Tracklisting

1) Fun Boy Three – Faith, Hope & Charity (Nappa Edit)­

The first 45 I bought because of The Lunantics... on the flip, this version is a little Nappa edit for Muj.

2) Kraftwerk – It’s More Fun To Compute 

Kraftwerk what's more to say?

3) Cybotron – Clear 

Fantastic early electro from the pioneering Cybotron still sounds fresh today 35 years on!!

4) G.L.O.B.E. & Whiz Kid – Play That Beat Mr. DJ. 

Taken from one of my favourite LPs "Tommy Boy's Greatest Beats" the whole LP brings back great memories of trying to break dance on a bit of card board in a mates front room.

5) Tuff Lille Unit – Join The Future

From the best bleep label ever... many favourites... this is one of them. I loved mixing for hours in my parents loft back when I had no mortgage.

6) Forgemasters – Track With No Name

More Warp... classic from 89 related to above!

7) Ability II – Pressure Dub

Deep, Epic, Bassy Black Beauty

8) The Wizard And The Prince – The Wizard Is A Genius

Quirky, raw, triply bleeps reminds me of the Dungeons. Mixes well with 07

 

9) Justice – Aquisse

Long time friend, mentor and collaborator Justice's finest.

10) A Tribe Called Quest – If The Papes Come

Hip hop like electro played/plays a big part none more so than ATCQ especially for the love of Jazz sampling.

11) Soho – Hot Music

This is a kind of cross over tune for me I had forgotten about until recently when out in London with Justice. Again bought back memories of Jazz dancing with him and DJ Windmill in Luton in the early 90's. Mixture of house, hip hop, jazz funk with a great 3 second jazz piano sample from Wynton Marsalis.

12) Marvin Gaye – T Plays It Cool

Just a great funky loop from Marvin Gaye's "Trouble Man" this is a bootleg 12" version.

13) Booker T And The MG’s - Melting Pot

I think i probably first heard this whilst collecting glasses maybe the late 80's reissue but what a tune and lp from the same name.

14) Herbie Hancock – Fat Mama

Had to get a bit of Herbie in... so many...

15) Blue Mitchell – The Message

Picked this up last year in Oxfam which was a bit of a surprise. No sleeve but its all about the music. This version of Cymandes "The Message" is the one!!!

16) Johnny Hammond – Star Bone

Could pick any tune from this lp (Gambler's Life) and Justice beat me to back to the projects. Love Johnny Hammond and Mizells with the longest fade in history i think.

17) Esther Philips – Home Is Where The Hatred Is

Esther Philips From A Whisper To A Scream LP bought to my attention many moons ago by an old friend... top track from it.

18) Dorothy Ashby – Soul Vibrations

Would love to own more Dorothy Ashby.

19) The Crusaders – A Ballad for Joe (Louis)

All time favourite go to jazz album The Crusaders "Southern Comfort". Perfect on a sunny Sunday!!

20) Dave Brubeck – Calcutta Blues

Who doesn't like a bit of Brubeck? Perfect ending.

Big Love

Metro
