Thursday, October 29, 2009


As you may have gathered from the hulking great picture at the top of the page (thanks @jinnyjoe), our once-monthly night STANDARD at the Melody Bar has moved across the river to the basement of Le Cirk on Dame Street, Dublin 2(entrance to the basement is around the back on Dame Lane)..

There are at least three big reasons to celebrate:

1) We're there every second friday from 3oth October,
2) We have the pleasure of Worries Outernational's VOID Sound,
3) Its FREE entry!

Standard resident DJs Konspiracy, Halfdutch, Sub One and myself will be in attendance from 9pm till late, playing the best of the ukfunky, dubstep, grime and garage. We do a radio show every saturday night too if you're curious.

Hopefully its the start of some good things for the coming year.

Do drop in, everybody is welcome.

Bok Bok - Pacemaker Mix Volume 1

Here's Bok Bok's mix on Pacemaker, and its gold - back to his roots with classic Grime riddims.

Last Night 25/10/2009

Once again, here's last night's broadcast on Raidió Na Life. Suffering through (suspected) swine flu as it pissed down outside, and mumbling away in barely coherent urban Irish, we managed to hold it together. 45 mins of housey vibes from Sub One followed by 45 from me in the more grimy garage vein. Thanks to all who sent shouts in/got shouts out. Back again next week at the same time.

Whistla Sub FM 06/10/2009

I haven't mentioned Whistla's Show much lately, but if you love the otherwise undefinable future garage sounds he plays, no doubt you've been keeping an ear open every tuesday night. Here's a great one from a couple of weeks back, a lot worth tracking down from it too.

JME - Over Me

Boy Better Know

A big highlight of Rinse's 15th back in the summer was JME, Skepta, Maximum, Jammer, and Frisco's performance. For us Grime-starved paddies it felt like a one-off being there, the crowd were in the palm of their hands for the whole set. Nice to be able to re-live it below (download link HERE)

The line up for the second event at Matter is just as jaw dropping as the first. We're too broke to attend, if you make it let us know how it goes. Bah.

Last Night 03/10/2009

It was a messy affair last night, with myself and B fairly under the weather and worn out, so expect dodginess. Otherwise the show is on a wonky grime sort of flex. Tune in again next week at the same time.


Tracklist is on the way...slowly but surely

Scary Eire - Twisted

Where were you in '92, yakuntcha?

The Scary Era' is back in stock in Freebird Records in Dublin - there's a limited number of copies of the early 90s classic so get down there sharpish if you missed it.
