Slight Return Part 2 – The Remix Circle Jerk

The Remix Circle Jerk
The Remix Circle Jerk

We’re using the continued lack of entry to the RDU studio to piece together some mixes from ideas we’ve had over the years.

One of them was to try and construct a show of nothing but remixes that were all linked together. Every act had to appear in the playlist twice, both in the guise of remixer and of original artist, with these tracks following each other in the running order. The aim was to finish the show with a remix from a band that started the whole programme off.

To be honest, having to describe the premise is hard and does make the whole project sound awful, but we have managed to piece 80 minutes worth of music that does adhere to the basic principles.

It’s called the Remix Circle Jerk because it is a series of remixes that come full circle and, let’s be frank, it is also an exercise in wanking off.

And here’s the playlist in full…

  1. Can’t hardly wait to get my ears around this, and last week’s. PS do I get a point for spotting the Bluetones reference? Bluetonic is (smooth) criminally underrated!

    1. That reference was the icing on the cake. I was originally thinking of an earlier record – The Monochromes Set’s “He’s Frank (Slight Return)” – but when I was Googling for an image to use at the top of the playlist I was accidentally reminded of the Bluetones classic (is classic too strong a word? I don’t think so).

  2. Fantastic set gents. I <3 it HARD, so HARD :)

    Have you guys heard of Tim Healy? He's a freakin' rad and up for it Tech Lord. He played that Van She remix of The Klaxons at Rainbow Serpent this year (from what I can remember…)

    Miss you all heaps. Look after yourself.
