In Todd We Trust

In Todd We Trust by Leftside Wobble

The good man and Big In Japan London resident mr.Jonathan Moore aka Leftside Wobble has put together this loving retrospective of Todd Terje Olsen productions before the party this friday. Big shame we couldn't have you on the bill JM!

The first few lucky ticket holders through the door for the Todd Terje / DSO party this friday will receive goodie bags filled with recent cosmic boogie and boogie originals releases (on vinyl), cd's (good ones) and a few other bits that we have kicking around.

Norman Jay MBE

Over the last few days I've been sifting through the extensive lists of essential mixes from the past nearly 20 years. Amongst others, this lovely 2 hour gem of a mix from Noman Jay (MBE no less) really piqued my interest. I've never heard Norman play a house set before, but he is well known for them.

After the UK (Acid) House explosion in the late 80s, a lot of the underground house heads moved to a smoother more garage sound to try and distance themselves from the masses. This gave Norman the perfect opportunity to play all the 80s NY garage records he'd been religiously buying on trips to NY and Paradise Garage and the sound in this DJ mix appears to be a natural evolution from that.
