I'm going to go

Well peeps, winter's arriving and from next week the mytea@om crew are decamping to Europe for 4 months, so it will be a little slow around here for a while. The crew are takin' up the very generous offer of a Vdub campervan for the duration.Heading south from Rott'dam to the delights of Tuscany-Umbria, Milan to spend xmas, the mountains of Piedmonte for new year, along the beaches of the French Riviera, back up west-side to Breton and coast it all the way back to the land of the Nethers....That sounds exhausting just typing it...well we'll see how it goes, so for the time being, here's a bit of old-school early analog bass, discofied house for ya!....still sounding phat after 25 years. A remix from da house GodMaster Frankie Knuckles on Italian label FullTime Records....Hopefully get a couple of more bits up for ya before we offski!

Film - El Cantante

Marc Anthony gave his all musically and theatrically in bringing to life the story of the rise and fall of salsa legend, Héctor Lavoe (1946-1993), as told from the perspective of his wife Puchi(JLo). It's a tale of talent - creating salsa with Willie Colón, with the Fania All Stars, and as a soloist - and a story of disintegration - fueled by drugs, alcohol, partying, and depression. Puchi's voice - proud and querulous - dominates off-stage as Héctor's does on.excellente!

Città Londra

Dug out from the depths of the chest of unreleased gems from Jahtari's NET-7 label is this highly addictive vocal cut by El Fata on the so called "Survivor" riddim, recently appearing on Soom T's cracking "Dirty Money EP" A lyrical document from the dark days of Babbling Bush & Liar Blair, an intense tune with a powerful message, unstoppable flow and El Fata's ultra-sweet harmony treatment is bound to win hearts, minds and mash up the dance. Disrupt strips the tune down on da Bside inna bare version of the riddim...big up LDN!
