Week four! Back! On time! An hour of awesome music for you mixed live by ME, right here in the Studio Of Dreams II on Hollywood Boulavard. Stick around to the end and get an exclusive listen to a brand new song myself and Fat Tony recorded here the other day. IT IS VERY WAVY!

The curse of publishing at 4am hit iTunes subscribers who were super early on the pickup accidentally got the un-mastered version without talking, so refresh your feeds to get the updated version!

Check below for the track-listing, check back next week for 005, and chuck me an email or a tweet to get a shoutout on the next one or make a request or whatever. If you’re enjoying the thing share it with your Nan and chuck us a review or a star rating on iTunes or Stitcher, that helps us get featured and stuff.

SPLASH!

Catch me DJing at Blind Dragon in West Hollywood every Saturday nite and now every Thursday we’re throwing the BRITROPICANA pool party at The Hollywood Roosevelt!

The first one was SUPER JOYFUL. My favourite bit was either Leona Lewis skanking like a warrior to my UK Garage mini set then coming over to tell me how much she was enjoying herself OR playing Super Fury Animals Fire In My Heart and Boo Radleys’ Lazarus as the sun set. CAN’T WAIT TO DO IT AGAIN NEXT THURSDAY! COME IF YOU’RE IN TOWN!

AKIRA THE DON HAPPY BIRTHDAY MORRISSEY

Right, I gotta go mix a SONG, might play it on next week’s show, it’s full blown Homerian. LOVE YOU GUYS! SPLASH!

PS – if you’re in town, you can catch me playing a gang of my favourite britpop and rock n roll records (and no doubt some rap music later on) at myself and fashion icon Tolula’s new night at The Roosevelt Pool, BRITROPICANA! This Thursday, May 21st!

I saw Ranking Roger on Saturday at Croissant Neuf after we played. Dude was BRILLIOR. Played loads of awesome tunes off of an Ipad and performed a bunch of his own tings, including an Andrew WK-solo-show-esque version of this.

TechCrunch reports:

If you’ve been to San Francisco in the past few months, you’ll know that the entire city is plastered with iPad advertisements. The situation is even more out of control now that it’s WWDC week and thousands of Apple developers are in from out of town. So one rogue group of artists decided to have a little fun.

The group Freedom From Porn has been going all around the city and altering the iPad ads to add a little porn to them. To be clear, these aren’t really explicit additions, instead, they’re more subversive. For example, see the Steve Jobs’ Facebook page below.

The group, which has this blog, is apparently doing this because they think Jobs’ take that the App Store should befree of porn is crap.

Anyone out there on the streets still seeing these or has Apple managed to take them all down?

Be sure to check out the video below.

Props to TheAlScott.
