Five on Friday! 17th November 2006

From now on every Friday I'm gonna post some classic music moments from Youtube for your listening pleasure-i'll also throw in one new tune which is big at the moment!

Curtis Mayfield-"Keep On Keepin On"
The voice, the vibe, the positivity

Marvin Gaye & Tammi Terrell - "Ain't no mountain high enough"
What can I say still sends shivers down my spine and I still play it nearly every Saturday night!

Minnie Riperton-"Reasons"
My favourite female vocalist besides Aretha

Zhane-"Hey Mr.DJ"
The Ultimate Friday night song from 1994 a very important record in my music career

A Tribe Called Quest-"Electric Relaxation"
Another monster track that I still play my favorite hip-hop crew of them all

Tune of the week!

Gnarls Barkley "Who Cares"
Been around for ages but who cares? Another big tune from DangerMouse and Cee-Lo!

Man, that Tribe track... ouch... here I am nursing a very broken heart and that track just makes me shiver... you just can't beat the Tribe!

I like that Gnarls Barkley track as well.

As for the older tracks, not really my scene.

    I'm a DJ from Cork in Ireland. I work with RedFM, presenting Red Drive, The Hitlist and my specialist show, Black on Red. I'm probably best known for being one of the main hip-hop/soul DJ's in Cork and Ireland. I've been DJing in Cork since the early 90's in legendary clubnights such as Sweat in Sir Henrys, Mor Disco, Free La Funk, Yo Latino and also Jam and Jam Junior at the Savoy and the Pavilion. I've also held down long term residencies at clubs around Ireland such as Brown Sugar at the Kitchen in Dublin, U-Turn at Ri Ra in Dublin, Jazz Juice at the GPO in Galway, Thompson Garage in Belfast, the Soul Clinic, Dee-Bop, Meltdown and Mo Bounce in Limerick and i've played abroad in the United States and the U.K. on numerous occasions. I also write a music column for the Evening Echo and i'm a regular contributor to the U.K.'s Blues and Soul, the longest running black music magazine in the world. These days i run the Pavilion, a music venue in Cork, which hosts my Jam night every few Fridays also you can catch me at
