The xx – Mini Mix for Annie Mac BBC Radio 1

The Private Lives Vol 1 – Live Mix

This is what it sounds like when you squash two San Franciscans, one balkan-blooded German, two turntables and ridic amounts of booze together into a charming, tiny bar in the heart of Hong Kong, equipped with a dangerously booming sound system, on a packed Saturday night, and make them play whatever the fuck they want to play.

The amount of given fuck from our side about pleasing the crowd by playing hits was shockingly low, yet the level of positive feedback from the audience turned out quite grand! Much to y’all lucky bastards’ delight, we recorded all that shit. Here’s 30 randomly picked minutes from each one of our sets, squeezed into a 90 minute package for the sake of your earholes’ blissfulness. To be continued.

Timeout’s Best Of 2009 Celebration

As you might have overheard, the monthly club night I’m running with DJ Enso got awarded as “Hong Kong’s Best New Club Night 2009” by Timeout magazine recently. At the same time, the venue it’s being run at, VOLAR, has been awarded “Hong Kong’s Best Club 2009”. Nuff reasons to pop some bottles this Friday!

I’ve met Måns Glaeser, one half of Stockholmian producer/DJ duo Savage Skulls, at a show we both played in Brooklyn for Palms Out Sounds a while ago. Today, 2 years later, he’s hooking me up with some very blogworthy, highly banging club tunes of theirs. These guys are most likely to blow the fuck up this year. Remember where you heard it first.

Miike Snow – Black And Blue (Savage Skulls remix)

Style Of Eye – Grounded (Savage Skulls remix)

Be on the lookout for their upcoming releases on Mad Decent, Dubsided and Exploited, dropping in 2010.
