RETROSPECT

hey ho ho ho ho... the lights are up, the cold has kicked in and oxford street has turned into babylon. It's definitely December. The ANNIE MAC PRESENTS tour is nearly over, it's been a fantastic time and I was quite sad driving back from Middlesborough Empire at 7am on Saturday morning..mind you, that could have been sleep deprivation and hangover.

The tour has seen all sorts of DJs rock the clubs... from Erol Alkan to Pendulum to Justice to Yoda to Sinden to Mylo to Switch to Klaxons to Simian Mobile Disco to High Contrast to Optimo to Andy C ..it's been amazing to watch some seriously talented people. I've discovered some amazing music along the way as well... biggest tracks for me during the tour are as follows.

Nicky Van She & Dangerous Dan - Around The World Again (Bang Gang)
Beatles Vs Diplo - Shhhake It All Over (White)
Klein - Bunnylake (Christopher Just's Disco Demon's Dub) (Klein)
Robbie Williams - Lovelight (Soulwax Ravelight Remix)
Klaxons - Makick (Simian Mobile Disco mix)
Richard Dinsdale - Sniffin' (White Label)
Herbert - Movin Like A Train (Smith And Hack Remix)
Justin Martin - The Fugitive - Buzzin Fly
Pablo Ingles & Mr. Zim - Peanut Butter Jelly Time
Louie Austen - Disco Dancer (Christopher Just Remix)
The Rapture - W.A.Y.U - (Simian Mobile Disco Mix)

Let me know if I left any out. The last date in 2006 is on December 15th at Fabric in Room 3. On New Years Eve I'm in Birmingham and Manchester..

There's so much good music around at the moment..I've got a great feeling about next year. Just think, full length albums from Justice, LCD Soundsystem and Simian Mobile Disco! Timbaland is in the middle of producing Bjorks new album..can't wait to hear that as well as new music from Mylo and Stuart Price as well..

Current favourite tunes are..

Eyerer And Chopstick - Haunting (Christoper Just Mix) (IO Music)
Mason - Bermuda Triangle (White)
World Domination - Galactic Lover (Kitsune Maison)
Shychild - Drop The Phone (PIAS)
Subfocus - Special Needs (White)
The Rapture - W.A.Y.U (Claude Von Stroke Mix)

My New Years Resolutions are..

start making music
play more D&B gigs

what are yours?

    NYR's??? By the sounds of it the same as yours....

    Been battering the overtime to get the coin for an Apple Mac and Logic (I haven't got a clue where to start or what to do with it like, will have to figure it out!).

    Would also like to take some piano/keyboard lessons so I can learn to play some meoldys and get on with it.

    Can't wait to hear that Timbo produced Bjork album! Deffo on the New Years music list.

    Annie....I notice you've been digging in the crates a bit lately which is great to hear. Is there any chance you could play a classic funkadelic-eaque track by Zapp called 'It doesn't really matter'. It's a beast!

    Cheers.

    New Years Resolutions,

    Interview more bands, my new favourite hobby.

    Remember my camera when I go to gigs.

    Review more albums.

    Try to get Hot Chip's "Over And Over" out of my head.

    Hi Annie!

    Just like you, can't wait for the SMD album, and for Bjork to get back to the "real beats" business!

    My NYR is to go out more! Kinda hard with the studies and all...

    My insane track of the moment (and for this year's holidays):
    Steve Smooth & JJ Flores - Deep inside these walls (Menage records).
    Bangin' rock house!
    Can't get it out of my head!!!
    It's on Beatport.

    Keep up the good work and the slammin' tunes!
    Happy Holidayzzzz from Montreal, Canada!!!
    (Are you coming to see us soon? Pleaaaaaaaaase...)

    Hey hey, just been listening to the Annie Mac Mix of the year by DJ Yoda, and I thought I'd have to post something here...

    Whatever you do this year Annie, find DJ Jaguar Skills - I've just heard an 800 track mix that covers hip-hop from 1979-2006. If you're interested, take a listen here...

    http://www.zshare.net/audio/1979-2006_-a-hip-hop-odyssey-800 -tracks-in-a-48-minute-mix-mp3.html

    Enjoy!
