Having Mykal Rose up tonight, was a rare treat. Since he only flew in early morning, and would have been well within his rights to draw the cream crackered card, it was a bit last minute, and I wasnt able to go through and pluck some of his 7″s as I’d hoped to. Not to worry he bought up his new album (the title of which escapes me, though he did say it) which is out next monthish and packed with Sons of Jammys’ productions. He was happy to lace me with a copy, but the laptop wasn’t reading that disc…. talk about frustration. Hanyways, as always the whole interview and time spent was a bit of a blur, and I’ll have to get my hands on the the tape, and maybe put a couple of snippets up here. Wish I’d been able to record him singing along to his own tunes (and Busy’s ‘Trading Places’ too!!) in the studio, what a voice… still. I’m seriously looking forward to Thursday, which will be his first time with his Sydney-based nephew, Judgement selecting for him.
Away from the Rose gardenings, here’s a cut from Brendam Moeller’s fourth Beat Pharmacy album ‘Wikkid Times’, which dropped in late ’08, and arrived with several other saucy slices from Piccadilly today. The line-up of vocalists (Coppa, Damon Aaron, Infinity, Paul St Hilaire, Ras B and of course Spacape) is inspired, and though the South African, New Yorker veers towards the ultra-cleanliness that I frequently find a tad cloying or downright offensive in this kind of gear, it never crosses that line. I can’t rah on about it too much as I’ve only really had a chance to skim it’s delights, but I suspect it’s going to get a throttling in shows to come.

Buy the CD (no wax ,schmert) please.. thanking you.. .. .. .. .. .. .. .
