How is it that I’ve only just found out about Ebo Taylor? Ah well, better late than never I guess. This new discovery led me to kick off the show in an African mood. Speaking of the rhythms of Africa, have you seen the latest video from Chris ‘Daddy’ Dave?

Dave initially caught my ear as a drummer for the Robert Glasper Trio, whose jazz Dilla covers I’ve played before on the show. He totally wrecks this Fela Kuti joint, and I mean that in the best of ways.

Anyways, Africa quickly leads to Latin America, which then leads to funk then hip hop. I’m super stoked about the recent announcement that Rakim is coming to town. Then after a small detour through Acid Jazz, we’re back into hip hop. Don’t sleep on that Clams Casino production stuff either, it’s making my ears bleed these days because I’m playing it so loud and often. I had someone request a biggie song via facebook (Have you like us there yet?) so we played a bit of that too. I was just checking the request quickly on my phone, so I didn’t actually listen to the track at all before playing it so I wasn’t really sure which version was requested. To cover my bases, I played two versions but as it turns out, neither of them were the right one, lol. Ah well, better luck next time.

Finally, some recent Calgary fire by way of longtime mc Bedroc Ox. If you’ve been to a hip hop show in town, odds are you’ve heard him spit on a mic. Go cop his new track track Smash here:

So enjoy the show: I’m really happy with how it all turned out.
