Soulwaxmas

Soulwax

Soulwax have announced their first Soulwaxmas date for 2009 which is to be held at Brixton O2 Academy on December 11th. So far it will feature both a Soulwax and a 2Many DJs set but expect the usual suspects to be added to the list to guarantee a party not to be missed. Head over to ticketweb to get your ticket now.

In case you missed their 2 hour residency on BBC 6 Music this month then here it is again. Not quite what you might expect for their club DJ sets.

Real Bonkers

Tuff Wheelz

I appear to have overlooked these nuggets of electronic hedonism the first time round but after a browse of my inbox I turfed out these two tracks from blog regular's Tuff Wheelz for your listening pleasure. If you're unfamiliar with the productions of the French duo then check out some previous posts. Also be sure to check out their Soundcloud for more musical magic.

Skanks!

Armitage Skanks!

Last Tuesday I was invited to Skanks! HQ for a guest DJ set and interview with weekly host Boy Wonder. For those unfamiliar with Skanks! the brand was formed back in 1994 by DJ's Boy Wonder and DTISM after they put on a night in Public Life, a bar converted out of a Victorian underground toilet in East London.

After organising nights at Public Life they moved onto the Medicine Bar and in 2005 Skanks! started broadcasting regular radio shows with Nu Skool Breaks Radio. Since then the team has grown in numbers adding Collins303, Miss T, SteelzaWheelz, AWE soundsystem, Ollspin and BubbaKing all playing a varied selection of Hip Hop, Funk, Electro, Breaks, House, Nuskool Breaks and Drum and Bass. More recently Skanks! has been involved with For Boarders By Boarders (see previous post here for info) as well as organising events in London and of course playing at the Nu Skool Breaks tent at Glade Festival this coming weekend.

If you're not heading to Glade Festival this weekend then save the date 15th August as Skanks! take over Dex club in Brixton for an all-dayer/nighter stretching from 12pm through till 6am on Sunday! The event will feature DJs, live acts, live art and prizes, not forgetting the BBQ and hot tub! Head over to the Facebook event for details.

The Skanks! show is broadcast every Tuesday from 7pm-9pm on www.nsbradio.co.uk and you can catch each broadcast again by subscribing to the podcast. My 1 hour DJ set and interview is up now so click on the link below to listen. Thanks again to Boy Wonder and the Skanks! crew for inviting me over, I'm looking forward to Dex!

Summer Madness

Light Boner

"Here it is a groove slightly transformed, just a bit of a break from the norm..." Nope, I'm not talking DJ Jazzy Jeff & The Fresh Prince, but the sample they too used in their fair weather feel good hit of the summer. Using Kool & The Gang's 'Summer Madness' fellow US producers Starks & Nacey have created another gem to sit by the pool and sip cocktails to.

If you missed their EP you can get it here. Also, be sure to check out their collective Myspace page and download their mixtape for DURKL.

Radio Soulwax

Radio Soulwax

Also, if you haven't had the pleasure of experiencing the current Radio Soulwax tour in person, here's a recording of 2 Many Dj's Live from Rock Werchter on 4th July which was recently posted on Soulwax.info.

If you can ignore the talking over the mix for the first part of the recording it'll eventually highlight most of the tracks they played in Brixton recently. Although at 52:19 the recording appears to have switched to a differnet stage (but we all know the Dewaele brothers like to keep us guessing). Also the mix cuts short of the exremely long P Diddy audio from Felix Da Housecat Vs. Diddy - Jack U they played during the break in Vitalic's La Rock No.1 before (as in Brixton) they bring it back for the Nirvana/ Sonic Youth encore. Enjoy.

Hey Today!

I got this gem of a mixtape from new Bang Gang 12" signing Hey Today! last week and it's been a great wake up mixtape to accompany my large cappuccino in the mornings while filtering the ham from the spam on my prehistoric internet connection. The mix is packed full of edits and remixes by said artist and in case you missed it the first time I posted the Vanshe Tech remix of their track 'If I Was Wonderman' a while back here.
