Starkey’s remix  also features in the very very excellent current Lower end spasm sub fm mix(linked in the side bar), their blog  is a good place to check the best of London flavas and a kind of barometer of how four four beats and house are influencing/ making a come back in the sound . Also on their blog, check the marcus nasty funky mix  from last month for a demo of how good funky can be.

In other news – after the success of the !Kaboogie audio workshop at the DEAF(sic) festival(sic) we’re starting a series of audio and media workshops next week before the !K club. Details on this later.

In other news-

Flicked onto one of those reality cop shows recently and saw two U.K. police hassleing two (eastern?) guys cause they were carrying a little scrap they’d tatted(like a foot or two). The police accused them of not bathing and needing to brush thier teeth!!??

Voice over: “Officers John and Mark struggle to deal with the smelly foreigners….”

Who was commiting an offence here?

And here’s a crazy calypso cover about it.

Thiaz Itch – Lord Kitchener – New York Subway

PCPRadio Barney in Blackface

Mighty sparrow

Starting with some calypso from the occasionally maligned Harry Belafonte,( the line being that he exploited ‘real’ calypso- I don’t have much time for the keepers of ‘tradition’) this sounds like Barney McKenna of the Dubliners was playing tenor banjo in Trinidad(picture him in blackface) . Check king of calypsonians Mighty Sparrow’s Erasmus B Black as possibly the best tune ever. Those who know me can guess the extra reason for my current fascination with this tune.

Other highlights Ed Devane and Judas the bimboy’s remixes on the forthcoming Super extra bonus party remix album (launching in Andrew’s lane next weekend for those in Dublin) and a half hour prog synth work out from the new Matmos product. I’ll try to fix up the tracklist later.

  1. Harry Belafonte – When the yankees are gone
  2. Mighty Sparrow -The yankee way
  3. Mighty Sparrow-Erasmus b black
  4. Roots manuva – Again and again – moody boys remix
  5. heavy art –0
  6. cotti v mr parti feat jammer dem fi know
  7. A&e Dept -  The rabbit’s  name was (mixed on top of the last one)
  8. Zomby -Liquid dance hall
  9. drums
  10. zomby
  11. Bass junkie
  12. computer people
  13. Bass junike – circuitry
  14. Matmos -supreme balloon  – Half hour track to the new album
  15. Girl
  1. Ed Devane -Super extra bonus party remix
  2. Judas de Bimboy -  Super extra bonus party remix
  3. Postal Service- The district sleep alone tonight – DJ Downfall remix

Here’s an old one to enjoy in the sun (which keeps on giving this summer in Ol’Éire).

I’ve been playing this a various gigs over the last few weeks and am really feeling it again.
