Wine with it



Now that the UK is the full grip of global warming and summer has already started, I'm feeling like we need some summer jams. This is on the soundtrack to Boogie nights. Kinda 70s latin stoner funk.

Mas Mais




Some other music snacks that you should check out if your hungry :

If you liked my cumbia post, go and check DJ/Rupture's Mudd Up with some tasty cumbia radio mixes.

Masala radio is pretty much faultless every week. Download the shows and keep them forever.

Wayne and Wax has made an ingenious sampledelica mix of the Zunguzung tune originally sung by Yellowman. Confused ? I am. Go listen and you'll see what I mean.

Kicks like a Mule




When grime meets ragga. Its a good thing. This is a heavy Wiley dubplate of the classic Eskimo riddim with a vocal from Harry Toddler (vinyl rip).

Rascit Heat



Dizzee's new album, Maths & English, is just round the corner and I'm excited as a Pussyhole. Here's some exclusive white label vinyl rips you might not have heard before.

When Wiley first found Dizzee he got him to lay down some bars for a Roll Deep track. This is Dizzee's first ever recording.

This is a sick instrumental he put out just before Showtime was released.

Gigi


I generally listen to hectic music most of the time but sometimes you gots to chill. Gigi is massive star in Ethiopia and she is selling lots of records all over the world. I think this song is fucking beautiful.

Cumbia Rave Buses



In South and Central America local buses are privately owned. This means if you've got a bus you can deck it out how you want. The buses are all in competion with each other, so to get arses on seats they have to come up with jazzy ideas. The rave bus is particulalrly popular with school kids. Super loud soundsytems, internal UV lighting etc. Impromptu dancing / drinking is encourgaged. And if you don't like it, you can get off.

Lots of them, particularly in Panama like this one, play Cumbia music beacaue its popular and sounds good when your on the road. Kind of like Houston screwed and chopped stuff. This is a great little Cumbia song. My mate tells me that the rapper used to be in terrible Mexican rap band but we both agreed this is hot. Its on the soundtrack to Babel.
