Hi there. Its Matthew K from Interactive in Glasgow, Scotland here. Sorry
for no chart last week, but with the busiest DJ schedule in eons, as well as
a full time job, it missed the deadline. As well as my weekly residency on
Tuesdays at Firebird on Old Dumbarton Road in Glasgow's west end, also
played at an extremely successful Pyrotechics night at Club Alaska on 15th
March with Aim (Grand Central) and the new 2nd room of the Sub Club on
Saturday 9th March with Harri & Domenic. Thanks to Paul Cawley and the Sub
Club crew for a couple of brilliant nights.
Be sure to check out Matthew K in the mix with loads of special guest DJ's
at the Interactive webstation at http://www.interactivedj.co.uk with new
mixes online from Comet Records and 2 mixes from Spinning Wheel records.
Also check Matthew K on the Fenetik Radio Show on Radio Magnetic
http://www.radiomagnetic.com monthly on Wednesday's. Last date 13th March -

Matthew K DJ Chart 19th March 2002
1. Nana: Zmit (Hum Hum)
Coming through Rushour this slow motion house track features some awesome
Rhodes action resulting in one of the funkiest tracks in ages.
2. Org: Organic Language (Revirth)
This has probably been floating about for a while but those Japanese 12's
are so hard to track down, I've only just discovered it. Immense production
with broken beats, double bass AND a Calm mix on the flip. AWESOME.
3. Jazzanova: Days To Come - Ian O'Brien Mix (CDr)
Mr. O'Brien has now moved to Glasgow, and this is a forthcoming remix from
the much hailed Jazzanova album.
4. Various: Music & Movement Vol 1 (Climate)
Double CD of utterly stunning music, with countless Japanese nuggets finally
getting a release over here. Compiled by Nik Weston, this is the perfect
indicator of where music is just now. With an 8 track vinyl sampler to
follow, this is comiplation of the year so far.
5. Us3: Get Out Remixes (Universal Jazz)
2 remixes, both brilliant. Truby Trio do the big bassline buisness, while
Afronaught give us a broken beat monster.
6. Ayro: Drink / Let This (Omoa)
Second release from this exciting new Detroit label. Watch out Jazzanova,
these guys are serious contendors with their broken beat productions.
7. Phil Ranelin: Remixes (Hefty)
Very exciting remix album of this early 70's spiritual jazzer. With the
likes of Kirk Degiorgio on remix duties, this is one for the Cinematic
8. Ras: Rhythmic Altered State (Best Seven)
Forthcoming on this Sonar Kollktiv offshoot, this CDr shows yet another
genius talent from the Jazzanova family.
9. Plej: Sampler CD 2000 (CDr)
These guys are going to be massive. Following the release of their mega rare
debut 12" (does anyone actually own a copy) they follow it up with a taster
of their future releases. These guys need to be signed.
10. Massive Attack & Mos Def: I Against I (Melankolic)
There back and this shows them at their finest. Their most hip hop
production in 10 years, this is an awesome record with the mighty Mos Def.
11. Baby Mammoth: Frozen (Pork)
These guys never fail to impress with their excellent productions and this
is yet another example of mid tempo groove mastery.
12. Various: Disco Not Disco 2 (Strut)
Revisiting those 1980's moments again, this is a worthy follow up to last
years excellent first volume. Includes the mega rare dub mix of Eddy Grant's
'Timewarp' along with other forgotten classics.
13. Citrona.net: Vitamin C (White)
Again from the States, this lovely double vinyl gives us a some subtle jazz
influences over an old style Kruder and Dorfmeister production. Very nice
14. MJ Cole: Nextisms (Mercury)
From the 'Long Time Dead' soundtrack album sampler, this shows MJ Cole
taking a darker route into the 2 step sound and bodes well for the next
15. Block 16: Morning Sun Remixed (Nuphonic)
The original Block 16 album was arguably the finest long player in
Nuphonic's catalogue and this remix album is full of gems. From Dubtribe
taking on the Bim Sherman track to Attica Blues highly underrated Charlie
Dark reworking the Jon Lucien track, this is very exciting.
16. Virgin Souls: Next Meal (Jugula)
New band, new label. Watch out for this as its going to be big. The trip hop
revival starts here.
17. Su Paka Pooh: Sunny Side Garden (Disorient)
Following on from their amazing cover of the Art Ensemble of Chicago, here
we have a full length album from these amazing Japanese producers.
18. Nu Spirit Helsinki: Album Promo (CDr)
Only 100 in circulation and forthcoming on Guidance, this is already going
to be one of the years best albums and we are only in January. Watch out for
19. Hattler: Delhi News / Delhi Blues (Jubilee)
Some lovely Indian flavoured down tempo moments from the ever impressive
20. Amalgamation Of Soundz: Maze (Earth Project)
They're back and this time its more in a tech-house style but still with
that amazing sound and production quality that only the Amalgamation of
Soundz know how to produce.
21. Fenomenon: Visjon Nord EP (Nuphonic)
One of Nuphonic's brightest hopes give us their second EP after a long wait.
Its worth it though with a varied selection ranging from the jazzy downtempo
grooves, bossa beats and a remix from Compost's Butti 49.
22. Shane Schaetz: Infinite Explorer (CDr)
Hailing from the States, this gorgeous 3 track CDr of unreleased tracks
shows the Americans are quickly picking up on the nu jazz sound.
23. Incognito: Reach Out - Remixes (Talkin Loud)
Excellent package with remixes from Alex Attias, IG Culture, Pepe Braddock
and Groove Chronicles on this double slice of vinyl. Go straight for the IG
Culture Mix for the best thing he's done in ages.
24. 4 Hero: Hold It Down - Teebone & The Exemen Mixes (Talkin Loud)
The remixes keep coming with some amazing sub bass 2 step buisness.
25. Jung Collective: Injustice (Nanny Tango)
Through the Kudos crew this lovely 7" single has an amazing Plaid remix on
26. Victer Duplaix: Sensuality (K7)
Following on from the blinding DJ Kicks compilation here is yet more
evidence of Victer's stunning future music.
27. The Shiba Experiment: Hanadokei EP (Bambola)
Fantastic future jazz house from Japan. With 3 excellent tracks on offer,
the forthcoming compilation on Bambola should be something special.
28. Ruisort: Acapulco Now (Certificate 18)
Hailing from Mexico this long player shows Cerificate 18 following the Good
Looking camp into a more nu jazz mould. Excellent.
29. Lenny Costanza: Can't Get You Out Of My Bed (Red Egyptian)
Been out for a short while now but only just tracked down Earl Zinger's jazz
reworking of Kylie!!!
30. Rhythm & Sound: We Been Traddin (Burial Mix)
Those Germans have the reggae flowing through their blood. You know what to
expect and you are never let down - perfect.
