Pop’n’Tuck: Stink-Finger Podcast #04

Written by: 23 February 2009 2 Comments

Pop n Tuck

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 and heading out to his flat to piss about mixing records (usually two for two), drinking beer and eating pizza (notice a pattern?).

Pop’n’tuck emerged from around that time and is one of the rare occasions where one (or both) of us didn’t fuck up the mix too badly.  We were both happy with the mix and it garnered some pretty positive comments so we’ve brought it back to give it a good home as a stinkfinger podcast.

The tracks themselves are kinda reflective of the times, with nothing that has dated too badly (yet) in my opinion, and a nice mix of minimal with housier influenced tracks.  Mick kicks the mix off smoothly with ‘Born Again’ hitting into some Jazzanova touched percussion.  The euro influence continues with some early Mountain People and Matthias Kaden works, followed by a triple hit of fairly minimal business from Guido Schneider, M.I.A, and Alejandro Vivanco.  Milton Jackson leads into possibly my favourite track on the mix, Jennifer Cardini and Shonky’s heavy and deep ‘lies’.  Things take a housier turn, and I don’t apologise for the inclusion of Dj Fame’s ‘Name it X’, it is a fun track!   Mick keeps it funky with Dj Sneak and Jesse Rose tracks, before Basic Channel’s ur-minimal classic ‘phylyps track II’ rounds things out.

Time passed by, the BMP formed, stink-finger was created, Mick now lives in London, and I moved to Japan, but I think this mix is still a good reflection of where our musical attitudes continue to lie – house and techno.
