09 06 20 makhlukhalus

djing in a gallery before, between and after a selection of pretty far out noise artists. one extracting intimate sounds from some bones and scrap metal, another screaming over ungodly analog distortion, it was a chance to play some of the obscure beatless treasures that had been washed up on the shores of the web, all mixed together live with feedback and effects. heres half an hour of it.

09 05 09 hayley hoops house party

great party, beautiful crowd including local musicians who stepped up to add sounds into the mix. had an amazing jam with an accordionist and sax player, recording and then playing back their playing while they harmonised live with loops of themselves. or something.
this is only the last 35 minutes of the 6 hour set. included as an example of ‘warming down’ a party, most had gone home, those left on the floor were getting really freaky. this starts from the moment hayley jumped on a horse…

09 01 18 sketch city eighties edition

this is a regular night where the crowd are given free art materials and allowed to draw all over the place so the warehouse is covered with art, and full of sudden artists. so much fun to play to people getting creative. this month was the eighties special, so there was a graffiti battle on giant robots, and a breaking crew too. have you ever seen people bodypopping to aphex twin? neither had we…

08 12 31 nye ger party

its new years eve and we’re in a beautiful mongolian ger set up in a large organic garden. someone’s gone nuts at the hire place and got a smoke machine, giant mirror ball, strobe and lasers. the crowd was a lot larger than expected, but still full of the most wonderful people. thanks to everyone who made this party happen, it truly was a special one.

this recording is from 11pm until just after midnight (before that there was a blues band). we removed the gap at around midnight where the mic wasn’t recorded, so you’ll have to imagine everybody counting down, and then singing along to the first song of 2009

picture the scene, turned up to this massive warehouse space, completely emptied by this guy banging out terrible noisecore jungle to an empty floor. starting from there, took it right down to ‘chilled’, brought what was left of the crowd back and gradually cranked it up to ‘nutty’ in around 30 minutes
