HIT IT AND QUIT IT- Feb. 21, 2011 (PLUS 'The World's Worst Sitcom')

Well, this show seems exceptionally frivolous in the wake of the recent tragic events in Christchurch. We at Hit It and Quit It send all our love and thoughts to the people of Canterbury who suffered and continue to struggle through what is destined to be the worst natural disaster in New Zealand history. I will be playing a benefit show to raise money for the NZ Red Cross Earthquake Appeal 2011 this Sunday, more on this tomorrow or here.

If you are in the mood for a bit of a distraction though, we offer up to you one of the most ridiculous shows to date, completely by accident really. It all started out from a desire to have some 'fun'... Impeccably selected and mixed dancefloor bangers courtesy Frank Booker punctuated by an ongoing discussion/debate on the world's worst sitcom in history.

The Booker Prize??

Note: While 'Supergran' eventually took out the 'grand prix' for most obscure and horrible sitcom, I was later corrected by HIQI friend and frequent guest Mark Williams that this was, in fact, more of a children's show. We sincerely apologize to anybody (or any children) offended by our gross oversight and unforgivable cultural neglegence.

The joy of doing a weekly radio show is that every so often, presuming you're on air for a few years, an auspicious date will appear on the day you're going to do your show.... A Valentine's day on a Monday? Oh, ok then! Disco. Valentines. Special!

I decided to start things in a "Love Boat" Disco fashion with the Paul Cacia band. What says Valentines Disco more than the Love Boat?! Ahem.

Anywaaaaay, we kicked on through the classics: Al Hudson 'Spread Love', Renee & Angela's undeniable jam 'I Love You More', Stevie Wonder, J Dilla, Cerrone....
Ah, just read the damn playlist. Below in all it's LOVE glory!

Big thanks to Reggie Blount holding down producer duties, and our special drop in guest, Jellphonic!

Enjoy. Hit It!

Alright! Another week, another edition of Hit It & Quit It. This week, both Recloose and myself were back on board for the first co-hosted show in 3 weeks! This meant much debate about all sorts of topics (Recloose even mentioned sports: Usually a big no-no on Hit It & Quit It!!), arguments over the pronunciation of certain words (Diaspora anyone?), and the usual selection of dope music, old & new.

This week we got treated to goodness from the likes of (deep breath....): Bakey Ustl (how dope is this record?! Phew!), Nebraska, The Dirtbombs, Inkswel, Martyn & Mike Slott, Hizatron (Mr Scruff on the remix), Matthew Dear.... Ahhh, and much more. Enjoy!

RBMA: Tokyo 2011

Here at Hit It & Quit It we are large supporters of the Red Bull Music Academy. Many moons ago (Sao Paolo, Brazil, 2002!) I attended the academy, and in 2006 Recloose was a lecturer in the Melbourne edition. We even threw our end of year event with Moodymann and DJ Day in conjunction with the RBMA, so it's safe to say we're good pals!

If you're an aspiring (or even reasonably established!) Producer, DJ, Singer, Instrumentalist (or all of the above), you should absolutely be applying for this.

Check the website for more info, and good luck!
