Yesterday I learnt that Halloween has its origins in a Pagan festival called Samhain. Â It looks like a rather good festival, without all the nonsense that comes with modern Halloween. Â Anyway, before I learnt this, I had already intended to play this Roky Erickson tune, what with my show falling on 31st October and all:
Also featured in this week’s show was the Mark Pritchard’sÂ Harmonic 313 remix of his collaboration with Wiley, “Money Man”:

Back in June I told you about a remix competition for These New Puritans‘ Hologram. Â I suggested I might have a go myself, and indeed I did! Â I would be the first to admit that mine is not a fully realised idea. Â Given more time (to get more familiar with Logic, as well as exploring my idea for the remix) I think my mix has potential to sound much better. Â Another thing to note (and again this is to do with me not being too familiar with Logic yet) is that mine is relatively quiet – so turn up the volume when you listen to mine!
Anyway, I entered my effort into the competition. Â You can hear it below along with the original and also my favourite of the other competition entries, that by Mute Branches.
The winner will receive tickets to Londons 1234 festival, where These New Puritans are performing, along with special prize pack which includes music, merchandise and signed special edition goodies. The winner will also receive a pro-account for Fairtilizer.
