The talk around town this weekend has been the mention of the Prins Thomas Discomiks of Hatchbacks White Diamond which was in Fridays Film & Music Section of The Guardian! Unbelievably it was featured in the weekly F&M playlist by Alexis Petridis - and for those that don't know he is a bit of a harsh critic and known for basically not liking, well, not alot really. Anyways here's what it said:
"Just when you despaired of ever hearing a 17 minute long Norwegian blissed out cosmic disco epic, remixer Prins Thomas takes on the debut single by Californian producer Hatchback with deliriously exciting results."
So there you go Thisisnotanexit Records releases are now being talked about in the national press. Never thought it'd happen with a 17 minute remix but there you go...!
Hatchbacks mate The Sorcerer also gives a mention to the White Diamond release in this weeks One Week To Live magazine so slowly but surely the White Diamond message is spreading.
I went record shopping and picked up the new record by OSBOURNE on Spectral - definitely worth checking out (plus there's a Luke Vibert remix on there too). I also grabbed the Al Usher release on Ewan Pearsons new label, the Padded Cell remix of Future Loop Foundation, the two new Clone releases - one featuring a Prins Thomas remix and the other being the new Bangkok Impact track Missionary On Mars - both absolutely killer tracks.
Weekend listening has been around sorting my record box for this Thursdays DJ Set at the Lock Tavern - but on the stereo has been some old DFA (Black Dice - Endless Happiness (EYE Remix) @ 33rpm!!!!!) plus the new Bo'tox track which has been licensed to DFA - BABYLON BY CAR (seriously good it is), Rubies - The Keys (Studio Remix), The Mute Audio Documents Box Set, Scotty Coats - Doublefisted (forthcoming on Rong), Stateless - Prism (Prince Language Dub Remix), the new King Kong Foo releases (which I'm gonna write about in more detail in the next few days as the next 2 releases are really REALLY good), Robag Wruhmes - My Gloomy Head (jazzy minimal balearic??!!!), the Monolake remix of Surgeon, and finally David Morales remix of Shabba Ranks - Mr. Loverman! SHABBA!
