Mix – Massive Carl’s M5 Mixtape / Bloc Mixxx


My latest mix is for the Bloc Weekend festival which is taking place this weekend over in Butlins in Minehead in the UK. Apartment and Lunar Disko will be taking over the Pub Venue on the Saturday of the festival from 7pm to Midnight featuring myself, Tr One, Automatic Tasty and John Heckle.

At this stage the festival has had a fairly storied history from it’s beginnings in a run down Holiday camp outside Norwich to larger events in Minehead and a controversial attempt to stage the festival in London in 2012, with it now returning for it’s final Weekender back in Minehead. The festival circuit has changed quite a bit since it started nearly 10 years ago but while many of the big names on this year’s line up appear at many other festivals now, there is a unique character to Bloc that made it a vital weekend for many. It’s been quite a few years since I’ve attended and while I ain’t gonna start shedding any tears, it’s pretty exciting to be returning for one more round, and to be getting to play some records…

Delivering sixteen cuts of stripped back, often funky tracks, Anatolé, a cassette and digital release by Paris Treantafeles is a great release for the end of summer and the coming fall. Treantafeles, a Queens, NY musician, manages to use a restricted production method to deliver what’s been one of my favorite releases of the recent past….

Ten Years Lost

The more things change, the more things stay the same. I could just as well leave this post at that. Ten years ago Tom started this site with the basic idea of highlighting music that is overlooked by other outlets. The same frustrations that brought about the blog still stand. It may seem like we…
