Hailing from the outskirts of Tokyo, a sextet by the name of “Mountain Mocha Kilimanjaro” are fast becoming a major force on the Jazz/Funk scene.

Megan Washington – You might know her from the ‘Tru Thoughts’ label, she has done work with the Bamboos – As above! and Lanu in the past.  This morning I heard her name mentioned on 6 music – it appears she is making efforts to break the UK and the US at least thats what it said on her Vimeo of her new Single ‘Holy Moses’

Im not so keen on the new stuff video what with all the X-factor style dancers.. but here it is.  Make your own mind up!  Vimeo would’nt let me post the video on here but heres the Link

Fela Soul – De La Soul Vs Afrobeat

Growing up on De La Soul whom happen to be probably my favourite Hip-Hop artists I was most pleased to come across this which fuses said genre with that of Fela Kuti’s Afrobeat sound which has made quite a re-emergance on the music scene of late. Can’t get enough of this track! – Hotshot75

 

 

Smoking.

Posted in Just talking..., Photography on 13/10/2011 by Reckless Times

 

Smoking. Its a personal choice and people who choose to smoke are well aware of the dangers.  Its not my bag but I dont judge those whose bag it is…  its your call.  Here are a few statistics about smoking:

  • Smoking is a primary cause of lung cancer.
  • Around 40,800 people were diagnosed with lung cancer in the UK in 2008.
  • Around 35,260 people in the UK died from lung cancer in 2008.
  • In 1974 45% of adult smoked cigarrettes.  in 2009 that figure has declined to 21%.
  • Treating smokers costs the NHS £2.7bn a year compared with 1.7bn 10 years ago.  (Its argued smokers pay £9bn a year in tax in the UK.)
  • 95.3% of all statistics are made up. (but only this one out of the last 5 of the above is.)

As I said its not for me to tell anyone how to lead their life – I like the odd drink or two and im sure some similar stats could be produces for those.  Dont worry or ill produce a set of stats for stress!

Trolle//Siebenhaar – Couple Therapy

Posted in Music Video on 13/10/2011 by Reckless Times

Trolle//Siebenhaar straight out of Denmark that consists of two people. Ane Trolle pens the lyrics and delivers super-sultry vocals. Pato Siebenhaar serves up the hooks and beats. Both do so in perfect fashion and the blend is something to be heard.  This is good!
