matias aguayo is perfect for a day like this. it may be cloudy and cold outside, but his vitamin d inducing carnivale music makes me feel like doing a little sweaty samba.
it may have taken me a little while to get my head around the playful, warm carnival groove of 'ay ay ay' but im glad that i have now - getting a bit of latin sun in my headphones is nice.

seeing him play a kompakt warehouse party in st peters many moons ago was one of, if not the main force that got me into the world of minimal, techno and idm. he was an inspired performer that combined all forms of minimal, techno, house and 80's pop into such an intelligent and coherent set that i walked away with a renewed faith in djing as an artform.

grab 'ay ay ay' here if you need some friday spice.
if you are in melbourne tonight and missed the promo on waves at night, here it is again: the almighty todd terje is playing tonight at roxanne parlour! definitely an unmissable occasion for any one in the city with any sort of inclination toward disco, scandinavia, or balearia.
