… I shouldn’t have left you
Without a strong rhyme to step to
Think of how many weak shows you slept through
Time’s up, I’m sorry I kept you
Thinking of this, you keep repeating you miss
The rhymes from the microphone soloist
And you sit by the radio, hand on the dial, soon
As you hear it, pump up the volume
Dance wit the speaker ’till you hear it blow,
Then plug in the headphone ’cause here it go
Did I say I’d be back in May? Sorry about that, I must have meant June…
Actually, keen listeners will not that even though I’m blogging again, I’m not yet back on the airwaves. I’m actually taking a short break from the radio show. I’ve been doing the Fat Beat Diet non-stop for 9 years now and felt I needed a bit of time off and distance just to make sure that I still want to do the show and would be able to put in the effort which I feel listeners deserve. Short answer, I do and I am, but I’ll still take a few more weeks off doing the show.
In the meantime, 2 things: First of all, for those tuning in live for the radio show, I’m pleased to announce that Nathan, who hosts the show after me – The Twisted Brain Wrong, has stepped up to the plate and is hosting local DJs in my time slot. Every week, a different DJ will take to the 1’s and 2’s and present their take on what DJ culture is about. I’m super stoked about this, and hope that you’ll all tune in. I’ll try and coordinate with Nathan to get the schedule out to you ahead of time, and also throw up some of the featured mixes if possible.
Secondly, I’d hate to think that the 3 of you who regularly check the site are jonesing for mixes, so I’ll try to regularly post new mixes for your listening pleasure. These will likely take the form of snippets of live sets I’ve done, but if there’s some music I really want to get out there, the idea of me making an internet-specific mix is not out of the question.
The first mix is a snippet from my new Fridays at Vicious Circle, Uptown Sound. I’m really starting to like the night, and I’ll probably talk a bit more about it in the coming weeks, but for now I’ll just put the mix out there. It’s a pretty wide ranging mix, musically-speaking, or at least I think so. I’m having a lot of fun recently playing with tempo changes, and I’ve pretty much always liked switching genres, for better and for worse.
