This week we dived into drum & bass! I had a special guest Nathan help me listen to and comment on a selection of great tracks. We mainly played retro tunes but a couple of personal favourites and modern mixes as well. Whilst not a strictly drum & bass track, The Prodigy’s No Good (Start the Dance) was a highlight, as well as going even further back to 1993 with Origin Unknown and a mix of Valley of the Shadows.
Recently, I attended a pretty average gig.
And I don’t mean the music was rubbish. In fact, it was pretty top-notch gig and deserved a raging crowd. What made the gig sub-par was the dismal audience attendance.
Hosted by Lola and Helen.
In this Episode, we travelled back in time. We shared stories about our childhood, and played songs that brings back those childhood memories and reminds us of someone special in some cases. haha…..
We loved the choice of songs and we hope you do.
This weeks show sees the boys go in depth with Pokemon Go and Super Smash Brothers, as well as discussing the recent drop from Frank Ocean, a classic review of 50 Cent’s “Get Rich or Die Tryin”, and plenty more!
Hosted by Paul Waxman
In this episode I listen to Puddinghead, I really think the word “arung” exists,I discover Error Playin’ sounds like Aeroplane, and I nerd out over Ball Park Music for an hour.
Beats & Vinyl #7 – Beating the Week 4 Blues
The spring flowers may be blooming in Melbourne, but people are feeling the sting of assessments! This week we chilled out with some softer fun sounds to get you through the week 4 blues, as well as information on fun things to do around the Clayton Campus (for free!). Highlights included “Besos” from Atmosphere’s brand new album Fishing Blues, and the foot-stomping Bounce #9 from Charbel.
Tune in next week for a special drum & bass edition of Beats and Vinyl!
If you haven’t heard of Alex Lahey by now, you have definitely got to question whether or not you’ve been living under a rock. 2016 has been the year for the young singer/songwriter from Melbourne, from being given the green light by the magical Pitchfork, to opening this year’s Splendour in the Grass as Triple J’s Unearthed Winner.
If you have seen my earlier reviews, you will know that I am a massive fan of US jazz fusion supergroup Snarky Puppy. Too many times in previous years have I seen them headline the Melbourne International Jazz Festival or tour their latest album, and been unable to attend due to my age. But this year, I vowed to see them, at last an adult. Within a minute of receiving the email that Snarky Puppy had announced a new concert in Melbourne, I had the ticket booking page bookmarked to my laptop, and the opening time for tickets added to my phone’s calendar. I was not going to miss out this time!
