DJ S1FTER presents Goody Gumdrops

Direct download: The Joint – 26 November 2016

DJ S1FTER fills in, putting the garage back into garage, and maybe even putting a porch on the Porsche. This time he goes MkII Zephyr style and adds a few Kiwi artists –  Scribe, P Money, and a funky Poi E remix. The Jag also gets some attention with tracks from English gangster movie Snatch (“I’ve seen Snatch… and I like it”- DJ S1FTER) bookending the mix with some good R’n’B and Blues Brothers thrown in to keep it worldly. As usual there is a fine selection of house with WaFF, Marlon Hoffstadt & Dansson, and Sideburn & Viktor Kaman. And S1FTER kinda apologises for the Hall & Oates… kinda.

Here’s the playlist in full…

  • Klint – Diamond
  • Patea Maori Club – Poi E (The Beatworms remix)
  • Scribe – Not Many

The Show: Right-winging, bitter-clinging, proud clingers

OMG. Coco Solid and Disasteradio stole Ladyhawke’s convertible and went on an electropop bender!!!

It’s funny. When we meet our listeners in person the dreaded “How do you prepare for the show?” question* usually arises. In the interests of transparency this Emmanuelle video is a pretty accurate representation of our pre-show rituals…

* It’s not really a dreaded question.
