BTTB - Back To The Basics
Der Offene Kanal ist wieder da! Jetzt nennt er sich Tide und behauptet kein Offener Kanal zu sein, sondern Tide. Aber Bürgerfunk gebe es auch bei Tide. In der Presse ist das noch nicht ganz angekommen - da wird das Programm von Tide immer noch unter dem Namen Offener Kanal angekündigt - und eigentlich ist Bürgerfunk ja auch genau das, was man Offener Kanal nennt. BTTB wird nun also weiter auf 96,0 MHz senden - heute zum 231. Mal. Die Sendung dauert zwei Stunden und wird heute ganz im Zeichen von HipHop stehen.

BTTB-X-Series: Steinski
Hin und wieder werden in BTTB Mixes präsentiert, die man zwar käuflich erwerben kann, die aber so grosartig sind, dass sie unbedingt gehört werden müssen. Steinski von Double Dee & Steinski hat nun einen solchen Mix zusammen gestellt, in dem es um das Label Sugarhill Records geht. Auf der CD schreibt er folgendes:
Steinski If you're looking for a broad overview of the Sugarhill label and its well-known hits, I'm afraid you've come to the wrong place. There are a million of those compilations around for cheap, but this isn't one of them. There's even a fine collection of remixes using Sugarhill master tapes (full disclosure: my friend Douglas and I have a piece on that collection, too), so if you're looking for updated versions of the classics, that's the box set for you.
This CD is a very personal, highly idiosyncratic homage/memoir involving many of the records I bought when I discovered rap and hiphop. I've added a few themes to give the piece some structure and emotion, and several talented and enthusiastic friends contributed along the way.
The rap music I heard in the late 1970's and early 1980's was party music - a generally lighthearted, good-time genre that sprang from playgrounds and social centers in the Bronx. It was rarely heard on the radio (until Rapper's Delight, a song I didn't include), and wasn't widely distributed. In fact, many of the records presented here were first issued on an even smaller label - Enjoy, based in Harlem - run by Bobby Robinson (no relation to Sylvia and Joe), and didn't come to prominence until they were picked up by Sugarhill.
Steinski The longest part of this project was listening to the Sugarhill and All Platinum catalogues and making detailed notes. With a few significant exceptions, the material that appealed most to me was cut with a live band doing the backing track, and that's what's heard on most of the CD. The percussive latin touch is very much in evidence on some of the hottest records. As Cut Chemist notes in the mix, "Sugarhill just had the timbale section on the lockdown." The rappers work in a percussive, syncopated fashion that adds a mighty acceleration to the tracks. There's a real feel of a genre discovering itself, having a party along the way.
Thanks to the other people involved: Paul and Duncan at Sanctuary, for the opportunity. DJ Signify, whose turntable skills, sunny disposition, and analytical ear add immeasurably to the vibe. DJ Milo, who contributed his enthusiasm and deep emotion about the music that's so important to us both. Prince Paul, for devising (on the fly) the saga of the never-ending demo. Cut Chemist, who took time out of a busy schedule to listen and contribuee his critical expertise. Lars Hoel, for his voice-over talent and patience with my "news" writing.
I had a ball putting this CD together. I hope you enjoy it.

BTTB-X-Series: United States of Audio
United States of Audio United States of Audio started DJ-ing over 10 years ago whilst he was still at school. His passion for hip hop began sometime before that when a friend introduced him to De La Soul’s classic album ‘3 Feet High and Rising’ back in the late 80s. After finally being able to afford some decks, he cut his teeth producing countless mixtapes and playing at numerous house parties in his hometown of Southampton. He’s come a long way since then and as his skills have developed so has his diverse record collection. He is now well known for his eclectic and creative DJ mixes, which have been featured on numerous radio shows world wide including Coldcut’s legendary Solid Steel show. Now based in the city of Bath, UK, he is also one of the founding members of Under Construction Records, a small label who are planning their first 7” release this summer. United States of Audio DJ’s regularly in the bars and clubs of Bath as well as in Bristol and London, showcasing his trademark eclectic sound of funk, hip-hop, ska, dub, electro and everything in between. “I don’t like to stick with just one style of music, but whatever I play I like it to be funky!” After the success of last years Back to the Basics mix, United States of Audio returns with another unique selection of tracks old and new.

BTTB - Back To The Basics
Pete Rock ist zurück! Sein aktuelles Album heißt Soul Survivor II und ist damit die Fortsetzung von Soul Survivor aus dem Jahr 1998. Die erste Maxiauskopplung war enttäuschend - das Album ist aber hervorragend. Unter anderem wird er von seinem alten Weggefährten C.L. Smooth unterstützt. Auch Kinderzimmer Productions melden sich mit einer EP zurück, genau wie Mark Rae. Aus Philadelphia gibt es ebenfalls neues zu vermelden: Ahmir ?uestlove Thompson, der Drummer der Roots, erweitert seine 1999 gegründete Online-Marketing-Plattform für Musiker aus seiner Heimatstadt Okayplayer um ein Label und gleich die erste VÖ ist eine Do-LP mit vielen phantastischen Tracks aus Philadelphia. Weitere Neuheiten sind aus dem Hause Ninja Tune zu vermelden, das neue Alben von Sixtoo und Wagon Christ am Start hat.
