soundcheck yo


so tonight’s set at soundcheck was kind of weird. i tried to keep it all picnic friendly, but i veered outside of that field once or twice. i had expected to be playing a bit earlier, so didn’t have the necessary tunes to fit the time i ended up playing – rookie mistake. i had fun though – and mary jane got a huge response!

i had fun. weird hearing “the news” while i was playing, but hey i’m not going to get into that. apparently the dj before me played my girls too – i was so close to playing brother sport or the dam funk remix of summertime clothes, but of course i had to pick the obvious one… walking on a dream got a lot of love. abletonising will follow.

last night’s set

well, kind of. took the tunes i played at soundcheck last night and lashed them together in ableton in roughly the same manner. roughly. wish i could record meself live. some day, some day… tracklist is here. feedback is welcome.

haido – soundcheck mix


i was the only dj at soundcheck tonight who didn’t play the original zero… but anyway, i pretty much enjoyed tonight’s set more than any other in recent memory. damn happy. funny that a tune that was almost an afterthought was the best received – loads of people came up to me during needy girl, including one girl who wanted to hear momma’s boy. i deliberately left fancy footwork at home because i knew i’d be playing needy girl… anyway – this is what it looked like.

Armand Van Helden – Playmate
DJ Mehdi – Pocket Piano (Joakim Remix)

i also threw on modest mouse’s tiny cities made of ashes at the end of new amusement‘s set (not without encouragement). good night this was. and sarah played yes! quality.

about to start a mix that will represent these tunes. hold on, holy ghost style.

don’t forget

soundcheck tonight – myself, resident sarah fox, codes, new amusement and talulah does the hula.

as above. i’m djing at soundcheck on thursday and i’m mulling over what i’m going to play. maybe the bloc party remix of needy girl which i picked up in city discs last week. maybe some liquid liquid.

or else some new mpfrees. like switch’s björk remix. or alex gopher’s kid sis remix (which i meant to play last time, and i only remembered when i passed a fruit’n’veg shop called get fresh on my way home). or the new amanda blank track.

the last three are all available to download, guilt free, at rcrd lbl. it’s awesome. obviously i have no problem sending money in the direction of artists i love, but when you can get tracks for free it’s even better. holla.
