I’ve made an Electric Picnic DJ Mix every year since 2008.

It’s for bumping for your festival prep for the next… Read more »

Special shoutout to the ever-brilliant Stephen Maurice Graham for his illustration. This one, he says, is down to that Psychemagik track and the film Dazed and Confused. Please enjoy 15 tracks in under an hour. A bit less talking, a bit more mixing on this one than usual. Track list Mo Kolours – ‘Mike Black’ Gary… Read more »

For our 41st podcast Aoife and I got ourselves a better audio setup with two pro microphones (thanks to all who helped with that) and took a return aural trip to Canada via  the Caribbean, Cambridge, Malmo, Manchester, LA and New York. Better equipment also means you can hear our dog Daffodil barking from downstairs… Read more »

In which Aoife and I play a plethora of amazing tunes from the last few months, remind ourselves why Purity Ring is a weird band name, why bands need to stop releasing demos as finished tracks, take a brief exploration into ’80s fanzine-assisted electronica, and inadvertently insult loads of people throughout the podcast. Oops. Enjoy…. Read more »

In which I invent a new word, Aoife and I talk about Azealia Banks (that’s her above drawn by 400 Facts), why Grimes reminds me of Opus III, why Chairlift are great, Twitter fights with Zomby, Icelandic intentions and pronunciations, a load of brilliant Irish electronica and some Shangaan electro.

The latest Nialler9 podcast is a bit different down to the fact that there are two of us. I joined Aoife for a change for the links between tunes. Besides that it’s business as usual with some enduring tunes from recent albums with diversions into folk, dance, electronic and Trinidad calypso via Van Dyke Parks… Read more »
