Space Warrior (DJ Apt One Edit)

The original has like 4 minutes of shreddin ass guitar solos... not to mention that it adheres the classic italo formula in which a random number generator determines how many bars of each segment are played.

Go forth to space and make war.

"Hot To Trot" To Delaware

Part 3 of my trip to Delaware! "Hot To Trot" is murder I saw this go for $70 or more on Discogs which is always nice especially when you get a record for free lol. It starts out with a sick drum break that any B-boy/B-girl would hit the floor to but grooves enough to slay any hip dance floor. Here is a 320 rip for ya - Enjoy! Oh yea, I still have more to come from the trip so stay tuned!

Scarecrow and Criminal

Just make sure you tell 'em Steele put you on...

"...melt slowly like tapes left in hot cars."

A beautiful, dreamy mix well-suited for mellowing out on a Sunday afternoon/evening. Touches of psychedelia interspersed with sensible euro-rhythms and alluring voices calling in foreign tongues. And...go figure, I can't ID a single track...

Haircut One Hundred

A while ago I rescued a shitty punk funk track from itself and let it collect dust on my hard drive. It's the perfect secret weapon for your next peak hour post-punk set! Do any of our readers ever get to do those? Maybe my man Tristes Tropiques?

Street Corner Symphony

The dudes over at DJ History blessed the world with another stellar reissue. This time they dug up London's Street Corner Symphony, a mid 90's deep house supergroup. Here's a little info from the label... has just released an ace compilation of early 90's London deep house by Street Corner Symphony. For those of who aren't familiar with them it was a project helmed by Glen Gunner, a face on the early suburban house scene, with keyboards by Pete Z (Idjut Boys, Ray Mang etc). Harvey also contributed percussion and mixes to a number of the songs.

They were kind enough to bless us with this deeeeeep 14 minute percussion excursion. It's all about the disco swells around the 11 minute mark! If you like what you hear, pick up the full album here and a supersized version here.

Kid Gusto - SHH Remixes

My man Kid Gusto (LA/Miami/DC) has been steadily killing it with a string of releases on True Grooves including his first full length album this past year. He was listed on URB's Next 100 a year or two ago and that accolade is well deserved- his production is top notch and he always throws down a great set. His style is in the latin/funk/breakbeat vein, real DC kinda sound, similar to Nickodemus or Quantic. If you've ever been to Eighteenth Street Lounge you know what I mean.

Anyhow, recently I got my hands on a few new latin reworks of his that I've been feeling big time, called the SHH remixes. I've been getting a great response from these lately. Check it...

Funky Constellation

Great old school Hip-hop record! This is a rip from the og pressing i found on one of my early morning digging adventures. "Street Talk" has that "Enjoy label" feel, a little bit funky and a little bit disco. Peep it!
