Review by Gerald Molumby
Saw DJ Shadow, James Lavelle & the Psychonauts as part of The Headz II tour here in Dublin last weekend. Great show, not as abstract as the last time. Mostly all beat heavy hip-hop with a little bit of soul here and there , not one jungle tune though! Psychonauts played first, 4 turntables and some serious mixing & scratching. Then Shadow then Lavelle.
Top tunes that I can remember, among others;
That 'We will Rock you' mix - who does this? Lavelle always seems to spin it.
Bug in the Bassbin - Innerzone Orchestra
The original '3's the magic No.' - Seasame St. honky tonk style!
Oscilator - This is brilliant. Does anyone know who does this tune and is it availible on any compilations?
Some hip-hop tune with the bass line from Talking Heads 'Once in a lifetime' - Again, who does this? Its fab.
Midnight in a perfect world - Shadow (Which he threw into the crowd after playing!)
Meiso - 4hero mix
Some tune by 'Air'- its on that sourcelab 2 comp, sounds kinda easylistenin'.
And loads of other beats that just sorta flowed into 1 dope stream of hip-hop.
Top night except for the couple of spoons who decided to have a fight at the end of the night and managed to soak me with my own Guinness!
