The In-Tray #2 (2022-11-10)

Posted on Wednesday, February 8th, 2023 by erickleptone

Back again with episode 2 of “The In-Tray”, which, if you don’t already know, is a radio show / podcast-style hour of some cracking new & recent releases, plenty of which don’t really fit into any of the DJ mixes we’re doing, but we still wanted to give them a big-up and bring them to your attention.

Any feedback as always is welcomed, and if you have any new tunes for the In-Tray, just give us a shout, that’s what it’s there for.

Hope you enjoy!

The Golden Hour #1 (2022-10-27)

Posted on Tuesday, February 7th, 2023 by erickleptone

This is the first episode of “The Golden Hour”, a one-hour (see what we did there?) DJ mix that will accompany each episode of “The In-Tray”.

Following on from the style of the Lockdown Radio mixes, each one will be a random deep dive into different sections of the DJ box, the first one taking in some slinky psychedelic rock, new turkish funk, a few obscure crate digs and a very spontaneous slice of live mashing between two legends. And then some!

We thought splitting the show in two would be useful, so folks can enjoy a fresh “chat-free” mix if they’re not in the mood for my dulcet tones.

We’re hoping to be doing one “pair” of these every few weeks, but we’ll see how it goes… if you have suggestions of new tunes for the In-Tray, send ’em in, that’s what it’s there for.

As always, hope you enjoy!

The In-Tray #1 (2022-10-27)

Posted on Saturday, December 17th, 2022 by erickleptone

We’re delighted to be announcing the start of not one, but two new experimental series (Well, everything’s an experiment round here, innit?).

First up we have “The In-Tray”, which is a radio show / podcast-style hour of new & recent releases, plenty of which don’t really fit into any of the DJ mixes we’re doing, but we still wanted to give them a big-up and bring them to your attention.

(Note that this is the first time my “announcer voice” has been heard in public since I stopped doing the “Look-In” show on Brighton radio back in 2008, so please be gentle with me!)

And for a change we’re doing tracklists, with shop-links when we can find them, as we actively want you to be checking out these fine artistes!

We’re hoping to be doing one “pair” of these every couple of weeks, but we’ll see how it goes… Any feedback as always is welcomed, and if you have suggestions of new tunes for the In-Tray, just give us a shout, that’s what it’s there for.

Hope you enjoy!

Glastonbury 2022 Cornish Arms (DJ Set 3 – Saturday 8pm)

Posted on Friday, December 16th, 2022 by erickleptone


Last DJ set of three from Glastonbury 2022 – Pretty much everyone had bogged off to see Paul McCartney, and the tent schedule had got screwed up (sorry about that!), so we got stuck into the Proper Job and busted out some jungle classics old ‘n’ new and heavy duty K-stompers for the remainers!

Huge thanks to Chris & Jess and the Cornish crew for having us, and to everyone that popped by for a drink and a boogie!

Glastonbury 2022 Cornish Arms (DJ Set 2 – Friday 12noon)

Second DJ set of three from Glastonbury 2022 – Feeling a little tender after a big night, and we weren’t the only ones, so it was time for some smooth soulful sounds for the early drinkers, which fitted in very well with our Co-Op pain au chocolat and Iced Irish Coffee.

Huge thanks to Chris & Jess and the Cornish crew for having us, and to everyone that popped by for a drink and a boogie!

Glastonbury 2022 Cornish Arms (DJ Set 1 – Thursday 4pm)

Posted on Tuesday, December 6th, 2022 by erickleptone

First DJ set of three from Glastonbury 2022 – Everyone was in a supremely cheerful mood, and the weather was simmering beautifully, so we joined in with a whole raft of solid gold re-edits and remixes, and a sprinkling of K-classics at the end for good measure.

Huge thanks to Chris & Jess and the Cornish crew for having us, and to everyone that popped by for a drink and a boogie!

(Yes we are late adding this to the blog – sorry bout that!)
