I didn't really want to post it, and its old news at this stage. It just made my jaw hit the floor when I saw it. My mam had texted me to switch on the telly, no doubt her memory going back to when I used to walk the streets with a rolled up piece of lino with my little crew. It's beginning to feel like this country is actually travelling backwards in time. Ask Cheebah.
I remember going to see 4 Hero play a DJ set in Dublin, must have been 1999 or 2000 (a lot of 2000 Black dubs were played) and being delighted to hear where they were taking their sound. It was a great night, and I'll never forget the lad who was up front screwing up his face all night and shouting requests at the lads. After the last track finished and people began to call for more, I could hear what he was shouting. 'Mr Kirk's Nightmare!!!', over and over as the lights came up, a look of dissappointment on his face as they ignored him and wrapped up. It was clear the lads were ahead of their time.
This classic mix was recently uploaded to one of the better forums out there, and as it was always one of my favourite comps from the apparently brief but fertile period in the early noughties when West London's broken sound began to reach us here in Dublin, before much of it seemed to move further out of the club context and into 'nu-jazz'. As in the case of UKG, the only other person I knew who loved the sound at the time was Grizzle, whose vinyl broken beat collection is currently under my care...but like UKG, a wider audience has definitely opened up through the wide acceptance of dubstep (even if it is for the most generic, boring and narrowly defined end) so it should become easier to include some of he great and nuum-ignoring tracks in the sonic pallette. Should be. Enjoy it.

Here's my radio show from saturday. Plenty of nice new and old vinyl, along with some technical issues, fluffy needles and wobbly mixing. Broken, dubby, skippy, funky and grimey would be the best description.
DJ Halfdutch takes over at the same time next week. Thanks to the listeners.

Help an old man out. Listening to Marcus Nasty on Rinse always leaves me reeling, and every couple of tunes there's something there that I'd love to part with cash for. Last saturday my missus was in her pyjamas and going nowhere, so I put on a set from earlier in the month, and by the time this track came on she said 'fuck it, let's go out' and an hour later she was skanking out to Supercat, courtesy of Heatwave. The Nasty man is therefore stronger than feminax. So if you can help us out, please do. Anyone able to ID this one?
If you managed to miss the launch last friday of the Space 2 Pace label, fear not. Ricky has uploaded all the sets from the night along with tracklists for most of them...I'll update as more comes through. Click the DJs names to download.

If, like me, you're back to work in the morning and are shattered from last nights festivities, you can curl up into a ball, get under a blanket and not go out tonight. The soundtrack to your hangover recovery has been provided by The Golden One. Click the pic to listen / download.
Today is St Patrick's Day, a day where all over the world people who aren't Irish get bladdered drunk in celebration of the coming of christianity to Ireland. Dressed in green (for some reason) they celebrate. I'll be dressing in black to lament the day some Welsh god botherer (symbolically or otherwise) brought the crazy cult and the ensuing misery to this land. Join me in drowning my sorrows / celebrating having a day off poxy work.
First up today is this - a fundraiser for the Mantua Festival. Recreate the bog dance in the heart of Dublin's tourist hell, minus the mud but with the vomiting students.
Later on in the night, a very green faced looking Benga will be entertaining the crowd alongside the REACH lads.
Outside of Dublin, Dubculture has put on two shows for Paddy's Day - one in Galway (their home) and one across the pond in Bristol. Should be interesting.
Anyway, if you're at any of these tonight, be kind to each other, try not to get too messy and force broken glasses into each others faces tooooo much. Some of us have to live here.
PS If you arent Irish, try not to use the P Word when talking to us. Only we can use that, its ours.
Kicking off the Paddy's Day festivities in Dublin is this unmissable session, reminiscent of The Rogues Reunion some years back. Yes, its DJ Mek and the Rubberbandits tomorrow night in the heart of Temple Barf. Doors at 11.

This Friday night should be massive. Space2Pace aim to keep things at good old rollage tempo. Info can be found HERE.
P.S. Gremino unfortunately cant make it to Dub City tonight, so Ill be standing in for him, opening the nights festivities with some below-140 bpm stuff(breaking with the point of the night somewhat), so if you get down in time you can enjoy some auld dark garage vibes before the tempo ups a little. You have been warned.
"This is not a mix. Rather, this is a compilation of the best UK Funky I could find, taken from radio shows. I’m NOT pretending I have these tunes. Rather, I’m showcasing the best in UK Funky. Because, while funky is wonderful, there’s a lot of tunes out there I don’t like that much, and I wanted an hour of music I could point that would say, 'this is what I want. This is what I want to make...'"

Yes indeed, the lucky people of Limerick get to catch a (pretty rare these days) set from the man himself DJ Mek this Friday night at the underground, Baker Place in the city center. Cheebah have a little more info HERE - if you'd like to hear a set from Mescalero click HERE.
Those stuck in Dublin fear not - by months' end there will be a special night featuring Mek alongside The Rubberbandits in their first encounter of the Jackeen kind. More info as it comes through....
"It starts off house tempo, and moves up gradually to 140 bpm. I was three years old when the first tune was made! It's a good example of the kind of stuff I'm enjoying at the moment, and it features the A side of the next Hessle Audio release (HES007) Big up Joe!"
"This is my ongoing art project. Instead of releasing some sort of retrospective compilation of 21 years A Guy Called Gerald I've decided to make all of my music available here - past and present. I've noticed people have uploaded music that I thought everyone had forgotten about on youtube. But the quality on youtube is rubbish as people have digitised from their vinyls. I wanted to make sure people had access to the way that it was intended to sound - the equivalent of a director's cut. The sound on the original releases had to be compromised to fit on the vinyl - due to heavy "b-lineage". So now I'm opening the vaults and dusting off the old masters. Thankfully I recorded everything originally on DAT.
