FACT puts Ice Rink Remix in its Tracks of the week

ice rink

I mised this at the time… FACT bigging up the Ice Rink remix. You can hear this on the myspace and on the mix for Crazy Legs club. I am playing a Crazy Legs soon, on the 31st, so you can hear it on a big system then.

WILEY: ‘ICE RINK’ (RIKO VOCAL – GRIEVOUS ANGEL REMIX)

“Woofah magazine co-editor and the man behind one of last year’s most underrated albums, Belief is the Enemy, has been foraging into UK Funky productions lately, and they’re fantastic. If you’ve heard Kode 9’s recent sets you’ll have heard GA’s edit of ‘Loser’, which is coming out soon on a white label under an alias, but his remixes of Wiley’s classic ‘Ice Rink’ step things up even further. The instrumental is good, but it’s all about the Riko version, which keeps the original’s alien squelches and clashes, mutates the best vocal from the original 12″s, and pretty much pisses all over the entire Major Lazer album.”

Thanks Tom!

FACT magazine review of Bubblez feat. Lady Saw: ‘Loser’


FACT Magazine have a good review of Lady Saw / Move Down Low up here.

Thanks Tam!

Rating: 7.5

“It’s no secret that the man behind both the edits on this 12″ is Sheffield-based dubstep producer/Woofah magazine co-editor/general blogger dun’ good Grievous Angel, and they’ve been a pivotal point of Kode 9’s sets for a while; usually played either side of his own ‘Black Sun’. The familiarity of both tracks might have detracted from their impact since that night at Beyond, and I’m not sure either are as great as Grievous’ UK funky edit of Wiley’s ‘Ice Rink’, but still – if ever there’s a track you’ll ignore when it finally comes out, then hear it a year down the line and realise how stupid you were and end up shelling half a week’s rent on discogs then it’s this one.”

Jeremy Deller’s Manchester procession

I went to Jeremy Deller’s procession in Manchester the weekend before last. It was fantastic! Deller’s aim was to represent lots of people who don’t normally figure in civic processions, without breaking the concept of an actual civic procession. We thought it worked really well. Right up History is Made At Night’s street. And indeed Infinite’s – this post is a response to Georgina’s comments on her blog about her end of year show, which is a response to John Eden’s psychogeographical review of it.

Here’s the Guardian’s video:

And another official video about the marchers, including the marching bands – this one performing the Fall’s Hit the North, and the boy racers:

The front of the procession – this one’s just some guy with a phone I think…
<

I didn’t video all the bet bits but you had:

– the few surviving Manchester mill workers

– various May Queens

– mobile libraries

– the crowd of goths who hang around a town square with a truck with their favourite local goth band laying

– a 60-strong troupe of Hindu bag pipers in full Scottish regalia (!!!!!!!)

– a collection of boy racers in souped up hot hatches with massive soundsystems, all tuned into a special pirate radio broadcast by the Blackout Crew

– a reconstruction of England’s oldest tea toom

– the African buskers and dancers from the city centre on a flat bed truck performing for the crowd
– best of all, a steel band playing various Manchester hits, especially Joy Division, New Order and Buzzcocks.



It was all absolutely wonderful. It was the sort of thing Sheffield should do.
