Music, sweet sweet music: Joris Voorn Balance 14

I can’t remember the last time I was quite as excited waiting for a compliation/mix to come out as I have been for Joris Voorn – Balance. As  soon as I spotted the tracklist that consisted of 103 tracks in the space of a 2cd mix – it sort of shouted that it was either going to be quite excellent, or go along the lines of being a chin stroking affair.
Happy to say that I’m only half way through listening to the first CD and this is excellent. In the …

A weekend of music

This weekend sees a few musical happenings in Auckland, which is welcome as its been pretty musically dry here lately.
Friday night Beatstreet is back – with local Poker Flat/Moon Harbour/Curl Curl boy Simon Flower playing live, alongside birthday boy Matt Drake & Brooke Casey.
On Saturday night I finally get to get my dub techno on with Rhythm & Sound and Tikiman at Totos. Unfortunately Moritz won’t be here due to ill health, but as long as I hear mango drive I’ll walk away more than happy.
Derrick Carter is also in …

The BMP Weekender: Greg Wilson & Luciano – Sydney Harbour

So the NZ contingent of the BMP have just recently returned back from a most successful weekender in Sydney, as we’ve been rabbitting on about for awhile now. 

Greg Wilson & Luciano on a boat only a 3 hour flight away. We’re there.
Huge amounts of planning went into preparing for the trip, so much so that I realised I hadn’t actually applied for leave from work until 2 days beforehand. That said, I had managed to sort out the somewhat elusive boat tickets for the BMP well in advance, so the …

Driving to a land of convicts to listen to a man with a moustache

Decemeber 6th sees the 2nd officially sanctioned BMP roadtrip, this time crossing the tasman to see Luciano play on a boat in Sydney harbour.
Seeing as the first Dixon roadtrip with the now infamous kermit-mobile went so well, the early signs are all participants are holding grand hopes of a most excellent adventure.
The boat is due to leave 11am sharp with Greg Wilson playing a 4 hour opening set, followed by a 4 hour stint from Luciano. Great work by PulseFM for managing to tee up such a great lineup and a …

Booka Shade Live @ Studio in Auckland – Friday November 19th

Booka Shade will be bringing their live show to the Studio in Auckland this Friday. It has to be said that we don’t often get large electronic acts of this calibre down this way – so it will be great to see a big scale event for something other than trance!

 
From the promoter:
Booka Shade will be performing live in concert on November 21, 2008 at Studio. Their live performance is simply unbelievable. They’re dubbed by many as the best live electronic act in the world!
Booka Shade will tour their 3rd …

Deetron in the AK

Its a bit of a hectic night in Auckland-town tonight – with a few internationals all touching down at the same time. Mark Farina and Danny Howells are both in town for those interested, but the majority of the BMP will be heading along to Deetron @ Ink.
Last time he was in town he trucked through a few sound problems and a poorly promoted gig – but those that headed along, me included, left damn impressed as the ease in which he was jumping between house and techno without a …
