The man Bogdan playing- His music is fun, fucked up, charming , innocent and banging(at the same time!) and my favourite of the wave that included; Sqaurepusher, Mike Paradinis, Aphex et.
The last time he played, he was drunk /out of it-
all the idm heads were getting really pissed off, he kept falling on
the table with his laptop and rolling around,
kept getting pulled off, hitting play again, then falling again, as portions of
the crowed got more pissed off.
I was cheering.
one of me fav gigs ever!
Pleased to be on the bill,
I’ll try and lash up a mini mix of his music before the gig.
Bogdan the Man mix.
This looks like fun, for those me included who feel strangely stirred by the sound of Pacman dying. Still not that keen on commodore owners either.
Major gig tonight-Ghetto Quietly with their first release -Prince Kong’s amazing Proper Horror Show. One of the most important Irish dance releases ever, mark my words. Free double vinyl of the album with the ten euros admission.
As Bookat said –
What do you get if you cross the DJ Producer with Diplo and The Bug? Maybe something close to Prince Kong on ‘Proper Horror Show’. After a couple of storm-troopin ragga cuts for Alphabet Set and !Kaboogie Records he’s made an even more uncompromising effort for the newly minted Ghetto Quietly label, reeling between bushwacka Ragga-gabber on ‘Angsta’ feat Jah Balance, to hyper-Soca rinseouts featuring MC Quilombola on ‘Whailt’ and ‘Cazz’. It’s fair to say there’s not really owt around like this so it’s the finest example of this style that you’re going to find.
Note there’s not ‘owt around like this’ – Just what Irish dance music needs – people with their own sound and Prince Kong’s has nailed a sound that’s got roots without sounding like it’s apeing a scene anywhere else -a rare quality in an Irish dance record.
Here’s a taster of what will be on offer tonight. ( check out the tentecled monster that is ‘Demons’ – a soundtrack to a Mike Mignola adventure)

2.Prince Kong – Move Up feat Warrior Queen-from the Well Sick ep on !Kaboogie
