Happy Scourday (..and almost Easter) folks! Sir Spinforth of Scourshire (pictured above..nice one John!) back once again, for all of your ears pleasure, and welcoming you all to Spinforth’s Weekly SoundCloud Scour #55.
Thanks to a visit to the dentist this morning..which has left me £84.00 even skinter, lacking one tooth, aaaaand under strict instruction not to smoke any rollies for 24hrs, I’m having had to keep my blurb writing to an absolute minimum this week. The £84.00 and lack of a tooth I can just about cope with..but smoke free Scouring is proving to be a form of modern day torture. The sooner I finish the sooner I can sleep for 12 hours straight, and wake up to a big blinner (breakfastlunchanddinner) accompanying fat one!
Still had time to Scour up a feast of tasty FREE tunes here for you all though..no fewer than 23 of them to be precise, including 4 EXCLUSIVES. Have purposely dished up a few extra because there’s a fairly good chance, due to other commitments, I may be requiring a week off my Scour duties next week. Apologies in advance if this prediction comes true. Rest assured..deliver another generous show of your Scour word spreading thumbs, and I’ll be back before you’ve even missed me!
Biggest of UPs to all who’ve made it through to this weeks final cut. Some serious competition for limited(ish) places again this week, but this little big lot here, for various reasons, just about came out top..to my ears at least.
Until next Scour..so let the thumbs begin!
P.S. ‘Like’ what I do? Please hook up with my Facebook Page via the button below..
If you have a tune that you would like considered for support via a forthcoming Scour, please send via email at: firstname.lastname@example.org, or share to my SoundCloud Dropbox.
No beating round bushes this week, speed intro blurbing all the way, aaand, whether you’re ears are ready n warmed up or not, we’re going in hard n glitchy! Opening up this week’s Scour with this groover from Sir Ewan Hoozami. Hell yes bud, you didn’t even need to ask, definite Scour fodder right here!

Last supported fifty Scours ago (via Scour #5..blimey!) time to welcome back Odjbox to The Scour. So..this is rather massive..sounding like you’ve come a long long way in fifty Scours dude! Donation or free download link available via the ‘Buy This Track’ button. 87bpm ▼
Latest re-glitched fire from Canada’s awesome Defunk next! Wicked work here AGAIN dude! Can’t wait to hear what’s coming next! 96bpm ▼
Sent through to me at pretty much the exact same time I hit the publish button on last weeks Scour #54, but undoubtedly waaaaay too good to be leaving out just because it’s a week young already. Canada’s DJ Soo is back up in The Scour! Oooh look..just 18 more Facebook Fan Page ‘likes’ required for his 2000th! Off x18 of you pop ASAP please! 97bpm ▼
First of this weeks freshly Scoured up Clouds. Introducing the work of Greece’s S Strong to all your ears! Really tasty tune here bud..so much ace music coming outta Greece! Big tip of the cap to my main man Funkanizer for the live bass and mastering up in here too. Welcome to my Scour dude! 97bpm ▼
Been trying really really hard to fit DJ Maars into the last couple of Scours. Would be both rude and wrong of me to delay my supporting of his work and Cloud any longer. Lots of you probably already found this gem for yourselves..but here it is for all those who haven’t. Fully aced it with this one dude..welcoming you to my Scour too! 100bpm ▼
SCOUR #55 EXCLUSIVE #1: WTF..again!! I still haven’t decided what to call his 1st four Scour appearances in a row yet..and now here’s J-Sound‘s number five!! Pretty much running out of complimentary words for him and his work, or at least I need to save some for next Scour. For this week, let’s just say..’real nice organ bro!’..you playing it LIVE I hear right here..rad! BigUPs yet again for the EXCLUSIVE! Now I’m giving two weeks to pull that secret plan A out of your sleeve..get on it!

Bristol’s Howla‘s back! BIG FUNKIN’ TIME!! I’m astonished more of you haven’t spied and grabbed this bomb already, after introducing him to all your ears only two Scours ago via Scour #53!

Undoubtedly one to keep watching with plenty more Howla bombs dropping ‘somewhere’ soon! 101bpm ▼
Just incase anyone has been sleeping for the last few days..Gramatik released a brand new EP earlier this week. It’s exceedingly awesome and this here is ‘probably’ my favorite joint off of it.

SCOUR #55 EXCLUSIVE #2: Very very happy to be welcoming Bristol’s almighty Beat Dweebs back to my Scour. Fourth time Scoured and very kindly submitted as a Scour EXCLUSIVE.

