Taking Down UK Garage Can Cause PR Nightmares – Episode 141 – Bumpy UK Garage with DJ BrainZ

Brainz Soundboot

So you may have caught on the madness that I caused for Soundcloud over the past 2 weeks. I got a LOT of coverage, and all I wanted was my account back. Read up on my story here. Basically – my advice is don’t upload mixes to Soundcloud. Stick to Mixcloud instead.

Speaking of Mixcloud – if you’d like to help support the Brainz, please vote for me in the Mixcloud radio show awards here. That would be jolly good if I won!

Big tunes this week. Stupidly huge show.

Big up.

P.s. Special thanks to Tom Merritt from the Daily Tech News Show for the coverage.

All I wanted was to keep my account… Soundcloud & Universal drove me to it

For the TL;DR version – read the original Do Androids Dance article by Nappy, or the ultra turbo version on BoingBoing

As featured on:

Do Androids Dance Mixmag BoingBoing TorrentFreak
And all these other places… (+) Techdirt Billboard Dancing Astronaut

So pretty much all day I’ve been grinning from ear to ear. It’s an evil grin. A grin of vengeance. I feel like I’ve stuck it to the man, and the same time stabbed one of my friends in the back.

I shared the story of my Soundcloud account getting cancelled over copyright infringement, and it’s gone viral. Searching Twitter for the words “soundcloud universal” at this moment in time is returning a constant stream of tweets talking about this. Facebook shares of all the articles covering this have gone into the 10s of thousands.

When I threatened Soundcloud that I was going to the press, I wanted this much coverage, I just didn’t think it was going to happen. And all of this has happened because I wanted to promote the music that I love for the artists that make it happen.

UPDATE: Soundcloud have now issued statements directly to Mixmag and Billboard.com on the whole ordeal, which read like a copy/paste from their terms of service.

UK Garage With A Glass Of Straight Vodka – Episode 140 – Bumpy UK Garage with DJ BrainZ

So I’ve started to go full dickhead when I’m out. I’m mainly drinking straight vodka. Last night I went as far as buying a bottle of Grey Goose “for the table.” Yeah I yammed most of that shit. And I’m now a proud owner of one of the worst hangovers I’ve ever had.

Here’s the only photo I managed to take last night. It’s an interesting mashup of my colleagues and you can see the cunt flag in the bucket on the table.

What has this got to do with anything? Well, I had a hangover when I recorded this show. There you go.

Loads of big, new tunes. Plus first spin of my Fly Bi Nu Bass mash up. RIP MC Sparks.

Also got some studio footage for you too! Recorded on my new, fancy Google Glass.

Big up.

Copyright Infringing UK Garage – Episode 139 – Bumpy UK Garage with DJ BrainZ

Not Sure If Art, Or Copyright Infringement So I’ve just been notified of my 3rd strike on Soundcloud for copyright infringement which means they’re going to close my account.. Great. All for uploading my radio show. Yet, there are numerous mixes of the same nature all over Soundcloud on “Big Named” DJs and Producers Soundcloud pages. They took my fucking money and still said “You know what, fuck you. We give big names a pass but you can violate yourself with a wide television remote control and spin on it”.

Thanks Soundcloud.

Good job they’re not the only place you can get my radio show, eh. This week’s show was lively. Enjoy.

Birthday Bizness, Amsterdamage Warm Up – Episode 137 – Bumpy UK Garage with DJ BrainZ

amsterdamge

My gosh. It’s so close. I can’t wait till Thursday. That’s when we fly out to Amsterdam for 10 Years Of Bass. It’s going to be so sick.

This show is a warm up to next week’s damage in Amsterdam. It was also my birthday show, so I thought I’d do my best to demostrate what happens when you try to play an old school set without preparing for it (spoiler alert: it’s a clangy mess).

Start of the show was absolutely savage though. Definitely check it out.

Big up.

Jesus Loves UK Garage – Episode 135 – Bumpy UK Garage with DJ BrainZ

easter-zombie-jesus_1396595932 Easter is a special time of year. It’s when we remember that once upon a time, magicians were revered as holy, instead of throwing food at them like David Blaine. It’s also the time we remember that The Walking Dead could still totally happen, as a guy did come back from the dead once.

Just remember, according to The God, Jesus Loves UK Garage. And it must be true because you can get it on a t-shirt.

Big up,
