Back from a flying visit to Ibiza, where my creaking old bones were
taken out to Pacha well past their bedtime (we didn't leave to GO
there until about 1am). My what a classy joint. We were on the
guest list (of course) but a bottle of beer and a gin and tonic
cost 27 euros (about £22 or $38).
However the whole experience was well worth every euro cent.
Utterly amazing. There's a bit of recording from the club later in
A Mile Above a Small Town - Christian
(Cedar Falls, Iowa, USA)
Born in isolation on the frozen arctic plains of Fairbanks, Alaska
in Dec. 1985, Christian Brown had difficulty adhering to the stern
social structure of a small Midwestern college town when his family
relocated to Cedar Falls, IA in 1992. Aside from a few very close
friends, Christian mostly kept to himself, wasting his days
developing creative pass-times, and marveling at Midwestern
technologies such as TV and Radio.
Back from Ibiza
- what a
great time, if a load too short a time. Great to see Jessie and to
meet some of her friends in the amazingly close community of "the
workers" who make sure that the whole club and music scene on the
island keep working.
Fantastically hot and bright after the grey "summer" we've suffered
here in the UK. I realise now that I could have done with a week
instead of a couple of days.
Clair de Lune - K-valeoun
From the Paris: 1989
Groupe touche-a-tout, groupe... mais tout seul ! Entierement fait a
l'ordi, je me revendique des influence electro, dance et techno
avec un petit faible pour la House des années 80-90.

Delirar - Bañeros
Ten musicians (although they look more like 30 in the photo on
Jamendo) took the stage to deliver a powerful combo of songs that
cover different rhythmic horizons, characterized by constant fusion
between a multitude of styles: ska, reggae, rock, rumba, cumbia,
tango and others. The identity of the banda is reflected in
climates and passages that generate not only the touch of the
various instruments, but also in the imposing and original staging
that frame the show at a unique moment.
The track Delirar is taken from their album Menos De Lo Mismo.

Song 7 - Trolley
From the album Very
The album description reads:
So, this would be the 3rd of the 3 Trolley albums. This is
the one where it all came together quite nicely, and is still one
I'm rather proud of. (Despite it's rather sketchy opener
"Affluenza" - Why do I never manage to do satisfactory opening
tracks? Too much enthusiasm to get going, perhaps).
My personal faves on "Very Plath" are "Holy Mother Hindlay" which
is built on a simple ominous loop which builds and builds
throughout the main body of the song, before switching tack and
coming to quite an anthemic close). "Song 7" which has a slightly
caribean feel to it but manages to take a trip through about
another 5 genres before it finishes, without sounding too forced or
pretentious, and "Sisters At The Wheel", an industrial dance affair
with a huge heart and sing song chorus.
"Very Plath" as a whole does what "Pedigree Joey" did in its finer
moments and manages to condense them into more manageable 4 minute
chunks - Without the schizophrenia, but with all the adventure left
intact. It took me a long time to do this one, but I enjoyed
Ibiza house music
what's it all about then? I went to see what I could find out with
the aid of Jessie Clitheroe and Sarah Malloy my two guides to the
delights of Pacha
and El Divino
. Ok so maybe it was
just because I saw Roger Sanchez
working but the
energy of the man is just amazing - a seven hour set!
Mashitup (Shir Khan Remix) - The Young
Also recently back from filming in Ibiza for a show on Flaunt
It's all gone Pete Tong
(from the Young Punx blog at www.yourmusiciskillingme.com
"Contrary to popular belief when the above phrase is used, it
hasn't actually gone horribly wrong and we haven't been invaded by
the coke badgers either. It's good news. No, it's great news…
Tracking us down through the power of good-taste (and great PR),
Pete Tong will be playing [played] the Shir Kahn remix of 'Mash It
Up' on his Fast Trax show this week (Friday 5th)."
