Badly thought out way to get the bad thoughts out.

Lissen Again Again

This is Marcus Nasty, who used to run up on stage with two shanks and stuff like that, but now DJs Funky House and so probably now uses shanks mainly to skewer open the corks of wine bottles and to surreptitiously lift the skirts of the sexy ladies that he finds himself surrounded by in a dance.

Funky is the latest thing that I like because Kode 9 likes it. You might remember my post about Rustie and Hud Mo. Know why I suddenly decided to like them? You guessed it. Basically, the way that taste forms in my head is as follows: Kode 9 walks into a record shop in East Timor, Kode 9 picks up obscure 7" by psychedelic gambian jazz outfit Q"1+<<, Kode 9 plays Q"1+<< on Rinse FM, Corpsey buys Q"1+<< t-shirt and back catalogue, blogs about them as if he's breaking the news to the world and gets Q"1+<< tattooed above his arse crack in order to attract discerning birdles.

Kode recently appeared on DJ Rupture's WMFU Mudd Up show, and played a set of funky. It's worth listening to the interview afterwards as well, in which he reveals that Burial is Marcus Nasty and talks about the Ballardian tropes operating in a typical Hed Kandi night. On a serious note, he speaks the truth about everything as per bloody usual.

T/L is as follows

1.Rhythm & Sound ft. Jennifer Lara - Queen in my Empire
2.Kudu - Space
3.Geeneus - Yellowtail
4.Apple - Segalizer
5.Mentor Roska - Feeline VIP
6.Frankee Solar - Unknown
7.Mentor Roska - Pyramids
8.Fuzzy Logic - Twiss

Heavy stuff, but this Marcus Nasty set off 1xtra is even better. Grab it quickly before the sun disappears and we're all compelled by Seasonal Affective Disorder to listen to miserable half-step again (not to knock miserable half-step, some of which is still disgustipating).

On the slightly less exciting but much better produced side of things, I've been listening to some deep house too. If you go to this thread on DSF you can leave feedback about this deep house mix by Seattle based Struggle. It's definitely better than a kick in the anus, though not quite as good as something else, such as a mayonnaise slathered index finger, in the anus.

Finally, I've been listening to some of Benjie B's 1xtra shows in the last week. His latest show has a dubstep 2562y sort of tune on it by Marcus Intalex which is one of the best things a DNB producer has done in the style that I've heard. It's probably something to do with the fact that he hasn't just fed the sound of a baby screaming for its mother's tit through an LFO and added a snare underneath it. Well done, that man.

Records I should have bought this week but for being completely skint include: Rude Kid's EP, the Kode 9 RMX of Reminscin' with the original on the flip, and Joker's Hollybrook Park, which I see is now sold out. Oh well, that Dizzee and Calvin Harris tune is still available.

Happy days.
