Don't Techno For An Answer

It’s been a while, but I'm finally back with a couple of posts to entertain you as you while your bank holiday weekend away. Firstly, I’ve got to take time to thank all the We Don’t Play guys for asking us to play with them at Cosies last weekend. I can’t say that the crowd were particularly enthused with what we were playing (I'm sure Puffin Jack'll have more to say on this in his long overdue post), but a few people seemed to be enjoying it. However, it was a good night all round for the Tape boys, though I can't say that I've ever had a bad night down there. Here’s what I played in a vague order:

Closer Musik – One, Two, Three, No Gravity (Ewan Pearson Acid Mix) // Out Of The Loop
Henrik Schwarz/Ame/Dixon ft. Derrick L. Carter – Where We At (Version 1) // Sonar Kollektiv

Jah Wobble & Bill Laswell – Alsema Dub (C2 Spiritual Dub) // Palm
Riton vs The Uber Audio Bros – Walk On Water // Get Physical
Run Jeremy – Windowlicker (X Rated Version) // White
Tomas Andersson – Washing Up (Tiga’s Na Na Na Na Na Remix) // Bpitch Control
Serge Santiago – Atto D’Amore // Arcobaleno
Royksopp – What Else Is There? (Trentemoller Remix) // Wall Of Sound
Fred Wesley vs. Lady Sovereign – Random House Party (El Jay Edit) // Rhythm & Booze
The Dix – Here Comes The Dix // Smacks
Who Made Who – Hello, Empty Room // Gomma
Padded Cell – Konkorde Lafayette // DC
Francisco – Malinco // Nature

As you can see, I started off quite mentally with the Ewan Pearson's Acid mix of Closer Musik, then built things up in a Detriot stylee before attempting to rouse the crowd with a few sure-fire bangers that still failed to get things going. Resigned to slowing things down, I had no choice but to pull out the party records (the Prince Paul produced track from The Dix, and the Fred Wesley/Lady Sov booty) before ending things on a bit of a cosmic tip. Here are a few of the tracks for all you mp3 fiends, a few boshers and a track from Francisco's luscious 'Music Business' LP. Why the hell didn't they album blow up? I don't think I've seen a single review of it, but trust me when I say that it's not just worth buying for the board game that you get in the centre of the gatefold. By the way, if anyone's got the Carl Craig mix of Jah Wobble & Bill Laswell, then a YSI would be much appreciated as it's absolutely killer - what a bassline!

Anon - I only have it on a 7", not mp3 so I can't put it up unfortunately. However, you have my word that it's fucking great. Check out the sample or buy a copy here.

It's also got a pretty smart b-side, another booty of The Specials' 'A Message To Rudy' and ODB's 'Shimmy Shimmy Ya'.

Alex - Cosies sort of defines what's so good and bad about Bristol simultaneously, which happens to be that fact that it's too damn stoned. You can sort of see why they're not used to boshing house!
