Bought Cobblestone Jazz - Dump Truck on Wagon Repair last night - go and buy this record! IT. IS. AMAZING.

There's a glorious remix of Blackdown by Burial thats worth hunting out this week too.

Plus there are copies of Morgan Geists remix of Junior Boys - The Equalizer floating around on shiny black plastic which are definitely worth six of your english pounds.

Get to it people.

Here's a couple of little treats for you. Both are alternative versions of the originals...

Maxence Cyin plays Aphex Twins Windowlicker on the ol' joanna:

And Who Made Who strip it back and play Rose all acoustically...

Just moved into a new flat so once my records and turntables are unpacked there'll be some glorious rare tracks going up the meantime check the above and The Vol.4 mix. Oh and hunt out Joakims new track DRUMTRAX from his new ep - its proper acid house business, not this neu-rave klaxons / digitalism pish thats being pushed at the moment.

Something for the weekend....

It's the weekend, and here's something to help you through it - the Major Swellings (aka Prins Thomas) remix of Stephen Malkmus 'Kindling for the master' as I know some of you REALLY want to hear this. Its pretty dam good, I just hope Domino / Stephen / Prins doesn't hunt me down for posting this......

Thisisnotanexit Vol. 4 should be up on the official site tomorrow morning all being well *glances at website gremlins* and I hope you enjoy it, all feedback always appreciated as it means people out there are actually reading / listening / enjoying.....adios amigos.

Woe is me....

No posts for a while as my girlfriend broke up with me. Woe is me.

I have though put together the next Thisisnotanexit installment and Volume 4 should be up on the official site in the next few days for you to download and cast your ears upon. In the meantime here's the tracklist - basically for you to decide if you fancy trekking all the way to another site to download it. Its not as long as the last mix I did, does contain the new DFA remix of Hot Chip, plus is laced with an undercurrent of melancholia which I quite like....

Thisisnotanexit Vol. 4

1. Telstar Ponies - Bells for Albert Ayler / Voices for the new music
2. Burial - Night Bus
3. Aphex Twin - On
4. Juan Maclean - La Chine
5. Hot Chip - Colours (DFA remix)
6. Goat Dance - Sizzle
7. Kerrier District - Robots (Disco Nasty remix)
8. Capracara - Two headed monster
9. Akabu - Phuture Bound (Ame remix)
10. The Rapture - Get myself into it
11. Carol & Snowy Red - Breakdown
12. Ginny - Can't be serious
13. Burial - Forgive
14. Langley Schools Project - God only knows
15. Amina - Fjarikstan
16. Mogwai - Friend of the night (Acid casuals remix)

As I said it should be available on the official site real soon.....

In other news and continuing my recent Knife obsession my mate Pete supplied with me this little beauty - the Ratatat remix of the new Knife single 'We share our mothers health'....check it! Very different to the Radioslave remix I put up a few weeks ago.

I've also set myself up for a fall by somehow agreeing to Dj at a friends party, and alongside my mates Wedont and Karlos, play 60 songs in 60 minutes. I'm currently busy on Ableton editing the hell out of stuff, but I will definitely be playing this (non-edited) beauty that Twitch mentioned to me and comes in at a blink and you'll miss it 46 seconds, lets rawk!

Minor Threat - Straight Edge
