It's been a while since I dropped my last show so here finally is the next installment. As always, you can check me at www.myspace.com/analogueonthecut for the latest developments, including information on new night Middle 8 which I'm co-running monthly at the Elbow Room, Leeds.
Crackhouse Recordings are an independent label from Leeds who deliver not just Hip-Hop but also an entire range of eclectic styles and put out music from some well known and loved acts from the Leeds scene including Fulibulbus and Danny Pig.
Our man in the North, Analogue, has been ultra-busy as usual, but has made the time to produce two more off-the-hook radio shows which we are just too pleased to be able to let you listen to and download at your leisure. As ever he is showcasing the best of Leeds Talent, so lets get on with it.
This is another solo mix show. After a hard day at work and with no MCs up in the place, I decided to flex the soulful side of my record collection alongside the usual UK and US rap bangers. Look out for our regular shows every Thursday night 9-10pm on HHBRadio.com.
This show features 4 times Jump Off Champion INC on the mic, representing Leeds, London and the Vagabondz crew. You want sick flows? We got 'em. The next Vagabondz night is at The Faversham, Leeds on Tuesday 18th September and features a headline set by Gentleman's Dub Club.
My latest HHB Radio show saw an appearance by Minneapolis crew Tru Ruts (TruthMaze and EG Bailey), who we were lucky enough to catch in Leeds before they flew back to the States. Also in the place were Monkee from the Invizible Circle collective, talking about the forthcoming UK Self Destruction / Stop The Violence project, and Lady AI from Afro Physics (check the AP EP, out now).
Leeds DJ are now dropping a show a week on HHBRadio.com – every Thursday 9-10pm. I'm hence going to be getting these archived shows online more than one of a time. This time we have a bumper selection of four shows available for your listening pleasure…
This is our live show from Thursday 19th July, featuring three very talented heads from the Leeds scene - DJ / Producer Kidkanevil and MCs Testament and J Bravo. Beats, cuts and lyrics as usual, plus some beatbox action from Testament and an impromptu film review section. Pure random...
Easy all... I've been lucky enough to link with the very talented people at HHBRadio.com and am now doing a live Straight Out Leodis mix show for them. For those who don't know, HHB is the number one internet radio station for UK Hip-Hop. They're the only station out there with a 100% UK Hip-Hop playlist and feature hosted shows by the likes of Tricksta (Wolftown / UK Runnings), Evil Ed and Jabba The Kut.
This is the third Straight Out Leodis show as broadcast on HHBRadio.com. No guests this time round, just me and Ant Black up in the studio doing our thing with a mix of US and UK tunes. Look out for the following forthcoming on the station:
What what people. It's been a bit more than a month since the last edition of the podcast... I've decided it's better to do things right than do them quickly. In future I'll be dropping these as and when I have the time and material to put together a properly good installment (which should still be fairly frequently).
