Musica Hermosa

Hey now...

The lovely chaps at Musica Hermosa have been kind enough to feature a guest mix by yours truly. Their blog is highly recommendable and features some great music. I strongly urge you all to add it to your regular attendings.

We will have details of the last of our Bank Holiday Sunday terrace parties of 2010 very soon. We'll be handlin' our bid'ness on the Tokyo Newcastle Terrace with our good friends One20, all will be revealed in good time...

This is exciting, isn't it?

In the meantime, check the wonderful Musica Hermosa blog here, and check the Vins guest mix here...

Did You Think I Was Sick?

I was mooching round town the other week, and I happened to wander in to a branch of USC. Now, this isn't a shop I usually frequent, but on this occasion, I'm glad I did. Playing on the house system was 'Lovesick' by Lindstrom & Christabelle.

How this slipped past me when it was released in late 2009, I will never know. ASAP, I procured myself a copy and set about making a more DJ friendly version. And here it is.

Cosmic Dust

When I stumbled across this little pearl by Sharon Bailey, I just had to tweak it. It's full of spaced out, swirly disco wonder and a rich dollop of mean guitars. Fantastic. Sharon Bailey was one of the founder members of Amazulu, a British Ska and new wave band in the 80s, although this came out on Salsoul in 1981.

It's a simple number, A-B structure, with some added beef and a bit of a rearrange. Have a listen via the soundcloud player, PM me there for a DL.

Now go and git some.
