Ageing B Boys Unite! End of Summer Show 80s Groove Special

abu_august_2016

After a disastrous (sorry) night last night AGAIN due to my flaky broadband connection, I couldn’t stream a show and so I am updating with bits and bobs I have missed updating.

This show was broadcast on the last Thursday of September 2016, with Repo lettin’ you ‘ave it with some classic 80s soulful grooves amongst his usual mix of spot on humour and melon twisting adverts from TV & radio of yesteryear.

I know I’m late on the update, in face after this there’s another 3 shows to post so that should keep you busy for a bit!  Anyway, don’t lose faith in Disco Scratch as all our shows now will be directly broadcast from our server as my streaming connection is just too dodgy!

ABU! Returns end of September as the leaves start to turn brown & drop, then end of October, ABU!, Digging4Victory & Disco Scratch once again combine in a funky triumvirate to feed your ears with a special combo mixtape… see you all soon!

 

End of summer 2016 wrap up

So, I sit in the POV tonight, this bank holiday Sunday night, the last gasp of true freeness before it’s all back to normal… Next week will be buying uniforms, kids moaning, sorting out diaries so after school clubs don’t clash etc etc etc…

I always have the summer off and this year is no different.  I didn’t go away this summer, just a couple of days off here and there.  2016 for me will be remembered as the summer of Stranger Things.  This TV series has really, REALLY inspired me.  I absolutely love it and the incidental score has been my soundtrack to summer.

With time marching on and the nights drawing in, I am really trying to get some normality back with regards to Disco Scratch.  Long time listeners will know that there was a time when DS was weekly, but things beyond my control forced my hand.

Anyway, the autumn is always like a new leaf for me… funny really, I can’t explain why but it’s my favourite season, I love it when the evenings get chilled, you need a hoody to go out, it makes me buckle down & GET SHIT DONE!  So, starting this coming Thursday, each month will be as follows… a LIVE DS show on the first Thursday of the month.  Polystylism & Digging4Victory on the second Thursday.  The 3rd Thursday is available for ANYONE to do a live show or an exclusive mix, last Thursday of the month as always is Ageing B Boys Unite! with Repo.

I have recognised that I can’t do too much without upsetting the apple cart, so this is a realistic schedule for me.  So, hopefully this will be the way things will go over the coming year.

Lastly, I am archiving a lot of content on the DS server.  I have finally run out of space!  I have 50GB of space that I have been paying for over an almost 10 year period & that is now full.  So, the first year of shows is being removed from the server, but available as a download from 4 different services, namely Mega, Mediafire, Mixcloud & Mixcrate.  Hopefully, even if one one of these fail the others will stay up.

Also I’ll be posting soon with the NEW DS phone number.  Call in & say whatever you like about whatever you like but remember we will play your calls on the show, so don’t say anything you are not 100% sure will get “out there”!

Number coming soon…

So, thanks to all crew who have stayed locked & check on a Thursday even though they get nothing… I know, it’s annoying, but hopefully with a stricter but less work schedule I can provide the sheeeit you neeedz!!!  Anyway, enjoy the last bit of summer, see you in the autumn… Peace, Wax.

Saucy Summer mix with ABU! & Digging 4 Victory

Saucy_Summer_Mixup

Last nights show replaced the usual Ageing B boys Unite! show, however Repo repped ABU! as one third of the show… so it was a special scintillating speedo wearing BBQ summer special with 2 hours of tunes to get you through the summer heat (if it stops pissing down!)

So, get in your deckchair in the garden, or sit by the pool, put your headphones on and enjoy the summer vibes!  Tracklist in the comments…

Disco Scratch Radio MC Gels In Interview

imgres

Out of the Bronx, New York, aged only 18 YEARS OLD!  My melon was twisted when I first heard some of this cats material on Soundcloud… I thought he must be in his 30s at least because of the flow, delivery & production of his music.  Gels is an unassuming self made rapper, who leans on the early 90s golden era of Hip Hop for his musical influence.

Along with production from the likes of MPADrums among others, Gels spits lovely flows over real ,nice productions.  Think he’s only on the slow tip? Nope, he can rhyme at pace too, he’s a real versatile MC and I thought it only right to give him some props on Disco Scratch Radio.

Hearing music like this just makes an Ageing B Boy like me very happy, it makes me know that the torch has been passed to someone who will keep it lit…

Anyway, the show was meant to be 2 hours but my internet connection kept dropping out & I didn’t realise that it had stopped recording from the first dropout, so I only have the interview for this show, but it’s a great listen for those that don’t know him.

He has a new LP entitled “Wandering Souls” which is now available on his Bandcamp page, you can also listen to him on Soundcloud and get at him on Twitter & Instagram… he also has a Youtube channel.

Here’s a quick link for you to peep his stuff, then cop the whole interview at the bottom either download or stream… oh, you can hit him, up on Facebook too.  If you do get a message to him or cop his LP, tell him Waxer linked ya! See yas next week…

Disco Scratch Radio April 21.04.2016

Dry spell? Bastard drought more like! So I dusted off the mic in the POV and did the first live Disco Scratch show since Christmas last year!  What can I say? Too much work not enough play I’m afraid, but anyway… So usual format tonight, some new tracks starting off with the dopest UK tune out there, in fact scratch that, THE BEST TUNE OUT THERE RIGHT NOW FULL STOP! DJ Supreme & Son Of Noise with RIP, then getting into some more new flavour, with a few oldies chucked in for good measure.

The Video to the Supreme track has 2 fellers involved in it that I’ve known for a good few years now, Pritt Kalsi & Andy Higgs, they did a quality job on this & I salute them!!!  Of course bigup to all crew that were involved… this track has been on repeat since it appeared on youtube!

So here’s the download in case you missed it last night, honestly, if you have any idea about attention to detail you’ll be loving this, as drunk as a fucking monkey on ABU niceness!  Dope busy chatroom with lots of old and some new faces, Format is a very interesting bloke & extremely humble, I’ve known of him for years & had some contact over the years but honestly not ever sat down with him & chewed the fat, so Repo did that for me!

If you LOVE Hip Hop & the old school and want to hear the opinions of someone who truly understands & knows what he’s talking about, get your shell likes round this show… props to all crew who listened in live…

ABU_Formate_March_2016

Tomorrow night at 9PM in the usual spot, the Disco Scratch Radio page, poppin’ the top of the Bronx-0-meter will be Repo136 with special guest DF Format… Format needs to introduction to the initiated, but if you are new to the show, or to Hip Hop, or the internet (naturally instead of typing “tits” the first time you experience Google, you’ll type Disco Scratch Radio), Format is a producer/DJ who has an impressive back catalogue of Hip Hop and funky shizzle, peep his past here:

So it’s 2016 is it?

Fashionably late to the party here I am posting about new years… well I suppose that’s how it is these days for me… right now I’m having a hot flush! One of those things your mum used to have in the 70s.  So I’m at work A LOT… but hopefully this year I’ll be taking on an apprentice & a few blokes to do the daily grind so I can kick back & bit & do more that I enjoy, like the radio!

It won’t happen overnight, it’ll take time… so for now I’ll be doing radio when I can, I LOVE live radio, interaction with all crew…but I gotta do the work & family stuff first… so, give me a few months & hopefully I’ll be back weekly… I have a lot of audio that I have recorded over the years that I think needs to be aired so I’ll be uploading things to Disco Scratch to keep you entertained… who knows, I might get on air every now & again!

I’m in the process of just running a few recordings through some mastering software & will be uploading soon so hopefully you’ll be getting these in your iTunes/RSS feeds…

In the meantime I have been enjoying this all week, so speak to you all soon, salute!
