Surrender all

I've always been a fan of James Lavelle (you can probably tell if you have read any of my previous posts) from his first record label in MOWAX and his continuing involvement in my favorite group U.N.K.L.E.
Now all of the post Never Never Land releases have been on his new label Surrender all, which has a sister company in Surrender Arts. Now Unkle have always had great merchandise but the quality and design of the products available is amazing.
You should check the website out for yourself, but you should do it quick as if you know anything about Lavelle there wont be many, or available for long.
There is also a great interview with the man himself in Streetwear Today magazine.(A variation of the t-shirt in the picture is available online)

Your Unkle Fell To Earth

I have just found out that ex U.N.K.L.E member Rich File's new band We Fell To Earth are playing there first ever gig at the ICA in london. I saw unkle play there a few years back and its such a great venue and i got the chance to meet ian brown (which was amazing), tickets are £10 and support on the night will be from current U.N.K.L.E member Pablo Clements.

It looks like a bit of an U.N.K.L.E fest so should be a great night.
check out some of the tracks on last fm or there myspace

The Coolest Cats In Town

Well i say town, more like France!!
Just recived an e-mail from the ED BANGER crew and it said this!!

Ed Banger Records and So Me celebrate 2009 with a big surprise. After six years of music, artworks, videoclips and parties, the label and its art director come with their new project, COOL CATS.

Get yourself on there quick because most of the stuff is of course limited. A pick of my favorite things have to be the Justice - Dance t-shirt and the ED BANGER 100% Be@rbrick (shown above)

Also found this week is the teaser trailer for Inglorious Basterds. The long time coming world war 2 flick from my favorite director Quentin tarantino. Now he's been talking about this since before kill bill, but with a release date now set for the 21'st of August it looks like its finally going to hit the screens. From what you see in the trailer and the cast list. Brad Pitt, Eli Roth, Diane Kruger, Mike Myers?,Michael Fassbender and Sam Jackson looks like were in for a treat!!!

Now that is cool!

March of the Terracotta Army

Ok, so i was looking through the mountains of rubbish on Myspace and came upon this gem.
A new group promoting there upcoming single Stealing Souls, Ok so its a little repetitive at the start but as soon as it breaks and the vocal starts it really picks up.
So i checked out there website and found on there music player a track really worth checking out, its called Drop Off and reminded me very much of the Unkle track Blackout (which i love).
There are some remixes on there of other tracks, one was Way Out West - Domimation and Quivvers Chasin A Feeling. Both were quite progressive but very well produced and i wouldn't be to surprised to hear them in a Sasha, Digweed or Dave Seaman set sometime soon.
Well worth checking out and also looks like they might be doing a live show this year, so lets hope the army march there way up to Manchester.

Famous For 15 Minutes (Triple FM)

So, what's it all about? Well Triple FM will be my blog with news and reviews on movies and music from my world.
Now your thinking this might not be that interesting, but I am sure over time there will be something of interest for everyone.
I will post links to any trailers and music I find and websites to any nights I visit.
I'm really into electronic music and dj my own blend of breakbeat, electro and house music. So from time to time there may be a few links to sets of mine both past and present. If anyone has any new music or mixes they have done please send me a link and I'll have a listen and post it here for you.
I'm hoping in the future to launch a new night in Manchester, so will be looking for local dj's and producers to put on the bill.
Hope to hear from you soon and don't forget everyone will have there 15 minutes of fame.
