BSOTS 074 - blends session: ain't we got fun...
Now Playing: get out and vote collabocast (rhythmsinblacksatin.com)
Topic: my podcasts

while recording my voiceover for this show, there was a tickle in my throat that threatened to take me out. it snuck up on me and totally caught me by surprise, resulting in a coughing fit that i wasn't ready for. no, that hasn't been captured for posterity on this show, but as a result, the talking had to be kept to a minimum. and besides that, it's another blends session, which always means more music and less talk.

for anyone wondering what the first minute of this show is all about, it's a radio promotional trailer for the human tornado, a movie starrring the late rudy ray moore a.k.a. DOLEMITE, actor, comedian, r&b singer (!), and a brother that's been rappin' long before rap music got off the ground. in his own words, "i was through with it before they knew what to DO with it!" his routines were mad raunchy, his movies were action-packed and straight-up outlandish, and i know that there are a bunch of heads who will miss this brother.

this blends session is definitely on some get-up-and-dance type stuff. i'm a dj who likes making people move, and this mix cuts right to the chase with a serious banger from the budabeats netlabel. crookram's "biggles" is definitely something i can see the b-boys and b-girls showing off their best moves to. tom caruana follows that up with the percussion heavy "sounds that surround you" - totally floored me the first time i heard it. then it's off to the netherlands with kraak & smaak, an awesome trio (no, they're not a duo) with a great midtempo number from their boogie angst album from 2006. scion a/v comes through with a lovely remix: dj ayres taking on the 45 king/wale cut, "roof." mr. dé provides a hot shuffler with "please believe it" and then ghostface killah takes over with "charlie brown." between his lyrical fury and the horn section, it packs quite a punch.

seeing as how i can't stay away from the soul and funk, what better label to bring it than brooklyn's own daptone records? loving this cut from charles bradley ("now that i'm gone"). after that, we bring it back to some hip-hop: an older joint from delinquent habits, a cool instrumental from dj dope, and a wicked mark bell remix for deltron 3030's "turbulence." further boom bap contributions include singles from dl incognito and jah-c (check the youtube video above). after that, a world music jam i've been wanting to drop on y'all for a while: hassan el soghayer's "baba shakene," solidifying the belief that harmonic hotness is a global phenomenon. GOD BLESS IODA PROMONET.

if that's not enough, then perhaps all eight minutes of "holy ghost" by the barkays will get you caught up in the spirit of things. in the immortal words of the chief rocker frankie crocker, this mix is designed to put "more dips in your hips, more cut in your strut, more glide in your stride...if you don't dig it, you KNOW you gotta hole in yo' soul..." seriously though, i hope this one's to your liking (lol)...
