Playlist 25.01.04 (1:55 pm)

In the post-Big Day Out aftermath (verdict: it was fun), I found myself unable to resist playing some of the tracks I heard DJed there. Thus the first two items, which were played in a row by David Holmes - fab to hear classic New Order on that Boiler Room sound system! And fab to hear Ulrich, at all, frankly!
Then we bookended the Aphex Twin and Luke Vibert set, which started with a recently-reissued Art Of Noise 12", gradually upped the tempo through disco, house, idm, drill'n'bass and dark drum'n'bass to insanely fast gabba/breakcore, and ended with a glorious track from the latest Venetian Snares album. {They actually played something after this too, some silly 1-minute track. And it's conceivable that the Art of Noise was the last David Holmes track, but I don't think so... It was a bit disappointing to see such famous producers coming all the way here just to DJ reasonably good sets, esp Aphex/Vibert, who just sat behind their laptops, presumably using linked up versions of Traktor...}
After Aphex/Vibert, Ange & I headed to the car and zoomed off to Bondi, to catch The Necks' second set at Live Bait - and a wonderful thing it was, starting soft and minimal, and eventually featuring Tony Buck playing breakbeats - yeah! Played about 20 minutes (start, beatmixed in with end segment) of the amazing jungle-influenced Necks album Hanging Gardens, and then... on with the show!
Later on, we had an interview with Tony Buck, and some great new tunes were featured from Japanese artist Utabi's new album, which combines computer-game idm/breakcore with some live instruments in a really Utility-Fog-friendly way.
New albums also from Mice Parade and Cex. What with an interview and some fairly long tracks, the playlist looks shortish this week. Still three hours of postfolkrocktronic goodness though!
