hi there. hope all is well with you.

last week we were honoured to contribute a mix the world reknowned beats in space radio show. the show hosted by dj tim sweeney has been running for a mind boggling nine years and in that time has featured guest dj sets from the cream of the dance world including jd twitch, lindstrom, erol alkan, james murphy, superpitcher, simian mobile disco and nicky siano to name a fraction (the whole nine years is archived over at the site). we think the mix we did for the show is probably our best yet (oh, and check out the opening track, written by yours truly, and forthcoming on cologne’s firm label).

this week our firms friend from the tigersushi bass system and mattia have concocted a mix fashioned in the image of the very label from which they sprung forth. we’ve been raving about joakim and his extended ts family for pretty much as long as this website has been running and will be happy to do so until the day we die.

if any london based readers have never experienced the joy of a tigersushi night then this can be rectified tomorrow night when the gang take over cargo for a free night. alongside sets from joakim, t.b.s, mattia and dj ayres, there are live performances by the wonderful principles of geometry and desmond and the tutus -winners of the inuagral allez-allez “best name ever” awards and the people responsible for the sunniest records of the last few years, ‘kiss you on the cheek’.

so no excuses, get down early and come enjoy the winter of love!

the turtles – i’m chief
can – …and more
lovefingers – zoysia
