“Chrome Vox” – Tropic Of Cancer – From ‘The End of All Things’
Jazz is one of my favourite musical genres but I don’t post a lot about it on here. Jazz has such a long history and such a large amount of writing has been done on it, it feels a bit intimidating for me to talk about it. No such qualms about playing it though, and a few weeks ago I finally took advantage of the recording setup at my new home to pull out some of my favourites for a mix which has been up on my soundcloud and now …
A lot can be said for MP3’s.
They’re free! Easy and instant to obtain.
But there’s one thing that has to be said for vinyl. That is, it’s the most sociable way to play and listen to music with a bunch of mates.
On Sunday 12 September, Bob, Scott and myself sat around skyped Benny, drank beer and played records! Possibly unbeknown to the other two i was recording the set and here’s the result. It’s actually only Bob playing (the MD only recorded the first 80 minutes) but I hope Bob’s going …

This is a mix I did for the biggie.co.nz House Forum Mix-Off.
The guidelines for the creation of the mix were:
Mixes are limited to 45 minutes each like half a T90 tape. If you go over, listeners will encouraged to stop listening at the 45 minute mark to turn the tape over.
Mixes can be made in any way you see fit on any medium.
House is a feeling, so stray where you will genre-wise but beware that by venturing into particularly niche territory you may give the game away.

Cosas Grandes is lubricatedly brought to you by the insideout rolls at Samurai Sushi, pushing your dog in a pram up Oxford Street, bootygurn, the smell of petrol, eternally quivering okonomiyaki and takoyaki shaving garnish, 8am harvey wallbangers, haloumi cheese n’ fresh lime; and would not have been possible without the House and Techno music of jungles, bunkers, squats, favelas, Fubars, Womb, Lov.e, helicopter pads, Cobb Valleys, K Roads, Big Glass Boats and Hawkes Bay vineyards worldwide.
Beanfield feat. Bajka – Tides (Carl Craig mix)
Paul Ritch – Back to the Time
A lot can change in 2 years! At the start of 2007, I was living in an old house near a vaguely dodgy part of Auckland’s CBD. The BMP was an as yet unacquainted and unincorporated group of disparate figures who had not yet discovered a mutual enjoyment for the triplicate vices of Beer, MUSIC, and Pizza. My friend Mike, (aka Mick ‘the kid’) was living in Mt Albert near what I personally consider one of Auckland’s best cafes, so most weekends would see me grabbing a pile of records …
