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.
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.
Nic James is here. It’s about time. My favourite DJ in Dublin right now. He is playing True Stories this week.
Here are some tracks I would like you to hear.
First off a real fun Electro style Baile Funk tune with cool cut up vocals.
FrikStailers – Baile Frik
This song is my absolute favorite bit of Hip Hop right now. If you don’t already know it, then take it.
Ol’ Dirty Bastard – Lift Ya Skirt (feat. Missy Elliot)
I am also playing this a lot – “Hit you with the dick, make your kidneys shift”
The Notorious B.I.G. – One More Chance
Here is a Tropical Hip Hop remix I did of Maluca off Mad Decent. I would really like to know what you think of it.
Maluca – El Tigeraso (Orlando remix)
I would like to have made this song. It is totally dope. Tropical with a wicked female MC and amazing marimbas.
Timberlee – Gunny Gunny (Schlachthofbronx remix)
Everyone keeps talking about UK Garage and I think Roska is UK Garage. Plus this song is the business. The original is pretty good if you haven’t heard it peep it out.
Zed Bias – Neighbourhood (Roska remix)
This song is very good. It has a bit of a tropical beat with nice horn stabs. It has a very different sound to alot of the stuff I have heard recently.
Fool’s Gold – Surprise Hotel (M.A.T.H.E.S. remix)
This last song is amazingly beautiful. Layered delayed female vocals over a building euphoric beat, that would be perfect at a beach party as the sun rises.
Lusine – Two Dots (feat. Vilja Larjosto)
