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.

Here’s some pictures from the Starkey gig on Sunday night. Which as you can see was topically tropical and savage. Thanks to Gon(pictured below) for the great photography. A link to the full slide show is at the bottom of this post.

Some Wonky gigs

Get your secretary to update your diary.

Some wonky gigs over the next while. Next week, playing with the Electronic resistance crew -the continuous beats wing of Seomra Spraoi, the only crew in Dublin who make a concerted effort to create autonomous zones in the city; a thankless and difficult task.

The bankholidy weekend after that – Starkey! A gig close to my heart as I was pleased to manage to book him for little ol’ McGrudders, on a tour where he’s playing fabric on the Friday night. And just when I needed some hype for the gig, this comes along – wonky n’all

An article about a(n attempted) new genre called wonky, conveniently the genre is pretty much the type of sounds I play; Starkey, Rustie, Quarta330, Zomby, grime like Trim and MC Beezy, bassline etc and general messed up bass heavy stuff with bleepy distorted midrange business – DIE PACMAN!.

Handily enough, I won’t have to jump so much as step daintily on to this one.

Anyway, some links to good recent Starkey sets from his show, seclusiasis radio on Subfm and an older show of mine featuring a clutch of his tunes.

Starkey special -featuring a lot of his tunes.

And from his bio ‘Starkey is the mayor of Starkville, which is entirely inhabited by Starkbots, the robots he created. Starkbots are fueled by street bass gritty beats with melodic tendencies.

Performing as Starkey for only three years, Starkey is co-owner of Slit Jockey Records, a member of Philadelphia’s Seclusiasis and NYC’s Trouble & Bass crews. In 2005, Starkey won both the North American and Mid-Atlantic Laptop Battles, in Seattle and Washington D.C. respectively. He was also awarded the Choice Award for “Best UK Grime DJ in Philly” along with Dev79. Starkey has had a string of vinyl, cd and digital releases on labels such as Peace-Off/Ruff (France), Nonclassical (UK), Dead Homies (US), Starksound/Rag&Bone (UK) and LoDubs (US), and many others.

And the week before that (forgive the wonky chronology)

Ghislain Poirier flyer

Playing with Ghislain Poirier on the 23rd. He’s a kind of bass Odysseus, blown on the winds of global ghetto tech hip hop and dancehall projects. Hate to think what his wife will say when he gets home.

Here’s a good set of his from a few months ago – Bastard Bass

Dj Halfdutch is playing also. Great party Dj who can get as nasty as she wants. Check out her podcast for new Irish indie mag State. Some lovely blends, check the first couple from Ella Fitzgerald and Louis Jordan into Pharoahe Monch into Pablo.

Also, thanks to everybody who braved the sewer gasses of fibbers last week and made playing bagpipes drones as 303’s such fun.

This weeks show was a Starkey special, with most of the tunes coming from the Philly Grimester. His podcast mix for Xlr8 is well worth checking out. As is his radio show with Dev79.


He has Dubstep luminaries as guests on a regular basis and this week had a hilarious feature on ‘Squee’, a new style of music to which Finnish people drunkenly stumble to quote Dev79 ‘rythmic drukeness’. More on that anon.

Also on show was an excerpt from blogariddims 29 podcast- Lower end spasm or “Grimespasm” . This is my favourite mix from the excellent the Irish podcast series Blogariddims
