Digging in the pockets

So good I paid full price!

1. Afro Latin Vintage Orchestra – Homo Analog

Pulsion LP | Ubiquity | 2014

Some solid library-esque tracks on here, worth checking.

2. Chrome & Illinspired – Nerve Centre

The All C n I LP | B-Line Recordings | 2015

The duo from Norwich drop their first full length release on B-Line. They’ve been in the game long enough not to disappoint.

3. Omar – Fuck war, make love

The Man LP | Freestyle Records | 2013

His best album so far? I think so… LOADS of nice stuff on here.

4. Hashfinger – Buried Treasure

Bandcamp page

The Bradford-based beatmaker returns with his second LP on Headcount Records… Essential purchase.

Digging in the crates

Inspired by a series of videos I watched / listened to from the Red Bull Academy Music lectures.

5. Eric B & Rakim – Set ’em straight

Let the Rythmn Hit ‘Em | MCA | 1990

Taken from their third LP, I don’t hear many people play this one out… classic.

6. Erikah Badu – Back In The Day (Puff)

Worldwide Underground | Motown | 2003

Another track comped by Mr. Scruff, definitely my favourite track of this LP.

7. A Tribe Called Quest – Description of a fool

People’s Instinctive Travels And The Paths Of Rhythm LP | Jive | 1990

Jesus this was 25 years ago!

8. D’angelo – Africa

Voodoo LP | Virgin | 2000

My favourite track from D’angelo’s second LP, totally different vibe to the rest of the long player.

Cheap as Chips (Digging through Discogs)

Picked 3 LPs (2 of which were double albums) for just a tenner (including postage), which was a bit of a bargain… here are 2 of them.

9. New Sector Movements – The Sun

Download This LP | Virgin | 2001

The term ‘downloading’ still seems quite new to me… this LP is 14 years old… I’m showing my age.

10. Underwolves – Thin

Under your sky LP | Compost | 2001

Had a CD dub of this since it came out and finally grabbed the vinyl recently. I like the album a lot but more so than the tracks I LOVE the artwork by Martin Grover… in fact I would go so far as to say it’s my favourite cover full stop.

11. Incognito – I see the sun

Amplified Soul LP | Ear Music | 2014

Lovely Summer-tinged soul that Incognito do so well.

12. Andy Cooper – Bring it to me

The Free EP | NA | 2015

The Ugly Duckling MC drops a free download EP worth checking out.

13. Vangelis Katsoulis – Enigma

The Sleeping Beauties: A Collection of Early and Unreleased Works LP | Into The Light Records | 2014

Really nice collection of rarities from this Greek ambient music-maker.
