ghostly picks stones throw / stones throw picks ghostly

September 5, 2010

I slept on this one . . .two of my favorite record labels picking their favorite songs from each others labels.  They are nice ones to have to complete the record collection and can be found for free or cheap on the internet if you look around.  Nothing really new in terms of songs, but a nice reminder of why these record labels are the best.

Official Album description: ‘To celebrate the unprecedented achievements of two of our favourite independent US labels we asked Peanut Butter Wolf who runs Stones Throw to pick his favourite tracks from Ghostly’s back catalogue; and in return asked Sam Valenti who runs Ghostly to pick his favourite tracks from Stones Throw’s back catalogue. The result is 20 tracks of some of the most innovative and fiercely independent US hip-hop, electronica, and jazz in the last 10 years.’

house

July 25, 2010

something very inevitable has been pulling selections back to minimal tech and chunky house lately.  seems fitting when they flow so well with ukf and those new ones by seiji, doc daneeka, jackal youth, greivous angel etc…  but then there are those slow house tracks, out on their own, stubbornly out of range but so so sexy.

can’t get enough of these records:

jitterbug – beaten trax ep

andy stott – tell me anything love nothing

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.
