This Ain't No Smoke

The last Vayge party for a while took place last night at Bristol's Blue Mountain. Disappointingly, I only got to see the start of Alex Smoke's live set, but he seemed to have things bubbling away nicely as we ascended the stairs to man the decks, Tape tag-team style. Upstairs, meanwhile, had turned into one of those situations we all know and hate - banging hard techno played to a near empty room. Don't these DJ's have any respect for themselves or the people they're playing to? Not that there's anything wrong with the music, but there's nothing wrong with taking it down a notch and then proceeding to build it back up, getting the crowd into your vibe in the process. Which, not surprisingly, is exactly what me and Puffin did and it went down exceedingly well. Thanks to everyone who got into it and came up to us (including Tim Goldsworthy's nephew of all people!).

Here's what I can remember us playing from last night in a vaguely correct order:

D-Train - Keep On (Edit)
Todd Terje - Eurodans
Hot Chip - (Just Like We) Breakdown (DFA Remix)
Padded Cell - Unknown Zone
Tangoterje - Get It On
Kelley Polar - Here In The Night
Who Made Who - Hello, Empty Room
Heaven 17 - Penthouse & Pavement

Justice - Waters Of Nazareth
Buckley - Block Party
The Streets - Weak Become Heroes (Ashley Beedle Remix)

Poni Hoax - Budapest (Joakim Italo Dub)
Metro Area - Miura

Grafiti - What Is The Problem?
Robin S - Show Me Love
Baxendale - I Built This City (Original Mix)
Lindstrom - I Feel Space (Tiefschwarz/Turntable Rockers Remix)
Rekid - My Bleep
Underworld - Rez

Our Mutant Pop partners Mike and Gaz sturdily rocked the main room before Alex Smoke's set, and also unveiled our new flyers which'll be up on here as soon as they wake up and e-mail me the images. That may be a while yet, considering the Vayge after-party only finished 3 hours ago. Gaz was nearly asleep when I left him at 3, so I do hope that he managed to drag himself through til the end! Also on the Mutant Pop front, I'll be uploading the new mix tonight so keep checking back for your aural fix.

On the mp3 front, check Oh My Gosh for a Sebastien Leger mix of Fairmont's plink-plonk anthem, 'Gazebo', or get a taster of the mix by popping over to 24:Hours for Pier Bucci's stellar mix of Ellen Allien & Apparat.

Very true, but you guys get everything so far before release! I don't know how you do it. 24:hours deserves it's props though - good quality stuff over there continuously. Keep up the good work over there, both of you!

Regarding the Pier Bucci-remix of Ellen Allien: we and ohmygosh posted them on nearly the exact time. Just wanted to say that so no one thinks i downloaded it from them and then reposted it on 24:hours. Thanx for the kind words, i love you blog aswell guys!

it's true about the banging hard'n'fast'n'monotone/schranz techno DJs - they mostly suck (and this kind of techno mostly too).
