Ear Con75 – 18 Tons
Sorry I’m so brief this week, I’m bouncing to Eolica in a few hours time. I finally got my ear mittens around some Footwork, for those that are genre hungry. Next month the label Planet Mu drop an ep from the Ghettotechnitianz, six tracks based in house but branching out into the future with reversed acid basslines and offkey quirky shit, well that’s what got me. DJ Earl and DJ Manny represent.
October also sees the release of the revoiced, re-rubbed version of the King Midas Sound album, Without You. It’s got contributions from Green Gartside, Cooly G, dBridge, Kode9 & The Spaceape, Mala, Kuedo, Ras G, Flying Lotus and more….time to catch breath.
More newness comes from Fatima riding a Floating Points production, The Moody Boyz, with an Oriental sounding production…you been digging in some crates Tony?

The Copenhagen Climate Summit has come and gone.
The mud-slinging for it’s failure is in full swing with the UK and US governments laying the fault at the feet of China.
As George Monbiot of the Guardian wrote
this morning…(For Obama) ‘to push a strong climate programme through the Senate, many of whose members are wholly-owned subsidiaries of the energy industry, would have been the political battle of his life.’
His campaign for the US presidency was based on ‘Change’.
Change, just not yet.
