All I wanna do is ride around shining

Finally finished my review of Lars Behrenroth and Ripperton’s new split single on Liebe*Detail, which is now up on RA. For some reason my writing process has slowed to a crawl, so I only get a paragraph or two per night. I must need a brain lube job or something, maybe some sudoku puzzles, anything to relax my cramped mind. And then there’s booze to lay off…

Our first track today comes from John Paul Jones and Ryan Cavanagh of NYC, who graciously sent me their mix of “The Eraser.” Keep your eyes open for more Worst Friends material here and elsewhere — the guys are currently shopping their tunes to a number of highly respected labels.

My friend DJ Tornado found a handful of live sets from Beatport’s Pool Sessions at the Winter Music Conference on the Drum N Bass Arena messageboard. I thought I’d share the links with you.

Those of you interested how Booka Shade’s Chicago show went can find out at Resident Advisor, where my review is up now. Currently buried under a pile of review releases (The Academy Is? Really?) which are sucking up my writing time. Hopefully I’ll be back in the saddle later this week.
