Sometimes shows fall together in strange and wondrous ways that you don't expect, and tonight was one of them. Sticking my head round the door of a video shoot (for SJD's 'Baby You're Oh So' with them Taylors back on the case) isn't usually the most relaxing and ideal way for pre-show vibes. However this green screenstravaganza was about the best, chillaged warm-up a label lad could wish for, and the clip will be up here as soon as it's done and dusted.
The show was definitely led and delightfully dominated by the Moderat album that has also been ruling the stereo over the last week. It's an absolute pearler (doff of the Kangol to Kirk on the musical ping-pong on this one), right up there with the last Modeselector album 'Happy Birthday' and I think it deserves a post of its own or alongside some similarly bewitching beats and moody melodies, so ... we'll get to that.
This week I present, for the next 7 days, the most celebrated track from Paul White's 'One Eye Open' EP, 'Alien Nature'. I say most celebrated because it's the one a lot of folks have been getting hot under the collar about, (header in the box to Geezer Guy for keeping on at me about Mr White), but personally I'd put the toe-tinglingly tremendous title track, Bullion's heavyweight hijack of 'Hustle' and the phabulousophonics of 'Phone Pest' ahead of this on my good look chart.
And a good look the EP is too, released on One Handed Music, the discerning folk who unleashed Bullion's mighty 7" amongst other treasures last year, this stands apart from the bulk of the twaddle that comprises what I have seen hilariously described as the 'post-Dilla beatmaker scene', puhlease. I won't start on that (yet...) , but I suggest you start on this, and finish with a visit to one of the links below for some vinyl or digital gratfication (and possible cake & dubplates for the big spender!), the whole 12" is excess essential off-kilter, instrumental hip hop business with a hint of dubwise and soundsystem fanaticism showing through on some tunes. No complaint about that, here. As mentioned in my renking reckoning there's yet more devastating tracks on the EP but this is all I have digitally at the mo, and it is a right cracker on the sly.. Give it a spin or six.

This probably isn't Paul White but it's in his myspace pics, not proud or fussy round here.
And please, if you haven't already.. do have a graze on the pungent pastures of Stinkmix 24 'Musky Moments' linked in the post below, it's a freeload fandangle, nigh-on 80 minute ziptape a dang doodle... enough.. it's late and I'm obviously on a different plane to the plot.
