I was once 2 down the bill from the "legendary" JFK.
Was a big deal at the time because paSSion was massive then,.and James Holden was resident and he definitely inspired my set,  I smashed out all the big prog trancers of the time.

Would Dixon want to be associated with GU? Don't know. He seems to be doing fine on his own, but I reckon a lot of dads out there would buy it (me included).

Who here would buy a super deluxe Digweed GU? There must be a number of die hard collectors amongst us.

Depends what the freebies were, but probably not wink

Also, top bantz.

Enjoyed this mix, proper bangers with a Balearic twist.  Would love to hear the next hour.

Liked the chus and cebbalos mix too, even the Sam Smith remix wasn't too offensive.

If I had to include a Rap / Hiphop album it would either be Jurassic 5 - Concrete Schoolyard or The Roots - Phrenology.  As a kid I also really enjoyed The Fugees' The Score, but I have since seen the error of my ways.  Kentucky Fried Chicken fried hard as shit ni***

That said, Quantics' Mishaps Happening is also fucking gold.

Goldie - Timeless
Aphex Twin - Collected Ambient Works 85-92

Good call, I would have to try and work them into my list as well.

That Goldie album is exactly what it says on the tin, absolute classic and still sounds great.  20 years old.

Was thinking about Aphex Twin, but generally his albums are a bit all over the place and don't flow well.
Both of the "SAW" releases though are top notch, I would probably choose Selected Ambient Works II though.

Fletch Jr had his first sickness+shits bug over the bank holiday weekend, which was nice.

Was looking forward to some sort of rest / lie over the past 3 days but that didn't happen. 

And it was another 4am wake up this morning as he vommed all over the bed!

I guess this is the sort of situation that really sells parenting to those who havn't got there yet.

Bank Holiday in tatters.
Washing machine and tumble dryer on overdrive.
Feed me coffee or kill me plz, whichever is easier.

Went to a country show today.
Ate pig roast, watched a dog show, shot a few clays, drank some cider and generally kept it rural.
Got soaked mind.

Or even better, it being leaked and hitting blog sites before release.

It sucks, especially for small / emerging artists who rely on it as a source of income.

The thing is, of you spend 6 months recording and mixing your debut album and it gets plastered all over the dodgy blogs and.nobody actually parts with any money to acquire it, where is the incentive to make more music?

I hate compiling lists.
Anyway I'll give it a shot.
Tomorrow I could.probably pick 10 different albums, but this lot is suitably eclectic to cover most moods / eventualities.

Adam F - Circles
Stornoway - Beachcombers Windowsill
Ulrich Schnauss - A strangely isolated place
Global Communication - 76:14
Sigur Ros - ()
Underworld - dubnobass....
Venetian Snares - Filth
The prodigy - music for the jilted generation
Autechre - Quaristice
Swans - To be Kind

Good shout.on Paul van Dyk, for some reason I prefer Out there and Back as an album.

Very skillfully put together though.

Definitely lacks big hitters.

My mate saw him at Antz Ushuaia last week, his videos were full of.loads of tunage.

After some.helpful IDs.... oxia - Domino was the bif hitter

Bankers can fucking do one.

Been working our nuts off here since 2008, keeping the turnaround as high as possible and finding work for our employees.

If its all going down the shitter again because of traders and bankers then it almost makes this stoic conservative voter flirt with the idea of Labour!

(lol, not really. Or maybe??)

Back at work, so looking forward to getting into this the best way, while walking. I've got a 20 minute stroll to work, so it's going to be in cuts, but still.

Hope you dont mind 20 minutes of ambience on the first sitting then

Forgot to mention bandcamp. Found some great music on there.

A lot of artists release limited physical copies and you get the download / stream via the app too. Win all round.

I have never streamed any music via a paid subscription.

I is old school and prefer to either own a physical copy, or occasionally purchase a download.

Other than that its radio and mixcloud.


Hope that helps.

Bedrock @ Heaven was a big one for me, first "proper" night out since the birth of my son, so I made the most of my freedom.  Ledged it on the dancefloor all night, great to see so many familiar faces and to be back in that club.  Johns set was epic and I would very much like to hear it again.


(sorry to derail this quaint round of prog fisticuffs)

Farewell, sweet prince.

Your relentless enthusiasm is applauded.

2.5 years at my first graduate job, followed by 8.5 years in my current job which I intend to do until I retire in approximately 32 years time.

It didn't look like that on the video.

From what I saw the video was just aimed at the front bit by the dj booth.  Its a fair bit bigger venue than that.

Yep I still listen to this.  Quality stuff, the transitions guest mix was great too.
