Something sometimes something

OKkkk, so the thirteenth Rob!Run!Reach! aired on Tuesday. I know what you're thinking - how long does it take to boil potatoes? The answer might seem to depend on how many potatoes and how much water's involved, but in fact I think we can show that potatoes can act as a constant. On that note, I'd like to break it to y'all non-live (but not dead) listeners that I can't share the whole show this week, on account of only half of it recording. Gah, etc. Still, a lot of the GOOD stuff came in the first hour, and that's for real. It kicked off with a MASSIVE track from Kwaidan, and also includes some exclusive (and tremendous) Monkey Steak action. The recording fades out during I:CUBE, but I'm including the whole tracklist of the show below 'cos some of the other tracks were free downloads that I wanna link for y'all. Get clikkked:

BIGNESS! I listened to it back (to get the tracklist sorted) and man, some MASSIVE tracks there. The HOT CITY track from the start is right up there with some classic sounds, feelin it a LOT - more highpoint lowlife next week! Also more from that forthcoming Monkey Steak EP next week - it's a KILLER release! And that was a heavy round of dubstep-related sounds, nice to flex those bitsa wax occasionally, don't think I could manage more than a half-hour of half-step these days mind you. HOWEVER, next week I'll play some bits off the brand new Lloops album out on TheAgriculture - illbient meatssssss dubstep. Fresh!

So yeah, there's even more sound to be found. I've been meaning to link up this for a while but didn't get 'round to it. Tally / Taliesin from dutty artz / TheAgriculture (lots of slashes - he's also a Budapest / NY resident) has put together a mix that is on heavy rotation on my various stereos (not everything's getting properly scrobbled for some reason). You can grab it here - do it, trust me !

Up With The Times And Up With The Birds



I wandered out to the harbour wall. I saw a seagull eating a piece of crow. A wing. When it'd had enough for now it tucked the wing away for later. It tucked the folded black rag under its own wing and wandered towards the harbour wall.
He found a dead mole and slowly he took it apart
Then stared at the gobbets, feeling helpless.
He walked, he walked
Letting the translucent starry spaces
Blow in his ear cluelessly.
Another exclusive coming up for this week's show: newness from our man Invisible A's label Keep Up! - the exclamation's theirs, so let me add mine - newness!

I'm keeping up. Or starting to be getting there at last.

Back and twice as good

For good read long, for good. Yeah, that's it, Rob!Run!Reach! is back on air on ASR, every Tuesday from nine 'til eleven. HELL yeah, two hours. The purpose? Not just to overexpose myself, I do that for a day job. Nah, instead it's cos there's LOADS planned for the coming weeks:
  • Sexclusives (sexy exclusives, see) from Monkey Steak's new RATATOSK'S TREE e.p. out on Chrissy Murderbot's new Sleazetone records! 2-stepping bassline biggggggness AHaHAhaha!
  • Techlusive (exclusive put together on technics, see) mix from Juliun c90, big daddah of extraordinary electronics and ruff dancefloor action
  • Discolusive (exclusive disco) mix from Our Ambrose.
  • Maxclusive (maximal exclusive) minimal mix from DJ Spuddah, recently been seen and heard holdin it down BIG at the indispensable and compulsive MoskowDiskow (surely one of the best parties in the country right now, if you can get to LDN then get there).
  • Nectasculsive (nectar + exclusive) mix from Pollinate records' head man Rob Pollinate, showcasing label newness.
  • Academixlusive (work it out) interview and discussion with Miriama Young, artist and lecturer in contemporary and experimental music.
Alright, there was a conceit in there that got past its prime pretty quick. Still, exciting stuff, n'est pas?
