aphex twin live – coachella 08

April 21, 2010

two years ago this month, mid afternoon under the big top, on a polo field in the california desert… we were there. one of the most incredible shows i’ve ever been to!

it isn’t that often that you come across a recording of a show that you were actually present for so it has always been fun for me to listen to this set, remembering what the feeling was, the vibe in the crowd, the energy and sound, what the dj was doing.  the set started off with everyone hyped but not really knowing what to expect (why is he sitting down?), then a calming and everyone dancing and happy, followed by confusion, still bodies and awkwardness (genius transition @ 23:50!) i’m thinking this is getting good, bring it on…

and then he stood up.

miss you

January 20, 2010

It seems a double loss this month to learn of both the end of much loved website and podcast brokenbeatradio.com, as well as the music career of Dominic Stanton aka Domu/Umod/Sonar Circle etc.  Perhaps the writing was on the wall, limited activity and a comparative lack of updated podcasts the last few years from broken beat radio and a few telling interviews in the case of Domu.  So And So, no longer is the domain brokenbeatradio.com, all that remains is a list of dead links for what was once one of the best podcasts running 2004-2009 (oh why did I delete those mixes!).   Domu, however, leaves behind a legacy of productions that will be with us forever (should we manage to track them down, damn limited pressings!). It is comforting though that at least he provided parting words, touching at that.

Below, a few domu highlights and some vids from the old bnb radio site.

Domu – Worldwide

Umod – All In My Mind

Sonar Circle – Mist From Mars
