Colnago Road V 2.0November 22nd, 2012

When the first Colnago you buy doesn’t fit, you get a track version that does fit. Years later, you find another road bike (also in Rabobank team colors) that does fit.

Check out the post about it on Gage + DeSoto.

Celebrating Deep BlueSeptember 10th, 2012

It can be argued that DJ Clever is Deep Blue’s biggest fan. When Sean agreed to do a 12″ for Offshore Recordings back in 2002, Brett was over the moon. The two have kept tabs on each other since and subsequent Deep Blue tracks have appeared on Offshore. With the relaunch Offshore Recordings, Brett immediately went to Sean for music. Luckily, Deep Blue came out of retirement to remix Orange Line by Daat. To celebrate the remix and the imminent release of another piece of vinyl bearing the Deep Blue mark, DJ Clever put together this tribute mix. The current version is re-recorded since the original version in May. The tracklist has been slightly altered.

Listen to the mix.

RepetitionJuly 26th, 2012

If I’m not posting about skateboards, then I’m posting about sneakers, Oakley’s, music OR, you guessed it, cycling jerseys.

So, why would this post be any different. Check out the latest cycling jersey offering from Offshore Recordings.

Only a few in existence, but available to purchase in sizes Medium and Large. Send me a note if you’re interested in one.

Enter Offshore and OrganicJanuary 24th, 2012

The rumors are true, there will be a collaboration series between Offshore (which has been on a bit of a hiatus) and UK based Organic. Various other websites, including Organic and Knowledge already let the cat out of the bag, so I’m just going to link the audio with few words.

The A-Side comes in the form of Fracture & Neptune going back in on a track they did for Offshore a few years back, “Ups & Downs.” They emerge with the 2012 VIP, which falls directly in line with recent output on their label, Astrophonica.

OSRORG001A – Fracture & Neptune – “Ups & Downs VIP” by Organic

The B-Side also encompasses Mr. Fracture, but this time paired up with Qualified as Compound One to remix one of the most notable tracks from the Offshore back catalog, “I Am Metal.” Produced by Graphic, it features the vocal talents of Beans from Anti Pop Consortium. Compound One bring a bionic, pulsing remix fit for a late 90’s Headz session at Blue Note.

Stay tuned for more promotional materials surfacing before the February 20th release date!

I’ve finally gotten around to recording a new Drum & Bass mix. It’s mainly the tunes I played a few weeks back at Alteration, so if you missed that relive it here and now. I mixed it in one take with both vinyl and CD (no mystery which tracks are from which source), so please pardon any slips.
