ssg special - SCB B2B John Osborn @ Panorama Bar
Having a recording each year of John Osborn doing his thing at a sub:stance party at Panorama bar has become a bit of a tradition here (2010 and 2011). And we are very happy to continue this in 2012, only this year it is a bit different, as it is a recording of John playing back to back with Paul Rose under his SCB guise. The SCB ssg mix we posted back in 2009 has been one of the most popular mixes we have hosted, and it proved to be an important early outing for Scuba under his SCB alias. So we are very happy to welcome back together two former contributors. Anyway, if you read this blog, chances are you know about Scuba and about John Osborn, so I don't think any further introductions are necessary. Just get ready for a fun, jacking party mix from two DJs at the top of their game.
This is what John had to say about it:
"Before the gig I was apprehensive about a B2B set with SCB at Panorama Bar for two reasons: one being that Paul Rose is a DJ of such high caliber, and second that I am quite a selfish DJ in the sense that I generally have my own plan and I like to lay that plan out and adjust it as I see fit. So I wasn't sure how this was going to work out at all, especially that it was at Panorama Bar! These apprehensions were laid to rest as it very quickly became clear that this B2B set was a very fluid process of reading each others track choices providing plenty of 'I'll set 'em up and you knock 'em down' moments. I think Paul later tweeted something like 'nothing like Panorama Bar & Berghain when it is on the point' - that pretty much sums up the set."

Unsurprisingly the boys are keeping themselves very busy. John's TANSTAAFL RECS has its second release out shortly, care of October. Meanwhile the TANSTAAFL NIGHTS is moving to Tresor Globus, with the first party on 23 June featuring a lineup made up completely of artists who have done ssg mixes: Kassem Mosse, October, Eric Cloutier and John. Obviously we approve... As for Scuba, he has recently released his album "Personality" and is continuing his quest for world domination and endless air miles.
Much thanks to John and Paul for letting us share this recording. Enjoy!
