Gold Panda

So! A new night began yesterday, into the early hours of this morning. 4/4 ISH is what we (that’s Daniel Copeman and I) are calling it: focusing on what he might call “bangers”. And, he does. And, generally, it went well.

Room was a bit quiet, but the set was more a feeler than a floor-filler – next time, in June, back at Brighton’s Green Door Store, everything will be angled for more immediate impact, and a little pre-event advertising should ensure some extra punters in attendance (right?). Keep an eye out for local promotion, and on my Twitter account for further information.

Here’s what was played…

Nosaj Thing

If there’s one thing that this playlist teaches us, it’s don’t bow to request pressure. At the third – maybe – time of asking, I agreed to play a track I’d never usually drop into a set; especially not one that I’m selling as containing fare from Kuedo to Kanye. (You know what I mean.)
