RAINBOW SERPENT CHILL STAGE 2012

2 05 2012

A bit late on the uptake, but this is the first hour or so of my set on the chill stage @ Rainbow Serpent this year. There was a whole lot of equipment change and dodgy wiring at the start of my set cos of lousy equipment, so its a little wobbly in bits. But I think its salvageable…kinda.

A few of the songs you’ve probably heard a few times in my sets – but hey, I like em. Hope you do to.

REVOLVER DINNER EDIT 19.01.2012.

20 02 2012

Another new mix. This is a recording of the first couple of hours of my Thursday dinner set from Colonel Tan’sRevolver Upstairs.

It was the week before The Rainbow Serpent Festival – so the first hour especially is a little ambient and chilled because I had been preparing for my ‘Chill Stage’ set at the festival. It gets a little more ‘friendly’ towards the end…probably because the restaurant was filling up by then.

I also used this as a demo for some quirky event the Melbourne Museum was gonna do. Unfortunately they couldn’t afford me in the end … 😉

Anyways, I hope you enjoy it. Great for a mellow morning/recovery or if you just wanna chill the fuck out!





OM UNIT

7 02 2012

This is JIM COLES aka OM-UNIT. He hails from the UK and makes some pretty sexy beats. Met him on the weekend where The Operatives managed to convince him to play a set at a warehouse party while he was on holidays in Melbourne. Super nice guy and bloody tall as well…

DUB-STEP?

10 11 2011

Yeah I know its a dirty word these days. But so is everything that is ‘IN’ at the moment. Always has been. Until the next dirty word comes around.

The genre has gone commercial in the last couple of years and I think people are quick to stereotype it as the one sound.

Ive never really been a fan of Dub music. I don’t mind some of it but its not the first thing I reach for at the record shop. Dub-step is supposedly the evolution of dub, but most ‘dub-step’ doesn’t even sound remotely like dub. And maybe thats why in the last few years I have discovered a great interest in this genre. That it is not just THE one sound.

This is my latest mix under a new moniker that I have been wanting to use for awhile now with my low slung down tempo projects. Enjoy.





ONRA, SILKIE & JON CONVEX

2 11 2011

Another weekend, another dj/producer + me shot. This time its French glitch hop meistro ONRA, dubstep champion SILKIE and also one half of duo INSTRAMENTAL – JON CONVEX.

All three played at last weekend’s Operatives ‘Espionage’ party and produced some really decent music. I love going to parties where I don’t recognise any of the tunes. Awesome.
