How cool is this..

Wednesday, May 4th, 2011

Tape recording uploaded to YouTube from Manchester Pirate Radio from 1994! Nothing like recording to tape then rewinding it so many times it get chewed up in the tape player! This is parts 1 &2 of 6 purely because it was the first I came across. You can find the rest under the related videos…it’s too sick such a flashback!

Flashback…

Fabolous never fails to deliver…Neyo needs to go back to making decent RnB as with the rest of the music industry….When exactly did it start going wrong? Who was the first RnB artist to think it was a good idea to release Europop/Dance shit!? … Answers on a postcard?

Tracks of my years

Sunday, March 6th, 2011

I’m a big Ken Bruce fan, no denying that. Radio 2 is the daily listen in the office! One of the features that stand out is “Tracks of my years”. This is where a different person each week picks two tracks daily that have special meaning to them or just stand out for them!

So these are my tracks of my years all in one post, and a short description as to why they are in here! There are so many more I could include but these are the first ten that came into my head, so we will go with these…

Vinyl Purchase

Saturday, November 6th, 2010

My latest purchase is Blue Magic – Magic #. I only really got it for one track “See Through” that I heard on a Funhouse session but on listening to the whole album I’m really feeling it proper funky/soul vibe to it, just what I love!

If anyone knows of similar sounding albums let me know I’d love to grab some more I know there must be loads out there I’m just not sure what to look for…

The Answer to my Big Pun post…

Friday, October 29th, 2010

Back in September I posted this… http://www.rb-music.co.uk/2010/09/09/where-have-i-heard-this-before/

p.s. I think something around 2000/2002 sounding similar or if not an 70/80s track that contains the words(?) “dubby doo,run,run,run” < yes I did try googling that!

Well the answer to this post is the following….Thanks to DJ MK for dropping this on a Funhouse session….

Granted it sounds nothing like Big Pun but I can kind of see my thought process…

Saturday Night…Funk

Saturday, October 23rd, 2010

It’s 23:50 on a Saturday night and instead of going out to town I am at home searching on Youtube for anything that takes me fancy mainly Soul/Funk…

Here’s some bits and bobs I’ve found (proof there are too many beat makers in the industry today and not enough musicians)… This is obviously a tiny selection of 1000’s of tunes I’m/We are yet to discover – this what makes older music much more fun to be into! Let’s face it if I was out in town I know exactly what I’d be hearing Gaga, Derulo, Euro Pop Dance shit…. I much rather this…..
