Lone Ranger

My homie in Philadelphia Yung Harrison is a hard core reggae head and is always putting me on to great records including these two. I was digging in Maryland about a year ago and came across Lone Ranger's 12' "Donst Falla Romour" I quickly snatched it up when i realized it was sitting in a dollar bin and called my boy Harrison. I knew as soon as I listen to it on my portable turntable that it was fire, but i wanted to know more about the Lone Ranger. Yung Harrison was hype to know I found a copy and told me to download "M-16" as soon as i get home. Last week he emailed me asking for a rip of "Donst Falla Romour" so I gladly obliged! Here are two banging tracks from the homie Lone Ranger. Puff that good good then Enjoy!

I first heard this tune in a club scene in Roman Polanski's "Frantic," which I included below. It in the context of the film it's a powerful scene; Harrison Ford & his sexy young partner awkwardly moving on a surreal dance floor with this track booming.

I actually squeezed this between a DJ Sneak track and big room track on the Swag Rave mix last summer. Tango break!

On The Road With The Ruler

Since my last post I have visited Chicago and Salt Lake City on The 3rd Rail Jam Tour. The pics above are of (in order) New Jersey, Chicago and North Carolina - I crowd surfed in NC. During my trip I have mostly been kicking it with Slicks Rick's DJ, DJ Kaos - the dood is mad cool and we even went record shopping in Salt Lake! To bad we both have 10,000 records and we did not find anything yet :( lol

I had a chance in between Chicago and Salt Lake to return home and during that time i tried to think of a Slick Rick record that I could impress him with. I came up with the 1988 Al B Sure record "If I'm Not Your Lover" that featured Slick for a few verses. Just a side note, I bought the record when I was 12 years old. When we arrived at the Hotel in Chicago I pulled it out, but at first I was not going to say anything considering he is constantly being bothered by his fans to sign something or take a picture. Then his wife spotted it in my hand and said RICK! Slick looked at it and said WOW, he kind of took a step back as if he had forgotten about it. To say the least he was impressed. DJ Kaos then told me he had been looking for it for a while and asked me to rip it for him. So here it is, hope you enjoy. Next stop is in Los Angeles California!

PS: Remember to download the Slacker Radio app to your smart phone to support! It's free and if you like Pandora this blows it out the water.

Robotique Mixtape 4.0 - Space Age Psychedelia

The new Robotique Mixtape, 'Space Age Psychedelia' is now ready for your consumption.

11 tracks in 59;30, with BPM ranging from 98-106. This is more of a listening mix than a dancefloor destroyer. From the rarest Italo and afrodisco to recent favorites, the intention was to invoke the influence of Baldelli, Marzio, Bepe Lodda and other proponents of the 'cosmic' sound or 'psychedelic disco' of early 80's Italy.

Hope y'all like. It is available exclusively through DJ Dirty's podcast:

Thee Headcoats

Siiiiiiiick mid-90s garage rock covers of two of my favorite punk tunes - The Lurkers' "Shadow" & Chelsea's "No Escape." Sadly, I couldn't find any photos of the 45's label and hand stamped sleeve.

Hot & Use First

I picked both of these up in Dublin in 2005. The shop might have been called Bassbin? Not sure, but Simon Conway put me on to these. Anyway, I'd like to post a couple of the tracks, but first I want to determine if these are edits. I'm suspicious of the Section 25 & Chris and Cosey cuts because they are a different length than the other versions on Discogs. This verion of "Looking From a Hilltop" sounds like a re-edit of the megamix. Does anyone out there have any info on these?

Here are the Discogs entries...

Frankie Beverly & Maze - Before I Let Go (DJ Apt One Intro)

One of THE greatest songs of all time. My buddy Brendan Bring'em dropped his own intro edit of this track a few weeks back while we were chillaxin on some beers, but it was a tape edit type thing he'd done a long time ago - I figured I'd go the quantized route and I cut it up myself, but hat tip to Bren for the inspiration. All about the proper drop to this song. For the record, I didn't touch anything else about the song, because the thing is just too good for words and some things shouldn't be fucked with.

Sex Mix

Last year I was looking for a Frankie Goes To Hollywood cut that Ron Hardy used to open his sets when I am across this strange gem. Don't associate the stigma of the cheesy radio version with this 16 minute epic. This version is a whole different animal - a dark, droning but funky electronic journey through heavy fog.

There are over 70 different versions of the Relax single with numerous mixes, including shorter versions of the Sex Mix. I don't care to sort it out, but I thought some of you might like a heads up.
