Season 3 of New Zealand’s Next Top Model kicked off on friday. Being a follower of the previous 2 seasons I’m hoping that this one will be similarly entertaining, and may even keep the ‘finger appraised of my thoughts from time to time.. The first episode was the usual first episode cavalcade of screaming wannabe models, micro clips and voice-overs to establish the models’ identities. Amongst all this it was hard to establish any real favourites. I’m hopeful that Bianca (who brought her lucky lizard to …

Mixes I’m digging

Nothing special today, just a few mixes I’ve picked up over the past few weeks.

Kicking off in house territories, little white earbuds has an interesting interview and mix from Tin Man. I’d heard a little of Tin Man’s stuff, being aware of him from the start of Tama Sumo’s Panorama Bar Cd from a few years back. He has an interesting production style, and this is an enjoyable wee mix. Check it out.
Tin Man-LWE78
Moving into somewhat heavier realms, new producer Blawan has been making some waves. …

New records

To distract myself from the horrible situation down in Chch at the moment, here’s a few of the new releases I’m liking the sounds of. Juno or youtube links where possible.
First up, you can’t really argue with Millions of Moments re-release of ‘wallshaker’ by Aaron Carl, who sadly passed away last year. I think this one is a favourite of Micks.. The great original is accompanied by a midnight dub, and a beautifully deep sounding dub from ‘Sven’, presumably Sven Weissemann who is doing some lovely …

The XX double cross

I’ve been pretty slack in the links of late, but these two mixes from Jamie of the XX are both well ace.

Neo post dubstep with a wobble tech garage vocal tip.

More or less a Sunday night for me

Due to my schedule Monday’s are generally a lazy day often passed in a drunken haze.
Here’s 5 records I like to accompany the haze

Music I like!

Lazy youtubery post sorry!
Some musical enthusiasms of recent times:
This summer has been the summer of Dam Funk!

Untold brings yet another piece of awesome:

Beautiful work as usual from wax (who apparently has now pretty much been revealed to be shed):

Listening to James Blake really loud is a necessary pleasure but I think it made me hurt my neck:

Joy Orbison, best name twisting since Jichael Mackson, and some great music too!:

Lil Silva – ‘Different’ – its heavy!:

Michel Cleis – ‘Dark Glasses’ – lots of drums happening:

I’m pretty much consistently excited about music …

Frustration and addiction

These last 6 months have been frustrating as fuck for me! Saving, traveling, being broke, and having my records and turntables all packed away have combined to make it an extremely disjointed year in terms of record purchases.
This would be easier to bear if it wasn’t so easy to monitor all the great and interesting music that is still coming out. Subsequently I am still stashing records into a wishlist in the vain hopes that I can go back at some point in the future and purchase some …

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 …
