I am fresh out of apologies for the blogging deficiency, it is just how it is right now, I'm determined that some kind of normal service will resume soon.. and that this wont become normal service.
As I type there's a bunch of stuff occurring to me that I probably should be doing, so I'd best get on with it. This track from Jamie Vex'd is stupendous - buildings fall, souls are squeezed and dibby dibby wobble-eds shrivel up into expired epidermal excrement..each and every time you hear it. So basically what I'm saying is that it's as good as 'Crusher Dub', and then some. There's a lighter touch to the irrepressibly warped Vex'd flavours but the menace is just better slightly camouflaged, not absent. It's late and I'll probably start ranting on like a buffoon about the treacle toned beats and massive mournful horns - or why there aren't more records like this, and so many that just sound the same. see, there you go. It begins and now it must finish. Listen to this 192-fi file, become entranced, disgusted, delighted.. whatever it takes - and then tootle off to secure a copy of some sort. The other tracks are ridonkulous too, I can't believe I slept on this when it came out in April, major malfunction.
Buy the article or a file, yokally it's Samurai business
Check his mighty fine, still available mixtape at the excellente Lucky Me site

I had hoped to actually do a non-radio show post last night with the brand new James Duncan video but pesky circumstances circumvented that. So here it is, in all it's glory, made by Joseph Jowitt of Headspread Media. The almost finished version a couple of weeks ago blew me away, this completed piece is off the scale. So very, very chuffed with this hectic awesomeness adjoining one of my evergreen favourites from the Duncan cellar. Henjoy oy.

Hmmm tough to know what tune to run for you blog-ees this week, a lorra Luke Vibert this week so I guess we'll go with the hirsute geez-us who looks like Jeez-us (or the stereotypical white feller with a grande beard version, though I suspect Mr Vibert's serene vibes may be the subject of herbal assistance...) He's got two on the go at the mo, the upcoming 'You Hear' for Planet Mu (which has a couple of sweltering dubsteppy tempo bass belches) and the 'Rhythm' set for Japan's Sound Of Speed.
We'll opt for one from the latter as it is havailable and awaiting your attention in shops all over the ..err.. metaphorical shop. Here's the title track in all it's well swung Vibertery, appreciate and renumerate.
Buy ponline or at zee Conch for yokels
And... simply have to fling this up, especially for overseas readers. This song was a favourite of mine from their album, and with a Moody Boyz dub, the hinevitable crew remix and this fire-some video - it's some package. Proper shivers down your spine business - respect to the MTC camp, and look out for Kidz In Space who are on the cusp of delivering something special real soon.

Another week with a show and a post followed by... well ... you know crickets and tumbleweed and stuff. I'll spare the excuses (but not the horses) and just warn you that the upside of the activities that are predominantly causing this blogblank will be making themselves known on RTM soon and they will be worth the wait. As well as the releases previewed tonight (Unitone HiFi/Jefferson Belt split 7", James Duncan 7" and deluxe album deliciousness) there is another James Duncan video on the way and the new SJD video can be viewed at the palatial RTM site or on VousToob or just down there at bottom of t'post. The Taylors have done us proud and it's an awesome article of ASCIItematics, much chuffage all round.
Tunewise I'd like to hip you to the 'Bakwey' rhythm from the glorious locals High Stakes. There's a whole interview malarkey with Simon & Tiopira on stinkyincy already, so I'll keep this succinct, basically they've come back with another belter. I hope there's some more vocals planned for this - and maybe some from closer to home, the MCs on this one haven't knocked my proverbial socks off ... yet (since this morning!) - though that is par for the course with the bulk of current voxalisers to be fair.
Hanyways I reckon this rhythm is tight, and definitely up to scratch with what's coming out of elsewhere at the mo, so titfers aloft for the HS fellerses.

and lets not be forgetting this. HD option seriously recoomendulated....

It hasn't been a case of wilfuly ignoring this here blog but the last week or two have been action stations at RTM Towers. This week we have an album going into the production cycle (James Duncan's stupendous 'Hello-Fi' out August 3d, start saving your pennies), two 7"s about to start their trek from files to piles (of wax) that would be Jefferson Belt and Unitone HiFi tussling it out on the split-ness and Mr Duncan with yet more scorchment, as well as new songs, promised demos and all sorts else. Throw in a fair swag of journalistic blabbering and the delightful distraction of a new toy for digital deckery, that mighty Kode 9 gig and a raft of other stuff.... and its been full on.
Not too full on to sling a tune your way and promise a post for later this week (I have given you a starter and a main course but the desert has been a tad tardulatory) though. Making a big impression on tonight's somewhat rocksmik show was the 'Milky Disco 2' comp, a recent gift from my #1 NYC connect and one that's taken a minute to sus out. There's some amazing stuff on there alongside a little tosh that is basically trip-hop dressed up in rather un-fetching balearic booties. Focussing on the finery, I've been somewhat taken with Polyester and their 80's-esque cut which closed out on tonights show. On first listen I dismissed this as yet more revisionist racket trying to conjure up some mythical atmosphere of 25+ years ago, yet it has crept up on me and dissolved my cynicism. I'm sure I've heard of (and maybe seen a picture of) Polyester on some blog somewhere but my google game must be off because my internetted sleuthery has revealed many Polyesters ( a garage rock band from Argentina, an indie mob from Uruguay etc) but not the one I'm looking for. Scratch that, an extra L, Doh! myspace below, not sure about their other gear but this track is the veritable biz.There's a whole host of other good stuff on Milky Disco 2, too many to mention here though I suspect tracks will be turning up on SG for some time to come. Have a taste... and then put yer hand in yer pocket and deal with the meal.
Buy presumably available soon through Border for Aotearoans
LoWeb can recommend their shopping site

coming soon, looking forward to this one too...
