The Talented Dave Graham has dropped a little sample of his latest work. Let’s allow him to tell the story: “This is an excerpt from a new track – a very long track!,” he said. “I’ve put up seven or so minutes here, but the whole song is waaaay longer. This part is neither the beginning nor the end!
“The album it is from is dealing with a persons place in history. We are all descended from chains of living creatures stretching back millions of years. What does it mean to be part of that chain? Does it make us a vital link or a spare part? Who were the people and animals in our chain? What lurks in our deep memory? What did our ancient predecessors make of life? How did our chain survive? How come we are so closely linked yet feel so disconnected?
In some strange way we must, deep down, know where we can from…and what we are.
We gotta spread good love for our 64:5 DJ Mr Killer Tomato. He made it to the final of the Red Bull sponsored 3 style DJ championship… Here’s the wordage from his blog: “Competitions are always a battle of nerves. Having competed in DMC many times I was used to the pre stage nerves, but had to remind my self not to get too excited. I find keeping a cool head and strong focus helps going into competitive situations. I always try not to pay too much attention to the competition just focus on the set.
“I was drawn 6th out of the 8 DJs competing, after Astrosnooze, which was nice as we where on stage together, plus the Cardiff crowd where hyped and ready. I was really pleased with my set, I pulled off all the technical aspects, the mixes was tight and the crowd responded to the introduction and ending well. I really thought the title was in the bag, but got beaten by Santero.
So, he wraps it all by saying: “Overall it was a fun night I was pleased with my performance and more than happy with the crowd response. It was great to meet Kissy Sell Out and A Trak, as well as Sinden and TY.
