OFFSET/ECC MIXES – TIM BURGESS
Fancy sampling some of the sounds you’re likely to hear between bands at Offset 2010? The lads over at the Experimental Circle Club have asked a selection of artists playing and DJing their ECC stage to put together an ongoing series of mixtapes to entertain the masses. You can stream them live from mixcloud.com or download exclusively from us We Are Not a Rock Band.
Aren’t we good to you.
The first mix is from The Charlatans front man and long time vinyl enthusiast Tim Burgess who will be spinning records on the Sunday. Tim’s eclectic selection includes the newly released Factory Floor Chris Carter Remix. A track which, at last years Offset, saw an individual in the front row vomit from bass induced nausea. You’ll also hear the unlikely pairing of Flats new single ‘Rat Race’ (“Fuck the mods, cunts”) next to the truly bizarre ‘Dont Worry Kyko’ by Yoko Ono, definitely the kind future collaboration we’d like to see! (Track list is after the jump).
Offset Festival this year is held is on Saturday and Sunday 4th/5th September at Hainault Forest Country Park, just a 30 minute tube ride from central London on the central line. As always the line up brings together some groundbreaking influential artists including New York funksters Liquid Liquid, 60s Krautrock pioneers Cluster, the discordant Blurt and 90s digital terrorists Atari Teenage Riot playing alongside some of the most up and coming acts around; These New Puritans, Caribou, Invasion, Rolo Tomassi, Telepathe, Chrome Hoof and a dance tent hosted by Trailer Trash. Tickets start at just £29, with weekend a delightful £55.
Further mixes on their way from Clout, John Linger, Death In Plains, Flats and Discipline DJs. Hopefully giving you an insight in the festival, the artists, some classic sounds, hidden gems and sonic oddities from Acid House to Punk, Post-Punk, Hip Hop, Reggae, Soul and more. Stay tuned dear comrades.
