Stuck In My Head

Aryze - A-Sides
Enigma (Calibre Remix) - Break
Bodies - Kode 9 & The Spaceape
Silent Cry (Gerico) - A Guy Called Gerald
Near Dark - Burial
Like A Pen - The Knife
Amazordum - Ricardo Villalobos

The detached/lonely vocals in some of these tunes do very strange things to me.

Note to self: I need to update this thing more.

Completely satisfied

So last night we all headed down to East Village for Dub Files with Caspa, Rusko, Benga, Skream, N-Type, Hatcha and others all playing. Good crowd, amazing music and a dubstep remix of Junior Spesh. What more could anyone ask for????

Sunrise Retox Mix

A couple of days I downloaded this dubstep mix from and although at times its quite hit and miss, when it hits it hits HARD. Really mellow, lots of nice bass sounds and some amazing synth lines.

Highlights: approx 10 mins in, 20 mins in and 40 mins in.

Check it out.

Flying Lotus - L.A. 1 x 3 EP Review

Here is a fact:

Most instrumental hip-hop sucks.

Unlike most instrumental hip-hop. Flying Lotus doesn't. This new EP (one out of a series of three) contains beats so organic you can buy them in Whole Foods and a sound so unbelievably stylish and cool that after hearing it you go to bed at night praying that when you wake up, you are FlyLo's new best friend.

Best Track: Rickshaw

Less Is More

Minimal playlist

1. Stanny Franssen - The 751th Day
2. Gui Boratto & Martin Eyerer - The Beach
3. DJ Koze - Estrella
4. Ricardo Tobar - El Sunset
5. Peter Grummich - Therapy
6. Trentemoller - Gush
7. The Field - A Paw In My Face
8. Kunststoff - Unleashed
9. Gui Boratto - U Bahn
10. Extrawelt - Soopertrack

Thanks to everyone who has introduced me to this music over the past few months.

So this weekend I'm moving out of my flat in West Ken into a house in King's Cross which saddens me greatly even though I'm looking forward to moving into my new place. I guess I'm upset because this area of London is the only place that has ever really felt like "home" to me, the only place that I've lived that I have felt a strong bond of attachment to. It's a great area: a quiet, friendly neighbourhood with a really strong sense of community. Plus, I have had some truely amazing times here, times that I will never forget for as long as I live. There will always be a place in my heart for West Ken.

Its been amazing.

Sad times

Hello Darkness My Old Friend.

Lost for words. Unfortunately, its sold out.

Teaching kids to drive-by

WOW! Words cannot describe how much I want one of these bad boys.
Whoever thought of a water-uzi seriously needs to get some kind of Nobel Prize. Amazing.
Apparently it shoots water up to 10ft and has roughly 50 shots in it so nuff fools gonna get iced.
You can get yourself one of these tasty little treats here.

Smile around the face.

So yesterday I stumbled across a bunch of DJ mixes that Four Tet/Kieran Hebden has done for a couple of websites and they are beyond incredible. The variety of genres and artists that he displays on a single mix is staggering. I strongly suggest that people check this out no matter what your into. 

There are two from Allez-Allez:

And one from Beats In Space:

Computer Love

For the past few years I have been getting by using a very very old laptop and about a month ago it completely packed in so this gave me a perfect excuse to get a new one and I am now the proud owner of a MacBook Pro. The reason I am so excited about this (aside from the joys of Photo Booth) is the fact that I now have Logic which means I can start making music again. I have been waiting for almost 3 years to get my hands on a copy of Logic and finally I have it so, as you can imagine, I am in seventh heaven.

Music is being made as we speak and hopefully I'll have some tracks completely finished and posted within the next couple of weeks

He may be a genius writer but this video truly shows how much of a bastard Chuck Bukowski was.

We are spanning time.

Ok, so everyone knows that Vincent Gallo is reknowned for being an arrogant, self-absorbed shithead but, man, is he cool. I mean, not many people can come away from making "the worst film ever to be shown at Cannes" with credibility still intact (even though the re-cut version of Brown Bunny is supposed to be amazing). Plus... I kind of wish I looked like him.

"All my paper's legit"

I just saw this video on MTV and it made me remember how fucking amazing it is. See, I pretty much think Jay-Z is a bit of a cock but this video and song together are badass. Even Vincent Gallo is in it... so it must be cool.

Insomniac Doze

So recently my sleeping pattern has been fucked up and its driving me crazy.
Its taking me on average of between 2 to 4 hours to get to sleep at night and that means I wake up far too late, leaving me feeling guilty about wasting the day.

I need sleeping tips. FAST
I need to stop worrying.
