Santastic 9 & Bomarr Go Crackers

Finally got around to some Xmess music, doesn’t feel Xmassy til December (why I tend to never get around to doing mashups til late, I don’t get in the mood – if ever – until a week or two before. Although recently I’ve been a bit Grinch about the whole deal) and listening to another good Santastic compilation from djBC, a rather germanic selection featuring mashups and remix crizzle shizzle from DJ Morgoth, DJ Schmolli, Voicedude, DJ M.i.F., ATOM, mojochronic, Divide and Kreate and G3RSt.

My faves are this Flula sampling track from ATOM describing why Santa Claus is a stalker:

And djBC’s Forgot About Merry (Staple Singers vs The Christmas Villains) is very good also:

Also the G3RSt one aint too shabby either…Shawn Lee and Metallica FTW! You can download it all with artwork here.

And Bomarr has another Wild Xmas mix out, it’s great if extremely strange, the more experimental and outsider part of Chrisslemas. Watch this space, this and other Xmas strangeness might have inspired a new Bah Humbug mix…Watch this space.

RC 252: A Crumplebang Christmas

Crumplebang! A very silly Facebook conversation invented the term ‘Crumplebanger’ for some even sillier sort of mashups, and scarily it seems to now be a Real Thing so here’s some Christmas and non-festive Crumplebangers ahoy! As well as some of my faves looking back on 2013 and beyond.

Christmas crackers go out to Joel Crookes, Ian Fondue, Mr Fab of Music for Maniacs for A Merry Chrismash, Santastic 8, Jim Pilchard, Worst Records In The World, Junk Shop Juke Box and the Crumplebang crowd for suggesting or posting some of the tracks in this show.

Also this must be the first Xmas show in many years to NOT feature my sleigh bells…well I had to get my money’s worth *ahem*

RC 225: Babylondon 2012

Welcome to Gridlock! They call it murder…

A state of the capital address about London, 2012, Babylon and ting. Righteous music from roots reggae to dubstep, soul, rock and gothabilly & psychobilly (and two Orchestras  and  some funky dubby jaxz from Miles Davis!) celebrating Jamaica’s 50th birthday and Red, Gold and Green rather than Bronze, Gold and Silver.

“The man who worships silver and gold, shall surely, surely, surely lose his own soul, Then fade away”. (and a track I forgot to play on this podcast! Bless you Junior Byles).

I don’t play enough Jamaican music so inspired by David Rodigan here is a dubtastic podcast.
