This summery heater was hidden on the B2 on Public Possession’s 15th release, so you may want to have a look back and dust it off again for (the British) sun. From RA – “The tune, which features on Public Possession’s latest compilation EP, sees the duo attempting to recreate the drum programming from Gwen Stefani’s “Hollaback Girl” without actually sampling it. The resulting track is a gem, a flinty breakbeat echoing Stefani’s 2005 pop smash playing off against a chirpy synth melody.”

We are absolutely over the moon to have a contribution from Automatic Tasty for our podcast series. He’s part of the excellent Lunar Disko label having also released on Wrong Island Communications. He has really gone the extra mile with this mix and as usual we threw some questions about the mix as well as what he’s been up to..
“I’m not too sure really, not too much I don’t think. Reading mostly.
I made the mix at home on my computer over a period of weeks. I can’t mix records to save my life, I figure it best therefore to leave such dark arts to more adept practitioners. I opted instead to make a tapestry consisting of many different songs and snippets of television and radio noise along with some songs and poems etc.
This mix is about ‘dreaming while you’re awake’; it extends its hand in invitation to departure. I tried to create a little landscape of feeling and meaning, through which might be brought into sharper relief the experience of life in all its endless strangeness. I hope someone out there will find it useful, or moving.”

Love this guy so much, more recently I have found myself going back to this album Panta Rhei… as clone puts it: “A versatile selection of 12 beautiful and very personal tracks. Deep, melancholic moods are present, as well as more lightweight and uplifting moments.”
So many to choose from his collection and this album, Xstat is one of my favourites for sure; perfect serenity with dark undertone, full of emotion… really great track.

Last time I did a big wave of blog posts I put up the other side of this one, such an ace EP. This one is less funky but it’s a really nice grooving minimalist summer workout. For me the proper side of minimal, like that Villalobos/Zip style I still love.

Dark electro acid roller from Danny, that was released on Omnidisc a while back alongside the equally great ‘Pop’. Check em both!
