Ghettoboys and Hoodgirls! It’s Tim Turbo Thursday (two days after N.W.A. day)!
After I did an exclusive blend for Ghetto Palms last week, The Fader’s very own Eddie Stats (grower and discoverer of the Ghetto Palm itself) created today´s Tim Turbo Thursday. He brings something back into being, what a few guys of my ghettokids-followship have been missing lately: the Dancehall vibe.
Eddie sticked together something like the solid gold hits of the last Ghetto Palms issues plus all this hipster hype gangster stuff from The Fader blog. A bunch of Busys and Mavados plus that exclusiv DJ Oro11 Cumbia refix plus the brand new Skull Riddim. He wrote:
“The other main note is that this was recorded in true Ghetto Palms conditions: Serato and 2 beat up 1200s with loosey pitch control into final vinyl. One live take, no editing, no effects, no knob on the fader, no class.” (but style) “In fact my battle scarred Ortofons was giving a signal so dirty, even after being cleaned with the finest Cabana cachaca that Brazil could export, I had to borrow DJ Rekha’s needles to record.”
Big up DJ Rehka for his needles an thanks to Eddie for his mix. Smell you next week, ghettokids.
