Episode 7 of Cookie-Dough Radio Podcast with Ste & Terser
Part 1 – Eclectic / Alternative
We get things rolling with Joe Cocker’s heavily sampled track ‘Woman to Woman’, which has featured on various 80s and 90s hip hop tracks and in Grand Theft Auto. This powerful bass driven funk / blues track sets the scene as we groove through the next two tracks ‘Love (Your Pain Goes Deep – Apple Scruffs Edit)’ by Frankie Beverly and a cover of the Bill Withers classic by Madelaine ‘Who is She and What is She to You’. We finish the section in style with the sublime jazz infused track ‘Day Like This’ by legendary Detroit producer Theo Parrish and the Master Drummer of Afrobeat Tony Allen.
This Afrobeat inspired track leaves a rhythmic percussive echo that can be felt in section 2, as we mix and serve up beats and rhythms in 16 bar measures. With flavours from Heswall, the Wirral to Long Island, New York, we will have you foot tapping, head nodding and reminiscing all at the same time as we spin classic hip-hop from De La Soul and Jazzy Jeff along with Henry Greenwood’s re-work of ‘Buffalo Stance’ by Neneh Cherry.
Section 3 is a jamboree of sounds, as we pick up the pace with the deep and raw funk of Preston Love’s ‘Cissy Popcorn’, moodily boogieing our way through to some shifted snares and breakbeats, as we end the eclectic half of the show with Tom & Jerry’s (4Hero to some of our younger listeners) jungle banger ‘Maximum Style’ and Calibre’s quality liquid funk rework of ‘Refusal’ by Zero T.
Part 2 – House Mix
The house section kicks off with the slowed down and soulful beat-down swagger of ‘More of those Moments’ by Canadian producer The Mole. We quickly pick the tempo up with the chugging beat and stabbing horns of ‘Forever in Their Debt’ by The Revenge followed by the aptly named ‘Boompty Boomp Theme’ by Mr. Derrick L Carter.
Section 2 of the house mix proceeds with the soulful house groover by Norma Jean Bell ‘I’m the Baddest Bitch’ (Moodymann remix) which of course samples the sublime 1978 track ‘Sweet Tears’ by Roy Ayers…Ooooft! Following that things are brought up-to date with the latest release from the house label of the moment Local Talk with the Candle Coast EP by Crackazat. And wrapping the section up is some deep and bouncy house with Kris Wadsworth’s interpretation of ‘Ruby Likes Dubstep’ by Scottish producer HiRO.
We take you back to 1987 in Section 3 with the legendary Trax Records Chicago house anthem ‘Baby Wants to Ride’ by the ‘Godfather of House’ Frankie Knuckles. Following that we slip in some filth from the brand new eagerly awaited self-named Moodymann album ‘Kenny Dixon Jnr’. As always we finish the show on a ‘Cookie-Dough Classic’ and this time we go back to Chicago, 1986 with the house music classic ‘Love Can’t Turn Around’ by Farley ‘Jackmaster’ Funk feat. Daryl Pandy.
