ok, this post is a bit of a one off. I’m currently working on a new project, a project called MISMATCH. The idea has been sitting in my head for maybe a year or two now, but it’s only taken until recently to get my arse into gear and attempt to make this thing a reality.

Helping me get this thing started are two really amazing Melbourne based music writers. The first, Sabi, runs the inventively titled Sabi’s Aus Music Blog. She is also a superstar running her own publicity and management org Maths and Magic. The other wonderful person helping out is Lauren from Electric Skeleton. She’s a really great writer and has a killer ear for good stuff.

So, anyway, Mismatch is going to be all about Melbourne based artists/djs/producers/everything else. It’s a mismatch (haha…geddit?!) of the various sounds that can be found right across Melbourne.

It would be wonderful if you could give the facebooks ( and the twitterzzz ( a follow.

The site is going to be launching super soon and we’re all pretty excited about it. Hopefully you people out there will be too!

And to finish, a Melbourne dude doing some crazy good production. SKINIMIN is part of the RaRaKIN hip-hop collective and does this teasing glitchtronica that still has quite a warm, and at times soul kinda feel. This is the kinda stuff that’s gonna get a run on Mismatch. That, and a whole heap of other amazing stuff.



ok. So I guess it’s time to come clean. Divulge it all.

This here blog is actually just written by one person, not one dude and all his friends. That person would be me (obviously), Miks. Although some would say then that the title of this blog is just a tiny bit misleading, I would say, shut the hell up. Yeah.

Nah, actually, I would kinda agree with you, but then argue that my music taste is so eclectic that I feel as though i’m reflecting the taste of a group of people, not just one person. And to be serious, that was the intention all along. I have a pretty darn eclectic music taste and the name Me, and All My Friends suited it.

I have occasionally had a few mates post (Alikitti, JL, and Nath – thanks dudes), but this has been so rare, and not regular at all. Alikitti has done a few posts and JL and Nath have done one each.

Hopefully this truth telling will mean no more emails saying ‘Hope you and all your friends dig my new track.’

It’ll probably just lead to people emailing me saying ‘Hope you dig my new track. PS. I always knew it was just you.

There was another point to this post though. As well as posting a killer track, and the startling revelation above, I’m also putting a call out for ‘friends’. Not actual friends, but writers, contributors, etc. As I said a few posts ago, I started a new job a while ago and finding the time to post regularly is becoming harder and harder.

What I’m after ideally is one or two extra writers that can help share the load. I’d love to keep the blog up to one post a day, but I know how hard that can be. Even if people post once a fortnight, it’s still a help. So, what you can do is either email me directly ( @ or you can fill in the tiny form below.

First up though, the track. Although I haven’t posted that regularly of late, I have gone on a bit of a download and purchasing spree. One of the albums I’ve bought recently has been Seekae’s newy +DOME. It’s still growing on me (it’s a bit diff to their debut), but one of the standout tracks would have to be Gnor. You can stream that one down below.

Seekae – Gnor


New Music First #3

ok. So I have been listening to a few pretty cool tracks lately. A lot of them are thanks to Launchpad Uplate on Nova here in Melbourne (I think this show is national too though. Something like 10-1130 Monday to Thursday nights). Others are thanks to HypeMachine. Gotta love it. Anyway, here’s my list.

  • Coin Laundry – Lisa Mitchell (This is fresh – downloaded this morning. I’m not sure about it yet. I like it, but I think it’s gonna have to get a few more listens till I make up my mind)
  • Your Call – Hermitude Feat. Urthboy and Alana Stone (I know I put this up last time, but it is still on high rotation. The beginning of the track is damn sweet and the little “I get confused making my mind up. Are you the fuse that could light me up” line in the middle is too darn catchy.)
  • The Lighthouse Song – Josh Pyke (Finally decided I needed this album and I’ll finish downloading it when I get home tonight. This track is pretty good too!!)
  • Pool Party 2009 – Shazam (New up and comer DJ/Remixer guy from Perth. Pretty disposable but still, is a sweet tune.)
  • You’ve Got A Lot Of Nerve – Red Riders (Heard this on Launchpad last night. Great track.)
  • I’m Not Alone – Calvin Harris (Sounds different to his other stuff which I like. Somebody said it had more of an underground/indie disco sound. I think parts of it do, but the rest is just his trademark commercial dance/trance kinda stuff._
  • Always Like This – Bombay Bicycle Club (Heard this on Hype Machine Radio this morning (you can check out Hype Machine Radio here – they do a weekly podcast and basically just put together the most popular tracks of the week.)
  • Shooting Stars – Bag Raiders (my mention of bag raiders in the Bonnie Prince post, was because it was about the only other thing I was listening to at the time. And, they haven’t left the iPod)
  • Lion (Bag Raiders Remix) – ZZZ (ZZZ did a remix of Bag Raiders’ track Fun Punch a while ago and made it into a crazy psychotic piano driven track. Listen to it. It will make you nuts! This track is really good though – Bag Raiders returning the favour.)

Short list this time around. Still, there is some good stuff there. Any suggestion about tracks I should check out? Post a comment and let me know!

K. That’ll do the ramble for now.
