Film fest faves and best mix of the year
The fourth instalment of the Bob’s best movies from various Film Festival’s I attended is about to unspool here on da finga! With a mix of international award-winners, crowd favourites, and shocks, this year’s films feature a star-studded line up of cinematic treats that dive directly into Bob’s world of culture, humour, and tradition.
And people thought celebrating life thru death was confined to netflix.
Coldly entranced, rattling bones and itchy feet need a dancin’ treat from beneath 6 feet. Wildly entombed, my coffin wishes to hack me out of dirt layered lungs and bellow me out into the misanthropic world of fresh air & strange living things? I refuse, my filthy, familiar bed of splintered wood and welcoming dust, I must not leave! But do I hear; what’s THIS* Am I mistaken? I’m still alive! What a mix…
Actually to be honest and fair I don’t do end of year lists nor film fest faves… but I got ya attention eh, Mick?
This weeks pick of mix that had me enthralled is BN1’s Bennybangs which due to security reasons I can’t link to nor really include.. but by god it bangs and moves and is a really great listen – honourable mention to the latest instalment of Websta bangers too.
In the public realm its been the Dekmantel Helena Hauff podcast, it sits quite nicely with BN1’s actually… you could play them back to back while dancing in ya undies in the rain…
It is with great pleasure that we present to you our 100th podcast. Over the course of the series we like to think we have mixed up big names with the stars of tomorrow; have shined a light on lesser known DJs who deserve the limelight and given pride of place to people with their own distinctive sounds. One such artist is Helena Hauff, the DJ turned producer who cut her teeth at the legendary Golden Pudel in Hamburg. Though she is a DJ first and foremost, her recorded material on labels like Werk Discs and Handmade Birds has never been less than arresting thanks to its dystopian blend of electro and techno moods and grooves.
This mix she has done for us is just the same: it is ninety minutes of elastic electro, popping techno and slithering electronics that are shiny and metallic, crisp and futuristic. It will push and pull you in many different directions but is all tied together by an infectious sense of slick robo-funk. Right up there with electro greats like Drexcyia and I-F, Helena Hauff is a suitably singular artist to helm this landmark podcast.
If I made new year lotto win promises mine would be that if I suddenly become stupid rich I’d take the team to Amsterdam and we’d go to Dekmantel the club – or maybe go hog wild and do their annual festival… such is the happy their weekly musical fix has brought me… a lotto win would make me happy to.
