Eddy Says: Best bits via the slopes

Our old friend Eddy TM has been keeping himself rather busy this week via a whirlwind tour of Europe’s ski resorts, where the skiers and snowboarders of the world are rather digging his DJ sets. So busy in fact, there’s not been time for a full Eddy Says this week, though he has sent in a quick update from the slopes, and we’ve also used this opportunity to revisit some of our favourite columns of old.

Dearly beloved…

This week I’m away playing at a couple of those things that make me think us DJs really do have the best job in the world: snowboard festivals.

Snow Kop in Serbia was first, I played last night, warming up for DJ Fresh and Messy MC. I know the Serbs love their rock so I treated it as a bit of a  rehearsal for my support slot with the Prodigy at Download later this year, road testing some big rock bomb remixes of the likes of System Of A Down and Slipknot (thank you Subsource!) in with some crowd pleasing favourites, like the Losers mix of Rage Against The Machine and Bassnectar’s big Pixies mix. It went down really well, so much so I’m even more pumped about Download now, and still so grateful to The Prodigy for asking me to support them.

Right now I’m en-route to the Big Snow Festival, where I’m appearing with Majestic, doing another genre-blending set of electro-moombo-dubstep-DnB. The journey has been made especially fragrant by the fact my bag is soaked in somebody else’s Serbian Schnapps. It appears as though several bottles of Rekija ruptured and spent several hours soaking into my clothes. The bus we’re driving towards the Italian alps on now smells like a Cooper Temple Clause tour vehicle!

Anyway, in my absence the nice guys at CMU are putting some of their Eddy Says favourites here, normal service will hopefully resume next week.


1. Let’s start with Eddy’s ode to the nice guy in music – the column that has generated more hits than any other column we’ve every published on theCMUwebsite.com! 

2. And now for some of Eddy’s ‘Uncle Ted remembers’ stories – like the time Eddy broke his neck on live TV.

3. And who could forget the story behind Ibiza Rocks – part one, two and three?

4. Then there’s Eddy’s recent excitement at drum & bass finally topping the charts.

5. And don’t forget last week’s tip filled music for the (real) new year column!

And finally, have you got your Secret Garden Party tickets yet?
