Been a bit quiet on the sounds of the summer here – but the flow of music just doesn’t stop. After quite a bit of back and forthing a stack of vinyl was ordered, assembled and gratefully received at casa del benny.
A highlight of the order is the (slightly) mysterious “Thoughtstream” – by Dices and AEM Rhythm Cascade. The first release on new Scottish label “12th Isle”, the contents are an eclectic mix of hazy ambient, warm synths, and some more beat focused work. Bit …

Sandgrains through my hands

Just a quick post – I’ve been meaning for ages to post up some new favourites – but every day the list of favourites gets longer and the chances of me actually putting together a coherent post gets slimmer. To reduce the slide somewhat I decided to use juno’s chart feature to put together a list of my favourite things from the last month or so..

Who knows, eventually I may manage a longer post with youtube links and maybe one day even a new mix. …

Move D is a man who should need little introduction to the BMP. Great singles released on Workshop, Uzuri, Running Back, the classic ‘Songs from The Beehive’ with Benjamin Brunn on Smallville, and (bound to impress some of the more aged BMPers), several releases on mid 90s warp records. So it goes without saying that I’m looking forward to his gig here in Tokyo in a few weeks. I thought I might focus on the support lineup all of who are also doing good things.
DJ Nobu seems to organise and …

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 …

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 …

Fill your pockets

I thought it was probably about time I posted some mixes that I’ve been enjoying of late. It’s been awhile.
