Groovement: Ben Webster (Ital Sounds)28/03/2009 Duración: 57min
The Ital Duke cut his teeth on the sounds of Reggae with Ska band The Frustrations back in Oxford, where he immersed himself in the heavy sounds of Jamaica's finest Dub and Reggae producers. The Duke moved to Sheffield in 2007 and started in radio with the 'Dub Revolution' show (SureRadio) which blasted out reggae, dub, ska and conspiracy theories as and when they were needed (frequently). He then began DJing under the title of 'The Ital Duke' around Sheffield and started the 'Ital Sounds' show (forgeradio.com), this time as himself - Ben Webster - in 2008, which serves up a hearty portion of Reggae, Dub and Ska with extra Dubstep, Hip-Hop, Soul and anything else Ital every Thursday evening. Groovement hooked up with the Duke when he was spinning at one of the Colonel's legendary gigs in Sheffield, saw the fire in his eyes and got him on here!

Groovement: Jimmy Screech (Banana Klan)10/03/2009 Duración: 25min
Jimmy Screech warmed up for Ugly Duckling at the Ruby Lounge in Manchester, and Groovement was on hand to grab him for a niiice interview. Despite being flu-ridden and frankly knackered mate, Jimmy was more than happy to shoot the shit with Groovement - also along for the ride were Gordon G, who heads up the Banana Klan label with Roots Manuva. Gibbs, he of the fold-away keyboard, and DJ Mr Cosmo provided the remaining ambience. Enjoy, this Groovement is both informative and pretty funny. Recorded February 2009.
Groovement: Quantic25/12/2008 Duración: 22min
Will Holland is a top bloke. Not only this, he's now a Colombia-dwelling top bloke, so can be relatively hard to get hold of. In December he visited the UK; Groovement grabbed a pre-breakfast chat with him the morning after his Friends and Family session at the Mint Lounge in Manchester. Pod in for an insight in Will's views on latin music and breakfast.

Hoya:Hoya played host to Marc Mac this month... this man is a legend, a pioneer and bloody nice. We find a quiet corner in Manchester's music box and chat sci fi, Visioneers, legacies and podomatic.