Everyone else, before you get involved in the download, how about showing him some Facebook Fan Page love first please. There’s this Scourumor™ going about that you could miss out on a forthcoming FREE Beat Dweebs EP if you don’t!! Done? Sweeeet! So now you’re very welcome to get involved in the >>100% SCOUR EXCLUSIVE DOWNLOAD LINK RIGHT HERE<< 104bpm ▼
Hang about..WTF is this!? Moombah Scoured two weeks in a row!! No no no, don’t be silly..as if that’s ever going to happen. This just here, by Hungary’s Kovary, is definitely Nu-Jump-Up..ahton, which as you can all hear is completely different..and definitely allowed. Phew..thank goodness for that! Big. Missing SoundCloud download button available >>HERE<< 110bpm ▼
Right, enough of that for my ears..time to bring back the funk! This here from Scour debutant Late Knight brings it back, and then some! Welcome to The Scour dude! Alternative download link requested/available in track description. 110bpm ▼
More funk? Alrighty then..you ask for it, and Afro Q Ben will exceptionally tastily deliver it! Now all you lot gotta do is feel it..the same way I did when this landed in my inbox this week! So so so so good..cheers for sharing dude, and..welcome to The Scour! 112bpm ▼
Give it up to the funk..just once more? Alright then, allow Q-Tip, Bernard Wright and Astrosnooze to do just that, for you. Lush. 114bpm ▼
SCOUR #55 EXCLUSIVE #3 (NOW OPEN!): Ben & Lex‘s ‘Ruffnecks’ given a healthy dose of Hidden Riddim remix treatment next. Opening up and download of this has been very kindly synchronized with Scourday..yup, yup, of course by request! BUT..only 100 downloads available from Hidden Riddim SoundCloud. No one shall ever be found missing out on the download of a Scoured track though (..it’s in the rules!), so..as soon as those 100 have been snapped up you’ll exclusively be able to download via this >>100% SCOUR EXCLUSIVE DOWNLOAD LINK RIGHT HERE<<. Nice one for this little scratch back Scour deal buddy..and proper rad remix too! 115bpm ▼
Tasty bit of mashup work from, another Scour debutant, Ocelus here. My ears were somewhat surprised when it turned out that how well this works. For those loving the instrumental, it’s the old school Hong Kong Ping Pong secret weapon by Romania’s brilliant Mahala Raï Banda, that can be (..and in fact definitely should be if you’re downloading this mashup) purchased >>HERE<<. Nice work on this one bud..welcome to The Scour! 120bpm ▼
Hmmm..where next? Aha! Perfect opportunity to squeeze in some electro ska from Germany’s Wolfgang Lohr I reckon! (see Luc..can take a while but I do get everyone’s messages sooner or later! BigUps for the pointer bud..and for the Scour supporting Wosson Falmouth posts). Genius remix of The Maytals ’54/46 That’s My Number’ that has seen plenty of deserved commeent love already..time we all showed it some Scour love fo sho! 124bpm ▼
Alriiiiight..time to start winding this Scour
up..errmm.. down..errmm definitely up..fook it..down briefly, and the straight back up..D’n'B styleee!! All that, and more, taken care of brilliantly here by P.O.D.G.E. Welcome back bro..I think you may have just delivered my favorite of yours so far..by a gurt big Westcountry mile! Alternative download link available via Facebook Fan Page/’Buy This Track’ button. 85>>170bpm ▼
No idea how, or why, Spain’s Ricky Tuff has evaded a right good Scouring for over a year!! Time to set that straight immediately. Free download of the full version of this beauty available via the Ricky Tuff Facebook Fan Page. 178bpm ▼
And that delivers us purrrfectly to the penultimate tune of this week’s Scour, Lewd Behavior‘s banging D’n'B remix of Gold Dust. So that’s a quality version for every possible set scenario sorted then. Wicked work here fella, bet this was your plan all along eh!? 178bpm ▼
Aaaaand finally, this week’s SCOUR #55 EXCLUSIVE CURVEBALL! Two week’s on the trot in the curveball position doesn’t happen very ever!! Well it does starting now, when you’re as rad as making funktastic remixes as James DB! If you thought last week’s ‘Notorious B.I.G – Nasty Boy (James DBs Make It Funky Remix)’ was bloody good (still available for download via his Facbook Fan Page), you’d be 100% correct, BUT..I’m thinking this brand spankin’ new joint is even better. Very very kindly offered, for it’s 1st week of release, via this >>100% SCOUR EXCLUSIVE PROMO DOWNLOAD LINK RIGHT HERE<<. Pleeease EVERYBODY..if you download this exclusive, your courteous thank you ‘like’ is insisted upon over >>HERE<< immediately, and some comment love up on his player would of course be warmly welcomed too! BigUps in advance to all who do do..and well done, you’ve just completed your 55th Scour, hoping you all dug!
