Popular People's Front at T-Bar this Friday

Yeah kids, it's the first ever Popular People's Front gig, by the mysteriously unmysterious PPF gang (the names on the flyer give it away a bit). Anyhow, should be top banana, feel free to come down with your klaxons, whistles and trumpets to kickstart the bank holiday weekend in fine style.

DJ History Podcast #61

Oooh it's a scorcher. Well, it's not really, but it is sunny and, if you wear a jumper, you could almost believe it's summer.

We've got a scorcher of a show for you, too. Loads of as-yet-unreleased shizzle, a tribute to Guru and an edit from our departed friend Adam Goldstone, whose hard-drive I've been digging through to find interesting stuff (we may do a release of some of this stuff at some stage, at the behest of his family).

Anyhow, here's the tracklist:

JOHN TALABOT - Matilda's Dream (Permanent Vacation)
RITUAL - Sore Lip (Zedd)
SAALIM - Snowfall Tribe Yin (Feelin Alright)
Z FACTOR - Makes You Crazy (Joey Negro Club Mix) (Zedd)
RON BASEJAM - For The People, By The People (Ashley Beedle)
ARCHIE BRONSON OUTFIT - Chunk (6th Borough Project Remix) (Domino)
CHAS JANKEL - No 1 (Adam Goldstone Edit)

CRAZY PENIS - Smoovin' Groovin'  (Mang's Dumpy Re-Rub) (CD-R)
GANG STARR - Skills (Virgin)

DJ History Podcast #60

What a bloomin' tracklisting this is. They'll be talking about it in years to come, on BBC2's Whatever Happened To The Noughties. Fearne Cotton will probably burst into tears as she remembers it as the day she realised she had really bad taste in music and decided to stop talking crap on Radio 1.

Here it is. Read it and weep, Fearne!

THE KRAYS FT. EBONY BONES - We're Ready When You Are (DJ Mehdi Remix) (Abracadabra)
CAGE & AVIARY - Friday 14th ptIII (LA Mix) (CD-R)

ICHISAN & NAKOVA - Pionir (Lusty Zanzibar Remix) (Nang Records)
MIM SULEIMAN - Nyuli (Running Back)
MARK E - Special FX (Merc)
FARLEY JACKMASTER FUNK - Farley Knows House (PPF Jack For Daze Dub) (HArmless)
MICHOACAN - In The Dark Of The Night (Clap Rules Mix) (DFA)
HUNGRY GHOSTS - Illuminations (Ashley Beedle Dub The Light Remix) (International Feel)

Secret Weapons vs. ///Shift at Horse & Groom, Fri 16th April

Here we go again with round two of our new Friday night shimmy at the Horse and Groom.
The next party is a week today, April 16th to be exact, and will again be in conjunction with the chaps from ///Shift.  As always we have a bloody brilliant line up including the Essex-French juggernaut that is Namedrop and Benoit, the old woman that lives in the shoe, our Billie B; intrepid south-of-the-river adventurer, Jonny 5 and special guest Toby Tobias.
Oh and it's FREE if you get there early enough. Ye word, it's almost beyond belief..
