Mastermind – Blacknotes

Back into jungle mode with this one. Mastermind AKA Just Jungle AKA Genotype on the melodic tip with Blacknotes, a wicked tune that came out on Renegade Recordings back in 1996.

A totally infectious little melody in this track and awesome use of the Kurtis Blow – Do The Do break, one of my favs. I love this style of jungle and could listen to mixes of mid 90s melodic tunes for hours on end. That reminds me that I need to do another mix (or three) and this one has to go on there!

ECT & Haste – Tears

My old buddy ECT sent me the link to an track we made years back in my studio (when I had one). I don’t think it’s gonna win any awards or anything and I don’t remember the intro being that dull (!) but it brings back some good memories for me and I thought I’d share.

Sadly, gone are the days of sitting in boiling hot rooms surrounded by racks of archaic outboard samplers and effects units. They were fun times and over the years I made what seemed like hundreds of tunes that never even made it close to vinyl. This is one of them…

Nas feat. Quan – Just A Moment

I’m a sucker for some hip hop with a nice beat and a bit of singing in the chorus like this. It’s hardly the best tune Nas ever did, if you’ve been living under a rock and never heard Illmatic then I strongly suggest you go check it out, but it’s a welcome addition to the soundtrack of the day.

It’s also got some great falling action at around the 1 min mark.

Black Sabbath – Solitude

A lovely haunting tune from the original metallers taken from the amazing Master Of Reality LP. Just shows that there was more to Ozzy and crew than the heavy, in your face numbers. Hardly an unknown tune but might be new to some of you…

Benny Golson – I’m Always Dancing To The Music

Massive amount of funk in this one. Been sampled several times on lots of tracks but here’s the original for you to get your groove on to. Love it…
