samurai.fm is coming to an end...

After 10+ years of broadcasting it's the end of an era and samurai.fm is no longer sustainable. It's been a great honour to be one of the first underground broadcasting stations, starting in Tokyo in 2002. We apologise for the sad news but we cannot afford to keep it going despite having some great ideas of how to create a brand new cutting edge music platform.

The site will be going offline on December 31st 2014. Until then artists will be able to download their previously uploaded recordings, and you will still be able to listen to the shows as usual.

If any benefactors interested in funding a new site come forward then maybe we could get the music streaming again with fresh new technology, otherwise we will say sayonara and thank you for listening.

In the meantime, if you are feeling nostalgic you can leave your thoughts and comments on our Facebook page...

Real Grooves 50th Event Special with The Mole

Real Grooves 50th Event Special with The Mole

Real Grooves presents its 50th event with a live show by The Mole from Canada. Also in the line up will be a live show by the Modern Deep Left Quartet of Mathew Jonson, Tyger Dhula, Danuel Tate and Colin de la Plante (aka The Mole), and selection of local talent.

Dance music fans in Victoria and Vancouver in the 90s heard a lot of The Mole in his infancy. His mentors, believing he had a natural talent, pushed him from his DJ beginnings into music production. This natural talent was, in reality, mountains of hard work consummated in secret not unlike the rigorous discipline kung-fu students undertake in those wonderful bamboo forests. For The Mole though this retreat took the form of long winters in the French and arguably the cultural capital of Canada, Montreal. Long, cold winters indeed.

If you are in Tokyo check out the event info here and be sure to get yourself down for what will be a great event...

EPM Podcast 17 - DJ Tuco & Quime

EPM Podcast 17 - DJ Tuco & Quime

The 17th installment of EPM podcast features Prague based British DJs Tuco & Quime from Meanbucket Music. The guys are behind the successful Dutty Weekend club nights in that beautiful city, which has hosted the likes of Sinden, Mumdance, L-Vis 1990 and Solo, spawned a blog and in 2010 the duo’s own label, Meanbucket.

Here in the mix Tuco & Quime give us a taste of what is currently rocking the Czech capital. Featuring a mash up of house, electro, breaks, dubstep, garage and ghetto tek beats the duo mix up the likes of Bok Bok & Cubic Zirconia, DJ Rashad, Dirt Crew, Tvyks, Venom & Damage, DJ Clent, Syntonics, Terror Tone, Zort and more into a high octane party mix.

Whilst the label is still in its infancy it has already attracted globally acclaimed remixers such a Fool's Gold's Nick Catchdubs, DJ Donna Summer and Planet Mu's Chrissy Muderbot, including support from a number of established artists such as Seiji, Feadz and Doc Daneeka. Despite this outside interest the label has a wealth of talent at home in the Czech Republic uncovering local gems and presenting them on a worldwide scale. In fact the label’s fourth release is out this week which sees Berlin based New Yorker Naifian, aka Mike Genius, drop his debut release on Meanbucket ‘Blue Snow’ - a synth driven, garage influenced, rhythmical master piece which also features remixes from Quime, Tuco and DJ Donna Summer.

