Grandmaster Flash - The Message (Roots Manuva Remix)

This was always a favourite of mine and this remix really does justice to the original.

I have just been reminded of this by The Hundredth Idiot (thanks Chris) and knew I had to share.

Treva Whateva - Singalong

I have no idea where all the samples for this track came from, I just like the bouncy, singalong nature of it.

Definitely a song for a Friday.

Gene Russell - Get Down

The bassline from this track was used in one of my favourite tracks of the nineties (coming soon), and I love how the whole track is really lazy and sounds as if none of the musicians can be bothered to play.

The ’80s weren’t so bad after all.

I still don’t have a lot of time for apostrophes though.

Bob James - Take Me to The Mardi Gras

Sampled to death by hip hop producers old and new, the original still takes the cake (the cheesecake, that is).
