So this gem of a mix by Joe Goddard & Full Nelson came out in April and I’ve been listening to it pretty regularly since. I’ve totally fallen in love with it; it’s very much a case of the more I listen, the more I like. So imagine my surprise when I check the SoundCloud page today and spy it’s only had a pitiful 230 or so plays and only 65 downloads. What’s up people?! From the Casetteboy opening to Totally Enormous Extinct Dinosaurs downplaying it with beautiful track Critisize, to Four Tet’s luscious remix of Apple Bobbing by Joe Goddard to the inclusion of Golden Axe by the awesomely-named Mums Of Death, this is simply brilliant.
Drums Of Death is actually featured on this mix a few times, but it’s really his pairing with Mumdance that’s his standout moment here. In fact, despite this mix showcasing only a few acts from the Greco-Roman stable, it flows wonderfully and has some real headphones moments. Do this mix justice and download it now.

XOYO continues to get in awesome promotors week after week, next saturday (12th Feb) is no exception. The Plump DJ’s have joined forces with Lock ‘n’ Load events (SW4/Together) to bing you ‘Grand Hotel’ a new night and extension of the Plump’s acclaimed record label, which features a line up hand picked by the guys themselves.
Yes! The mighty, voodoo-cursed Drums of Death has joined forces with his Southern counterpart, the grimy, bassline-driven Mumdance. Together they form the deadly venom duo of, yeah, you guessed it, Mums Of Death.
Their debut collaboration, the “Golden Axe” EP, is a fusion of their two characteristic styles: a mixture of bassline, 8-bit, and rave cuts. It’s only appropriate that the accompanying video is an old 8-bit retro-role-playing game about a pill’ed up Horn wearing Nordic, trying to navigate his way around a pixelated nightclub. WIN.
The Mums of Death EP is out now!

Chew the Fat, possibly one of my favourite nights when its hosted at the Arches, is putting its July Competition winner – Last Japan – on as its warm up tomorrow. Plugged as a star of the future in their small write up about him on Chew’s website, he’s already being making large steps and produced his own track, “Oi!” out on Bullet Train Records, it seems to be the standard to produce your own stuff nowadays if you want to set yourself apart from the other Dj’s.
Not content with this he has done official remixes for Diplo, Laidback Luke and Brodinski.
Diplo and Luke’s track, “Hey!” has been featured on countless mixtapes i’ve heard recently and has been blogged extensively. Its standard romping electro from Diplo and Luke in their usual mould however Last Japan dosen’t add much except another breakdown and more synth but a solid track none the less.
The second remix offering is of Brodinski and Mumdance’s Eurostarr, different from his last remix, a more tech house sound thats short and sweet with relentless stabs and thumb piano’s, which make’s this a heavy track.
This all leads on neatly to the Mixtape that Chew the Fat had Last Japan pull together before his upcoming gig at the arches. Loads of floor fillers plus his own tracks and remixs. Nothing new but try not fidgeting in you seat to Jack beats remix of ‘Get Off’ and ‘Work’ from Kill the Noise. If your in the area, Get down to the Arches tomorrow, its only a Tenner.
