cool. thanks for the lukid link. one last question then i'm gone forever. why the name codeine drums?
It came from a particular DJs description of a Rustie record that was used as part of a press release package years ago. I think he called the percussion ‘lean drums’ or something to that effect, and even though it was a bit wack I liked the feeling it evoked; that reference to Southern US rap, but not wholly rap, rap as an influence on the style of electronic music. Kind of what the show’s all about. We love rap and hip hop, but also a really mixed bag of electronic music. It all feeds into one another. Codeine Drums was meant to be used first for a DIY label, but it never materialised, so it got used for the radio show instead.
“I have wanted to kill myself a hundred times, but somehow I am still in love with life. This ridiculous weakness is perhaps one of our more stupid melancholy propensities, for is there anything more stupid than to be eager to go on carrying a burden which one would gladly throw away, to loathe one’s very being and yet to hold it fast, to fondle the snake that devours us until it has eaten our hearts away?”—Voltaire (via thepoliticsofcruelty)
“The world of the future, to me, is not a place, but an event. A construct, not by one author in the form of words written to make up a novel or story that other persons sit in front of, outside of, and read – but a construct in which there is no author and no readers but a great many characters in search of a plot.”—Philip K. Dick, The Android and The Human
Todays broadcast features two guest mixes from Konx-om-Pax (an animator, graphic designer, label boss, video director, producer, DJ and the latest signing to the mighty Planet Mu) and LuckyMe’s very own R&B and Ghettotech lover Bamboo Palace, who joined us in the studio for a 2 hour special.
There was a really eclectic mix of sounds over the course the show, and we hope you enjoy it.
Thanks to Tom and Daryl for their records and time.
