Hubie Sounds Sithmas Special

Hubie Sounds Sithmas Special

Seasons greetings everyone. After a slighter-longer-than-expected break from the interweb airwaves (many apologies for that), Hubie Sounds is back on NSB Radio.

Tonight I’m celebrating an auspicious event that only comes around once in a while, and it’s not Christmas… yes that’s right, it’s Star Wars!

Those of you with eyes, ears and a pulse will probably be aware that the much beloved Sci-Fi franchise returned to our cinemas last week to a great fanfare, and as a fully signed up Star Wars geek (I have the embarrassingly large Droid collection to prove it) I’ve leapt at the opportunity to dedicate this show to my favourite movie franchise.

Once again I will be presenting a show crammed full of music that has links and themes to Star Wars – as usual, some of which might be a little tenuous – but all of it will be 100% quality tuna.

Oh and I lied about the Christmas bit earlier. I will be squeezing a little bit of festive cheer (cheese) in there too, albeit with a Star Warsy twist.

Hubie Sounds 101

Hubie Sounds 101

Hi gang. Tonight on NSB Radio I’m going to focus on some of the fresher beats that have been getting my booty shaking in recent months, as well as my usual eclectic selection of old skool classics.

As part of this I’m going to present a showcase of tunes from one of my favourite new(ish) labels – Perfect Driver Music. Based in Los Angeles, this label was set up in 2012 by Matthew Anthony and features an excellent roster of artists such as Aaron Snapes and Mark Starr. Much like fellow California-based label Dirtybird, Perfect Driver’s ethos is firmly based on fun, party vibes, with nods to hip hop culture and the broader bass music family.

Whether you’re a house-head or a breaks-head, if you like your beats wide and varied, you’re gonna love this label’s output.

Hubie Sounds 101 – Tuesday 8th September @ 9pm BST – live and direct on NSB Radio!

Hubie Sounds 099 – The Chemical Brothers Special

HS099 - The Chemical Brothers Special

Hi everyone. Hubie Sounds is back on NSB Radio tonight. I know it’s been a bit of a patchy year for the show, so please accept my apologies for that. I hope to make up for that with the shows I’ve got lined up for the rest of 2015, starting with this, my 99th show on the station.

To celebrate the recent release of The Chemical Brothers‘ 8th studio album, Born In The Echoes, tonight I will be dedicating my show to tunes that have influenced the duo’s music over the years, as well as tunes that have been influenced by the duo since their inception as The Dust Brothers in the early ’90s. It’s an ‘Under The Influence’ special!

Expect to hear loads of classic funk, electro, hip hop, acid house, big beat, breaks and techno, plus a few select gems from the new album too.

The Hubie Sounds ‘Chemical Brothers Special’ – Tuesday 11th August @ 9pm BST – live and direct on NSB Radio!

Hubie Sounds 098 – Leftfield Special

Hubie Sounds 098

Hi everyone. It’s been a bit of a stop-start year so far for Hubie Sounds, sorry about that. I will be making up for that with my next few radio shows which will hopefully make putting up with all the interruptions worthwhile. I can’t say much at the moment but I’ve got some special shows in store, including a very special celebratory 100th show very soon.

In the meantime however, I’m back on NSB Radio tonight, and this time around I’m celebrating the release of legendary British outfit Leftfield‘s third studio album, Alternative Light Source, which was released earlier this month.

For those of you who are unfamiliar with Leftfield, the band was formed in the late ’80s by Neil Barnes, who was shortly joined by Paul Daley. The duo released a handful of critically acclaimed singles, before dropping their debut album Leftism, in 1995, which is widely regarded as a seminal album in British dance music and for many is regarded as one of the greatest and most influential dance music albums of all time.

Their follow up album, Rhythm And Stealth, dropped in 1999 and included fan favourites Afrika Shox (featuring the iconic Afrika Bambaataa), Dusted and ‘the one from that Guinness ad with the surfing horses’, Phat Planet. After Rhythm And Stealth the band fell quiet and eventually disbanded. They re-formed for occasional tours thereafter, but eventually Daley left for good. Nothing much was heard from Barnes’ solo Leftfield project until earlier this year when a brand new single, Universal Everything, was unleashed on welcoming fans. This was shortly followed by the release of the new album, Leftfield‘s third and Barnes’ first as a solo project.

Tonight I will be dedicating my entire show to Leftfield‘s output from the last 25 years, including classics from the Leftism and Rhythm And Stealth eras, plus their various movie soundtrack work, as well as tracks from the new album.
