Triple drop and lose your shoes
Sorry for all these small, scrappy posts, but if you don't do these things while you think of it, you never do 'em at all.
Gareth Watkins is a resident at Mutant Pop along with myself, Carnage, Puffin and Mike Bull. Gaz and Mikey have been spinning separately and together for a while, but have really hit their stride in the past year, supporting the likes of Alex Smoke and Justin Robertson. Their guest slot at TAPE in summer of last year was one of the best we ever had, and ultimately led to us all collaborating on our new night. The pair have recorded a few brilliant CD mixes which have blown up locally; Mike's Back to the Marina Pt. 1 session was a seminal set for the Bristol electro/techno scene, an ahead-of-its-time, afterhours mix which precipitated the wee minimal explosion which has occurred since. Also highly recommended are Gaz & Mike's joint effort Death to Warped Vinyl, and Gaz's recent Seville Sunrise set - both kickin' selections of skeletal, druggy grooves. You will like them, so do yourself a favour and head here, where you can download the lot of 'em.
