The Show: I’m a prisoner. I’m a copier. I’m a repeater. I’m a follower.

Always fun to find a tenuous reason to stick a Martin Creed video in the blog.

Well, not that tenuous really. A Martin Creed triple play features in the middle of the show today and is bookended by our signature selection of atmospheric beats, off-kilter house, washing machine techno and fragile ballads.

Damn. Forgot to somehow insert The Woodsman (from Twin Peaks) into the show. Oh well. That can keep for next week.

Black Estate Sessions Volume 2

We’re taking a break this weekend which means no show on RDU today.

Just in case you were desperate for a hit of The Joint here’s a recording of the live set we played at Black Estate’sDumpling, Wine & Records” night last month.

The audio quality is a little scratchy in places. As the evening wore on the faders were pushed higher and the needle was bouncing in the red. You know how noisy and raucous these vineyard events can get, especially when you break out the Wham vinyl.

And here’s the playlist in full…

Black Estate Sessions Volume 1

black-estate-playlist-20150418The Joint likes to dream of DJ’ing with the greats at crucial moments in pop history. Larry Levan in 70’s NYC. Don Letts‘ punky reggae party at The Roxy. DJ Alfredo at Amnesia on Ibiza in the late eighties.

But at our age when we play out it’s not exactly 20,000 people mashed up in field. More like several dozen punters dining at a vineyard. Less “Sorted For E’s & Whizz“. More “Little Old Wine Drinker Me“. Which is exactly why we were invited to play records at the Black Estate Tasting Room & Eatery last Saturday afternoon.

Many thanks to all for making us feel very welcome and a special mention to Waipara DJ Sylvia for helping out. When we ran out of vinyl after 4 hours she filled in with her Lorde LP. Unfortunately we’d stopped recording the set at this point so it was very much a case of you had to be there. Which means in future years, just like with Levan, Letts and Alfredo, thousands will claim they were.

The Joint. Keeping it real(ly mellow).