Q&A with Rory Hoy

1. Please give us a quick run through the music in the mix. What inspired you to choose these tracks?
Well, as you can see from this mix - I’m a bit of a fan of the 1990s Big Beat scene, so this particular mix is quite heavy on the Big Beat stuff. The reason why I prize Big Beat over other genres I think is because of the general feel-good factor of the genre as it doesn’t always take itself too seriously, has very few rules and is rather eclectic.
2. Your biography at such a young age is insane! Someone should make a film about you. Oh you already did! How did that come about?
Autism and Me (my multi award-winning film) came about around mid-2005 because there were no books or documentaries at the time speaking about the subject actually coming from somebody from the spectrum - I wanted to do something that was short, and to the point, and could actually be understood by everyone. It’s something that groups of people can sit and watch and learn, in a short space of time, what it’s like being autistic on a day-to-day basis in more simple terms. I’ve won awards from Film Directors like Guy Ritchie and have won Royal Television Society and UNICEF Awards. I’ve had worldwide recognition for the film since it’s DVD release, and I get e-mails from grateful families and people from all over the world - In fact one American Mum said having watched my film, she felt she knew her son for the first time, which is pretty awesome.
3. All five of your albums have been released on Freddy Fresh’s Howlin’ Records. How did you come into contact with him?
In July 2007, when I first set up an account with MySpace (remember that?), I sent him what became my first album, ‘Cosmic Child’ - He loved what I did, said he didn’t normally do chill out stuff like this, and it was a bit of a gamble for him, but he liked it so much, and to quote ABBA, took a chance on me - and the rest they say…is history!
4. What were your first experiences of dance music?
Aaahhh, I got into Dance Music a very, very long time ago! It was the 1990s to be exact, the days when EDM was called Electronica, Lady Gaga was called Madonna, One Direction were called Take That, and Eminem was called …Eminem! My first record that I got was ‘Boom, Shake The Room’ by Jazzy Jeff and The Fresh Prince back in 1992/3, when I was around 5, though I got into dance music serious in 1999, when Big Beat was at it’s height of popularity, probably explaining why I’m so into the genre.
5. How did you come to win a competition to remix Dan Le Sac vs Scroobius Pip’s ‘Thou Shalt Always Kill’ on Sunday Best?
For a few years, I had admired the song, but after looking for the acapella online, I found out there was a remix competition, so I sent it in and what do you know…I won the competition! I also won a nice acetate, which is now on my wall.
6. Even funk and soul man Craig Charles plays your stuff. You seem to be able to appeal across many genres at will. Is that by design?
Craig Charles is my man! I first got in touch with him back in 2009, when I sent stuff from the ‘Standing On Dust’ album for his show to play and guess what . . . he played it! Although I’m not strictly Funk & Soul, he seems to love the stuff I do, and he regularly plays my tracks. I’ve met him a couple of times, and we get on really well! The reason why I dip into many genres is because I want to appeal to as broad an audience as possible, especially as sometimes, I’m asked to DJ at family-friendly Festivals, you have to appeal from people to 0 up to age dead. I also (mostly) try to avoid current trends and stick to playing and producing genres that have been tried and tested, as I have this tendency to jump on the bandwagon either too early before it’s trendy or too late when nobody cares about it anymore.

7. Who is your all time favourite DJ? And why?
This is a very difficult question…I have a few favourite DJs, though I would probably have to say Freddy Fresh first and foremost, and then followed by Norman Cook AKA Fatboy Slim, as they were the ones, who introduced me to the world of Electronic Dance Music back in 1999. I had the pleasure of meeting Norm on my 25th birthday, back in December 2012, and he is a lovely guy in real life. We still contact each other from time to time sending tunes back and fourth. In fact, he sent over a remix of his latest single ‘Eat Sleep Rave Repeat’ months before the record actually came out!
8. I have seen a five minute clip of your film ‘Autism & Me’. Not only is it totally charming and enlightening but you also seem to have a 360 understanding of autism, not only from your own perspective but also on how it effects the people around you. With all the feedback you have had from the film what is your view of autism now?
Difficult question. I hope I have made Autism a lot easier to understand; Everyone is individual, and every Autistic Person on the spectrum is different and individual as well. If everyone had a little more understanding and patience with people who’s world is very different from their’s, then the world would be a much better place.
9. Do you see your future in music or film production?
Definitely the music! Even though I did produce a successful film and all my music videos are made by myself (except the one for I’m Ur MF with Kitten & The Hip, which was done professionally), the film-making is mainly just a hobby, though I have produced 38 of these short films, with some of them even being broadcast on BBC2 back in the days.
Music-wise, I have some really cool new releases on the schedule this year. Firstly on Freddy Fresh’s Howlin’ label, I have re-recorded the track, ‘1929’ from the ‘Sketching Shadows’ album (which was released last November) with multi-instrumentalist, Sylvain Carton, and this is going to be released as a single with some remixes. I have also remade a tune I did with a Dutch DJ friend of mine, Floyd Crystal called ‘What Can You Do’, which will be released in March on Tall House Digital. I am also working on more stuff with these guys, and a major French Promoter has picked up on the I’m Ur MF Single I did with Kitten & The Hip, and will be promoting it heavily in France, Belgium and Switzerland (Freddy Fresh did an amazing remix for the single!). I’m lucky in that I often have tracks in Beatport, Juno Download and Traxsource Charts - some have actually got to Number 1, I’m working on another Big Beat E.P. I would love to have my first (proper) Top-40 Hit somewhere in the world or would love to get a track on a film, TV Show or advert, so wish me luck on that!
10. Please give your current top 10:
These are the tunes, I’ve been playing out the most, but I have a top 500, really.
Rory Hoy - Ready, Set, Go!
Rory Hoy & Floyd Crystal - What Can You Do (Floyd Crystal Remix)
Tonic - The Way
Rory Hoy VS Kitten & The Hip - I’m Ur MF (Freddy Fresh Remix)
