NYE!


Welcome, astral ravers, to the return to the the C3 of the Zodiac project. After last year's throwdown, in essence the birth of the Zodiac series, it was impossible to resist another gathering at the CCCB's charming C3 bar, who have this year granted us an extended timeframe to ensure every single party person in the place to be has the possibility to lose themselves in the style of this month's sponsor, Capricorn.

We have a stellar collection of spinners ready to lay it down from the grapes til the early morn. weird grooves and unsettling sounds will be provided by Sonic Reducer aka Arnau Sabate, the brain behind A Viva Veu. Slick Dixxx and Taser T make up a new syndicate specialising in soundtracks to any self-respecting illegal activity, and it goes by the name of C.R.I.M.E. DJ G and Fabian Roelandt will keep things rolling with a pristine selection of inter-generic club joints, while we are delighted to welcome back Ari Up to destroy the area round after round of dancefloor missiles. Special guesting on the bill will be Swedish tag-team Bella Boo & Ominous K, bringing the ultimate there could be in futuristic beats.

Tickets are still going for 10 euros in advance, exclusively from Discos Paradiso: hurry that ass up though, they sold out last time around. Those getting in before one will enjoy a reduced price of 12 euros, and my fashionably-late team best have 15 euros ready to pay our charming public relations team.

So. the location is central, the bar prices reasonable, the selectors on top of their games, the system banging, and the company charming. Join us for the latest rising of Zodiac.

Let's Disco


This Thursday I'm sneaking in through the back door to a spot I have yet to grace ni as DJ nor as guest: Marula.

It's a town-centre jump-off, I'm on at one and the place is supposed to be an authentic glitz-trip so anyone into raw live disco thuds and funk sections rounded off by a little roots of chicha best get theyself down.

Hallowe'en Misery & Confusion



Hi fiends,

Here's a mixtape that only people who are literally right on the edge of good/evil/don't know; played to those of weak constitution it may push you into the next category.

If I'm not impaled, I will be spinning this brand of audio molestation at Sameheads in Berlin this Sunday whilst people eat fried food, possibly of human origin.

It's going to be foul, don't come.

Zodiac's Back


Making tentative steps back into the field of party-throwing, here's the one-time World's Most Famous Virgin sitting atop a flyer for this weekend's most unmissable masked-disco party in Poblenou.

Some blurb I half wrote:

"An intimate event dedicated to the most virtuous of cumpleanyeros, Masked Ballers Burn Baby Burn combine with Astral Amblers Zodiac to present VIRGO.

"So innocent are our hosts that they insist all identities at the event remain hidden behind masks as the select certain someones gather to rejoice at the turning of another constellation.

"Providing sounds of playful variety and surprising depth will be SUNNY GRAVES, known on occasion as JAHBITAT, SLICK DIXXX, and DJ ROGER C.

"The venue is a precious corner of Poblenou, so far ignored by the socialites, whose cosy bar and dancefloor is uninfringed by curtain-twitching neighbour types.
"Both timetable and guest list are strictly limited, so make sure your 4 euro advance payment is made in good time to one of the event's 'administrators' and that you are there plenty early."


Making use of all the disco I picked up in England's cheap and pleasant charity shops, here's a special mix one time for your mind:

Cop This




Alex James might be a Tory twat but his ex (?) bandmate Damon Albarn doesn't seem to spend his free time swanning around with prize shitehawks such as Jeremy Clarkson & David Cameron.

No, the ex (?) lead singer of Blur has gathered together a top selection of electronic producers to contribute to this compilation described below.

"Kinshasa One Two was recorded in Kinshasa, Democratic Republic of Congo over 5 days this past July. DRC Music (a collective of producers gathered by Damon Albarn) set out to make an album with contemporary Congolese musicians and worked with more than 50 local performers including Jupiter and the Okwess InternationalBokatola System and Nelly LiyemgeDRC Music is comprised of producers: T-E-E-D (Totally Enormous Extinct Dinosaurs)Dan The AutomatorJneiro JarelRichard RussellActress,Marc AntoineAlwestRemi KabakaRodaidh McDonald and Kwes, with album artwork by Aitor Throup and Hardy Blechman. The Democratic Republic of Congo has long been wracked by conflict and is home to one of the world's worst humanitarian crises. Proceeds from the album will benefit the local performers and Oxfam's work in Congo."

"We feel incredibly fortunate to be involved in the journey that culminated in Kinshasa One Two. It's completely, brilliantly, unlike anything Warp has undertaken before, but nonetheless feels like a very natural endeavour for us to be a part of. We're supremely grateful to all the artists, musicians and producers who joined together to create this amazing record and shared a vision of contributing in some small way to benefit the people of the DRC."

This Train Keeps Rollin'


Hola bretheren,

Those summer months whizzed by, right?  Wrong!  Inna Barna it is still so hot that we've got the oven on full blast just to cool down.  To make matters even worse, I <3 Dubstep is back with me and my teaming fully on board, brutalising the brand new Funkion 1 soundsystem in the Rex at Razzmatazz.

As per, you can expect enormous sounds in the main room downstairs too, with apocalyptic sets from Iberian Bass Warriors Benvinda, Wasabii, La Crema and Barbarians, with Stormy's vocals to punctuate proceedings.

The shit is free with a flyer, or even an image thereof on one's mobile, til 1.30.  There'll be a queue so get in early cos I'm not picking up the phone once I'm in fiesta mode.

