Jolly Brolly

Jolly Brolly display a deft touch in this lurching dose of dubwise delights. Both heady and headsy.

What were your ideas or plans gong into the mix?

Our planning was only really based on a few songs that we’ve wanted to mix but haven’t been able to in a club context. Then we went from there.

What's it like playing as a duo? Do you each have particular quirks or traits?

Josh - it’s definitely good because Ollie can and will be brutally honest when something doesn’t work. And vice versa when it comes to Ollie's obsession for darude sandstorm remixes

Ollie - I think it is usually ok except for when Josh holds back my creative flow. He just doesn’t seem to understand the value of a well placed remix of darude sandstorm, but I guess creative differences are inevitable in a duo which pushes boundaries in the way we do.

Ok, what have been your favourite releases recently?

Josh - Taking the liberty of 3 months: Perko's Nv Auto or the new James Blake.

Ollie - Taking a liberty of 6 months: The Suspiria soundtrack by Thom Yorke or Twisted Love/About to Burst by Justin Cudmore

How about a set or performance you wish you could go back to and experience all over again?

Josh - Nicholas Jaar at Houghton

Ollie - Loefah at Glastonbury

Nico Jaar is known on occasion to play this absolute mini cheddar of a cheesy rave tune

A track you've always wanted to play out but never had the chance?

Josh - Cameo - 'She's Strange'

Ollie - Cute Heels - 'State of Mind (LA 4A Remix)'

Your dancefloor saver?

Josh - I'm not really in a position to say much but I played 'Ongie Bongie' once and it banged.

Ollie - Daniel Avery - 'Naive Response'

Your favourite club?

Both - Cirkus

(ed: Those Funktion-Ones tho)

The soundtrack for your funeral?

Both - Radiohead - 'Life in a Glasshouse'

And on a lighter note, the tunes you'll still be listening to in 50 years?

Josh - Fela Kuti - 'Zombie'

Ollie - Caribou (Manitoba) - 'I've Lived on a Dirt Road All My Life'
