Super Smooth Summertime Soundtracks of Splender

Since everyone down this end of the world is about to kick off into their summer holidays, a couple more links to soundtrack the funtimes ahead.
Websta’s super-smooth podcast from last week takes the edge off nicely, add on to that some grandiose feel good space age disco from Todd Terje and the sublime summer stylings of Greg Wilson as well and you’re set.
Summer soundtracks sorted. Pass me another beer.
P.S. Excuse the over-effusive language, fun in the sun tends to do that to me.

All time top 5 house sets

Well not really the all time top 5 – because that would be far too hard to decide. While listening to Dixon’s Body Language 4 for the umpteenth time I started thinking about those go-to sets that you seem to thrash but yet still give you that great sense of comfort and enjoyment years (or hundreds of listens) later.

Joris Voorn – Resident Advisor Podcast #62
Dixon – Body Language 4
Dennis Ferrer – Essential Mix 27-09-2008
Jackmate – mnml ssgs …

Big fan of The Juan MacLean – Happy House and I rather enjoyed this live version of it which turns into acid at about 8 mins and has a very nice “whoosh-bang” at about 12 mins.

Musical memories, with you for life – Body & Soul

I had an awesome dream last night. On waking up I realised it wasn’t so much a dream, it was me reliving a memory: seeing Body & Soul playing outdoors in Tokyo a few months back. It was a pretty special day, my last in Japan before heading off to Mongolia & Russia for a bit, and getting my first real chance to see some proper house in a long time.
It was an outdoor event under big tents which came in handy with the torrential rain that didn’t let up, but most …
