Week #1 of our ‘One for the Money’ Twitter Track of the Day recap…
Monday 14th November 2011 – Carl Craig / Innerzone Orchestra ‘Bug In The Bassbin’
Total game changer when this came out, first heard it being played at 45rpm by Fabio at Speed and later on discovered that it was a 33 record. It must a be a testament to the quality of the track that it worked at both tempos.
Tuesday 15th November 2011 – Meli’sa Morgan ‘Fools Paradise’Big fans of 80s boogie, productions levels, musicianship and songs are often so high and you can put this on at pretty much any party and know it will bring the ladies to the floor..
Wednesday 16th November 2011 – Aswad ‘Roots Rocking’We had the pleasure of remixing Aswad a couple of years back and were reminded of what an important band they were in terms of UK music. Most people seem to know them for their more commercial stuff which came later on. It’s well worth checking out some of their earlier material. This is taken from their 1983 album, ‘Live & Direct’. If you want to check how influential they have been we suggest you listen to their ‘New Chapter of Dub’ album
Thursday 17th November 2011 – Kenlou ‘The Bounce’One of Kenny Dope and Louie Vega’s finest moments also has them at their rawest. Released on their MAW label in the mid 90s this is like a lesson in how to make dope house beats. That it sounds as fresh today as it did back then tells you how good it is. Friday 18th November 2011 – Daz-I-Kue ‘Rokstone (Soon Come)’ Bugz In The Attic lynchpin, Daz-I-Kue dropped this back in 2005. Beats and bass with soul, nuff said!¬† Saturday 19th November 2011 – Method Man & Redman ‘Da Rockwilder’ Taken from their classic Blackout! album from 1999. Both artists were at the peak of their powers and this was one of the choice cuts from the album. Watch out for the bass‚
Sunday 20th November 2o11 – Major Notes ‘Blow Your Load’We’ve been big fans of Major Notes for minute now so it’s been a real pleasure to release his ‘Jungle Book EP’on our label. Originally coming from a hip hop background he turned his attention to house music a couple of years back and has been smashing it with his unique sound ever since.
