August’s Back2Basics incl Get Down Edits interview

It is time to check in and catch up with Back2Basics, to see what happened in August

Acid House veteran Simon Palmer presents an eclectic mix of old skool house classics, trance anthems, acid house memories, forgotten gems, remixes, rare rave, unknown vinyl, as well as brand new vinyl, future classics and the out-of-the-ordinary, all go to make the eclectic cocktail that is Back2Basics. Only one thing is certain each and every week, that is that the show is 100% live and all the music is played on good old vinyl. Ireland’s only national all vinyl radio show, on RTE Pulse, Ireland’s only national dance music station. Low on chat and high on music, check out this month’s Back2Basics.

In the Shazam era you can normally know who the record is made by before it has even finished playing, so there’s no need to interrupt the music to announce whom the records are by. But if you need to double-check what the records played were, then just drop Simon a Tweet on @simonjohnpalmer, message him via Facebook by clicking her or Snapchat him at @palmer-simon
