THE SOUND OF NOW … COMING SOON

I’m very happy to confirm that I’ll be back on the radio from early March, starting a new show on a brand new station, OX4 FM. I’ll be on Saturdays 6-8pm, with a show called The Sound Of Now – adventurous new music from across the genres, (NO garbage electro-pop!) with a few revivals thrown in. Right where I want to be! The station goes live on 27th February on 105.1 in Oxford, and everywhere else here.

A.L VS J. DILLA: THE LAID BACK E.P – STUNNINGLY GOOD MUSIC!

This is honestly the best music I’ve heard in months, if not years. So, so good. This 16-track E.P (so actually more of an album,) from 23-year-old East London newcomer AL has her singing classily over a sublime selection of archive beats from the legendary J Dilla, and with strong rap cameos from Stutta, Mercston and Bruts . As its ‘laid back’ title suggests, it’s organic, neo-soul style the whole way. Absolutely cracking, and very highly recommended. You can get the official Bandcamp download here.

GOOD VIBRATIONS PODCAST VOL. 1: DAVID ICKE

Why do only an increasingly small handful of artists ever seem to really ‘make it’ in the music game? What’s with all the never-ending covering of one eye in all the videos? Why the insistence on rappers having so many pseudonyms? And why is the robotic vocal programme Autotune still being mercilessly rolled out despite everyone you speak to saying they hate it?

In the first of a new series of podcasts for 2012, Mark Devlin talks to world famous author and public speaker David Icke about the agenda being employed in the music industry as one of many, many facets of the global control system. As more and more people awaken to new levels of human consciousness, the controllers are getting ever more desperate to suppress the movement. The music game – and particularly what passes for ‘hip hop’ and ‘R&B’ – is now a much-favoured method of subliminal manipulation.

With names such as Jay-Z, Lady Gaga and Britney Spears being specifically addressed, this will be controversial, and will doubtless upset a few. But the truth will always be the truth, and it’s time certain things were said.

Enjoy the ride.

MARK CURRY: DANCING WITH THE DEVIL (BOOK)

I know I’m late on this, but just got my copy of former Bad Boy Records recording artist Mark Curry’s book ‘Dancing With The Devil: How Puff Burned The Bad Boys of Hip Hop’. It exposes the various fuckeries of Sean ‘P Diddy’ Combs, and looks at the ultimate fate of the various artists that have worked for him, from Craig Mack, (broke, drugs, obscurity), to Shyne (8 years in jail) to Biggie (dead.) Puffy is DARK! But cause and effect/ Karma is a bitch.

So now it’s a big happy birthday to Akilah – one year old today! Zaina got Stevie Wonder the other week, so this one’s dedicated to Akilah. (Altered Images were one of the great pop bands of the early 80s, and singer Clare Grogan was a real cutie!)
