You wouldn't have know JD was ill from the  music on the night. Some lovely tracks in the first coupe of hours, Nenah Cherry's never sounded so good. Plus Communicate style ponding later on.

Hat of to John, he knew people had travelled far & wide form this and didn't want to let anyone down. Many other DJs would have cancelled.

The late start meant I could catch Recondite, who played some nice stuff + his 2nd to last track was stunning, assume it comes out next year.

Was anyone from the board, Digweed aside, there on the recorded night?

Curious as to the context of this mix - thick end of four hours and all that but when does the recording start from - beginning of his set? 

Got to say though I'm in agreement with the general consensus - most enjoyable thing carrying Digweed's name that I've heard for a long, long, while.

Simon R & Andy Newland were there

think the night was the best part of 6hrs in total - and we've got the middle 4hr section across the 3 disks

i believe

It was 6 hours, the Live In is taken from the start.

The Mayer Instrumental goes into his vocal mix and then JVs mix of Dem Howl. Luca Ballerini - L' Eternità Di Un Attimo [Cocoon Recordings] also got boshed out later on.

Dermo ?

Postie has delivered smile

LOL, bet Dermo is frothing at the mouth reading this.

Chortle  .. but prob not as much as Sasha is looking at the RA poll numbers.

Not getting an album out on time to a beloved paying audience is just not on.

Can't help but think heads will roll.

It's down to the people that ripped and uploaded CDs in file-share sites. When they were sent out early uploads appeared before the digital releases were out. Spoilt it for us hard working/paying public.

Typical UK postal service as the bags were picked up Friday I think. Ideally Bedrock should have a CD and MP3 combined option so you can grab both. Will prob head over to BP later.

Have to say I enjoyed seeing Hawtin in his Plastikman guise at Brixton Academy a few years ago.

Saw it in Manchester and thought it was naff. In fairness the venue (Academy) was crap.

Always liked Closer To The Edit though:

Henry proving to be impotent in the track selection stakes as always lol.

Release Notes:

01. Trentemøller - Always Something Better (DJ Tennis & Mind Against Remix) [Poker Flat Recordings | PFR156]

Poker Flat Recordings has been dealing out underground house music with a unique twist since 1999; from the defining debut "Loverboy" through the Bugnology series, acclaimed albums and worldwide club hits, Steve Bug's essential imprint has unearthed new talent, developed rising stars and welcomed veterans into the fold. Steve Bug's reputation as an exceptionally gifted DJ, producer and music connoisseur is about to carry the beloved imprint to its 15th anniversary, which will be celebrated with its finest collection of raw talent yet, starting with this first instalment of the anniversary series called Four Jacks.

Following the winning format of the series thus far, Part 4 boasts two slamming new remixes of classics from the vault, and two brand spanking new tracks from Poker Flat's stellar roster. Trentemøller's electro touchstone "Always Something Better" now draws the attention of DJ Tennis and Mind Against, who keep it slow and suspenseful with an intricate and modern deep house makeover.

Chardronnet vs. Afrilounge's "Shake It" was a defining moment of minimal tech in 2005, and Ejeca modernises it with a full-bodied treatment of peaktime melodic techno. The finale offering of new tracks created to mark the anniversary come from John Tejada & Justin Maxwell and Kindimmer; the former reach for vintage boompty house and noodly acid on "All We Know", while the latter opts for delicately minimalist deep house construction for the chiming, gleaming "Tremor"

With all four of Poker Flat's Four Jacks now been revealed, the label has played its winning hand once again, demonstrating just how they have stayed at the top of their game at 15 years deep.

Release Date: 01 December 2014

02. DAVI - The Gates Of Babylon [RebelLion | RBL021]

Following up his 2013 Two Suns in the Sky EP, LA-based producer DAVI returns to Crosstown Rebels underground label Rebellion with The Gates of Babylon, an atmospheric two-song EP with a decidedly Middle Eastern tone.

An accomplished producer and DJ, DAVI has performed around the world, in intimate clubs and on stages large and small, from Exchange LA, Monday Social, Enter and Minus Showcase to festivals like TomorrowWorld. Besides his work with Rebellion, he has also released on Anjunadeep, Outside the Box Music, Treibstoff, Nine Records, Stripped Music Recordings, Bits & Pieces and there is sure to be more to follow.

“After Two Suns In the Sky, I wanted to release another similar EP with the same mystic vibe and harmonies, but I wanted the EP to be about something else,” DAVI explains. “As I might take a little  break from making Middle Eastern sounds, I wanted this one to be as special. The word ‘Babylon’ is used in a larger sense to describe the modern world, and the importance it places on wealth and power.”

DAVI’s The Gates of Babylon is in stores Dec. 15 via Rebellion.

03. Henry Saiz - Haunted Girl Canyon (Original Mix) [Suara | SUARA157]

Henry Saiz must be one of the most brilliant producers on the worldwide electronic scene. His unique sound can't be categorised and for this EP he has played with a mixture of genres such as; Electronica, Tech House, Disco and Techno. 'Haunted Girl Canyon' boasts an electronic landscape full of melodic synths and powerful beats and basses.

