DJ History Podcast #66

Last week it was shorts and barbeques, this week it's back to the dufflecoats and umbrellas. I love the British weather.

Anyhow, we've got some proper scorchers in the show this week, including new singles from Aeroplane (a bit cod reggae, can't make my mind up about it) and Andy Bell of Erasure (surprisingly ace).

HOTEL MOTEL - Donna Nook (CD-R)
ALLEZ-ALLEZ - Hideous Racket (Rvng Intl)
CHRISTOPHE - Make A Mark (Lukas Family Affair Mix) (Redux)
AZARI & III - Reckless With Your Love (Neville Watson Mix)
LOPEZ - Zapping (Keep Up)
ANDY BELL - Call On Me (Vince Clarke Mix) (Mute)
TJ KONG & NUNO DOS SANTOS FT. ROBERT OWENS - Where Were You (Kirk Degiorgio Remix) (Compost)

DJ History Podcast #65

Hello campers. Well, in between furiously putting the latest podcast together, I've been sneakily looking on eBay for a barbeque grill to make the most of what will probably turn out to be the only good weekend of the summer (such is life in the UK). I've fired up the paddling pool (I"m on a promise to my daughter) and in between that I've been pumping out some brilliant stuff I've been sent and bought recently.

Here's the chart:

HOTEL MOTEL - Chocolate City (CD-R)
MUSHROOMS PROJECT - Tropikal Mushrooms (Phoreski Mix) (Under The Shade)
BANDA LOS HIJOS DE NINA LUZ - Dejala Corre (Soundway)
JOY DIVISION - Disorder (Factory)
EVERYTHING EVERYTHING -Schoolin' (Leo Zero Wigwam Mix)
HOLY GHOST - Static On The Wire (DFA)
GERALDO PINO - African Hustle (Academy)
X-PRESS 2 - Down the Whole (Shorter Club Version) (Skint)
