Bit of a post for the sake of posting here.. Need to try and get the post rate up, but don't want to compromise by sharing stuff that isn't A-grade. Anyway, this remix of Crazy P's latest single (is that correct?) by band member Hot Toddy would be A-grade if I could ignore the vocals. I guess they don't bother me that much but pop just generally irritates me. Aside from that, it's the usual funky summer sound you'd expect from both Crazy P. Perhaps this will be refreshing for you, perhaps it will be too stock standard. I reckon it's solid though.
Crazy P - Stop Space Return (Hot Toddy Mix)
12-odd minute disco epic here from Rahaan. No idea when this track was actually made but it came out on a white label some time recently. Big retro disco sound which always works wonders! That's it really... Just a quality tune. This version seems to end a tiny bit early - my apologies - but you get the gist.
Rahaan - Hit & Run
Here's where we get down to business. Recently picked up this obscenely good promo mix done by In Flagranti in 2004. It's hovering around my top 3 mixes of all time, I can't be any more precise than that. Packed with the usual overwhelming array of ill-defined and unlikely genres, their patented razor edge slap-in-the-face mixing, and the overall twisted humour you'd expect from Alex & Sasha. There are a few edits I'd violently shake a baby for, and some which have since been released on their '09 Sounds Superb edits album and RVNG 12". It's only in 128, but I don't think I'd be able to find a better copy no matter how hard I looked. Prepare yourself!
