White Light Mix #65 - Tyler Fedchuck (Radio Zero)

Was looking at Canadian radio station / mix site Radio Zero that I have posted from before and saw that they did a White Light Mix* last year, and it's whopper: super synthy and a dark 80s buzz. For more info about the track selection and a download link go here.

Giorgio Moroder – Night Drive (Reprise)
Daft Punk – Verdis Quo
Visage – Fade To Grey
Escape From New York – Save Our Love (instrumental)
John Carpenter – The End (part 2)
Moderat – A New Error
Acid Washed – General Motors, Detroit, America
Bicep – Darwin
Shit Robot – I Got A Feeling
Man Friday – Love Heartache (A Tom Moulton Mix)
Theo Parrish – Falling Up (Carl Craig Mix)
Nathan Fake – The Sky Was Pink (Holden Remix)
Chromatics – I’m On Fire
Kraftwerk – Franz Schubert / Endlos Endlos

Check out the Radio Zero mix I posted previously, and go to radiozero.ca/ for more!
If you like this kind of thing, you will probably also like Ghostboy's High Pressure Nights mix.

*If you don't know the White Light series, the idea is that all the mixes are made to be listened to on a night drive. Some of the ones I've listened to have been a bit ambient and purposefully weird, which doesn't really do it for me. However, I think I just haven't listened to enough of them, as this one is right up my street. If you can recommend any in particular please comment below!

Nile Rodgers' Red Bull Fireside Chat radio show

So there's a lot of Nile Rodgers buzz going around due to the current Daft Punk mania, but let's get one thing straight: the man was being a total ledge well before Daft Punk ever got their shiny robot mitts on him:
If you can't see the box above, click here.

1 Funny Bone (Unreleased Outtake) - Chic
2 Everybody Dance (12" Mix) - Chic
3 Dance Dance Dance (Yowsah Yowsah Yowsah) (12" Mix) - Chic
4 Savoir Faire - Chic
5 Good Times - Chic
6 Upside Down (Unreleased Chic Mix) - Diana Ross
7 We Are Family - Sister Sledge
8 Lost In Music - Sister Sledge
9 Let‘s Dance - David Bowie
10 The Wild Boys (Wilder Than Wild Boys) (Extended Mix) - Duran Duran
11 Like A Virgin - Madonna
12 Stay Out Of The Light - Nile Rodgers
13 Why (Extended Version) - Carly Simon
14 My Feet Keep Dancing - Chic

There is also a one hour BBC documentary about Nile called "The Hit Maker" I posted about a good while ago, check it out here. And if that's not enough for you, I'd also recommend reading his autobiography 'Le Freak' - although he is so sound he never really dishes as much dirt as I'd like him too, considering what he must have seen and gotten up to himself.

Nile plays with Chic on the Sunday of Forbidden Fruit - get tickets here.

I've posted other similarly sweet Red Bull radio shows where artists talk about their influences and careers, check out shows by Chromeo, Mayer Hawthorne, Holy Ghost!, Kim Ann Foxman, Breakbot or The Rapture.


Isaac Tichauer's April 2013 mix

If you like the sound of that, I've posted a bunch of stuff from the amazing French Express label before, check out some Perseus or some Moon Boots.


Solé Fixtape #11: Classixx

Another great mix from the slick Solé Bicycle company's Fixtape Series. Bikes and tunes, what's not to like. This one is chilled enough and kinda dreamy; from LA's Classixx, who are about to go on tour with The Presets and also Holy Ghost! - and are responsible for this deadly tune 'All You're Waiting For' featuring Nancy Whang.

Bonobo live at Koko (2009)

Live show from 2009. They don't call him Dream Bonoboat for nuthin*. It gets a little jazzy at times which I usually amn't into but they reign it in (apart from the insane drum and sax solos at the end, but by then you don't care) and it's just gorgeous and chilled. Nice touch at the very end with the photo of the crowd too.

I've posted another of his shows (audio only) from last year, check it out here.

Bonobo has a new album out called The North Borders, you can check it out on his You Tube channel here or buy it on bonobomusic.com/.

*They don't call him that. I just made it up.

I can never resist a play on names. This track is called Chill Pollins and renders one of my all time secret shames (loving 'Sussudio' by Phil Collins) cool (or at least socially acceptable) with some sweet edit action by Groove Motion. Free DL too!

The last Flight Facilities mix (2002 - 2012) for download!

Me, right now, listening to this mix. 

It's back! 

