Thanks Folks!
The Fat Beat Diet – October 29th 2009

Well, yet another funding drive has come and gone and I wanted to take a moment to thank all of you who pledged your hard-earned money to CJSW, but more specifically to you fine folks who pledged on the Fat Beat Diet. It’s truly rewarding to see all the community support for our little radio station. I hope you all like the mixes I’ve put together as incentives.

As such, no show archive this week as I suspect you all don’t want to hear me yakking for an hour and half straight — I certainly don’t. The tracklist went something like: A-Skills vs BeatVandals – Money Banger; various tracks from the funding drive mixes; The Temptations – Ain’t too Proud to Beg.

Thankfully, next week should see the return of normal Fat Beat Diet programming.

Funding Drive!

Hi faithful listeners. It’s CJSW Funding Drive time again. If you’re not familiar with the concept, you should read the post I made about it last year, as not too much has changed.

Those of you who are familiar with the Funding Drive and are wondering what kind of tasty treats I’ll have on offer… stay tuned! I’ll be updating the blog once the goodies are all finalized.

So pledge early and pledge often.

(And by early, I mean between 10:30pm and midnight EST today!)

The Fat Beat Diet – October 22nd 2009

Pre-Funding drive edition of the show, so I thought I’d hit you up with a selection of tunes which I’ve really been digging of late. Falty DL’s Party, 2000F & J Kamata’s  You Don’t Know What Love Is, Fred Wesley’s House Party, and The Hot 8 Brass Band’s ridonkulous cover of Marvin Gaye’s Sexual Healing have all been on pretty heavy rotation here at Beat Diet headquarters.

Aye, Caliente! Some latin to kick it off this week, then some old school breaks before chilling things down towards the end.

The Fat Beat Diet – October 8th 2009

This week, we start off with some afrobeat before taking a terribly mixed detour over to some Stone Roses before recovering with some hip hop. Marking the passing of the great Mr Magic, we let the old school rock for a little bit before bringing you back to recent times with some newer hip hop.  Apathy’s True Love has been my favourite song of the moment, fo sho.

The Fat Beat Diet – October 1st 2009

Drum’n’bass to start before dropping into some downtempo and hip hop beats, then into some dubstep and then some electro to end off the show.

The Fat Beat Diet – September 24th 2009

This week, we take a moment to celebrate the life of turntablist pioneer Grandmaster Roc Raida, who passed away unexpectedly on September 19th. We start out with a bit of Raida’s 52 Beats mix followed by some of his work with the e-xecutioners. Then, back into the mix with some assorted beats. Again this week, technical difficulties conspire to prevent me from sharing the show, but hopefully the 52 Beats mix linked above will hold you over for a little while. Here’s the playlist.

Showfill Bonus: Mental Illness September 6th 2009

I’ve been a bit slow keeping the site up to date, so I thought I’d try and make up for it with a few bonus mixes. This one’s from earlier this month when my man Cosm asked me to fill in for his usual Sunday show, Mental Illness. Gotta give my man props because he manages to fill 3 hours of hip hop each and every week with more enthusiasm for the music than seems possible, always coming correct with great tracks, and he keeps up on the new stuff and the local scene a lot better than I manage to do so…  So it’s always an honor and a lot of fun when I can take some time on a Sunday afternoon and play some hip hop tracks on his show. So while Cosm was filming a video in Kananaskis Country with Moka Only and Teekay for Dragon Fli Empire, I was playing a few golden era hip hop joints as well as some great new stuff from Elaquent and some local stars — Just how I like it. Hope you do too.

The Fat Beat Diet, September 17th 2009

It had been a while since I had done a mostly funk show, so that’s what ended up happening tonight.  Some nice mellow longer funk tracks to start out the show, before the typical DJ affliction of attention deficit disorder started taking over the breaks started coming a bit quicker.
