this for their track "Hip Hop" featuring Krs1.
