I’ve been spending the afternoon chilling on last.fm, listening to some really great music. For those of you that aren’t yet aware, lastfm is the latest craze and is a very futuristic music site. it can be linked to current social networking applications like myspace, facebook and indeed here…. There are lots of interesting features to the site… the main point is that it gets good music to you and is very much consumer orientated as well as being most excellent for artists. If you sign up there please be sure to search for Wez G. One of the interesting features of this revolutionary site is the charts it generates. it scrobbles all the music you play through your computer and then produces charts and generates neighbours with similar tastes. I’ve benn on the site a couple of months now and here is my overall listening chart to date. As you see, i listen to far too much ABBA and Madonna to pass myself off as a credible house music DJ! It can be embarrassing but it’s fun! Just try it out and then I can tell when you’ve been listening to Boyzone…
Listen to Wez G – Seeking Salvation byWez G on hearthis.at Vision: In a bleak desert. Sand swirling. Wind churning. A city beckons. It is vast, black, towering. It lies near to the edge of the desert and seems to be calling me in. What does it mean? Is this civilisation? This journey takes you through temptation on the road to salvation. Do we need to resist the civilisation that calls? Is this the electronic cyberworld of the future? Is it the destiny of man or do we stay in the wild desert away from the terrors of this unknown world? :::TRACKLISTING::: Gus Gus – Believe (16B Remix) [White] Trentemoller & DJ Tom – An Evening with Bobi Bros [Global Underground] M People – How Can I Love You More?

Listen to Wez G – Snake In My Head byWez G on hearthis.at About 18 months ago I was walking along the street in my local village in South Wales when I felt a large snake’s skull on the back of my head. I have occasional Shamanic experiences. I couldn’t get the thing off me and went on a bit of a mad journey where I went off several huge cliffs into some serpent nests and in a shamanic state, to help me out, I linked up with some other medecine men across the globe. I ended upin an African tribal village where they chopped the head off the snake but the guy who did it warned me that the thing would stay with me for a while. So I thought I’d revert to the beat of the drum and try and drive the damn thing out with a nice session on the wheels of steel. Have a listen and do battle with the reptile with me. Whack it with a stick or something… (By the way – WEZ G IS NUTS!) But I speak the truth, honestly!!! In my world it never gets dark… :::TRACKLISTING::: 1.

Don’t you just love it when we’re completely written off by all the media and opposition fans? I swear, I love it because I know we’ll play really well. half -time Istanbul they all did it. They did it when we were beaten by Burnley a few years ago and we won European Cup. Everyone says sack Rafa and we beat Europe’s best team. Who needs murky saturday afternoons at Barnsley when you can be playing at world’s showcase game in Moscow. Priorities, Priorities. Yeah – sure Mancs and Chavs will prove yet again that they’re better than us at beating Bolton and Blackburn, but we’ll be there when it matters. Cream always rises to the top and Liverpool yet again prove that they’re world beaters…Trust in Rafa. Rafa’s got his Dirk Kuyt!!! YNWA!
The heyday when this video was taken is long over… Luckily enough, I made it to Istanbul for the Champions League Final in 2005 when Liverpool beat AC Milan in the greatest game of football ever to have been played. It was the best time of my life. For a Liverpool fan , it’s all about winning trophies and they don’t come any bigger than ole big ears… (Read in the facebook group about Hungary for Turkey, my trip to Istanbul http://www.facebook.com/group.php?gid=8280656361) I am at odds with myself about posting Liverpool stuff in my blog. At the end of the day, whereas I know there are many avid fans out there. , I realise that for the majority of you, you support other clubs and the last thing you wish to read about is Liverpool FC. Anyway, Liverpool play a huge part in my life so I’d be dishonest if I didn’t include the occasional article here in the Wez G blog… Just grin and bear it. It helps hearing about football success from time to time . And your clubs might be able to learn from the greatness of Liverpool. They are, after all, indisputably, the best side in British football. I can just see the grin on Manc faces as they read this. Yes – Last weekend Liverpool lost to lowly Barnsley in the FA Cup. I admit it – we were very poor. Yes – we’re having a bad season. We are still a club in reconstruction. Europe is our only hope this season. And Europe it is tonight. AC Milan’s blue cousins, Inter, are the best side in Europe this season. They are the only side in Europe to still be unbeaten. They strike the fear of God into me. But we have faced adversity before. I just hope that our players produce their A-game tonight. We need the hunger of Stevie G , the ruthlessness of Carragher and the sheer dominance of Fernando Torres. We need the manager to have a clear head. I am a huge fan of Rafa and will never call for his head. NEVER. Not after Istanbul. He can lose to Accrington Stanley every week as far as I’m concerned. Trust in Rafa is the motto. I can, however, see how he’s under pressure and a poor result for Liverpool to night could mean curtains for the gaffer. Since Paco left…
As this blog progresses you’ll get to learn more about Shuffle and what exactly we do. It isn’t always very clear, even to me, and I’ve been running Shuffle since 1995. Anyway, 2008 sees the year where we are focussing a lot of our energy on Shuffle artist management. One of the gems we deal with here is Tricia Lee Kelshall. Tricia is a Trinidadian singer who currently resides in Texas, USA. Her initial steps to stardom were with Soca band, Second Imij. Following that Tricia did two world tours with the Stereo MCs, an awesome band , I’m sure you’ll agree. Tricia’s entrance to the house music scene involved a collaberation with Bristol best house music band, Way Out West. Mindcircus was a massive hit for them and the icing on the cake to their Intensify album. Tricia went on to tour the world with Way Out West before settling down with her new husband and starting a family. Tricia is now back on the scene. And all shuffled up! We’re pleased to be working with such class and have been focussing on ensuring that Tricia will be working alongside some of the best producers and remixers in the industry for future releases. There is a new myspace for Tricia here… http://www.myspace.com/tricialeekelshall There will be forthcoming projects, i’m pleased to say, and the reason I’m all excited today is that I’ve had a sneak preview of some of the forthcoming work. All I can say is that you can expect 2008 to be a good year for Tricia. I wouldn’t be at all surprised if she doesn’t release one of the house music hits of the year and that isn’t just blind pride and bias talking. I am an experienced DJ and assure you that there is some good stuff on its way… I obviously can’t say too much on the detail at the moment until releases are confirmed but I will release public information through the Shuffle websites as soon as possible. SO Stay Tuned and we look forward to giving you aural pleasure! Here is Mindcircus by Way Out West featuring Tricia Lee Kelshall

