I happened to be in touch in the last week, with two DJs from different worlds, who I like very much. Jamie Renton has an ear for mixing infectious dance oriented world sounds, and is a tireless organiser of live music and dj events. Last week I was lucky enough to be part of the 'DJ Relay' at his birthday bash, and this week's show starts with a reprise of my short set. Meanwhile, DJ Bus Replacement Service (Doris Woo) is a Far Side customer and one of the few people who shares my interest in North Korean music - she deejays wearing a Kim Jong-un costume. We also seem to share a love of bizarre Asian pop. Asked for some further dance floor quirkiness, here are a few tracks that might fit her DJ ethos of "I simply love playing bad and incorrect music at people for my own amusement." Check out https://www.mixcloud.com/jamie-renton/stream/ and https://soundcloud.com/deejaybrs/sets/bus-replacement-services. Full track listing http://www.farsidemusic.com/radio/071118_tracks.html
