Paul White

paulwhite

 

Paul White returns to Dublin on Friday. One of the best hip-hop producers of the last few years. Then he goes and changes up the styles on his last album and brought in a load of live instrumentation to create some blissed-out psych and dub-pop. What’s dub-pop I hear you say? I haven’t a clue, go listen to the album though yeah?

I brought him over previously and MANY people on the night said to me it was the best gig they’d seen all year (it was June so it had won over at least 6 months of gigs).

Gonna try and get to both this and the Press Charges launch on the night, stunt doubles out the ying yang mang.

SHAMELESS SELF-PROMOTION OPPORTUNITY:

Redmonk – Paul White Mix by Redmonk on Mixcloud

Here’s a mix I did for the aforementioned Paul White gig from 2.5 years ago. All his productions from various albums. More on the hip-hop/beats tip than the new stuff. QUITE GOOD. Various people ‘in the know’ at the time probably said:

“This is the best 22-minute mix of some of Paul White’s music, in that exact order, available to stream online, that I have ever heard in my life”

YOU WOULD BE MAD NOT TO LISTEN TO IT.

Adventures in Drums by Igorthegreat on Mixcloud

Right, so this octopus who plays the drums is part of the whole DabbledooMusic thing. He’s sound. He did a mix for the rhythm fiends out there: strictly vinyl, strictly 45s. Heavy drums, funk, breakbeats, afro, that sorta thing.

Get it into ye!

DabbledooMusic Beta Launch

Wednesday, October 29th, 2014

Screenshot 2014-10-28 19.03.00

On Friday we launched the beta version of DabbledooMusic.com. We’ve spent the last year fundraising, planning and designing so we’re pretty happy to get it out there. Big ups to Brian Michael Thornton and Trev Finnegan for the trojan work with Shane McKenna and myself, serious crew!

Although we’ve done a LOT of high-fiving of late, we still have lots to do. At the moment, there is a full set of resources available for ‘The Clock’. We’ll be lashing up the rest of the resources once we’ve fully user-tested this. Have a mess around on the site and see what you think! If you know any teachers please pass it on to them too. There’s a Feedback button in the bottom left so please let us know what you think!

At present it’s optimised for laptops, desktops and interactive whiteboards. Keep an eye on the blog for future updates and big thanks to everyone who’s supported us so far, too many to mention!

Big tings up North!

Hefty lineup from the Rudimentary boyos this weekend. Richie !Kaboogie and mynameisjohn, as well as the sublime (yes I used that word) Touchy Subject.

The lads already hooked up to create this mix and have a chat in Rudimentary-curated Mix Exchange.

Two serious production talents well worth checking out, and solid DJs both. Event page is over here.
