New Podcast & New Mix for yo ears!

First up is a new live mix from a set I done did at Q Bar Bangkok – it’s one of my regular Saturday night ‘Bangers & Mashups’ sets recorded straight from the mixer on Saturday 2nd June 2012… Holla if you want a downloadable version and I’ll whack it on my SoundCloud

I’m aslo back on the podcast tip – this time for Q Bar Live. Myself and my Saturday night MC; Travelin’ Matt are sitting down once every 2 weeks to chat about what’s been going on in Q Bar, Bangkok and the world – we even play some music! iTunes link here – but we’ll be switching subscription links very soon (problems with Podomatic have meant we have to move our podcast elsewhere)

Singapore & Podcasts!

Hello you lot! Just a quick update to let you know what I’m up to, or gonna be getting up to… First off I’m happy to announce that I’m gonna be spinning (for the very first time) in Singapore at the awesome STEREOLOUNGE on the 28th of August (2010) – and again at the end of September (Saturday 25th) during Singapore’s very own Formula 1 event!!! Sooooo… if you’re in the area please come down and say “WAZZZUP!”

Secondly; I’ve got a podcast with tons of  audio goodies already loaded up for your iPod / Blackberry / computer / whatever.  Usually I’d simply provide you with a link that automatically takes you to iTunes where you can subscribe and download… Apple (being finicky buggers) are making it quite difficult to get me properly listed in the podcast secion of iTunes. Good news is that there’s a work-a-round, and all you gotta do is this…

• Open iTunes
• Click on ‘Advanced’ in the top menu bar
• Select ‘Subscribe to Podcast’
• Copy ‘n paste this into the box: http://www.octo.co.uk/Podcasts/podcast_newfeed.xml
• BINGO! You’re subscribed and can download live mixes, charts, interviews and a whole heap more dating back a few years!!

I’ll be at BedSupper Club this Saturday, so if you’re in BKK drop me a comment below and I’ll happily add you to my guest list!!

Musical Sketches…

Well it’s been a while since I spoke to you (people of the world wide web) so I thought I’d try and squeeze some of the musical oddities I’ve been working on into your beautiful ears!!! They’re mostly just ideas at this stage and are currently being worked into fully-fledged master pieces (ahem 😉 )

Anyway, have a listen and let me know what you think!

Mudslinger (demo) – DJ Octo (Original)
Buddha Bar meets 70s prog rock jam.. only 2mins, needs to be more ‘epic’

The Russians made me do it!!

...

Finally had to give in and password protect my mixes as I got walloped by 14gigs worth of downloads in one hour a few days back… All my podcasts & mixes are still freely available, but you’ll need to either comment on this site, or mail me and I’ll send you the username ‘n password… It sucks but I’m getting my ass kicked by dem dastardly Russian spammers.
