Sandgrains through my hands

Just a quick post – I’ve been meaning for ages to post up some new favourites – but every day the list of favourites gets longer and the chances of me actually putting together a coherent post gets slimmer. To reduce the slide somewhat I decided to use juno’s chart feature to put together a list of my favourite things from the last month or so..

Who knows, eventually I may manage a longer post with youtube links and maybe one day even a new mix. …

Great singles released on Workshop, Uzuri, Running Back, the classic ‘Songs from The Beehive’ with Benjamin Brunn on Smallville, and (bound to impress some of the more aged BMPers), several releases on mid 90s warp records. So it goes without saying that I’m looking forward to his gig here in Tokyo in a few weeks. I thought I might focus on the support lineup all of who are also doing good things.

Tim Sweeney’s BiS has been on form lately with heaps of decent mixes from the likes of Shit Robot, Horse Meat Disco, Tiger and Woods, Joakim this weeks show was James Murphy and it’s grand! Next week, Four Tet.

Mark E - The Day

I seem to have a bit of a soft spot for most things Mark E puts his name to, and find his work particularly well suited to lazy afternoons. Something I take extremely seriously. This new slow-burner off his new LP “Stonebreaker” on Spectral Sound definitely fits that bill.
