Norman Jay and Rampage have both expressed their apologies as this they wont be attending Notting Hill Carnival this year due to circumstances out of their control..
Norman Jay said:
'It is with real sadness and profound regret that I am left with no alternative but to officially announce today that GOOD TIMES sound system are unable to participate in this year’s Notting Hill carnival festivities due to a myriad of extenuating circumstances, some of which were simply beyond our control. After endless meetings, countless late night brainstorming sessions and many sleepless nights, we concluded it just wasn’t possible for us this year to present a show worthy of your high expectations of us.'
'For the first time in 17 years of participating in the Notting Hill Carnival, Rampage will not be part of this year's event. We always aim to improve the experience for the audience at all of our events, and in line with this we were looking to implement some changes to our location for this year's Carnival. This requires a huge amount of work to ensure it is done to the level that is expected and unfortunately our exhaustive summer schedule including residencies in Aiya Napa, Ibiza and Dubai has meant that we have been unable to complete this. We wish all the disciplines within carnival, and the attendants they attract, a great and enjoyable carnival at the weekend. We look forward to returning bigger and better next year for Carnival 2012!

For anyone that doesn't know, Kutmah is a SICK SICK SICK Disc Jockey.
This is a little something he knocked up yesterday - while messing around with an edit of 'I Wish It Would Rain' by the Soulful Strings, he decided it needed some vocals, then stumbled upon an acapella from another Brainfeeder crew affiliate, Gonjasufi.
In Justin's words: "I didn't edit the vocals down right, so they sort of just float over the track. Anyway, I really like songs with "Rain" in the title. Oh and "butter".
Both things seem fitting right now.
Don't forget to cop the Kutmah 'New Error' Mix CD's right HERE.

This is taken from his forthcoming mixtape 'The Live Supremacy', the second release in his 'Live Trilogy Series'.
You can still cop Volume 1, 'The Live Identity' right HERE.

Real safe humble guy too.

Today we have a beat from The Alchemist. Casual's I Gotta (Get Down).
Alchemist uses a track from Don Ellis' album soaring, released on MPS in 1973. MPS/BASF is a fantastic label with some really amazing artists and music including releases from Monty Alexander, Dave Pike and George Duke and some more obscure artists like The Novi Singers, Joachim Kuhn and Peter Herbolzheimer to name but a few. If you are out digging don't look over this label.
This is another sample that most people would skip over. Its pretty quick and hard to picture it turned into a pretty RAW beat. He definitely hooked this one up!

More & more tracks poppin' off from The Game's forthcoming new full length, The R.E.D. Album, and it's more & more looking like it's gonna be one of the hypest albums of 2011.
This new joint is no exception, produced by 1500 Or Nothin' and drafting in Odd Future's heavy hitter Tyler, The Creator and poppa Young Money,
Lil' Wayne on the vocals - no surprises then, that this is a little dark, a little hardcore, and a little pissed off at somebody.
The R.E.D. Album drops August 23rd 2011. Be Ready.

Ok last one for the day, I thought I would do a bumper post today as I have missed a few weeks.
The war report is one of my favourite hip hop LP's ever and I thought I would post up some samples from here!
This one comes from Rodger Hodgson, the founder and vocalist of the band Supertramp. This is from his first solo album after he left the band in 1984.
Used by Charlemagne in the song 'Halfway Thugs'
Capone & Noreaga 'Halfway Thugs'
Roger Hodgson 'Only Because Of You'

I thought I might do another one today so here we go. This comes from my love of the Japanese instrument the Koto.
Folk singer Odetta traveled to Japan ,performed some traditional japanese folk songs and put out an LP while she was there. This LP being where the Break for today comes from.
Sampled in East Flatbush Projects 'Tried By 12', Odetta's version of the traditional 'Sakura'

Today we have Rachel Sweet's song 'It's So Different Here' sampled by the beatnuts for 'We Got The Funk'
Great example of taking a loop that most people would otherwise not notice. Nice creative use of a record. I know I seem to be posting some pretty obvious stuff right now but I think a good beat is a good beat, no matter how obvious the sample!
I will be going deeper with the breaks soon, as I will do a UK special.

This is Volume One of a series of 60 minute mixes looking back at the time when Hip Hop and R&B first hooked up and formed that "Swang". New Jack Swing. Swingbeat. Hip Hop Soul. Call it what you will..
Teddy Riley and LA Reid & Babyface pretty much ran everything, haircuts were high, slanted, faded and covered with tramlines, clothes were extra extra baggy, trainers were extra extra fly, and everyone knew how to do the running man. Everyone.
This was the Summer sound of the city.. Yep yep.
It went a little sum'n like this.. Swang it!..
