Tons of stuff coming up and coming out but I'm already ahead of myself. As promised here's a few tid bits from the last fewweeks:
A Silent Flute has been linked to the Fully Fitted page for a minute now. I originally knew it as a blog of crazy obscure videos and amazing gems raked from the depths of youtube, but with his entry into the Live At Home archive I found it also a destination of some solid mixtapes. All sorts synthed out 80's, crazy disco, and movie score interludes make these mixes equally as gem worthy as ASF's youtube finds. We heard a the a little bit of his most recent mix Vector Dance in the program two weeks ago.
On to Ryan Durkin, doing big things and blowing up the indie hip hop mixtape circuit with the lead cut on Outasight's From There To Here (an album prequal). We heard "People, Places, Things" in the program. Hit up Outasight's myspace to download the entire mix. You might remember Durknasty from his appearance on Mofo way back when. Or from various mentions on this blog and DJ gigs we play together. Find us at Joseph's Pizza late night if nowhere else!
And there's a whole mess or records I've been meaning to rip and share but where's the time really!? Lately I've been indulging hard in everyone else on the internet's efforts. I'll find time to give back someday I swear. For now, onward to bigger things starting with this weekend, tune in tomorrow night and watch this space to find out more!
Mofo's been going strong. Check the playlists from two week's ago and last week. Had a bunch of what you might call "trip hop" records in hand last week having rushed to the studio after opening for Tricky. As in THE Tricky yah no joke! It was a fun time. Got to play some weird stuff as people were arriving. Busted out all the 90's Ninjatune, Mowax and Warp I had. I'm maybe a half a generation too late on the original Tricky but I figured that'd be a good fit. Played some new beats as well and stayed for the first few Tricky songs which were intense. Full band and massive shoegazery synth and guitar lines. I guess his new album is getting attention but I bet he still makes a fair amount of bank off of Overcome (video above).
Aaaaanway, a quick re-holler at the Reggae Two Shots going up at Fully Fitted (a particularly duby edition this week). And I've also been really digging on some DJ "edits" floating around on the internet these days including Eli's Vitamin C re-edit and U-Tern's Pretty Young Thing demo edit. Plenty funky all around.
Expect some more vinyl tune tryouts and latest from the webs again this evening. Brand new stuff from Ryan Durkin and A Silent Flute I'd like to blog in more detail on the follow up entry. For now you'll have to tune in tonight to get my take on it. See you then!
