DJ History Podcast #108

As I write this, I have just put two small people into their beds and I'm gearing up for a weekend up in Glasgow, which I'm really looking forward to. Firstly, there's the small matter of a relegation dogfight with St Mirren v Hamilton, in which the Accies will inevitably succumb to the superior firepower and black and white striped shirts of the Buddies. Then, in the evening, it's Melting Pot's 10th anniversary. I was lucky enough to play at the very first MP ten years ago, in the Riverside Club (a brilliant venue! and I can even remember some of the tunes I played that night and they may well get taken out of mothballs for Saturday. Either way, I think it's going to be a special night.

I had so many good records to play on this show I had hold back at least half of them for next week, which I'm just preparing now (as well as dinner). Again, some great stuff here, including a brilliant new Todd Terje single (we played together last weekend in Jersey and he gave me an even better track, which will be on next week's podcast).

LITTLE BARRIE - Dream To Live (Bumpman)

DJ History Podcast #106

Been sent some really good albums lately, some of which appear right here (like the Dennis Coffey and the Audiofly). In fact, dare I venture to suggest it has been a good year so far for the ol' album? I believe I might. Anyhow, what with the Wildcookie (an essential, if you ask me, which you're not, but listen on anyway....), Gatto Fritto, Space Invadas (this has some not so good stuff on it, but is more than compensated by the good uns). You can check out a track from the excellent Audiofly album on here. It's really really good. I'll be boring everyone for a few weeks about this. Feel free to join me.

ELECTRIC SMOKE - Freak It Out (The Revenge Edit) (Zedd)
ALBERT - Can't Lie Still (Studio Rockers)
AUDIOFLY - Fela (Get Physical)
PROVIANT AUDIO - Hey Let's Do It (Paper) (Jay Shepheard Mix)
JAMIE BLANCO - Black Jack (CD-R)
JR SEATON - In Your Mask I See A Better Person
THE STEPKIDS - La La (Stones Throw)
MAIN STEM - Kountry Klubb
EMIKA - Count Backwards (Marcel Dettmann Vocal Edit) (Ninja Tune)
AMERICA - Are You There (Ole Smokey Edit) (KAT)
