#022 Dave Clarke
Musicians can be broadly assigned one of two categories - those who are willing to say what they think, and those who are not. There is an element of risk and reward at play in this dynamic - and it might be a calculated strategy or purely a reflection of a given person's ability (or otherwise) to express themselves.
This week's guest, Dave Clarke, is a reliable representative of the former group. He is frequently interviewed, and those interviews often cover topics which have little to do with music - international politics is a common point of discussion.... which leads us to the disclaimer that there is quite a lot of non-music related chat on the show this week.
BUT THAT'S OK. DJs shouldn't be limited to talking about kick drums, and we cover topics here including living abroad, Brexit, energy policy, cultural conservatism, as well as the disappearance of counter-culture, the perils of record deals, and the secret sauce of hardware compressors.
This was a conversation I was looking forward to having and it did not disappoint.
On Hotflush this week we have the second single from Closet Yi's 'Simmer' EP, entitled Red Comet. It's a cracker.
And my remix of Glaskin's amazing track Hydrogroove I is also out on Friday. 140bpm breakbeat action !
