... If You Hate Me Then F*** You

Turns out the album's out in the UK, finally, at the end of January. It's very good, if a little over familiar from all the previous singles. It is however, whatever some people might say, one of the best pop albums to come out from a UK artist for some time. I love it. Sov's "Love Me Or Hate Me" has been all over the media - no doubt helped by this video ...

All over MTV like the proverbial rash. I've also heard the song used as incidental music on, erm, Ugly Betty with the chorus replaced with "If you hate me then ... I hate you too". Noooooooooooooo - just total wrongness. Anyway ... any excuse for a repost in my book. FU2 is an alternative take on the original "Love Me Or Hate Me", and you can grab it below.

To be honest I've been a little disappointed with the official remixes, with the notable exception of the new Missy Elliot version: new rhymes from Missy Elliot, new rhymes from Sov ... how can I resist. A bit of a large one with a big sample from a rave classic. Have an FU2 remix on me ...

Please go and buy the original though (out on January 29th) ... it's very good and I'd love Sov to have a top ten hit on her own steam for once.

Mash Up Da Place

This is the sound of the old skool breaks of Sonz Of A Loop Da Loop Era meeting the nu-skool breaks of Coburn. It's not big, it's not clever but watch yer bassbins I'm tellin' ya. And that's what's the most important thing really. The kind of stuff I like to play out ... speaking of which...

Nottingham's Ambush at The Social on Thursday 25th January (see the flyer down below ...) and Newcastle's Rouge Pulp at The World Headquarters on Tuesday 30th January. Don't forget there's also the next of Aberdeen's Kitsch Bitch nights is on Sunday January 28th also. Yeah .... busy.

No Time For The F**king Haters

Lil' Kim really has quite a way with words. Filthy, really, but good fun nonetheless. It's just a brag-rap over some fun breaks courtsey of the magnificent 30Hz.

January English gig dates coming soon....
