tis the time of year for sitting outside with long pieces of music with a cold one or two with ya dearest and nearest...
the latest Nicolas Jaar mix is dominating my attention right now - once again he creates a soundscape of found, borrowed and pre-recorded sounds that pay homage/tribute to John Lennon... its fab
for those whom like the bouncy chunky house styles favoured by Mark Farina get waltzing....
and for the festive, the techno dads christmas mix: "This is just like your average family Christmas, if your average family somehow ended up down the Berghain."
it seems to have been a constant overt and underlying part of so many topics, opinions, news items and whatnot in my various feeds and discussions this year, over a number of issues that spanned the globe....
another constant was: inequality
Slightly convoluted solution, ticketing wise, but a good result for fans and organisers
Might be my eyes but they haven't stated what time the Lorde event is... which is kinda important consideration for them that work or live somewhere other than the inner city - I assume early evening?
Fad gadget anyone....
oh hells yes!!!!!!!!!
I agree with you both on that count - Lorde and her management have shown some serious good smarts and down to earth openness and honesty - I'd imagine Ella really wants to play to her friends here and Laneway is the perfect place to so, as a punter I really want to see her play there... and think the grammys are pretty meh at the best of times
It would be a really tough call for camp Lorde - Grammys is a big deal in their most important market (a shedload of free marketing), a performance or award would really cement her as this years Biggest Deal for those who've not already reached this forgone conclusion! Laneway on the other hand... is possibly a low paying (by their now standards) gig given they no doubt signed the deal prior to her blowing up - businesswise one would pick the Grammys without a second thought.... but one also doesn't want to let down the hometeam - massive dilemmas, for the management team and Ella herself
I've tried hard to stop listening to Lorde remixes and mashups... it became a little of an obsession... but this one is perhaps the best one I've heard/grabbed, Lorde and Donna Summer - so understated, so not doing anything... so freaking awesome:
Really feel for the BDO (NZ) team over Blur - can't say I care the bands not coming but the publicity sure ain't going to help
Tune of the week for me; George Michael's Outside as reedited by Sis - TUNE!
ah cheers - interesting about CBD.
Given she did her research in Oz one might assume that the joints would be mixed... or possibly smoked out of a bucket in the bath (they're crazy them aussies). Even so I'd imagine one wouldn't be functioning very coherently on 20-25 a day, though I guess with such heavy usage tolerance would negate some effects(?)
given the seminars were health related what findings on medicinal usage? or was it all negatively focused
