It's me, Rogue Fader. Remember...? Your sporadic mix blogger. Yes I realise it's has been almost 2 months since my last post. That is pretty slack... but shiz has been going down you see. Weddings, work, Glasto, all takes it's toll on the mind and the body. Speaking of Glastonbury, and what a week that was. In the 13 or so years I've been going I can't say I remember a better one (Although, tbh, I can't remember much of the others anyway - as my old man says 'If you can remember it, you weren't really there') Was great to catch fellow Sheffield jock and all round sound lad Arnivore! on the Saturday night at Pluto's Bazaar in Shangri-La. A belter of a set, for sure. And followed by Scour Supremo that is Spinforth, shiz was breaking loose that night, I can tell you!
So am glad to say I'm over the electro brain-shocks of the last few weeks and back with another Friday selector of ear fuel to get you through your day. And first up is the for-mentioned Cool Beans creator Arnivore!. It's a tasty little 30 mins of pure party vibes skilfully blended together with some serious toe-tappage guaranteed for the listener. And if you dig, check out his Soundcloud more.
But that's not all. That's not enough to get you to lunch time. So ahead of his last ever gig in Sheffield tonight, I've got a mix by Bristol's oldest DJ - Reggae veteran DJ Derek. I've never had the chance to see him live so was elated to find out he's playing at my workplace after my shift tonight. Here is a live set from back in 2008 at Neuropol. You can also check Arnivore's interview with this legend here.
Until next time...
