    Default John T. Gast

    I like this guy. There's something about him that stands out, he's a bit like AFX in that he has this weird, rural British mysticism to him and likes to use pictures of the countryside, druid shit and animals, plus his tunes are good; some oddball mixture of dub, grime, techno and weird celtic music.

    Kind of thing you can leave looping for hours.

    ha, I pre-ordered that CD this morning!

    I like his stuff, can't really place it. the gossiwor single "domestic saga #2" is great too, very cinematic.

    I'm gonna wait to hear the full thing, but love this one.

    I buy so few physical albums/cds nowadays that I figure I'll just take the chance on pre-orders from artists who I like.

    are you familiar with the BUS website?: http://www.bus-editions.com

    Lots of free downloads. some of it's a little too weird even for me but some decent things.

    Yeah, I've got the three Roots & Destruction mixes he did for them and one or two other things.

    good stuff. long time dean blunt connection like other guy said.
    some good mixes here https://www.mixcloud.com/discover/john-t-gast/
    and there's all the old 'republic of many voices' nts sessions that are on mixcloud as well: https://www.mixcloud.com/discover/rpblc-of-many-voices/
    I'm not sure if that's him tho?

    i've always preferred lord tusk, but still listen to most of what john t gast puts out. i should love it, but for some reason it's not quite the thing for me.

    Is there a connection between Lord Tusk and Gast? Only thing I know about Tusk is the "Day Tripper" cd, what else is good?

    weirdly, this is sort of part of the attraction. I feel I haven't quite cracked Gast, haven't yet figured out exactly where he's coming from. As a music fan for so many years, that inability to pin him down prompts me to investigate further, to listen more in order to solve the mystery. It's rare to find an artist who you can't place, it both drive me nuts and intrigues in a good way.

    i don't think they make music together or anything, but both are what i would call acolytes of dean blunt, and are in his circle, i guess.

    the best lord tusk thing i've heard is this mix he did for BCR https://www.mixcloud.com/Shlomp/shlo...ord-tusk-live/ bit of a slow starter but i just love it when he gets on the mic.

    he's deffo patchy but some of his stuff is really good. saw him live once and it was also really good.
