I am very happy to present a special new mix project I have been producing on and off over the last month or so.
My friend Martin Brass has an exhibition entitled 'Sex & Cops II' starting on Saturday 25th September (further details here). We were discussing it a few months ago and I suggested that it would be good fun to do a mix for the event. It's actually ended up as two different mixes, one for the Sex and one for the Cops! Both mixes clock in around 36 minutes and are packed with relevant sample material and groovy music. Needless to say that the 'Sex' mix in particular contains plenty of material that you might not want to expose impressionable young people to!
I'll be DJing at the Sex & Cops II party in Aalst on Saturday 25th so maybe I'll see you there!
Details and download links below. As I'm doing this post in Belgium and not with my usual set up I've had problems uploading a zip file containing both mixes and artwork. Therefore the two mixes have to be downloaded separately. They are meant to go together so please download them both!
SEX AND COPS
1. Sex (Not Just Fucking) - 36:55
2. Cops (Probably A Robbery) - 36:00

EASTER BUNFIGHT MIX - GOOD FRIDAY 2010
A nicely weird beard mix-up for Easter. It's not especially Easter-like
(there's no religious ho-ha for a start) although there are a couple of brief moments to justify the theme. I haven't had time to sort out a tracklist for this one. It may follow, it may not.
It's abstract electronic stuff largely with a few library grooves thrown in. Amongst others there's Richard Pinhas, Monty Python, Pierre Arvay, George Harrison, Omar Khorshid, William Basinski, Moebius and Robin Gibb!

I'm happy to present the first multi-artist/multi-genre Polle Van De Gash mix for quite some time. Recorded on the 10th November, it's taken me nearly a month to get around to putting the various bits together and get it uploaded. It's business as unusual, a truckload of weird and wonderful tracks mixed and moulded together into a gloriously disorientating and engaging 75 minutes. Rock, psych, library music, electronics, French nutters, Chubby Checker. Well, I hope it's engaging anyway. I'm pretty happy with it so it's tough if your not. You can always drop it in your trash and play some of your usual fare on your iTunes instead. Tidy.
Thanks to everyone that's downloaded some of the stuff on the blog so far. Most downloads are in double figures by now!
It's a pretty big file, 320 kbps. 38 tracks. Running time 75:44.
BITE THE BISCUIT

Ah, the mighty Heldon! Fresh from my Human League post a couple of days ago I got the urge to follow it up quickly. So here we have a C90's worth of Heldon action. If you don't know Heldon then I'm not going to fill you in with too much detail. Suffice to say this is seriously heavyweight French prog/RIO music - in turn harsh, cold, abstract, cosmic and intense but always utterly beguiling. I hope I haven't undermined these qualities by botching together these mixes from their varied LPs. Both the mixes are self-contained but intended to flow one after the other for a 95 minute Heldon-megablast! Go on you buggers, see what you think...
HELDON MIX I - 47:52
VIRGIN SWEDISH BLUES
BACK TO HELDON
BALLADE POUR PUIG ANTICH
UNE DROLE DE JOURNEE
LE FILS DES SOUCOUPES VOLANTES (VERTES)
HELDON MIX II - 46:52
IN THE WAKE OF KING FRIPP
OUAIS MARCHAIS MIEUX QU'EN 68 (LE VOYAGEUR)
OMAR DIOP BLONDIN
LES SOUCOUPES VOLANTES VERTES

There's been a bit of a Human League thing going down in my corner of Bethnal Towers recently. I think it started when we were playing 'Black Hit of Space' while testing out K-Dog's 'new-old' amp and speaker combo at his place in Aalst a couple of weeks back. To my mild surprise, my girlfriend (hey zoeteke!) was digging it. So I thought a Human League compilation for her would be in order. The compilation covers the first four albums and I think offers a pretty good selection. However, there's an absence of most of the weird and wonderful instrumental stuff and early works so I thought I'd have a bit of fun with it and generate a new blog post in the process.
By the way, thanks to those of you who've downloaded mixes so far. No one's downloaded the Raj & Rolex album yet though. Go on, don't be shy, give it a try!
THE HUMAN LEAGUE - A POLLE VAN DE GASH MIX

The third and final part (for now) of the Library Mix series. It was done on the 4th of July shortly after Parts I and II but extensive holiday activities over the summer (lucky me!) means a delay in posting it. More of the same
multifarious melodies and abstractions - 39 tracks squeezed into a 66 minute mix.
320kbps for extra pleasure.
