Tonight's playlist coming to you courtesy of my laptop... Nice to be ensconced in the studio with this familiar extension of myself! Starting with a new track by legendary ambient techno pioneers The Orb ("Tower twenty three" - a new "Towers of dub"! Awesome), we wandered through a number of fab new releases (Enduser's From Zero, Fennesz' Venice etc), new discoveries and re-discoveries, with another entry into Otto von Schirach's new political breakcore kinda project and new folktronic type stuff from Mole Harness.

last-minute self-promotion (8:02 pm)

Well this little DJ isn't very good at promoting himself, but anyway, as part of FBi's collaboration with the Art Gallery of NSW's art.afterhours program, I shall be DJing down at the Art Gallery's Artbar tomorrow night (that's Wednesday the 17th of March) from 7-8:30pm... The website says: "Enjoy a drink and the Man-Ray-inspired evening menu from 5pm." You have to go simply to find out what the fuck a Man-Ray-inspired evening menu is!

You heard it here. Too late to come, maybe, but what the heck. Drop in, ok?

[I've left this here because it's fun to see what I had when I was putting the playlist up...]
Welcome to the live Utility Fog playlist for another week. I think I'm all settled, so we'll start with a whole lot of lovely old idm stuff and then see where we go from there, hey? New Squarepusher this week, lots of old stuff and some newer breakcore, we've got it all.
