DJ Kicks: Kode9

April 22, 2010

another Burial spoof?  maybe

I found this article as I was cruising around the red bull music academy website:

Details have been announced for Kode9‘s edition of DJ-Kicks, due for release this June.

The Hyperdub boss took a no-nonsense approach to assembling the mix, compiling what he describes as “just a snapshot of my DJ sets from the first half of 2010.” The tracklist is heavy on UK funky, broken beat, grime and R&B, but surprisingly light on on the genre Kode9 helped vault into widespread popularity: dubstep.

“[The mix is] definitely not an exploration of my musical heritage, but it’s not all new stuff. It probably signifies something about my relationship to dubstep that the mix only has a few dubstep tunes in it… Unfortunately, I fear some listeners, because of my background, will think that all the tracks are just mutations of dubstep.”

In addition to tracks by Aardvarck, Digital Mystikz, Zomby and Cooly G, the mix will feature an exclusive track by Kode9, entitled “You Don’t Wash.” The compilation will be the third installment of DJ-Kicks this year, following contributions by The Juan Maclean and James Holden.

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.
