Kode9 get rinsed

Kode9 (Hyperdub) serve up the latest editon of the DJ series DJ Kicks, out June 22. Heres a wee sneak preview, for download free.

Kode9- "You Don't Wash" (dub) (stream) (download)

Taken from his forthcoming DJ-KiCKS mix, Kode9's "You Don’t Wash" is, much like the mix CD, an amalgamation of his current influences. The track jumps with personality, the 4x4 kick drum pulse shuffling itself a touch to create a bombastic groove that is peppered with glassy hi hats and marimba. It’s not that obvious that it’s a Kode9 production until the thick chords appear around the two minute mark, careering into earshot suddenly, elevating the atmosphere and sporadic ascending bass snatches perfectly.

New video from Damian Marley and Nas

Off the album Distant Relatives, tune is As We Enter, which samples Mulatu.

Stax o wax

Mean sounding, chopped up Stax tunes, check it via Crate Kings.

"Such notable artists as Issac Hayes, Booker T & the MG’s, Albert King, Otis Redding, the Bar-Kays, and Rufus Thomas provided the foundation for the tracks while each producer sampled, chopped, flipped, reworked, and added some of their own soul to create something uniquely inspiring and new. The compilation, which consists of 37 tracks original tracks, was mixed by Rafferty and features original artwork by Flipa."
