Hope all is well with you and you’re all staying safe 

This is my tribute to Madlib, one of the best Hip Hop producers to ever do it imo. Back in the late 90’s me and mate Rees used to make each other mixtapes. We’d try and one up each other by finding mint tunes that other the one hadn’t heard. So spent a lot of time buying underground Hip Hop cd’s. We stumbled on an album called Superrappin’, the stand out track being New Years Resolution by Lootpack. Had never heard of them before but was impressed with a producer that would take on a Preemo sample. Their album Soundpieces : Da Antidote followed and the rest is history. Tunes spanning the last 22 years, please enjoy my Madlib retrospective….

Another Pete Rock Remix...... The problem with putting together a tribute mix for a legend like Pete Rock is there’s soooooo much material to choose from, 30 years in the game, it’s hard to break down. So with my selections I tried not to overthink it, some obvious classics and some maybe not so , but guaranteed all killer no filler ( and this is just volume 1 ) So without foither ado, please enjoy PETE ROCKS : Volume 1 : Mixed by AllyAl Tracklist Fades ‘Em All ( Pete Rock Remix ) - Jamal When I’m Flowin’ - Rakim Da Two ft CL Smooth - Pete Rock Respiration ( Pete Rock Remix ft Black Thought ) - Black Star Family Affair ( Pete Rock Remix ft CL Smooth ) - Mary J Blige Tru Master ft Inspectah Deck and Kurrupt - Pete Rock Shut ‘Em Down ( Pete Rock Remix ) - Public Enemy Tinseltown to the Boogiedown ( Pete Rock Variation ft Lee Majors & Mos Def ) - Scritti Polliti By Any Means - Smoke DZA & Benny the Butcher Real Hip Hop ( Pete Rock Remix ) - Das EFX Dilla Bounce ( R.I.P ) - Pete Rock R.A.G.U. ft Raekwon - Ghostface Killah Flow On ( Pete Rock Remix ) - Lords of the Underground Bumpy Knuckles Baby - Bumpy Knuckles If You Got Love - Non-Phixion You Can’t Stop The Prophet ( Pete Rock Remix Instrumental ) - Jeru The Damaja They Reminisce Over You ( T.R.O.Y. ) - Pete Rock & CL Smooth

Episode 47: Cherry Coloured Funk : The Music of the Cocteau Twins : Mixed by AllyAl

And now for something completely different..... Howdy Hope you're all well and staying safe. Now then, where to start. The Cocteau Twins, Elizabeth Fraser, Simon Raymonde and Robin Guthrie, one of my favourite groups of all time. Formed in Scotland in 1979 and disbanded in 1997. How to describe them, labelled as Goths initially, dream pop, shoe gaze, ethereal, none of these fully explain their greatness or sound imo. Too hard to pigeonhole, a truly unique band. If there is such a place as heaven and it doesn't sound like Elizabeth Fraser I'm not sure I'd want to go. Probably better if I let their music do the talking for me. Featuring tracks from 1982 through to 1996. Some obvious selections, some not so.

Howdy Hope all is well with you So, on New Years Eve we learned the sad news that Daniel Dumile aka MF DOOM had passed away, gone back to the essence. Had been a massive fan of his music from the KMD days but it was really when he created the DOOM persona he hit genius levels imo. A totally unique artist who will be greatly missed For this tribute I went deep into his catalogue, featuring music by all his personas, DOOM, Viktor Vaughn and King Geedorah, and some of my favourite guest appearances, working with other artists. Probably a mix more for aficionados than casual fans but if you're a first time listener, might be a good place to start.
