Brass attacks #1

This weeks show starts with some of my favourite brass band tunes. Had the best dance I’ve had in years when I saw the Rebirth brass band in Tipitina’s in New Orleans, a couple of months before the planned forced relocation of the population- when I was there people were telling me it was coming anytime now and their requests for water proofing would never be answered.

Got turned on to the brilliance of post-Quincy Jones, post hip-hop brass there, perfectly exemplified by ‘Casanova’ from the Rebirths below. Could feel my hair blowing back in the wind of brass. Dj Halfdutch chose the Hot 8’s version of sexual healing in my end of 07 show(check it – at the start of one the of the January shows). Brass’s rise in people’s minds and use in music from Winehouse to punk to indie is very noticeable these days. The Tuba bass sound has a lot of colour and power and a tuba powered top class brass band have to be heard to be believed.

Later in the show a couple of tunes from Mc Beezy’s new mixtape, who along with Durty Goodz just keeps bringing it. The rest features class irish dubstep taken from the new !Kaboogie cd and the new Twoc Vinyl (see side bar). Other highlights for me are the mix out of Bombaman’s remix in to some old hardcore from 4 Hero( the mutability of dubstep fascinates me at least as much as the music itself) and then back into some crisp work from Bassclef. Also pneumonia from Fog has to be heared.Posted this show late as homoludo and homofaber were having a bit of tussle, which wasn’t resolved till late in the week.
