Jimmy PenguinNew album Rust

What you may need to know…

01. Galway-based skratchologist and manipulator of sounds Jimmy Penguin unleashes Rust, his fifth (!) long-player this year.

02. He’s been throwing them out on the DL, and moving in a more techno/minimal direction all the while, including collab albums with fellow Galwegian Acidfeen and DJ Chile. Find his discography here, much of it free/donations.

03. Streaming above is Rust, a platter of wonky, alien breaks and beats released a week or two back.

04. When not constantly moving his own game forward, he also runs Alkalinear Recordings, an online label dedicated to left-of-centre electronics. He’s also a co-founder of Galway’s annual Community Skratch Games.

Verdict: Forward-thinking, fearless and p-p-prolific as of recent, JImmy Penguin shows ’em how it’s done.

    I think I saw that fella at a house party around ten years ago in galway.
    It was yer standard two in the morning party, Dutch gold, buckfast, hash and yokes, and also the standard decks in the kitchen with someone poorly mixing techno.
    Then in comes this pale guy with a case of vinyl who starts scratching which was nothing most of us had ever seen and it was mesmerizing.

    Always remember that, wonder is it him. I’ll listen later. I miss DJ Shadow.

      No great shakes since the Private Press though, I lost interest with whatever the name of the one that came after that.

    I’m sure he’s an excellent DJ but that is tuneless muck.

    Also – Shadow’s new album is very good

      What was the one after Private Press? It wasn’t all cut and paste like his other stuff, I remember that and not being overly impressed.
      I’ve seen him live though, brilliant. Also anything by Cut Chemist if you like that style

    I’ll never forget a place I was working had a dj comp. night. One cheeky fecker stuck on the first Too Many Dj’s cd and gave a woozer of a mime on the disks … cheekiest silliest most dissilusional fecker I’ve ever seen.

      Isn’t there only one “official” release of their mixes? “As heard… pt. 2”
      All the other parts are around online and well worth checking out

          Haven’t actually listened to them in ages. Got a bit fed up when they kept coming back here doing the same live sets over and over
