The Pick N Mix Radio Show On Mixcloud… And Where Are LDN’s Pirates?

I’ve been upping my radio shows to Mixcloud over the last few weeks (aside: am I really the only person who describes the act of uploading as ‘upping’?) and it’s been very cool and nice to see people actually listen to them because who actually listens to radio as it goes out these days? Well, I do, but only when I’m in my car, when I love to flick through the airwaves and find what’s going on. Which reminds me, I’m on a mission to find out where all the pirates have been hiding for the last few weeks. I know Rinse have gone legal but where is Whoa FM and Selector and all those other South London pirates that made my journey round and about SE13 more enjoyable? Answers on a postcard, please.

PICK N MIX SHOWS on Mixcloud

I uploaded the shows from the start of the month today, and I’ll upload the rest over this week til they’re all on my mixcloud page mixcloud.com/emmawarren. I need to sort out the tracklisting for each hour as I haven’t yet separated them out into the correct hour sections but I’m sure you’ll work it out in the meantime. This show was the first one since the NME radio hiatus and it was good to be back on air. The show had interviews with Diplo and Funkineven (the latter talking about his favourite acid track) and a really good carnival set from Joker who somehow has transformed from the quite serious heads-type DJ I used to see at FWD>> to a proper party DJ. Oh, and we started as we mean to go on, with the uncompromising, ear-twisting sounds of DJ Nate, straight from the hardcore heart of Chicago. All together now: “hatas our motivation, hatas our motivationa, hatas our motivation”. Or ‘hats are our motivation’ as Mike ‘Planet Mu’ Paradinas put it, when I interviewed him this week for the ongoing footwork/juke feature I’m seemingly endlessly engaged in.
