Noel Gardner’s Feed the DJ selection took place at Buffalo Lounge on June 28, with his choice of beats as diverse as you’d expect from a music journalist.
Noel is well known in Cardiff as a forthright commentator on music and noise with his day job as listings editor for Buzz Magazine, and has forged quite a reputation for putting on gigs in the city with his events company Lesson No.1
But, Feed the DJ is a chance for people like Noel to branch out and play music just for their own pleasure - and it turns out that Noel’s taste, which describes as “noisy or distorted or at extremes of tempo or socially irresponsible”, is actually far more accessible than that description projects.
The mix, which runs to just over half an hour, showcases some of the more contemporary colours of electronic music, with a nod to the core 808 sound that helped to popularise the genre.
