The Build Up

'Your Irregular Radio Show / Podcast / MP3 file'.


The idea is that each month either I 'Joe Pritchard', or a guest dj record a mix covering a range of music styles giving our own individual interpretation of 'The Build Up'. One mix, for instance, I may work my way from Ambient Experimental stuff to Dubstep to Minimal to various flavours of House and Techno then Drum and Bass. For another mix someone else may apply their own styles and create something entirely different. DJ's are playing an excitingly wide range of genres at the moment and we are using this to bring you something completely unique, every month. Through interviews, exposure and helpful resources we aim to help unsigned producers find the advice, inspiration and enthusiasm they need to get their music where they want it to be...

Volume 11 – Local

This installment of The Build Up comes to you courtesy of Local, aka Gaz Clarke (https://soundcloud.com/localboogie) , son of Matt and Sheila of Panteg, Knighton, and it has a distinctly African flavour. ‘I first heard traditional African music through my girlfriend’s parents,’ says Gaz, ‘and they called it “happy music”.
It’s all really dance-y, with quite repetitive rhythms, and in the last couple of years I’ve been really enjoying music that fuses those African grooves with electronic beats.
This is more of a home listening-type mix, rather than something I’d play out in a club, and I’ve tried to make it a bit of a journey – different genres, different bpms, but all with an African tinge. There’s some hip-hop in there, some funk, some traditional Zimbabwean music using an mbira, and disco, and some stuff by Damon Albarn, who recorded an album in Kinesha, the capital of the Democratic Republic of Congo with Actress. And there are also a couple of my favourite house tunes by artists like Floating Points.’

Tracklisting will be available on http://www.thebuildup.co.uk tomorrow.

Outlook Festival – Super Sound Systems, Genre-Stepping & British Weather.

OutlookSeaEven though the weather this year may have been more commonly associated with a British festival it didn’t stop outlook from being one not to be missed.

Day and night, from the beach to the Harbour and Fortress the stages all pumped out their own styles. With a refreshing combination of well known and up and coming artists. Read More »

Win 2 tickets to Dimensions festival in Croatia

dimensions-festival-competitionWe’ve seen several festivals pop up around Croatia in recent years but for me, Dimensions festival is leading the way in terms of line up.

Top picks for us this year are Little Dragon, Carl Craig Presents 69, Four Tet Live, Kassem Mosse, Objekt, Floating Points, Gold Panda & mercury nominated Portico Quartet.

Dimensions focusses on the deeper end of the spectrum. You can expect some of the best sound systems in Europe, that will do justice to the excellent range of bass on the bill.

The festival takes place on a fort on the beautiful Adriatic coast in Croatia at For Punta Cristo, Pula between 6th – 9th September.

We’ll be there covering the festival – so look out for us and don’t forget to check our live updates and full post festival write-up! Read More »
