This remix of the Fugees‘ track Fu Gee La, by Israeli producer LuqMan, was brought to my attention last week by Wrongg who played it as his last selection on our radio show. LuqMan has stripped the track back and then added his own distinctive heaavy groove, which it has to be said is more addictive than crack.
You can actually download the track for FREE via LuqMan’s Soundcloud page…

It’s a conundrum that’s faced producers since the dawning of the dance age. Scientists have poured over the problem (possibly), governments have invested billions into researching a solution (probably), but no conclusive agreement has been reached. So, just how do those who make music hidden away in bedroom studios, twiddling knobs and coaxing beats out of fried laptop processors, bring their toiled-over productions into the arena of live performance?! Fear not, Jus Like Music has the answer. Well, a few suggestions at least…
1. The ‘Bended Back Laptop Bash’
Perhaps … [read more]
The latest edition of The Jus Like Music Show on NTS is now available to stream and download via our podcast feed. We had friend of the show, Wrongg (aka Wannabeats, aka Roni), over from Tel Aviv live in the studio to spin an all-Israeli set.
We also had a chat with Wrongg and he explained exactly where the scene is at over in Israel now. Sounds like it’s in a good place! Beyond that, we also dropped new tracks from fLako, Salva, Full … [read more]
So, this one was a bit of a bolt out of the blue. Plug, aka Wagon Christ, aka Luke Vibert, has a load of unreleased d’n’b stuff from 1996 that Ninja Tune are going to drop in January. This material was meant to be post-release of Drum ‘n’ Bass for Papa, which long-time fans of Mr Vibert will no doubt be familiar with.
I’ll keep this brief, because we’re not really about the hard-sell or anything, but basically the good guys at Dragontape have created a Jus Like Music app for the iPhone and iPad. It gives you access to exclusive video mixtapes curated by us here at Jus Like Music. The app is like 69p/99c and it will probably enrich your life or something. You can get it on the app store right now.
We will regularly update the app with new mixtapes and will endeavour … [read more]
Following on from the other week’s Portico Quartet remix by YULT, we now have a new video for the track Ruins, which is lifted from the forthcoming self-titled Portico Quartet album. You can also download the track for FREE by going to the website of Real World Records, their record label.
The new album is their third full release and will drop in January 2012. It’s the first release to feature new band member, Keir Vine, and the guys have now embarked … [read more]
The masked man of independent hip-hop, MF DOOM, was at Red Bull Music Academy last week in Madrid to give a lecture. We covered Red Bull Music Academy when it was in London last year and, as always, it featured a plethora of vastly interesting topics and characters; Moodymann was a particular highlight! Anyway, as part of the first semester at this year’s Academy, MF DOOM came to talk to the participants. He raises some particularly intruiging points regards the use of personas … [read more]
Our friends at Poejazzi have just informed us of yet another fantastic event they are putting on in London. This time it sees The King’s Will, Tanya Auclair and James Massiah performing at The City Arts & Music Project (EC1Y) on Tuesday 13 December.
The King’s Will is a relatively new act, consisting of Musa Okwonga and Giles Hayter, who brilliantly combine ethereal electronica with astute and deep lyricism. Tanya Auclair is no stranger to Jus Like Music – having been featured on here … [read more]
More of a visualisation than a straight up music video, but check out this little beauty Machinedrum created for his own track, Where Did We Go Wrong?, from the fantastic Room(s) album.
To be honest, I’d use any excuse to talk about Machinedrum‘s latest album. It’s out right now on Planet Mu and it’s absolutely fantastic. Easily one of the albums of 2011. Anyone who has followed his work over the last few years (and they’ll even be some who have followed him … [read more]
