5 Beasts For The East

Never thought I would see the day I would be playing pumpers to a room full of dancers in East Belfast. Big thanks to Ballyhackamore Working Men’s Club and to those that came down. Don’t think the £3 pints helped my mixing abilities though…

Cover Ups

Sometimes a nice slice of well placed familiarity in a set can cause commotion. It’s that sense of I know this but I don’t know this version and can sit perfectly among the more obscure and brand new. Here are five covers that do justice or bring something new to the table!


Subway Records was a Belgian New Beat label. Like a lot of this stuff it was well patchy, but amongst the back catalogue are some amazing, weird, hypnotic one hit wonders. A lot of it is kind of balearic-ish or wouldn’t sound out of place in a Baldelli set, and some of it’s output are outright pumpers.

Weird label and definitely an influence for me at least on the new ‘originals’ me and Mr Bones are concocting.

If you do go down the discogs rabit hole, check the labels font. Nice!

Lesser Spotted Chemicals

Anyone else getting a big ESG meets MU vibe off that recent Chemical Bros Eve Of Destruction number?

If so check this little dubbed version we made to play in our club sets.

E.O.D (Black Bones DUB)

Also stay away from the obvious hits, below are five we dig from the CB/TDB vaults…
