The Loneliness of the Long Distance Runnerbean

Hello The Lovely Internet!

Your intrepid musical explorer Dellamorte wishes to inform you that he is over halfway through the second installment of the podcast series, and, whilst it will not be delivered as hoped this weekend (due to a visit by his dear old mum!) it will at least be ready for you by the middle of next week! Yipee!!

Instead, please watch this - Some great sixties rock fun which was being sung by Dellamorte's day job colleague this morning and has now earwormed him for the rest of the day.

Stay safe kids, and may the universe bring you all your hearts ache for!

Bring a fiend...

Hello blog readers!

I trust you all had excellent and epic (or at least muted but relaxing, or productive and satisfying) weekends. My Friday saw me spending far more time at the excellent Black Plastic than I had anticipated, but I had a lovely time and was very glad I did. It did make preparing for recording Podcast Number Two a little more painful (damn you, God of Hangovers), but, well, sometimes you’ve gotta break a few eggs, right? It has to be said, though, there are going to be a LOT of extra hot tunes competing for space on the next one…. Also Sunday brought a Codex Machine studio session beavering away on a downbeat and slightly mashed tune currently entitled Occam’s Laser. Watch this space!

Anyway, in sadder news, the weekend saw the death of X-Ecutioners member and master turntablist Roc Raida in an extremely unfortunate mixed martial arts accident. Here’s a little tribute to his skillz. RIP Raida.

I made an error...

I mentioned elsewhere on here that I do music production in an outfit called Codex Machine - well, we are currently beavering away on an album due for completion before Christmas.

This below is a little taster for you. The picture contains a difficult clue as to one of the sample sources. ssh!

Black Plastic For The Win

Stuck for something to do next Friday? In the London area? I'll be going to this - You should too!
Big ups to my gurls Jo Cliche & Suicide Ally!

RIP Keith

So it was with a very heavy heart that I learned of the passing of a childhood hero this morning - a man with a passion for life, food, travel and, naturally a drink or two, who was truly infectious in his enthusiasm and blessed with charm to spare.

A Thousand Cards To Play

It says it's Randy Crawford, but I'd say it was The Crusaders.

Shouts to Ms Codex.

Podcast Episode One - Dance Or Die

Well, a blog's not much use without content, really, is it?

So here's some content in the form of my first Disco Dichotomy podcast. Admittedly it's a mite rough around the edges so far (I haven't recorded an intro tune or 'stings' yet, but these will come) but it's chock full of exciting music new and old and probably deserves a half-hearted shuffle through if nothing else!

Laterz y'all!

It's normal to start somewhere.

Well hello there.

A first post has to consist of something, doesn't it? In this case it consists of me saying hello.

My name is Dellamorte. I've been about for a while now, DJing in various nightspots and doing writing and production work in Codex Machine , as well as a long-running stint on excellent internet radio station iBreaks , but I felt it was time to move on and do something a little different, so, one and all, welcome to my new domain - Pull up a sofa, kick your shoes off, have an apple.

I'll be posting various bits and pieces up here -I'm currently aiming at a fortnightly podcast, plus various other mixes or tunes what me and my group have done so RSS or Atom me up (or whatever you kids do these days) and you can get updates right into your computer! dead clever, innit?

anyways, hope you enjoy the blog

Much Love
