I'm feeling a little bit weird and tiered as it's the summer. Booze flows all year round, but summer is the time when it really gets going. I for one am not about to challenge summers right to trouble/control my liver/brain, and as a Kangaroo living on the often depressingly grey and chilly island of Grand Engladia I think I have an excuse... Well that's all bullshit, and for some reason I've taken up smoking again, which I also blame on the sun. Hmmm, intro.
Anyway, what about this?! Akira Kiteshi is something that wobbled onto my aural horizon just a few days ago. Innovative, precise and exciting, this music embodies the kind of thing I'm increasingly being drawn towards as far as Dubstep is concerned. I can still listen to all out, blatantly evil and berserk Dubstep, but really it's starting to drag a little because it's too easy to do. I had a look at some comments made on one of Akira Kiteshi's songs on Youtube (an obvious mistake) and noticed someone had commented that it sounded too much like AK was actually trying.... WHAT THE FUCK!?!?!? It's electronic music, you need to try. The boundaries need pushing, and the process of evolution to whatever next form we have is necessary and is what makes music continue to be an important part of life.
Whatever. Just, if you love innovative, well produced audio experiments/experiences, then this wank is for you.

Hi Bums (U.S. meaning),
Tuesday, 6 April 2010
Well then, I've decided that 2010 shall be the beginning of my live music career. I am attempting to suck people in with this little mix, it being a sort of shit version of the kind of thing I want to do live. Still, it should serve to outline what I have planned.
If you want me to play live near you, drop me a prick and I'll give you a wank. Sexy.

Skitz ft Buggsy - Born Inna System by Skitz
Monday, 15 March 2010
How's you? I'm OK thanks. Cool.
So I heard this song last night; 'It Ain't Got A Name' by TC & Joker... I LOVE IT! I haven't repeatedly listened to a song like this in months! In fact... It's back on.
Apart from the fact that these boys are from West Countryshire - my spiritual and often physical homeland - and that the song kicks a massive blue arse, I like this song because I once saw an interview with Joker where he had a toy cat sitting on his shoulder. I respect that in a person, and it's the kind of thing I think about when I listen to their music.
My favourite thing about this song is the squealing synth (Dweeeden der der... derrr!). Also the strings have a sort of melancholy that sends a weird shiver up my spine, which I also feel when Annie Mac announces at the end (for this is a radio rip); '...Representing the West Country...'. I didn't know I had such patriotic feelings. Maybe it's only where music is concerned, as I still feel a pang of excitement when I think about how well Dubstep has traveled, but I don't care all that much about how many people around the world like George Orwell or Aldous Huxley even though they probably have more cultural importance that wobbling bass and Cockney Thugs... Still, wobbling bass is very good. I can't feel Orwell vibrating my innards. Not now he's dead.
