The Beat Bash on Radio Clash Live

Beat Bash 01 2014 cover

Regular Radio Clash Live contributor Jeb Edwards aka 50 Pound Note is doing a new regular mix series called The Beat Bash named after the radio show he hosted in the early 1990′s – and of course as with his other mixes such as Kiss The Future and the 50 Pound Note podcasts you’ll be able to hear the latest Beat Bash on Radio Clash Live on Saturday night from midnight to 1am (GMT).

The first installment is up and it’s very good – including tracks from Dead Or Alive, Eurythmics, My Life With The Thrill Kill Kult, Paul Rutherford, Depeche Mode, Meat Beat Manifesto, Severed Heads, Boxcar, Pet Shop Boys and New Order.

Looking forward to more nineties-tastic mixes, and the timing couldn’t be better since that sound is very ‘in’ at the moment, what with Disclosure and Friend Within amongst many others updating the classic garage and house sounds for a new generation.

Bastard – Old Skool classic mashups, bootlegs and bastard pop

Bastard Pop poster (Poster seen in Brighton – so Bastard Pop is making a comeback?)

In honour of Grant Essexboy I scheduled a show of classic mashups, bootlegs, bastard pop, mixes etc – all before 2005. It was such a success I’ve decided to make it a regular slot, so Sundays 9pm-00:30 BST you can go back in time, way back, to a time before key matching software and Ableton! Some real gems I’ve uploaded, and will continue to add them.

RIP Essexboy & Bastard! show tonight 9pm

In honour of Grant Essexboy (RIP), podcaster and bootlegger extraordinaire, there’s a show tonight on Radio Clash at 9pm-00:30 BST called Bastard! Many bootleg memories, some of his bootlegs too, no talk just many bastard pop gems and a classic Superchunk from soundHog. Complete retro nostalgia of the early mashup scene (pre 2005) but given the situation (Grant was one of the bootleggers and DJs part of GYBO and regular at the Bastard club) it seems appropriate, amd maybe some of you will learn some mashup history! 😉
