Playlist of the Week #9

Our friends at have come up trumps with another very cool playlist of the week, this time from DaveHate.  He describes himself and his music here in his own words.
“My name is Dave Haight (Dave Hate) and I am a turntablist/producer.
I am from Southern California and I got my start with hiphop in the early 90s as a grafitti artist when I listened to boombap/jazz.  As time progressed I ventured into djing as a better way to stay out of trouble.  The djing quickly evolved into turntablism (the musical art of using turntable/vinyl as an instrument.  I learnt and studied from artists like DJqbert, Wes Montgomery, Rocraida, Roy Ayers, Bob James, Beat Junkies, ISP etc. I began making loops to scratch to  just for practice and they consisted of simple drum loops and that evolved into full production.  oday I still djing today because I love it and it’s were I started from.  I’m mixing more jazz/funk/breaks now and not as much hiphop unless its intelligent art and I think real hiphop has been used and exploited so poorly in the last decade.
I hope my work can keep the true art form evolving and hope all who listen will appreciate the work I do and the awesome artists that i sample.  Peace and blessings to all fighting the good fight for real music.”
Have a listen right here!  And if you like this, check out more of Dave Hate’s music at  Let us know what you think and if you have any suggestions for future Playlists of the Week.

Who is Alex Butler

Based in Wiltshire and London, I am the Founder of andl I do a little bit of everything. But mainly, business strategy, partnership and community development and marketing. You won’t find me doing much of the techie stuff. I live in the Kindredhq community, having struck out independently in November 2010. As a freelance consultant, I noticed that although many more people are choosing to work outside of organisations, there is very little in the way of support, practical or emotional, and I decided to learn more about why and what could be done to help. One of the important things that I’ve learnt is that I’m only ever as good as the people that I work and collaborate with, so although there are some impressive things on my CV, I haven’t put them in here. If you still want to know though, you can always visit my LinkedIn profile.
