On December 19th I went into Toronto as a friend of mine was having a wee gathering at his place. 'His place' isn't your run-of-the-mill bedroom jock set-up though, as he runs the 'WestsideWax Dj School'. For 6 hours we all cycled through bouts of talking, drinking, breaking our host's wine glasses, listening to people play and some of us playing ourselves. Ian was smart enough to hit record on a laptop and pick up the evenings audio.

This week's Bleep is my time on the decks from that night as snipped from the much longer file.
Whole Night: Download (738MB)

That's how I put it anyway, here's Ian's commentary on the Techno community in which he's involved:

This week's Bleep was recorded live at WestsideWax Studio's annual holiday bash, an invite-only party held on Saturday, December 19. WestsideWax is a multi-faceted musical and artistic endeavour based in the heart of downtown Toronto. The studio is a unique entity, offering vinyl-only DJ lessons to youth and adults alike. And while most of the city's DJ schools focus on turntablism techniques associated with Hip-Hop, WestsideWax's curriculum is geared toward the Techno, House and Electro enthusiast, ensuring students develop an appreciation for the craft in its original medium and encouraging in-depth exploration of the vast history of all three genres. The studio also promotes occasional events ("whenever the mood strikes") under the Pivot moniker, making use of unique and underused venues and eschewing gimmicky trends for the basics of high quality soundsystems and local talent who follow the credo of substance over style. Past guests include Andreas Marouchos, Dylan T (a.k.a. Jack Tripper), Destro Sanchez, Glenn Antram, E.K.G., Core Matrix and of course Bleep's own Trevor "Isoprax" Wilkes, who has thrown down memorable sets at the past two Pivot events.

Mudd Up! Says Bleep

Vote 2 Votes

I woke up this morning to a piece of good news. Geoff Manaugh has informed me that he was a guest on a NY based radio show last week and that while discussing music he enjoys with the host Dj/Rupture he mentioned a few people familiar to FitM and Bleep Radio!

Ok, it's not huge news, but it's always appreciated when someone mentions this music we like.

Bodycode What Did You Say

Show Information | Archive stream

Sequestered away on the 3rd floor, surrounded by records and absolutely no snow are the conditions during which this recording was...recorded. No complaints from this warm bodied individual are going to be heard; I like records and hate snow.

I seem to have narrowed down a bag full of stuff that I may stick with for a few weeks. So you'll notice that a lot of the tracks will be familiar, as they were played last week. I prefer to play that way. From a restricted bag of records that is. It eventually leads to sets that have more energy to them. I feel that way at least. When I'm playing a bunch of records that I just grabbed off of the shelves too much thought goes into remembering what the record is and not enough into how it can be used. I think you'll notice a big difference between last week's set and this week's in terms of how the records are used.

Next week's show is even better (in my opinion anyway). On December 19th I went to a friend's House-party in Toronto and a bunch of us played loud for the rest who came to listen, talk and drink. I lasted until 4am which is clearly 5 hours past my old man bed-time, but the recording is worth it. It's a nice jammer.

Enjoy the tracklist below. I'm off on 2 weeks of holiday time so I had a bit more time to put it together than usual.

I wasn't really enjoying myself while recording this week's Bleep on Monday evening. I hate when I have to start recording a new batch of mixes for Bleep. Playing a few records after work isn't the same as having to record at least an hour for the show. Listening to the mix in the car on the way to work today shows me the mix isn't as awful as I felt it was when playing it. The whole playing for the fun of it thing definitely needs to be done a few more times this week to make up for the forced mixing. That's for sure.

It's getting to be that special time of year. When people are nice because they're supposed to be and where things really start to slow down music wise. Don't let that fool you into thinking this is a filler post. I would have mentioned it regardless.

Aside from the new glamour, he's also put up some sample packs, sets and tracks. Go forth and pillage.

Luke's Anger

This set has actually been kicking around for over a month now. It was originally going to be used straight away, but then a spate of guest mixes came through. It's a bit off of the recent theme which has been fairly hard the last two weeks, but then again I've also never tried to structure Bleep thematically so it doesn't really matter a whit does it!

About 2 weeks ago is when I found Pyschomantix. Or rather, more properly, when he introduced himself. When I invited him into the folds to participate in Bleep Radio I didn't expect a mix sent in so soon. I've gotten much too used to the 6+ month waits that are the norm. Enjoy his Bleeps, Bass and Nipple Tweaks.

Overall I'm very happy with the numbers, but I am going to make some changes. I'm noticing more and more that a lot of these mp3 radio/streaming sites are leeching sets (15% or so of my bandwidth right now). I'm going to be making some changes to the web server to slow that behaviour down or stop it unless I'm asked directly. If anyone else experiences problems downloading please let me know. I don't want those of you simply downloading to suffer for those who clearly aren't in the same boat.
