Another week is here, and Friday night I’ll be kicking another 6 hours plus on the turntables over at The Ace Hotel in NYC. Here is a preview of some stuff you might here in that time. The design and mix are based on a Wolves program from the early 70’s with great Northern Ireland player Derek Dugan and contains commentary from a match between Wolves v. Everton at the Molineux in 1970, updated of course for 2011, sort of. I’m a football fan, so I love to dig on some of these old style players, haircuts, uniforms, and of course the classic matches. A great inspiration.
This week I’ve got some Left Coast Hip Hop in case you missed them in Common Market and Jake One (one of my favorite producers), a newer Jill Scott track featuring Mos Def (or Yasin at the moment), some Jay Z sampled MSFB, funky stuff with James Spencer, Classic Hip Hop in Brand Nubian and Audio Two, a great Funk band who just dropped their new record, Deep Street Soul out of Australia via the UK, a Steinski remix off of the new Dennis Coffey record, Olympic Runners, Mophono aka DJ Centipede just killing “The Shuffle”, and on again back to Jamaica with classics from Horace Andy and King Tubby, The Jamaicans, and an obscure tune from Eric Barnett (apparently one of Rodigan’s fave tracks, soon to be yours). Just a short little jaunt that will lead you to the long musical journey on Friday nights. I’m keepin’ it movin’ and keepin’ it funky as always, all night long. Enjoy.
