Accept no substitutes.

Gotta a helluva sore back...so ain´t sitting in this chair for too long, gonna be brief.
Here´s the isht from last week´s do.
Yeah, myspace-murdoch-space....views have and will continue to be expressed about it, but through it i have exchanged x and learned about y. Dub Gabriel and Maga Bo for example came to my attention via ourspace and hence z, they provided us with a preview to their new respective albums. Dancefloor friendly, lyrically armed to the teeth slabs of low-end theory with movemental tops.....knowhatimean! Check Bo´s blog (click on Bo above, if you haven´t already) for the latest running´s just down the road from his yard in Rio.

Two friends here have asked about ´Dubstep´ this week, so i answered with the selection below.
ANS, from Prague has the first release on new label Studio Rockers, out this week, and also got a refix of Amy Whinehouse by my ever charming friend Tony Moody Boy Thorpe. Apparently the heads at her label flipped when they heard this mix.....

Kicked off this week´s show with a new joint from Ben Harper and The Innocent Criminals, great sentiment in the lyrics....basically saying Don´t Let the Bastards grind ya down. We are not alone....actually we never have been, it just feels like that sometimes.

Don´t watch this space, just come back next week.
All the beats

Next week Thursday / jueves, i´ll be spinning at the pre-InspiraciónTenerife shin-dig
in Puerto de la Cruz. This event was originated by the promoters CDI, who with the council of
Puerto put on the festival of electronic music. The council later registered the name, and jacked CDI off like they was nothin´. With the recent local elections in May, the new council in Puerto have seen to give CDI their fair dues and gave them the call. Next week´s thang is gonna be at the beach, Playa de Martiánez. Do drop by if your in the area, i think the tax/entrance is reasonable six euros. Trevor Fung of HigherGround....(not Leftfield connected one) and Carlos Dominguez also sharing the decks. More info at www.inspiracióntenerife.com, although it wasn´t functioning last time i checked.

Radio Pimienta meanwhile will be holding an open house....food, drink, conversation, and tunes from MAD, the host of Mextura2, and contributors to his program, BFunk, Eddie Souzzo and Dab Maia, as well as i. It´s a Saturday afternoon thing running until midnight. We will also be recording for future programs for both Ear Conditioning and Mextura2.
