Planet Blob Volume 9
February 19, 2018 12:40 AM PST

"Is this gonna be a standup fight, sir, or another bug hunt?"

Don't worry, this isn't a full on Aliens tribute (although fans of the film will probably give a little smile at the intro to this mix) but I'm afraid we're going back to Planet Blob. After a year off floating round the outer rings (and a total of 9 years lost in space) the mix series that no one asked for blasts off again with a fresh batch of sci-fi flavoured nonsense. There's the odd bit of space turbulance as a couple of meteorites collide on one mix (you try doing this in zero gravity) but overall I'm happy and this may well be the most Blob mix out of all the Blobs. We start from Patrick Cowley and end up with Paul McCartney (albeit in his most psychedelic of studio sessions). I hope you enjoy it as much as I did putting it together

Zip up, plot the course co-ordinates and let's go back to Blob.

Best of 2017 End of Year Special
December 10, 2017 10:21 AM PST

Thanks to everyone who supported the show this year. 2017 has been a good un so it's that time again when I take a look back over the past 12 months and pull out some of my favourite cuts that were released this year. Always a headache to squeeze everything into a 3 hour special (I actually went over by 30 mins!) but overall I'm happy with the selection. It's been a grand year looking back with some fantastic old and new productions doing the business. As ever Athens of the North came correct (with not one but 3 entries in this show) as well as Floating Points' Melodies International releasing some top draw gear from yesteryear - records that were long forgotten but now given a new lease of life. My top 3 records of the year of course had to be included (Steve Monite, Wajeed and Amor) and this show could of been a hell of a lot longer but I hope you enjoy it as much as I did in putting it together

Merry Christmas and I'll see you all in the new year

A Jazzanova Tribute - Sunday 29th October 2017
October 30, 2017 02:36 AM PDT

One of my favourite production crews of the last 20 years has been the 6 strong collective out of Berlin called Jazzanova. I've been a big fan ever since I first started stumbling across their twelves in the racks in the late nineties and with the impending visit of Alex Barck to our Soul Buggin' 13th Birthday party here in Nottingham I thought what better time to go digging in the racks and pull out some favourites and put together a bit of a personal tribute. Of course, 3 hours is nowhere near long enough to cover all their work but below are just some of my favourite original productions, remixes and reworks that I've collected over the years. I also asked my fellow Soul Buggers to contribute a favourite record to the proceedings so big shouts to Wrighty, Mark and Elmo for picking some great gear. I hope you enjoy it as much as I did putting it together and I look forward to seeing some of you at our birthday party on Saturday 4th November at The Maze here in Nottingham (for full info check the link below)

Big love

A Brazilian Love Affair Volume 3

This was only supposed to be a one off show a few years ago to celebrate the Olympic games but has now turned into a bit of an annual celebration of all things 'Brazil' so here we go, deep into Volume 3 of my Brazilian Love Affair series. Taking in original productions, reworks, re-edits, influences and inspirations from across the decades we hop, skip and jump across the tempos for two hours of wonderful music that either originates from Brazil or at the very least, is heavily influenced by that wonderful South American country.

House Up My Strada Volume 9
April 01, 2017 08:13 AM PDT
itunes pic

It's landed, just in time for the new series of Masterchef - my yearly housed up mixtape that no one asked for. Clocking in at only 70 odd minutes it's cooked up short and sweet this year, ideal for those with a slight dose of the old ADHD

The old rubs shoulders with the new as this years mix takes in tracks from producers as far a field as the Ukraine, USA, UK, Australia and Germany so there's plenty to get your teeth into. Fits nicely onto a CD for the old school burners or equally one and a bit sides of a vintage C90 for those that wanna get all hipster with their walkmans

Enjoy my lovelies!

A Ray Mang Tribute Show
February 05, 2017 08:46 AM PST
itunes pic

The sounds of Ray Mang (or Raj Gupta as he's known to his mates) have featured quite heavily on the Noodle Hotpot show playlists over the years. Whether it be his solo work via his own Mangled label, his sterling remix output for others or in the form of his collaborative efforts such as Block 16 or wayward disco adventures with those pesky Idjut Boys, his records have always found their way onto my turntables.

With his imminent visit to our Soul Buggin’ party on Saturday 4th March at The Lofthouse here in Nottingham I thought what better time to go digging in the racks and pull out some of my favourite Ray Mang productions, remixes and edits. There was loads more I wanted to squeeze in but unfortunately we ran out of time but I hope you like what made it in as it was a lot of fun to put together (bar the odd traincrash mix!)
