A handful of recs for y'all tonight. First up Bacoso has a rare Yusef Lateef session cut in 58 over here. Beautiful stuff, Lateef's blissed sax soars over seriously earthy percussion. Features a 'scraped ram's horn'. Damn that's right...
Four Tet's still on fire. Don’t sleep on his mix over at RA (log-in is a pain but free). Just heard about a site called Allez Allez over at Brownswood, which also has a couple of mixes by the prolific Mr Hebden, one here and the other on the main page, May 1st. Some other tasty looking mixes here too.
Always a few good mixes in the Brownswood Beatcave. For those of you like to go waaaaaaayyyy back check this doo wap etc mix from Marc-Ocho whose blog is here.
Sublime stuff from DJ Bwyse of Talking In Stereo with two installments of ‘Salty Disco’ on a chilled California vibe. Vol 2 is here and Vol 1 is here.
And the ever-unpredictable Closet Of Curiosities has got some North American birdsong recordings here. A samplehead’s delight, I'll bet!

My computer's been out of service for awhile now but it seems to be back in service (minus a few blips). The first mix I'm uploading for y'all today is called Woooden's Weirdos which started life as a selection of songs featuring spoken word but has mutated into a broader mix of weird and wonderful things, coming in at a nicely burnable 78'43. Hope you enjoy!