The remixes come from two heavy weights on the melodic electronic scene such as Rodriguez Jr. and Eelke Kleijn who have delivered their own re-interpretation of this masterpiece. Check out this amazing EP and be ready to be transported somewhere else.

Release Date: 01 December 2014

04. Ghost Culture - Giudecca (Gabe Gurnsey / Factory Floor Remix) [Phantasy Sound | PH33RMX]

Phantasy are proud to present a remix of Ghost Culture's 'Guidecca'. A stretched rework from Factory Floor's Gabe Gurnsey, transforming the original into a glitchy progression of post-industrial tech house, complete with chopped vocal edits and hypnotic synth lines. Limited to a few one-sided 12s.

Catalogue: PH33RMX
Format:12" one sided vinyl
Release Date: 08 December 2014

05. Neneh Cherry - Spit Three Times (Marlon Hoffstadt & HRRSN Remix) [Smalltown Supersound | STS248CDXB]

Deluxe 2CD version of Neneh Cherry’s critically acclaimed album Black Project. Second CD contains nine remixes by the likes of Joe Goddard, Loco Dice, Matt Karmil, Marlon Hoffstadt and Silvio & Itchy.

Neneh Cherry releases her first solo album in 16 years - a collaboration with RocketNumberNine, produced by Four Tet, and featuring a guest appearance by Robyn. The 10-track album, recorded and mixed over a five-day period is, out on Smalltown Supersound. It follows 2012’s 'The Cherry Thing', a collaborative record with free jazz, noise collective The Thing, which featured new versions of songs by The Stooges, MF Doom, Ornette Coleman, amongst others.

While her energy and demeanour may not have changed since the days of Rip Rig + Panic, musically, 'Blank Project' is a departure from anything Neneh has previously done, initially written as a means of working through personal tragedy. What stands out upon first listen is the album’s sparseness: loose drums and a few synthesizers are the only accompaniment to Neneh’s wildly poetic, sometimes-spoken, sometimes-screeching, soul-flooded and raw vocals. The space created by this minimal aesthetic leaves room for occasional pistes and flurries of rapid, yet throbbing and thunderous instrumentation. Featuring combined elements of beat poetry, avant-electronica and beautiful vocal melodies, it’s a record that uses simple ideas to create something entirely original. And despite the personal struggles Neneh was working through in writing this new material, the songs are far from introverted.

With 'Blank Project', Neneh continues to arrive at moments in musical history when there is an opportunity to subvert ideas of popular culture. She is subverting once again, only this time, although this record is musically bold, Neneh sees the stasis she’s challenging isn’t musical or societal, but her own.

Release Date: 02 November 2014

06. Johannes Brecht - Enjoy The Void [Boso Records | BOSO 004]

Keeping standards sky high, ‘Enjoy The Void’ is the fourth release on Ten Wall’s burgeoning Boso imprint and the creation of Johannes Brecht. Consisting of three original tracks, ‘Enjoy The Void’ has beautiful depth, dark yet driving, with progressive synth lines enhanced by an overall melancholic feel and highly infectious vocal. On a more uplifting tip, ‘Another World’ is a modern twist on house with alluring melodies, while ‘Fallen Angel’ strips things down with an abstract melody.

Released by: Boso Records
Release date: 8 December 2014

07. Berkson & What  - Make It True feat. JoJo De Freq (Mr Fingers Smooth Mix) [Play It Say It | PLAY005]

JoJo De Freq’, a harmonious, radiant house jam with a sharp kick, acid tinged bassline, sultry vocals and smooth synths. Unsung hero Luke Solomon delivers a ‘Remix 4 Turnings’ version turing it into an almost new track with a grooving bassline, funky melody, spoken vocals and prominent hats. Legend Larry Heard aka Mr Fingers heads up the B-side, with his ‘Psychedelic Jungle Mix’ and ‘Smooth Mix’ doing just as they say.

o+ The release features an ‘Extended Mix’ to be released digitally, which is available on this promo. The original can be found on the 12” and on Berkson & What’s forthcoming album, ‘Keep Up Appearances’ to be released on their own Modelmaker in January 2015.

o+o Berkson & What are best known for their machine made house and techno with no frills but plenty of heft on labels like Poker Flat and Crosstown Rebels. Their music engages dancers in the head, heart and heel in equal measure. After Seth heard the original track at Sunwaves festival this summer, he contacted the duo to ask for an extended version and signed the release to the label, organising some fantastic remixes to complete the package.

o+o+ Vocalist JoJo De Freq used to host the notorious Nag Nag Nag parties in London. Snippets from a recording were used and worked into the track.

o+o+o Luke Solomon has covered it all from setting up the seminal label Classic Recordings with Derrick Carter to making the UK Top 10 with his band Freaks. Larry Heard is a musician widely known for the Chicago house music he produced in the mid-1980s with influential group Fingers Inc. and solo, most notably as Mr Fingers.
