Live Set Recording // 19.05.11 // Barkollo // Newcastle upon Tyne

Invisible beats, slow strut, and a wonky waltz. Foreshadows, future ghosts, and a night on itself choking… …Artifice and relic, ecclesiastically shuffled.

Archived ranting

I found this quite amusing piece that I wrote about three or so years ago.  There’s lots here that might be fun to clarify in the future, and although I agree with the general sentiment, I feel I’m scapegoating a world that’s easy to scapegoat. I started writing this late-night rant in light of a … Continue reading

New Sqlurque

Reductive Space-dub Strut

Restricted myself to just a few sounds, and tried my hand at remixing Erykah Badu’s On & On from 1997.  The results;

The nature of the underwater ballroom.

As much as I’d love this to have been my own description of my work, or at least how I perceive it and the world it occupies…it isn’t.  Beautiful though.  Current-borne, wave-flung, tugged hugely by the whole might of ocean, the jellyfish drifts in the tidal abyss.  The light shines through it, and the dark … Continue reading

Electric Ark Radio Show 25th March – Deep Bass Therapy

Mannequin Licker’s Electric Ark on Friday 25th March.  It ended up being a sort of tribute to my time at Bloc Weekend this year, and an attempt to carve out a journey from the depths of the deepest deep to interstellar emancipatory otherworlds.  Ride the vibrations. http://www.mixcloud.com/media/swf/player/mixcloudLoader.swf?v=106 Mannequin Licker's Electric Ark 25th March 2011 by … Continue reading

Towards Phantastical Panoramas

The earth seemed unearthly.  We are accustomed to look upon the shackled form of a conquered monster, but there – there you could look at a thing monstrous and free. -Joseph Conrad, Heart Of Darkness (p.51 – Penguin Popular Classics Edition).                       I want to … Continue reading
