DJ History Podcast #78

Well, I appear to have contracted some sort of virus. Could even be Lassa Fever for all I know. Or worse. Anyhow, I'm penning this from my sickbed, while my trusty manservant, Jarvis, mops my brow, brings Horlicks at regular intervals (with a shot of Drambuie for good luck) and reads me the letters from today's Daily Telegraph. Life would be worse.

Don't forget next week's how will be hosted by Neville Watson and he did a great job last year so I'm really looking forward to his selections. I am, of course, indisposed at the Electric Elephant where we are doing a few boat parties. This week we've got a classics special with all the releases taken from the forthcoming Happy Days and BackBeats compilations series'.

Yeah, this one's even later than last week. Shameful, I know. But we did have a new book out last week and we've prostituting ourselves in the most outrageous ways to court publicity and get reviews (honestly, the people we've made Frank sleep with this week....).

But it is a really good show, so it's worth knowing what we played, innit? I'm gonna do a old school special on Friday and then next week I'm handing over the reins to Neville Watson who depped for me last year and did a great job, so I'm really looking forward to listening to what he plays when I get back from Croatia (did I mention we were doing a couple of boat parties in the Adriatic next week.... ;))

Check out that Bib Tanga, it's brilliant.

AT ONE - Ashiha (Yoruba)
BEAUTIFUL SWIMMERS - Give It All You Got (Future Times)
AKABU - The Phuture Ain't What It Used To be (Z Records)

Mixcloud's Celebration of Curation

Our buddies at Mixcloud are doing a month's worth of personal curations to celebrate their first birthday and we've been asked to produce a show for it. Ours goes out on Saturday, 7th August, but since we're all clearing off the The Big Chill we figured we'd better get on and mention it now, before it's all tragically late. 

Anyhow, we've done a special show with music taken from the various projects we're involved in, plus a live recording of Hardton (done at low Life last year). It's ace.
