COMFY :: Ross From Friends - John Cage

Ross From Friends - John Cage
Ross From Friends - John Cage
Ross From Friends, is the pseudonym for British producer Felix Clary Weatherall. Recently, he was signed to Flying Lotus' label Brainfeeder.

The song “originally began life as a tune for this goofy hip-hop project that me and my pal Guy from back home always do when he’s in London,” Weatherall explains. “I’d be making the beat and he raps. It’s always a refreshing approach making tracks in that atmosphere because we’re both always on such a spontaneous tip. When I’m making music alone, I’m obsessive and everything takes hours, whereas with Guy, we’d try and get as many tracks finished as possible in like a few hours.”

This song is incredibly groovy and downtempo. If you don't know who John Cage is, look him up on Wikipedia. We can keep some air of mystery to this.

Felix has a new EP called Aphelion coming out next month. - No Boats


CHARIOTS OF WIRE :: Carts of Darkness (movie review)

Carts of Darkness
Carts of Darkness
The 2008 Canadian documentary Carts of Darkness, is a story about those on the fringes of society. In North Vancouver, there are those homeless that collect cans and bottles in their shopping carts to sell for money. This enables the typical past time of drinking. Yet, there is another even more dangerous and possibly detrimental past time - shopping cart downhill. Basically, hauling ass downhill with only a shopping cart between you and some major road rash.

If you aren't familiar with the terrain, North Vancouver is jutted up next to a steep mountain. The downhill is very serious, and some of these racers have reached speeds up to 70 km/hr or 44 m/hr, with only their shoes as a break.

Some of them don't want to live by societies rules. Some of them can't. I believe it's a healthy point of view to see on occasion. They allow director Murray Siple into that world.

Carts of Darkness can be viewed in full on Youtube. Check it out embedded below.

RIGHT IN THE FEELS :: Guts - Dirty Otter

Guts - Dirty Otter
Today's find comes from my buddy Weston. Guts is Paris DJ who got his start in 1990 with the creation of a band, the Alliance Ethnik. Guts music has always had hip hop and electronic sensiblities. He can skirt the line when it comes to the irreverent too. Dirty Otter is a straightforward throwback jam, synth heavy and nostalgiac.

Not going to lie, today has been an exceptional day. Let's keep the ball rolling with some excellent tunage from Cosmo's Midnight. Cosmo's Midnight hail from Sydney, Australia and the Ozzies are twins. Cosmo and Patrick Liney have been making music for half a decade now. Like some other Ozzies, they are doing it right - must be something in the water there or all that sun. Get To Know features Winston Surfshirt on flow and is just a really good feelgood song.
