Great interview with Theo Parrish for Slices magazine, where he expands upon his thoughts on digital dj’ing, knowing your history and mastering your artistry.
Hot on the heels of the excellent ‘Picture This’ EP (available for free download via Scion), Kenny Dixon gives us a peek of his latest release, ‘I Guess U Never Been Lonely’, which sees him putting his flair on the Junior Boys’ track ‘You’ll Improve Me’. Limited Japan only release and yes, pricey.

The latest episode of VBS.tv’s Electric Independence features an excellent interview with Chris Carter and Cosey Fanni Tutti, aka Chris & Cosey, CTI and one half of seminal industrial/electronic pioneers Throbbing Gristle. Great to see this couple still fascinated by gear and being open to new technologies that simply work for them.

Oakland’s Deepblak Recordings crew (Aybee, Afrikan Sciences, Damon Bell, EPS1 and Percepticon) recently came by The Friday Night Session for an interview, where they talked about music past, present and future, touching down on the difference between beats made in Oakland vs. San Francisco or Detroit, and how having the expensive pieces from your studio stolen makes you a better artist. You can check out the full audio interview here. Shout out to my co-hosts Mike Bee and Andrew Jervis who held it down despite the technical difficulties.

England’s pirate radio stations have been vital in breaking underground music and bringing it to a wider audience since the 1960’s. In this video we get a behind-the-scenes look at London’s pirate stations (Rinse FM & Flex) as well as a history lesson about the original pirate station, Radio 630, located 3 miles off-shore in abandoned world war 2 sea forts.

More vintage footage from The Tube - this time Leslie Ash and Jools Holland check out New York’s nightlife. It’s quite apparent how different NY is these days compared to the 1980’s. A small slice of NY culture including interviews with Arthur Baker, The Peech Boys and footage from The Roxy and The Paradise Garage. Oh, and why would you let Leslie Ash anywhere near your records?

Detroit’s The Scene was a TV dance show that ran daily from 1975 to 1987. With Mojo and The Wizard on the radio and The Scene on TV - no wonder Detroit spawned so much great music in that time period. Check the hair, fashion, mic and air guitar.
Meanwhile on the other side of the pond, England’s The Tube was less about the dancers and more about contemporary rock and pop, being instrumental in launching the careers of many artists. In this clip Greg Wilson is the first UK dj to mix live on national TV. Check the hair, fashion, mic and headphones!
