Clark Mix

This came out of nowhere. It wasn't in the "coming up" section and after falling in love with the new album Totems Flare, I couldn't have got a better surprise than this, Clark doing a 30 minute mix for Mary Anne Hobbs Experimental for the 15th of July 2009.

No tracklist again this week but I can tell you it's a good one. Opening with a track from what was easily one of my favourite albums from last year, Harvey Milk's Life... The Best Game In Town, just blew me off my fucking seat. Headbanging at my work desk did follow. Then mixing from that into Rainbow Voodoo, one of the highlights from Totems Flare, made me realise I was about to get into one of the best mixes from the show all year. A few more tracks from the album are on there and other artists like Zomby get an airing as well.

One thing though, when he launches into Hypnotize by Biggie, a track I fucking adore, all the swearing has been taken out and it sounds FUCKING SHIT. That's one thing that's always bugged me about the MAH show. It goes out at 3 in the morning, yet they constantly edit swearing. I just think if you're the kind of person that gets offended by swearing in music, don't listen to the radio at 3am! It's not like it's prime time, yet we're subjected to versions of songs that sound like they're being played on some Video Hits type show. And with hiphop, there's more that's cut out than what's left in! So we get to hear Biggie rap every fourth word. Awesome. In this it sounds like he's fucked it up a bit more to kind of hide the swearing edits but, it doesn't work. Leave the swearing in or don't fucking play hiphop. Simple.

Anyway that's seriously the ONLY downside of what is an incredible mix.

Mochipet Mix

Mary Anne Hobbs Experimental, 8th of July 2009.

I'd been meaning to check out Mochipet for a while. I was going to download his XLR8R Podcast but after browsing the tracklist it looked a bit too much like a silly mashup set so I didn't bother. And after listening to his MAH mix, yes it is like that but he just pulls it off somehow. Silly animal costumes and all.

Tracklisting to follow


P.S. That "tracklisting to follow" is copied and pasted from the BBC website. It's basically code for "there won't be a tracklist for this mix".

P.P.S What You Know by T.I. still rules. And Bump by Spank Rock is still pretty cool, even when being banged into MJ's Thriller.

Guido Mix

Was looking forward to this as I really like the Punch Drunk record I have of his. This mix might be a tad too safe / mainstream for my tastes but it definitely has its moments.
