Burgerac's 4th of July Barbecue mix


Back in May I played a two-hour set of  "Music To Grill Meat To" on Comms Bureau, Pick Me Up festival's pop-up radio station. Digging my swampy selection, the good folk at Cool Hunting in New York asked me to do a special  mix in time for the 4th of July seasonal backyard barbecue and firecracker celebrations. I didn't have much time but how could I refuse?

So, wherever you are, and whatever you're doing this 4th July, I hope y'all enjoy my 20 track selection of what Cool Hunting has labelled "swampland hits" . Listen on mixcloud or here or below:

The Prince (N16) burger

£9 At long flippin' last: awesome burgers come to Stoke Newington, courtesy of Will Dee, head chef at The Prince pub on Kynaston Road

As a long time resident of Stoke Newington I can't tell you how happy I am to see The Prince pub on Kynaston Road refurbished (beautifully) and serving a selection of top craft ales, mostly from the plethora of excellent local London breweries to have emerged in the last few years - Beavertown, Camden Town Brewery, Five Points, Hackney Brewery, London Fields Brewery, Pressure Drop, The Redchurch Brewery and more...

The Drapers Arms Cheeseburger

£12.50 One of the best pub burgers in London – thanks to a 200g beef patty from The Butchery, a bespoke St John bun and a whole lotta love...


I've been to The Drapers Arms a few times but managed to never go at a time when burgers are being served. You see, they only serve burgers at lunchtime, Monday to Saturday. So if you go on a Sunday, you'll have great food and beer for sure but a burger won't be an option. A couple of weeks ago, on a Bank Holiday Monday, my luck changed and I finally sampled the pub's burger…

Byron Miami Slice special

£9.95 Based on a 'cuban hamburger' Byron's Miami Slice special is one of my favourite things to eat right now BUT it's only on until 9th of June

This Byron special has been on since the end of April but I only managed to sink my teeth into one this week. And now I want one every day - until the special ends on Monday 9th June...

Cupcake Jemma's Burger Cupcakes


I love burgers. I also love cake (who doesn't?) so to feast my eyes (and face) on a fresh batch of lovingly made burger cupcakes is always a pleasure, never a chore. But how do you make 'em? Here's the wonderful Cupcake Jemma of Crumbs & Doilies fame showing you how to build the ultimate burger cupcake in a brand new film posted on her very own YouTube channel…

Soho Stand Off #2: Tacos vs Sliders


Breddos, street food purveyors of tacos (and the dudes that currently serve sliders at Soho's Slider Bar) have opted not to fight slider with slider in an upcoming Soho Stand Off showdown with Bleecker St. Burger – but rather to pit two of their most popular tacos against two sliders cooked up by London's most awesomely reputed burger van…

Burgerac's Bangin' Blues on MEATtransMISSION


I've been quiet of late, I know. It's not that I haven't been eating burgers - I have - it's just that I've encountered nothing special enough (or awful enough) to inspire me to actually write about it. Just a lot of average burgers. Disappointing. HOWEVER, one place I've been getting consistently great grub is at MEATmission, where I've been a couple of times already this year – not just to stuff my face with Dead Hippies, Monkey Fingers etc but also to record a radio show…
