And a right on-song pong it was tonight. All a bit of a voyage of discovery at the moment as I learn my way around the practicalities of the mighty fine Faderfox MIDI mixer, and the ludicrous possibilities of Traktor Pro... but what a gas it all is.
More importantly the tunes are coming through thick, treacly and excess essential at the minute - I can see there will be stuff from England that I will probably never get to play on the show, maybe an opportunity for a couple of mass postings.
As for England, they got this all wrong..
The noxious odours were spreading from further south - deep in the Pacific, and their origins were considerably more musical in nature.
Hanyways, a fair chunk of writing currently on the go, so maybe I'll wang out a non-radio show post (finally!) as light relief in the next few days. To tide things over - have to run a tune from what is undoubtedly one of the mixtapes of the year. Basically.... Somalian superstar in the making - K'naan, and discerning DJ Don-ito J.Period do over a bunch of Bob Dylan, Fela Kuti and Bob Marley over 3 sessions - all exquisitely dealt to with utterly essential interludes and a proper sense of proper. For my money (and I know I'm not alone on this) it's really all about the Dylan, this is the sort of thing that could come off so very very wrong, and yet it doesn't, at least for my money.. and I'm not generally well disposed towards folk mussing with some of my favourite songs.
Enough of my yakking, you can DL the whole thing for freeee here so don't take my word for it, or do - and check it out. You can even cop the Deluxe edition which has the trio and a couple of extra tunes, all fer nix.
