IM TELLING YOU....TRUS'ME



I MET DAVID AKA TRUS'ME AT THE BEAT N RHYTHM RECORD SHOP, WHILE I WAS IN MANCHESTER SPINNING A %100 PURE DISCO PARTY CALLED "NORTHERN DISCO" (SHOUTS TO AL KENT/MILLION$$ ORCHESTRA AND LEE SHANKY SHANKLAND !)
I HEARD SOMEBODY CALL MY NAME..AND SOON AFTER WE STARTED TALKING, HE SEEMED SURPRISED I KNEW OF HIM (AS IF I ONLY LIKE OLD MUSIC..)
I LOVED THE FLIP HE DID OF MCNEAL AND NILES... STILL DO. FAST FORWARD A FEW MONTHS NOW... WE BECAME HOMIES.

SO, YOUNG DAVID (YA KNOW LIKE LIL' DEEZY AND YUNG DEE) AKA TRUS'ME ( DONT ASK WHAT A TRUS'ME IS WHILE IN JAPAN ) JUST SENT ME HIS NEW LP " IN THE RED" WHICH DOESNT DROP TIL NOV.

SOME FIIIIIRE ON THIS !!!!! DONT SLEEP !!!

LAST YEAR HE GAVE ME THIS REALLY ROUGH TRACK WITH AMP FIDDLER...COVERING A BILL WITHERS TUNE I BELIEVE... I KEPT SWEATING HIM TO FINISH IT... WELL ITS DONE. AND ITS CRAZY HOT.

THE JOINT WITH DAM- FUNK ON THE VOCODER.... WHOOOOOOEEEEE.

THERES ALSO A TRACK CALLED "SWEET MOTHER" WHICH I HAD A HAND IN ( I HAD THE SAMPLE SET ASIDE, IT WAS SUPPOSED TO BE FOR OUR PROJECT) YOUNG DAVID BEGGED FOR IT TO MAKE THIS LP..... WHAT COULD I SAY ?
A DEDICATION TO ALL THE MOTHERS OUT THERE
AFRO FUNK,DISCO,909'S BUMPING OVER SOME BEAUTIFUL CHORDS AND SINGING... A WINNER FOR SURE.
MY MOTHER WAS THE BOMB, SHE IS TRULY MISSED, I HOPE YOURS IS TOO ! YOU ONLY GET ONE.

ANYWAY... FANS OF THIS MANS WORK WILL BE PLEASED WHEN THIS DROPS IN NOVEMBER....BE SURE TO COP IT.
I CANT POST THESE NEW TRACKS, BUT I WILL SHARE SOMETHING ELSE OF HIS.
BE SURE TO LOOK OUT FOR LINKWOOD AS WELL...THAT CAT IS CRAZY TALENTED, DO NOT SLEEP ON THIS CREW.

ANYBODY THATS HEARD ME REALLY GET LOOSE, OR HAS KNOWN ME FOR A WHILE....KNOWS HOW MUCH I LOVE G.Q. AND THE CONNECTION THAT THIS GROUP HAS TO MY CHILDHOOD.
FOR THOSE THAT DONT KNOW, THEY WERE A DIFFERENT GROUP BEFORE G.Q.... CALLED THE RHYTHM MAKERS, AND THE JAM THEY ARE MOST KNOWN FOR... DISCO NIGHTS (TIMELESS!!) WAS CALLED "SOUL ON YOUR SIDE", WITH COMPLETELY DIFFERENT LYRICS.
HERES TRUSME DOING HIS FLIP OF OF SOUL ON YOUR SIDE. ENJOY !
