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.

These are the tunes currently weighing down Gareth's box:

1. Bushwacka! - Beastman // Olmeto
2. Jeremias Werner - Dolby in Mono EP // Einmaleins
3. Stratos - Mrz EP // Kickboxer
4. Mikael Delta - Timeless Beauty EP Pt. 1 // Nuevo
5. Steadycam - Knock-Kneed // K2
6. Bruno Ponsato - Wade in the Water, Children // Hello?Repeat
7. Italoboyz - The Vietnamese EP // Treibstoff
8. Butane - Still Waiting // International Freakshow
9. Tom Dazing - Intenze // Toys for Boys
10. Ricardo Villalobos - Que Belle Epoque 2006 // Frisbee Tracks
11. Novatek - This and That // Preset
12. Bug & Tanzmann - Shick 'n Shock // Poker Flat
13. Italoboyz - The Titty Twister EP // Einmaleins

Catch Gaz supporting Butane at the next Mutant Pop on May 5th.


Bug & Tanzmann - Shick // Poker Flat

Steadycam - Knock-Kneed // K2

Forget Knock Kneed - it's all about the b-side on that Steadycam.

You know what it's like with my computer time at the moment! I'm desperate to get some tracks up but it's getting some time on a computer with net access that I can get my mp3 player hooked up to. I'll be on it tomorrow - nice big post on a bit of a disco tip methinks. Take a break from all the newer than new techno releases for a change.

I agree. The b-side (Rotums Kanoner) is the killertune on the Steadycam-ep. Keep it up guys!

Mark - My personal computer doesn't have net access at the mo so I'm only on those services intermittently. Kiran's uni doesn't let him use slsk but he does have msn, so add him and get sending!
