Thanks for these 'Patchanka' tips.
IMHO, the new album (Proxima Estacion Esperanza) is pretty damn good.
However, it is really (to quote someone else) Clandestino's baby sister , and
has a lot of samples from it's older sibling. Both albums are well worth
On another note, I was at Attica Blue's Blueprint Sessions club a few weeks
ago, where Herbert was DJing - he played an excellent set. Completely blew
the crowd away. I hadn't heard of him before, and am wondering whether his
Bodily Functions album is any good ?
