Andy Earley – Funkenstein 1

New mix from Bootle Bomber Andy Earley is in, a selection of body popping classics from yesteryear. Although BPMs are no longer an issue for this vertically challenged DJ, naming his mixes clearly is. The selection though is great and evidence of his continued stock around the city, what with him recently being made Friday resident at Santa Chupitos.

Whatever you do though, do NOT feed him after midnight.

Yousef – 21st Century House music #32 Live from Circus

DSC_2494

Yousef’s 21st Century House Music radio show is always a great vantage point to check out some of the killer tracks around in house music, but the latest instalment is a bit different in that it featured an hour from his set at Circus‘ Boxing Day showcase at the Camp & Furnace. An extra hour has been added to it from soundcloud and the result is a cracker, particularly the way it builds gently from melodic and deep house. No chat, just grooves and grooves. Dig it below.

Bicep prep Hot Jamz 2

The first instalment of Bicep’s Hot Jamz back in September 2011 is one of the best mixes I’ve ever heard, period. Frothing disco jams, cranky electro funk and proper jig tastic brilliance, I’ve blogged about it on these pages twice. Done in conjunction with We Love… Space on the Ransom Note, it was an afterparty staple for ages, one of those mixes you lash on when you’ve stupidly stayed up too late with one or two miscreants.

They dropped part 2 as part of their recent Rinse FM takeover and the results are below. Time will tell if it is as essential as the last one, but on first listen it’s lifted me out of my early week blues with deft ease. Big up Bicep!

ANiMAL get set to unleash ‘I am Fire’

Bass music punks ANiMAL are a new band tearing the shit out of dancefloors, stadiums and concert halls near you, kind of like an aural orgy involving Borgore, Rage Against the Machine and the Sex Pistols. They have a brand new single out soon entitled ‘I am Fire’, released on Monday 17th December with a sound that couldn’t be any less festive if it tried. That said, their intensity is perfect for those who love their bass music and dubstep a little bolshier than usual.

There’s a bit more to the force of their music, as the vidoe to previously given away for free track ‘Keep the Fire burning’ showcases below with it’s anarchistic message relayed through Madrid riot footage. Definitely a band to keep an eye on.

Terry Callier – The Windmill Hill Sessions

Massive Attack have released a free mixtape made from the sessions they created with the legendary Terry Callier who passed away in October. It’s something else. Stream below.

Acid Mondays Interview on Pulse

“Ibiza is forever changing, and evolving. This summer was great, Circo Loco was our favourite party, great vibe there this year but there were nights like Enter, Music On and El Row that bought something fresh to the table. Also a lot more daytime/beach parties this year which is great as you cant beat partying outside in the sun.”

First ever article up on Pulse, speaking to Acid Mondays ahead of them playing for Circus in Liverpool and London this month. Hit the quote as usual. Exclusive mix with the story as well.

Darren Williams – October surprise mix

He’s a bit of a curveball thinker, is our Darren. There’s no denying the opinions thrown out there by the resident leftfield thinker of #GJBlog (yes, I’m a proper hashtag wanker now) are off kilter with the rest of society, but that doesn’t make them any less enlightening or entertaining. He’s also a bit of a DJ who throws records together to create interesting and thought provoking ideas.

This in evidence here with the opening three tracks, which sees Aftermath released hip-hop snapping out of a live recording of Joan Baez, before blurring into political discourse on George Bush which is overran atop of jazz. Dubya provides an accompaniment throughout with several soundbites discussing his stewardship segued to the music, which includes freaky funk from Jamie Lidell, social commentary form Gil Scott Heron and re-rubs of Rick James. There’s even a proper mental karaoke cover of Steve Miller Band riding shotgun with the original.

It’s a definite and very deliberate headfuck, much like the articles he throws forward on here. Disturbed and deranged? Yes, but equally it’s cleverely constructed and a hark back to the disco ethos of telling a story with a mix, although where Larry and Nicky focused on love and happiness Your Mother, as Darren’s DJ alter ego goes by, is swinging towards a much more eye-opening experience. Definitely not something you can just leave on in the background. Get stuck in folks.

PUTV DJ Mix

This weekend I am rocking up in London for Pump up the Volume, alongside headliner Tayo for the final set of the night. It’s a 90s revival party and it’s fancy dress, it will be beyond ridiculous and now there’s a natty DJ mix from the PUTV crew to promote it which you can stream below.

Want further information? Head on over to my previous post explaining it in full detail.

Gone Clubbin’ #1: October – on BnB now

“You simply cannot pick a bigger or more influential event to hit clubland in Liverpool than the original superclub, the place where I and thousands of others fell in love with dance music.”

I’ve started a brand new column on Beatsandbeyond.com where I pick the best clubbing picks, in my eyes, each month in Liveprool. I did do this originally on here back in January but this will now be a monthly thing over on BnB – I’ve even got my own Editors profile and everything.
