Nice chorus, shame about the verses

This week is not the first time The Joint has embraced an Eastenders themed track. Anyone remember Osymyso‘s Pat & Peg from the turn of the century?

DJ S1FTER presents Goody Gumdrops

Direct download: The Joint – 26 November 2016

DJ S1FTER fills in, putting the garage back into garage, and maybe even putting a porch on the Porsche. This time he goes MkII Zephyr style and adds a few Kiwi artists –  Scribe, P Money, and a funky Poi E remix. The Jag also gets some attention with tracks from English gangster movie Snatch (“I’ve seen Snatch… and I like it”- DJ S1FTER) bookending the mix with some good R’n’B and Blues Brothers thrown in to keep it worldly. As usual there is a fine selection of house with WaFF, Marlon Hoffstadt & Dansson, and Sideburn & Viktor Kaman. And S1FTER kinda apologises for the Hall & Oates… kinda.

The Electoral College presents… The Joint

Trump can’t be all bad. He picked Manchester United in the Rumbelow’s cup 5th round draw in 1992, setting the Red Devils up for a glorious 1 -0 victory over Nottingham Forest in the final later that year.

The Joint has always prided itself on being “fair and balanced“, but there’s a distinct absence of any top anti-HRC tunes around at the moment for us to live up to that billing today. There’s certainly nothing in the same leagues as those listed over at 30 Days 30 50 Songs, which we drew heavily on in the Electoral College mix. We assume there’s some alt-right country anthem calling her a cunt out there somewhere but that doesn’t count.
