Happy happy Scourday™ Ping Pongers & Ghetto Funkers! Welcome, six months and a grand total of 206!!! scoured tunes later, to Spinforth’s Weekly SoundCloud Scour #26!
Blimey, feels like I started this Scour gig just yesterday, but no..it really has been six whole months (give or take a failed week or two) since I kicked off this little ol blog thing of mine with Scour #1..and luckily for all your G’Funkin ears, I STILL haven’t pulled, so, here I am once again, bringing you..my this weeks cream of the SoundCloud crop.
Running very late this week, so gotta keep the blog blurb as short and sweet as possible, but just wanted to shout out a HUUUUUUUMONGOUUUUS thank you to every single one of you who have followed the Scour over the last 6 months. I really have been overwhelmed by all your kind comments, continued support, and of course, the things I love the most (because they really help spread my Scour word)…all your tiny little blue faceboinking thumbs!! BigUP’s to you all for spreading the Scour love,..no way did I ever expect this to blow up the way it has, and it really is all down to you guys that I keep on, keepin on, doing what I do. Here’s to another 6 months of me being crap at finding myself a quality misses! Errr..did I really just say that!?
So, movin on..seems I’ve earnt myself an aptly timed, and very generous, Scour prize this week, courtesy of The Funk From The Trunk crew. Anyone heading to Boomtown Fair next weekend? Well..those who are should definitely come and check out their ‘Funkington Manor’ stage, EVERY night, from 21:00-03:00..because..it’s right here, via a very very kindly offered guest slot (thanks again fellas!), that you’ll find (amongst many high quality others) some DJ named Spinforth representing The Hong Kong Ping Pong Club (get the funk in!!) in a Ghetto Funk party starting styleee!! Not sure of my set time (or night) just yet, but..come and check out this party tent at every opportunity you get please..I guarantee it’s the place to be, and with your help, it’s gonna go right off!
Okaaay..that’s all I got time for this week folks. Watch out, and be sure to raise your thumbs for the legend that is Fat Harry, who’ll be stepping up to the Scour for us all in my Boomtown shaped absence next week. Until then..here’s another Scourful™ of tasty free tunes for y’all!
If you have a tune that you’d like considered for support in forthcoming scours, please email me at: firstname.lastname@example.org
Warming up this weeks Scour..we welcome back Mr Sam Redmore, with another of his genius and gorgeous remixes. Big things a gwarnin for Sam right now, with support for his tunes from BBC Radio’s Craig Charles and Gilles Peterson..and of course my, slightly less acclaimed, funk hoarding squirrely self! If you’re ever out n about in the Birmingham area on a Friday night (any/every Friday night!), I’d recommend getting yourself to The Bull’s Head in Moseley, where you’ll find Sam spinning gems like these live, at his weekly gig night ‘Freestyle‘! Alternative download available in track description. 94bpm ▼

Continuing on the warm up tip..tight mashup from Automatic-Reaction right here; The Cure meets..Eric B & Rakim, of all people. Works surprisingly well though. 95bpm ▼
Lovecats Got Soul (MF Rex edit) by automatic-reaction
Next up my favourite of a 2 part James Brown mix by DJ Format, previously only available on limited wax (yeah I do!), as far as I’m aware. Part 1 is pretty tasty too, and also downloadable from his Cloud, or just clicky that there direct link that you’ve just skipped past. 99bpm ▼
