DJ History Podcast #112

This one has got some wowsers in it. That Soul Jazz compilation, for starters, is dead good (Delta Swam Funk, since you're asking) and you can hear two of the tracks on this show. There's also a tune from the new - good - Metronomy album, which reminds me a bit of Phoenix, which is surely never a bad thing in anyone's universe. Apart from Simon Cowell who has probably never heard of either of them, the elasticated trouser-wearing sap.

COYOTE – Material Dub (Is It Balearic?)
BOZ SCAGGS – I'll Be Long Gone (Soul Jazz)
BOHANNON - Ultimate (Gino Grasso Edit)
AFRICAN HEADCHARGE – Mysterious Happenings (On-U-Sound)
POLLYESTER - You Are Amen (Permanent Vacation)
COYOTE - Always (Neville Watson House Dub)
IN FLAGRANTI - The End Of The Road (Codek)
METRONOMY - She Wants (Because)
DUANE AND GREGG ALLMAN - Morning Dew (Soul Jazz)

DJ History Podcast #111

This is the tracklist for the show transmitted from a Hackney tower block (metaphorically speaking) last Friday 15th April. It contains stuff like Mazarati, an old Prince production that I edited several years ago and you can now download for free if you go here >

Also on the show is the wonderful Pollyester, Debukas, Tokimonsta (shit name, great act) and Locussolus. Incidentally, the Blancmange remix featured here, which is now on sale on a lovely 12-inch single, was the prelude to a remix competition we will be running shortly for the utterly ace 'Feel Me', an old Mark Moore fave tune and one of mine, too. Stay tuned for details.

MAZARATI - 100mph (BB edit)
TOKIMONSTA - Bright Shadows (Brainfeeder)
POLLYESTER - Voices (Permanent Vacation)
TIGER & WOODS – Dr. Burner (Running Back)
DEBUKAS – Pointers (2020)
RONIKA - Forget Yourself (Record Shop)
LOCUSSOLUS - Little Boots (Emperor Machine Special Edit) (IFeel)
BLANCMANGE - The Western (Cage & Aviary Mix)

DJ History Podcast #110

Well, the summer appears to be over already. Oh well. There's always next year. Or abroad. It's half-term this week so I've been wrangling small children in between trying to do a spot of work. I played at East Village last Saturday, first tine for a while, and I really like what they've done with the upstairs room. The DJ booth is in a much better place now. Things that sounded good: Footprintz and the Todd Terje mix of Bjørn Torske.

You can hear the Footprintz on the latest show. I've played it before, but it's just a really great song and typically moody production from Ewan Pearson. It's not a banger by any means, but it's got something about it that makes it timeless. It's also great to see the return of Eric Kupper, whose 'Bloom' is forthcoming on Wave Music shortly. I was friendly with Eric when I lived in New York and he's always been a lovely down-to-earth guy (he and I once went out for dinner with Dannii Minogue, you know. Oh the pop star stories I could tell you!).

ERIC KUPPER - Bloom (Wave Music)
POLLYESTER - Pikant (Permanent Vacation)
CATALEPSIA - Dope Menace (Hardway Bros Dalston Housin' Authority Mix)
LOCUSSOLUS - Gunship (Andrew Weatherall Remix) (IFeel).wav
MARK E - Special FX (Ghostly International)
TUNDE MABADU - Viva Disco (Strut)
ALAIN HO - I Remember The Future (Buzzin Fly)
MY HERO RADIO - Tom's Diner
FOOTPRINTZ - Utopia (Ewan Pearson's The Legend of Bolo Brown Re-Trip) (Visionquest)
