Re: looking for cool spanish music

The Heatwave is a UK-based dancehall collective who throw some amazing parties. The main guy, Gabriel Heatwave, is (if I recall correctly) from Columbia. He did a mix for the now defunct blogariddims series called La Ola De Calor, which I have recently learned means The Heatwave. It is awesome. Like...

Good name, too. The GBBF was great, as always. They held it at Olympia this year, which is a nicer venue than Earl's Court. The Champion Beer of Britain is a barleywine . I didn't get to taste it.

Yeah, the BBC has been absolutely killing it. Free to air digital, and online with the iPlayer (which worked fine during the men's 100m), coverage of just about everything as far as I can tell, and it's all free. If this is a socialist utopia, sign me up.
