“Swear I ain’t heard these riddims on this podcast before?” – Episode 039 – Bumpy UK Garage with DJ BrainZ

Yeah I watched Goatse. It was great.First of all, massive, MASSIVE shout out to everyone that’s been downloading the podcast.

This month I got an email from my service provider telling me I’ve managed to do 60GBs worth more of bandwidth than their own cluster of business sites combined. Guess what this is due to? That’s right, you guys.

Without me looking into it properly I didn’t realise that this podcast at the moment is a roaring success. There’s been over 13,000 downloads started via the podcast feed alone, with more downloads directly via the site.

I’m estimating right now there’s between 2000 and 2500 downloads of podcast episodes each month. That’s HUGE.

There was even a point last week were the podcast had an episode sitting in the iTunes chart. I don’t keep an eye on this closely enough because I didn’t expect to be on there, so this may not even be the first time. All I can say is thanks for getting me there.

If you want to help further, don’t forget you can leave iTunes feedback. The more comments and 5-star ratings I get will help increase the popularity of the podcast and therefore will push UKG forward that little bit more. I’ll really appreciate it if you could help. And I also love to hear feedback – good or bad.

Now, in addition to UKG reaching the masses in a way I never expected, we also have another initiative that kicked off just after my last live show. Those into UKG and follow it on the interwebs may have heard of the fabled UKG Dropbox started by Sub.FM’s very own DJ Para.

The dropbox has become a place for DJs and Producers to share their productions with each other to make sure all the right people are pushing the freshest music possible. There’s even some monster names that have jumped on board. And It’s a rip roaring success.

This week’s show is my first show since the dropbox went live. Every tune in the show is the first time I’ve played it out so you are in for a barrage of beautiful new music. Hectic.

Apologies for the crusty sound on some of the tracks. My CDJs are definitely on their last legs. I’m in the market for a MIDI controller with Traktor, so if you have any suggestions I’d love to hear them in the comments.

Thanks once again to everyone that’s made this podcast larger than Goatse‘s arsehole. And here’s to more UK garage every week!
