This old banger crossed my path today… an old new beat “classic”.
Baby Wants to Ride by B-Art is a cover of Jamie Principle’s Baby Wants to Ride… it was in turn sampled on Push to Enter by Jerome Sydenham… does this close some circle of sampledom? Or is there somewhere out there another producer about to sample Jerome Sydenham’s version and so on until the end of time?
THE END OF TIME!

While I waited for bread to bake the other night I decided to kill time and watch a movie I’d had sitting waiting for such a time I had quiet… Now I’m a big fan of watching movies and will watch just about anything… my four fave movie categories are (in order of preference), Science Fiction, War, Zombie, Utter Shite. I spend hours hunting for movies of the first three categories that I’ve not watched… and am overwhelmed by movies from the fourth.
A few years back I was obsessed with Finnish …

Last week a random remix popped up on my iTunes which I’d not listened to since I added it eons ago… as can sometimes happen I took time out of my busy schedule (yeah right) and went off in search of the editor looking for some newer gems to add to my library and ears… which lead me to grab some mixes, and this week’s mix of the week features one such beast…a really nice passing time by with pleasant sounds type affair – i.e. perfect for the office or …

The new thing in the home recording studio of Travis is bad remixes… something he amuses himself and his friends with. I’m not sure of the context of the original – probably game related as that is his obsession… and definitely silly… but I do like his progression with drum programming – he really has a knack and ear for it, me jealous… yep!
This makes for a pallet cleansing change from the local singles I waded through earlier in the week as I picked my choices for the music awards later …

With banners held high and anger set deep…
we await the conquest of our land like a bunch of frightened sheep.
With distractions at hand…
we focus on screens.
With hearts all aglow…
we pokey a-mon.
With rustic good cheer…
we’d really like a beer.

It’s Monday so cheer up we (wage) slave for four more this week

Haemogoblin has dropped a new track this week, his twenty-fifth and it would be pretty rank if I didn’t rate it as my tune of the week, so here it is. Its quite different to the last track of his I featured here – less dance and more contemplative perhaps. Whatever it is I like the direction he’s on at the moment, experimenting with arrangements and laying of instruments.
Anyways this has been the sound of a small corner of Glen Eden this week and I for one like it a lot.
