Once in a while you have to pay your local record store (Musik Hjørnet in Taastrup BIG UP!) a visit, I did that yesterday, and left with a small record collection.
Since it’s summer for real in Denmark, and I’ve been in the mood for Dancehall – well almost since the “R*A*W” event in august 2004, but especially since “Bikstok Røgsystem” spilled “Over stok og sten” – and I’ve been listening to Internet radio stations like Baby Ace Radio and Batanga Reggaeton, for the last couple of days I asked the clerk for some Hispanic Dancehall (aka. Reggaeton).
Well the clerk obviously knew something about the subject, so he found a small collection, but I noticed that he included a DefJamacian record, he clearly was a fan of hip-hop.
A lot of the Dancehall records on the market are far too mainstream for my taste, so we began discussing hip-hop in general, and I asked for some more experimental stuff, like MF Doom and Dangerdoom, and it turned out that Doom and Danger were among his favourites too!
A couple of hours later I left with this collection:
- Track 72 – Rockin’ “Dansk når det er bedst”
- Madlid – Shades Of Blue “Doesn’t really sound like anything else”
- Beastie Boys – Paul’s Boutique “Legendary but I only have a 12” and I “missed it””
- Various – DefJamaican “Dancehall and big hip/hop stars”
- Madlid – Blunted In The Bomb Shelter Mix by Madlib
- Various – Dancehall Nice Again 2004 “Well had to have some”
- Masta Ace – A Long Hot Summer “And I ordered a ticket for the Jam in Copenhagen”
- Queen Latifah – All Hail The Queen “YOU SAID IT. I LOVE YOU LATIFAH”
Thanks mate! My nano is maxing out!
