Badly Packed Kebab featuring: Darkhouse Family

We've got a very special edition of the Badly Packed Kebab coming this Friday, 3rd December on Purple Radio. Dropping into the studio with a bunch of dirty beats, some banter and hopefully a few beers ('cause i'm running low) will be South Wales' production duo du jour, Darkhouse Family.

Made up of Cardiff's Don Leisure and Barry's hip-hop mainman, Metabeats, Darkhouse Family have thrown themselves to the fore of glitchy wonk-hop production styling. First catching ears with BPK-favourite, "Stay Blazed" (their contribution to Fat City's Producer #2 compilation) the duo have also received rave reviews for their debut EP, "Family Trees". They have received DJ support from Gaslamp Killer, Kutmah, Martyn, Radio 1, Ras G, Illum Sphere, Stagga, Starkey & Slugabed (to name but a few) and are currently setting out on projects with Low End Theory badman Jon Wayne and EPROM, as well as remix work for Frite Nite.

FAMILY TREES [SNIPPETS] FC12034 by darkhousefam

Fat City describe their sound as "shiny yet gritty with dusty records and imagination in a 21st century style. Heavy synth-work, syrupy melodies, processed sample snippets with tough kicks and hard snares in a freeform collision make their debut EP a heavyweight production"; which sums them up perfectly, and is far better than I can manage on a cold Tuesday morning.

Darkhouse Family are the perfect fit for a guest slot on the BPK, so we're chuffed they wanted to come along...and they're certain to bring some fine beats (and hopefully a few exclusives) to the Purple Radio decks. Be sure to tune in this Friday night, midnight until 2am (GMT) for what promises to be a memorable show!

hi all. so, it's been a while (again) - my apologies. summer's been nuts, what with Glastonbury, playing at the Big Chill festival and at my favourite festival of the season, Festinho. as a result, radio shows took a bit of a backseat, and in some cases i just didn't upload anything (probably a blessing, considering the states i get into when i'm broadcasting).

anyhow, i promise i'm going to shower you with musical gifts more regularly, so here's a recording of the show i did just over a week ago.

it's partially a look back over the sounds heard at the aforementioned Festinho, as well as the usual filthy/daft late-night wobble.

all of these records are available to purchase separately from all good music retailers, and any download site worth its salt.



when Mat Hoods came to visit...

Mat's a lovely bloke from Manchester who, as well as being a top DJ, record collector, music brain and all-round nice man, co-runs the quite brilliant Plimsoll Records and presents regular shows on Purple Radio and StraightUp.

He paid us a visit in Cardiff recently and in between drinking and shouting at each other about records, we managed to knock out a few hours of radio too. I'm not going to pretend that any of it is pretty, but there are some diamonds amongst that rough...

The first was the usual Friday post-pub selection on the Badly Packed Kebab...

Future Funk Mixtape

2010 has arrived and while i'm yet to be given the chance to buy a hoverboard, my old pal FUNK has certainly been providing some excitement of late.

as a genre it seems to be evolving now to include (or maybe just influence) a swathe of electronic, glitch hop, broken beat, chuggy, synthy, wonky productions - from all over the globe. so much development seems to have happened so quickly that it's difficult to predict where it's going to go next...so this isn't so much "future" as "now", really. um...sorry.

still, it's just under an hour of my current fave alt-funk tunes. i hope you enjoy it!


Linkwood - Tears
The Sa-Ra Creative Partners - Souls Brother
Pure P - Fonky President
Architeq - Sleeping Bear Lament (James Pants Remix)
Debruit - 149 Dalston Airline
Fulgeance - Tribute To Masekela (FULGEANCE BICOQUET EDIT)
Modeselektor - 2000007 (Siriusmo Remix)
Dam Funk - Hood Pass Intact
Tom Central - Hillbrook Boogie
Souleance - Manana
Mr Scruff - Giant Pickle
Julien Dyne - Incredulous
Blackmonk - Monkmuse In Da House
Arcadion - Fly Vision
Proof Of Concept - It Was A Train (Jazzsteppa Remix)
Dorian Concept - Tropical Hands
Onra - My Comet

Download 320kbps version here: http://www.sendspace.com/file/l22lxl

as always, if you like what you hear on this mix, go and buy more of the featuring artists' music (it'll be worth it - for each of them this stuff only touches the surface, trust me) and support quality independent labels. good music needs you.

UPDATE: i've just uploaded the mix to Soundcloud, too - for those of you who do that kind of thing...

Drilla's Free-Edits

i should probably spend a bit more time perusing the DJ History pages, because it's always chock-full of gems each time i do make a visit.

Drilla's work is a case in point. a couple of months ago i popped over to check out what was floating boats in chuggydiscobalearicland, and noticed he'd started a thread giving away an edit of his - a reworking of a Lack of Afro remix of a Diplomats of Solid Sound track. still with me? good...

it's a belter because it takes an otherwise quite tricky DJ's track and extends the intro out to something a bit more manageable than the original. it also rates highly because the original is so damn good! LOA's drums never fail to raise a smile here.

Diplomats of Solid Sound - If You're Wrong (Lack of Afro Remix) (Drilla's Edit)

not only that, but Drilla also puts up a re-edit of Breakestra's "Little Miss Funky Sole" for us to enjoy too. i think i prefer this to the Diplomats/LOA edit, it's immense...and every time i've dropped it at a party since, it's gone down a storm. the stretched-out intro break and drop into the horns are summink else; if you're spinning funk, you can't really go wrong with this.

Breakestra - Little Miss Funky Sole (Drilla's Edit)

finally, on a more downbeat tip, Drilla has recently dropped a Cymande edit - this time taking "Zion I" and dubbing it up, whilst maintaining the original melodic lifts. this is going to sound great in the summer, but until then, use it to warm yer frosty cockles.

Cymande - Zion I (Drilla's Edit)

GOOD FREE MUSIC - you can't really argue with that, can you? if you dig these be sure to pop over to DJ History and thank Drilla yourselves! oh, and check out the work he does with Drrtyhaze too - fine stuff.

Avé Blaste - New Perspectives 001 Mix

it's always nice being given a nudge towards a fresh little mixtape, and i think you can afford to give this one (at only 28mins long) a bit of space on your mp3 player of choice.

put out just today by the Keep Up! crew in advance of the second of their "New Perspectives" nights, this mix takes you on a nice little saunter through the warm, funk-tinged, wonky side of current electronica. Avé Blaste has done a fine job here, and happily wins a place in my heart for including the excellent (and old fave on the Badly Packed Kebab) Siriusmo - "Wow". always a winner.

get this on and help the winter thaw edge in. oh, and the details for New Perspectives event on Saturday night can be found below, too - if you're in the area, head along!

Avé Blaste - New Perspectives 001 Mix
Grooveman Spot - Beat Intro

Badly Packed Kebab 30/01/10

i'm going to start posting my radio show recordings here again, seeing as i haven't for a while due to a combination of laziness and ridiculous grief (despite my reasonable explanation to the right, there...) from a certain authority. let's try this again, shall we...?

it was nice to be back on the radio after a weekend off (due to PC troubles). proper keen to get back into the saddle though, and what i lack in curbing my enthusiasm i make up for in…ummm…being horrendously drunk. so drunk i’d left my cartridges from my earlier gig in town (and they weren’t there when i got back the next day to salvage them – d’oh!). anyway, i hope you enjoy the selection…but perhaps not so much the banter, this time. ;)
