MD GUESTS ON PLANET X, RADIO CITY TALK (DOWNLOADABLE AUDIO)

Here’s the downloadable audio of my guest spot on Planet X a couple of weekends ago, on Liverpool’s Radio City Talk. Here we really go in on the various manipulations and mind control techniques employed by the mainstream music industry, and how the game’s noticeably been getting stepped up. 
Topics covered include the MK Ultra mind control of artists, the real reason behind the proliferation of Autotune, non-resonant recording frequencies, satanic symbolism in videos and stage shows, and the suggestion that the music industry sacrifices its own artists in covert occult rituals. 
The show, hosted by Neal Atkinson, is weekly, and is great stuff, addressing all kinds of alternative and suppressed subjects that the mainstream media rarely goes near.

OXFORDSHIRE GUARDIAN MUSIC COLUMN, 27/11/12


Like LL Cool J before him, Game is a rapper whose output has always been touch or go. When he’s bad he’s particularly lame, but when he’s on form, his tracks are on fire. Such is the case with his new offering, ‘Black Jesus’, which will may well be considered a touch controversial by Christians. To be fair, much of its appeal comes from the sublime head-nodding beat courtesy of producer Sap, which reminds me of the one used on Styles P’s ‘The Life’ a decade ago. It has ‘banger’ stamped all over it, and it’s significantly different to other hip-hop output of the moment. Game’s fifth album, entitled ‘Jesus Piece’, is due mid-December.

It’s been shown so many times that artists have to display some patience in waiting to break through to pubic acclaim, and it doesn’t happen before it’s ready. I’m really hoping that the time has now come for the vocalist Chrisette Michele to make the transition. Her latest solo offering, ‘Rich Hipster’, is wonderfully classy and soulful and instantly catchy, with lyrics all about the good life, and a guest rap cameo from Wale. It’s a taster for Chrisette’s upcoming ‘Audrey Hepburn: The Mixtape’ project. Her fourth LP, ‘Better’, is to follow.

In today’s over-crowded and fast-moving scene it’s rare for a track to maintain a shelf life of three months, let alone for three years straight. This is an accolade that looks like being set by producer DJ Fresh, however, with his evergreen dancefloor destroyer ‘Gold Dust’. First appearing in instrumental form in 2010, it benefitted from a vocal overhaul last year, launching it straight into universal banger status. Its impact is now extended further by another package of remixes. Most notable is the new working by drum & bass producer Shy FX, which starts out deceptively in reggae territory, before launching into full-blown furious D&B style. It’s the sort of track that’s likely to go down well everywhere, from the biggest superclub, right down to your local Yates’.

DEDICATED TO EVERYONE WHO’S EVER SAID ANY KIND OF DUMB SHIT TO A DJ…

STUPID SHIT PEOPLE SAY TO A DJ IN A CLUB/
THE EQUIVALENT THING TO SAY TO A CHEF IN A RESTAURANT
CAN’T YOU PLAY SOMETHING WE CAN DANCE TO?/
CAN’T YOU COOK SOMETHING WE CAN EAT?
CAN’T YOU PLAY SOMETHING WITH A BIT OF A BEAT?/
CAN’T YOU COOK SOMETHING WITH A BIT OF FLAVOUR?
IF YOU PLAY RIHANNA NEXT, EVERYONE WILL DANCE/
IF YOU COOK A SHEPHERD’S PIE, EVERYONE WILL EAT
YOU’VE GOT TO PLAY TO THE CROWD … MAKE PEOPLE DANCE/
YOU’VE GOT TO COOK FOR THE DINERS… MAKE THEM EAT
I’M AN MC, BRUV. LET ME SPIT LYRICS ON THE MIC FOR A BIT, YEAH?/
I’M A COOK, BRUV. LET ME STIR UP A QUICK STEW ON YOUR OVEN, YEAH?
I DON’T KNOW WHAT IT’S CALLED OR WHO IT’S BY, BUT IT WAS ON RADIO 1 LAST WEEK/
I DON’T KNOW WHAT THE DISH IS OR WHAT’S IN IT, BUT JAMIE OLIVER ONCE MADE IT
DO YOU HAVE THE NEW SOULJA BOY?
NO
HANG ON, I’VE GOT IT ON MY PHONE. CAN YOU PLAY IT OFF THAT?/ 
DO YOU HAVE TAGLIATELLI VERDI?
NO
HANG ON, I JUST BOUGHT SOME FROM WAITROSE. CAN YOU COOK IT UP FOR ME?
CAN YOU PLAY BRYAN ADAMS ‘SUMMER OF 69’ AND JASON DERULO ‘RIDIN’ SOLO’?
(IT’S AN UNDERGROUND HIP-HOP NIGHT/ 
CAN I HAVE SUSHI, FOLLOWED BY CHICKEN KORMA?
(IT’S A MEXICAN RESTAURANT)
HEY MR DJ! (WHILST MIMING ACTION OF SCRATCHING RECORD WITH HEADPHONE CUPPED TO EAR)
HEY MR CHEF! (WHILST MIMING ACTION OF WHISKING AN EGG WITH ONE HAND AND ROLLING SOME PASTRY WITH THE OTHER.)
*
HERE’S THE BOTTOM LINE. NO-ONE WOULD BE MORONIC ENOUGH TO SAY ANY OF THE SECOND PHRASES TO A CHEF 
IN A RESTAURANT, (OR WOULD BE MADE TO FEEL LIKE A TOTAL PLUM IF THEY DID), AND NO CHEF WOULD PUT UP WITH IT.
SO WHY DO WE DJ’S HAVE TO SUFFER THIS MONUMENTAL STUPIDITY EVERY FUCKING WEEKEND!
NOW DO YOU GET IT?!
