Seth Troxler: Techno Live Set Podcast

Mitzi mix no. 7

I've only heard a couple of these guys' mixtapes but so far they are all off the funk and soul charts:

Update: They've taken it off their soundcloud for some reason but you can check it out and download it from their tumblr: http://hellomitzi.tumblr.com/post/23927670518/mitzitape7

I heard the following (amazing) song for the first time on a Mitzi mix:


Infinity Ink new tune: Infinity

Catchy as:

Magic Tape 23

This opens with the new Flight Facilities tune. It's SO good:

The Magician plays Forbidden Fruit on Sunday 3rd June.


Paul Kalkbrenner - Berlin Calling / DEMF live set

I got the Berlin Calling DVD for my friend Paul at Christmas and we only just watched it a couple of weeks ago. I knew the soundtrack would be good but I didn't expect it to be a great film as well. Kalkbrenner plays Ickarus, a DJ trying to produce a new album while struggling with drug problems. It moves along at a fair clip punctuated with deadly tunes. And Kalkbrenner can ACT. I loved it. We kept turning the volume up when a song came on. It got pretty loud. I'd recommend watching it before you go out, because you're going to want to go out after anyway.

Check out the trailer here. While I was off buying real DVDs like a some kind of Luddite idiot, the people of the interweb were making it possible to stream the whole thing - click here to watch it.

Also, this: a sweet live set he did at Detroit Electronic Music Festival last year, check it out if you haven't heard it already, it's got a lot of the tunes from the Berlin Calling soundtrack in it:

Paul Kalkbrenner is playing in The Olympia this Thursday. We bought tickets pretty much straight after watching the movie. You can get some here.

3 sweet Alfonso Ribeiro videos

"You're next"

Came across this photo of Alfonso Ribeiro ( aka Carlton Banks) with Michael Jackson a while ago - they were in a Pepsi commercial together. Never realised Alfonso was a proper 80s child star:

He also released this single (it sounds like it's been recorded from a wonky record player!)

20 May 2012


I went to see Akira in Lighthouse Cinema last week - as part of their Fight House season - a load of action flicks picked by Gareth Evans (who directed The Raid). I hadn't seen it in about 8 years and never before in the cinema. It pretty much blew my mind. I'd forgotten everything about it, including how awesome the soundtrack is:

It was also slick it was the non dubbed version, with english subtitles, made it even cooler. This HD clip is dubbed, which makes sense as it's an animated film, but it was even cooler in Japanese.


Chris Coco's Melodica radio show

Something a little bit different with this radio show - some pretty experimental stuff - but don't let that put you off. Apparently you don't have to listen to banging tunes all day. It also has a tune from One Little Plane as well, whose new album is produced by Kieran Hebden (aka Four Tet), so that's worth a listen. Happy Sunday.

Plenty more sweet jams at www.mixcloud.com/chriscoco/
