April 13, 2009


I think I just needed a week where I could come home from my shirt-and-tie job and not feel obligated to jump immediately onto something else.  Sometimes, if your roommate is lounging on the couch and asks if you got the next Buffy the Vampire Slayer DVD in the mail, you want to say “Hell motherfucking yeah” and commence in some chillage without the slightest tinge of guilt or anxiety.  (You see, Sliu, I do write about you on here.)  And it’s never a good sign when the fact that my turntables sit atop something that West Elm markets as a desk starts feeling deeply ironic.

But as this hands-off-my-decks week draws to a close, I feel refreshed.  Techno might be slightly more than a hobby for me, but sifting through Hard Wax’s RSS feed and pumping bass in my bedroom every evening (and in the clubs when I’m lucky) isn’t exactly a miserable existence.  Perspective is everything, and making my Technics sleep on the couch for awhile got me some.

(Listening to Stimming’s fantastic new album Reflections helped a good deal as well.  Yes, that is a seeerious recommend right there.)

Luckily, I’ve been given the chance to jump right back into the swing of things.  This Monday night (as in tomorrow), MO/RDAN will be taking to WNYU’s hallowed studios for a special set on Bentwave.  Expect a whole lot of new 4/4, as per Bentwave’s mandate, as well as some classic sounds and fast tempos, as per MO/RDAN’s mandate.  If you’ve been reading this blog, you probably know the drill: 89.1 FM in NYC, everywhere else, 10:30-1AM eastern time.

Lastly, Full Service will be taking April off in preparation for RAEV X — you got that right, we’re on our TENTH FUCKING PARTY — on Saturday, May 23.  Watch this space for more details, but be forewarned: you will be having a profoundly sleepless night in about six weeks, and it will be all my fault.
