Mixing it up!

Mixing it up!

Ok at least its only two weeks now, I know I’m slack but bear with me I’m in deep! We have just started mixing this week with Steve Dub which is going really well. It is really exciting, I finally feel now like there is light at the end of the tunnel! It has been a long and winding road making this record and finally knowing that we’re near the end and hearing the first few tracks mixed is such a high! Finally hearing the fruits of the past two years having been so deep in it is such an amazing experience, we have been putting the final touches on 3 tracks this week “Natural Selection” with The Black Angels, “Caged Bird” featuring the vocals of Katrina Ford who sings in a band called Celebration and who also sang with TV On The Radio on “Wolf Like Me” and “Another Night Out” featuring the mighty Mark Lanegan. Hopefully we’ll have another five done next week so I’ll let you know how it goes....
Since I last reached out I’ve had a couple of amazing dj gigs including Club Midi in Cluj, Romania and Paradiso in Amsterdam which was fucking incredible - it was Earth’s tenth anniversary and my brother’s girlfriends birthday so 14 of us hit the club and it could not of been better great crowd amazing production and a really fun night to play, I went off to the Isle of Man on Friday and was intrigued before I went as I hadn’t been before. It was great – had a good night there and then again in London on Saturday at Ministry where I played with Agoria.
We now have a release date for the Heavy drug remixes which is the 27th of December again that’s King Unique, Steve Mac and Future Beat Alliance. The mixes will be available from both I-tunes and Beatport. They might take slightly longer to go up on I Tunes in the US but fear not they will be available there too soon! They should be available on Beatport in the US on the 27th though. We also found out that Heavy Drug is going to be used in an episode of Skins in 2010 so listen out for that!

So apart from generally being locked in the studio I had a great night out with my 12 year old daughter at the O2 getting jiggy to Beyonce. She was dope! Fuck that girl can dance!! I’ve also been putting finishing touches to the artwork which is looking really beautiful its very different from before as its photographic based but with a twist, very psychedelic and other-worldly!
Right I’m out of here – it was a long weekend and need some downtime!

For some entertainment check out MGMT and all the other bands on Yo Gabba Gabba on you tube, Natalie Portman rapping on Saturday night live and our ex monitor engineer Dan trying to fly at a recent Faith No More gig oh my god its hilarious!!!!..........

  11. I heard an extended version of "Natural Selection" being played over the speakers before Black Rebel Motorcycle Club's show in LA. It had this droning "dreeeaaammmiinnnnggg" lyric in part of it. I was wondering if you're aware of it, and if so, is it a remix and who did it? I'd really love to get that version.

  17. James dear,
    Nice to see things have worked out with your uncle venture.
    It makes ones heart glow having you and the Radiohead boys come from ones home town.
    It's a shame your all middle class but then life always throws a spanner in the works.
    Anyway, I see your playing Bexhill soon I may pop down if I can get a ticket.
    I only live down the road from there, In Brighton- how I have managed to have a nice (enough) house in one of the better parts of Brighton is beyond me, I didn't even really work until my 30's.

    Be good, life is a swift game

    PS I hear Bowie is dusting down his gloves it would be wonnderful if you two did something together, also Lou Reed, Patti Smith,Sparks