I’m still unsure exactly what to be doing with my blog… Do I keep it to just music? Or football? Or everything in my life? My idea of a blog is an online diary, somewhere to air your thoughts. I guess sometimes that thinking can be controversial. The blog is new but news happened yesterday and a new European country was ‘created.’ Now gentlemen should never discuss religion or politics and one of my aims in life is to carry the grace of a true English gentleman, a dying breed in today’s morally mixed-up world. but there we go… rules are made to be broken… I wanted to briefly talk about Kosovo as I went to Serbia in 2005 and it made a deep impact on me. I passed through on my way back from Istanbul in 2005 post-champions league final. The full story of that journey can be read here on the facebook group ‘Hungary for Turkey’ http://www.facebook.com/group.php?gid=8280656361 I met lots of Serbs and they were particularly welcoming. There is a lot of good history between Britain and Serbia apart from the NATO airstrikes during the Yugoslavian conflict in the 1990s. Racially, the Serbs claim to be true Celts which with me being from Wales, lent them an affinity to me… My ideas on the Balkan conflict weren’t clear but I know that in general in the Western press the Serbs come across somewhat as the villains of the piece. Now , all I can say is that there were undoubtedly some serious atrocities committed during and indeed after the whole conflict. It was one of the messiest civil wars in European history. However, all sides committed atrocities. Such, unfortunately , is the nature of war. I read and studied quite a lot on Serbia and can recommend the book by Tim Judah: The Serbs for some decent background knowledge. Regarding Kosovo, I was told stories by many natives during my stay., in particular an Orthodox monk, who sold me some icon cards of the Kosovan monasteries, at Belgrade train station. The Serbian people were saddened by the ongoing international presence in their ‘historical backyard’. Most of Serbia’s precious historical buildings and monuments are located in Kosovo and it is a very important historical area to their proud nation. What happened is that the Ethnic Albanian population living in Kosovo through a higher natural growth rate, became the dominant…

This is a blast from the past. I recorded it in November 2005 though it contains tracks from much earlier. I named the mix after the massive waves that roll into Tahiti which lays claim to being the place where surfing began. It recreates part of the six hour set I did when I played at Tikisoft in Papeete, the capital of French Polynesia. It was a perfect day. The sun was shining. I went swimming with the sharks and stingrays in the morning and then got stuck into the island’s decks for a marathon set. The mix is summery and reflects the sounds of one of the earth’s best untouched paradises. House Music. It’s a global groove… :::TRACKLISTING::: 1.Late Night Alumni – Nothing Left to Say [Hed Kandi] 2.Hysterix – Talk to Me [Deconstruction] 3.Seelenluft feat.

Listen to Wez G – Live @ Mi Casa, Journeys, Cardiff 11.06.04 byWez G on hearthis.at I said I’d pepper the podshow with the occasional mix from the vaults. This is a rare occasion when I dug out the minidisc player and managed to record a Wez G live set. The venue is Journeys, Cardiff, the night , Mi Casa, the year 2004. It was a peak time mix and the crowd were having it!!! There is no track listing. I remember that my set starts with an Eddie Amador track on Yoshitoshi and finishes with an old Q:Dos classic, Nocturnal Spirit… Good times…. Enjoy!
