Barry Farrell Tonight + Brooklyn Baby!

As I continue my travels in America I have been checking out some seriously amazing stuff in New York. Bembe Bar is a sweet little spot in Brooklyn, and last night it was blasting out some amazing Cumbia and Dancehall. I went to Uproot Andy‘s night, Que Bajo? last Wednesday, but sadly he was away, Geko Jones still held it down though with Chief Boima, who is playing all over New York and producing and is definitely someone to check out.

Dave Parle is hosting True Stories for me while I am away, and this week he has got Barry Farrell joining him. It should be a real nice night. Barry is going to play some Electro Swing or Swing Electro. It sounds great. There should be some nice summer feelings in the Bernard Shaw tonight. Have Fun.

Here are three songs about Brooklyn.
Jay-Z – Brooklyn’s Finest (feat. Notorious B.I.G.)
MC Lyte – Kickin’ 4 Brooklyn
Mos Def – Brooklyn

Last Antics and Handsome Paddy

Handsome Paddy was really super last night. He has mad skills when it comes to DJing and he showed them off last night real well. Onto over news though, Antics, the first night I had a residency at in Dublin, is ended forever tonight. It is going to be a real special night, so everyone should come on down.

These two tracks are my ultimate favorite songs right now. Especially the Tina Turner one, that is my jam right now, but Holiday is a total summer groove too.
Madonna – Holiday
Tina Turner – What’s Love Got To Do With It?

This is an amazing remix. Cut up dub reggae used as a backing track for one of the best MCs around.
Mos Dub – History Town

This is a beautiful bit of instrumental Dancehall. I love the cheesy guitar solo near the end too.
Teetimus and Daseca – Beauty Riddim

The NCAD Ball

True Stories are running a stage at the NCAD end of year ball this year and we are really excited with the line up. Joining me tonight will be local champion DJ TuKi. Just watch the video below, it will explain everything.

We also have the incredibly amazing act Geppetto: CoLab, combining live visuals and music. I am pretty excited about seeing these guys and I don’t know what to expect. I will also be dropping some hip hop classics with a bit of Dancehall too.

Fruit and Nut and Cutty Ranks remix


We have Fruit and Nut taking over True Stories this week, so come down and see them. You know who they are and what they do. Three Babe-o-ramas who know their stuff. I wish I could make it but I won’t be there for the night.

That is Cutty Ranks. What a king.

This Week.


I don’t really know Haido, but I was impressed that one time he played Myd at Transmission before someone (maybe Riva Starr). He is also very polite and nice to talk to, and is a good mixer. He is likely to play Hip Hop and Tropical stuff…but who knows? I don’t.

He is one of the kind ones, so he did a mix for us. Check it out.

Haido – True Stories Mix

Here is the Tracklist…
1. Photek – Into The 90s
2. Nas – Halftime
3. Paul White – The Dragon Fly
4. Kanye West – Breathe In Breathe Out (ft. Ludacris)
5. Jay-Z – Cashmere Thoughts
6. Raekwon – Incarcerated Scarfaces
7. 9 Lazy 9 – Black Jesus/Styles P – Who Want A Problem (Acappella)
8. Michna – Italian Visitor
