Another year, another time slot. 5-7pm local time on a Monday now, which should be good for those of you chained to your workstations or avoiding the floating bridge logjam.

Good things are in store for Seattle electronica fans in the coming few weeks. There's the SEA vs PDX laptop battle at Chop Suey on Jan 23rd. I'm playing some records at the Fourthcity Weekly the following Monday, and remember it's these guys who we have to blame for the whole laptop battle phenomenon.

Then on Saturday the 31st Jan, is what could be the best show Seattle has seen in a long time: Convergence with Monolake headlining, and a preposterous wealth of North West talent in support. It's almost silly how good the line-up for this show is. And cheap too! Remember that this is a benefit for the Decibel Festival which will firmly put the Pacific Northwest on the global map for electronica. Coming to clubs near you in September.

So, as for the show, due to the fact that we're celebrating MLK's birthday, and the station is undergoing even more remodeling, the next one won't be until the 2nd of February. This will be the long promised NWelectronica special. Dope jams have been flooding in - I'm not even sure how I'll squeeze all the talent into two hours.

The following week, 9th Feb, will see a show celebrating two auspicious anniversaries which fall on the same day, Waitangi Day and Bob Marley's Birthday. I and I will treat we to da kiwi roots and riddims.
