Crusty Balkan action from Silly Tang opens proceedings today, with Mad Mation taking us from dancehall to deep house and Suspect Packages finishing up with some classic UK Hip Hop.

Silly Tang

Some wicked Balkan bounciness from Bristol’s sillytang (who you can catch me playing alongside in Bristol in June), avoiding too many tech-house/electro-swing cliches in favour of traveller skank vibes… maybe a tiny bit rough around the edges in places but you know what, it suits this music 🙂 The kind of hardcore breaks -> Ederlezi mix towards the end is epic.

Suspect Packages

Old skool UK hip hop isn’t something one hears a great deal of / about, so I thoroughly enjoyed checking this out, and after reading the bizarre & incoherent critique in the comments thought I should show it some love 🙂
