more brick work

With the head hitting the pillow sometime after 2am on both Monday (after the usual set at Thirst) and Tuesday (after playing a black tie gig at a college followed by far too much champagne, vodka, and despairing discussion at the current and future state of the ALP), playing for an hour last night down at the Brickworks I was very much in the mood for keeping it low and slow:

Hightower Set – Putting Heads to Bed (Blue Note)
Okuyama Minako - Like A Flower (Flower Records)
Bionics – Intelligent Jazz (Jimpster’s Jazz Mix) (Compost Records)
Jazztronik – The Piano (Flower Records)
Cold Cut – Onamission (Ninja Tune)
Monday Michiru – Fading Beauty (Chillin’ Winter Mix) (Kitty)
Chingy – Right Thurr (Capitol Records)
DJ Food – Dark Lady (Ninja Tune)
Jet Set Productions – Go Forward (Flower Records)
Mark De Clive-Lowe - Smile In Your Eyes (Arision Recordings)
Jazztronik – Brisa (At Jazz Remix) (Flower Records)
Plantlife – When She Smiles She Lights The Sky (4Hero Remix)
Quincy Jones – Along Came Mister Nobody (Concord Records)
Hajime Yoshizawa – Rise Me Up (Especial Records)
Emo – First Time Experience (Povo Mix) (Subterranean)

Yes, that’s not a typo, that is Chingy in the middle there, but I want to you imagine it made thoroughly respectable by an impromptu mash with the bassline from DJ Food’s Dark Lady (also appropriated famously for Bomb The Bass’s Bug Powder Dust).

The Brickworks is a relaxed atmosphere and cosy capacity, and both times I've played there now I've had people dropping me email addresses to get set lists and find out when I'm playing again. So no surprise that on the back of the two guest appearances I’ve made with the Peepshow over the last month I’ve got another regular night lined up, and will be hosting the monthly first-Tuesday there. It seems in this place one must be proper and fill in one's dance card in from the front on the week...
