It’s been too long. In fact, it’s been over a month since I last posted. However as Bright Colour has kindly shared with you our Melt! adventure and articulated it with such beautiful storytelling, there’s not much I can really add. The atmosphere was incredible, the people were friendly, no pushing and shoving through the busy crowds, and the music was absolutely incredible.
With Jamie Woon, Nicholass Jaar, Apparat, Gold Panda, Azari & III and Gui Boratto kicking off our weekend on the friday, I don’t believe I’ll ever be graced with the presence of such a plethora of great music ever again. Even still I hear a faint noise in my head of many people in sync dancing the two step… two step, two step
Blessed with one day of intense heat, we were officially Melt!ing; a compulsory act at the German festival.
If you haven’t read it already, take a look at Bright Colour’s post below, it’s full of lovely description, the language of an english literature student, and some great examples of what we heard during our dreamy weekend in the heart of Germany. I simply provide the photos…. and now… for some music…
I find Alex Winston’s voice a tad irritating, nonetheless, the tracks that have been released seem to always grab my attention, well atleast the remixed versions. Here we see RAC take on ‘Velvet Elvis’ and I have to admit I really like it. I’m always a lover of an RAC remix as you never lose the original song, they normally simply make it better.
Yet somehow I feel like, I shouldn’t like this.
So, Drop Out Orchestra make their debut UK appearance at CUBED in Reading, a night ran by Pete Wheeler and Christopher Wells (Founders of Skint Mondays), on 30th September. I for one, am very excited. I love Drop Out Orchestra, and not only are we to expect them, but also Olugbenga (Metronomy) as well.
CUBED has been going for around 6 months now, after the success of Skint Mondays which has seen the likes of The Twelves, Justin Robertson, Drop The Lime, SBTRKT and Rory Phillips (Just to name a few) and has just celebrated its 3rd birthday. CUBED has welcomed so far, Olugbenga, The Disablists, The Libertines, Amp + Deck and Santero and I know it’s got a few sneaky corkers under its sleeve.
SO enough of all this, listen to Drop Out Orchestra’s new remix of Paul Weller. I like it.
And if you’re around Reading on 30th September, remember to drop in to SUB89.
