Wow! This place is kicking off again.. and new contributors too!

As some of you know, I am now living in the crazy sand-pit that is Dubai, where we've been graced by the likes of Elton John, Celine Dion, Santana, Shakira (which was a massive sell-out show), Tatu (all the things you said all the things you said running through my head) and next week Mariah Carey is playing in Dubai and the week after Bon Jovi is playing at Emirates Palace in Abu Dhabi.

I feel so musically challenged.

Thinking that maybe a good club night would sort that out.. having a quick scan through the weekly TimeOut guide, sift past all the MoS style club nights.. RnB Superclub stuff.. Rock cover bands.. Retro nights (VERY popular here.. think Bristol Arms steez).. you get DJs like Tiesto, Roger Sanchez, Mauro Picotto, Sharam, Armand Van Helden, Pete Tong, Morillo etc etc. I made sure I went along to check out Digweed when he was here in Feburary and it was just a massive let down. WAY too ploddy for ghetto club tainted cochleas (is that the right part of the inner ear??). Since then we've had Danny Howells, Hernan Cattaneo and Dirty South (I wasnt in attendance to rep for Aus).. not that I'm out to diss any of these acts, its just not my thang at the moment.

Then theres the Grooverider kerfuffle would be right to turn any touring DJ off..

And to add to my predicament, internet access to certain sites can be limited due to blocks and government censorship and bans.

Whats a girl to do?!

I am relying a lot on what other people tell/send me and the bits and pieces I get a chance to read about. When I went back to Sydney about a month ago, the sound of new music was just incredible! With non-censored internet access, I was once again scouring through blogs and music sites trying to find out what all the kids are listening to these days.

Then on Facebook, I noticed Euan, our friendly MajorLeaguer, had posted a link to a site called mUxtape (and to use his joke "No, I'm not a Kiwi"). You basically upload 12 mp3s (each no bigger than 10mb) and have all your friends listen to it. Its a pretty neat idea. One that I'd spent most of the afternoon mucking about with after grabbing a stash of new things.

My Effort:

Yo! Gabba Gabba

Fo' shizzle this is the real deal. A co-worker brought this Nick Jnr show to my attention yesterday and it's become an immediate favourite. Clearly aimed at kids up early & clubbers just getting home from a night on the tiles its got the freshest graphics and a music team that clearly has their ear to the ground.

Biz Markie even has a "beat of the day" section where he teaches kids how to beatbox.

The next generation of youngun's are gonna have the dopest taste in tunes!

Dopamine Returns with a Fresh New Bag!

Dopamine literally exploded onto the scene with his debut release “Hold You” which took out best single at the International Breakspoll Awards at Fabric in London in 2006.

Now's he's just returned from an extensive European Tour, and nestled amongst his "Best Single" Breakspoll Award and his press coined "Golden Touch", there lies a secret weapon.

It's a new mix, which taking influence from the far reaches of the globe, shows how Dopamine's sound has changed dramatically. Now featuring a blend of fidget, tech & minimal, he has mixed, re-edited and re-packaged them to make them his own.
