The trend of Autotune has not struck a like-able chord with me at all. I fuggin’ hate it with a passion. As soon as a track kicks in and that sound drifts up to my ears that’s it, OFF, change the channel, in a fraction of a fraction of a second. I must however, delve further into the recent post by /Rupture on how the use of Autotune in the Maghreb circuit is much different than that in the contemporary field that is occupied by everybody from Lil Wayne, Yeezy, etc. Anyway, Dubterror have a new an EP out soon, and they use AT on the vocals of Horace Andy, and I think because he can sing, it’s not annoying me like AT usually does.

Greetings from Carnaval-drunk Santa Cruz de Tenerife. The fiesta that is Carnaval in Santa Cruz is coming to an end, mind you,only to spring up in other parts of the island. Santa Cruz is the biggest open toilet at this time. While moving to the battling sounds of murga's in one earhole and DJ Fernando Daxta in the other, the stench of a weekend of us pissing on any available space took over...goddam!
Some amazing costumes were to be witnessed however.
This week's program doesn't reflect Carnaval at all, not one iota...sorry, sick of hearing Salsa!
It's a bit loaded with El-P/Co.Flo material for some reason. I had to play 'Fuck the Law' from the WeAreAllGoingToBurnInHellMeggaMixx2 release 'cos of the killa line:
Former Co.Flow deckwizard, Mr. Len also shows up behind the boards for Kice of Course.
Speaking of 'of course'...of course I had to check out the link to Nickelus F track featuring Portishead. Well, it's not featuring, he raps over a couple of their tracks....Cowboys and Roads.
For awhile I had a habit of listening to Nubian Minds' "Black Science" as a wind down to the sonic day. It has the some of the same subtle Techno sensibilities that Martyn is running ahead with at the moment.
Hey, where the females at?
Sorry for the lack of representation ladies....step forward Voice. Over a piano laden jazz step of a beat, Voice brings humour and wit to the situation of a rapper trying to make ends meet.

Fun-da-mental is the group I perform with. I dj solo or with Aki/Fun-da-mental Former DJ partner of DJ Overhaul, the most creative motherfucker behind two turntables and cd players I've ever had the pleasure of witnessing. We also used FX units, guitar pedals delays, tapes etc. Now he's a father, and I have moved to an island in the Atlantic Ocean. They say it's Spain, but it's much closer to Senegal than to Madrid, go figure. While Fun-da-mental's Aki finishes his film/documentary work, I am producing a solo stroke collaborative record. Name to be decided, but I think I will use King L Man. Have recently completed remixes for Indigenous Resistance featuring Deeder Zaman, the original vocalist of Asian Dub Foundation, and also done a remix of a tune by the Mighty Zulu Nation. It will be published soon.
