  • Binky Griptite (guitarist/emcee from the Dap Kings) and the Mellomatics just put out a new Christmas funk 45. "Stone Soul Christmas" I believe is what it's called, it's available from the DapTone website, with a sound clip.

    Besides the usual "Raindeer Runners - Pull My Sled" and the like I copped some xmas joints in the past year:

    Isaac Clark - Santa Claus Is Coming To Town (Seven B)[/b]
    Yup, on SevenB. I had higher hopes for this, bought it without even hearing it on an auction. Mildly disappointed, but good for the odd xmas mix.

    Akim & The Teddy Van Production Comp - Santa Claus Is A Black Man (Simtone)[/b]
    CLASSIC, finally I got this on 45.

    Johnny and Jon - Christmas In Vietnam (Jewel)[/b]
    Bluesy thing. I dig it.


    Lessee, also in the past year, I have been digging on some xmas blues tracks:

    Lightnin Hopkins - Merry Christmas
    Lightnin Hopkins - Happy New Year
    Sonny Boy Williamson - Santa Claus

    Most underappreciated xmas track I have:

    Solomon Burke - Presents for Christmas[/b]
    "I'm even fat enough to be the worlds biggest Santa Claus..."

    Oddball Christmas joints:

    Dan The Automator - Jingle Bells (Automator Remix)
    Coldcut - Christmas Break
    Jon Spencer Blues Explosion - High Gear


    Club Xmas:

    69 Boyz - What You Want For Christmas
    "Fiiiiiiiive Freeeesh Gooooold Chaaaaaains"

    Eazy E - Merry Muthafukin Xmas

    Last Xmas i DJed in a great club here in Amsterdam 'the Sugar Factory' James passed the night before and the gig turned into an impromptu James Brown tribute.

    This track absolutely tore the roof off the place and was rewound more than once.



    does not even begin to describe.

    YOU NEED THIS IN YOUR LIFE.

    No, i'm Alister Johnson .. I know Aaron though, really nice guy . Just met him last month at IF Records in London , check for his new record coming out on BBE early next year.

    And yea , the flip side is the Nina remix I did.

    it was available on Fat City records website but now it says out of stock..... maybe somehwhere else online has it, but i'm not sure where.

    cheers
