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).