In case you missed it, Flight Facilities were Triple J's Saturday night mix residents for October so they made 4 mixes, each one covering a different decade. (This last one is 2002 - 2012). They went to amazing lengths for each mix, each set is chronological in order with classic tunes and modern edits, and cut with news reports of the time so it's like an awesome musical history lesson. It took them ages to put them together and you can check out the insane amount of research they did here.

This last mix has about 80 tracks in it and is like being driven around my own memory in a mesmerising musical Delorean. I can't even express how much I am enjoying it. IT HAS EVERYTHING. Well played FF.

The Nerdist podcast #340: Walton Goggins

I don't usually post about things to do with TV but I came across this podcast called The Nerdist (which is massively popular, I am so with it) and this episode is an interview with Walton Goggins. My mate Stuart and I had just been talking about Walton Goggins recently because of his amazing name and mad acting skillz (he played Shane in The Shield and still plays Boyd Crowder in Justified, and is brilliant in both) and then I listen to this and it turns out he is hilarious as well, and really interesting AND has an Oscar for a short film he made, AND generally seems to be a total legend. If you like him in either of those TV shows, you should check this out. Or check it out and then go and watch those TV shows post haste!

Steve Bicknell: The Hauschka Mix

Listen again to Tiga's latest 6 Music show. Perfect for a Sunday afternoon - if you like your Sunday afternoons completely BANGIN' that is.

Mayer Hawthorne 'Designer Drug' - free download

Free download of Mayer Hawthorne's track 'Designer Drug' - some sweet grooves wherein he lists all the designer drugs he's taken that don't have a patch on his lady friend. But he sings it in a pleasing soul manner so no one gets mad at him for being a total drug fiend:

Life lessons from Mr.T

I pity the fool who doesn't watch all these videos. Mr. T shows you how to 'recoup' if you fall in public - avoid embarrassment by turning that fall into the beginning of a sweet ass breakdance move:

This is from from Mr T's movie 'Be Somebody Or Be Somebody's Fool' which is over the top 80s with Mr. T tackling such issues as shyness, style ('table the label, wear your own name'), treating your mother right, doing exercise, breakdancing, rapping, making friends, reading and daydreaming - everything a kid needs for a happy balanced life.

In this clip, New Edition sing about not succumbing to peer pressure in an amazingly catchy synthy tune. And pleasingly, they are singing about peer pressure while dancing on a pier.

You can watch the whole thing on Youtube:

Of particular note is the fashion show, Mr T's dance lesson at 22'30" and a particularly inappropriate synthy tune about working out at 32'.

And on a separate note: this is an anti-drugs rap by Mr. T and Kool Keith. Kool Keith makes drugs sound kind of cool though by name checking all the famous people who took them, although I am sure that wasn't his intention:

Kenny Dope: Weekend Mix March 2013 Hip Hop, Breaks & Funk 45's, Picture & Flexi Discs

A quality hip hop and breaks mix, nice and chilled for a sweet Friday afternoon buzz. Or whenever. I listened to it first at 1 a.m. on a Thursday. I find it quite hard to find good hip hop mixes, particularly as sometimes they get carried away with the breaks and I get fed up! But I'm obviously looking in the wrong places. Any suggestions?

Robert James NGE podcast

Robert James is on the Hot Creations label. (Which is where musical tune crush 'Benediction' by Hot Natured and Ali Love comes from.) This is the first of his podcasts, and it's quality, lots of serious, slick beats. (It's not quite banging but it's not light hearted either!)

John Talabot on Red Bull Radio's Boiler Room Miami

Major musical crush John Talabot's set from Red Bull's Boiler Room takeover in Miami the other week: I watched some of this live online and man, that crowd was duff. When Jamie XX came on after he was like, 'What the fuck is wrong with you people? You're on a sunny roof top listening to deadly DJs in the sunshine, I want to see some people dance!' - I don't think anyone did though. Lame-ricans! Having said that, I can't really bear to watch any of the crowds in any of the Boiler Rooms! Much better to just listen on radio:

Vacationland mix #12: Neon Dreams

After just checking out the Vacationland series for the first time last week, lo and behold there is a new one out. Sweet! Has a little more R'n'B vibe this time to start, which is a great thing, then heads into some more dancey tracks, with soundbites from quality movies throughout. Pretty sure I heard Ted "Theodore" Logan (Keanu) from Bill & Ted being very philosophical, and some Bill Murray from In Lost In Translation among others. And it has some Cut Copy! Again, anyone who likes the Flight Facilities decades mixes should dig this. Quality artwork as well.

Also includes a sweet version of 'Shake Your Body Down'* I haven't heard before - If anyone knows who it's by please comment below!

There is also a free download of this gorgeous James Blake edit on his soundcloud:
