Scenes from the Great Recession



Goldy's Time Of The Month February 09




DJ Goldy isn't one for tracklists. In fact, he describes them as 'garlic' to him. Once he offered a grand to whoever could work out the full listing for one of them - nobody won as far as I know. For his latest Time Of The Month podcast he has offered a list of clues and hints. So there.

Click HERE and you'll soon be in Goldy-Land.

Clues and Hints

Dublin Hoods




Donkism is not confined to the UK - the soundtrack of Dublin's outer estates where I was raised seems to have been like this for ever. Can any dubliner erase the horrific memory of Maniac?

Out Now - Hyperdub 018

Saturday Night 106.4 FM




The grim news today is that UNESCO has formally declared Irish to be a 'definitely endangered' language. With this in mind, maybe you could lend your support by tuning in to hear me babble in pidgin Gaeilge this saturday on Raidio Na Life, in between some tasty music. Myself and HalfDutch will be alternating as hosts of the show, a week on and a week off from this week.



Tune in from 9-10.30 pm (GMT), grab some cheap cans and relax before you head out to blow your scratcher on overpriced bottled piss in one of Dublin's many yuppie containment units.

For anyone outside Dublin you can catch the livestream HERE.
Show repeats Monday at midnight GMT 23/02/2009.

A Fond Farewell



16hz + Johnny Oakley at Dubculture


Its with a tear in me eyeball that I give a big salute to DeadBeat heads 16Hz and Johnny Oakley, who are jumping the sinking ship next week, packing up the synths and PCs and making the move to Berlin. The lads have been a constant fixture in Dublin nightlife these last few years, playing out sets of their own and fellow local producers tracks - incorporating live analog synthesizers (something which 16hz took to its logical extreme as a member of Push Move Click)and gaining a rep around the country for their heavyweight dubs. And so, we wish them all the best in their new home, and hope to reunite the Dirty Collective in Germany this summer. Here's the lads themselves recorded from DJ Welfare's Welfare Clinic on Raidio Na Life, stardate 03/12/2008. Go n’eirí an t-ádh is an bóthar libh a chairde.

The Land Of Eternal Waiting




Spring has sprung. Today in Dublin, its (relatively) warm, the sky is blue save for a few fluffy white floaters, the dog is going mad at me to take her out chasing crows, and there are spots of purple and blue appearing on my decimated lawn. After two summers that never happened, and the sight of our country crumbling as the rich well and truly fucked the poor, the national mood is one of baited breath. The big god in the sky is reborn - I hope. This time last year it was dark, freezing cold and pissing rain every day, and I did this mix. A new one is on the way, but for now do enjoy last february's podcast (again).

An oldie, but we love it. Nighty Night.

Not A Joke




After I saw this, I spat my cornflakes out. But this is even more sad. Be warned, it goes on for more than 4 minutes.

The Roots Of El-B




"During 2000-2002 a brief but influential window opened in urban music. The focus of Drum n Bass culture had moved out of its London heartland and UK Garage started to implode under the weight of commercial expectation . Between these forces one man, Lewis Beadle aka El-B, assembled a production crew in Streatham, South London, whose influence was to be felt for the rest of the decade..."


Ammunition and Blackdown's follow up to the excellent Roots Of Dubstep compilation has finally dropped at Dubplate - it features hard to find gems such as this one:

My Mate Liamo




..does nice graf. Doesn't like McD's.

Memories








Too much bad news these last few months, it seems the country is slipping back to where it was when these tunes were the soundtrack to life, when I only owned one pair of runners (which I kept clean with a toothbrush), and went to school with nothing but margarine on white bread sandwiches. I reckon its time to do a Recession Session mix of the records I bought when I first began to collect a bit of vinyl. I'll post it up when its done.

Féile Bar - Every Weekend




Kicking off this weekend for lovers of good music, every friday and saturday night in Féile (formerly Carnival), curated by Halfdutch, Handsome Paddy, MattJazz and Richbea. Free in.

Untold




This is a nice mix from Untold for Brazilian webthing Tranquera. I'm very fond of his style of production; somehow he wrings enough momentum and rhythm out of half step beats that some don't even seem to realise are there - check his releases on his Hemlock label. His remix work (quite a bit in this mix) echoes this ear for the darker without trying to be hard style of dubstep, a word that lately has come to mean different things to different people as they impose their personal musical tastes and habits on it. Anyway, check the mix below. You can never have too many 'The Knowledge' Remixes either...

Nice.

Grizzle Live @The Cavern 08/12/2007




Here's a set from Grizzle from back in the last month of 07. These tracks are all 06/07 productions from a man who has done a hell of a lot to inspire, encourage and, yes, nurture much of the emerging talent in Dublin city. His gigs (all his own dubs) are legendary, but few and far between. Enjoy this rare recording.
