Flamenco Bastardo (compilation)

Another brief update whilst I battle with the dubstep beast which is The Physics Disco.

Some months ago, I was asked by the one and only DJ Useo to contribute to the wonderful Sound Unsound Forum's Flamenco Mash Challenge. Intrigued by the prospect, straight away, there was only one group that I even entertained mashing.....the amazing Rodrigo y Gabriela (possibly the greatest live act I've ever seen).

I had a mash using them with Led Zeppelin that was tossed aside a year ago, me fearing it impossible to complete. So of course, I headed straight back to it. Not content with one mash featuring their guitar wizardry, I began a silly mash using their incredible track Diablo Rojo (written about a rollercoaster they'd rode upon, of all things) and classic foot stomper Reel 2 Reel's "I Like To Move It", but at the last minute, I bottled it and played it safe with REM's "Losing My Religion" my biased wisdom, my favourite version of many mashes using this acapella.

But that's not all. There's a TRUCKload of great tracks on here, and considering the theme, a SH*Tload of variety of tracks and styles. My peers and contemporaries have done me proud. This is a great way to kick off the summer.

Grab the album from Useo's Blog....

Pour a glass of rioja, wear your tightest strides and a white shirt, grip a rose between your teeth and enjoy the passion of music.

And there's a bass rumbling on the horizon from me too.....

Sounds In the New World (compilation)

Sorry for the lack of updates lately folks - I'm currently putting together a new mix, which has been taking up most of my mashing time. I have made a few tracks for compilations though, including one which is featured on the new Envision/Mashtix comp, "Sounds In the New World"

Put together by the excellent Envision, with the help of the guys at Mashtix, this smashing compilation features 25 tracks, by 20 producers, blending a wide wide variety of genres and sources, resulting in a real feelgood album to kick the summer off with.

So if you're longing for a quick Colatron fix, be sure to head over to Envision's site

Or alternatively, find it on Mashtix at

Next on the cards, hopefully, will be the SUSN Flamenco Challenge Summer Album!
