OZMOSIS OCT 06 (Greg Wilson live mix)

OZMOSIS OCT 06 (greg wilson live mix) by gregwilson

Running for a bumper 3 hours 41 minutes, Ozmosis is a combination of recordings from my first Australian visit in October 2006, edited together to form a whole and given away as a limited data disc, which also included my lecture at the Red Bull Music Academy in Melbourne, and various interviews, articles and photographic images that I took on my travels. The 3 appearances were at the infamous Revolver in Melbourne on Oct 21st, Sugar in Adelaide on Oct 27th, and Mad Racket in Sydney on Oct 28th. Here’s a YouTube clip filmed at the Melbourne gig:

The following was written on my return to the UK:

Got back from Australia a couple of days ago. Went over for the Red Bull Academy and a trio of DJ dates in Melbourne, Adelaide and Sydney. Had a great time and already planning a return next summer, when I also hope to take in Perth and Brisbane, as well as Auckland and Wellington in NZ.

The whole Red Bull thing is very impressive – so much preparation and attention to detail (not to mention funding) goes into it all. The students really know their stuff as well, and it was an absolute pleasure to be invited across to give a talk (on UK dance culture pre-House) and host an editing demo (old school style on reel-to-reel).

The club dates went brilliantly – having now played in New York, Australia and various European countries, it’s clear that the underground scene is undoubtedly global. The internet has truly revolutionised the way we’re all inter-connecting and even though I was on the other side of the World, I met so many people on a similar wavelength.

As a relatively new country with a multicultural vibe, I’ve a feeling that Australia is primed to really make its mark. Despite not having the direct connections with black culture that have had such a huge influence in the US and UK, a younger generation is now retrospectively embracing the dance music of the 70’s and 80’s, taking in new (old) influences. There’s a melting pot bubbling away, which I’m sure will result in some really interesting groove fusion.

Having spent a few weeks over there, I’m more confident than ever that we’re entering an exciting new era for dance culture. There are definite parallels with the early 80’s when the supposed death of Disco allowed dance music the necessary space to explore new hybrid forms in a more fertile underground environment. However, whilst this was mainly centred around New York, nowadays the geography is less important – the scene being globalized, rather than regionalized.

As Ian Brown once famously said (paraphrasing Rakim), ‘it’s not where you’re from, it’s where you’re at’ – words that resonate more strongly today than ever.

Funny Jeopardy Questions

Cake - Let Me Go (Live - Jan 22, 2002)

When she walks
She swings her arms, instead of her hips
When she talks she moves her mouth, instead of her lips
I've waited for her for so long
I've waited for her for so long
I've wondered if I could hang on
I've wondered if I could hang on

"Let me go," she said
"Let me go," she said
Let me go and I will want you more
Let me go, let me go
Let me go and I will want you

When she wants
She wants the sun instead of the moon
When she sees
She sees the stars inside of her room
I've waited for her for so long
I've waited for her for so long
I've wondered if I could hang on
I've wondered if I could hang on

"Let me go," she said
"Let me go," she said
Let me go and I will want you more
"Let me go," she said
Let me go
Let me go, and I will want you

"Let me go," she said
"Let me go," she said
"Let me go," she said
Let me go, let me go

Vinyl sales jumped 39 percent in 2011

Vinyl sales jumped 39 percent in 2011, music industry not quite dead

By Liza Eckert

There’s been a lot of doom-and-gloom talk in the music industry for several years now. Execs keep blaming internet piracy for slumping sales figures while record stores large and small are closing their doors. But it seems like the industry keeps chugging back, refusing to fully die.

We previously noted a very tiny increase in sales for the first half of 2011 — up one percent compared to the first six months of 2010 — which was the first sales boost since 2004. It seems the good news continued through the rest of the year.
Nielsen SoundScan reported that vinyl records saw a huge bump in sales last year — 3.9 million units, compared to 2.8 million in 2010. That adds up to a 39.3 percent increase.

Vinyl has been slowly crawling back into public consciousness for a few years now, and it’s gone from a hipster-nostalgia thing to a more widespread resurgence. It’s possible to buy albums from some really popular artists on records, as opposed to just the obscure indie acts, which means the medium will naturally have more mass market appeal. And whatever else you might want to say about mass market appeal, the fact is that it will translate into larger sales.

Consumers aren’t stupid. For people to spend money, they have to be getting a product that’s worth it. As the Dead Kennedys said, “Sales are slumping and no one will say why. Could it be they put out one too many lousy records?”

Focusing on putting out higher quality records instead of flash-in-the-pan garbage will help. There were a lot of decent releases in 2011 from a lot of well-known acts, so that had to be a boost.

