BEAT BUILDING PROJECT - STARKEY, RESO AND ANNEKA in Mary Anne Hobbs' Experimental show

Hectic, messy, intense, and very funny special show with Philly's Street Bass don, Starkey racing against the clock to build a totally new tune from scratch with the suport of a well-known dubstep producer and percussionist, Reso, and vocalist Anneka, plus hundreds of samples sent for this particular endevour by friends, Radio 1 stuff, producers and listerners. WOW!!  It was Roni Size who originally came up with this fantastic idea 10 years ago, he tested this in the studio with MC Dynamite.


While Starkey and crew are busy working and tension builds up in the world famous BBC's Maida Vale studios, Mary Anne Hobbs plays, as usual, great and eclectic selection of fantastic tracks with one of my faves from Starkey - Fidelio, great new Reso, N-type shit, beautiful Mizz Beats' Deep Medi - tradamerak sound, Mosca's Square One remix (Mosca will be on the show on Feb2)  or great future beats from collaboration of P.U.D.G.E & Dibiase or Shlomo.  

Then finally, after two hours of growing tension, the built track drops! Was it worth waiting? Downlad the created track and check for yourselves.

Starkey (feat. Reso and Anneka) — Moments Of Mine

10 years ago, Ronis Size had 4 hours, in 2010 Starkey and co. had just 2! Gosh, techhnology is one thing but time-pressure creative beat making is quite another. And you know what (to use MAH famous phrase) - Starkey, Reso and Anneka f....g did it succesfully in barely 2h. People are working on such tunes for weeks ...

I post here two links to this fantastic show:

If you can, please listen to this show online (active till next Thursday) to support Mary Anne Hobbs and her fantastic program. Also check incredible photos there and watch out for the film footage on her youtube channel soon!
Unfortunately, I've always had enormous problems with streaming her shows from Radio 1's site (never succeeded as a matter of fact?). I believe there are more of such listeners out there. I could not resist myself this time - for all of you I post a downloadable version of this breath-taking show.
