Midweek tip of the hat. New show has flown the nest.
It’s 45 and this month I’m chuffed to say it’s me and the stellar RITCHRD on selector duties.
Me for a bit and then ya man and then me for a bit more. We kick off the show with some exceptional bitter sweet courtesy of Long Arm ft I.V.A & drum collaborator Ruslan G. It’s an incredible thing but sadly it’s been released because it’s the only surviving song off Long Arm’s next album for Project Mooncircle that was lost last month! Get it, mourn it, I swear when I heard that had happened a tear came out my eye.
Looking forward to the new Apollo Brown instrumental album ‘Thirty Eight’ due on Mello Music soon. Apollo without tired rappers is always a treat. We got the sneak ‘The Answer’ which is heavily on the DJ Shadow tip. If you don’t like Green Assassin Dollar, you might wanna stop listening to ADTRAX for a bit. Two more belters from three new projects turned out this month. I would have put more on but I felt mancrush ashamed.
What else, 2 tracks featuring rapper Oliver the 2nd, the guest spot on the beatless Jonwayne Annie-Mac freebie and in tandem with Jeremiah Jae on the Ka-esque ‘Survival’.
There are 2 tracks from label to watch Rap Vacation’s Family Jams Vol.1. Proper excited about this splinter cell of fractured nextnuss. 2, lots of 2’s, from the excellent new DIBIASE ‘Excuse the Tape Hiss’ EP. One from the quality De La Dilla tribute beattape, always nice to see some Dilla tributes that don’t suck.
Kickdrums and ‘tronics from a number of directions including some nice electrictech from datassettes excellent record for R&S, ace Zapp-monstrous cover of Curtis Mayfield’s “The Makings Of You’ by Chromadadata, biggun from Pomo, All build-up from the man-of-the-mo Leon Vynehall and lots of other shiny things to caw about.
Sandwiched in between that lot is a proper pearl of where-it’s-at courtesy of San Fran’s RITCHRD.
Been an absolute pleasure getting to know this dude a little bit over the course of this month or so. When I approach people about doing guestos I am always saying ‘just do what ever you want, do something creative, something that feels like you.’ Well mission accomplished. Now you are able to hear what a nitrazepam disco ball of 5% tint hip hop energy unleashed through malfunctioning future music technology sounds like. Need a break from your waking nightmare of capitalist realism? Been waiting 25 years for a new World Class Wreckin’ Cru album? Yes, thought so, then spark one up and clear the decks for this perfectly paced bit of right-on featuring SENSEI HIMSELF, Culp, BOLO YEUNG, XXYYXX and a shtload more with, gasp, 3 poison-umbrella-top-secret rubs from the man hisself.
All of RITCHRD’s new music is delivered through Soundcloud https://soundcloud.com/ritchrd and Bandcamp http://ritchrd.bandcamp.com/ so I advise you to go and press follow on those because there is compelling evidence to suggest there is going to be something with a yield-to-weight ratio of 6 megatons appearing on those web addresses in the next year or so. If you haven’t already been bumping the little bit too good MAGICHATBOY joint from a couple of months, stop being silly please. You want drum lessons, you can get them here by listening to this track ‘thousand.’https://soundcloud.com/ritchrd/thousand
If you want to get to know more about this mysterious night creature, then well good luck to ya, he doesn’t really do self-hype, although a twitter follow will provide you with some political leanings, some witticisms and a koan or two. https://twitter.com/ritchrd
Or you could read this, which is an interview that I didn’t have with him & gawd bless him for signing it off!
Next month, vurr happy to say homie Blameful Isles (Honks Burry) will be providing guest action. Gonna be a deep one.
Get to www.adtrax.co for more music and more commentary that makes little or no sense. I update the TOP 20 DLS section weekly at least, so if you don’t have the time to trawl Soundcloud for the best freebies, have a look at that page now and again for all manner of bestnewsht.
Hope you enjoy. Lv lv Duchamp.

The news: Christian Parrish Takes the Gun. Remember his name.
The Apsáalooke American Indian hails from the Crow Nation Reservation near Billings, Mont., and on March 21, the MTV Iggy blog named him Artist of the Week from among hundreds of competitors.
What makes him special? Well, he raps under the name “SupaMan,” he sings, he makes crazy drum loops, he’s a champion powwow fancy dancer and sometimes, if you’re lucky, he does all four at the same time.
Still my favorite thing to listen to.
YOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO WATCH THIS YOU WILL REGRET IT IF YOU DON’T I SWEAR TO GOD
A track I originally did for a modeling reel/short which can found on youtube:
I enjoyed the track so much that I made a long play of it. I hope you enjoy it as much as I did. For….Free…..Download ;)
The Blob - FREE DOWNLOAD!
“The Blob is 32 minutes of beats & sounds that have otherwise been orphaned by their hell-bound father. It is largely unmixed and occasionally offensive.
James Lynch played bass on the one that sounds like an elf orgy.
Allyson Baker played guitar on the last one.
Mastered by Joey Raia.”
