Saw this in a charity shop today, and I wondered if the sleeve is where Michael Jackson got the inspiration to do the iconic cover for his 'Thriller' LP?

Harvey McKay's remix of 'Disco Loco' is 1000 flavours of epicness. It's a fantastic peak-time disco-tinged Techno tune that will get the dance floor going crazy.

R.I.P. Mike - Will be missed dearly, Thank you for designing the sleeve of my first album + collaborating with me on 'Chase That Money' with Freddy Fresh. It's been an honour working with such talent.

Really lovely tune - Reminds me of 'What's Going On' era Marvin Gaye. The remixes from Cooly D are really good not forgetting the remixes from JayDee (Plastic Dreams) and The Wiseguys too!

Absolutely stellar album from Chevron, who hails from the wonderfully tacky place known as Blackpool. Favourite tune would have to be 'Branches', which I initially heard on a Fake Blood DJ Mix. It's a really innovative and eclectic tune that combines ... Voir l'avis en entier

I'd presume 1979 or 1980 to cash in on the success of Sugarhill Gang and early rap.

This is a fantastic mixtape series - Love the way F.B. cuts up classic funk/jazz/library records that were sampled in golden era Hip-Hop tunes, which make you go "hey - that's where so-and-so got that sample from!". Highly recommended.

We all know she is REALLY singing “Bill Oddie, Bill Oddie, Rub Your Beard All Over My Body” - For those who don’t know, Bill Oddie is a famous Bird Watcher in the UK and one third of the comedy trio - The Goodies. The song was written at the time Madge ... Voir l'avis en entier

Really enjoyed the latest album from Tom and Ed Chemical - Great to see the spirit of Big Beat is alive and well in 2019! Best tracks would have to be 'Bango', 'Got To Keep On', 'Gravity Drops' and the acid banger that is 'MAH'. Highly recommended for ... Voir l'avis en entier

One of the funkiest Hip-Hop productions ever courtesy of the Ummah, who were the late J.Dilla, Q-Tip and Ali Shaheed Muhammed. RIP to both the amazing Phife Dawg from Tribe Called Quest and of course J.Dilla
a posté un commentaire sur The Wiseguys - Ooh La La. 3 months ago
Incredibly funky Big Beat track that never gets old. Always gets the dance floor going at Clubs, Festivals, Weddings, Bar Mitzvahs etc, and it hasn't aged a single day. The B-Side is also really good - very chilled Native Tounges-esuqe Hip-Hop.
a posté un commentaire sur Time Zone - Throw Ya Funky Hands Up. 4 months ago
The instrumental version of this record was very influential in the 1990's Big Beat music scene in the UK, notably tunes such as Fatboy Slim's 'Gangster Tripping' were very heavily influenced by it.

Beatle fangirls - be careful for what you wish for! A photo of John Lennon in the nude isn’t a pretty sight (or Yoko for that matter!).

Excellent documentary about one of the greatest rock & roll bands (and potty-mouthed hedonists) of all time. The only criticism would be that their famous beef with fellow Britpoppers, Blur doesn't get any mentions (despite being all over the Newspapers ... Voir l'avis en entier

Great trio of mixes of the tune 'F**k Me Pumps' from Amy's first album 'Frank'. MJ Cole's remix is classic UK Garage, while Mylo (who did the track 'Destroy Rock & Roll') does it in a Fatboy Slim-esque Big Beat style (which suits my sets perfectly) and ... Voir l'avis en entier

John Lennon and Ringo Starr from The Beatles have been rumoured to have been involved in some capacity on this album. If so, it just adds to the awesomeness of an already super dope record!
a posté un commentaire sur Mr. Scruff - Giffin. 5 months ago
Fantastic tune from Manchester's best DJ. The original mix is a soulful 2-step esque Breakbeat tune and the vocal version by Speechless is simply beautiful. Nothing beats a good release from Mr. Scruff!
a posté un commentaire sur Doc Martin. 6 months ago
Legendary House DJ, NOT to be confused with the TV Character, Doc Martin (Martin Ellingham), a grumpy, but talented G.P. from Portwenn in Cornwall, who has a fear of blood portrayed by Martin Clunes.
a posté un commentaire sur Anna Calvi - Hunter. 7 months ago
Totally agree with you - Anna Calvi is a very talented lady - She has so much gravitas with just her voice and guitar. Can't wait to see her again at Deershed Festival next year - should be amazing.

Don't get me wrong - I'm a massive fan of The Goodies (for those who don't know, they were a very funny British comedy trio from the 1970's), but my giddy aunt, is the cover to this album downright scary! Beastly Record . . . well that depends on your ... Voir l'avis en entier

One of the greatest movies ever made - even if it is a little too close to home for us musicians! It's a movie that gets funnier and funnier every time you see it, and not to mention ridiculously quotable.
a posté un commentaire sur Agneta Munther & Berndt Öst - Den Stora Dagen / Hem Till Gården. 10 months ago
Side B (Hem till gården - "Home to the Farm") is actually a vocal cover version of the theme tune of the famous British Soap Opera series 'Emmerdale'!

Brilliant funky soul tune featuring the sultry vocals of the legendary Joss Stone. Definite floor filler for Funk/Soul nights.

The amount of epicness on this reinterpretation of the Crystal Waters classic 'Gypsy Woman' is unbelievable! This is so, so, so, so, so, so, so, so, so, so good!

Be careful if you come across any records by the Beatles that's supposedly autographed by the Fab Four - a lot of them are forged. It is well known that back in the day, that their roadies (Neil Aspinall and Mal Evans), the Beatles Fan Club secretaries ... Voir l'avis en entier

First heard this on a DJ Mix by famous Skint Records DJ and founder, Midfield General (Damian Harris). Absolutely incredible Jazz-Disco-Funk awesomeness. Must check out Dexter Wansel's other tunes sometime!

WOW - what an amazing record! Classic Marvin Gaye awesomeness complete with the funkiest funk imaginable - You would be such a fool not to like such an incredible tune.
a posté un avis de Unknown Artist - Hammond And The Golden Hits Featuring Hammond Organ And Percussion. about 1 year ago
Some may find this cheesy, but I just love these Hammond Organ covers of 1960's standards. It's the sort of music that Feathers McGraw (the villain from the Wallace & Gromit film, 'The Wrong Trousers') would blast out on the loudspeakers.
a posté un avis de Nas With National Symphony Orchestra - Illmatic (Live From The Kennedy Center). about 1 year ago
Having a full live orchestra just adds an extra layer of epic awesomeness to an already amazing album! If you like Pete Tong and the Heritage Orchestra or the Hacienda Classics but with Dance Music substituted for the Golden Age Hip-Hop stylings of Nas - ... Voir l'avis en entier

It's CRAZY to think that this amazing album is now 20 years old - Still one of my favourites.
a posté un avis de The Wiseguys - Start The Commotion. about 1 year ago
Really great remixes of an already stellar Big Beat track. Especially love DJ Spinna's remix, which goes for an almost Big Beat-Meets-Electro Swing approach, which is quite a departure from Spinna's usual Hip-Hop and House productions.

Can't go wrong with this amazing tune - I open 95% of my DJ sets with it!
