Aurally dazzling rework of the Cocteau Twins from Star Slinger
...only four more sleeps 'til the main main comes to town. If you have been good and your name did not appear in any negative context in the Wikileaksgate Affair then here's an early present for you courtesy of Alex Winston & Tomb Crew, whose Xmas appeal cannot be understated.

Today I have been assembling my team to take on New Year's Eve: a group of performers straight from the belly of Barcelona to entertain the masses who come CCCB way after they done finished they grapes.
Pig fans will need no introduction to the Meneo machine, and only those witnessing on the night will truly witness what this prince of parties & private parts has in store. Joining me at the helm as we collide with the early-mid-20-teens will be indie upstarts The Goons from A Viva Veu, and for that feminine feel we welcome Ari Up, whose residency at Crocanti (RIP) knew no boundaries of style or amusement.
Tickets go on sale at Discos Paradiso this week. Don't sleep!
On a cold ass day where it's colder in than out, your boys from Narwhal come with this mixtape of imaginative beats and tight production, get it while it's warm.

Here's a peach that found its way into the podcast basket this morning from those lovable rogues at Numbers.
A haunting and soulful slice of pensive dubstep by Jamie Woon with Deadboy on the rework.
Straight out of Finland via the wilds of Stockholm comes 'Winter Duppy' from the man like DJ Matooke, with whom I collaborated on 'La Morcilla' earlier this year.
Featuring an exhaustive list of ragga tracks culminating in some junglist mayhem, this is certain to steam up your mulled wine shindigs this weekend.

It's no secret I'm partial to the odd cat. Fortunately, I'm not partial to that much cat in song, or mixtape for that matter, but the man like Nathan in Berlin has put me up on this choice Christmas mixtape for the 2010 until infinity.

Good things about techno:
- It feels like you're in space
- It feels like your're in space in the future
- It's gender nonspecific
- You presumably don't have to worry about clearing samples
Bad things about techno:
- Your heroes could be asked to appear in photoshoots which could remind the casual onlooker of Limahl who sang the theme to 'The Never Ending Story'
I dug the first Booka Shade album, and here's a bass-heavy remix of a newish track of theirs for your downloading pleasure.
Thanks to all the massive inna Moog on Tuesday night, and an extra-especial lifetime's large-ups to the lad who tackled the shitehawk on the Ramblas who tried to make off with our wages.

Yo all. The temperature has recovered just in time for the start of the Booty Farra Tour which has its big ass opening night tonight at Moog, and reaches its thrilling conclusion on Friday night at MC2 in Grenoble, France, subject to us getting there.
On the tour will be me myself Slick Dixxx aka Marky D, spinning hot fat on the jigger-jigger, with live shows from Fitzroy North and Suckafish P Jones.
Here's a promo mix which I slammed together just in time for you to sing in the mirror to with your hairbrushes and whathaveyou.
Say you'll be there.
