R$N Presents: The Noonday Underground Mix With Athlete Whippet
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 Athlete Whippet..
First record you bought?
What record never leaves your bag?
Raw Cuts 3&4 by Motor City Drum Ensemble.
What are you listening to at the moment?
I found this fantastic track called ‘Wants You’ on DJ Octopus’ soundcloud the other day. REAL fun.
Gotta be the mothership Dalston Superstore.
Dim Sum platter, probably.
A time machine, one record, one place… where and when?
Oh wow. Think we’ll have to go to the making of record here. Summer 1977, Berlin, Hansa Studio, right by the wall – Bowie, Eno and Visconti creating ‘Heroes’.
Death row meal?
Probably something from home, but that would be two very different things for each of us – Berlin and Tel Aviv.
Back to yours, who's coming dead or alive?
Our mates are pretty spread out across the globe a few years now after uni. So just another party with all of them in one place would be the best possible thing.
What Influences your music?
A mix of samples found by chance and live instruments.
Where can we find you?
Whats next for Athlete Whippet?
Got two new tracks coming up with TASTY remixes by Simbad and Severino.
When can we expect another release from you guys?
Those are in Feb and March. See you then.
