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
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

Barry “Whisperjack La Rock Arcs of Tetric” Farrell. There is just too much to say about him really. The glue that holds Dublin together. Known for a million things, from his band, the Arcs of Triumph and his various nights, like Sundown on Sundays, and Bad Glamour. And guess what? yes, you guessed it; He is playing True Stories this week!
I don’t really know what Glitch Hip Hop or Glitch Hop is, despite the fact I looked it up on Wikipedia. But it sounds good from what people have showed me, and I am definately really excited to hear a whole set of it this Tuesday.
It is also Pancake Tuesday and we are not going to have anything to do with that at True Stories, so load up on them before you come.
Here is a glitch hip hop song that Barry recommended to get you in the mood.
Jay-Z vs. Glitch Mob – 99 Problems But A Glitch Ain’t One
