Bugz in the Attic’s very own Daz-I-Kue has launched his first podcast with a live-recording from Saturday’s Do-Over in Los Angeles. With Aloe Blacc on MC duties, Daz plays a selection of tracks by Gil Scott-Heron (the Bloodfire re-edit), Altered Natives, Michael Jackson, Joy Jones, Bugz in the Attic and Omar.
The set is
only available in PodOmatic quality, but with some luck a better version will be available on the Do-Over blog anytime soon.
August 9, 2009 As I hoped, the mix (and more) is now available in better quality!
The Vibe Conductor DJ Stylus has posted a video of Daz-I-Kue putting hands on his tracks.
You can also check out the first part of the remix session, further videos from DJ Stylus include Mark de Clive-Lowe playing in Washington, Taylor McFerrin and Ty at the Uprock studio.
The ties between Joy Jones and Bugz in the Attic go back to 2002, when she had an appearance on the Agent K album Feed the Cat (vocals on the title track). Later that year she sang on Zombie (together with Wunmi), the Bugz contribution on the Fela Kuti tribute compilation Red, Hot and Riot (a 12″ on Bitasweet followed in 2003). Following silent three years, Joy made a reappearance with her fantastic Divinity EP on Co-Operation Records.
So much for the introduction, let’s get to the news. Daz-I-Kue, now living in the states, has finished mixing the final track for Joy’s upcoming LP. In the meantime, we get a brandnew EP.A1. The Joy (Soulful Fundamentalist mix)
A2. The Joy (Drop It mix)
A2. The Joy (Lil’ Dave remix)
B1. This Too Shall Pass (Daz-I-Kue mix)
B2. This Too Shall Pass (Spinnerty remix)
B3. This Too Shall Pass (acappella)
The Daz-I-Kue remix is currently the second-best selling tune on Bagpak Music, and the vinyl-record is available via Juno Records since this week.
