as i mentioned earlier, i played true stories last night. it was pretty quiet – you know, day after a bank holiday, exam season – but i’m not mad. if you got mad at people not coming to your gigs you’d be me mad at a lot of people all the time.
so anyway this is what i played. it’s a bit greatest hits, but hey. i tried to keep it varied. that chris wade track is so good.

after love me like this orlando and i went back to back, i can’t really remember what he played, definitely some moombathon, i also played plastikman’s konception, the ayres remix of wale’s roof, and i finished with don’t scandalize mine by sugar bear, which has so many gorgeous elements of perfection – think break, talking heads sample, rakim sample…
maybe i’ll play it again this saturday at transmission.
