Thank Cubik For The Musik

I found this epic last week and remembered I had meant to use it as an all-dayer on the spaceinvader show after Cubik left in January but as the show ended before I did, it just sat there taking up a huge amount of harddrive space instead.

Charlie Dark is fundraising for RAFT

Please could you go to the link below and sponsor Charlie 'Daddy' Dark a few quid for running the London Marathon tomorrow. I say running, he is aiming for sub 4 hours so he's sprinting it in my eyes!

The man really is a living legend. Firstly as part of Attica Blues he made some of the few Mo Wax records which haven't dated too badly, as a poet and teacher and in the last few years with his Run Dem crew.

I know I owe him more than a few pounds. Not only has he been so generous to offer me advice and encouragement with running but really took some time out to write some great advice when I was doing my teaching practice.

He is running tomorrow on behalf of RAFT, an independent charity working to prevent and improve the treatment of major traumas such as burns, wounds and cancers of the skin through advances in medical research and in reconstructive plastic surgery. Please refer to our website for further information.

Brotto Remixes

Here is second release from teaandcakerecords, Brotto Remixes. 

Am not certain Tim will necessarily agree with this so this is all my opinion but I always liked (no that's a lie, I actually often hated) when records used to come in two parts; the original release and then the remixes and if you bought the original but really wanted all those Morales Red Zone dub mixes, then you had to get the second part too.

Anyway, I think there is something for everyone in this set. The glitchy hip hop of Brotto's original goes off down several roads marked "Italian electro", via some dubstep from Israel and beats from Slovakia before winding up back in the UK for what I am claiming a first (and probably last) - some minimal 2step from Matt The Good and finished off with Brotto's own reworking with a rather large, checky sample. 

Check them all out here:

Round Up

Just a quick round up of some bits I've recently liked on bandcamp and mixcloud.

Firstly, Steve Miggedy Maestro adds another limited freebie to his growing collection of edits. Rumours are this one has a Philly connection. Maybe some MFSB. 

And also check this clip of the new Julie Dexter album which Steve has been producing. 

Keeping on the spaceinvader friends producing new material, Golau Glau have a new EP called Somato. For more of the background on them and the release, see also this interview with Sonic Router

Jared Covington's Cannibalist Manifesto shows are (unsurprisingly) all absolutely essential listens and very educational on stuff I'm not hearing anywhere else really. 

Check the latest show below and the following links are all free downloads of tracks he has been playing. 

Sacred Animals - Welcome Home (Remixes)

Rites Wild - Rites Wild EP

Featureless Ghost - Take It Out

And then one he didn't put me onto but I think it sort of fits in with the sound; 

A Dead Forest - Antique EP

XLII has released a bonus second part to the Red Cross Japan charity compilation, Nihon Kizuna, with some great tracks by Blue Daisy, Machinedrum and Mr Beatnick amonst many others. It's pay what you want so pay as much as you can.

The Roots + Clyde Stubblefield + Chuck D + Fight The Power

And finally, John Legend covering Adele mixed with the beats from Amerie sounds like it should be as exciting as buying cds in Asda but is actually much much better than that.
