  1. This Weeks Top 5....And why....

    • Bobby Friction
    • 8 Apr 08, 05:25 PM

    Let me explain why i consider the following tracks to be the best 5 tracks on the Friction show this week...

    Friction's Top Five Tracks

    1. Fusing Naked Beats - 'Elation' (Just Play Records)
    Fusing Naked Beats back to doing what he does best - Four to the Floor house music with a Desi attitude. Reminds me of Zeenat Aman dancing in Qurbani - but during an episode of Skins!

    2. Tigerstyle feat. Amrik Babbal – Maan Doabe Da (Soldier Sound Recordings)
    Surely this is the best track Tigertsyle have ever done? Better than 'Mela Vich Vadja Dhol' maybe? (yes!) - it has power, confidence and a killer vocal. Real Desi Bhangra that somehow manages to sound like its from the Punjab first...not Scotland

    3. Plantlife – Love Toy (Easy League Ent)
    Of all the modern artists who have been influenced and/or sound like Prince this lot have nailed it on the head. Dirty, Sexy & Funny - Where's me high heels?

    4. Ishq Bector – Aye Hip Hopper (Times Music)
    NOTHING on my playlist is as addictive as this at the moment. First it sounds like a Nursery Rhyme - then after a few listens it sounds like Satire - then after more listens you realise its Genius fuelled Irony wearing the cloak of brilliant production. I can hear her singing it now ...."Aye Hip Hopper..."

    5. G*FAM – G Who? (G*Fam Music)
    Def 1 (part of G*Fam) was the man behind 'Hustle Everyday' - and his love of mixing classic Bollywood samples with UK Hip Hop hasnt diminished at all. This track is a bonafide single with a chorus that you can find in your white blood cells DNA...!

    So whadda ya reckon - Whats your current Top 5?
