Future Classic: Seiji “Whisky”

Seiji is hands down my favorite producer from that late 90’s early 2000’s London Broken Beat scene. The good news is that he never stopped putting out absolutely amazing cutting edge dancefloor stuff. He gives tons of free tracks (and not the crappy ones) on his website which you should …

Forgotten Treasure: Kelis “Little Suzie” (2001)

Really cool forgotten little nugget from one of my faves, miss Kelis. This was taken from her second record which wasn’t even released in North America, the record really didn’t believe in it because there weren’t any clear cut singles. I’ve always loved this track produced by the Neptunes of …

Future Classic: DAMU the Fudgemunk “More Supplies”

Been really digging DAMU these past few months. I’ve played a few of his tracks in previous podcast but I think this EP is definitely the first one that I need to buy on vinyl. “More Supplies” is a really strong 5 track EP on clear vinyl. We definitely need …
