PAN AMSTERDAM: Know The Difference (Video premiere) + UK/US 2018 tour dates

It’s not even a new single but that hasn’t stopped Pan Amsterdam (a.k.a. the genius pairing of producer thatmanmunkz and jazz trumpeter plus emcee Leron Thomas) dropping not one but two videos for Know The Difference, one of the standouts from standout LP The Pocket Watch. Those who’ve had their ear to the ground will know that this is the track on which Thomas’

HOLLIE COOK: Stay Alive (HEMPOLICS remix) + extra tour dates

HOLLIE COOK:  Stay Alive (HEMPOLICS remix) + extra tour datesHollie Cook’s star continues to rise following the release of her rather good third album, Vessel Of Love, so much so in fact that a Hempolics remix of album track Stay Alive has been released and Cook’s world tour has been extended. Where the original LP version (produced by Youth of Killing Joke) employs dubby, electronica-tinged reggae, The Hempolics jettison the electronica and dub shit

LEE FIELDS: Time (2017) + European Tour 2017

LEE FIELDS:  Time (2017)Time Lee Fields had a new single out isn’t it – what with his touring Europe in November? Oh look, he does and it’s called Time. And it behoves us to listen to the ruminations of the man formerly known as ‘Little JB’ since, with the sad departure of both Sharon Jones and Charles Bradley, he is now the undisputed ‘Soul Survivor Number 1’. So what does Mr F have

LEE FIELDS & THE EXPRESSIONS: Never Be Another You/ Lover Man (Vinyl 7″) (2017) + UK & Ireland June ’17 tour dates

LEE FIELDS & THE EXPRESSIONS:  Never Be Another You/ Lover ManHeads up ladies, soul man Lee Fields is all set to drop another single off his latest LP, Special Night, and he loves you doesn’t he? Surely there’s no ambiguity in the opening lyrics, “…you can’t measure/ the things I wanna do for you/ Please let me do it/ ‘Cause it’s my pleasure/ I get so much joy out of serving you.” Mind you there is that slow and sexual lope of a beat beneath

LEE FIELDS & THE EXPRESSIONS: UK/ Eire Tour January (2017)

UK Eire tour 2017 Lee FieldsSoul survivor Lee Fields is playing the UK and Ireland this week! Now – since there’s not much of the week left, he’s either doing very short gigs and lots of them – or not very many gigs. Unsurprisingly, it’s the latter. Fresh from the success of latest LP Special Night the man who’s been kicking it live since 1969 is bringing his band The Expressions over to these shores and

BASEMENT FREAKS: Jumpin Around (2015) Free download

Jumpin Around Basement FreaksNot the first booty take on that 1992 House Of Pain track this week but certainly the-most in-your-face, Basement FreaksJumpin Around, doesn’t so much jump around as extreme pogo through a succession of different arena-bothering beats and bass genres. That’s because he ain’t goin out like a punk bitch – get used to one style and he might switch. Still why the freebie? Could

JOHNNYPLUSE & THE STORMTROOPERS OF LOVE: ‘Ape Panic’ promo video (2015) + Summer tour

JohnnyPluse Stormtroopers Ape Panic tour vidWhat do you know? It’s not just women who talk in the toilets: Johnnypluse & The Stormtroopers Of Love do too, for that is where they met. In two separate toilets as well, though whether that makes things better or worse is not entirely clear. Marvel at this and other behind-the-scenes-revelations on the JPSTOL promo video for their forthcoming debut LP, Ape Panic, which drops

RHYMESAYERS: London Tour Stories video (2011)

In which various artists on the 2011 Carhartt/ Rhymesayers tour relate why they love the Big Smoke. Or not. Slug found the bacon undercooked, Budo informs us that he’s half English and like everyone this side of the Atlantic he already drinks tea with pinkie raised and salutes the Queen while Evidence hates Heathrow but thinks the weed is pretty good. Thus it is Brother Ali alone, who

EPMD: UK show – February 2011 – London, HMV Forum

Is it possible to pack in some feeble EPMD-referencing wordplay whilst commenting on this rare rampage in the big smoke at London’s HMV Forum on 19 February next year? Actually, I might already have started. One suspects Errick and Parrish may not be making as many dollars as they’d currently like given that the last time they gigged in London was ten years ago. Not that I’m suggesting they’re gold diggers or anything – I would imagine things’ll be business as usual for the boys and that they’ll let the funk flow.
