DJ Z-Trip and DJ P’s Uneasy Listening Volume 1 was one of the first mixes I heard that really cemented in my mind that music genres were indeed bullshit, and that even bad music could be enjoyable when played with a good understanding of music and mixing.
The fact this was done analogue, on turnies and a drum machine, is testament to the skills of these two artist, one who has gone on to wide acclaim, and the other who’s vanished into obscurity.
I’m going to be revamping Friday Funkbox in Two O Fourteen!!
The first change you’ll notice is www.fridayfunkbox.com is now live! So no fuffing about with trying to remember which address is which!
Secondly, the podcast is going to be a monthly show, up on itunes and available through mixcloud. I’m working on a calendar to plan the show. I’m no longer going to be lazy, and set some time aside every month to do this properly.
I’m going to be using the FFB twitter feed and facebook to do more than just promote FFB, although it will continue to remain music focused. I’ll start posting about gigs I know about, gigs I’ve been to, and music I’ve heard / purchased.
Thanks for sticking with it, and lets make ‘Fourteen into the year of the Funk!
This month’s episode is Chromaesthesia. It’s a medical term for a form of synesthesia in which nonvisual stimulation results in the experience of colour sensations. Trippy, no?
This week we start off with some lovely Ice T and red wine, move into some colourfully noisy guitars, get our dance on, take too many pills and wind up in a psychedelic spiral.
Colors by Ice T Red Red Wine by UB40 Purple Haze by Jimmy Hendrix Back In Black by AC/DC White Wedding by Billy Idol Bullet the Blue Sky by U2 Into the Black by The Chromatics Fade To Grey by Visage Blue Monday by New Order Just Can’t Get Enough Purple Pills (D12 vs Depech Mode) by DJ Hellraiser Purple and Green by Bliss I Hear Colors (Chromaesthesia) by The Black Angels Paint It, Black by The Rolling Stones Yellow Submarine by The Beatles
Oh, and see the highlighted song above? That’s the winner of the iTunes Voucher!
Congratulations Geri – iTunes Voucher coming your way!
And don’t forget to check out the Spotify Playlist to see which songs didn’t make the cut.
And remember, this podcast is as much yours as it is mine, so if you want to contribute next week, all you have to do add it to the weekly Spotifycollaborative playlist!
You can also reply in the comments of the ‘Theme Post’ which gets posted every Monday! Give me the name of a song you think will suit the theme, and I’ll try and add it in!
Ok, so I’ve made the decision to make Friday Funkbox a monthly endeavour.
There are 18 episodes in total, and that works out to be roughly one episode a month since I started this thing, so it just makes logical sense that weekly is too ambitious for the moment.
I’m going to try and get people more involved in submitting tune suggestions by offering prizes as well. These will most likely be in the form of Spotify and iTunes giftcards, but I hope to offer other prizes as well, so stay tuned for those!
