Hi, I’m back! Back from a demanding, challenging, exhausting, arduous wearing but also refreshing walking trip to the green valleys and mountains of El Andaluz and the city of Grenada. My mind is totally empty now and ready for some new challenges in a new year because I’m also one year older… and deeper in debt.
I had quite some surprise waiting for me when I got back home... a great Coldcut concert as a birthday present on Saturday (thanx Ann!). I’ve been a long term fan of Coldcut ever since they redefined the term ‘remix’ with their classic rendition of Erik B & Rakim’s Paid in Full ‘mashed-up’ with Ofra Haza and Mantronix’s Pump up the volume and they still haven't lost their edge. As a temporarily memorial for this memorable concert I've added some old-time favourites and a couple of tracks from their new album Sound Mirrors.
Coldcut – Timber
Coldcut – Atomic Moog (tha bomb)
Coldcut – Atomic Moog 2000
Coldcut – More Beats and Pieces
Coldcut feat. Jon Spencer & Mike Ladd - Everything Is Under Control
Coldcut feat. Roots Manuva - True Skool
Erik B. & Rakim - Paid In Full (Coldcut Remix)
I saw some cameras flying about at the concert so after a quick look on the internet I found some footage from it on YOUTUBE. If you haven’t heard of YOUTUBE before this is your chance to find out what this great site is all about. Basically it’s a system to share your videos and films.
