Episode 6 of Cookie-Dough Radio Show Podcast with Ste & Terser
Part 1 – Eclectic / Alternative
We kick things off with ‘Waiting for the Man’ by the late great Lou Reed who sadly passed away last month. We take things up a notch with the Whiskey Baron’s edit of ‘Opposite People’ by the Godfather of Afrobeat Mr. Fela Kuti followed by the weird and twisted electronic afro sounds of ‘New Track’ by Francis Bebey. Wrapping the section off with a liquid funk banger we slip in ‘If We Ever’ and that is taken from High Contrast’s 2007 album ‘Tough Guys Don’t Dance’.
Section 2 is an 80s edit-fest starting with Henry Greenwood’s edit of the New Jack Swing classic ‘Don’t Be Cruel’ by Bobby Brown. This is followed by the heavy stomping Electro-Boogie beat and infectious vocals of Tony John’s re-rub of ‘Try it Out’ by Canadian Disco legend Ginno Soccio and rounding section 2 off we have an exclusive from Late Nite Tuff Guy’s with his edit of the 1983 track ‘I’m Only Shootin’ Love’ by Dutch band the Time Bandits.
The smooth, deep and soulful hip-hop sounds of ‘UMI Says’ by Brooklyn’s Mos Def take you in the final section of the alternative mix. Crossing ‘the Pond’ but keeping it hip-hop we supply a masterclass in the art of rhyme with ‘Slicker than Average’ by Manchester 9 piece The Mouse Outfit. Wrapping things up we take you to the dancehalls of Jamaica with ‘Bandelero’ by Pinchers and ‘Interface’ by the ‘Dub-Master’ himself Prince Jammy.
Part 2 – House Mix
The house section gets going with two ‘beat down’ joints from producers of the moment, Melbourne Deepcast head honcho Andy Hart and German producer Max Graef. The warm chords and bumping beats of ‘Dem Young Jabronis’ sets the scene and ass shaking fidgety grooves ‘Jungle’ keeps things rolling along nicely. The section finishes off some smooth deep house from Japanese producer Kez YM with a track called ‘Late Night Remedy’.
Section 2 of the house mix keeps things deep with the Quintessentials’ release ‘On Your Mind’ by Italian producer Nicholas. This is followed by some sleazy beats from Chicago legend Cajmere with ‘Let’s Dance’ and a UK garage tinged track ‘What You Waitin’ For’ (Scott Diaz Onwards Dub) by Incognito vocalist Tony Momrelle.
The third and final section of the house mix takes the tempo up a notch with the disco house sounds of ‘So Tight’ by DJ Fudge & Kiko Navarro. Following this we slip in the melodic ‘Dancing with your Heart’ by Huxley & Daniel Solar. And as always we finish the show with a ‘Cookie-Dough Classic’ and this time it’s the sublime Frankie Knuckles mix of ‘The Pressure’ by Sounds of Blackness. Oooft!
