WhoMadeWho: Worldwide Episode 1



Thank you Zonja for telling me about this. Was just thinking about WhoMadeWho the other day when I found an old email (in the olden days before I had Facebook) telling my friend Cian about this song 'Hello Empty Room' I'd heard and how amazing it was. Cian was all like, yeah, saw them live in Sonar last year, welcome to 2005. Anyway, here they are playing some REALLY awesome tunes they like. It's SO good, and always great to hear people talk about tunes they like. Thanks Z!

Tiny Choons on Clear Haze: Episode 1


It's been a while but Tiny Choons are back on the interweb airwaves with a new podcast in a new home on the excellent Clear Haze! We will (hopefully) have a monthly show in 2017, schedules permitting! This episode was our first show in the new studio, recorded near the end of last year, featuring tunes from LIV, Soft Hair, Tanlines and loads more. Don't worry, we're still unable to pronounce any DJ names.

Thanks Clear Haze for having us!

Fleetmac Wood Mix Volume 5



Deadly, there's a new one!



Hypnotized - Zambon Edit
Edge of Seventeen - The Starkiller's Seventeen Lightyears Remix
Storm - Roxanne Roll Remix
Hold Me - Twin Sun Edit
Gold Dust Woman - Twin Sun Edit
World Turning - Dean Kenny Remix
Family Man - Flight Facilities Edit
Dreams - Autobody Remix
Lightning Strikes - Twin Sun Edit
Landslide - LOOTER Remix

On the off chance it's not enough said. Fleetmac Wood throw parties where they just play Fleetwood Mac tunes and edits. These mixes are full of those edits cut with soundbites of interviews with the band and are an absolute pleasure to behear, if you like that sort of thing.

Don Pimpon - Around The World



SO, Sesame Street in Spain is called Barrio Sésamo and one of the characters is called Don Pimpon. I'm not sure, but despite the sweet hip hop name, I think he is some kind of farmer / owl, and he hangs out with a hedgehog called Espineta. Anyway, some genius made this video and my Spanish (but predictably human) friend Lucia showed it to me ages ago. I love it.
