Here’s a wee bit of summer listening for all a ya’ll.

Ferry cross the Mersey - Pat Metheny

Here comes the sun - Nina Simone
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 …
been ages since we had any music up here sooo….
Brennan Green Xlr8 Podcast
Here’s a mix for all the people who loved Appleblim’s Ronsefmmix last year, its sorta like
that but much much much better (it doesn’t stop and turn into dubstep half way). Also it
will make you like songs by people you hate. Ask Bob about his Brusce Springsteen shame!
this stufff still doesn’ have a name and thats briliant, cos when it des it will die
to me its the new Funki house!!
The organisers of DEMF 08 are streaming some of the sets from last years event here: http://www.paxahau.com/sounds/mp3/2008_movement.html

Second one comes from Robert Johnson last year…..equally as good.
Move D @ Robert Johnson (22/12/07)
Let me just start by saying, praise jebus for music. In the bleakness that has been the last few weeks down this end of the world, holding onto sanity has been difficult of late, so I’ve been thankful for a few things that have been warming my spirit.
I’m not using the term “music” loosely here, I’m talking about that stuff that can instantly change your mood, make you remember, put you in another place…..or simply “fix” you. Last week I saw “Respect Yourself – The Stax Records Story” at the …
Quarion from Drumpoet Community will be gracing Auckland next weekend (Saturday June 28th), playing (the most unlikely of clubs) Khuja Lounge.
I’m pretty excited about this, as drumpoet seems to be somewhat of an unhealthy obsession of mine at the moment (for those interested, checkout Drumpoems Verse 1 which is a collection of some of the drumpoet releases featuring Quarion, Manuel Tur, Soultourist, Kawabata and Sasha Dive to name a few).
I found a recent Quarion set from last month over here which aint too bad at all.
Art Bleek – Modern spaces …
So I figure its probably about time I post something as well and what better way that by posting a couple of mixes that are making me close my eyes, grin and think life is pretty bloody good.
First up is Manuel Tur, who is also one of my favourite producers so far this year. I can’t seem to get enough of his deep take on house (plus he seems to share my love of stabby keys). I’m not too sure where this set came from, but its damn good proper …
To silence the Old man’s moaning yesterday, heres a lil something from the other old man of BMP…. I am loving the new deep house vibe coming outta Europe championed by such super dj types as :
Her live at panorama bar mixes have been untouchable, as has her Ibiza voice podcast
I managed to get a 4.5hr mix of hers @ Zukunft 11-01-08, which at no point gets anything other than awe inspiring, you should find this… it will complete you.
To go with his outstanding form in the field of …
