REKKITS REKKITS

successful record shopping might be one of the best
excitements life has to offer.
today was definitely a good day for vinyl and this is
what i brought home:

- MCD / OKAY
a great ep by MCD who is already releasing since 1995.
being the host of the infamous kitchen in brixton, london
he knows exactly how to push a track forward by his
spitting. the OKAY ep carries a heavy grimey original, a
cheesy-esque but still grooving 4/4 remix and two slower
tracks on the flip side with guests like roots manuva.
MCD's going to be on tour with the dead prez in the uk,
more info HERE

- ROGUESTATE / SOUND LIKE (benny page rmx)feat. BONGO CHILLI
a drum&bass track with a jungly summer feeling to it. we'll see
how you gonna react to this, might become one of my next hit tunes...
ROGUE STATE seems to be a producer from sheffield working with
an mc called BONGO CHILLI. more info at our most used platform
of today, myspace of course.

- BABY G REMIXES feat.WARD 21 + RASTA YOUTH / THIS IS HOW WE ROLL
i like honest jons records already for their carefully designed sleeves.
this one is especially eye-catching and colorful, real love.
i don't know the original song by terry hall & mushtaq
that is being remixed here but it must be a good one according
to the intense ragga versions on the 12". honest jons records is
here for a long time now their website has still to come...

- PLASTIC LITTLE / NOW I HOLLER, THE JUMP UP
plastic little are from philly. they work on labels like sound ink.,
maybe broklyn beats and in this case something called tonearm.
the 12" features two tracks, one of them being produced
by buddy diplo sporting a guest appearance by spankrock.
cool track with a beautiful female voice indie hook line,
don't really know if it's playable in a club but at least great to singalong to at home.

more soon, it's not over...

GHANA!!

yes! yes yes ya!!
okay, let's put that straight:
one half of your girls does play football herself from time to time
but is nevertheless not interested in fifa moneysucking world cup craze.
the other half is watching as many games as possible while
clapping her hands, yelling and pretending to be the better referee.

so, hands in the air for GHANA then!
sure i like deutschland, too. but still, wouldn't it be
absolutely wunderful if an african country would win the world cup?
so let's all hope for the best.
GHANA vor - noch ein tor!

Sonar 06

yours trustworthy half sickgirl was sent to barcelona to check out this years edition of sonar, whilst the other half was collecting some real dizzee sweat. YEAH ! BIG UP BIG D AND MY BELOVED SECOND HALF YOU RULE!

here´s a quick sum up of what i noticed :

minimal
: all the clubs booking minimal pretend they don´t do it because they like it , but because they have to. they most certainly believe its dead - haha
well - if i remember correctly there where about ten parties each night featuring some more or less minimal tech house.

uffie + feadz
: since we were not able to see them perform at the last revolution cause we had to spin ourselves - i had to check them out again : coming to the conclusion : uffie is really 18. and a great mc.
and feadz beats are just unbeatable. so fabien : what do you think about a collabo ?
but : VICE PARTIES SUCK!

dj rupture
: was the only one in the whole barcelona circus throwing a minimal alternative . for as less as 1 euro entrance this was a damn blast of better beats then the whole rest of them parties.

diplo vs a trak : handling turntables as if they were machinedrums. beastie boys mashing up juelz santana , carioca videos providing beats for vybz cartel. 3000 people watching. nice one !

sonar : one thing that really really is not understandable for me : why did you invite ugly duckling and digable planets? i mean big up to those guys no doubt - damn great classical hiphop. but they´re dinosaurs man - and hello ? what is sonar about - did i hear somebody say : new music? so if there´s somebody in charge - here´s someone to provide you with some nice lil recommendations
