o prince, o, o

Scavenging, a sever. Tw1tt3r prompts - other people's lives are interesting when and only when they find the words. Example @kkingdomm
Some kids havin a rap battle on the train. One kid kinda spit like Cassidy the other one was a toasting. Lady next to me said "this is some YouTube shit."
I've ridden trains with tinny mp3grime coming out of phonespeakers, yoot pushin each other to try the flow, but in the uk we never get the kinda commentator kkingdomm's carriage got. There's this voice sayin "this is some CrimeWatch shit". I'm at odds with the narrators I keep hearing - I've said it before, I gotta get me a new narrative.

Really enjoyed this one, Joe -- some top class selections. LOVED the Mark Morrison remix, must revist the original.

Zinc: back when I was big into d&b, I rated him quite highly. What I liked about his best original productions --'ska', 'casino royale', 'fairfight' -- was always the drum programming, he seemed to have a way of lending a quite simple break some kind of swing, dunno how, something to do with the samples and some kind of clever highhat stuff. Raised some otherwise (bassline etc) generic stuff to a higher level. Felt the same about this tune you played -- all about the drum sounds. He also had a nice line in tearing remixes -- his Shook Ones remix is a monster floorfiller that I would still play to almost any crowd (

Oh yeah, the Drumcorps thing was crazy. Hah.

I could natter more, but I best get some work done...
