Photos from SDV

Thanks again to Catherine Pash for letting me steal her photos

Thanks

Once again thanks for coming down. I’m sorry we didn’t play world in motion. Barnes’s speaking voice (i.e. his non rapping voice) is well weird In other news here are a few photos from IV Thanks to Catherine Pash for the photos

Thomas Köner

I don’t mean to always harp on about the Weather, but it is pretty hot at the moment. A possible antidote, to supplement the simple and necessary act of staying inside with the curtains drawn, is the trio of Thomas Köner albums that Type are reissuing. Labeled unsatisfactorily as ‘Dark Ambient’,  it’s nonetheless a music … Continue reading

Secret Danger V

Tomorrow night we’re hosting the 5th of our nights. It’ll be the 4th at Moustache Bar and the 2nd since going monthly. It would be great to see as many as you there as possible. This time Ollie’s doing the main bit. I caught up with him for a quick chat… While you’re waiting for … Continue reading

Âme: No Déjà Vu

The inclusion of Larry Heard’s creepy-as-hell ‘Déjà Vu’ on the fourth installment of Innervisions’ Secret Weapons series was a masterstroke in maintaining the vitality of an already much-cherished part of the label, but while Kristian Beyer and Frank Wiedemann have almost certainly been inspired by Heard’s tones and textures over the course of their career, … Continue reading

Ferraro is actually alright (Skaters Vs. No one this time round)

I retract my earlier statements . Ferraro never done nothing to nobody. Come check out golden pop winners like this one at Café Oto on Thursday. Rumour has it that the support is going to be pretty pretty good. Details are here

Antena-Camino del Sol

This reissue of Antena’s 1982 record Camino del Sol by Ollie faves the Numero Group is well worth checking out. Antena first appeared on my, ahem, radar when Flaccidtrax gave me a stolen copy of the Permanent Vacation Todd Terje/Joakim split. Terje’s version is the most faithful to the original, bringing out the drums and … Continue reading

New Chart

New Resident Advisor chart. A mix of the old, the unreleased, and the new. You’re sure to hear some of this out at Secret Danger V on June 26th, the event for which is now up here!

New old German stuff: Michael Bundt/Dettmann & Klock

I’m sure that I’d be more critical of today’s reissue culture if I was actually doing the making-and-selling-of-the-music but as nothing more than an enthusiast and occasional DJ it’s difficult to see a glut of quality reissues as anything but a win-win situation. Two very recent reissues, that are, as a certain record shop would … Continue reading

James Ferraro is a dick (Etienne Jaumet Vs. Skaters)

This Tuesday London is spoilt for choice gigs-wise as Ducktails, Etienne Jaumet and Skater’s James Ferraro and Spencer Clark all play the capital. While I’m djing the Etienne Jaumet gig it seems that most people I know are going to see Skaters. They are wrong. Spencer Clark is a cool dude but James Ferraro is … Continue reading
