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!

A Ghetto Hour 039: Brazil

Back from a little trip to Brazil with some light diggin in Rio and Sao Paulo I’m happy to have a mix of new treats. With little knowledge of Brazillian music its not too deep or rare but an good entry level mix of Soul, Boogie and a few more traditional bits. I’m off to look for more!

A Ghetto Hour 038: R&B 16

This mix is well late! It’s a mix of my favourite R&B (and a hip hop and kind of dancehall track) from 2016. It’s been sitting around since December so has lost some relevance and currentness, but its timeless. Most of the mixes on the website are full of songs form the 70’s, so its fresh! With two tracks from both Joyce Wrice and Ella Mai two of my current favourites and the likes of Anthony Hamilton and Anderson .Paak, its a whole load of heat!!!
