Carnivalism Podcast No. 16 – Hello 2010!



Hopping genres like they were privet hedges, we have 1 hour 45 minutes of delving through the Carnivalism record shelves (and hard drives) to see you into the new year for you this month.

Norwegian Good

Kings of Convenience star Erlend Øye adds vocals to Phonique’s “Casualties”. Oye is known for singing over his DJ sets and have given his distinctive voice to the likes of Royksopp and Ash. His melancholic tone is suited equally to down-tempo acoustic and livelier indie-disco in which he is represented in his latest band project the band Whitest Boy Alive.

Rules was released last year and is The Whitest Boy’s second album. Check out their nicely illustrated albums and tees at their website.

Interesting fact; Jarvis Cocker directed the music video for Erlend Oye’s 2004 single Sudden Rush.

Good To Know Chaz

Chaz (or Charles) Jankel has been around the (ahem) block a few times in his musical career teaming up with Ian Dury in the 70’s and going on to be part of his group Ian Dury & the Blockheads.

Chaz’s credits during this period include co-writing some of the groups biggest tracks “Hit Me With Your Rhythm Stick”, Sex & Drugs & Rock & Roll”, “Spasticus Autisticus”. His solo career continued through the 80’s and is now enjoying a revival, being rediscovered by a younger audience.

Tirk Records have wisely taken Chaz into their fold ensuring that some of that some of his best work gets another time around, while promoting his newer productions.

Breaks Slyde back in

Matt’s penchant for breaks has been a little neglected in podcasts of late so it bears no suprise to see Finger Lickin’s Slyde muscling into proceedings.

Robin 12 Tree & Jason Laidback have been at it (musically) since childhood and finally crossing paths in 2002 with the track ‘Flow’. That track featured on one of the most memorable dance compilations of the time, Notting Hill Carnival’s institution Sancho Panza and their album “Float”.

Interesting fact; Jason was Kylie Minogue’s scratch DJ on her ‘Fever’ tour.

Jerry Fuchs R.I.P.

Brooklyn based drummer Gerhardt Fuchs tragically died last November. Jerry played percussion for the likes of LDC Soundsystem, Maserati, Moby, MSTRKRFT, Holy Ghost, Turing Machine, !!!, and is included on this mix by means of Juan Maclean of which he accompanied for live sets. In a world of digital music it is easy to forget what a difference the presence of live drums have on dance music and with the tireless velocity that Jerry played, he leaves a big hole on the New York music scene.

Radio station WNYU’s Beats in Space host Tim Sweeney paid a heartfelt tribute to Jerry that you can hear on his weekly podcast.

Juan described Jerry as “one of my best and most loyal friends. He was hands-down the best drummer I have ever played with or seen for that matter.”

You can see Jerry in action below with a live rendition of “Happy House” by The Juan Maclean.
