and kavsrave next week. never heard anyone talk about kavsrave on here before, dope music.
She beat us to Joe! But two outa three aint bad ;) haha
I'll tune in no doubt: http://www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/b006wqb7 Joe is kind of elusive, I don't think I've heard him on the radio before in the mix, pretty exciting. Really love his trax, the new ones sound insane.
the beats are perfect for me, shackleton's beats are a little too dense and ramadanman's sometimes not dense enough.
not sure about the new joe stuff, sometimes that type of music takes a while to click with me.
is so addictive, when it drops in the clubs its really fun. I think Rut is my fave Joe track still. I see what you mean about Ramadanman, it always sounds perfect in the clubs though. Its only when I'm at home I get that feelin about Rama... Have you heard the Blawan 12" on Hessle, its got that tribal rhythmic Joe kinda feel to it but really diffrent all at once.
Pev's been rinsing it for months now and it doesn't get old. For a producer with such a small catalogue, Joe gets a lot of love - probably because 'Rut' remains such an amazing track, even after all this time. Those big, blocky Rhodes chords and odd, broken beat just kill me every time.
This should just become a Joe appreciation thread, heh.
Blawan's 12" is something else, on some seriously unhinged Hessle/Shackleton crossover thing. I've said this before, but it rings true - at some point in the not-too-distant future people will be referring to this label like they refer to a label like Underground Resistance. A group of incredible producers working together to make something that's both incredibly varied and entirely coherent.
It'll be 'Hessle music' used as a catch all to refer to this kinda insanely percussive, minimalist sound that they've been pioneering and honing over the last 14 releases...
Apparently he's been a drummer for abotu 10 years, that would explanine the knack for mad rhythms then. All the mixes have been ace.
joe's set reminded me of olodum...
blawan 'iddy' is the one for me. hessle audio quality control is ridiculous. the last 3 years of this type of music has been a golden era, the good stuff shows no sign of slowing up :)
don't get me wrong, i know ramadanman is great, not sure i've heard anything in a club, but his set back to back with brackles was good fun at a muddy big chill last year. might catch him at field day too.
Iddy is a mad tune, that first drop is insane. It got pulled back three times the first time I heard it in a club.
Fatback Band — Gotta Learn How To Dance
but the rest was his own stuff.
There is an R&B Joe aint there?
Hessle Joe is number 43 on discogs!
with james blake on piano too.
yo, check this tune with a mad drumbeat that reminds me of joe's set. can't do a link, but search youtube for 'bunker hill red riding hood'. sounds like how i want gonjasufi to sound, but he seems contrived next to this.
mary anne hobbs show up on iplayer now of course.
