I stumbled upon this one last week. Quite a different sound for me, I like it. I was shocked to hear anything like it on the radio. You may like it, it’s not the normal sound. I’m not familiar with the turntablism scene so forgive me. Take it or leave it. Here’s an excerpt from the CKLN.fm site:

Nuff Blending Showcase: “A weekly open concept drum’n’bass & hip-hop radio show, often using up to 4 turntables and 2 mixers to blend totally different styles of music together and create something new. Hosts Galaxy & Jayzer take you on a musical adventure each and every week, bringing you the sounds of Toronto’s underground occasionally laced with the very best of reggae/retro/electro/techno/downtempo & funk.”.

At first I thought it was unplaylistable. I assumed they were doing the mixing live at the station but seeing the playlist I think they were playing prerecorded mixes, or maybe a little of both. No worries, it’s still one of the biggest pleasures I’ve ever had from the radio.

The cuts are arbitrary (I have to cut it to be able to digest it on my crappy iPod Shuffle easier, there’s no seeking) so I’m not sure I broke some of the sets in half. So this will be different than usual – first the four links then the playlist. Playlist courtesy CKLN.

Bitch, it's curtains

No excuse for no updates, but here’s an excuse to update:

Big respect to Alan who has donated space and bandwidth for my recordings on his web space. No more rapidshare for the time being! I won’t update the old links but everything for the forseeable future will be on HTTP.

I couldn’t bear the old theme, this one is easier on the eyes if not very hip-hop-ish. What do you expect from wordpress for free. I might play around with the look and feel for the next few days. Bear with me.

Posts coming soon!
