RJA10 : Tosh Ohta

Next up in the series is another new face - Bournemouth based Tosh Ohta. He's a medium sized anglo-japanese crate digger / enthusiast, and has been running his night This Sporting Life at Sixty Million Postcards (the infamous Lock Tavern's sister pub) for 3 years.

The mix spans 3 decades of music, taking influences from everywhere including Factory Records (Quando Quango and Mondays), 80s pop (Kate Bush, Fleetwood Mac), Proto house (Mr Fingers / Psychotropic) and many other places. Tosh's night This Sporting Life has just migrated to London (debuting at the Lock Tavern on Chalk Farm Road) so keep the eyes peeled for more dates in the big smoke if you like the sound of the mix.

Sorry - no tracklist

RJA09 : Hushpuppy

Resident DJ at the legendary R-P-Z Thursday night sessions at the Glasgow School of Art, Hushpuppy takes us on a cosmic odyssey of the highest order.

The mix gives an insight into the earlier hours of an R-P-Z Thursday, before guests such as Alex Metric & Autokratz (playing live at the end of this month) crank up the pressure and get the Art Schoolers brewing up to fever pitch. Selection-wise this mix is something of a departure from previous Ruffjamz episodes, so we hope you enjoy it as much as we did ;)

Sorry - no tracklist.

Glasgow Connection

Thought I'd give everyone this little ditty myself and Telford from the Sub Club made a couple of months back. We never did anything with it due to the samples used, but I've been playing it a lot in deeper points of a set as it's a great little mid-tempo groover. Enjoy

Our mates over at Fine Art gave us a heads up on some swag at their online store. The last few hand-stamped copies of their balearic bubbler "Rumshack" by Disk are good for 20% off if you're quick.

Just make sure and use the discount code 'ooft' when you checkout.

You can preview the track here ... and buy it here.

(I can't wait for the) Weekend (to begin)

You can catch both of us for a rare back to back 4 hour set at Mamasan in Glasgow tonight from 11pm - not done one of these for a good couple of months so should be good fun ;)

On Saturday I'll be doing a 2 hour OOFT/L.E.S.S. Productions showcase in the flagship Apple store also in Glasgow from 3pm, then its off up the road to Aberdeen to play at Korova for Esa (of recent Ruffjamz fame) & Fuad's "Frankly" night.

Roll on...
