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.

Pick N Mix tracklist 17/9/10

So, the show went out again on Friday night, with loads of new music and an interview with Jah Wobble, down at the Red Bull Studios. Some real favourites in this show: the Jamie Woon track is properly lovely (and I’ll be playing the Ramadanman mix in the new few weeks), and I’m a little bit head over heels for the VHS Head track. It made me draw for those old vvm and Cassetteboy 7″s where they cut Lionel Ritchie up and made him do bad things, and once released, after the event, a particularly edge-of-wrong track called Di and Dodi Do Die. There’s a also another Too Cool For Old School track, which is a regular on the show, where we select an old classic. This time it’s Laid Back (not scary Slovenian band Laibach, who I used to believe made records that would play themselves if you left them alone too long… well scary) and their post-disco early ’80s classic White Horse. The shows will be going up on Mixcloud soon, honest.

NME Radio Show… back on air

My Pick N Mix show went out on Friday night, after a few months off air. Here’s what I played, with a few Youtube links hyperlinked in case you’re interested in how it sounds, because there’s nothing more annoying than getting a list of music you can’t listen to.

The shows should eventually be hosted for listen back on redbullstudios.com…. but not just yet. Next week’s show is 8-10pm, Friday night, on NME’s DAB station or on nme.com/radio. Plus there’s a new app.
