Into The Woods

This is a treat, an hour long mix Nancy Noise has done for an upcoming festival put on by Boy’s Own. Nancy will be playing along with Terry Farley, Omar S and a bunch of other Balearic names. This is a summery, up, good vibes mix with some latin, some Frenchness, some afro and plenty of bounce. As a bonus you can download it for free too.

Three Piece

Andrew Weatherall must have been going without sleep recently given his prolific remixing output. Here’s three new ones for your Thursday.

This one is a weird, frantic, dubby thing with scratchy guitar and yelping, not a million miles from The Slits. It’s not The Slits though, it’s The Orielles, out on Heavenly. This is Part 2, so there must be a Part 1 somewhere too. I’ll keep you posted.

This is the Mix 2 of of Balearic Queen Nancy Noise’s Azizi’s Dance, following Mix 1 which I posted last week- subtle and spacey with some snatches of conversation just out of earshot and rather nice.

Finally, Weatherall has turned in not one, not two, not even three, but four different remixes for Swiss pioneers Yello, all different versions of the track Frautonium from their new album. This one has bleeps and noises and glides about the place.

For The Many

Getting up this morning to find that the exit poll which caused my jaw to drop several inches when it was announced at 10 pm last night was petty much spot on was a wonderful feeling. I stayed up for a while but went to bed before it was clear what the result was. This morning’s news- Theresa May’s cynical bid for a personal majority completely scuppered, hanging on as the leader of a minority government was good enough on its own. The massive increases made by Labour, the collapse of UKIP, the high turnout especially among younger voters, the rejection by the voters of an entirely negative Tory campaign- these are the things that put a smile on the face. Having been on the losing side so often politically, Friday 9th June felt like victory.

With perfect timing, to celebrate, here’s a new Andrew Weatherall remix, this time of Nancy Noise.
