A few tunes for this cold, dark night. The first was heard on Monday morning at 7.15 while on the way to work feeling very cold and miserable. Out of the blue comes the familiar bassline of Coco Tea’s Lonesome Side blasting out of the pushbike soundsytem of the guy who rides on the pavement on his way to and from work in Brockley who pumps out a varied selection of tunes (Disco, Funk and Reggae). Big up the Brockley pavement-riding pushbike soundsystem bloke!
The second, Ranking Joe‘s Natty General as heard on last week’s David Rodigan show when he did a history of the “General” Rhythm. There’s a lovely dub on this cut with some serious filtering/knob twiddling around the 4.20 mark and some heavy baseline business. Tune!
The last and no means least is from The Heptones – You Can’t Hide from Jah featuring a nice keyboard hook as heard earlier today on the sound tape Soul to Soul, Lovebird club, Jamaica 1979 on the excellent Who Cork The Dance website.
Keep warm and as Terry C. on the Echo Beach radio show says “Stay Irie my friends.”
