Sample Nation x Maj Duckworth Vol.8 : James Brown and HipHop

Posted on: May 23, 2017

Maj Duckworth is Celebrating the legendary James Brown’s Birthday and his contribution to Hip Hop with a twist on the usual theme. This week is all HipHop that’s sampled, Mr Dynamite. Moving through the 80s into the 90s and a small taste of some 2000 era HipHop, all taking inspiration from the Godfather of Soul and his music.
Throughout the show Maj Duckworth will be giving you a musical education with some James Brown facts and the Drum section is back, but just a little different, it’s all songs that have used the famous Funky Drummer Break.

Hope you enjoy

Natural Element #39: April 2017

Posted on: May 10, 2017

The latest instalment of Natural Element, recorded on Sunday 30th April 2017.

A real journey through sounds ranging from latin and jazz to some deeper house and funk. Unfortunately, someone messed with the recorder beforehand and the show recorded in very low quality – nothing I could do! Hope you dig the vibe nonetheless.
