July 7, 2013

Dive Slow happens every third Friday of the month at Sticky Mike’s Frog Bar, Brighton. It’s a free-entry night, running from around 9pm until the wee hours of the next morning. I generally DJ for between five and six hours, depending on if I have a guest DJ or two along for the ride. The music policy: generally hip-hop, but with the occasional diversion.

Here’s what I played during the last Dive Slow, on June 21. If you like what you see, I can be contacted on Twitter regarding DJ sets elsewhere. (I do them, you know. You just need to ask.)

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.)

So next time – next time being April 19 (Facebook event link, that is) – don’t ask me for a thing. As not asking me means you can’t be disappointed. Thanks.
