Big outing this time round, nearly all new stuff and nearly all MP3 on account of all my new vinyl purchases being in boxes following a house move (moving vinyl: rubbish). But what a show! Kicking things off with a sample link (almost) – Chaka Khan covering Love Has Fallen on Me by Rotary Conenction, and then Common taking the original’s sample, bringing in, er, Lily Allen, and then driving himself wild. A good one.
Also good is the evergreen Masta Ace, I still remember buying his first LP God knows how many years ago (he was Master Ace then), always been one of my favourites. For his new record he’s taken the samples from MF Doom’s Special Herbs and then wrote a ton of songs growing up in Brooklyn, all in tribute to his recently departed mum. Love Hiphop! Son of Yvonne is the tune I put up for you lot.
Then we have more hiphop from last last year, the Girl-Talk produced Believe in magic by Jim Jones, then some GoGo (but not of the ten minute kind, that will follow in a later show) from the excellent GoGo Get Down compilation on BBE compiled by Joey Negro. Following that is a rare demo from the obscure Disco-ists Evans Pyramid (the reissue on Cultures of Soul is great) and then a three in a row from some weirder folk: Ariel Pink, Sandro Perri, and then Andrew Ashong, new on Theo Parrish’s Sound Signature records. Mmmm.
This week’s quiet bit features Jóhann Jóhannsson, something of the new CFCF EP and Joel Ford (bring back Tigercity!) and his new Airbird side project. All well worth getting in the opinion of WYWR.
After that, an hour or so of power, house bits and bobs from Trujillo, the slow disco king LTJ, new tracks on Young Adults from Suzanne Kraft and The Dead Rose Music Company, something off of the new Woolfy vs Projections album and then a piano driver from Marvin Guy. All good in there.
And finally, to finish, one of the tracks of the summer from Matthew Dear and the recent 11 minute monster from Roisin Murphy – new album soon come in the autumn apparently and I’m hoping it’s a winner in the style of Ruby Blue. Just let ‘Simulation’ run and run, it’ll get right in your head…
