Today’s post is in honour of and inspired by my nephew. I used to despair about the boy’s taste in music it was all that Euro trance shit and gangster rap, the only redeeming fact was that he disliked Mumford and fucking Sons nearly as much as I did.
L like so many other teenagers in this neck of the woods could not wait to attend the rite of passage that is T in The Park. I was a little concerned about this as the boy is quite vague at the best of times and wondered how he would get on in amongst all the chancers and wideoes but he survived to tell the tale.
I saw him a couple of weeks ago and I asked him how he had got on at T and was informed “It was the best time in my life, absolutely amazing”
So I enquired about who he saw and his favourite act and his answer stunned me, he said that he had been blown away by Ritchie Hawtin and also the Slam boys had been brilliant and so had Green Velvet. He had seen quite a few bands but the Slam tent was by far the best part of the festival.
So in honour of L surviving his rite of passage and his new found love of minimal techno and wobbly acid lines I will post my favourite remix by the Canadian producer and exceptional DJ.
Have a good weekend people, safe in the knowledge that some of the younger generation are acquiring a decent taste in dance music.
