A Ghetto Hour 051: The Gift of Reggae Covers

We all know theres no better way to celebrate Christmas than a reggae cover of Cher or Whitney Huston! So as my gift to the world this year I’ve compiled some of my favourites. I refuse to use the word cheesy but alongside some more thoughtful covers there are plenty of more accessible ones, its Christmas Sanchez singing Briteny Spears makes perfect sense! Be nice to each other and enjoy this no holes bared reggae covers mix!

A Ghetto Hour 050: Cam H & Matt Doggs at the Red Light, Toronto

Earlier this year in June I spent a very enjoyable evening with Cam H in a back room of a small whisky bar in Toronto playing records and getting real loose. We played a whole load of Modern Soul, Boogie, Lovers Rock, and Street Soul as you’d expect, also a few treats from further afield. A nice long mix to remind us of summer as the weather gets progressively shitter in both London and Toronto. Please excuse the few drunken mixes and that usual business, enjoy!

A Ghetto Hour 048: Sunlight Soul & Gospel

It’s been a good few moths since the last mix but with plenty of time digging and loads of new records here’s the first new mix to ease us in to summer. A good mix of classic soul, some stripped back gospel and a few up tempo dancers. Next up is For Tropical Souls 3, perfect for when/if summer really gets going. Enjoy and share with your loved ones!

A Ghetto Hour 047: Diga Paz! Brazil & Uruguay

Back from a trip to Brazil and Uruguay over Christmas heres a mix complied from some of my finds form the few days digging. Some Brazilian rare groove, samba, Uruguayan folk, Cuban Jazz and a great track form Nicaragua. Diga Paz means Say Peace in Portuguese, don’t ask me why but it was the catch phrase of the holiday and now the title of this mix, Enjoy!

Guest Mix 013: Cam Hildebrandt

After a week long blind DJ date in the summer me and Cam had found some serious common ground. Many hours of Lover Rock, Street Soul and Slow Jams later I asked for a guest mix. Cam delivered an ever eclectic mix of genre crossing, lo fi, hard to find gems and some up front dance floor classics. A huge thanks to him, please check out all his other quality mixes on Mixcloud.

A Ghetto Hour 045: New York to New Orleans

This mix is compiled from records bought in New York and New Orleans after a recent trip. Theres a good few records form artisits from each city and a load from in between. As always when buying in the states I’ve picked up a load of Gospel and Soul. Theres also a few more recent tracks but all in the same vain. Get blessed and enjoy!

A Ghetto Hour 044: Big DP & Matt Doggs get Outernational

Once again me and the Big DP got together and recorded a joyful evening of music. This time we got worldly, 3 hours of no western music. Staring in Japan we went all over Africa to Brazil, Columbia, Barbados, Trinidad, The Virgin Islands, Eastern Europe and more. Some classics some rare maybe some questionable, it was a long evening. Come get Outernational with us!
