Trippin’ On MD

Big one ahead this Sunday night as we support one of our fav bands in the Ulster Sports Club. The amazing Minami Deutsch stop off in Belfast for Strange Victory events on their current world tour. The Japaneese kraut rock specialists also put out some of our fav music on the great Hoga Nord who recently released our own 7″, double celebrations this Sunday.

Five reasons why we rate MD below…

Big In Belgium

The Glimmers/Glimmer Twins always had a sense of fun about them. Passionate music lovers no doubt – but they never took the scene too seriously. David and Mo could effortlessly move around genres without losing the dance floor. Just check out their comps for proof. 


Someone I’ve been buying the music of and playing in sets for a while now is Dublin’s Matthew Flanagan (aka Defekt).

Always a perfect balance between old school electro values and futuristic synthesis, with first class production values.

Below are five that sound beamed in…

A Good Pounding

Easily one of the greats in this thing called “Dance” has to be the late Caspar Pound.

Originally from Peterborough, at the age of only 19 he released the ground breaking “Total Confusion” and went on to found the Rising High & Sapho labels. Tragically passing away in 2004 at the age of 33, yet leaving behind one of the best & most exciting UK back cat legacies.

Since we haven’t done a post in a while, here are ten from a forefather that paved the way for so much (RIP).

Early Doors

Always great to have the whole night to play music, especially in the Working Men’s Club. Warm ups can often be the most rewarding part of djing and Timmy and myself much prefer to get the time to move around musically. Pretty much any DJ should be able to keep people dancing at peak time but what else do they have in their bag for the other part of the night?

5 below plus a recording of us early doors last Saturday night here!

Shop Local

A great thing happened recently in Belfast, it gained a world class record store called Sound Advice. Marion Hawkes has created something wonderful in the east of the city that is great for both brand new & second hand shopping. Stellar regular selections carriage free on your doorstep are not to be taken for granted and as a result I will feature round ups of purchases on here.

Five essentials bought in Sound Advice below…

Cold As…

You know anybody who calls their label ‘Electric Ice’ has to (hopefully) be the real deal.

Well, luckily for us Larry Joseph was a very funky man.

Take A Trip

There is always a place for good acid in our sets, like dub music it has a timeless quailty specially when executed with a less is more approach.  Five great examples (all different) of how to deliver an acid line below…
