Brilliant, lovely stuff from one of our current fave British musos, a regular on Kid606's Tigerbass label and the helmsman of IF? preferred label Bonus Round - as well as the guy who slew 'em at the last BLOC party and who's really showing how to redefine electronica at the mo'.

2. Critical Error (4:41)
3. Sound Clash (5:22)

This is now up on the illustrious Fun in the Murky site:
"It's been a wee while since Andrez last contributed to Bleep. I guess he got tired of writing all of those articles for FitM that he's been doing lately. I mean, just because the fellow can string a few words together he thinks it means he's exempt from stringing records together? Ha ha! Of course not! Enjoy the mix he's put together."

What, me self-indulgent? Never! But I'm about to head back to my hometown (Melbourne) for a holiday, and what better than to add a big underground techno party into the mix?
Even better having 7 live acts dominating proceedings, with DJs supporting. Yum. Full details on the flier. If you happen to be in Melbourne (Australia, not Florida), get'cha crap booty on and faux boogie.
Or just sit down and kick your feet up, which is what I'll be doing with my mostly-recovered busted foot.

Boasting a lot of greasepaint, big hair, and some frightening, exaggerated facial expressions – not to mention specific choreography and minimal music to score the whole caboodle – it’s no wonder that some young Japanese think of kabuki as an old fashioned, unintelligible art form that needs a good dust-down after four centuries on the go – just like Shakespeare.
Yet it’s remained remarkably durable, and has in fact made a comeback in recent years that culminated in its nomination by UNESCO in 2005 as one of the “43 Masterpieces of the Oral and Intangible Heritage of Humanity”.
Here in Tokyo, kabuki performances take place on a daily basis at the Kabuki-za theater in Ginza, a historic location first built in 1889 but consecutively destroyed by fire, earthquake and Allied bombing.
The current building, a reconstruction built after WWII, has been rendered in a Japanese baroque style that looks gorgeous, and is itself another reason to attend one of these vital Japanese cultural performances.
Word has it that this building too is fated to be destroyed, next time by a wrecking ball in the next year or so.
