Sunday May 11th, 1980, 6:55am

Thanks, once again, to The Intercepted for the Trump skits that preface the start of their podcasts and that we shamelessly recycle in our mixes. This week’s GoodFellas effort is particularly good and had us fondly recalling one of the greatest cinematic depictions of coke paranoia.

If they had been wiseguys, I wouldn’t have heard a thing. I would’ve been dead

The Show: Drum ‘n’ bass madness

True drum and bass overload on The Joint today! It seemed to generate a lot of text messages and phone calls. We’ll have to do it more often since we’ve been awfully slack on the d’n’b front.

Double big thanks to Offset and Hank (aka The Nicol Brothers) for popping in to play a few sets of their favourite d’n’b cuts. Check the playlist below to see the ground they covered – Offset going for the crunchier numbers and Hank going for the mellower melodic tunes. Hearing Hank cut Headspace‘s “Fly Away” in and out of High Contrast’s “Racing Green” was priceless. What’s scary is that Hank is only 14 and would give a lot of DJs a run for their money. We’re a lot, lot older than 14 and can’t even mix one record.

And speaking of Headspace his alter ego Andre Hemer has an exhibition of his paintings on at 64zero3 gallery in Christchurch.
