Yarah Bravo reports via her MySpace page that her husband, DJ Vadim, has been diagnosed with a rare form of eye cancer known as Ocular Melanoma / Choroidal Melanoma. This is terrible news and my thoughts go out to both Yarah and Vadim.

Brand new, pretty much pornographic, video for Flying Lotus‘ track Parisian Goldfish. Any regular readers of this blog will already know of my great love for Flying Lotus and his varied body of aural works, but now we get to enjoy a visual spectacular! The dude’s face is just priceless! The video is banned from YouTube and pretty much everywhere else except for Dance Floor Dale, which is where the above has been embedded from.

Dwight’s back, tell a friend! Out of the kindness of his heart Count Bass D has put a high quality (320kbps) instrumental LP on the net for free download. It’s called Robbed Without A Pistol and you can grab it straight from his blog. It’s 30 minutes of pure Count Bass D gold – blending that unique combination of soulful sounds and tight beats, it’ll be on repeat at JLM HQ for some time.
People Under The Stairs will be releasing Fun DMC, their sixth full LP, on 30th September though the !K7 imprint Gold Dust.

It’s 60 minutes of top beats and freestyle raps, spanning the decades of classic hip-hop beats.
A pretty mean mixtape indeed and … [read more]
Jazz&Milk label head Dusty has a brand new EP out now on vinyl, and then also out digitally on 1st October – it’s called Keep It Raw, and frankly, it’s immense.
Jazz music has influenced an unfathomable plethora of genres and artists over time, but in recent years – minus straight up contemporary jazz – the influences have been just that… influences, floating somewhere under the track playing second fiddle to a break-beat or hip-hop rhythm. I still haven’t fully consumed the notion, but … [read more]
This week Jus’ Like Music has been the Blog Of The Week over at internet radio station Break Thru Radio – which is both an honour AND a privilege. So those kind guys have been featuring some of my blog posts through out the week, but… today I appeared on their radio show The Anatomy of a Blogger – so you get to hear my mumbling English voice over the internet airwaves, lucky you! So head on over to Break Thru Radio and tune into … [read more]
Last week I wrote about the latest in the Ninja Tuna series from Mr. Scruff – the lead track was Music Takes Me Up featuring Alice Russell, “a real head nodder with a very addictive melody” as I said then. Well as you can see above there is a video out to coincide with the official release of the EP. Mr. Scruff has made Alice Russell out to be a right lemon – but in the nicest possible way of course! Oh, and look … [read more]
