The Show: The Shipping Forecast.

The BBC Radio 4 Shipping Forecast. ASMR before ASMR even existed. Short cryptic predictions for little-known geographical locations (South Utsire anyone?), snippets of the Forecast are sprinkled throughout today’s show.

If these excerpts do give you that ASMR “low grade euphoria” help yourself to 5 hour or even 9 hour YouTube compilations.

Personal favourite from this playlist is “The Flood” by Haiku Salut, part of their reimagined soundtrack to the 1926 Buster Keaton film “The General”. So feel free to spend the rest of your week trying to sync up the entire score on Spotify with a totally legit free stream of the movie*.

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.
