Being old, lazy and frightened of people I never leave my keyboard and as such its still January and already I have not going to gig regrets… well not really.
Thankfully sometimes some GC steps in and helps alleviate my poor life choices in a small way…

The first couple of hours of an five hour set from Optimo – until the recorder stops.
Recorded live at Whammy Bar, Auckland on 06 Jan 2017.

I dig mixes… and its been a good couple of weeks for new ones in my internet world… though it was a no brainer on what to pick this week as my pick of them all… why cause Rob’s a friend and a jolly decent bloke… and pretty ace selector and DJ to boot!
I suggest you read the interview too, cause Rob has a lot to say about a host of things 🙂

Was listening to some old mixes today and the idea of some of the places that i enjoyed music the most over my life struck me.

Friday Nights at Inmusic, with the ever changing cast …

Been a bit quiet on the sounds of the summer here – but the flow of music just doesn’t stop. After quite a bit of back and forthing a stack of vinyl was ordered, assembled and gratefully received at casa del benny.

Super busy and every time I think of doing something to put up here (new mix, new chart, new blather) I don’t have enough time, so I figure lets just roll out some individual tunes I like from time to time and see how we go.
Recently been digging Fast Moving Cars forthcoming on Blackest Ever Black. Digging the dubwise production and detached delivery, bonus video of Carla(?) going swimming presumably somewhere in Australia – there might be crocs in that water.

‘Fast Moving Cars’: the debut solo single from Carla dal …
