This week on The RIPEcast it’s Ali B as recorded live from The Unimog at Burning Man 2014. Enjoy.
You can catch Ali B hosting Saturday nights at West London’s ‘Paradise’ where his legendary 5 hour sets seamlessly take in everything from blues and funk to rock, soul, dub, disco and beyond, captured on his ever popular series of ‘Oh Shit!’ mix tapes and ‘Airpod’ podcasts. His latest productions include remixes for the likes of Fort Knox Five and collaborations with Nick Thayer on the mighty Bombstrikes label.
With an eclectic and varied music industry background spanning nearly two decades, Ali B has a broad sense of musical appreciation, coupled with an intuitive feel for the dance-floor which has seen him hold down DJ residencies at London’s two most influential venues. After making his mark at the legendary Blue Note club, he then went on to become the resident DJ for Fabric where he’s been since the day it opened, releasing one of the first albums in their legendary mix CD series. He has also extensively toured Europe, Australia, New Zealand, Canada, Asia, Africa and the US.
