BRICK BANDITS & DIRTY SOUTH JOE PRESENTS
TOLD NOT SOLD PT 1: THE ROOTS OF BALTIMORE CLUB
This is the first in a series of mixes intending to eventually cover every notable release in the history of the Baltimore Club sound. The combination of New York and Chicago house, as well as UK breakbeat/rave era tunes from the late '80s and early '90s, provided the sound's genesis. American labels like Strictly Rhythm and Dancemania, along with UK imprints such as Blapps! and Shut Up & Dance, found a home in every soon to be Club King's crates, and bits and pieces of what came to be known as Baltimore Club can be heard throughout their grooves. For an absolutely CRUCIAL play by play of some of the records that started the scene, DJ Technics has compiled a list (http://www.baltimoreclubtracks.com/history.htm)
This particular mix is by no means comprehensive. I picked these out more or less because of the similarities between them. The Godfather, Scottie B, called it "proper" and that's all that matters to me! It was recorded all the way live on two turntables and Serato with no headphones, cuz that's how we do it at Ol' Head headquarters. Lots of pops and crackles in the cuts, but I tend to think it gives it a "time capsule" sort of appeal. Super shout out to Scottie B and Shawn Caesar at Unruly Records http://www.unrulyonline.com/ and DJ Stumble for the killer artwork www.myspace.com/stumbol
Here's the tracklisting, along with a word or two from Scottie B to put things in perspective:
1. Andrew Dice Clay - Mother Goose (Dance Club Instrumental)
"Woke Technics out of a sleep over this."
2. Petra & Co - Just Let Go (dub)
"One of those house jawns that bridged club."
3. Oji - Original Man
"Great take on number 2."
4. Masters At Work - The Ha Dance
5. Circle Children - Zulu (Braxton Intro)
6. Pirates Of The Caribbean - Tu No Sabe
"See 2 again...Armand again!!!"
7. Big City - Spanish Lesson

8. Greed - Give Me
"See 2...house was BIGGGG!!!"
9. S.o.S. - Crank This Mutha
"One of several takes on a DJ Food track."
10. Hoovers & Spraycans - Hoovers & Spraycans
"First ravey jawn for the Baltimore crowd."
11. Stereo MCs - On 33 (45 King Dub)
"One of the linchpins."
12. ? - Let The Pros Go
"UK hip house rules Bmore!!"
13. Barbara Tucker - I Get Lifted The Beat

14. KW Griff - Odells Beat

Crossfaded Bacon and Mad Decent Records present
Mad Decent Worldwide Radio #30: BOUNCE IT
Mixed by Emynd
I started listening to Bounce music about two years ago and, over the past couple years, have acquired a pretty extensive collection of CDs, MP3s, and records of this really rich music. For those unfamiliar with Bounce, it is a fairly unique strain of club-oriented hip-hop that originated in New Orleans sometime around 1991 with MC TT Tucker's "Where Dey At." Almost 20 years later, Bounce still dominates the urban club and block party scene in New Orleans with very little major label backing. Just as Baltimore Club is based on the Lyn Collins' "Think" break and the Gaz "Sing Sing" break, Bounce beats are based on samples from The Showboy's "Drag Rap" (aka "Triggerman") and Derek B's "Rock The Beat" drum break (more commonly known as "the Brown Beat"). The best club music seems almost always to thrive on calculated simplicity, and Bounce is no exception, relying on MC work that is based on simple call and response chants, straightforward rhyme schemes/patterns, and repetitive dance refrains. My buddy Noz-- http://www.cocaineblunts.com -- has helped me learn a lot about this music and several years ago (right after Katrina), he put together a really great collection of earlier Bounce songs that you can download (http://www.cocaineblunts.com/blunts/?p=690). Also, the first podcast on New Orleans rap has got some good stuff on it as well.
In contrast to Noz's collection of songs, I made my mix as an effort to put people onto some more recent New Orleans Bounce songs and artists that they likely aren't very familiar with. As you'll notice pretty quickly, I've kept the mixing and DJing to a real minimum and tried to move pretty quickly from song to song to fit in as much stuff is possible. There isn't a real rhyme or reason for most of the selections on here. They're mostly just a bunch of Bounce songs I really like, and I'm hoping some of y'all will enjoy this stuff enough to go and support some of these artists. I've provided links wherever possible to help make that search as easy as I could because a lot of these folks have a pretty strong presence on Myspace. Please hit these dudes up on their Myspace, support their events, and buy whatever you can from them.

As you probably know, my first E.P. 'Suspense Is Killing Me' for Mad Decent has been released. You may have heard the title track in Diplo's Turtles mix from last year - and its finally available for purchase! The E.P. also contains 2 other club influenced tracks in 'The Cricket Scores' and 'Bulbs Burn Out' and an awesome remix of 'Suspense' by Drop The Lime.
To celebrate the release I have done a little mix for Mad Decent radio... Its a little selection of my current favourite tracks and influences all mashed together, From old computer game music, poppy stuff like LadyHawke to the hard electro stuff like The Proxy (Who's current tunes 'Dance in Dark' and Raven are the biggest tunes around!!) Techier stuff like Stephan Bodzin, through Popof, Bumpy Bmore kick drums and loops (DJ Sega and Say Wut). Melodic stuff (Oxia) through to friends and crew (Fake Blood, Crookers) and tracks that are just awesome (Focker)
Anyway, I've only used elements of certain tracks in this mix, but all of them are worth tracking down and listening to. I really wanted to use the horns in the Say Wut thing, but I had real problems getting it all in key. Oh and I decided to try and re-edit the Focker track rather than just play it straight. BLah Blah BLah I hope you enjoy it!
Music from Final Fight on the Amiga
Dan Le Sac - 'Look for the Woman' (Fake Blood Remix)
LadyHawke - 'Paris Is Burning' (Peaches Remix)
The Proxy - 'Ready To Watching'
Bodzin and Huntemann - 'Rubin'
Popof - 'Alcoolic'
Say Wut - 'NFL Ho'
MIA - 'XR'2 (Just the drums)
Dj Sega - 'Bodies Hit The Floor'
Oxia - 'Domino'
Rekorder - 'Rekorder 00'
Memphis Bleak - 'Is That your chick'
Crookers and Boy 8-Bit - 'The Crow'
Late of The Pier - Focker (Boy 8-Bit Re-edit)
Alan Silvestri - Robot Romp (From Flight of the Navigator)

Now we just signed up sega to do this Hollertronix number 8 and its kinda got me thinking like how the hell did this kid from the bricks out in West Philly decide to make mudvayne and drowning pool remixes with lil jon samples.. thats just a snippet of what the brick bandit crew is up to.. this mix goes over his whole crews sound - the crew ranges between philly and newark , NJ- the brick bandits... tameil, mike v, tim dolla among others are murdering it right now. its not just a bmore thing - we got the video podcast coming next to show u how nuts it all is
