It isn’t house but it is a thing.

There are some things on in Auckland this weekend.
Tomorrow night (friday 15) I venture into the rain to play at the supperclub on Beresford square. I like supper – despite having a dodgy rep (thanks mainly to the antics of late morning up all night mentalist partygoers) it is generally a relaxed place where you can pretty much play whatever music you like. On an early evening in summer there are few better places in Auckland to be. On a night like tomorrow promises to be I …

Music so bad its good

Us resident stink fingerites have seriously sound music taste, we are taste makers… what we like is always worth checking out if not grabbing somewhere somehow – modest much… fuck that shit we are musical gods… worship us!
Yet even we the pillars of good taste and fashionable trouser suits sometimes get it wrong – or did we…
Every now and then one stumbles upon a album or artist whose work is so shockingly bad on every musicial level that it is actually rather good, sometimes brilliant.
So with this thought firmly planted …

Christian Gangster Rap and High Energy Deep House

Let me just start by saying, praise jebus for music. In the bleakness that has been the last few weeks down this end of the world, holding onto sanity has been difficult of late, so I’ve been thankful for a few things that have been warming my spirit.
I’m not using the term “music” loosely here, I’m talking about that stuff that can instantly change your mood, make you remember, put you in another place…..or simply “fix” you. Last week I saw “Respect Yourself – The Stax Records Story” at the …

Quarion in Auckland

Quarion from Drumpoet Community will be gracing Auckland next weekend (Saturday June 28th), playing (the most unlikely of clubs) Khuja Lounge.
I’m pretty excited about this, as drumpoet seems to be somewhat of an unhealthy obsession of mine at the moment (for those interested, checkout Drumpoems Verse 1 which is a collection of some of the drumpoet releases featuring Quarion, Manuel Tur, Soultourist, Kawabata and Sasha Dive to name a few).
I found a recent Quarion set from last month over here which aint too bad at all.
Art Bleek – Modern spaces …

Listen to this

So I figure its probably about time I post something as well and what better way that by posting a couple of mixes that are making me close my eyes, grin and think life is pretty bloody good.
First up is Manuel Tur, who is also one of my favourite producers so far this year. I can’t seem to get enough of his deep take on house (plus he seems to share my love of stabby keys). I’m not too sure where this set came from, but its damn good proper …

On the house front

To silence the Old man’s moaning yesterday, heres a lil something from the other old man of BMP…. I am loving the new deep house vibe coming outta Europe championed by such super dj types as :
Cassy
Her live at panorama bar mixes have been untouchable, as has her Ibiza voice podcast

I managed to get a 4.5hr mix of hers @ Zukunft 11-01-08, which at no point gets anything other than awe inspiring, you should find this… it will complete you.
Johnny D
To go with his outstanding form in the field of …
