Stuck in Ibiza

Ever seen that Twitter account ‘DJs complaining‘? This week’s strikes by air traffic controllers lead to quite a few poor souls being stuck in Ibiza. The upside of this is a spate of productivity, and lots of lovely mixes being uploaded.

Heidi‘s offering takes me back to our arrival at Sonar this year, jumping straight into a cab to her Jackathon vs Pets Recordings night and dancing non stop until falling into the apartment to sleep 10 hours later. Good times.

If you cool and she satisfied how come that bitch just paged me…

YES GORGON CITY FOR THE WEEKEND!!!! There is so much energy in this set it makes me want to do this (much faster)

All the big hitters, a bit of Jimi, a bit of Obie Trice. Turn it up.

Monologues

Behling & Simpson
Futureboogie‘s Behling & Simpson have put together a tasty little mix of so-far unreleased treats for your downloadable pleasure.

It’s very Behling & Simpson; they have an unparalleled knack of perfecting this skippy little off-beat that gives their productions a sense of percussiony, rolling type movement – somewhat hard to describe but if you listen to a lot of their records (I do) then it’s very much a signature style. Very pleased to see variations on this theme in the new stuff, and this looks like a good few EPs worth at least.

They’re actually playing a three hour set at the Rhythm Factory tomorrow night. More details here.

Behling & Simpson – Salsa Verde
Behling & Simpson – Never Knew
Behling & Simpson – Muted

The Pre-Game

Miami party-listings and DJ mentions are getting buzzing as the music industry packs its bags for South Beach, shakes off the winter cobwebs and reminds itself again what it feels like to dance with warm sand between its toes. This, for me, is where summer begins, and even in the years we don’t attend, hearing the new tracks and sets that come back is almost good enough as we start planning the open-air-dancing season.

You can hear that excitement in the tempo of this little number from Heidi – her March Radio 1 set minus the talking in between, so you can download parts I and II, put them in your ears, and go outside.

Turn. It. Up.

catz-n-dogz-friends-leaves A Catz n’ Dogz mix is always completely and utterly ridiculous. Every single one, and every single time I see them play out, it’s always a complete new set of tracks that blows my mind, mixed in with absolute precision and layered up to a peak.

Well they’ve outdone themselves ahead of their appearance at The Warehouse Project tonight. I think I’m about to rupture an eardrum.

No download or track list yet but I’m begging them at the moment – watch this space.
