Don't get me wrong - I'm a massive fan of The Goodies (for those who don't know, they were a very funny British comedy trio from the 1970's), but my giddy aunt, is the cover to this album downright scary! Beastly Record . . . well that depends on your ... See full review
posted a review of Spinal Tap - This Is Spinal Tap - Up To 11 Edition. 2 months ago
One of the greatest movies ever made - even if it is a little too close to home for us musicians! It's a movie that gets funnier and funnier every time you see it, and not to mention ridiculously quotable.

Side B (Hem till gården - "Home to the Farm") is actually a vocal cover version of the theme tune of the famous British Soap Opera series 'Emmerdale'!

Brilliant funky soul tune featuring the sultry vocals of the legendary Joss Stone. Definite floor filler for Funk/Soul nights.

The amount of epicness on this reinterpretation of the Crystal Waters classic 'Gypsy Woman' is unbelievable! This is so, so, so, so, so, so, so, so, so, so good!

Be careful if you come across any records by the Beatles that's supposedly autographed by the Fab Four - a lot of them are forged. It is well known that back in the day, that their roadies (Neil Aspinall and Mal Evans), the Beatles Fan Club secretaries ... See full review

First heard this on a DJ Mix by famous Skint Records DJ and founder, Midfield General (Damian Harris). Absolutely incredible Jazz-Disco-Funk awesomeness. Must check out Dexter Wansel's other tunes sometime!

WOW - what an amazing record! Classic Marvin Gaye awesomeness complete with the funkiest funk imaginable - You would be such a fool not to like such an incredible tune.
posted a review of Unknown Artist - Hammond And The Golden Hits Featuring Hammond Organ And Percussion. 6 months ago
Some may find this cheesy, but I just love these Hammond Organ covers of 1960's standards. It's the sort of music that Feathers McGraw (the villain from the Wallace & Gromit film, 'The Wrong Trousers') would blast out on the loudspeakers.

Having a full live orchestra just adds an extra layer of epic awesomeness to an already amazing album! If you like Pete Tong and the Heritage Orchestra or the Hacienda Classics but with Dance Music substituted for the Golden Age Hip-Hop stylings of Nas - ... See full review

It's CRAZY to think that this amazing album is now 20 years old - Still one of my favourites.
posted a review of The Wiseguys - Start The Commotion. 8 months ago
Really great remixes of an already stellar Big Beat track. Especially love DJ Spinna's remix, which goes for an almost Big Beat-Meets-Electro Swing approach, which is quite a departure from Spinna's usual Hip-Hop and House productions.

The legendary creator of Hip-Hop culture - Without him, the world of modern music would be a very different (and much sadder) place.

One of the funniest men to ever come out of the UK. This tour has some of this best routines such as "Cheese Cake", his send up of the 1980's game show, Bullseye and his impression of an incomprehensible wedding DJ. The best way to experience this show ... See full review

The Walt Disney of the video game industry responsible for the ultra-popular Super Mario games alongside The Legend Of Zelda, Donkey Kong, F-Zero Starfox and other classic franchises from Nintendo. A wonderful guy and ridiculously talented to boot.

Not really into R&B but this is actually a really good song similar in vein to "Crazy In Love" by Beyonce with some funky production with big drums. On a side note, whatever happened to Amerie?

Unlike those creepy e-mails to do with viagra, the Spanish Lottery or inheriting money from a Nigerian Prince - this is the sort of Spam I like - You'd be a total gumby not to like the genius that is Monty Python.

Easily one of the greatest living DJ's on the planet. His style is very varied ranging from Trip-Hop to House to Funk/Soul, Reggae and Beyond, and I believe his eclecticism is the key to his longevity because his style isn't pigeonholed as being part of ... See full review

You may have heard "Ghetto Shout Out" on Daft Punk's 1997 Essential Mix - It's awesome, samples Michael Jackson's "Billie Jean" and is full of motherf*cking expletives throughout (think F*cking in Heaven by Fatboy Slim).
