BLW & Ouch v The Rest

TB playlist 02.01.12

Summary: First for 2012. Davido, DJ Sight, Consequence, DJ Olive & Demdike Stare. Compilations Finest Ego, Mad Hop Vol. 4 & Intergalactic Travels. Guest program and mix from BLW & Ouch.


Dang! Where to start on this one? There was no major feature but rather a number. So guess that means we best write bout them all. We would have usually spread out these musical treats over a series of shows, but this evening was our last episode before a summer break. Anyways features as follows…

First up the latest Finest Ego delivery, the Finest Ego - German / Austrian / Swiss compilation. We have played all of the installments in the collection and have grown to expect great things from this platform. This one does not disappoint and further builds on this must check series - essential listening. As such we played 7 tracks of the generous 33 on offer. See also the free downloads section for more - yes amazingly it’s a free download.

Sharing lots of their historical and cultural heritage, this copious collection contains work from producers of a wide range of musical manifestations – all located in the spectrum between traditional sample-based and organic sound to electronic and experimental compositions.

As well as the Finest Ego compilation we also checked in with the latest Mad Hop, Mad Hop Volume 4, and Intergalactic Travels thanks to Urban Waves. No doubt we will be playing more of these upon our return. See the free downloads section for links - yes these are also free downloads.

TB playlist 27.06.11

Summary: Dafu, Keor Meteor, Samiyam, Dexter, Lapalux, Electric Sea Spider, Gold Panda, Zomby, Distal, Radien mix ++

After the mix from label head Code (Subtle Audio/IRE) earlier in the month some requests came in for more DnB sounds. So this time the monthly mix was from fellow label head Raiden (Offkey/EST). We are particularly fond of the vibrations coming out of Eastern Europe, not just DnB, take the vast array of beats from the region… too many to mention here.
