End of the Road

No, not the Lugz 'n hugs Boyz II Men song, just a farewell to this blog for a while. As I write more exclusively about electronic music these past few years I don't really feel the need to post here.
Instead, head over to LWE where I produce the podcasts, write the odd review and interview the hell out of some of the world's best house and techno artists.
Or if you like my occasional stream of nonsenseness scrawlings, head over to my Tumblr where I laud praise over the latest and classic greatest tracks that have been exciting me lately.
Or just go about your lives, there's a lot happening outside you know.

Spirits in the Snow House

A good DJ mix or podcast is a special thing. I've been making mixtapes and mixes for over twenty years so I'm no stranger to the things that are going to make a mix a bit more memorable than a simple collection of tracks.
In my role as podcast producer for Little White Earbuds I get to hear some amazing mixes, though to be honest, with the amount of music I try and listen to during the week - what with new promos and my own discoveries I come across there is usually very little time to listen to things that aren't somehow part of my work. Last week I came across a mix by Transounds and was instantly patting myself on the back for taking the time to listen to their latest mix, because it contained everything that - for me, makes a mix more than memorable, but something that you want to keep coming back to again and again.

For a start the scope of this mix, Spirits in the Snow House, is ambitious and pulled off with aplomb. It incorporates a bunch of tracks I know and artists I am familiar with, and then a bunch more I had never heard from artists I was unaware of. And that is part of what I have always loved about a good mix, the fact that it will introduce you to new artists. Anyways I could bang on about it some more, or you could just check it out and see for yourself.
If you want to hear more from Transounds, you can check out their monthly podcast for London Fields Radio

Contact:Reply Mix

Every so often I get a hankering. Actually every so often I get crazy and end up going out for three days. When the mind has had enough but the body isn't ready to call it quits just yet I sometimes take to the studio and put some records together. This is a new mix of mine made under these exact circumstances. Have a listen, download and share with a loved one.

That Feeling

One of my favourite movies ever is Paris, Texas. It's expansive and haunting and its simple emotions are in plain sight of all who watch it. Never mind that someone as wizened and gnarled as Harry Dean Stanton could have gotten even close to the gorgeous Nastassja Kinski, it's a beautiful story. The dialogue in the peep show scene is a real heartbreaker, and I've always wanted to make a track about it. So I did. Here's the result

Danske Møbeliser

Where I grew up there was a pretty shitty furniture company called Danske Møbler. It means Danish furniture - amazing huh. Anyways, they ran a lot of ads on TV so most people of my generation growing up where I did knew about them. After a DJ gig the other night a friend jokingly dubbed me the Danske Møbeliser. Funny DJ name but one I'd tire of too quickly. So I made a track and called it that instead. Aren't you glad you got that back story?

Quadratic Harmony

Here's my latest track, a heavy Silverbeat remix of a Mirrorcube track that has been formulating for some time and now ready to unleash. I just got a few crazy new pieces of kit too, so expect to have more and more finished tracks coming your way real soon. In the meantime check this out.

A Straw for the Drowning Man

This is my latest track under my Dalston Pils handle. A nice, late night slice of floaty, dreamy house. That surly looking geezer in the pic is Joseph Conrad who wrote some amazing novels, perhaps most notably Heart of Darkness. Though the title for this track is taken from one of his most accomplished books, Lord Jim, which also includes this amazing line: The desire of peace waxes stronger as hope declines, till at last it conquers the very desire of life. Yeah, anyways, have a listen.

Love Is The Function Of Death

Here's a new techno track from me. It's inspired by reading Yevgeny Zamyatin's dystopian masterpiece 'We'. Cold steely techno for your pre-programmed brain - have a listen

Fred Savage

Adolescence is a tricky time; raging hormones, a deep distrust of the older generation, problem skin and struggling to fit in amongst your peer group whilst trying to develop a strong sense of individuality are just a few of the problems that plague teenagers. Thankfully those times cede into adulthood and its own set of trials, leaving the spotty, awkward years of growth and development a distant, oily memory glossed over with the fuzzy kindness of recalled triumphs and bff's. Some people are not so lucky however, especially the small select group of child stars whose puberty plays out on our TV screens in constant re-runs for decades after their own journey from youth into maturity is over.
Fred Savage is one such child star, the perpetually blemish-free Kevin Arnold, whose trials and tribulations centred around growing up in the 1960's with a speccy geek of a best friend and a love interest in the beautiful girl next door with impossibly lustrous locks.

The Baby

Here's a brand new cut I just finished today. It originally started as a project for a short film, but it took a very different direction. Have a listen... Daslton Pils, The Baby by Per Bojsen-Moller
