Tom Vek - Music Television (by jackp1158)

Overly excited that Tom Vek is back in business tomorrow, heard a snippet of his new track and it hints at being a corker, did we expect anything less?! I’ve been listening to We Have Sound on repeat all week. Memories of dancing like it’s 2005, cans of cider for £1, and sitting on the fire escape ‘round the back of a friends flat so that we could watch the sun come up.

Class of 808: Mix | Summer Madness '89 Part 4


Great mix from a chap called Richie K - digging deep!

I think Class of 808 might just be my favourite blog and this mix is class.

To think I was only in single figures when this came out. Big and perhaps not clever, just another dance floor banger? I could bore you drawing lines from this to Jamie XX and denouncing slick cynical dance production but I won’t. I could also tell you about the time me and my old pal Ali bought two huge boxes of records at Portman Road car boot sale for £4.87 in assorted coins, and how we almost caused several accidents trying to get them home on our bikes, but alas its time for work. Enjoy.

Download Hard Mix - Defaults Album Free


The download link has been fixed. Album artwork and correct tags are included now. Download here

Next time I make a mixtape, Memories by Hard Mix will be one of the first tracks on there. I would’ve been more than happy to pay for this, now I can seek out some rare 7s instead.

Jamie xx - Far Nearer (full track + better sound quality)

Kudos to postdubstep for posting the full length  of this.

Jamie is killing it at the moment.

When I was a kid in the early 90s, I found near enough the whole series of Deep Heat compilations on vinyl in the bargain bin at Woolworths. Barely into double figures I had been pretty much oblivious to the music that they contained which tended more towards the major label profiteering of acid house and rave culture but there were a few classic tracks too. Looking back I guess it was pretty strange for a ten year old to be listening to the likes A Guy Called Gerald, Humanoid and Rhythm is Rhythm. How long would it have taken for me to find my love of the 808 clap without this chance encounter as a result of wanting to get the most out of my Woolworth voucher?

This is probably my favorite video of last year.

I wrote the words to this in Nagoya of all places, in that strange jet lag place, caught in some kind of sleep limbo that no amount of sweet tea in a can or Asahi can save you from. So you just ride it out. A Japanese game show runs in the background, you’re now sharing a bed with the air con unit ‘cause the windows don’t open and heat is radiating from the walls, ceiling, floor and a 4th dimension that you are now acutely aware of but can’t put into words. You wake up a stone lighter with a head full of fog and although it was painful you feel sad to leave that hotel room and the game show host that’s become like a brother. Even when you were right the edge, swearing that travel is over rated and thinking what to do with the carbon you could save, he was still full of hope and enthusiasm, if we stick with him, if we buy into this, we’ll be OK.

I’m about year late to the party on this one but there’s still plenty of cake to go around.

Did this weekend seem a little warmer? No chance we’re out of the cold yet but this track brings me a little closer and I love the “I’ll blank you so don’t bother trying to speak to me and please don’t stand next to me or I’ll see that you end up as a DONT in VICE magazine” nonchalance in the verses.

I love the sound of vinyl recorded to tape, even when the mastering is all messed up and the 7” comes out all crunched up, then you get it onto the tape and it compresses and wobbles. Tape wobble, crackle, unintentionally overdriven, haphazard use of analogue compression and limiting, flawed vocals and the wonder of a one take wonder.

I rekindled my love of cassette tapes about two years ago when I bought my friends old car after getting tipsy drunk on cider at a camp site in Essex. It has an odd shaped cassette player, this odd shape means that there is no hope of me upgrading this to a CD player. There’s only so much Radio 4 that a person can take, being able to recite news sound bites word for word is normally a warning sign, before things start to become wrong. So like a bickering 1950s stigma fearing soap opera couple, we’re stuck with each other. 

So, here is the tracklisting. I originally made it for my good friend Rich to prove that all this interesting pop music that I’ve been banging on about for months actually exists.
