Hands Up For The City

More tempo'd action here, with a quick rendering of this delightful hiphop track from the recent digital-only Chrome Children 2 remix album from Stones Throw Records. I always like hiphop tracks with good samples in them, and this one fits the bill nicely...

Roc C - Living For The City (Tempo'd)

All we hear is...

Just a little heads up to let you know we've recently started a new 1 hour OOFT! radio show on Glasgow University's Subcity FM. Alongside sporadic FM broadcasts throughout the Glasgow area you can catch each show live online every Tuesday between 5-6pm GMT here. If you miss one we'll be posting the links to listen again too. Like this! This weeks show featured tracks and edits by ourselves, U-Tern, Andy Ash, Talib Kweli and Matthew Dear amongst others, so tuck in ;)

Our Friends In The East

Five20East have just put some of their vinyl back catalogue online and so we thought we'd have a little root around and see what digital and analogue gems we could pilfer for your pleasure. Here's a couple of oldies and a couple of newies as Autumn closes in. We've also included the original pitched down mix of The Hong Kong Micro's version of Bob Seger's Nite Moves. The house version was featured on the second L.E.S.S. volume. All are 128kbps for 14 days. No sleeping.

Craig Smith & The Revenge - Let Yourself Go
Double Dragon - Geez Funk
Deportivo Street Team - Acid Jerks (OOFT Music Remix)
The Hong Kong Micros - Closing (The Original Bob Seger Track)

Our Friends In The North

A new guest posting is up next, courtesy of Aberdeen's Funky Transport. Holding down Scotland's northern outpost of underground house nights week in week out at club Snafu in the Granite city, Funky T's extensive discography reads like a who's who of premier record labels, including releases on Classic, Playhouse, Hi-Phen, Chez and Brique Rouge amongst many others. He's been getting tuned into this little blog site and has given us these edits to share with everyone. First up is a grooved-up edit of Sergio Mendes, and second is a housey reworking of Earth Wind & Fire. Boom.

Bjorkin' Marvellous!

I was totally blown away by Bjorks performance at the Connect Festival last weekend. Not at all what I expected, although with Mark Bell (of LFO fame) twiddling knobs I should have known that it would be fairly up my street. It's probably the best live gig I've ever seen, which is nice. Anyway I've tempo'd a cut from her latest album Volta called "Innocence" at 117 bpm so it's now playable by us Disc Jockey types.
