  • Brilo report: june 03

    June's Brillo was a little belated, due to a seven-day delay, which may account for a slightly reduced turnout but it certainly wasn't quieter as a result, quite the contrary, as several jeers during the voting session almost caused the limiter to cut the juice!

    The mood was set with a bit of controversy - Hip Hop on a Brillo night? Yes indeedy! Just to quell concerns that it's all obscurities and funk... Thankfully things settled down, a CD player was fetched and an old man helped across the street before Greg played a couple too, including some of his own compositions before the first session of shortlisting the nominated tracks for 'Black Cabs & London Fog' began.

    As many already know, each contributor puts up three tracks - they have to be British and they have to be good! - most were already burnt on an unmarked CD to help keep things secret, a couple more CDs 'mysteriously' appeared on the bassbin and a few Brilloites brought their choices on vinyl.

    A brief show of hands after each batch of three tunes sorted the shortlisting quickly and efficiently, except for Sermad's ongoing confusion as to what was going on - in general that is...

    There were a few split decisions and close second choices for tunes too good to get turfed out so quickly, so expect a bit more voting in July to settle the matter - which also gives a little more time for those unable to get the tracks in to, well, get their tracks in!

    Several of the nominated tracks will get an airing on Jonny Trunk's OST show on Resonance FM 104.4 FM or  this Sat 4:30-6:30pm GMT - which we've basically hijacked in the name of Brillo, not really.  Needless to say, all the tracks and the identities of who contributed them remain top secret, so don't ask!

    So without further ado, except to say that I saw an outsider in the corner tapping his feet all night, lets get to the playlist...

    Not everyone got their playlist in at time of posting (Fryer, your're crap) but it pretty much went like this:

    Nick's quick intro tone-setter

    Showbiz & AG - Diggin' in the Crates - Payday (Jap) 12"
    Beatnuts - Get Funky (remix) - Relativity 12"
    Ultimate Force - I'm Not Playing - Uni 12"

    Quick few from Greg Belson But I dunno what they were

    Voting tracks are still top secret at this time, though the ones that made it so far can be heard again on Resonance FM 104.4 FM or  this Sat at 4:30-6:30pm - as part of a fill-in for Jonny Trunk's OST show
