interview and mix put up by teshno.com…

The lovely people at teshno have decided we’re worth hearing about and have put up an interview with a recent mix. I think we were supposed to send through some photos of ourselves but I guess if you read the interview you’ll find out just how poor we are at promoting ourselves. Sorry teshno – please accept our public apology… and our thanks for caring about who we are and what we do.

btw if you’re into techno type music and stuff, teshno deserves a bookmark on yer browsa bruv… blap!

from the vaults…

Here we are again and it’s the second post in as many days. Yesterday was our busiest day yet and I’d like to thank everyone that’s paid a visit to the Bankwell blog so far. It’s been far more successful than we imagined and as long as you keep coming, we’ll keep posting.
Today we have the first side of a vintage Kamo mixtape. Recorded in late 2001 on our trusty Zoom 10 track, it was the product of many months of hard work and, aside from a few little bits, sounds utterly charming to my ears today. The sound of two kids (I was about 15 and Liam was 18 or 19) trying to make a tape that measured up to their heroes.
The inheritance of “The Muppet Show” vinyl soundtrack from our recently departed Auntie Pat was the catalyst.  We were given about three crates of records stacked with Dean Martin, ‘Ol Blue Eyes and Boz Scaggs (why is “Silk Degrees” always tucked away in every old crate of records I’ve seen?), with battered copies of The Muppets 1 and 2 perched among the dust and crooning – With this we re-jigged the famous Muppet Theme Tune for the intro and lovingly interweaved skits from the record with tracks by Nas, Kool Keith, Pharcyde and a host of other mid-nineties hip-hop royalty. Not bad for a couple of kids. In fact, listening back to the Muppets soundtrack, we may just have to do a sequel.

So here it is in all it’s naive glory…

Bankwell Vol.1

We love mixtapes.

Ten years ago we started Dj-ing and ever since we’ve been stringing tracks together on tapes, cd’s, digital mixers and dusty old four-tracks.  Now after a decade technology has caught up with our imaginations and the Bankwell series is what has evolved.

We’re not stringing tracks together anymore.  We’re tearing them apart, stuffing them into the Ableton blender and pouring out beat puree.  Four bars of this, a little bass to taste, some yelping, a location recording, a whole lot of effects and you get the idea.  This is just as much a production process as it is a DJ set.

Hopefully the tracks on this mix are enough to whet your taste-buds, ear-buds, ass-buds and feet-buds.  It sure works for us.

Enjoy.
