Italo House Tune #6 and A Deep Dark Pit

As I mentioned earlier, I’ve not long climbed out of a long illness – Boxing Day ’til the end of January. I’ve never been so ill for so long. It all started with a cold, but got progressively worse, to the point were I couldn’t even drink water. I lost interest in everything and found it very hard to get out of bed – real weird head-messing stuff.  I’m not one for going to the doctors, and would rather try to cure myself, but I succumbed, unfortunately. The doctor couldn’t explain the problem, but diagnosed Bronchitis. As Steve Cobby said – ‘Proper Bucking Broncho’ (try saying that when you’ve had a few).  It took until the end of February to feel 100%, so Christmas/New Year passed me by. I was also booked to DJ at this…

HSOB 2013

but I had to cancel, which was a bummer, as I was really looking forward to playing with a load of Brummie DJ pals and spinning a Breathless/Snobs set, with a few fresh platters thrown in. I started digging-in-the-crates early December, so that I was sort of prepared with a loose set of gems, and whilst diggin’ I unearthed this great moody Italo House track, which still hits the mark for me….

Chieftain

It’s taken me a while to post about this excellent music, but I’m sure you’ll agree it’s worth the wait.

Birmingham via Hull – Adam Regan and Steve Cobby, under the name Chieftain, have come up with a blinding four track EP, that takes it’s inspiration from early 90’s house music right up to the present day Slo-mo House sound.

In 2003/4 The Regan and I were asked by the Mesa Verde crew to start a monthly Leftfoot night in Paris, which we did at Le Batofar – an old fishing boat moored on the Seine. We traveled on the Euro Star with kilos of vinyl and our fellow Brummie breadbin, Ras Tweed. We took many guests – Roots Manuva; Steve Cobby; Richard Dorfmeister; Jah Grizzly; Farda P; Daddy G; Jazzanova, to name but a few.

Ivan Smagghe DJ’d at a House Music night on Le Batofar around the same period too. I found this interesting interview with him on this very interesting blog.

Its a long interview but worth watching.
