Music That I've Been Feeling Recently

I've been listening to a heck of lot of music recently, some new and some old. Of all the stuff that I've been listening to, there are three labels in particular that have made me want to write this: 'Dirty Demos', 'Noisy Meditation' and 'Cambrian Line'.

I'm going to start off with an album by Guillaume Gargaud called 'Le Lieu'. It was released on Dirty Demos in June 2008 and is limited to 150 CDRs. I was lucky enough to receive one from Adam Baker who I interviewed for Futurepast zine and runs Dirty Demos. The album is great from start to finish, it is what I would call soundscape music, I'm not sure what else to call it. It's an album that I have listened to regularly while driving to work and back home again. I don't even know what exactly to write about it! It's very enjoyable to listen to and I think it's very accessible too. When I listen to it, it makes me feel like I am sitting deep in a cave somewhere and meditat…

Movement@PST, Birmingham UK

Another brilliant night organised by INWYK mastermind Burlish.

RSD was the highlight of the night, he played a wicked set with a good variety of tunes that kept everyone bubbling away. The system was sounding good too. My highlight was when he played this tune that had the vocal 'jump around because you have the stamina'. It reminded me of the old Jungle tune by Bizzy B and TDK (I think) because it uses the same vocal. That tune smashed it!

The local DJ's (Feva, Flo, Goosensei, Burlish) that played on the night did a wicked job of warming the crowd up, and then keeping them going after RSD.

Bring on the next one :)
