Who knows? Maybe it’s an end of financial year frenzy, or perhaps it’s the little box of 7″ magic that arrived on the doorstep this very afternoon from the wonderful Jet Set records in Kyoto (and Tokyo… lets not get pedantic), but tonight’s show felt like a scorcher. Though others, (like the increasingly pricey Soundquake), have larger catalogues, Jet Set always seems to have a couple of 45’s I need that I can’t find elsewhere, and their prices and service can’t be beat. I know 7″s are getting harder to come by, and the vast majority of DJs are content to play sterile files,  but that just makes me want to ensure I can get every possible standout sizzler possible. Jet Set also have many local delicacies, like whanged out Nipponese sludgey disco and bizarre hoo-ha that can’t easily be found elsewhere, and currently even a 7″ from Macka Pee, (I was tempted….) Would the Wolverhampton wonderer and veteran UK DJ Macka B be happy about that?
There’s a whole heap of tunes I could have pulled out for a week long run on StinkInc, but for sheer audio audacity it has got to be Zarita’s crazy Cumbiafied take on Suicide’s untouchable ‘Ghost Rider’. It’s one of those so wrong it’s right kinda things, and given my resistance to much of this bish-bosh-bashed together type of tackle which can often be artless and assembly line … well I dig it. I’ve had long bouts of intense Suicide listening over the years, and I’d consider this a song that is really personal to me, so South San Telmo’s Zurita has pulled the rabbit out of the proverbial hat with his minefield gymnastics on this one. 
There’s a free download EP (with a cumbiatronique ‘Stopper’ el masho on there for Cutty fans) that you can pick up legitimately freeeeeee here from the worth checking Cabeza!  bootleg net label, though nothing really comes close to the majestic madness and font of frivolous fun that is the Vega & Rev Argentinian away-day. This has been posted on Mad Decent and/or  some other big billing blog so no doubt everyone and your nan has it, but just in case, mp3 below (just click on the divshare logo to get to the mp3 btw, as some folks are seemingly not familiar).
We’ll get some more cumbia hooha up here soon… and tomorrow I’ll fling up a little double local stinkclusive.
