Seven songs

Clever. Eden tricks me into posting again by naming me in a blog meme. I haven’t quit, I just haven’t had anything to say.

From Transpontine:

‘List seven songs you are into right now. No matter what the genre, whether they have words, or even if they’re not any good, but they must be songs you’re really enjoying now, shaping your spring. Post these instructions in your blog along with your 7 songs. Then tag 7 other people to see what they’re listening to’.

1. Sun Ra ‘Voice of Space’
Bit of a toss-up here, I’ve been listening to a few records pretty incessantly. You could spend a lifetime getting to know this stuff. Cosmic Tones for Mental Therapy – that’s the basic theme.

2. Dusk & Blackdown ft. Durrty Goodz ‘Concrete Streetz’
Love this.

3. Dusk & Blackdown ‘Rolling Raj Deep’
Don’t call it deski. Seriously. But these desi-grime-dubstep tracks on Margins Music are killer.

4. MF Doom ‘One Beer’
I’ve probably listened to more MF Doom than anything else in the last year. I’d been a big fan of KMD and was just getting into the Doom material when grime abducted me. Five years later I’m picking up where I left off. This one’s from MM.. Food. ‘Beef Rapp’ probably wins the day on that one, but it’s sunburns & patios season now and ‘One Beer’ has been knocking around my head lately.

5. Parliament ‘Flashlight’
Zapp’s ‘Dance Floor’ was a contender too. Love that deep, subby, moog funk.

6. Ramadanman ‘Blimey’
Reminds me of Musik-era Plastikman. Wooden, clompy percussion and barely a hint of a bassline. Hessle Audio – Freshness Guaranteed.

7. Ghettovets ‘Lecture’
The Rammellzee in session. Go get a late pass. “If you can find this in your logic banks, then press code 2, and do what it says.” Sneeze with me.

And I’m tagging…
