Hello strangers. Been tied up with getting our label onto the digital distribution thang, among other things. so the blog has been neglected. A week friday, Sept. 19th, is the beginning of Festival Boreal, situated by the coast of the town called Los Silos, Tenerife. The festival came into being several years ago, born at the unveiling of a skeleton of whale which oversees the spot where the event now takes place. On hand will be several local acts of various persuasions and textures, and countless activities, from the artistic, holistic, environmentally focused and the adventurous. I’ll be doing the closing set on Saturday night, which kinda became a tradition for awhile. The festival also returns to the coastal site, after a couple years up in the local square.
So I sign off with none other than…..’Back for another one’ by Casey Veggies Feat. Tyler, The Creator – Odd Future
Earl Sweatshirt, Left Brain, Tyler, The Creator, Hodgy Beats and the Odd Future crew get caught by lens man Terry Richardson, looks like fun.

Pitchfork mentioned how in the video a woman gets slapped, true, but so do three guys.
This weeks sixty minutes of thang holds the following in it’s mouth, Diplo remixing Travis Barker, Daedelus remixed by Sepalcure, Citymouth, more from the man of the moment, Tyler The Creator, getting worked over by J.Pants. One of my favorite records of the last 10 years is Charlie Watts, yes he of the Rolling Stones, in collaboration with Jim Keltner. The songs on their album are named after influential drummers and percussionists. I’m going with Airto for this week.
Last Friday, DJ Floro dropped a set at Txola, bliss, great selection across the board. He also blessed me with volumes two and three in his Republica Afrobeat series.
Kode9’s set on the Essential Mix from a few weeks back had me looking in my broken beat section, so and i have to give Mustang’s ‘Purple Moon’ a spin, frenetic drum programming at it’s best.
