Carnivalism Podcast No. 6 – Matt’s Bestival 2008 Tribute



Recorded back in September and dedicated to a brilliant weekend slopping about in the mud.  Inspiration coming from Greg Wilson, Horsemeat Disco & Hercules Love Affair, Gilles Peterson & Todd Terje to name but a few. Although the rain was torrential nothing was going to stop us having fun at the 2008 Bestival.

While  Gilles Peterson entertained the Bollywood Tent with Todd Terje’s edit of Chic’s “I want your love”, Horsemat Disco and Greg Wilson ruled the roost in the Rilza stage.`

Thats just a handful of the DJs. I haven’t even mentioned any of the live acts!

At last year’s event I discovered the deep techy sounds Will Saul, man behind Simple Records for the first time DJing in the Rizla lorry. When he dropped Wagon Cookin’s “Start to Play”, I was mesmerised by this hypnotic track. It is now one that is very hard to leave out of the record bag when playing out.