108 Is Great


How can anyone not like this feminine force of nature?  She's half Catalan you know.  Here's what her latest single would sound like without that oaf Pitbull on it, slowed down in the Moombahpop style.  Baila.

Zodiac K.I.M. in the Tropic of Cancer


It gets hottt.  The only way to celebrate the coming of the weekend is under the stars, by the water, even better if it's a celebratory time of year for a special few folk.

Yessum, if you're down with Cancer Kings & Queens Rigo Pex, The Barna Flea Market's Natu Perez or  The Art Game's Miss Van, then come and wig out with us at the usual spot on top of town.

As always, we have the zenith of autochthonous talent behind the music, namely The Itchy N Scratchy Show, Meneo, Slick D and a first Zodiac appearance for Ferran Capo.

The sound and dress policy is hard tropical, those enhancing the ambience in this way will be rewarded with booty and spices the likes of which have never before been regaled with such abandon.

Sunday morning you will have the likes of this selection ringing in your ears as you be sipping your Bloody Maria to get over your hangover:

Producer: No I.D



Producer No I.D. makes another massive beat here. Not to forget he aka the godfather of Chicago hiphop. He made resurrection that put Common on the map back in the days and introduced Kanye West to hiphop. The list of tracks he made is inmense, he worked with Dug infinite, Alicia Keys n Jay Z to mention some. From great jazzinfluenced boombap to new stuff like this here track by Big Sean.


Fate or Destiny (Instrumental)


You're wrong (instrumental)

Check this classic video. I can't say I like common nowadays though...too much rnb.

La Morcilla II


My new summer bass experience has come flying out for the possible enjoyment of millions.  Yep, I return with my Finnish crew-brother DJ Matooke to bring you ‘La Morcilla II’, which has been about six months in the making and is about a good a mixtape as you could envision hearing, if you like exactly the same music as we do.
Along with another crew-brother, the Canadian Michael Swaney, we have made 50 hard copies with individually illustrated covers, for close personal amigxs, true believers and one competition winner in Shrewsbury.
For those interested in a non-tactile version, peep the wave-form below.
The tracklist, btw, will remain a closely guarded secret.

We Go Hard To France


We went hard to France this weekend.

Invited by our France frères Je Déteste La Musique, we decided to take the scenic route with a car and a couple of tents, camping in Montpellier along the way.

The night itself was the last one the crew will hold at the impressive MC2 venue in Grenoble, and over the few years they've been holding nights there they have invited a fair few heavyweights to the Alpine town, and built up quite a following who go bananas from 1am til the night is over, and that is no exaggeration. 

Merci bien a vous.

A few flicks of our adventure:

Zodiac & Jackmode Off-Sonar Gemini Throwdown


In the absence of a PDJ gig this year, allow myself to invite yourselves to the #1 Thursday Get-Down for my Off-Sonar teaming.

While the Barcelona prepares itself for a weekend of advanced music and city-wide events, Zodiac returns to its home on Montjuïc for the first pool party of the summer and an amazing line-up of artists to rival any stage you could be at over the Sonar period.

We are delighted to be able to announce our hook-up with Berlin-based house agency Jackmode, who have put together an international cast of dancefloor masters to kick off proceedings at the festival.

Fans of the new directions of house music will salivate at the thought of the team we will be presenting on the Thursday night that for the past few years has played host to a number of quality off-Sonar events.

So, without any more beating around bushes, we have a very special Made To Play guest around, joint by Zombie Disco Squad, Oliver $ (Made To Play), Sasse (Mood Music), Chopstick & Johnjon (Suol), Penner + Muder (Wazi Wazi), J.Phlip (dirtybird) and Slick D. (Plat Du Jour).

The venue itself is totally unique. Just a ten-minute walk from Plaça Espanya leads you to an isolated country club, whose swimming-pool area and bar we commandeer for the purposes of an astrally-inspired throwdown.

In promoting the event electronically, we have been able to keep costs down, so we're proud to announce that tickets cost just 5€ in advance, available at Discos Paradiso, a minute from the Sonar Day venue, or from Resident Advisor who got the early bird tickets 5€.  The door will take 10€ off your hands.

The artwork for this event blessed by the sign of Gemini has been used with the kind permission of Kid Acne.


Here's a little something I put together to prick up ears.

Who said I was all washed up?

Thursday night you can find me shoulder-to-shoulder with a whole bunch of sub-continental sub-bass brothers at Razz for the first time.  I am, frankly, chuffed.  Razz was the first club I ever went to in Barcelona, and to be invited to play is boss.  The night is called Disaster, and the line-up is the following: Pig Fans will be familiar with the ever effervescent Itchy & Scratchy, who celebrate their 2nd anniversary this month, and true Pig Fans may have caught Tropical Terror at mine & Chino's birthday jump-off in March.

  FUCKSTEP Minimix by TROPICAL TERROR

Headlining the night we have some genuine out-of-towners, hailing from Latin America, the Frikistailers rock tightly squeezed holiday dance remixes & productions, and plus have the stage show to match their exotic sounds.  Their latest EP:

  Bicho de Luz EP by FRIKSTAILERS

It's not the weekend yet but you can pretend it is by coming to the club and getting ratted without a thought for Friday.  Such behaviour can only be encouraged by the fact that you can come for free before 01.30 if you stick your name down on this here wall.  Plus you can plus a plus one too.  What more can I say?
