Rubadub’s Back Room Boogie Experiments – Pt.1

NEW WEBSITE. NEW BACK ROOM BOOGIE EXPERIMENTS.

Rather than just having to listen to one man’s shite (not the artist),  then we are extending the Back Room Boogie Experiments, where there will be contributions from various members of the Rubadub clan. ( Ed – We’ll see about that)

The vibe is.. sharing with you what we are listening to in our back rooms of an evening, (when I say back rooms, I mean the house, rather than the super club), and  deem that the the record is worthy of a mention. Nothing more than that. You can decide yourself whether they are good or not,. I’d like to think most will be, but while we like to think of ourselves as very professional, I’d imagine there will be few slip through where the author has been on the Tennent’s.

I’m going to kick off this Back Room Boogie Experiments and share what I’m listening to right now with you. . think I might be repeating myself already..   but what I’m not going to do, is talk too much shite.  Just records..  do I need to say.. it’s just records ? I’m sure you’ll know that anyway..  (Ed – apart from a cassette)

FIRST UP IN BACK ROOM BOOGIE EXPERIMENTS…

First few ones I’ve got playing are from a  wee batch I brought home today.  (Ed – this was actually written couple weeks ago, and just not posted.. common problem that with DJ Doh here). .. Think there could be few belters in here . Just realised the first 2 listened to are from Japan.  Samo DJ & Maxxbass – SNAKER008. Sounding like I’ll get my moneys worth out of this, and this other bad ass mofo T’s-001. BRF. Freaky Japanese Techno.  On the minor chord, and rough as. (but that might just be my needle). Thinking U-Trax meets Jamal Moss on a bullet train. Japanese Techno records.. like buses.  Here’s an upside down pic of the Future Sound of Japan selection..

(Ed – Also from Japan. NCA PAN. on Cassette. Check that out.. if you’ve got a cassette ‘player’)

Now I’m delving in to this blast from the past.. well about 2 weeks ago..  (Ed -now 4) .. but suspect will be on the deck for more than a few weeks to come. ISPT010. Le Matin Isaiah Tapes. However just checked this link, and the killer track I’m listening to now, isn’t there. Guess you’ll just need to buy the record if want to know what that sounds like. There are others on there worth the purchase anyway. VFM.

YA NUGGET

I also got this wee nugget of a present sent to me last week.(Ed – now  3) It was like Christmas come early. Egg box for packaging, cracker of a postcard enclosed, and a belter of 7 inch record. Amfibia21. I think there’s some Japanese connection there as well.

THUMBS UP !

Thumbs Up record on TTT ! Anthony Naples – Slice for Life.  Bought this last week (Ed – now 2), not knowing what was. Nailer. Loving it.  Flipping it. Big up ma man Anthony Naples, who’s been releasing some seriously good shit on his Proibito label. Consistently. I’m just looking for my PRB019 test. Had for a while. Love it, but canny find it. But anyway, it’s released next week. (Ed – now last) Check that out as well. Although I think I just ventured into talking about records I’m thinking about, rather than playing. Can’t allow that !  “Oh aye I was thinking about that belter of a tune, in fact I’ve not even bought it yet”.  That’s for a different blog. There’s no shite talking on here !   (Ed – too late) . PLAYING NOW.. the new Novel Sound NS-15. .. both sides.  I seem to have moved from Japan to NYC ! Here’s a wee pic of some Brooklyn Beats.

THE TEACHERS THEY ALL LAUGHED AT ME, ESPECIALLY IN GEOGRAPHY

I seem to be getting very geographical about my music this evening.

But If your going to get geographical about your music, then you’ll struggle to beat this. Especially if from the west coast of Scotland. Big in Brodick !!
