Some more wonky related info. Sasha Frere-Jones writing in the New Yorker about producers in Ghislain Poirier’s circle, joins the lets name game, coming up with lazer bass. Dj C runs a poll as to what it should be called with Starkey/Dev 79’s choice seeming to come out on top. All grist to the mill anyway, come along to the Electronic Resistance gig tonight and I’ll play ya some.

ps. No show upload so far this week as my f&(*%$£”! connection or software or something is acting up – will try to post one up from a caff. later.

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.

Here’s  the poster for the Folkcore gig, that firewall prevented me from posting yesterday. Should veer amusingly between the sublime and the ridiculous and I imagine the craic shall be 90.
