The Show: Hip Hop XLIV

For reasons we won’t go into here, but you can read about there, August 11th 1973 is officially the day hip hop was born.

We’re not going to argue but instead use it as an excuse to present a 100% hip hop show show (albeit one week and one day late).

Starting with The Hood’s mash up “40 Years Of Hip Hop” , moving through our usual quotient of all things rap related, then onto BBC Radio 6’s  Freak Zone “Freaky Hip Hop Mix” and rounding things off with Paul White’s free mix tape “Everything You’ve Forgotten”.

The show: Watch out. Here comes Heavyfuzz!

Poly-O-Rythmo returns this week in his Heavyfuzz guise, playing the African fuzz funk from Nigeria, Benin and Mauritius plus much, much more.

In case you were wondering about his bona fides, NowAgain Records describe him as a “New-Zealand based psych-zealot” who helped piece together the Soundway compilation “The World Ends”.

If all this has just whetted your appetite have a root through some of the blogs that we came across when compiling the links for the playlist – Oro, Dusty African Grooves, With Comb And Razor, Voodoo Funk and trawl the archives of the, apparently, now defunct Radiodiffusion Internasionaal Annexe.
