it’s a good day. i’m not working. i’m in the middle of reading two great books (one for the bus and one for home time) – jeff chang’s immense can’t stop won’t stop and after dark by haruki murakami. tonight i’m going to that awesome free gig in tripod (in flagranti, the juan maclean dj set, the field), and right now i’m downloading the second installment of the delancey music service. i’m going to have to fight the urge to talk about this every week, but it’s a pretty big urge. this week the interview subject is dances with white girls, one of my favourite new(ish) producers. he first came to my attention with an awesome bmore remix of stevie nicks’ edge of seventeen. within 18 months i could hear one his tracks in urban outfitters on the rapture‘s tapes compilation.
anyway he’s done a wee mix but they’ve not given us a tracklist. so i’m going to have to dig deep and find out what he’s playing. he’s an eccentric and interesting dude – check out his burning bridges and making paper mix from last year, where he goes from proper house and techno to funky house to bmore.
i hate when this happens – someone uses a track in a mix before you get the chance. what makes it even worse in this case, it’s my own edit! i recently messed around with in flagranti‘s a piece of false morality and had planned on putting it in my next mix, but all of a sudden i got an email from one colin perkins, who’d kicked off his most recent mix with that very track. it’s a half hour romp through some awesome tracks, from ireland and beyond, with newcomers and old heads alike getting airtime. i only realised this afternoon i hadn’t offered up a mix of the weekend, so here’s one to keep you buzzing on this lovely sunday afternoon.

the sun is shining, exams are over, life is sweet! going to edinburgh tomorrow so will have to leave the blog behind, so i will say today that this is my mix of the weekend.
over on blah blah blah in flagranti have thrown together a “an irreverent balance of disco, sex, dirt, distortion and tounge-in-cheek humor, all wrapped up in a gritty 70’s aesthetic,” or so says the blog. and who am i to disagree?
the details of the tracklist leave a little to be desired but the mix itself is top notch. check it out here. what better way to greet the sunshine?
