    Episode 134 : Keeping Our Heads Up

    Episode 134 : Keeping Our Heads Up

    "If you not at the table, then you on the menu."
    - Jahi
    This is not the summer we thought we were getting, but I'm going to at least partially overlook that and put some tracks in the mix that are perfect rolling music...even if we're only going to pick up essentials at the supermarket! There's some old(ish), some brand new, and plenty in-between. Oh yes - if your system has the bass turned up, turn it back down, or the third track up is going to destroy it...
    The sad news came in after the music was already recorded, but Rest In Power to Malik B, best known for his work as a founding member of The Roots.

    Episode 133 : The Struggle Continues

    Episode 133 : The Struggle Continues

    "Why you think Bobby and Huey P were heat holding?"
    - Toki Wright
    It's been a very up and down month, which I imagine isn't at all a unique experience. This episode reflects some of that, marking the eleventh birthday of the podcast while also recognising the incredible Black Lives Matter street protests that have been taking place over the last few weeks. The selection takes that as the main theme, and I think it's a solid mix that you'll enjoy - and one where almost everyone will learn one new track at least.
    By the way, today would be a good day to arrest the murderers who ...ed Breonna Taylor.

    Episode 132 : All Love

    Episode 132 : All Love

    "They don't never see the work, only results of it."
    - Rapper Big Pooh
    Another month inside, and one that has been tinged with sadness; we say Rest In Power to Ty, Andre Harrell, and the soul legend Betty Wright. The month's selection starts with a favourite of mine from Ty's catalogue, and though the styles change, we keep a steady pace all the way through - I know some of you are running to try and stay in shape during this time, so I hope it helps!

    Episode 131 : Strange Times

    "History repeats what you refuse to learn about."
    - Planet Asia
    Another month inside, which I'm sure is a test of patience for many. It's been an odd one, which feels like it hasn't been any less busy than normal, and so the rhythm of podcast production has pretty much been as usual. The selection ranges from some of my earliest, brokest vinyl purchases to the latest releases of the digital age - hope you all find something in there that makes you rewind (and then buy an album)!
    Rest In Power to Arch Stanton of Mothership Connection, Bill Withers, Ebow of Foreign Beggars, Fred the Godson, and Stezo...

    Episode 130 : In The House

    Episode 130 : In The House

    "We'll get the drums goin' so y'all can dance again, don't worry..."
    - "Old Man" Ebro
    I think it's fair to say that this has been a month like no other, certainly in the UK, where the restrictions on movement that other places in the world were ahead of us on finally came down. These are strange times where we're all trying to get used to new ways of living, but I hope this month's show has some tunes that can lift your mood a little!
    As mentioned in the show, Hip-Hop Chip Shop are selling gift vouchers which you can cash in when the restaurant opens back up - and crucially, for every one bought, they'll donate a meal to someone in need!

    Episode 129 : Wheel And Come Again

    "I don't wanna be a playa...I just coach the team."
    - Lord Finesse
    I had a new experience recording this episode - making an error which meant I had to re-record the whole thing again! Still got it out on time, and so we have our annual tributes to the catalogues of J Dilla, Big L, and Big Pun - alongside some other heavyweight picks. We open proceedings with something fairly topical...
