Yo yo, how are we all this second week of 2012? Hoping y’all are good and sticking to those, soon to be broken if they haven’t been already, resolutions. Spinforth here for your ears once again, welcoming you to Spinforth’s Weekly SoundCloud Scour #46.
Been having a ridiculously hectic and stressful week at my 9-5..6,7,8 (Tuuuune!) this week, so running even later the usual with The Scour. Very determined to get it published for you all tonight though, so having to keep this intro blurb short & sweet.
I don’t even really have time to thank any and everyone out there, who very kindly voted for The Hong Kong Ping Pong Club to win ‘Littlesouth & Twenty4Seven South West DJ’s of the Year 2011′..oh, actually that’s not entirely true..”atrulyfunkinmazing of you..THANKYOU!!”
Nor do I have any time whatsoever at all, to kindly ask whether you may be able to spare we 3 of HKPP a few more of your valuable minutes, and consider voting for us in the categories of ‘Best Small Event’ and ‘Best Radio Show’ (for ‘Beating The Crates’) in the 2012 Breakspoll Awards. We do fully appreciate that it’s a very big ask, and that filling in the form can be a bit of chore..but by all accounts we came VERY VERY close to winning the ‘small event’ title last year, missing out by just a handful of votes, so we’re secretly hoping you lovely lot may feel we have worked hard enough in 2011 to gain us those elusive extra votes. We’ve even made it nice n easy for you, by setting up a facebook event >>HERE<<, aaaand given you some ideas of who to consider in all the other categories. We promise to love all your balls forever and ever if we pull this off for 2012. So here’s me thanking and pleasing (..and begging a little bit!) for your votes in advance. Cheeeers!
Right, I didn’t have time for any of that! But I have just about had time to deliver another tasty Scour for you all again. A little shorter than some of my recent offerings, but still a mixed bag full of quality music to my ears as always, and hopefully worthy of a facebook ‘liking’, Scour word spreading, thumb or two from you!
Here we go..
If you have a tune that you would like considered for support via a forthcoming Scour, please email me at: firstname.lastname@example.org

So..I first introduced you all to the work and sounds of SkalliiWaggles back in my World Record Thumb Score Smashing Scour #41. Had a sneaky feeling back then he’d be one to watch for 2012. Sneaky feeling 100% confirmed via this awesome London Posse ‘Gangster Chronicle’ remix! Time for all to get involved faceboink ‘liking’ this big little skallii with the waggle right >>HERE<< ..thank you please!

Damn it! Guessing that’s a bit of a long shot!? So, let’s all just get our ears wrapped around this latest GRiZ monster instead.

First Scoured just last week, but, incase anyone foolishly wasn’t listening up..here he is again! More ace work (..to my ears at least, and hopefully a good few of your’s) from NoWa..errrm..and DJ Toast, again! Ahh..but I supported him up there somewhere already, and it’s officially against my own Scour rules to support someone twice in the same Scour, so..giving this one up to NoWa..and friend Ace collab work fellas! 155bpm

Wrapping up this week’s Scour (pre-curveball) with a very tidy n tasty tune..in a dubstep to dnb transition tool styleee. Omni Trio’s ‘Renegade Snares’ given a decent dose of top quality rerub action by Some DJ. No no, not literally ‘some DJ’..This one, that we all already know and love, right >>HERE<< (<< show him your best 'like' pleeease!).

Aaaaand finally, this week’s CURVEBALL! Probably one of my favourite ever Roots joints..taken from their brilliant (..and in my humble opinion, definitely best) 4th album ‘Things Fall Apart’. Edited and extended here by Mr Mick Collins-Gellar. Beeeeauuutiful tune! 82>>174bpm
