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

3Marias is Leaving.

This is the end. Andrea is playing her last show before she moves back to Guatemala. She played True Stories before, and was totally great. This time she says she is going to play Cumbia, Dancehall and few 90s MTV Classics. No doubt she is going to rock it. So come say goodbye, and have another great time.

I have noticed that I have been a bit lazy about posting songs. I am making it up to you right here with a few┬áriddims. I tried giving a bit of a synopsis of each track, so you know which ones you want. I’m just trying to help, not impose my opinion on you.

First of all, a ton of the best hip hop I am listening to right now…
J Dilla – So Far To Go (feat. Common & D’Angelo)
Black Star – Definition
Warren G – Super Soul Sis
Da Bush Babees – S.O.S. (feat. Mos Def)
DJ JS-1 – Ridiculous (feat. O.C. and Pharoahe Monch
Slum Village – Raise It Up

Then this song, which I originally downloaded for a bit of fun, but now, I totally love. Stupid, terrible 90s pop at it’s worst. It’s so amazing…
Aqua – Heat of the Night

A bit of bass heavy Dancehall from Lady G…
Lady G – Nuff Respect

An amazing version of Under the Boardwalk by the Tom Tom Club, including lovely 1984 Tina Weymouth…
Tom Tom Club – Under the Boardwalk

The stupid heavy bass in this track makes me want to punch someone, in a good way…
Bass Nectar – Bomb the Blocks (feat. Persia) (Ghislain Poirier remix)

A terrible, yet amazing Latinesque, Salt ‘n’ Pepa style song that anyone (even a ghost) will probably love…
FannyPack – Hey Mami

A totally brilliant tropical tune, with a great breakdown and nice bassline…
Uproot Andy – Manuelita (feat. Geko Jones) (remix)

An infatuated bit of melodic, baltimore remixing that will make you dance and fall in love all at once…
DJ Semi – Love Ya
