Too Hip To Be Square 2nd Anniversary

Click for Facebook event

After a brief hiatus, this coming Saturday 3rd December I make a return to hosting my Too Hip To Be Square night but this time at The Westbury, West London. It's been two years since I started the night dedicated to playing both my guests and my own favorite records of the past 5 decades.

So, to celebrate I've decided to invite some previous guests back to relive the good times. Please be upstanding, and be prepared to throw a shape or two, to the sounds of Stu Streetlife and Jim Sharp. For full details and to RSVP hit up the Facebook Event.

To get you in the mood, here's a 5 minute mini mix I recently put together exploring the eclectic sounds we play on the night.

Need Moar

After stumbling across DJ Moar's Soundcloud earlier I think this Parisian deserves some extra credit. His Myspace claims he was a "Breaker in 1982, Tagger in 1989, Mc in 1993, Beatmaker Since 1996, Dj Since 2000, Co-owner & A&R of Trad Vibe Records since 2005..." other than that I'm pretty new to his music. But his edits, sometimes a simple manipulation of the original, others a full blown break apart and rebuild, speak for themselves. Check out his Soundcloud for more.

Rise And Hypnotize

It's been a busy month here at OD HQ, but a bit slow on the music side of things. Yet again Jim Sharp is passing through with another smart edit. This time he's tackled The Notorious B.I.G. and added the extended original sample from Herb Alperts track Rise.

If you'd prefer not to hear Biggie's vocals then how about this funked up retouch of the original from DJ Moar. Check out his Soundcloud for more.
