    D:U:LIVE is coming in June! My first live shows since 2013.... London / Bristol / Manchester - all tickets: scubaoficial.io/live
    Is it possible for the music to do the talking in 2024?
    Maybe, but probably not the extent that Paranoid London managed it for the first few "vinyl-only, no interviews" years of their career. Quinn joins us on this episode for a chat that includes a lot more laughter than usual for an episode of this podcast. But that's a good thing!
    And we talk about some interesting stuff too, like their new album, the effect of playing on big stages, how great London is right now, recording techniques... and a lot more.
    This is a good one, you're gonna enjoy it.

    #116 Ceri: Technique, vinyl, and Ibiza "You have to put your soul into the music"

    D:U:LIVE is coming in June! My first live shows since 2013.... London / Bristol / Manchester - all tickets: scubaoficial.io/live
    Ceri is a DJ, producer, Find Your Own Records label owner, and Find Your Own Sound music production masterclass host.
    A former resident of the legendary after hours party Jaded in London, she has really taken off on the circuit since the pandemic with recent debuts at Panorama Bar and Blitz Munich.
    She's also an Ibiza resident and a long-time participant in the scene there, with a full season as a worker under her belt... so we talk a lot about Ibiza in this episode.
    We also discuss technique vs creativity, selling vinyl in 2024, and the Kendrick / Drake beef... kind of!
    Check out her recent mix appearance on the Blitz Club podcast https://soundcloud.com/blitzclub/blitzcast-019-ceri

    #115 Cian Ó Cíobháin: 25 years of underground music on Irish public radio

    #115 Cian Ó Cíobháin: 25 years of underground music on Irish public radio

    D:U:LIVE is coming in June! My first live set since 2013.... London / Bristol / Manchester - all tickets: scubaoficial.io/live
    Radio is not something we've covered massively on the podcast to date but this week's guest is often (and somewhat lazily) referred to as the Irish John Peel, so this is a step towards rectifying that.
    Cian Ó Cíobháin has been curating his 5-nights-a-week show An Taobh Tuathail on the Irish state broadcaster RTE RnaG for 25 years. That longevity is an achievement in itself, but doing a great music show for that long is a very rare thing indeed.
    Originally from Gaeltacht in Co Kerry, he's been based in Galway since 1993, and has been a big part of the music scene ever since as a DJ and club promoter, bringing acts like Erol Alkan, Andrew Weatherall, and Justice to the city.
    Cian is a real legend of underground music in Ireland and it's great to have him on the show!

    #114 Laurent Garnier: Looking forward, "techno is about tomorrow, not yesterday"

    #114 Laurent Garnier: Looking forward, "techno is about tomorrow, not yesterday"

    D:U:LIVE is coming in June! My first live set since 2013.... London / Bristol / Manchester - all tickets: scubaoficial.io/live
    How could we possibly follow last week's episode with the techno legend Luke Slater? Well, with another legend of techno of course!
    Laurent Garnier is, in fact, and all-time great of dance music PERIOD. He was playing the Hacienda before acid house really got going. He can plausibly claim a large amount of the credit for the sound gaining popularity in France. And he continues to be one of the best DJs on the planet.
    So it's a slightly daunting prospect to welcome him to a humble podcast such as ours, but welcome him we absolutely do.
    Discussion topics include: what are the challenge facing the current scene, and the grounds for optimism. We talk about Paris as a dance music city, and the role of venues such as the Rex Club and Concrete. And we talk about his relationship with music, as a DJ and also as a producer.
    This is a great conversation with a man who many claim to be the GOAT. You're gonna enjoy it...

    #113 Luke Slater: What is techno? "Sometimes nothing happens... and that's the point"

    #113 Luke Slater: What is techno? "Sometimes nothing happens... and that's the point"

    D:U:LIVE is coming in June! My first live set since 2013.... London / Bristol / Manchester - all tickets: scubaoficial.io/live
    If you were discussing, as people sometimes do, the possible identity of ' the best techno producer of all time' then Luke Slater would surely be mentioned in that conversation. At least if I was involved in the debate it certainly would be.
    Is anything else necessary to say here?
    Well, he has a new album coming under his LB Dub Corp alias, which is usually closer to deep house and this time features vocals from Kittin, Robert Owens, and Paul St Hilaire amongst others.
    And we talk about techno, acid house, and the state of the current scene. What more could you want from an episode of the Not A Diving Podcast?

    #112 Doc Scott: DnB from Rage and Metalheadz to now, "it's all about the energy it creates"

    #112 Doc Scott: DnB from Rage and Metalheadz to now, "it's all about the energy it creates"

    D:U:LIVE is coming in June! My first live set since 2013.... London / Bristol / Manchester - all tickets: scubaoficial.io/live
    We haven't covered Drum n Bass anywhere near as much as I'd like. dBridge was an early guest, and we've also had Fracture, Chris from Hospital, and Krust. So that's not even 5% of the episodes so far, and DnB really is a fascinating topic.
    Doc Scott was there from the very start. A teenage attendee of acid house raves like Sunrise, he was on the dancefloor at Rage, and a regular on the decks at one of the most legendary club nights of all time of any genre - Metalheadz at the Blue Note.
    An important producer in the 90s, including the all-timer Shadow Boxing, he hasn't released a tune in over 20 years, but still runs his label 31 Recordings and DJs all over the world.
    We talk about the history of the scene, those acid house raves, the detailed story of the Rage - Jungle Fever - Speed - Metalheadz progression. And we get deep into the DnB scene today, which he regards as being as good as ever.
    This is a great conversation, and hopefully the first of more DnB coverage coming up!

Grumpy Brilliance

Paul leverages the decades of his high profile music career to get people from every corner of the music industry on his show and squeeze every drop of interesting conversation from them. Just enough grumpy comedy to make you laugh but an unmistakable curiosity about music, technology and everything in between.
