More hitters from on form labels Livity Sound and Whities again in 2018. Rekids also released a heap of bangers.
Some highlights from some records I picked up in this playlist:

Favourite YouTube discovery of the year is David Portnoy’s daily Pizza Reviews around NYC and the East Coast. One bite, everybody knows the rules.

These reviews were previously uploaded on the Barstool Sports account. Bill Burrs included:

Stand Up highlight was probably Bert Kreischer Secret Time – tempted to go see him when he comes to Auckland in June.

Favourite podcast is still Your …

Here’s a playlist of some of my favourite record pickups from last year.
Great year for the label Whities.
I was underwhelmed with the Superpitcher LP, released as 24 tracks over the 12 months with 1 12″ per month. The only stand out for me was the track Brothers.
Expect to hear some of these out the back of mine this Summer!

Perhaps its the new year, perhaps its my age and general fuck it I can’t be arsed attitude or perhaps it is the gremlins in the soundcloud bunkers but fucked if I can find the mixes on that platform as I did last year – I’m blaming the code cause why blame yourself when there are virtual objects in play… so my discovery of mixes so far this year has been less than satisfactory – especially given my new year back to work blues. All of this isn’t helped by the …

With days to go til work finishes for the year,
Until santa comes to spread his christmas cheer,
Until its time to go,
And wish there was snow,
Fuck you and happy new year!
 
Yellowman (aka Winston Foster) was the deejaying sensation of the early eighties. With his inventive and amusing lyrics he achieved the status of superstar. The fact that he was an albino (an outcast in Jamaica) made his early years more difficult than anyone outside of Jamaica can possibly imagine. He endlessly boasted about how sexy, attractive and appealing he was to the opposite …

One of my personal musical heroes passed away this week – its been a year of losing too many musical gods… he wasn’t a musician, pop star or shredder of instruments… he was a humble DJ a spinner of tunes and his way of playing records and his taste defines so much of what makes DJ culture something to cherish…
Mancuso was always the most complex and anomalous of dance music’s early-70s pioneers. He defined the latter-day notion of a DJ not as someone who played records, but as someone who …

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.
They mostly aren’t the nightclubs and venues for me.
Sitting in Geezer Guy’s lounge being schooled on Dnb, dub and weird stuff. Such a great place to just soak it in listening to one of my fave djs with Stinky Jim and Mark Burgess chipping in. This is where i first heard Super Discount and Rhythm & Sound.
Friday Nights at Inmusic, with the ever changing cast …

August 2016 Heatwave edition of Frequency Sequence from Lelo is a cracker, naturally.
So get up off your butt and dance to the music you hear…
