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.
I love this new Ghostpoet track because it sounds like something that was ripped from the middle of a mix, it’s got Jamie xx-style steel pans and is a general blast of fresh air.
The original track was created for the Rizlab project collaboration between Ghostpoet, Mike Skinner and Rob Harvey (The D.O.T.) but this remix is by Damu. Tonight at 7.30pm, a live interactive video for the track will be shot and broadcast in one take and shown via FACT.
