Heads up to check the DJ Nature mix on DJ Broadcast. I have only just got wise to this one so you may have seen it but other mixes come from Ray Mang and The Revenge to name a few.

Over at Saturn Never Sleeps there’s a King Britt podcast in tribute to the great David Mancuso. I’m going to lift Britt’s intro wholesale as it says it all…
“Last week I had the pleasure of spinning with the Robotique crew in Philadelphia. We did a special night dedicated to Dave Mancuso‘s Loft parties in NYC. This really meant a lot to me because I was a “Lofter” in the late 80s. We use to trek up to NYC to lose ourselves in the music and an atmosphere which eventually became historic nights. This was the blueprint of my dj career.
While preparing for the special dedication, I pulled out some beautiful vinyl pieces from my library. I wanted to play things that were featured there, things I would have selected if I had played the Loft – and also sounds that may really work there today.
In this podcast you will find rare gems like Eberhard Schoener w/ The Police (before they blew up), Get the Balance Right (dub mix) by Depeche Mode and new tidbits like Maurice Fulton‘s mix of Woofy.
Enjoy these tunes as much as I have over the years!”
Here’s the link again if you missed it.

What has Steve Beckett talking about Aphex’s lucid dreaming got in common with a tune from Darkstar called ‘Aidy’s Girl Is A Computer’? Apart from sharing an interest in the sideways approach to life, they’re both on the new episode of my Wandering Feet podcast. There’s also an interview snippet with Egyptian Lover about old-school electro parties and new tunes from Parallel Dance Ensemble (aka Robin from Owusu and Hannibal and friends), hotly-tipped UK MC Bubbz, Hotflush Records top boy Untold and dreamy low-end dude Lukid. And a D-Bridge remix of UK funky girl, Meleka. Subscribe on iTunes if you’re enjoying.

Emma Warren, one of the Test Pressing contributors has been producing various radio shows/podcasts for the Red Bull group, so we thought we’d post one here and ask a little about what the shows are about. Over to Emma…
I’ve been doing a monthly podcast for the Red Bull Music Academy since January this year. Each month I make my way up to Clerkenwell Green, clutching a handful of my favourite tunes of the day, ready to step inside the vocal booth and get recording. I’m working with the team who create content for the RBMAradio.com site which means that we get access to amazing people. So far I’ve had interviews with Baaba Maal, William Orbit and a customised jingle from Tippa Irie as well as full access to the catalogue of couch interviews that happen each year at the academy. But anyway, this is the current Wandering Feet podcast. It’s got music from Goldielocks (above) and Mark Pritchard, Sa Ra’s Om’Mas Keith and Debruit plus new school Portuguese techno boys Photonz as well as interviews with Subeena, Dirty Projectors and Baaba Maal. The one before had Musinah and a fab new tunes from kizomba hip hop duo Ritchaz e Keke and the next one, which I recorded this week, will have new music from Little Dragon and a TRG mix of Moderat as well as a super-sweet interview with dubstep’s Mala. Til that goes up next month, here’s Wandering Feet.
