Darkness on the phone.

Surprise call in from non other then Fully Fitted corespondent Ronnie Darko in last week's program (playlist). He gave us the skinny on the new Spankrock isht, upcoming Fully Fitted ep, and rumors of his own solo endeavor on Ninja Tune, as well as cleared the air on previous beef I had with the Holiday Thug and what it means to be from Glen Burnie. Check the excerpt below! Includes the brand new Neon Neon (f. Spank Ro) and Fully Fitted (XXXchange) tracks!

Lord Darko on the phone lines.

I also wanted to holler out a few live (one Z related) appearance in the next few days. In addition to the usual BASS INVADERS monthly on Thursday (we got a myspace now cuz we cool like dat), Doug of Pinwheels of Your Mind and I will be hosting a very special "Z Night" at the Channel Cafe in Fort Point this Friday. If you've tuned in early before you may have heard this program as it directly precedes mine every other week. This live DJ night is a new endeavor for the Channel, a pretty chill spot in Boston's oldest artist community, so be sure to come through for an early look! Official write up below!

Z Night at the Channel Cafe

This Friday, March 28, Fort Point artist and radio DJ Doug Urbank--host of WZBC's No Commercial Potential program "The Pinwheels of Your Mind"--will play music accompanied by video projection by multi-media artist, John Gayle, from about 7 to 9 PM. From 9 to 11 PM DJ Ghostdad of WZBC's "Mofo Radio" will bring the usual mix of back alley funk and uproot dance music from vinyl's forgotten past and the digital music underground.

More on the air TONIGHT. Catch you then!

In last week's playlist, you might remember this tune as the fun freestyle ending to the hip house mix I did as part dos of the Summer Mix Series. Just scrambled across this video and it's dope. On top of the Jellybean production, you've got old school bmx bikes (ahem), slick poplock moves, keytars, what more could you want!

Bassline heat from DJ C and the Mashit blog in last week's show as well. I've been purposefully slow on checking out this whole UK bassline sensation, but the added R. Kelly vocal in C's blend brings that much more accesability to the whole thang. The Donna Summer track on that page is also worth a look. Gotta throw credit to Rupture's blog as well for some of the Cumbia mpfrees sprinkled in recent programs as well.

Busy times finishing college for me but the radio program plugs onward. Watch this space, and this space for upcoming exclusive mixes from yours truly, other then that see you on the air!

Spring Break Disco

I'm on spring break seeing my peoples in NY/NJ this week. Meant to get a post in earlier in the week so apologies if you tuned in to nothing Wed night (not sure if there was a sub in there). In the meantime, here's an update on some disco we heard in the last program.

This Hi Tension track in the playlist comes from this killer compilation of UK disco. Kind of a random release (could only find an import copy online) it's got some rare and funky stuff on it.

Hi Tension - Hi Tension

Kind of in the same vein, I ran into these Loft Classics compilations while shopping at the lab in New York. Featuring tracks made famous by David Mancuso's earlier Loft Parties, they present another opportunity to pick up some rare disco/funk/fusion digs in digital format. I'd be lying if I said we won't be hearing a lot of these tracks on the air in coming weeks. For now, check this extended tribute to NYC spring break (woo)!

Miroslauv Nitaus - New York City

I might bust these out in the club this coming weekend. I'll be playing the afterparty for a big bike get down this Saturday at the Wreck Room in Brooklyn, then it's a Chinatown bus ride back up to Boston in time for Zuzu Sunday night (flyer below) with late add to the bill, special guest Ryan Durkin! See me then, and on the air on Wednesday!
