sidetracked bank holiday EXTRAVAGANZA

yupp, i used the e word. it’s a big deal. sidetracked has been running things between 8 and 11 on a friday since the beginning of the year, nicely leading into trainwreck, but tonight it’s sidetracked all night long. jamie clarke, frank sweeney, colin perkins, jevan neilan, quigo, kevin aiken, sophie de vere, jeff courtney flynn, shane morrisey, sarah mckenna, james o’donohue, just daire and myself. expect some of this.

dj sector go-slow

last night i played sidetracked for the first time in a few weeks. i always enjoy those sets as it gives me the chance to play sloooowwwweeer. i started off at 124 and ended up down at 114. mmmmmm. daire jumped in and played this ridiculous(ly good) edit of thriller, but he’s my boss there so who am i to say no.

after sidetracked i went to the good bits to see boy 8-bit. it’s always funny watching this long-haired dude in a death metal tee rock out to dance music. but when you think that guy is the man behind such impeccable productions as baltic pine and that remix of florence and the machine, it makes a lot more sense. he even dropped joe and will ask?‘s the rusty pig, which is gas as i’d always thought it shared stylistic tendencies with the boy’s remix of mars. there were a lot more people present than at his show at the twisted pepper last year, which is great, but he really deserves much more attention and credit for his top-notch tracks and perfect djing. boy 8-bit, i salute you.

i had nothing to do with this poster

come down. i want to play this as it’s the most heart-breakingly beautiful thing i’ve heard in a while. it just magically appeared on my ipod and i feel in love straight away.

sorry, got sidetracked there

last thursday i did something i’ve never done before – played two gigs in one night. the first was a low-key affair, playing breezy disco at just daire‘s sidetracked night in the newly refurbished chocolate bar. it’s a lovely spot, and it’s a great place to play some funkier stuff. daire played some great disco like still going theme, and the siriusmo remix of shooting star. another first was that myself and quigo went back to back – something we first talked about as far back as june or july 2008. we should hopefully be doing that again some time.

after side tracked it was down to krash in wax, my first time playing downstairs after several spots upstairs in spy. being a three-roomed affair, naturally the crowd ebbed and flowed, but i was pretty happy with how the set went. also props to colin perkins not least for having me down, but also for looping and filtering and all sorts of ish on top of what i was playing.
