RAF Daddy Mix for Fabric/Roska

As one half of 2 Bears with Hot Chip’s Joe Goddard, RAF Daddy has caught the attention of many in recent times but those in the know will point to his standing as a DJ on the London house/garage scenes of the past few years, not to mention his input on Toddla T’s career. He was part of the line-up for last Friday’s Fabric event curated by hybrid badman Roska, and ahead of the show they got him to fire through this mix, which isn’t particularly long but is good and does kick off with Whitney Houston’s ‘Love Will Save the Day’. Short interview at the original link as well.

DISCOTECA POCA… Presents an evening with DUSKY

“Dusky have tapped into something, a universal – an essence that excites DJs and clubbers across the dance divide. Lee Foss included their track ‘Tyto Alba’ on his recent RA podcast; Jamie Jones dropped it at DC10 closing in Ibiza; Paul Woolford and Sasha are rinsing their tracks; bass bods T.Williams, Loefah and Boddika are pushing ‘em; and let’s not forget plays from the Radio 1 bigwigs, like Pete Tong, Toddla T, Rob Da Bank, hell, even Zane Lowe.” – DJ Magazine

Due to Djing near enough every weekend horribly unsociable hours, I don’t go out much in Liverpool. One gaffe I make an exception for is Discoteca Poca. I’ve reviewed their greatness before and there’s always fun to be had when they turn the hold in the Shipping Forecast into a great little rave den. Following on hot on the heels of Dyed Soundorom’s cracker last month, they’ve got Dusky on board this time, the duo that have ditched prog to great effect with some groove heavy assaults. I’ll ‘sadly’ be running wild on Las Ramblas for the Off Sonar festivities, but if you are in Liverpool you know what to do.

Full details can be found here. Peep Dusky’s killer mix for Clash as well.
