Alternative Bring’n’Buy Sale – November 2011

My last planned DJ set of 2011, back in the familiar surroundings of the upstairs room at the Tufnell Park dome, soundtracking this most unique and independent form of retain therapy. My co-DJs today were Kat Orphanides (playing metal and punk) and Ash (pretty much everything else). As a specialist in daytime dark-scene DJing, I once again dreamed up a new approach for the early slot, whilst deciding to focus on good old-fashion goth later on.

10:30am-12noon

Due to a need to lend a hand setting up the whole event, I purposely opened with a 23-minute long track, followed by touches of Project-label goodness, martial drumming and then onto something a bit more, erm, gothy?

Klaus Schulze – Synphära
Eno + Fripp – Wind On Water
LoveLiesCrushing – Valerian (Her Voice Honeyed)
Soul Whirling Somewhere – Wish
