The KLF – Build a fire

This is a seminal early 90’s track from Acid House pioneers The KLF. What I love about it are the vocals, both the strong male Scottish accent and the soulful female. The whole track has a very mellow vibe, perfect for a relaxed Saturday afternoon.

It serves as an interesting counterbalance to this number from the same era that might be more appropriate later on!



Warren G featuring Nate Dogg – Regulate

This is pure cheese, but great at the same time. It features an awesome, random sample for a gangster rapper to have used! G-Funk meets blue-eyed soul.

I have wanted to post it for a while since being reminded of it by a bouncer while waiting in a long line to get into a club in Camden. My peeps and I were wavering about whether to persevere or try another club so we decided to consult him:

Me: What kind of music are they playing tonight guv?
Bouncer: All sorts
Me: Such as?
Bouncer: Old School hip hop. Y’know Nate Dogg – Regulate, tings like dat. Who wouldn’t want to listen to that?
Me: Say no more

He really went bold on that one. Luckily for him he judged his crowd perfectly.

In other news, I had a big night. Tom Ravenscroft, my DJ hero (from whom I have mined many tracks for this very blog) name checked me and played a song I had sent in on his show tonight. I nearly fainted when I heard it!
