Neko Neko Beat tape stream

Readers digest studio setup

Readers digest studio setup

Neko Neko will be streaming his new beat tape tonight@ 9pm via ustream. The stream is coming in the form of a mixdown session from his 6-track cassette tape machine and some live mpc work. The beat tape, entitled Readers digest, is project with limitations from the get go. He’s taken a box set of “utter crap” middle of the road music released by readers digest fame with the intention of making something listenable out of it.  There are self imposed rules too…

1. Samples to be used only from the records in the boxset.

2. Drum breaks are allowed to be used from other records, seeing as there are none on the boxset ones.

3. Synths can be used to make basslines and sounds but no melodies or main parts of the song can be instrument based, only samples from the boxset.

4. There are equipment limitations mainly that only analog equipment can be used, apart from mastering on the computer.

Tune in here from 9pm tonight to hear results.


Get down to the Umbro HQ on Dale St for a chance to see acts released or soon to be released on the Mind On Fire imprint, including….

Paper Tiger – Stripping it back to just decks and live sax for this showcase but if you have seen them at previous MOF events you know you shouldn’t miss.

Hot Vimto – A live DJ, MPD, Launch Pad extravaganza between GKut (Great Minds Vol. 1) and Danny Drive Thru, whose 7″ is the next release later this year.

LA77 – With all manner of gadgets and electronic trickery in tow, LA77’s (Great Minds Vol.1) unique beats are sure to get your attention.

This event will run between 6pm and Midnight and cost £5. However, this wristband will get you into the Neighbourhood after party at Soup Kitchen which runs until 4am.
