return of the blurg

i haven’t blogged in, like, a week, which is a crazy long time. my excuse is that this time last week i was in a field in belgium, and i deigned not to bring my iphone with me. i didn’t even tweet for five whole days, which must be some kind of record. while i was there i saw some crap shows, some ok shows, some good shows and some great shows. i won’t call out the crap or ok people. there’s a full sort of rundown here, but i’ll just tell you what i loved.

plastikman – rolling thunderous acid techno bleep apocalypse
renaissance man – djs who were thoroughly entertaining didn’t just play what every other dj played (ie no pon de floor, no afrojack, no swedish house mafia)
flying lotus – this was a weird one. he sort of laced through a bizarre set of hip-hop/rock/glitch/dubstep, moving from nas is like to idioteque in the space of about eight minutes. beyond that, he seemed to be having more fun playing tracks off his laptop than most ones-and-twos djs i’ve ever seen.

cool story bro

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.

das coo.

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.


it’s chrrrriiiiiiiiiistmas… all over the world tonight. this is a weird one. my internet – for whatever reason – is acting up like crazy, dragging out facebook chats, making downloads interminable, and generally being rather douche-like. so i’ve nothing new to upload for you. to be even a little bit festive, i’ve got what i think is quite a nice mix to bop to over this holiday period. it’s something i put together a while ago, i think it’s due a cd pressing, and will at some stage be given out at transmission. for now, you can download away to your heart’s content.

i wanted to make something that would both represent what the club is about, and give a flavour of what i like myself. so while the bulk of the mix is comprised of tracks from 2008, it’s peppered with classics from years gone by. i also wanted to include at least on irish act (big up schizofonics) and focus on people who have played at transmission before. eli escobar‘s glass house and joe and will ask?‘s fabric of win are two of my favourite tunes from this year, and at the other end of the spectrum tracks from dj rasoul and plastikman hopefully show that i’m not completely without roots.

it’s in split tracks, so you can shove it on your ipod and not have to worry about haido scrobbling too much, you can lash it on a cd and bump it in your car. do it.

musik feeds the soul

apologies for my silence this weekend. i was all set to write something tonight when i was attacked by a nasty piece of virus evil. pray you never see the words “security tool” when you log in… right now i’ve got some lengthy scan going in safe mode while i sit typing on a netbook.

i’m listening to this. it’s dark trippy and suits my angry mood.
