Shuffle podcast

I've started a new podcast over on my Mixcloud site called 'Shuffle', celebrating a little blue button on the most widely used audio software ever made.  It has transformed the way people listen to music - retrieving memories through dragging up random tracks from the past.

The Shuffle podcast will go through my own library and others' and put together 20 tracks that people may have forgotten, never heard before, hate, love, throw out the window... etc...  I hope that people are introduced to music and it has heads turning in surprise!

Week 1:

Bocca Grande - Adlibitum

Only discovered these two guys from Japan recently through their 'Procedere' track that has a remix by Morgan Geist - they're currently preparing an album which will no doubt be piano laden but a real smooth listen...

Jazzanova - Behold these days (Berlin '74)

I always look for Jazzanova when I want to hear something different - and they really are - downtempo, broken beat, hip hop, straddling the lower bpms with style.  Having Danny Krivit mix one of their tracks however means they are no small time!

Kurtis Blow - If I ruled the world (original mix)

Always been interested in the electro movement that grew into hip hop later... can you ever see a modern rapper rhyming for 7 minutes however???

R. Dean Taylor - Theres a ghost in my house

The definitive northern soul sound - I remember reading that people were desperate to get their hands on this, they were even flying over to the USA to find it... Then someone found a copy in a newspaper in a petrol station  - it had been under their noses all the time...

The Real Weald Tuesday - Still terminally ambivalent over you

Heard this on a Mud podcast, a group from Leicester promoting underground art, music and dancing which makes a real difference to those into real music in the city.

Gilles Peterson - La revolucion del Cuerpo (Auntie Flo remix)

A nice free present from the Huntley & Palmer's guys...

New Order - 586

Not sure why I bought this, sounds great though and real difference from hearing Blue Monday again!

Stone Poneys - Different drum

Yes alright its this one!  The one from the advert with the angels in it - the vocal stood out to me so went to find out what it was...

Fourtet & Rothko - Rivers become oceans

One of my friends recently described Fourtet's Fabric mix as 'Ricardo Villalobos playing garage', a recent discovery for me shamefully I'll be buying some more albums to find out more...

Wiley - Cash in my pocket

Cheesy... Haha - I really like this, energetic and the video is great!

Tiga - Far from here (Bascombe radio edit)

Nice catchy song this...

Sia - Where I belong

Used to get all my music from HMV - they used to do free cds with a purchase - bit like a promo cd with lots of genres on it - this was a great introduction to other artists such as Sia...

Lindstrom - Little drummer boy (Short edit)

Saw this come up and I thought OH NO!!!  Then saw it was the short edit and breathed a sigh of relief - I didn't want to sit through 42 minutes of little drummer boy this far from Xmas...

The Jam - Going underground

Great song, got it off one of those free cds that the newspapers give away at the weekends...

David K - Somewhere in my head (Original mix)

One of my newest house buys, eerie vocal which I'm a sucker for...

Blehorkestar Bakija Bakic - Fizheuer zieheuer (T2 Edit)

No idea how to pronounce this at all but I like it!  Quirky with an edit done by the mighty Todd Terje.

Brian Eno & David Byrne - Jezabel spirit

Pulled this out of the charts in the back of the book - Last Night A DJ Saved My Life

El_Txef_A - Rolling edit

Young Spanish guy making waves in the house world - keep an eye on him...

Kenneth Bager - Fragment 7 Les Fleurs (Album dub)

No idea where I got this from but its random as!

MGMT - Weekend wars

One of my favourite bands - love the whole album...
