The City Rises #097 with special guest Ben Houghton

This week we had local producer Ben Houghton on the show for a 40-minute live set from his MPC2000XL, hand-made 808-kick and laptop. Ben is part of the This Thing collective in Melbourne and has been putting out soulful biz for some time now. Click on the links to check out his soundcloud, facebook and This Thing.

Rambl provided some wicked business in the first hour with tunes from Bullion, Thomas William, Onra, Kloke and Shake. Unfortunately his hard drive was in the process of dying and so a few old tunes had to be played in place of new ones and there were some rather tricky attempts to copy songs from the disk before it once-again ejected itself during the show which made for some hair-raising moments. Ahh, technology, when it works it’s a dream…
