Lotek 'The Rudest Dude' video

A couple of months back I posted a sampler for Lotek's forthcoming album 'International Rudeboy', and played a track called 'The Rudest Dude' at the end of this months radio show. I love my reggae music, and also pretty much everything that Lotek does musically, as he incorporates a lot of it in his own sound. So imagine my joy when he sent me this new video for 'The Rudest Dude', an absolute corker that has him placed in the studio with the mighty King Jammy at the controls (although he was probally still Prince Jammy at the time of this recording), and Bunny Lee looking on. Now this is my shit! Well, its not, its Loteks, but ya get my drift...

And as a bonus, here's the original footage Lotek has used, one of my all time favourites from the late, great Delroy Wilson, and 'Dancing Mood'... enjoy.

Friday the 12th of November is the date for ya diary, as SUSPECT PACKAGES LIVE returns to the Vibe Bar on Brick Lane. Rolling with not one, but two heavy albums to launch...

> Reppin' North London will be High Focus Records & Jam Baxter delivering the 'Rinse Out Friday / Spack Out Friday' album to ya, a sick album that finds Baxter in full flow over some a-grade beats. He's most certainly up there with the best right now. Watch for special guest appearances on stage too, don't sleep, this'll be large.

> There'll also be Steady & Efeks aka Prose, dropping heaters off their 'Force Of Habit' album. This South London emcee/producer combo have been delivering original boombap pressure for while, their debut album certainly adds them to the list alongside Jam Baxter as one of the best outfits to emerge in recent times, who know the true essence of Hip Hop music and how to deliver it. Expect special guests on stage plus DJ Matman who'll be warming up the stage for them....

Expect good vibes a plenty, this'll be a dope night, these two albums are heavyweight business! Combined with residents Disorda & DJ LoK who'll be dropping Hip Hop, Reggae & Dubstep heaters...
