No idea what to make of Blackpool grime but Blackpool grime makes it into the show, courtesy of Afghan Dan. He’s also responsible for the most telling / affecting quote from this Noisey documentary – “That’s not really talent, that’s survival” – at the five and a half minute mark.
If you’re keen to dig deeper into the sends, disses and beefs described above let us refer you to the YouTube channel BGMedia, the one-stop shop for all your Blackpool grime needs.
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.

One for the music nerds out there, the amazing story of Donnie & Joe Emerson. A farmer notices that his sons are really into music so he builds them a studio and they record a lost classic in 1979.
Been listening to Ariel Pink’s new album “Mature Themes” and enjoying his cover of Donnie and Joe Emerson’s 1979 lost classic “Baby”. Apparently it’s been known about for years in record collector circles but I only found out about it recently via The Guardian Music Weekly 8 June 2012 podcast.
