    Records you say?

    What's all this?

    Er.....well I've had a bit of luck buying second hand Hip Hop so mine is mostly made up of that and some new things:

    Old(er) stuff:

    Jacksoul - Unconditional Love (Jinxx)
    Ace soul tune from '94

    Kamaal The Abstract - Album Sampler (Arista)
    Previously only had the bootleg of the whole LP, so it was nice to get the official EP out of a box of 90's jiggy Hip Hop promos.

    Showbiz & AG - Fat Pockets radio remix (Payday)
    The Flavor Unit MCs - Roll Wit Tha Flava (Epic)
    Common Sense - Soul By The Pound (Relativity)
    3 x great early 90's Hip Hop 12"s

    Archie Whitewater - Archie Whitewater (Cadet Concept)
    Cross Country sounds lovely in the summer!

    New(er) stuff:

    Dwele - Subject (Virgin)
    At last! After years it gets an official release. Solid LP IMO

    Sara Devine - The Truth (Columbia)
    Great new soulful r&b release. Yikes did I mention r&b on this site!

    Georg Levin - I Got Somebody New (Sonar Kollektiv)
    I missed this when it came out late last year, so I was glad to get this last week.
    He also contributed songs for the Jim Henson movie vehicle 'Muppets From Space'.

          I'm listening to the City of God OST - Amazing film about kids in the favela's of Rio.

          The score is full of comedy jazz funk, latin folk, batacuda and a cover of a zannini track!

          The only criminal thing is that it wasn't released on vinyl.  

          All on the playlist is 'The Farm' - Innermost limits of pure fun. This an OST to an australian surf film - full of psychy rock, hammmond and just plain madness. Its a bit good.

            All I&#39;m gonna say is... YOU LUCKY BUGGERS &#33;&#33;&#33;&#33;

            At 5am on Tuesday morning, a f*ck-off huge bolt of lightning hit my neighbours house and subsequently destroyed my Technics amp, CD player, sound processor and tapedeck.

            OK, I can claim on the old insurance like, but it means I&#39;m now without tunes for a couple of weeks and will get a kicking from some of Darlo Massive for not providing this weekends party with the necessary C90 mix &#33;

            ...  will get some    action on my scrawny ass &#33;&#33;

            BUT&#33; one lucky break - the 1210&#39;s and the fancy-pants Numark mixer are all working OK... phew&#33; OK, I can listen to records through the headphones, but it ain&#39;t gonna be much good when Towny Boy cruises &#39;round on his Pimp-Racer tonight for our usual Thursday nite beer-chuggathon &#33;&#33;

            If you're looking for a pristine copy then this isn't the one for you. The vinyl looks like someone has polished their brickwork with it and the label has been ruined by some fool with a pen.

                CD of Mondo Candido by Riz Ortolani - sadly I&#39;m at work and am glad the PC comes equipped with a CD drive. Doubt they&#39;d take kindly if I asked for a turntable....
                Enthusiastic vagueness passes for scholarship in the twilight world of the disc-jockey.

                              Did you see the movie ? It&#39;s a really great one.
                              The only sure and foreseeable attribute of human affairs is their unforseeability; hence the trivialility of all the attempts in order to reduce the human action to a single reason, even interest.
