Pure Gold

It's been a while since I graced these fair pages with my inane rantings, but I've had plenty of good excuses this time around. Unfortunately you're not going to find out about them until next week or so, but look forward to some exciting Mutant Pop related news. There's also been a bit of a dry spell as far as new radio shows have been concerned (though you can now access two old shows that have been repeated), but this week I've remedied things with another mish-mash of dancefloor sounds, both old and new. Make sure that you listen out for Villalobos's astoundingly oddball hip-minimal remix of Beck's 'Cell Phone's Dead' which I've been caning over the last few weeks and also dropped to great effect at the Family night in Dublin. Many thanks go out to Matagouri who played alongside us, Arveene for supporting us wholeheartedly and actually turning up this time(!), and all of the lovely people that we met along the way. We've tentatively been invited back again, so keep checking these pages for future dates.

Another record that went down a storm in Ireland was Frank Hebly's 'De Tuinslangboogie', a 98bpm wonked out acid-funk banger that takes the tempo down yet makes damn sure that the crowd gets gyrating. Even Matagouri had his reservations when I told him about it, but as soon as I dropped the needle he was peering over to check the bpm count. It's made by the reclusive Hebly using only vintage analogue equipment, and it really shows in the warmth and depth of his sound. Play this one loud and you definitely won't be dissatisfied. We've also got an exclusive edit from Thumbs Aloft on their forthcoming Pointless Edits 12", which should be released sometime in the new few months. No clues to what they've edited, but let's just say that it's so good, I wish that it'd been released 'yesterday'. Ahem. There's loads of other gems in there from World Premiere, Midnight Star, Herb Alpert, and also a melodic minimal masterpiece from Florian Meindl's new 12" on Trapez (if you're in Bristol at the start of May, make sure to come down to Mutant Pop to check the boy's skills). It's already archived as it went out last night, so get clicking!

TAPE Radio - Show #22: 'Pure Gold'

This weekend sees the motley TAPE crew head over to Gothenburg in Sweden for Club Mezcla's debut warehouse party which takes place on Saturday night. Joining us on the bill will be Tennishero, who'll be returning to their homeland to kick off Mezcla's opening with one of their live sets. The Swedes (currently residing in Paris) have only had one track out so far, but still managed to blag Get Physical's Chelonis R. Jones into providing the vocals for 'Alone', a bleepy electro-boogie number that recalls lost childhood hours playing Mario Kart. Or something. Anyway, we'll be coming on after them at about 3am for a three hour vinyl only set, so if you're in town, make sure you pop down to the secret location (keep checking the Club Mezcla website for exact info closer to Saturday night or e-mail them here instead). Also, they're hosting my latest mix on their site (it's been a while, hasn't it?) featuring tracks and remixes from Mudd, Vincent Markowski, Efdemin, Mock'n'Toof, Ink & Needle, and Spiritualized amongst others, so there's a reason to head over there even if you're going to be on the other side of the globe this Saturday.

Take care of yourselves, and have a good weekend!

Good stuff as always. Nice touch on sticking the Thumbs Aloft track on there… wonder who the chancers behind it are? ;)
