Ed Bangers newest recruit to the somewhat tired French scene, Mickey Moonlight inspires a new direction. And will defo be played out at Electric Picnic when i play there at the end of the month.

'Mickey Moonlight - Interplanetary Music (Riton Remix)

Another great find in my stash that i hadnt listened to in years until the other day was 'old skool' favourite Denis Lopez ' Dont You Wanna Be Mine'. Set for a re-release this year with a tame attempt at updating the original, it could never beat the original C&C Music Factory remix. The 'Rave' version released was a speeded up piano monster but still was shaded by the C&C mix. So, here it is... enjoy

Denise Lopez - Dont You Wanna Be Mine (Original C&C Music factory Vocal Club Mix)

And lastly i had to post up this acid trip of a track from Tom Tom Club. 'Dont Say No' is new to me as this remix is so i dont have much to say other than its possibly the finest 'acid rock dub' i ever heard. Turn it up!

Harpers Love Bizzare

Since arriving Harper has made a lasting impression on many south east of the river. Her debut was met with open arms, a heavy sigh and a cardboard box. Speeding her way like a cat out of hell she arrived at her new pad safely. Camera flashes and drinks all round. Her favourite tipple of Whiskas Milk, on the rocks was much needed and lapped up. Famed for her coat that shines like a full moon in summer, her trademark stripes and spotted stomach she was unexpecting of the adoration from her contempories that gushed with envy as green as the grass in our backyard. And on settling in, she has enthralled us with stories about her travels and filled us with promise about her hopes for the future, that will 'Set the world alight, like never before'.

Ive not seen her for a few days but i have heard that she's already ordered her catnip and is channeling with the tenacity of a praying mantis. Its a good time for all, knowing that she's even in town. For long she has been aloof. For a while distant and occupied with fighting her Poppy garden demons. But on seeing her i know for certain that she never ever, went out of style.

If there is one track that springs to mind when i think of the legendary Harper. One that conjures up images of crazy nights on the tiles, scampering around in bushes with the moonlight as our mistress, armed only with a couple of spliffs and an attitude has to be her best friend Lady Miss Kiers old band 'Deee Lite'. The track is 'Pussycat Meow Deep Remix'. Miss Kier was so enchanted on first meeting Harper that she wrote this song in her honour. They no longer speak but 'Cest La Vie'. Get your catnip at the ready and take a deep breath. Harpers Back and she's here to play.

We bow to you Harper!

They keep sayin we gonna have a late summer, that the current downpour is all part of the lead up to glorious sunshine in september but im bored of waiting! The rain has encouraged me to fiddle on my trusty laptop and push out another bootleg though.... Paperclip Peoples (Carl Craig)
track 'Throw' was a firm fav of mine back in 94. The dirty bassline that rolls and rolls gets me everytime and with all things 90s in Vogue i thought id mash it up with the 92' classic DSK 'What would we do' recently sampled on the Wiley track.

So, i doth present 'DSK People - What Would We Throw' (Rokk Pie N Mash Up)

And continuing the 90s theme, get yourself ready for new Rokk venture in the form of a new night for london town, in Shoreditch. It takes off where BUMPPS left off and begins the 2nd Saturday of October. You heard it first here....


until next time
