Jamie Lloyd shares exclusive new DJ mix

Sydney’s warehouse party scene will be familiar with Jamie Lloyd who emerged in 2006 with his debut Trouble Within and then 2009’s Beware of The Light through Future Classic. Positive international attention was quickly followed by a remix EP featuring Matthew Herbert, and regular DJ sets whilst studying Chinese Medicine & Acupuncture.

Lloyd’s sound simmers cool with influences from Moodyman and House of Jezebel to Mzungu and Arthur Russell, his ear attuned to the quality Mad Racket sound systems, informing a skillfully sparse yet warm production aesthetic.

FFF Radio is happy to present over an hour of that sound for your very own ears in our latest podcast mix, direct and exclusive from Jamie himself. Download or stream the mix below and see Jamie Lloyd mix it up live at the Spice Cellar in Sydney on August 15th and 22nd.

FFF Hot Tape 005 – Cardopusher

For our fifth Hot Tape we invited one of our favorite, most consistent producers to take over the helm – Venezuelan-bred and Barcelona-based producer and DJ Cardopusher. An artist with some significant contributions to the electronic music landscape over the last 5 years, Cardopusher has been consistent to pumping out quality tunes across a range of genres stretching from breakcore, to dubstep, to his current incarnation as a mastercrafter of sinister, drum machine warping acid, house and techno.

A master of beat programming, Cardo’s productions stand out for their tight dynamics, sharp drops and capacity for high impact synth and sample work. He also has a bloody lot of fun making the tracks, and that shines through – every sinister synth is matched with a tongue in cheek playfulness that invites you in to boogie down til apocalypse. Drawing proudly on his influences of early old school Electro, Chicago House, Detroit Techno, and the combined output of Trax Records, Dancemania and Underground Constructions, Cardo blends these elements into something faster, heavier and unmistakably sounding like it came from the future. This retro-futurist dedication is undoubtedly what lead himself and labelmate Nehuen to form Classicworks, a hotly tipped label featuring work from the label honchos and up and coming artists such as Nick Hook, Vin Sol, Scratcha DVA and Matrixxxman.

His love for the drum machine and wierd fuzzy synthesis shines through in this absolutely blazing Hot Tape, which we are lucky enough to be launching today. Blaring through Acid House 303 marathons to straight booty and jacking house, Cardo has joined the dots betweeen underground classics and newer offerings from Bodyjack, Creepy Autograph, Borai and his own blistering productions. It’s all guns blazing on this one – crank it up in your headphones and instantly be transported to the best warehouse party you’ve ever been to.

FFF Hot Tape 002 – Aoi

For the second installment in our FFF Hot Tape series, we’re honored to have the one and only AOI step up to the plate. The man has featured on our site many times, and given his output, it’s no surprise to see him back here.

Regularly heralded as one of Australia’s wildest and most prolific beat makers; when AOI isn’t producing albums for Lukey Cage, GDP, The Baroness or releasing an uncountable amount of skewed hip hop beats under his own name, the man is often found haunting the second-hand record shops of North Melbourne, adding to his ever expanding and always daunting record collection. Seriously, this guy has an entire living room dedicated to a vinyl collection that spans hip hop, electronic music, library records, 70’s soul, psych rock, Japanese anime soundtracks and all other bizarre points in between. It represents a lifetime dedication to digging in dusty crates, sampling and the vinyl format.

AOI’s sampling and digging prowess is what puts him ahead of everyone else in the game, and exactly why we asked him to make a 60 minute mix that digs deep into this collection. It’s a truly rare visit through the labyrinth of influences and sample sources of a hard working producer and obsessive collector – an absolute goldmine for the fellow record enthusiast or sample trainspotter. AOI has declined the opportunity to present a track list, and with over 60 tracks blazing in through the hour, it’s a much better idea to crank this baby up, light a phatty or take a sip, and enjoy the ride.

FFF Hot Tape 001 – Pacheko

This month, FFF Radio is excited to launch a fortnightly ‘FFF Hot Tape‘ mix series whereby we invite one of our favourite artists to step up to the plate and lay down a mix of music from their crates, collections and hearts. Sometimes you’ll get a sneak preview into new and emerging talent, bold statements by artists at the top of their game and specially crafted, connoisseur-ish insights into the record collections of some of the most talented musical minds emerging today.

So, now to present the first installment in our series, for which we invited Venezuelan bass aficionado Pacheko to step up. For those of you who don’t know, Pacheko (sometimes producing with his partner in crime Pocz), is best known for his role in shining light on Venezuela’s Tuki Changa scene.

Tuki Changa is a style of techno distinct to Venezuela, combining simplistic, high energy synths with driving, grimey tribal beats. He recently combined with fellow Venezuelan Pocz for ‘Changa Letal’ on Buraka Som Sistema’s Enchufada label, as well as contributing to the crazy-good ‘Changa Tuki Classics’ compilation from the same label. Now based in Barcelona, the DJ and producer melds his local produce with influences of Chicago house, Detroit Techno and UK Bass music into a sweaty, pressure-driven junglistic space chamber.

Pacheko’s mix deftly spans this range of influences, while drawing the dots between drum machine-driven rhythms from around the world. It’s the perfect antidote to your mid week hustle, your ideal hype machine before heading out for a weekend of debauchery, and an excellent way to launch our new mix series.

Joker: Live on Triple Zed, 102.1FM

Joker live mix on FFF Radio

 

This Bristol bred DJ and producer comes with endorsements from the likes of Kode 9 for the BBC Radio 1 Experimental generation bass program and releases on both Hyperdub, Tectonic and Terror rhythm.

Joker’s merging of rnb, hip hop, grime and dubstep took him to recently release Top of the Game, featuring the epic instrumental – Gullybrook Lane, which got picked up by the likes of Plastician and Benga and featured on Soul Jazz’s Steppas Delight Comp – quickly becoming a diggers calling card.

As part of his east coast tour, Joker joined us at 4ZzZFM for live mix in studio 2 after a big night at Bar Soma, before jetting back to London for a FWD party with Shackleton, Loefah, and Ramadanman.

Hudson Mohawke & Mamiko Motto: Live on Triple Zed, 102.1FM

Following on from their live show at the red lit bass bins of Bar Soma in Brisbane – Hudson Mohawke (Warp) and Samurai.FM Amsterdam DJ Mamiko Motto – joined Prince Nod at 4ZzZ, 102.1 FM for an exclusive live mix in Studio 2.

This is 30 minutes of up close and personal mixing; from a musical couple who seem to enjoy the off kilter edges of the musical spectrum; who aren’t afraid to drop the beat, get weird n ambient, and then bring it all back with some sexy broken rnb, or 8 bit beat rush.

Big thanks to White Rhino and Dank Morass for keeping us company and bringing HudMo+Mamiko to our shores! And thanks to everone else who kept us company at the station!
