The good folk at www.ungradio.com invited me to do a DJ set last night. You can stream and download the whole thing from here.
The “New Build - Medication” remix that I did a while ago has been found by New Build and mercifully rather than them wanting to beat me up for besmirching their masterpiece they seem to kind of like it and have posted it on their soundcloud site. You can find it on their page above with all the tunes from their most excellent recent album (I bought it on vinyl and thoroughlty enjoyed it).
Putting the finishing touches to one of my own tunes and remain hopeful that I will have it done in the next couple of weeks.
Last week one of my own tunes was on this show this week none of mine are but the show is still awesome! As ever there’s a really well researched set of tunes in there - you can also download from the soundcloud page above so you can consume the broadcast as and when you wish.
I am ten days off the pace here but you can download the most recent Reid tune for free from XLR8R - you can get the link underneath the tune in soundcloud. Just trying to do my tiny bit to spread the gospel of the Irish electronic scene.
I only found out today that Reid is in a band called Zombie Computer (I may just be demonstrating how little I know) - he seems to still be doing both and going well on the 2 fronts…..I hate people like that.
I went to see SBTRKT on Sunday night at the Acamdemy in Dublin - they were absolutely brilliant. Sampha’s voice live is as smooth as it is on the album but the highglight had to be SBTRKT’s live drumming - he is an absolutely obscene drummer as the above video hopefully demonstrates.
If these guys are coming through your town I strongly advise going to see them, it was one of the most impressive live set-ups for an “electronic” act that I’ve ever seen - really pushing things more than the army of goons who get up there with a laptop and a midi controller.
Thinktoy who hosts his own electronica show on RTE 2XM was kind enough to play violent silence on his show in the last week. The tune drops in around 25 mins but I would recommend listening to the whole thing - great mixture of old and new and a fairly definitive source of sounds for anyone who has even a passing interest in electronica.
Thanks again Thinktoy.
I just wanted to say a big thank you to “The Point of Everything” who posted on his blog about “Sand Hands” - much indebted, particularly as he was complimentary!
For those of you who aren’t familiar with the blog I suggest you get over there and check it out its a particularly good resource for the Irish music scene but for music at large too.
