Not much I need to say. A fair amount of riddims to reverberate your club chasms, tetchy laptop speakers and more importantly, eardrums, have been released this Gregorian calendar year.
The trend for a number of lists concluding the vast soundwaves is to be overly pretentious.
I, for one, couldn’t give a flying fack about some spiel hipsters use to soundtrack their organic squat socials where they muse about Sartre.
Hope you enjoy some of the selection and see you in 2012.
It’s been away for a bit (a month or so) and if you’ve been famished during summer, this edition of F.T.T should go far to fill your hole. In addition, to the standard seminal selection and future favourites, the addition of two must-have mixes from Four Tet’s Fabriclive and Lunice’s FADER mix should soundtrack halycon weather in the mind rather than hopelessly peering through double-glazed windows.

Suitably Spoiled. Enjoy.
This series has become a likkle sparse but please forgive me. This edition has a wide slew of songs as ever rivalling the equator in breadth. A syncopated 2-step slant from Deadboy for the Modfather that is Paul Weller,The 2 Bears metamorph the psych-pop of Cults into a refreshed fleeting swang jungle jaunt and Sanka of Cool Runnings fame is immortalised into a riddim finally.

Ossie – Gypsy Woman Refix
Walton – Sanka
Cults – Go Outside (The 2 Bears Remix)
Liquideep – Alone SA FLAVA
Blawan – Potchla Vee
Ruff Squad – Man Dem Peep a rare occasion of Tinchy without shades on.
Teeth – Shawty V.I.P
Boxcutter – Foxy PERCY
Amy Winehouse – In My Bed (Bugz In The Attic Dub)
To have Salaam Remi allow you to use Made You Look on your first LP and still make it as your own deserves props. A fair amount of rubbish has been debated along with the disgraceful jokes but I think her music more than speaks for itself. A fresh talent who had knew no boundaries and repped the UK to the fullest. Rest In Peace Amy.
The mercury has finally risen above 15 degrees.Ice cream chimes are back,females that were akin to UFO’s in the winter are out of hibernation and the flying antdem are back to rear their butters selves again (They usually love to nest in Afros…so boy off the trim!) This week’s assortment is a tribute to 90’s R&B and Hip Hop,with a few other choice pick ‘n’ mixes sauntered around 808 bass,sparse beats and conscious rhymes.
