sidetracked last night was, as ever, a lot of fun. i had a friend who’s not into djing join me in the booth, so i got to explain what i do and how things work and so on. things really got interesting when frank sweeney showed up with serato. frank followed my pop-disco set with a killer slow hip-hop set – some dilla, some flylo, a couple of awesome b.cause edits, it was a joy to watch. if i can be half that good at true stories in a few weeks i’ll be doing well!

after sidetracked i headed down to see ewan pearson at nightflight. as fellow dj jevan described it, ewan started a bit housey, then got techy and glitchy, and finished up with what i’ll call a lot of “reach for the lasers” tunes. you know it’s a good set when you don’t know anything but you still love it – and then towards the end he whipped out this monster…
