A shorter live set this week from me due to a guest studio mix from Tim and Jim, the technical and musical force behind Ableton Live mash-up group, Vinyl [Abort]. These guys last appeared on the show about 2 years ago and really impressed, so it was a great pleasure to air their talents once again. As expected they didn't dissapoint and have clearly improved through their experience in the studio and playing out live. Mixes such as these represent what they sound like when performing at a show, using a plethora of MIDI controllers, laptops, MC's and visuals. Quite a setup but it importantly results in a unique live dynamism that really is something to behold. Promoters, do yourself a favour and book 'em before they get too expensive! There's an interesting interview from Nottingham's Left Lion on them and you can get a clean copy of their studio mix that I broadcast on Bassdrive directly from Left Lion, here. I'm still having problems with multiple enclosures on my feed so iTunes listeners can use this URL for the clean VA guest mix: http://www.leftlion.co.uk/audio/vinyl-abort-on-the-fly.mp3 My part of the show's tracklisting:- Kabuki ft.
