Playlist: Dive Slow, June 21 2013

Dive Slow happens every third Friday of the month at Sticky Mike’s Frog Bar, Brighton. It’s a free-entry night, running from around 9pm until the wee hours of the next morning.

Lucky me got to play records, one after another, at the TV On The Radio-curated All Tomorrow’s Parties weekender of May 10-12.

I kept it pretty ‘party’ focused. What with it being midnight ’til 2am, and the day having seen acts like Spank Rock (and Amanda Blank) and El-P bring the rhymes with no little success, it was essentially a pop(ish)-minded Dive Slow set. (Speaking of which, the next Dive Slow is June 21 at Sticky Mike’s Frog Bar, Brighton.)

The set was as follows. Plenty of people danced. Some people fell over.

De La Soul – A Rolling Skating Jam…
Jungle Brothers – Doin Our Own Dang
Busta Rhymes – Whoo Ha (Jey Dee remix)
Masta Ace – Sittin On Chrome (Ummah remix)
J Dilla – Baby
9th Wonder – Now I’m Being Cool

Company Flow – 8 Steps To Perfection

M.I.A. – Bad Girls (remix w/ Missy Elliott and Rye Rye)
Missy Elliott – Get Ur Freak On
Angel Haze – Werkin’ Girls
Nikki D – Daddy’s Little Girl
Jay-Z – Hard Knock Life
Jay-Z/Kanye West – N In Paris
Kanye West – Gold Digger
EPMD – Gold Digger
Eric B and Rakim – I Know You Got Soul
Run-DMC – It’s Tricky
LL Cool J – Mama Said Knock You Out
A Tribe Called Quest – Can I Kick It?
