Laraaji - Celestial Music 1978-2011
Beautiful music and lovely packaging with interview and photos
if you’re like me and taking it easy rather than getting involved in all the bank holiday weekend techno shenanigans on the go right now then tune in to Beat Beneath tonight to make sure you don’t miss your fix.
New music from Coni, Tin Man/Dozzy, Gesloten Cirkel, Djrum, Nicuri and plenty more plus some of the usual digging through the shelves for some timeless goodies.
stepping out of the clubnight promoting game for a while. it’s something that doing properly takes a lot of time, money, energy, creativity and networking; plus the odd bit of support from your circle of friends and those whose endeavours you’ve given support to over the years; and also perhaps the security of knowing where in the country you’ll be living/working in 3 weeks’ time or if you’ll still have a job in 3 months’ time.
as i can’t really lay claim to any of these and don’t see the point in doing these sort of things half-arsed it’s time to take a break, cut down on commitments and sort shit out. still gonna be involved in as much music shit as i can of course, updates about the rest of it in due course :)
Had a couple of seriously good guest shows last month but now I’m itching to do a proper 2 hour mix especially with all the good music that’s been emerging lately.
Expect new gear from Mathematics, Strength Music, Horizontal Ground, Kangding Ray, Planetary Assault Systems, Christina Vantzou, plus plenty other good shit.
Listen here from 8-10pm tonight live, or anytime after.

I’ve got an array of guest spots lined up for the radio show in 2014 so it’s time to present the first: New Jersey native Ruben Candelario a.k.a. Nicuri.
Nicuri’s friends and associates include the likes of Dj Qu and Joey Anderson, and he has been refining his own take on that dark, deep raw house sound that’s been consistently coming out of the tri-state area in recent years. He already has several releases to his name including contributions to the always high-calibre Exchange Place series on Qu’s Strength Music label and 2012’s Paradigms EP on Bliq; and his A Lucid Dream/Moments EP is dropping imminently on UK label Mora Music.
Those in the know are predicting big things for Ruben in the coming year, and it’s my pleasure to present an exclusive one hour mix from him on this coming Sunday’s Beat Beneath.
The mix will also be available to download shortly after as part of a brand new podcast series - stay tuned :)
