It was 10 years ago yesterday

A trawl through The Joint audio vaults has uncovered a set of previously unpodcasted shows from 10 years ago.

So for your nostalgic listening pleasure we present the first two hours of a programme that went to air on the 27th January 2007.

Lots and lots and lots of Ed Banger material.

The holidays have been a good time to catch up on the overlooked releases of 2016 as well as enjoy the first fruits of 2017. Even then we could only squeeze in a small selection.

Today we’ve got the dark beats from the likes of MIXHELL (see video above for a 2017 remix of a late 2016 track), Tolouse Low Trax, Marie Davidson, Dread Monochrome, ‘duets’ from Islet and The xx, beautiful noise from The Trendees and MANNEQUIN PUSSY.

We also finally catch up with local hip hop label SEASIDE’s back catalogue. Have a listen to them on Bandcamp or hit the buttons below.


So yeah, just a taste of what’s on the show today.

Blow out the candles and make a wish while you can

Goodbye to The Year of the Monkey. Hello to The Year of the Rooster. And to be honest… good riddance to 2016. At least we had the likes of NO BRA aka Susanne Oberbeck able to make an off-kilter year even more off-kilterer.

Into 2017 we go. Things stay thankfully, mercifully, and healthily even more off-kilterer with Mary Ocher.