Records are, in fact, a really good way to keep people actually paying for music instead of pirating it, as well. A lot of fans love the tangible aspect of the format and the accompanying larger-scale artwork. Bands can also include extra incentives to make the deal even sweeter, like bonus tracks or free posters, that aren’t included in other versions. And if they put in a free download code, the listener can also grab a digital copy to load into their iPod.

Events like Record Store Day encourage artists to put out special edition releases, like singles or bonus tracks, that are available in limited quantities in selected stores. It makes people want them, and it’s pretty win-win — the consumer gets unique stuff on top of the album, and the artist gets to actually make a living.

Queen - Keep Yourself Alive (Live @ Rock Monteal)

The Revenge - In Their House #16

Graeme Clarke - known more commonly in house and disco circles as The Revenge - began producing in his early teenage years, making a skewed blend of electronic music using a couple of his dad’s old drum machines, a four track and a sampler. And while his methods may have substantially developed since those early forays into the world of production, the intervening years have done nothing to damped the affable Scot’s passion for the beat.

Now producing for over 15 years, Graeme continues to put his fingers to work on a variety of projects in the studio, including music for DFA, Buzzin' Fly, Domino and Pokerflat, as well as his own (sadly, soon to be defunct) Instruments of Rapture imprint. Here, he brings us an hour of sublime disco edits and bouncing house beats; a suitably optimistic way to kick off the In Their House series in 2012…

Sum up 2011 in a sentence…

Another ruddy excellent adventure!

Any particular highlights you’d like to pick out for us…?

I really enjoyed the touring much more this year. It took me a while to get used to the travelling over the last few years, but once I got the album projects finished in January it allowed me to concentrate on DJing a bit more.

Where did you see in the New Year?

I was playing a couple of parties in Sydney with Craig Smith and Motor City Drum Ensemble. So much fun.

You make or have made music under a lot of different aliases…would you say you’re truest to the music you love as The Revenge?

The Revenge is my solo stuff, but I have a strong bond with all of the projects I work on.

Tightness of money aside, what’s been the biggest challenge of running your own label?

The admin stuff ... I hate it. I'm about to finish my existing label and start a new one this spring with fresh material but will have some help so that I can concentrate on the music side of things.

How and where was the mix recorded?

I recorded it in my studio in Glasgow using my E&S DJR400 mixer with Serato.

2011 was the year that more ‘poppy’ house music really came to the fore…do you think they’ll be a backlash against it in 2012?

I think it's great to hear the variety in House music now. There have been some great songs released in the last 12 months and I think that will inspire more producers to up their game. The walls have come down in so many areas of the industry and it's a really exciting time to be involved.

Anything else you’d like to tell us about…?

The Instruments Of Rapture label will finish after the next release but will continue as an event which I'm currently running with Craig Smith, Ali OOFT and Harri at the Sub Club in Glasgow on the first Sunday of the month. Our first four events at the end of 2011 have been great so I'm hoping that continues through 2012.

Queen - I Want To Break Free

I want to break free
I want to break free
I want to break free from your lies
You're so self satisfied, I don't need you
I've got to break free
God knows, God knows I want to break free

I've fallen in love
I've fallen in love for the first time
And this time I know it's for real
I've fallen in love yea
God knows, God knows I've fallen in love

It's strange but it's true, hey yea
I can't get over the way you like me like you do
But I have to be sure
When I walk out that door

Oh how I want to be free baby
Oh how I want to be free
Oh how I want to break free

But life still goes on
I can't get used to livin' without livin' without
Livin' without you by my side
I don't want to live alone, hey
God knows, got to make it on my own

So baby can't you see
I've got to break free
I've got to break free
I want to break free, yea

I want, I want, I want
I want to break free


Pretty decent write-up about the single on Wikipedia.

Queen - Somebody To Love (Live)

On a bit of a Queen kick at the moment:

The Impressions - It's All Right

Say it's all right (it's all right)
Say it's all right (it's all right)
It's all right, have a good time
'Cause it's all right, whoa, it's all right

We're gonna move it slow
When lights are low
When you move it slow, it sounds like more
And it's all right, whoa, it's all right

Now listen to the beat
Kinda pat your feet
You got soul, and everybody knows
That it's all right, whoa, it's all right

When you wake up early in the morning
Feelin' sad like so many of us do
Hum a little soul
Make life your goal
And surely something's got to come to you
And say it's all right (it's all right)
Say it's all right (it's all right)

It's all right, have a good time
'Cause it's all right, whoa, it's all right
Now everybody clap your hands
Give yourself a chance
You got soul, and everybody knows
That it's all right, whoa, it's all right

Someday I'll find me a woman
Who will love and treat me real nice
Then my woe's got to go
And my love, she will know
From morning, noon, and night
And she's got to ...

Say it's all right (it's all right)
Say it's all right (it's all right)
It's all right, have a good time
'Cause it's all right, whoa, it's all right

Now everybody clap your hands
Now give yourselves a chance
You got soul...
