Setlist, 22 October 2011

This week we had our annual Sourcecamp developers’ and users’ summit, as well as Mediafabric, a one-day conference focusing on the future of journalism. We had people from literally all over the planet, and that global reach had an influence on this week’s setlist, which pulled from a lot of places and styles. This week’sContinue reading “Setlist, 22 October 2011”

Setlist, 24 September 2011

Like a lot of people worldwide, I spent this morning tracking the fall of NASA’s UARS satellite, and started off my set with a classic track from XTC, “Another Satellite.” I had a lot of new music this week, including Gui Boratto’s III, and the track “The Third.” I also liked Frank Ocean’s new track,Continue reading “Setlist, 24 September 2011”

Setlist, 28 August 2011

This week I managed to get a lot of new great music, much of it available on Soundcloud, including this new track by Holy Ghost! featuring Michael McDonald (yeah, he of the Doobie Brothers): Poolside’s really nice cover of Neil Young’s “Harvest Moon:” Little Dragon’s title track from their new album, “Ritual Union:” Here’s LittleContinue reading “Setlist, 28 August 2011”

I can’t recommend highly enough the Sofrito: Tropical Discotheque compilation, which I also played a lot of thisContinue reading “Setlist, 16 April 2011”

One of the bands to watch for 2011 is Brandt Brauer Frick, who will be playing at the Sperm Festival. Here’s their newest clip, Caffeine: BecauseContinue reading “Setlist, 19 March 2011”

Setlist, 5 March 2011 – Carnival and Coffee

This week’s show had two main themes, the start of Carnival in Rio and songs about coffee (and one about tea). There were some new tracks in there, including the brand-new Aeroplane remix of the Human League’s “Never Let Me Go:” and this new Brazilian singer, Tulipa Ruiz, and her song, “Do Amor:” but thereContinue reading “Setlist, 5 March 2011 – Carnival and Coffee”
