Q-Tip live

Gutted that Q-Tip has cancelled his European tour. Consoling myself with the recording (highlights though, not the full show) made by Gilles Peterson and BBC Radio 1 from his live show in London, 2009.


Mix #8 – The soul of MJ Cole March 14, 2011

Artwork for Mix #8 - The soul of MJ Cole
First off, apologies for the poncey title, but you know….”MJ Cole”….”soul”….you gotta at least attempt to put them together.

Anyway, there’s a few tribute mixes out there already to MJ Cole, but they seem to feature on his more dancefloor-orientated releases, whereas I wanted to focus on the more soulful stuff (of which there is a lot).

No producer can squeeze out the soul as well as the man in question, and I own four copies of his “Sincere” longplayer from 2000. I’m not entirely sure why, I bought a back-up copy in case I lost the first one, then it mushroomed from there.

Anyway, this is by no means an exhaustive mix…in fact the guy is prolific, so go and search out his albums and other releases (really, if you haven’t got at least “Sincere”, you really should find a big mirror, and take a good, long look at yourself).

Seemingly unreleased Domu mixes January 26, 2011

Dominic Stanton

Plenty written out there (in a lot more depth and in a more erudite fashion than I could muster) about the decision by Domu (Dominic Stanton from here on in) in 2009 to retire from all-things music, and by the sounds of it, he is not regretting his decision one bit.

Whilst digging out his “Return of The Rogue” CD yesterday for a quick listen, I came across a CDR emblazoned with “Domu unreleased mixes” that triggered a memory. If I remember rightly, I bought a few CD’s from Mr Stanton’s old “Here Comes Treble” label, and received this CDR along with my purchase.

On it, were indeed four unreleased DJ mixes. One of them seems to be a continuous mix of his Rebel Soul From A Deep Galaxy mix CD, and I can’t find any trace of the other three. The Rebel Soul CD seems to be deleted, so hopefully no-one has any objection to this little cheeky upload (do let me know if you do).

Although he’s retired, he’s still receiving royalties – so do show some support by buying some of that amazing back catalogue if you don’t already have it. Also, don’t forget to check out the excellent Nutriot blog for Domu’s website mixes, and some equally excellent Here Comes Treble podcasts.

The man Bukem

After the crash of 2009 (my hard-drive, not the economy), I devoted a little time here and there to try and repopulate the old mixes that have departed these fair shores.
