Simply Having...

Here's a lil' freebee track from Black Milk & Melanie Rutherford, knocked up on Crimbo Eve Eve, probably around the same time Bobby was holding it down at Main Squeeze's Crimbo Crunk Special, and Mo was holding it down with The Nextmen in Bath.

This joint right here be nice...


Merry Crimbo to all y'all.
Wherever you are, whoever you're with, have a good one,

Much love,

Rough Trade DanceFloor 2011 Special - BobaFatt

It's that time of year when ey'body and they dogs are getting together their end of year round-ups. Skillz is probably writing his 2011 Rap Up as we speak.
This is one I did 3 weeks ago for my regular radio spot, Counter Culture Radio, on Resonance 104.4 FM every Thursday midday to 1pm, hosted on rotation by myself and a few of the Rough Trade crew.
(Peep the Rough Trade Mixcloud page also HERE)

This mix is a run through of my favourite joints from the perspective of the Dance Counter in Rough Trade East. This is what I've been buying in and selling the most of, the ones that got a lot of love from myself, customers and the buzz machine alike.
Hip Hop, Electronic, House, Techno, Bass music and beyond.

It's an hour of me chatting shit a bit and mixing tunes a lot, live on the air, with an additional half hour mix thrown on the end, cos I'm a little OCD like that..

People that've checked it been telling me they're really feelin' it, so please, go peep it, and if you're in the Brick Lane London area this Friday (Xmas Eve Eve), I'm back at the Big Chill Bar, no doubt busting out a bunch of these tracks, for the Main Squeeze Crimbo Crunk Special.
Swing though y'all!

One love & Merry Christmas,
Bobby x

Halftime To Tell...

'Elmatic' = One of THE Albums of 2011. And it's a recreation of an album that's over 15 years old.. Says a lot.. But we done spoke about this alot already.

Here's two videos from it.

Elzhi reminding muh'fuckers once again, Detroit still got some shit...


The Roots - UNDUN from The Ghettonerd Company, LLC on Vimeo.

To mark the release of the new Roots LP 'Undun', here lies a short video to compliment the new album.
The black and white exploration into music and life from the Philadelphia collective finds their latest offerings as a sonic backdrop for the exploits of a fictional character named Redford Stephens. Directed by Clifton Bell, “UNDUN” serves every bit as an album sampler as it does as a piece of art.

Foul Breeze...

This joint was originally meant to drop in 2008 for mixtape purposes but it got held up in the mix. “Foul Breeze” uses the “Faded Lady” sample by S.S.O. Orchestra. You may recall hearing that sample on Diamond D’s “Went For Mine” and Busta Rhymes’ “New York Shit”.  Hopefully this song is more of what we can expect from the rumoured Lost Tapes II album. 

Raw (How You Like It)

 Common - "Raw" by ThinkCommon

This new Common album is looking ti be a classic.... We featured 'Sweet' earlier last month as a banger... Alongside 'Ghetto Dreams' feat Nas, the first three singles have been dope...
