Music Monday: July Week 4

Once a week we give you a chance to delve into our music collections at TDS HQ with our Music Monday feature. This week features Madlib, Wu-Tang, Kraftwerk and El-B.

01. Madlib – The Payback

“Since the great weather has been continuing I’ve been searching out for some more vibrant music and Madlib’s ‘The Beat Konducta Vol. 1-2: Movie Scenes has been my go to album this week.” – Chris

02. Ghostface Killah – The Faster Blade feat. Raekwon

“Been having a bit of a Wu Tang Clan week. Off my favourite hip hop album of all time, Ghostface and Raekwon, superb.” – Grizzle

03. Gza – Breaker Breaker

“My second favourite Shaolin monk, Gza, this beat is crazy. gza is truly a genius.” – Grizzle

04. Kraftwerk – Tour De France

“Truly revolutionary. Kraftwerk really are the fathers of electronic music. I find it hard to imagine what it must have been like to hear this when it was first released.” – Luke

05. Joey Bada$$ – 95 Til Infinity

“Joey for me is the best of the new school hip hop artists. His back to basics NY style paired with his young energy is what the world of hip hop was lacking. This track displays his aforementioned skills in a big way.” – Luke


“I’m a big fan of this young trio from Canada. I’m also deeply envious of their musical talents. This is their latest piece of work and having FINALLY seen them live at Lovebox over the weekend, I had to include something of theirs in this week’s MM. You can also download this tune for free on their website.” – Alex

07. Fat Freddy’s Drop – The Big BW (Zulu 122 Edit)

“My boy Zulu has created this remix of Fat Freddy’s Drop (who are great in their own right) and I’ve had it on loop all week. Gave it a spin over the weekend as well and it’s one of those tunes that will always get a good response.” – Alex

08. El-B – Amazon

“I had the absolute pleasure of watching El-B rip up the intimate Dance Tunnel for 2 hours at COMM•UNE last week and when he dropped this tune I well and truly lost my shit. To say his beats back in the day were important to all UK dance music movements would be an understatement. This guy was and still is a hero.” – Alex
