Global Gathering!

Wednesday, 30 June 2010 at 09:45
For most of you that don't know Global Gathering is one of the biggest dance music festivals in the UK along with the likes of Creamfields.
Just check this line up out!!

I'm lucky enough to be able to go to Global this year, not only that but going as a VIP! Not to mention I'm gonna be in a chalet/hut type thing with the mrs which has 2 beds in it! Now if that's not how to spend your time at global gathering I don't know what is?!
As you can see from the line up there are A LOT of promising acts! If you go on the website you can see who's on each of the 8 main stages on each of the days. It's gonna be one heck of a 2 days.

People I'm looking forward to seeing the most are:

- Faithless, as I've never seen them before.
- Fedde le Grand, just because he is who he is!
- Booka Shade (Live), will need a deep house fix.
- Friction, because he's a BADMAN on the decks.
- Above & Beyond, because they're just legendary.
- Others include; Spor, Emalkay, Hixxy, Eric Prydz, Kissy Sell Out and possibly Lisa Lashes.

It has been a while since I posted anything which I'm sorry for, will hopefully be posting more stuff on here soon and will deffo let you know about how the festival is!

For now check out my youtube channel and hopefully it will put a smile on your face


Sex Sax

Trouble and Bass head huncho Drop The Lime returns with certainly one of the tunes of summer - 'Sex Sax'. The snazzy saxophone loop combined with a bundle of bass make this a tune for the coming months. On the Ep there's remixes from Bart B More, Sinden & more. You can purchase it here: Boomkat

Italy just came crashing out of the World Cup. Defeated by Slovakia?! Today is the day of the underdog. Here are a duo who are probably under your radar - Faction and Modified Motion. A 'special partnership' between the USA and UK if you will.


To whet your appetite:

Faction and Modified Motion - The Future

Faction and Modified Motion - Don't Go

Sleep and Smoke

2 tracks from Overscore, with plenty of late night ambience and emotion floating about in them. The bass is low so ya might want to turn on your sub. First up we have some mellowed-out old school hip hopstrumental flavour in Antique Memories. Moon Zoot does exactly what it says on the tin - future garage goes to space.

Ideal soundtrack to your cigarette (or anything else you might like to smoke)

Shad. Canadian rapper (read 'social poet') extraodinaire. No.3 on my favourite hip hop artists list. His third album TSOL (true sounds of liberty) just dropped.

... it's insane. Debut single from it 'Yaa I Get It' is no questions my track of the year so far. The production has been handled by various studioheads but is far more polished than his debut full-length When This Is Over, definitely stepping in the right direction. On that disc, he showed massive promise but suffered overall from slightly lacklustre production ('Question Marks / 'Wild').

Go buy it, you will not be disappointed. Itunes

The sun is creeping out and here's the soundtrack. Our man tintin has done a booming mix for the Parklife competition. Chockablock with 2step, tropical vibes and bass. Get it playing.

Dizzee Rascal's new tune is a disco flashback.

Prediction - will be huge. More importantly, veteran legend DJ Derek is in the video!
