Testing, testing…1, 2, 3, testing…t, t, t, t, testing.

I seem to be having a few little problems with pingbacks and notifications, which a couple of readers have mentioned and I have also noticed something similar on K’lee’s blog recently.

So this is a test post to help the WordPress Happiness Engineers to track and capture any gremlins who are lurking in the system.

But since I have you here, you might as well get something out of it, so here’s one of my strange remixes for you to listen to and/or download.

It’s a bona-fide ’80s pop classic which I’m sure a lot of you will recognise, spliced rather neatly together with a band who were one of their major influences and one of my all time favourites. So click the link below or the image above and enjoy, completely gratis and free of charge, my latest understated masterpiece…

Any feedback about that or any notification problems will be, as ever, gratefully received.

Mixing lice and noise.

Another lazy weekend, another chance to sit in the sunshine and do some remixing.

This time, the victim subject of my sonic tomfoolery is Stephin Merritt, the singer/songwriter also known as The Magnetic Fields and his strange little song, The Meaning of Lice, which I mashed together with an Art of Noise percussion sample

Here are the lyrics;

Lice, lice, divine device
Miscellaneous
Ticks, ticks, and magic tricks
Subcutaneous
Fleas, fleas, STDs
All of Egypt on their knees
Lice, lice in paradise,
A necessary heresy.

Our god would want their sod
To turn to pestilence
Strange angels so unjust
To peasants in their tents
Murder, rust bringer
Of each leech and skin stinger
Lice, lice in paradise
Religion ain’t philosophy

Lice, lice, divine device
Miscellaneous
Ticks, ticks, and magic tricks
Subcutaneous
Fleas, fleas, STDs
All of Egypt on their knees
Lice, lice in paradise
A necessary heresy

…and here is my mix, along with the supremely gloopy video I made to accompany it.

I give you, The Art Of Lice.

Return of DJ Nobody.

To help take my mind off the stress and turmoil of the past few weeks, I’ve been mucking around with audio-visual gadgets again, to bring you two additions to my ever-expanding collection of psychedelic remix videos.

The first frenetic explosion of sound and colour is an unlikely collision between African rhythms and Balearic beats, mixing The Sahara All-Stars with Beat Connection, resulting in Take Your Balearic Trunk Soul Rhythm

Secondly, a more subtle reworking of a song by electronic music innovator and producer, Imogen Heap, the lovely Glittering Cloud, unimaginatively renamed by me as Stuttering Cloud.
