The Twelves / Ticket Giveaway

The Twelves are comin’ to town!!!! These guys have pumped out some of my favourite remixes of the past couple years and many are calling them the next Daft Punk. I’m not sure about the comparison but their glorious BBC Essential Mix speaks for itself. I’m giving away two tickets to their Feb 4th show here in Vancouver, who wants them?

    Drop It Tough, Seven, I’m Not Gonna Teach Your Boyfriend, Take On Me (A-Ha) – they are all great!

    But the track that really gets me, and when I’ve had the privilege to drop it for a dance floor is: Cicada – Metropolis (Twelves Remix) 2009.

    Stunning track, awesome break & bass line with nice female vocal ta boot!

Good News of the Day: Army of 1,000 Ducks Used as Brilliant Pesticide Alternative

Ducks

South Africa’s Vergenoegd vineyard in Stellenbosch keeps a flock of over 1,000 Indian Runner ducks to help combat tiny white dune snails that would otherwise destroy the budding vines. The ducks’ upright and slender posture allow them to navigate the rows of plants, clearing up to a hectare a day.

While the cost of keeping all these ducks is significantly higher than standard pesticides, the duck army is so effective that the vineyard uses minimal chemicals and is recognized for its sustainability. See more images by London-born, Cape Town-based photographer Mike Hutchings and a video of the ducks working below!
