Rolled up in the studio the other day at All Day Play and caught the homie DJ D-Sharp who was killing it on the turntables rocking joints off the new Public Enemy album, ‘Most of My Heroes Don’t Appear on No Stamps‘ .I was set to do a Fear of House Music Planet pt2 this week, but after hearing the PE joints..I had to go back to the Hip Hop roots and follow suit.. So I went and snatched the songs off Itunes and opened up my set with one of my favorite PE songs a remake of their classic Shut Em Down (the Functionist mix). If you haven’t heard it, its off the Revolverlution album and has a nice futuristic vibe..
Next we came with a song off the new PE album called WTF which talks about the Occupy Movement.. Its pretty cool, Chuck is on fire with lots to say about the important issues Occupy raised up.. Later on we go into a killer track called Get Up Stand featuring Brother Ali.. This joint is smoking and yes, for those who tuned in.. D-Sharp had just ripped it 15 minutes earlier, but so what.. Good music is good music..plus sharp gave his blessings.. LOL
After rocking around a few more joints we jump into the house set.. It wasn’t the one I had planned to do, but its a good one.. We went digging in the crates and brought out some joints like Black Science Orchestra – City Of Brotherly Love and J.U. Ice – It’s Just A Groove along w/ Tech Nine – Slam Jam which all served as good transition records from Hip Hop into House..From there it was all fun under the sun.. as we went from deep to Hip House to Todd terry and uptempo break beats.. Next week we’ll try and do Fear of House Music Planet pt2.. But like I said we couldnt sit back and not get a piece of the PE action.. D-Sharp set off.. On a side note for those who are interested.. DJ Malachi who comes on before D-Sharp honored a listener request and did a a nice hour long Hip House Set.. You can download that episode HERE Luv Luv Radio: Episode 118
Anyway enjoy this week’s set..
