Happy New Year! Here’s to the Past, Present and the Future.
We did take a fair long break on null+void for Christmas. Happy New Year all it’s good to be back well rested and refreshed.
We are getting ready for a redesign of null+void so we can organise different sorts of news stories and also give more over to the guest banner artists plus the podcast keeps getting stronger with forthcoming submissions confirmed so far by Paul Blackford and Jakeone to look forward to this year.
Plus I’ve got some DJ dates for January and February to look forward to. Starting off on the 22nd of January at The Horse & Groom in Shoreditch for the launch of Inhouse, then by Plex on 5th Feb and closely followed with my SUPERDISCO residencey on the 12th. More details to follow of these parties.
Time for a catch up of releases that I’ve missed these past couple of weeks:
First is Bass Gun Records compilation All Guns Blazing released on december 28th, previously mentioned on this site on the subject of it’s remix competition which Ben Phaze ended up winning. Highlighs are the Dexorcist remix of Synapse’s Mech Annoyed and Radioactive Man Remix of Paul Blackford’s classic track Electro Shock.
I also missed this Electronica 2000-2009 mix done my the music editor at work Tim Noakes a massive 2 and a half hour retrospective of electronica from the last decade from his ear and he probably listens to more music than anyone else in the UK, there’s a good broad scope here.
The Centrifuge and Acroplane released a great joint compilation with tracks from Ebola and Oxynucid just before Christmas [download here] have lots of acid lushness ready to go from Roy of the Ravers and Rotodrone in the coming months. Still they kicked off the year with some twisty drill n bass from Terrificolor [download here].
Here’s a handy player the label put together so you can hear for yourself.
Other things I’m looking forward to in 2010:
Pain Struck Stanley Dumb’s new EP on Wide; Richard Wigglesworth’s Merri Portland album; BLOC Weekend; Glade; more Swerved parties; going back to All Your Base in Reading; maybe getting over to Berlin this year; SUPERDISCO; DJing and still being skint but having fun.
Let’s get on with it then.
