Lot of French disco 🙂
In the pursuit of arousing curiosity and discoveries,
Samad JBLE introduces a show where the lack of pattern or predictability is crucial.
A random sequence of music that has no order and does not follow a clear pattern or combination.

One week before the French Presidential election, and with the far-right extremist Marine lePen in the finale, Samad and Lexus decided to go back to a time when Rap lyrics meant something. When it was political and more than just making music, it was an activist movement, and a statement to be “a Rapper”. 1992-1999 aka the golden age of French rap.
PS: This show was purposely recorded in lower quality to enhance the immersion in the French 90’s era. No, just kidding, we f*cked the recording.

Before I recorded this show, I hadn’t listened to any of the music featured; I heard it for the first time with you, the listener.
While I find new music to listen to at a pretty healthy rate, I do tend to revisit the same places to find it. I thought it would be interesting and exciting to reach out to a bunch of friends as to how they find new stuff, go to those places, pick stuff at random without listening to it and play it on my show.
I explored an LA radio station, an all-Ukranian show made in Berlin, an independent garage rock label from Detroit, a closed Facebook group devoted to surf rock and more.

Sample Nation #6 J Dilla
New to London Fields Radio, Maj Duckworth explores the original Funk, Soul and Jazz samples used by some of the greats in Hip Hop. This week he will be discussing the legend that is J Dilla, giving you an insight into the construction of some of his classic production and dropping some facts on the man himself along the way. A small taste of what to expect, there’ll be samples to HipHop bangers such as Q-Tip’s Vivrant thing, The Pharcyde’s Runnin, The Red and much more.
Hope you enjoy the samples
