Ohh My Head..

Fuck, after that hectic week I feel like I've been hit by a car. And I would know. Anyway, I'll kick things off with a repost of one of my favourite tunes at the moment at a listenable bitrate plus another nice new mix: the Oizo and Kissy remixes of Calvin Harris' 'Merrymaking At My Place'. It may take me months to get over the awesome grooviness, especially if a 12" release is around the corner that i can jive to in my room. The Kissy remix is more vanilla than I expected, but a more club-friendly tempo than the Oizo mix and it's still an ace song. Drug taking! Drug taking!

I was lucky enough to get my hands on the gritty new Passions remix of 'Home Wrecker' by Melbourne indie kids Damn Arms, hopefully with some more goodies to follow. They're supporting the Klaxons while they're over here as well as the Midnight Juggernauts on their Dystopia tour in August, which you really can't afford to miss if you live in Aus.

Been getting some great music in the mail, so I guess I'd better post some. My two faves this week have been from Janedge and MESH, from France and America respectively. 'You Sampled That' by Janedge is a powerful driving dirty electro piece, and 'I Want To Start' by MESH is a trippy up-and-down boomer. Both should be played very loud and danced to overly enthusiastically.

Janedge - You Sampled That

MESH - I Want To Start

And finally, a short and sweet mix by Hookie - Starfuckers resident DJ/celebrity/mover and shaker - should motivate you to come visit Sydney's best club night hosted at Club 77. Get the track listing here. Seriously, if you want great music which you clearly do if you're reading this blog *chortle* then fucking go there and don't look back. Unless you value your sundays..

Hoodies Ahoy!

Going to the snow for a week on sunday, I'm terrified about leaving the blogosphere behind for so long! But I'm sure if I add in some lame phrases like "here's a real winter warmer tune to keep you toasty on those chilly nights" I'm sure I won't be missed.

But seriously, I've had this Kissy Sell Out set on repeat for a few weeks to keep my fingers and toes sizzling (ok, I won't start) which shows off some pretty amazing DJ skills and fantastic song selection. Still haven't found a complete tracklisting for it, and I think anyone who attempts to do one is pretty brave since there are a few points where the mash ups get a bit ridiculous. Somehow Kissy manages to pull almost all of them off with little to no cheese, with some surprisingly good little gems like Hollaback Girl vs Phantom. It's a blazer!

Good friends GhettoRuckus DJ's have popped out a new edit of 'NYC Beat' to add to the collection, and again prove it's a great song to mix up. The title gives the Bag Raiders a run for their money too. Sydney kids beware: it won't be too long before they've taken over the back room in your favourite club.

Armand Van Helden - NYC Beat (GhettoRuckus Gets Lost in LA and Meets 3 Sexy Hookers Who Like KFC Edit)

This is nothing particularly new, but since picking up a 12" copy I've been playing it a lot, and there's a chance it may have slipped by some people. Bag Raiders just keep getting better and better and if the Fun Punch EP ever comes out it should shoot them further into stardom. Muscles is getting some pretty hot gigs too - I'll be seeing him at Splendour in the Grass and Parklife, which are both going to be amazing festivals.

See you in a week(ish), be good!

Too Slow..

Well bummer, got beaten to the punch by BigStereo, Kidz by Colette and Discobelle, but Plus Move rock my socks so I'll post a couple of the tunes they sent anyway. Actually, I was too slow on a lot of things this week, so if you're not happy that these songies aren't the freshest of the fresh.. I don't care, because I had a massive weekend instead. So worth it.

Mendetz - The Boola (Plus Move Remix)

NSM PSP - Clap Your Brains Off! (Plus Move Remix)

Some more great Bloody Beetroots remixes have been popping up, and my excitement level for their Austrlian tour has multi-multiplied. Here are two massive mixes of tracks by Captain Phoenix and Les Petits Pilous. Ohhhhh the electro crunch!

Les Petits Pilous - Jolie Fille (The Bloody Beetroots Remix)

Captain Phoenix - Pistols and Hearts (The Bloody Beetroots Remix)

Feeling very lazy today, writing shit is a bit of a drag. This song is pretty groovy, just take my word for it. Cicada pulls out nice work on Sydneysiders Pomomofo, yum yum.

Pomomofo - Back At The Club (Cicada Remix)

Finally, make sure you check out this fortnight's ArePeopleReal podcast with special guests Crookers! How I love those Italian sexbags. The show was due on the 5th, so should be up today/tomorrow with any luck.

Lucy In The Sky With Disco

Hopefully all of you are aware of the Bang Gang's upcoming mix album 'Light Sound Dance', which is just days away from its release on Modular, and you are all as excited as I am about it. No tracklisting yet, but music by Switch, Justice, Crystal Castles, DJ Funk, SMD, Midnight Juggernauts, Thomas Bangalter and SebastiAn to name a select few surely gets the juices flowing. If you haven't already sampled their MiniMegaMix, it's strong confirmation that this is going to be a massive CD which certainly no blog reader can live without. Enjoy their many wonderful mixes on Bang Gang Podcast. Can't wait for Saturday!

Bang Gang DJ's - Light Sound Dance MiniMegaMix

And speaking of SebastiAn - you may have heard Blaze Tee's remix of 'D.A.N.C.E.' drifting about the blogosphere, and the very same kind young man has put together a ReRub of Seb's 'UFO' remix (ripped from his Pig Radio set) that is 100% standalone and playable! Oh joyous day! As he's well known and loved for, SebastiAn has ripped the song apart and stitched it up into a huuuge club bomb. Until some kind of official release, this will certainly tide you over. Thanks Blaze!

Sneaky Sound System - UFO (SebastiAn vs. Blaze Tee ReRub)

I really can't seem to find anything else super spicy fresh that's blog worthy, so here's a tune that's been left in the cellar to age for a while... A nice mix of a top Acid Jacks song. It's bit more fucked up than most MSTRKRFT mixes, and there's nothing wrong with that.

Acid Jacks - Awake Since 78 (MSTRKRFT Remix)

Thanks to all those who've sent their music, and sorry if I haven't replied - I've been busy busy. Keep it coming!
