miTunes Week 7

19th Dec – 25th Dec 2011

OK So when I was younger I tinkered with a little DJing and loved it!!

Aside from Hip Hop my second love musically is UK Garage without a doubt and this week I took a trip back to my spinning days and decided I’d take you guys with me… oh and Merry Xmas!!

Before UK Funky, Bassline & Dubstep there was… UK Garage!!


The tune that really sparked my interest in garage music.


Oh and this one obviously 🙂 this still rates today, when that bassline kicks in hairs stand up!!


Such a tune!! Always part of my set back in the day!!


Loved this track the minute I heard it, such an underated singer.


The original was amazing but so was this, bad ass bassline and the 1st track on his album – haaard.


Unlike most I much preferred this teebone mix of Fly By. Rinsed this tune LOL sick bass.


Cant sign off this week without mentioning this track – Booooo!!!

Longer than my usual weekly post this is still really just a taster of the amazing UK Garage scene that was about from the last 90’s and is still producing the odd gem even now.

miTunes Week 5 and 6

Hey peeps.

So things have been mad busy and I just didn’t have time last weekend to put together my previous weeks tunes so am doing both today in one big update aaaiiiigghhhtt!!

So its been a busy couple of weeks like I say including my wife Michelle’s 30th birthday so the tunes in this update will reflect a little of her musical stylings as well as mine.

Enjoy!

Week 5: 5th Dec – 11th Dec 2011


First and foremost: my good friend AKD taking time to think things through.


Why is no one making stuff like this anymore?? REAL hip hop from the days gone by!!


“The spider man is having me for dinner tonight” – amazing track and creepy as hell video


Oh…My…God!! no description required just sit back, shut your eyes and enjoy!!

Week 6:12th Dec – 18th Dec 2011


The first of Michelle’s tracks listened to quite a bit in the car over her birthday weekend


One for the both of us: love these guys, don’t take themselves too seriously and make good tunes!!


Definitely me this one – a great remix by Bar9 and a kick ass video in every way 🙂


Another one for the both of us, from my favourite album of 2008!!

so two weeks in one hope you liked it 🙂

miTunes Week 4

28th Nov – 4th Dec 2011

Week 4 is upon us!! A whole month of me banging on about the music I love and listen to etc.

How flippin self indulgant ha ha, well while I’m on a roll, this week is gonna be a little trip back in time to my formative years and some of the tunes that got me to where I am now.

I hope you like em, but not to the extent where it has any real bearing on how happy I am or if I sleep at night. 🙂


You know what to do…


Native Tongues were a big influence on me in my teens.. “Hold Up, Wait a Minute!!”


Proper House music from when I left school (Yeah I know I’m old)


Its quarter to eleven, it’s time to make some…


my oh my I love this track – late 80’s dance/house clasic!!


“Used to be so easy…” – pure class from Gary Moore RIP.


And when this came out – how things changed!!


Another huge influence on me in my late teens was this amazing guy who can play pretty much anything!!

Long one this week, and although these were about my past I still listened to all these this week cause for me they are timeless. So sorry to drag on etc but for me music is lifeblood.
