Hello – Firas here again from NME Radio, filling in for Jon Hillcock from 10am every day while he’s away.
Just thought I’d share with you what’s been locked on my iPod this week. First up, a track that’s by no means new, it’s actually quite old, but a classic nonetheless.
ESG (Emerald, Sapphire and Gold) hail from South Bronx in New York City. Their works been sampled by everyone from Wu-Tang Clan to TLC to Gang Starr. This eerie little number is perfect for a haunting trip home during twilight.
Next up, a more contemporary piece of music from Leeds band Mr Beasley They played my live event Filthy Few Live! In October and rocked it.
Finally, Shake Aletti. Hailing from Sheffield, they’re a rising name on the scene getting lots of attention and playing
lots of excellent club nights around the UK. I’ve managed to catch them live too and they don’t disappoint. Expect to hear more!
What are you listening to this week? See you Friday for my round-up of the best new tracks in the electronic world.
