General Public & Ransom Note bring you the Noonday Underground.
A term coined to capture the bizarre energy of Sunday, day Northern Soul dancers in the late 70's, now a monthly live mix series come Sunday social.
We champion acts that bubble away just bellow the surface giving opportunity to the lesser known Dj's as well as giving praise to the more established artists on the underground dance music scene.
Each selector has an hour (ish) slot to record. That mix is then released for your listening pleasure on a weekly basis for the following month on the Ransom Note website.
Next up is Peach...
First record you bought?
This collection of Spanish music for $1 at Value Village (a second hand store in the US/Canada).
What record never leaves your bag?
A Short Introduction To The House Sounds of Terre Thaemlitz by Dj Sprinkles vs. K-S.H.E
What are you listening to at the moment?
Various early 90s - mid 90s dance records & exploring/getting to know back catalog of several labels. Basically living in a constant discogs wormhole of listening to whatever sounds good.
In London? Corsica Studios. Outside of London, Greissmuehle in Berlin.
Bottle of Veuve cliquot, water, & snacks (bananas, salt and vinegar crisps from Co-op, etc).
A time machine, one record, one place… where and when?
Studio 54 any night Grace Jones was there.
Death row meal?
This is probably the hardest question you've asked me - I think either #173 from Toronto's Pho restaurant, Golden Turtle, or my dad's big filipino breakfast - eggs, bacon, longanisa, garlic fried rice. Also a bottle of Veuve cliquot bc dying.
Back to yours, who's coming dead or alive?
Only club kids & Grace Jones.
I am really good at juggling objects and I now have cat-like reflexes because of it.
Where can we find you?
Whats next for Peach ?
More mixes & radio shows coming out across the globe, Gigs in London for Distant Hawaii & some I can't announce yet, Back to Canada in June to play some gigs & radio shows there. Coming up to a year of my Radar Radio show, Snacktime w Peach, so more exciting guests on there & solo mixes to come... & continuing to work on my own production skills.
