the nextmen...

If you haven't heard of The Nextmen, then my goodness you are in for a treat. They've been a top 5 of mine for a long while now, their "Child's Introduction to Jazz" and "Personal Golf Instructions" mixes having been part of the soundtrack to my life for more than a couple of years. 
Mixing and mashing up everything from funk to hip hop, dancehall to drum and bass, they've also produced tracks with some of the UK (and the world's) finest including Alice Russell, Niney the Observer and Commix, among others.
Anyway, while searching for their summer tour dates I came across their series of podcasts which have been running since late last year. Awesomeness! 
The below photos are from August 2008; my first live Nextmen experience while working at the Boardmasters surf contest in Newquay. A soulful live performance from UK soulstress Zarif and an introduction to the High Contrast remix of Pjanoo will be forever burned into my brain!
