It was a long weekend this weekend. Bank holiday, though I’m not sure what we were celebrating? Notting Hill Carnival maybe? Or just the end of summer……
I spent the majority of the weekend listening to music. It’s been excellent. On Saturday I made my way out, through the thousands of people who had been sucked in to paying 45 quid to see Carl Cox play at the Common near where I’m living, out to Rough Trade to see some Indie Band from Canada called Holy Fuck. Seeing as it was …
Two beautiful sets from Move D (aka David Moufang), both have been on extremely high rotation of late (hat tip to Joe and Will)

Mick: I’m seeing Ewan Pearson this weekend, for free! 🙂
thinking Redshape would be way too banging at Berghain for my taste.
Drake: Man – his shit is the hotness, perfect location for it….
And is less banging than Eqan Person can get! heh
Think Pearson will be too epic for panormaa, it suits more subdued grooves of a berlin nature methinks to be truely hot, tho it’s an ace space for anything.
think berghain room on a kompakt night 😀
Mick: Pearson plays to suit the venue. He’ll mack it.
Websta: your love fer pearson …
There are some things on in Auckland this weekend.
Tomorrow night (friday 15) I venture into the rain to play at the supperclub on Beresford square. I like supper – despite having a dodgy rep (thanks mainly to the antics of late morning up all night mentalist partygoers) it is generally a relaxed place where you can pretty much play whatever music you like. On an early evening in summer there are few better places in Auckland to be. On a night like tomorrow promises to be I …
Yeah yeah, it’s extremely delayed, but i figured what better way to formally introduce myself on this site than with a mix…let the music do the talking.
So with that (and for all those who can be bothered), I present to you: Dua Yabaki – a tribute to our beloved house music in all its awesome forms, influenced heavily by the sights and sounds I experienced in New York one year ago. But that’s another story.

Martha Wash “Carry On” (Masters At Work Dub)
So I am back.
Not the most exciting feeling to have but its nice to be home after living in a suitcase for 5 weeks.
So our european adventure started in Berlin, 5 days or so of hanging out in `cool berlin’. The weather was a touch average but we managed to find enough stuff to occupy us, half litre beers being 1 of them.
We got to spend some time with Simon Sting, Matt Drake and Mick the Kid who warrants special mention for moving himself back down to Berlin to hang …

In the eighties I used to do a radio show on a student station… the guy who did the show after me hosted the country music show, he was in my eyes old… and played all his music from cassettes – thus I mocked him.
I remember one day he told me that when I to got old I’d be listening to country music to, oh how I laughed.
Well two decades later here I am old… and listening to country music
With this in mind I present the first instalment of the …
