推薦:Tru-Thoughts Presents Hint



個人非常喜歡的nu-jazz廠牌Tru Thoughts旗下藝人Hint又有新的mix帶給大家!!快去Samurai.fm收聽!!!

Already boasting an extensive body of work behind him, Hint notably went on to release his debut album 'Portakabin Fever' on Ninja Tune in 2003. Straight No Chaser remarked that "this will warm your lazy heart" and The Big Chill deemed it "some of the most beguiling pastoral electronica that you are ever likely to hear". All of which is clearly complimentary and all of which goes to show that even though the chilled massive embraced his music, there's a lot more going on besides.

As a DJ, Hint covers an expansive range of styles, flipping scripts from hip hop to broken beats, funk to house, and jazz to dubstep. Just check his numerous remixes for Tru Thoughts and Wah Wah 45's to sample his heavy dancefloor pressure. He may have dropped a cheeky laid back album, but on the decks he certainly knows how to rock a dancefloor! One of the man Hint's most poignant achievements to date was being invited to record a Peel Session at Maida Vale.

This was broadcast in May 2002 and is a stand alone testament to this artist's talent.Hint has been a good friend of Tru Thoughts for many a year now. He was first found on Tru Thoughts (whilst signed to Ninja Tune) on the Shapes One Compilation with a track called "Back To The Wig" which was a nod to the club night that Tru Thoughts label boss Robert Luis ran in Brighton on a Wednesday night at The Jazz Place between 1994-1999 (and as a young music fan was where J Hint first got into the style he now creates and DJs). With a change of style and direction, the next Hint release was on the Tru Thoughts Shapes Red Compilation, with his "Tremmuh" track (which appears on his new EP). "The Tremmuh" was voted as best new track on J Da Flex's Underground Knowledge show on 1xtra. This track caused a big stir at TT Towers so we decided to release it in its own right!

This change of style shows the development of Hint and shows a vastly different side of his music to his album Portakabin Fever. This dynamic dancefloor orientated EP may surprise, but excite, many a new and old Hint fan! Hints new EP "The Tremmuh" is released on Monday 12 December 2005.

samurai.fm would like to congratulate our mates over at Tru Thoughts on their Worldwide 'Best Label' award. Big cheers for the TT crew!

Messeffect:05'~06' live



12/17 @ 海邊的卡夫卡(CAMPOlive)1900~2200

info:這是CAMPOlive第五次的活動,由我跟欣儀(DJ HSIN)的雙人搭配set出發,橫跨60~80的兩小時長途旅程.(由於海邊的卡夫卡所提供的Pioneer DJM-500有相當多的問題,因此在一陣慌亂之中趕緊請有種唱片運送DJ BennyEcler Nuo-2兩軌戰鬥型混音器過來替換.然而Nuo-2再強悍帥氣的外殼之下出力卻是異常的小(*1),而且send/return功能奇弱無比,大型橡膠製3 band EQ手感比想像中來的不優,我的Korg Kaoss Pad 2完全沒有發揮應有的效果,可惜!)

(*1)海邊的卡夫卡並沒有提供DJ的監聽喇叭,內場聽起來是很吃力的.而且出力似乎不夠大,催到底還是很小聲.




吾人當天的新set以最原始的2.0set做延伸(正確名稱未定,等期末考完應該就會錄好)調性統一在95年後半至98年的Abstract hip hop以及Trip hop的延伸混音為主體,期待能表現出陰鬱壓抑的矛盾情緒以及Abstract樂種的多面向性.

p.s:感謝那天到場的所有朋友,DJ馬特,1976的阿凱,阿道,欣儀,Benny,小髒........etc



12/28 @ EDEN(Black Party)0200~0300

info:福樓唱片所主辦的hip hop主題免費派對,吾人可能將以2.0與1.0的歌作一些調整以配合當天的舞池需求.當天DJ陣容有:

妳走的像亞熱帶小島的春天

貓眼彈珠回映的時間 考慮著光與和諧


她拿起報紙 留下一朱墨在壁



二手螢光幕 好萊烏動作片 薄荷口味莎邦尼涼煙.






在乎巴黎的時間 唱著洋人的語言 想到了幾個不錯和弦 坐上小小的翅膀 encore
