Mind Control

kaleidoscope // 1500-1700 16.04.12

yeah, mind control everywhere

Jai Paul's 'Jasmine' sets the tone for this episode of Kaleidoscope. Oozing in sexy synths with a funky bass line, the dangerously infectious track is just one of several new releases to feature on the show. The rattling and raw sounds of 'Mind Control' by Friends and tUnE-yArDs 'My Country' balance the fiesty and soulful sound of old favourites from the Flirtations and the Supremes. The return of Kaleidoscope this week also sees a new home at the Art School Union every 2nd & 4th Saturday, inspiration comes from the glitchy disco sounds of Savcloud & Kanoba as well as the extremely influential Washed Out. And finally after two months of talking about the woes of surgery and taking requests for songs about legs (erm, yeah...) the B side to 1981's 'Method of Dance' record takes place instead of our half an hour mix, with help from Japan, Magazine, Human League and Simple Minds to start pulling shapes again.

"Note, that if nothing else, the music of side two can certainly be used as a sex aid: admit that nothing is more real than nothing. Do you feel you're being led astray?" - Paul Morley on Methods of Dance side B.
