Time to produce new music has been at a bit of a premium for me recently but needing to do something creative I got a few lads over and we decided to have a trawl back through the vinyl collection and put together a mix of some of our favourite drum and bass tracks.
The lads from The St Mary’s Ceili Band in Clonmany are, despite appearances, properly in to the filth and some of the selections shocked everyone. Mick there, the younger lad in the middle just to the right of the “R”, would not give up until we put ‘Moonway Renegade’ in to the mix (he’s absolutely mad on Kung Fu movies) and, to everyone’s surprise, Father Billy – up there in the top right – was mad for getting ‘Faith’ in there as well. Fair play to them though, they get some bass going with that one wee kick drum and a couple of accordions.
The other thing you’ll notice from looking at the lads is that they’re a bit ‘old school’ so this mix is 100% vinyl only. There’s no CDJ nonsense here and any Traktor (see what I did there?!) knocking about around Clonmany is purely agricultural.
The mix can be found on SoundCloud right here:
Surprisingly enough we’ve not been booked to play the Clonmany Festival recently (if you don’t know about it, Google it, you won’t regret it) but we’re hoping that this latest mix will boost our profile a bit and we’ll be able to make contact with some of the top lads there. As a collective it’s our dream to open for Daniel O’Donnell on a wet Sunday afternoon in August and, ideally (and we know we might be pushing it here), we’d like him to come on in the middle of our set and knock out a few verses over us mixing. See there’s a little secret for you all, Daniel is one of the greatest MC’s Donegal has ever produced and his flow is ridiculously tight.
Dreams aside the lads and I do still like to maintain an air of order and keep our feet on the ground so a track listing has been put together for the mix and is right here:
