Starlifter Radio in the 3051… Melbourne!

Shocking Pinks - Dance the Dance Electric

Howdy there! Dr Hitchcock here.

So it’s like the something of March 2011 and I’ve finally got round to posting something here in the blog for Starlifter Radio. Man it’s been a hectic couple of months. I guess it always gonna be moving countries and over a great body of water. Well, we finally made the big move back to Melbourne from Christchurch. And just in time as it turned out. Late in February Christchurch was hit by another massive earthquake, more destructive than the one in September. Although our immediate families and loved ones are alive we do know of people who are not. Our hearts and thoughts go out to all who lost people in the quake. It sucks, it’s hard and we really do feel for you. Believe it or not but almost 80,000 people have temporarily moved out of the city… 80,000, that’s almost a fifth of the city. Freakin’ woah! If you do want to help the people of Christchurch recovery from this traumatic event please try and help where you can or donate to the NZ Red Cross [].

Now on to the tunes, there are a few Christchurch gems in there, a new track from Muzai Records signed Sherpa, an oldie from Blonde Redhead, a remix of the original earthquake track by Circuit Bent, a new one from the new Siriusmo album and a dirty ole demo from Shocking Pinks first album, Dance the Dance Electric. Oh, and we have the latest podcast from Indie Slut, host o f Human Pleasure at Hourly Rates on RDU 98.5 FM. Jah bless you uncle!

So much love and peace,
Dr H

Juicy July, time for some new designer tunes on the ‘lifter

Welcome to a new month and the new line-up of tunes on the Starlifter Radio playlist.

One of the biggest releases to come out for me over the past few months has been the new one from the Chemical Brothers, ‘Further’. It’s fabulous, and probably one of my favorites since ‘Dig Your Own Hole’. Definitely not as dark and much more on the loved up buzz which I think is just what many people in the world need right now. I’ve added ‘K+D+B’ to the mix and ¬†to compliment that ‘It Doesn’t Matter’ is there just to remind you that the K-Hole isn’t too far away.

dESIGNER vIOLENCE¬†is the blood-gloss configuration of Thomas Dietrich and Tristen Deschain.¬†Barely a year old, dESIGNER vIOLENCE is just starting to receive pin pricks of the attention. The duo’s profile was recently elevated after the success of it’s remix of Within Temptation’s “The temptation within”. Tristen was formerly in a Christchurch outfit called 5 1/2 Minutes. We’ve added a glitchy wee number from them called ‘lIPSTICK’.

All my friends seem to be raving about these guys at the moment and why not ‘I think I, I think I like it!’. Fake Blood are the radness on the italio-nu-disco tip and I dig it yo. Cheers to Endless Alias for this hook-up.

Man, Tame Impala. They are just amazing. ¬†Their latest album, ‘Innerspeaker’, is in the running for my favourite album of the year, definitely the best rock album of the year so far. They seem to be pretty good at covering other people’s music too, a cover of the Midnight Juggernauts ‘Vital Signs’ has been just added, enjoy.

Karlmarx is production duo Isaac Aesili (aka Karl) and Mark McNeill. Isaac is based in Auckland and his brother Mark is based in Christchurch. The project got started as an experiment in combining the¬† different tastes of the two brothers together to see what the fusion of these would sound like. The songs on this album were made specifically after being conceptualized around the themes Karlmarx decided to explore.¬†Mark McNeill is a¬†producer and¬†engineer who makes his own music while studying at film school at Canterbury University. He was initially the studio engineer for The Shocking Pinks who are signed to DFA Records in New York. His influences include industrial and synthpop. ‘Leaning Shadows’ has been added to Starlifter for your listening pleasure.

And just to round things off I’ve uploaded ‘The Twelfth Hour’ DJ mix set from Brazilian Disco duo, The Twelves. Everything these guys touch is gold. Dance baby! If you want it for your MP3 Player you can download it from here.
