Belt Driven Radio Show Podcast

This lovely find on my drum and bass podcast website is a nice blend of hip hop, soul, funk and reggae — and a must listen.  Artists in this month’s episode include: MF Doom, Pharoah Monch, Rufus Thomas and N.W.A., among others.

(note: there is already an August 2010 episode uploaded)

Belt Driven July 2010 Podcast hosts the podcast episodes, but here is the radio show’s website, for more info on when and where the show airs and other tidbits: BeltDriven

Rockwell – Underpass

What to call this type of music…. Ambient? Minimal? Dub? Drum & Bass?

Whichever one of many genres this track might fall into, it is one thing. Very good. Well produced piece using techy blips and grinds with a very mellow rolling bassline. Filters and pans layer out this track nicely. See if you can catch the reverse snare sprinkled in there. Enjoy!

Hey DJs, don’t forget to practice

As experienced last night at Bar Dot here in Hollywood, there’s nothing worse than a horrible DJ providing your evening’s entertainment. So practice practice practice! Don’t be a bad DJ please. (and how the hell do some of these guys get gigs anyway?)
Here is what a really good DJ sounds like. (the end of the set gives me chills!)

Junior Boys – Like a Child (Carl Craig remix)

Carl Craig can be regarded as one of the forefathers of the Detroit techno music scene. Here is a track that became the icing on the cake of his long career when it was nominated for a Grammy in 2007. Please enjoy!
