Base jumping hangs out with Superman and has babies. Skimming close to the ground at speeds of over 100MPH, this video shows some new lines, as well as exploring the team dynamic.

These guys are remarkable.

Grand Canal Soundscape : January 2012

I have spent the last two days recording the sounds of Dublin’s Grand Canal; from Portobello Bridge to Leeson Street Bridge. I have always been amazed by the water, since a kid I have beed fascinated by its almighty strength and placid stillness in equal measure. The recording below focusses on a small section of the Canal where swans, boats and humans  all occupy the same serene space amongst the busy back drop of the capital city.

RIP Sabotage! on 2XM

Dear all,
This is a quick note to say that Sabotage on 2XM is no more.
After 2 years I feel as though it is time to move on and put my energy in to other projects that I am excited about.
Thanks to all of you who listened and supported the show while it was on.And thanks to the gang at 2XM for giving me the chance to do what I love to do. I’ll be keeping the blog here at The Lost Continent and uploading some of my own podcasts etc.

All the best, Steve

Olympus iSpeed 3

Below is a high speed reel for 2011 by director Charles Bergquist. Some of the shots are filmed at over 2000 fps at 1280 x 720. The results are phenomenal. See for yourself. Soundtrack by Mux Mool ain’t half bad either.

New Music: Dauwd – What’s There

From the little I have heard from Dauwd, it has become clear that the young Welsh producer makes music with complexity and thought, attributes that could be seen to have abandoned many these days. The three tunes on his upcoming release on Pictures Music show evidence of a young man layering lush sounds on mature beats in ways that many of his contemporaries have not.

Growing up in Wales, Dauwd played piano, guitar and drums whilst experimenting with electronic production“making housey techno, and drum and bass kinda vibes, sampling bits of my favourite tracks, or anything random”. The experience in these “real” instruments shines through in the melody of this little gem.

I’m sure we’ll be hearing more in the coming months…
