Sooo.. Just got back from Ireland where I DJed with Peanut and Simon from the Kaiser Chiefs and they were a good crack. Very down to earth and they insisted on keeping a drink in my hand the entire time! While over there I got asked to DJ at Oxygen this year so I’ll be back in a couple of weeks and I’m totally hyped to see Jay Z, Eminem, Erol Alkan, Arcade Fire and Muse. Actually cannot wait!

In my past few sets i’ve played this track and it has gone down a treat each time. I’m loving this fun dance music that’s coming out and hitting the mainstream at the moment!

So… long time no post šŸ™‚

I’ve been a busy bee playing here there and everywhere. Spent a little time with some of the guys at Dot To Dot festival in Bristol recently where I got to get drunk hang out with Zane Lowe, The Mystery Jets and Ellie Goulding*. I stole plenty of peoples riders and also got to have a decent chat with some of these people about what’s going on / coming up.

Right.. down to business

Example is gonna drop a new single very soon. Kickstarts is already causing a fuss when I play it out so after its official release I very much expect it to become this years ‘I’m Not Alone’.

Here’s a cheeky little remix.
Example – Kickstarts (Bar 9 Remix)

BONUS
Here’s my stab at a remix. Well.. It’s not really a remix but it samples Blur’s Song 2 a fair bit but is an electro Fidget Monster!

Andy Tokyo – It’s Not My Problem (Song 2)

Thats about all… oh except one thing. Check out Wilder. They’re from Bristol and are gonna do something big soon. Think Friendly Fires, The XX and Delphic (With hints of Vampire Weekend).

Peace

*Don’t worry girly.. she doesn’t interest me like that :p

I love MIA*

April 30, 2010

So MIA has leaked a track online this week and it is a noisy, aggressive, powerful punk fuelled track. If this is to represent her next release then I’m gonna go ahead and say that giving birth must have really hurt as she sounds really really angry!

MIA – Born Free

I’m off to DJ Ramshackle tonight with my brother The Postman and am then hitting up Block Party tomorrow night in Bournemouth. Its gonna be a bigggg weekend!

*(She kinda looks like my girlfriend so I can get away with saying that :p)

This weekend it will be the excellent Block Party in Bournemouth and I’ll be hosting the Silent Disco so come and say hi šŸ™‚

When I’m not DJing I’m hoping to bounce around the multiple venues and check out the likes of Doorly, Foamo, Plastician, Utah Saints and Jakwob.. None of which should be missed.

To help get you ready here are a couple of tunes that I absolutely love from guys on the lineup.


Major Lazer – Bruk Out (Foamo Remix)


Temper Trap – Sweet Disposition (Doorly Remix)

ALSO… Head honcho at We Are Your Friends has put out a mixtape inĀ anticipationĀ of what will surely big the first big party of the summer.

BONUS

Well it seems like one of the big tunes of the summer is finally out of the bad. One by Swedish House Mafia looks to be huge and I can’t wait to start hearing it out of a few BIG sound systems throughout the summer.
Swedish House Mafia – One

Doorly has been remixing just about everything cool for the past year or so now and this remix is no different.

Welcome to the site / blog / yada yada yada.

My aim here is to link to stuff that I find cool as well as whore out any mixtapes / Remixes / Mashups that I come up with.

Not gonna drag out the intro bull**** so here are a few links to some tunes that I am currently going nuts for.

Rihanna – Rude Boy (TC Remix)

Sure, It’s rihanna, but it’s big (really big). Having a lot of love for the DnB remixes that are coming out at the moment for some of the bigger commercial tunes. Makes that stuff more credible when you play it out.

VaskiĀ – Zombie Apocalypse

I came across this tune when I was blog hunting for my last mix and this is probably my favourite dubstep tune at the moment.

Ramshackle

I found this random clip of me and The Postman DJing. This was a mental night from what I remember.

I’ll put together a meaningful post soon.
