A new trend in music today is the constant ability of legendary selectors like Hunee, Mr Scruff and Antal to dig up incredible and unknown old school tracks that turn the dancefloor mental. In honor of that trend I’ll be posting “Crate Digger” tracks starting with this groovy cut circa 1974, from Trinidadians Embyro.
Nice trip down memory lane: 2 years ago Mura Masa was still on the cusps of making his first big break. This little 2 minute jaunt is worth revisiting as the transition from oldies sample to bombastic hip hop is just too beautiful to forget.
At my office, it’s a bit of a Friday tradition to break out this mix to signal its time to start drinking for the weekend. Hard to believe GTA Vice City is 15 years old (the video game was release in 2002) and this mix is not only hilarious but filled with quality grooves. Happy Friday peeps! Shootout to the TicketSwap office crew for keeping me sane
The saxophone cures all midweek woes.
If you’ve watched Portlandia or listened to Washed Out you might just find this edit a wee bit familiar. Piano groovy.
I’m reaching back 4 years to showcase this awesome track from Estonian producer Ajukaja. It combines House vibes with an awesome Afrobeat rhythm and vocal samples. Perfect sunny music for kicking off my week in grey London
Now this is a throwback that dates back to 1983. I discovered the track after re-listening to one of Jamie XX’s Essential Mixes from 2011 for the umpteenth time. SanFranDisko’s groovin edit from the Golden Gate city re-ignited the fire of this tracks and makes it an addictive listen (I’ve been listening to it on repeat all week). Enjoy!
