This Friday just gone I found myself at the Big Beat Reunion in London’s lovely but shady Jammm in Brixton, one of my old stomping grounds. I’m always slight wrong-footed by South London … even though I know it so well, it has an intensity about it that you seldom find North of the river with layer on layer of humanity battling for survival space. As an example, the cab ride back to the hotel afterwards was full of banter & was strangely worth the £22 I was knowingly being *fleeced* for a four mile ride.
To say the gig was an unusual one for me to take would be understatement. I’ve never before agreed to do an old skool / big beat set, and despite the huge time-drain of 3 full days of preparation, it was actually a great - re-education sifting through the piles of old vinyl. Each banger I unearthed was greeted like a long lost friend, even to the point of ‘knowing smiles’ accompanying the recall of each bit of vinyl’s unique quirks. Trying to mix these rough & ready slices of history together was a whole new ballgame & my plan to journey from 107 - 137 bpm seemed like a good idea in principal, but in practice it was a wild beast of a ride, and one that was hard to tame for much of the time.
Here is the set in all it’s rough glory. Thanks to the Noise crew for snagging a most unexpected recording.

You know it can’t get anymore exclusive when you get a podcast from one of the most adventurous and expansive producers on the planet: Luke Vibert. Ultimately one of the most prolific and elaborate auteurs of the electronic world, Vibert has created tracks that delve between the worlds of jazz, funk, disco, hip-hop and tweak-crazy acid house. Always appreciative of his influences and a sterling sample-picker, Luke Vibert and his many alter-egos have one thing in common: their love for the entire notion of what makes a tune whole. From the drum patterns, to the synth, tweaks and finally the layering of samples, Vibert is truly one of the more remarkable producers of our time. While listening to this fantasticly eclectic mix, pick up his new record under his Wagon Christ guise, called Toomorrow out now onNinja Tune.

I did this in 2007, but Fanu asked me to lock it down due to copyright issues at the time. I waited and waited, and now i think its time to let it be heard. it wasn’t released when i did it.
This was done as a tribute to the brilliance that is Fanu.
