Overdub of Awful

Author: Beffrey  //  Category: Mixes

Our first album made from completely original material. Well, almost! There are 3 or 4 samples we’ve lifted from elsewhere, but the rest of the work is material we’ve created or recorded ourselves.

It was created over a 6 month period between 2016 and 2017. We first recorded 8 channels of various synths, samplers and drones, then wrote each of the 10 tunes (some together, some individually) and overdubbed them.

Strictly No Dancing

Author: Beffrey  //  Category: Mixes

Recorded in two sittings; one very recently and one about a year ago.

A mostly relaxing mix with occasional sinister and dark overtones.

Features two specially recorded monologues: one written by Jungle Jim about a dream he’d had, and the other is of unknown origin, although we suspect credit for this goes to Mr. Big Daddy Stu, Bangor, circa 1998.

Also featuring some live recordings from San Francisco Airport, a monologue about democracy by E.M. Forster, lots of outdoor sounds and various characters from BBC3′s Bellamy’s People.

Chocolate Hostage

Author: Beffrey  //  Category: Mixes

The result of two weekends spent mainly laughing at poo. An 84 BPM Hip hop mix, featuring ‘Unemployed Welshmen’ from Blue Jam by Chris Morris, Paddy Considine and Shane Meadows discussing poo euphemisms and scratching aplenty.

We had a live webcam broadcast on the 2nd session during which, while we were having some computer problems, we were texted some sound advice from my mate Heavy Chris to ‘turn it off and on again’. We did and it worked! Cheers Chris! :)

In places, this is probably the most twisted, unpleasant mix we’ve done. The original mix was done by Jungle Jim and then overdubbed by the both of us in one session.

A lot of the spoken stuff that’s featured on this mix was originally recorded for a dark comedy / sketch show we wrote called Shy Talk (much in the style of Blue Jam by Chris Morris) back in 1998. It never got used in the end as the radio station we were going to appear on (Storm FM, a local student radio station for Bangor, North Wales) never actually got a licence. We still have all the original material though. We actually have the finished shows too and will probably upload them at some point.

We’ve also started working on a video for this mix. It’s quite an ambitious project though, so it’s doubtful there’ll be anything finished until 2009.

Tracklist:
The Orb – Majestic (Millwall Mix)
Biosphere – As The Sun Kissed The Horizon

‘Best Breakfast in Chorlton’ is actually the claim made on the board of Revise Bar in Chorlton, Manchester. And how right they are too! There’s a food area there called Tom’s Kitchen which serves a mighty array of culinary delights, all cooked and served personally by Tom himself.

We went there on the Saturday after spending all of the Friday night before getting the mix together. As soon as we walked in and sat down, we heard ‘I Shot the Sheriff’ by Bob Marley playing. Jim proposed that ‘Tom’s Diner’ by Suzanne Vega would fit quite nicely over it. One marvellous breakfast later (honestly, you really need to try one!), we headed back to give it a try. Lo and behold, it sounded great! We thought it quite apt that we were in Tom’s Kitchen when the idea came about and so decided to call the mix ‘Best Breakfast in Chorlton’.

We’d like to dedicate the Suzanne Vega mix to Tom the Head Chef – his food’s sorted me out on many an occasion now!. This is the second entirely computer sequenced and beatmatched mix, but has more of a live mixed feel than Prawn of the Dead.
