That August Day

Cover art for Fringe Player - That August Day

My second official podcast is a tribute to an extraordinary, singular day spent with my wife, family and friends last August. It is also available on the music blog Ultramagnetique here.

The set grows from slow, melodic tech house beginnings to the faster progressive house beats of Carlos Fox and the outstanding tribute to pioneer house DJ Ron Hardy, before closing on a funky techno high with formidable remixes from Paul Nazca and the perpetually excellent French producer Julian Jeweil.

Hope you enjoy it. Let me know your thoughts.

World on A Wire

Fringe Player "World On A Wire" podcast cover art

In anticipation of my imminent second podcast for the hilarious and musically refined Ultramagnetique music blog, I thought I would re-post my first effort here.

This first podcast is a tech house set sprinkled with dialogue samples from the outstanding HBO TV series “The Wire.”

The musical escapade begins with two atmospheric tracks from the magnificent “Berlin Calling” film soundtrack, slowly builds with several funkier productions, takes a reflective turn with “Summer on Mars” and Guy J’s brilliant “Self Love”, soars with melodic, vigorous remixes by the consistently excellent Joris Voorn and Pig & Dan, before finishing with a superb reconstruction of the D.H.S classic “House of God” from techno’s infancy in 1990.

02 – Paul Kalkbrenner – Aaron (Original Mix)
03 – Trentemoller – Miss You (Pascal F.E.O.S. Edit)
