I’ve got some brand-spankin’ new trip-hop for your brain to digest on this Saturday night’s edition of The After Hours.

I’ll be featuring Skeewiff, an electronic duo from the UK. We’ll hear from their new album Ghetto Latin & Broken Ballroom, which comes out this Monday, and from the album they released last May, Skeewiff vs Amphonic. We’ll also hear from the two albums they released last year, The Skeewiff Disco and Electro Swing & Gospel-Breaks.

Nightmares On Wax, another electronic music producer from the UK, will also be releasing a new album next week, entitled Feelin’ Good. We’ll be checking out some of my favorite tracks from it.

In the second hour of the show we’ll be listening to some hip-hop courtesy of A Tribe Called Quest, Tumi & The Volume, The Roots, Black Star, and Jurrassic 5. Stream it live September 14th, 10pm-12am right here on KRUU.

hip hop- "Sample This"

Tye, your show reminds me of a new film you'll enjoy, I'm sure- "SAMPLE THIS is the true story of how unknown music producer Michael Viner brought together the greatest studio musicians of the 1970's to create an album that ultimately went nowhere... until the summer of 1973, when DJ Herc took the percussion breaks from that obscure album and extended them by playing them back to back. His beats became an anthem on the streets of the Bronx and ultimately the genre of Hip Hop, becoming one of the most sampled tracks in history and used by artists from Will Smith and Missy Elliot to Amy Winehouse and Jay-Z."

Sample This

Sounds cool, I'll have to check it out. Thanks for the recommendation.
