PODCAST #099: Movin’ on up

Well I’m glad THAT’S over. Many listeners may not know, but as my day-job I moonlight as a charismatic U.S Senator from the state of Illinois. And I was recently elected president of the United States. Who knew that would turn into such a big time-suck?

Anyway, I’m back at the TOMMYK mixing desk, but not for long… New Years 2009, I’m heading overseas to scout for un-signed Victoria’s Secret models and Baile Funk M.C talent in the favelas of Rio De Janeiro.

No for realz, I am actually moving to Rio. So let’s get this Sydney-side synth out while it lasts, before I expand the Lords into a trans-Pacific tag-team and import/export conglomerate. There’s focus on the “import”.

Make sure you check the new track from our mates Heads We Dance. “The Human Touch” should be in every DJ’s christmas stocking, just in time for New Years Eve. Daft and Justice-y goodness that tastes great!

PODCAST #098: Hard-hitting times…


Times are tough. If even the crack-laced burger clown is doing it lean, then you definitely know something’s up. Sub-prime lending has even effected the Lords – i’m living off burritos, sleeping in and drinking heavily… wait, i take that back – nothing’s changed. Though i haven’t seen TommyK in ages – he’s probably out man-whoring (“contracting”). Whatever he’s doing – it must be important, his room’s full of placards and fake tan. Maybe we’ll see a change soon…

PODCAST #097: Put some colour in your life…


Life can be so bland. Sometimes you need to add a bit of flavour to it. Chillies on your toast, rounds of tequila instead of beer, swearing at your grandparents, coughing up blood in the pool. Something to shake things up a little (or a lot). Unfortunately SynthLords.com won’t be that spice/blood/injection – we’re consistently average (with brief moments of radness regurgitated thru it).
