Playlist: Dive Slow, January 18, 2013

January 19, 2013

Songs, in the order they were played, from the night of January 18, 2013. The next Dive Slow – where records much like these will be played – is held on February 8. Again, it’s at Sticky Mike’s Frog Bar, Brighton, and entry is free from 9pm. I start DJing around 9, and there’s a guest set from Woodpecker Wooliams to look forward to. Bonus. Here is a Facebook event for it.

If you like the look of this playlist and think, hell, I’ll have me some of that at my club/gig/birthday/festival/wake, you can totally find me on Twitter. Thanks.

Playlist: Dive Slow, December 14 2012

January 14, 2013

Oh, hi there.

Me playing records at people is something I like to do. I do it once a month at Sticky Mike’s Frog Bar in Brighton. I call this night Dive Slow. Forthcoming dates for your diary: January 18, February 8 and March 15. Links take you to Facebook event pages. These nights are free, and run from around 9pm.

For December’s night, the most splendid gentleman Ghostpoet played a terrifically high-tempo guest set, which had the (capacity, I should think, judging by the sweat) crowd bouncing like never before at a Dive Slow night. It was excellent times. In February Woodpecker Wooliams is calling in for a guest set. Will her selections be as max-BPM? You’ll have to come on down to find out.

Dive Slow, when I’m behind the decks, is pro-hip hop and beats and that. Electro fizzes and rap burps. To give you a flavour of what to expect should you head its way this month, next, or in March, here is December’s playlist…
