R$N Presents: The Noonday Underground Mix With Z Lovecraft


The Noonday Underground is a brand new project founded by General Public. Over the coming months Ransom Note is delighted to be able to bring you a series of exclusive mixes recorded from the Thursday afternoon parties which take place at Grow in Hackney. The concept is simple…

"Every Thursday at Grow, Hackney we celebrate music, art, conversation and community. This week Grow is teaming up with General Public, Ransom Note, and The Gaia Gallery to bring you The Noonday Underground, an early evening music and community social where DJ's play for 1 hour (ish) slots. The session will be recorded and released throughout the month on a weekly basis on Ransom Note."

Next up is Z Lovecraft…

First record you bought?

First physical piece of music I bought, my dad took me to HMV back in the day and I got Baha Men – Who Let The Dogs Out and Crazy Town – Butterfly both on CD single. First record (vinyl) proper I think was Junkie XL version of Elvis Presley – Little Less Conversation.

What record never leaves your bag?

I don’t actually have one to be honest but at the moment it’s got to be 'Alton Miller – Untitled’ – killer immersive sounds from Detroit with some proto Broken Beat on there for good measure.

What are you listening to at the moment?

I recently discovered this artist called ‘Marcel’ aka Carmel – and have been rinsing his first three albums non-stop. He is becoming a huge inspiration for my own music, as its tough as nails, full of breaks and varied stylistically.

Favourite venue?

Depends on the music completely! For more intimate dances Canavans Pool Club is superb but Berghain always blows me away when ever I visit. I have also seen countless jaw-dropping gigs at Village Underground.

Dream rider?

I have never thought about this to be honest but Gin, Ting, Ice and Lime always works a treat. Maybe with some nice cheese and crackers to make it a bit more upmarket.

A time machine, one record, one place… where and when?

Making of Michael Jackson – Beat It, when Van Halen did the guitar solo overdub and the studio speaker caught on fire!!!

Death row meal?

Pizza, always the same, endless variation.

Back to yours, who's coming – dead or alive?

Big L, King Tubby and Jeff Buckley. And Jon Hopkins.

Best fact?

TR-909 Drum Machine Hi Hats are samples of Roland 909 engineer Atsushi Hoshiai’s own personal hi hats. I want them.
