Us & Us Episode 19

Us & Us: “Love And Some 45s…”
A Motion Podcast Episode for May 2012
Transmitting from Mount Vernon, New York, USA
Supplying musical therapy by way of vinyl, CD, cassette, and MP3

Inspired by Record Store Day 2012, this show is an all seven-inch vinyl set. Most of them spinning at 45 rpm, others running at 33-1/3. Some soul, some funk, some jazz, and some other stuff as well. Served up freeform style. Hope you enjoy it, snaps, crackles, pops and all. Not a safe one for work, but fun just the same.

FYI: The MCs featured on “Showtime” by Big Dada Sound are Ty, Roots Manuva, Juice Aleem, Mike Ladd, and Toastie Taylor. And the Martin Luther King PSA at the end? That’s from a 7″, too…

Sturban Clothing Regage Foundation

This Podcast came about by a conversation where a DJ said to me what happend to the dub in dubstep? The thing that drew me to dubstep was the dub/reggae influence – much of that seems to have been replaced these days as ex-Drum and Bass DJ’s swap styles (that’s just my view).

Rather belated it may be but this bittersweet Valentine’s tear-jerker rates as one of my most enjoyable shows of recent times, probably because it has 3 or 4 of my favourite ever tunes in it; Viktor Vaughn’s failed mack-daddy approach to a relationship sets the tone with ‘Let Me Watch’, there are scathing barbs from the usually serene Bill Withers and Plaid’s exceptional remix of Bjork’s ‘All Is Full Of Love’ was (until 2hrs before the show started) an undiscovered gem that’s surpassed all other versions in my opinion.

A pile of unplayed vinyl on the floor of the studio means that there’s more than enough material to come up with a sequel to this show should the fancy take me. If I don’t get it together then there’s always next year’s show…x

Roy Ayres – We Live In Brooklyn Baby
Sylvia Stryplin – You Can’t Turn Me Away

The usual blend today… Plenty rap classics, some classic, sample-heavy oldies, a nostaligic goodbye to Derek B, some funny stuff, some pure filth, and some new stuff… Including the new couple of tunes by Foreign Beggars – Noisia has added his touch to them, and “Contact” seems half rap, half DNB – possibly the tune of the year? And finally this week we brought back the wack rapper of the week. We had a lot of fun with this one.
