Wonderful life

Filed under: General — Tags: — Sevan @ 11:13 pm

I was really being ironic when I wrote ‘Wonderful Life’,” Colin Vearncombe, aka Black, told me in 2004 of his biggest hit. “Most people took it at face value, but why should they think otherwise? Only Donald Fagen and Randy Newman can sing sarcastically in a way that people understand. As a result, Smash Hits wrote about me because they thought it was a pop thing and Q wouldn’t touch me.

Sasha & Digweed – NYE 2002, Live from MTV

Filed under: General — Tags: — Sevan @ 12:18 am

This is without a doubt my favourite set from the two though I believe the beginning may be Sean Cusick & Jimmy Van M warming up, following by Sasha & Digweed on the warmup.
Either way, this set has always been with my since I downloaded it fresh from DJ Mixes 2k back in the day but I’d never seen the video that goes with it. Stumbled across it just now by accident šŸ™‚

This set is sometimes mislabelled as Sasha & Digweed – Live at Fabric which they played a couple of weeks earlier.

Origins of tracks

Filed under: General — Tags: , — Sevan @ 7:44 pm

Browsing my feed on soundcloud I saw a remix of Sade – Shelter me by David Morales. I have a anther bootleg remix of this track on vinyl which is less percussive & deeper that I like very much by Musk Men. The discogs info on the vinyl releases does not reveal any info on who was responsible for the remix. Earlier this year though a digital remaster of the track was made and proper accreditation is made to DJ Hani.

Another track I discovered the source to was the origin of the spoken word on PQM – You are sleeping, the comments section pointed to a blog post on the gospel according to John by John Harris.

The Cafe Mambo – 20 Years of Ibiza Chillout re
For the past few of years, Pete Gooding has posted his sets from Cafe Mambo in Ibiza, recently (this month?) there was a compilation released that’s also compiled by Pete Gooding called “The Cafe Mambo – 20 Years of Ibiza Chillout“. The compilation compliments those sets as an easy way to obtain unmixed copies of some of the tracks featured on those mixes across 3 CD’s.

SPAM regarding Brighton’s past

Filed under: General — Tags: , , — Sevan @ 2:26 pm

Just received a message from a company claiming to have visited the long defunct website of PierToPier.net. Interesting thing is that the “generic” email address I received the message on is on a domain that was never associated with the project, I’m guessing LinkedIn may somehow be involved as in the early days of LinkedIn, I did have a profile & PierToPier was listed in my bio. I wonder if this a case of someone using a scraped archive of LinkedIn?
The PierToPier.net site has been down for several years now, so it’s clearly from a source of outdated data. Still not sure how it was linked to the generic email address though.

Choose your own adventure 3: Return of the rainbows / Everyone leads & is led everyday

Filed under: General — Tags: , — Sevan @ 3:14 pm

Of the two links here, I attended Adam Job’s talk in person at Velocity conf 2012 but only found a public link to it recently, it was a fun talk to attend, it presented some (obvious?) points in a fun manner which weĀ sometimes forget about.Ā Brian Cantrill’s interview was once again at the right time for me, his interview & previous talk at scale coincided with events going on in my own life when they were published.
