RANDOM BIG TUNE OF THE DAY

December 10, 2008

BEATNUTS – LET’S GET DOE

Featuring the ubiquitous Fatman Scoop. Not usually the first Psycho Les & Juju track most heads would choose. Given its context (they were looking for their next big club banger after Off The Books, Watch Out Now, & No Escaping This) Don’t think it really popped off the way they wanted it to, but personally I was never mad at this song because those drums were too crisp to deny. See also: Gimme The Ass and its infectious chorus.

DON’T FORGET ABOUT MAC DRE!

November 8, 2008

Shouts to my dude Chankery Harv, who put me on to a whole bunch of Bay Area hyphy ish.

When I was in San Francisco (pause) last year, I met DJ Morse Code, a dope club DJ who’s running the strip now. Mac Dre is widely regarded for the whole hyphy and thizz face movement.In honour of his hometown hero, who met an untimely passing in 2004, Morse Code put together a “best of” mix, to give heads a crash course in what’s good with the Bay. Hyphy may not have blown up the way they wanted it to, but those who appreciate it definitely know what’s up.
