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

All time top 5 house sets

Well not really the all time top 5 – because that would be far too hard to decide. While listening to Dixon’s Body Language 4 for the umpteenth time I started thinking about those go-to sets that you seem to thrash but yet still give you that great sense of comfort and enjoyment years (or hundreds of listens) later.
For me, without doing it consciously, I keep finding I go back to :

Joris Voorn – Resident Advisor Podcast #62
Dixon – Body Language 4
Dennis Ferrer – Essential Mix 27-09-2008
Jackmate – mnml ssgs …

Musical memories, with you for life – Body & Soul

I had an awesome dream last night. On waking up I realised it wasn’t so much a dream, it was me reliving a memory: seeing Body & Soul playing outdoors in Tokyo a few months back. It was a pretty special day, my last in Japan before heading off to Mongolia & Russia for a bit, and getting my first real chance to see some proper house in a long time.
It was an outdoor event under big tents which came in handy with the torrential rain that didn’t let up, but most …

Pop’n’Tuck: Stink-Finger Podcast #04

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 …

Happy New Year!

From myself and I’m sure all the BMP team – happy new year!
Last year ended on a sad musical note for me with the death of one of my favourite Jazz musicians, Freddie Hubbard.  Freddie should be beloved to all house fans for providing the sample on Pepe Bradock’s ‘Deep Burnt’ – surely one of the all time classic deep house records.  This sample comes from the song ‘Little Sunflower’ on Freddie’s 1979 album ‘love connection’ – whenever I find a second hand record store I always check out the …

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 …
