Harvest Supper with a can of Special Brew (Playlist)
*Originally from 2nd October 2020
The Day - Curren$y, Mos Def, Jay Electronica
I'm here for this absolute beaut of a hook. Jay Elec's verse kicks Curren$y's off the park. It's an amuse bouche of sorts.
Can't You See Me - Roy Ayers
Lots of love for Roy Ayers on these lists. "Can't you see me, I'm on top of the world" It's not that good in Parkstone, Poole. Doing decent nonetheless. Keep at it y'all.
All The Way Up - Fat Joe, Remy Ma, French Montana
Night Riders - Major Lazer (ft Travis Scott, Pusha T, Mad Cobra, 2 Chainz)
Off the third ML album. Mad Cobra's ragga verse so sick I suggest you wear flame retardant clothing before giving this a spin. Total fire!
L'Hotel - Yello (Carl Cox Remix)
Bit of 80s/90s phantasy licked to shit by Carl Cox on the remix. A man who could never do wrong in my eyes. Pumping techno goodness.
Lyk U Use 2 - Moodymann (ft Andres)
I suggest y'all seek out the work of Moodymann off the back of this cheery bangaaa. It's far from moody. I am investing my ears here, just house goodness.
Good Body Girl - DJ Monk ft Tico
I think this samples Andy C's - In The Valley of Shadows - absolute old skool D&B bangaaaaaaa. Good body girl, a sentiment close to my heart.
Bad - Don Diablo ft Zak Abel
Red Light, Green Light - Duke Dumont ft Shaun Ross
Duke's back. Prolly more commercial than Don Diablo. Pin back those ears and dig. He's got some major echoes of late 80s house on that backing track.
Be Real Black For Me - Roberta Flack and Donny Hathaway
Scarface sampled the intro on 'In My Block'. Beaut funk/soul track. Cheers to the algorithm that threw this my way, be good y'all.
