1: Starkey mix for FACT

I wasn’t a fan of Starkey’s ‘Gutter Music’ album, although I hear his sophmore offering is a lot better. I wasn’t too sure about listening to this mix for FACT but I was happily surprised. Lots of heavy hitting tracks here and a really lush remix of Bon Iver to round things off.

2. dÉbruit mix for FACT

I reckon I’ll just stop doing this blog and just post a link to the new FACT mix each week. French synth-funkster dÉbruit drops a dirty, soulful set that slides gracefully from Kurtis Blow through to Dorian Concept.

3. Alex B mix for Brainfeeder

Kings of left-field instrumental hip-hop (can’t we just call it wonky?) Brainfeeder post up their latest podcast mixed by Alex B. I have no idea who he is, but he seems to have been doing alright for himself without any notice from me. Loads of great tracks from himself alongside Viktor Vaughn, AFTA-1 and Dibia$e.

4. Harmonic 313 on Viral Radio

It’s not really a mix, but Mark Ptichard (AKA Harmonic 313) drops by Viral Radio to play some new tracks from himself and Africa Hi-Tech (Harmonic313 + Steve Spacek) and to talk a little about his music.

5: Greena mix for Ballers 5ocial Club

I’ve done almost none of the work that I was meant to do today so… Here’s a link to Greena’s mix for Glasgow’s ‘Ballers 5ocial Club’ over at Sonic Router. Lots of good stuff in here from Joy Orbison, L-Vis 1990, Martin Kemp etc.

Bank Holiday w/ Fact

Posted in Live, Music with tags , , , , , , , , on April 28, 2009 by REAL BAD

As if Them 4’s night at the Rhythm Factory wasn’t enough for the coming bank holiday, I just found out about Fact Magazine’s night at Cargo on Saturday May 2nd. The line up is HUUUUGE – Wookie, Geeneus, Various Production, Alexander Nut and Brackles. I could go on and on about how good all of them are in their own right, but if anything is going to convince you to go it’s that the night is FREE. This night’s going to be a roadblock so better get down there early.

Why not check out Alexander Nut’s mix that he just did for Fact to keep you warm until Saturday Night.

Rustie – Bad Science Preview

Posted in Music with tags , , , , , , on April 17, 2009 by REAL BAD

Wireblock are preparing to release Rustie’s latest EP ‘Bad Science’ before the end of this month. Fact have posted previews of all 5 tracks on their site. Seems like they took them from Rub-A-Dub, so I’m just another middle man…

1. Tar

2. Bad Science

3. Shadow Enter

4. Zig-Zag (Heinrich Mueller Gravitational Equilibrium Mix)

5. Zig-Zag (Reprise)

I need to get my hands on the full version of the title track – a real heavy hitter in true Rustie “aquacrunk” style (has anyone else got sick of that term yet?)

The 5 track EP is currently available in white-label format over at Rub-A-Dub, so if you can’t wait any longer – goandgetit!
