DC Hooker (Broken Hookers) Mix for 'Tourist'.


Reet then, another in our ongoing 'local zeros' series this week as we travel a tad further south of the Tyne than we usually would to a small town in Yorkshire by the name of Middlesbrough. Old friends of ours and former residents at the original 'Tourist' night, Darren and Jay have played together as The Broken Hookers for more than 5 years now and during that time they've had their mixtapes played on various Radio Shows, won a competition or two, held residencies for the likes of Club NME, Turnmills, Sugarshack and Polaroid whilst making noteworthy appearances at venues/nights such as Get Loaded In The Park/Together, Adventures In The Beetroot Field, Dirty Disco and have been guests at Radio 1's Big Weekend and the Modular Tour Parties. As well as being involved with festivals such as the 'Lake Of Stars' festival in Africa, 'Snowbombing' and 'Pangae' playing along side the likes of Joakim, Optimo, The Juan Maclean, Clor, Shit Robot, Matthew Dear, Ladytron, The Glimmers, Athur Baker, Headman and a load more.
As well as their live deck duties, the chaps also run the ever popular 'ArePeopleReal' series, their world renowned Podcast. It runs on bi-weekly Thursdays and opened it's doors to the public on February 1st 2007. Along with their own mixes (Broken Hookers) they invite the most exciting talent and acts around to take part in the show (in the form of guest mixes). The show also runs special features and interviews each week, along with a few little surprises thrown in for good measure! Past guests have included Pilooski, In Flagranti, Crazy P, Ali Renault, Skull Juice, Haedman and most recently the Ooft Records lads.
You can subscribe to the 'ArePeopleReal' podcast here and check out the Broken Hookers Website here.
Darren has been kind enough to take time out and provide us with this mix for our 'Local Mixes' series and no souch it is too. Chugging it's way through some party jams and house heavy weights it touches base with some recent fave's and welcome suprises. Hope you enjoy it!
