The Hop Episode #20

February 16, 2009

This is it! Another week, another show, with bangers!  I told you about South-Korea, Seoul is doin’ it; the guys of Inside are on the roll with gigs and (definitely) beats, check out that beat by Simo!!!  In the same vibe I put a joint by Brazilian cat Afta-1 on Mpm called “Nightlight“, make sure to go get that 7″ at your local recordstore, it’s fat.  I really like that “Watermelon Man” edit by Kenny Dope, an already classic tune by Herbie Hancock I know but the way it’s flipped is just fine for gigs; and so is Q-Tip‘s “Move” of course, very nice Jackson 5 sample chopped by master J Dilla.  Last week I saw Ugly Duckling doing a great show in Brussels so I thought it necessary to spin a joint by the guys, they are actually really good performers, interaction, fun, jokes, everything to make a perfect night with these guys.  Mulatu Astatke and The Heliocentrics, that’s the perfect combo right now, really expecting the album to drop soon and to see them perform next month. And yes, the “Wu” is back with Raekwon, a track that should see daylight on his next album, this joint features Method Man & Ghostface so you know it’s good!!!  Let’s go on with a Flying Lotus old & exclusive track called “Disco Balls #2” right into Buraka Som Sistema with Diplo, you know, it’s that “A Milli” joint called “Um Milhao“, I love it.  But what I love most right now is probably Martyn‘s “Right Star“, very nice.  When is that album coming out?  Anyway, there’s more to listen to over here, just click:
