Guest DJ Edition

While I was on a Mexican adventure, I asked my man Nate ‘Moonlips’ to fill for me. You can usually hear him for Fullmoon Funkalicious on Fridays. Here’s his facebook. And here’s the show he put together.

The Fat Beat Diet, September 5th 2011

With this wonderful late summer we’ve been having here in Calgary, I thought I’d kick off the show with some nice highlife tracks. Listening to music from hotter climates always warms the heart, I figure. See also: reggae and dancehall, or any latin rhythms.

After some sunny tunes, we move back to Canada for some of my current favourite Canadians.

The Fat Beat Diet, August 29th

Hitting you with some drum’n’bass right of the bat on tonight’s show, then sneaking into some hip hop before dropping a nice set of classic breaks, before dropping back into some hip hop to close out the show.

Catching up on some comments

Clearly I let Dan’s comments slip through the cracks, seeing as he made the comment all the way back in June… But thanks to him, I’ve updated the links from the May 30th show so that they, um, actually work. This was my Gil Scott Heron tribute show, so you should go have a listen.

The Fat Beat Diet, August 22nd

Stumbled upon some of my old D’Angelo records recently, so I had to open it up with some classic material from his Live At the Jazz Cafe recording. Then a little bit of classic soul and equally (well, maybe equally is stretching somewhat) classic Souls of Mischief. Cabfare, with its cheeky Taxi theme  sampling, was an off-album track that became an underground hit for those in-the-know. They recently busted it out for this year’s Rock The Bells LA edition.

Followed it up with another RTB attendee, Nas. I basically use any excuse I can to play Nas. Every and any week that I can… Rocked a bit more hip hop and then took a left turn.

Speeding it up, I had to hit you with a few Katy B tracks. Her album On a Mission peaked at #2 on the UK album charts, but we haven’t heard much about her over here. The album definitely has a pop production sound (read: dense, compressed audio), but with a clearly UK bent, mixing up the beats with dubstep, dnb, and breakbeats. It’s very easy to listen to. At the young age of 22, she’s already got a pretty ridiculous voice. Here she is doing a cover of Maverick Sabre’s Let Me Go, another UK pop song I play a little later in the show.

A couple of more uptempo preface the Maverick Sabre track, and then I had to hit you up with that beat’s inspirational pieces from Portishead and Isaac Hayes.
