I love a Top10 so here’s a random place for random top10s. Could be your favourite summer jams could be a photo from a 90s mag. What I love about the ones from the mags is they tell you who was playing exactly what and when. No just remembering the cool ones in hindsight. Here’s the godfather of balearic to start…
Two killer top tens from Moon… The piece was from the mid-90s I think and was in the great Mixmag Update.
A Zed and Two L’s
What a tune
Oooooh that DIY chart. In fact both are ace.
And the last one for now…
How many good records in that… Thats nuts.
Still amazes me that Gerald hasn’t made a penny from Voodoo Ray, according to his recent social post.
Makes your blood boil.
“And now for something completely different…”
The parallel universe of Bay Area independent rap music was so admirable even if you care nothing for the songs themselves. Guys routinely moved six figures of singles or albums either on their own or through one stops.
Virtuality - Dub Funk. What a tune
aww…i remember spinn inn records fondly…its now a frigging tesco express
I’ve seen a lot about RBL Posse online recently.
Interviews and maybe re-issues of their records.
I’d never heard of them until recently, I need to check them out.
Noel Watson’s Gogo Top 10 (19/1/85)
Insanely good production. In-A-Minute was a label with so much impact from the Bay up to Seattle plus Kansas City and probably not many other places. “Bammer Weed” definitely had a bigger reach than most other songs not made by the few national names of the scene.
