All Aussie Adventures!

Yay! I've got an all Aussie post to flaunt some homegrown talent and brag about how cool our country is. First up, Sydney electro machine Whitenoise is secretly taking over the world with music so crunchy it sounds like a symphony of apples being eaten. Check out his ridiculously good remix of Bag Raiders' 'Fun Punch' which adds some delicious beef to the already fantastic roast vegetables of the original song. What the fuck are these metaphors? I'm hungry.. Anyway, play it in a club and you will be a true hero. Also, enjoy his own banger 'It's What We Do', which will end up on his record coming out on Bang Gang 12 Inches later this year. Exxxxxcellent!

Next up, Candy's Apartment regular chums Hey Now have been darling enough to hook me up with their remix of The Paper Scissors' track 'We Don't Walk'. Disco Delicious certified good-times-for-all tune! It's well worth swinging by whenever they hit the decks to see the strangely attractive boys bring down the walls with hot beats.

I'll take a step back from the club realm for a moment for something a bit more laid back. Another fine Damn Arms remix has swooped into my inbox, this time by Cut Copy/Riot in Belgium. To me it sounds like a nice blend of Cut Copy and Alan Braxe with those gentle warming synths. While I'm at it, it can't hurt to post another old Juggers' remix of the band, so here's their take on 'The Cormorant' which has the classic super punchy bass drum and driving feel that I really love about their sound. And if that can't hurt, then this won't hurt either: the lovely Presets mix of 'Devil Within' from the Juggernauts' debut EP, 'Secrets of the Universe' which is definitely worth having. A great dark mix which has always made me wish the Presets would do more remix work.

Finally - how could I post an Aussie showcase without throwing some GhettoRuckus in? Have a jive to their latest mix installment, 'Battered in Baltimore' with steamy tracks by Herve, Goose, Sinden and other cheeky characters. Track listing is here.

Oh, and if you haven't already, make very sure you check out Hookie's mix in the previous post. It's been permanently on in my car for the last week, and doesn't look like losing that privilege any time soon.

And now I'm off to Splendour for the weekend. I can taste your jealousy! Be good, kids.

this is sweet, its like you are an internet version of me made up of 1's and 0's, you anticipate my every move, you post everything that makes me hard.

also that hookie mix is INSANE, did he actually mix it? or was it a starfuckers gang collab?

andy webb said...

haha thanks! yep that mix was all hookie, stunning hey? if you dig that, should have a mix from sunday school coming in the next couple of weeks, so be on your toes.

if you're in syd, myspace me and we'll have a beer at starfuckers, yeah?

great fucking post.

Dave said...

Andy! This is just brill! I've been waiting for the Whitenoise mix to drop for some time now! AND that new Damn Arms? Damn it man. You're putting me to shame. I'll have to retaliate now...

Love the blog bud, keep up the good work!

Definitely a link going up on alblog, soon as I get round to posting this month...

Great blog dude. Seriously one of the best, lovin every post.

All the better it's coming straight outta Syd aswell.

Keep it up.

dude you cant just post anything you feel like, there are artists out there trying to make a living.

Dave said...

I don't see why people are get all fussed over what Andy's posted. The old stuff (Presets vs. Juggers, Juggers vs. Damn Arms) has been available for some time, and posting the mp3s encourages people to search out the entire eps/12"s. As for the new stuff, the dude's even said that Comets/Belgium/Cut Copy/whoever sent him the mp3 directly. Either that or someone with the authority to send it had sent the email. And the same probably goes for the Whitenoise stuff as well! Being Sydney's best blogger, i'm sure people would want Andy to post their music. Sheesh. Calm down. And if the artists don't want their material on the blog they can just ask to take it down. We like to be friends with the people who make music that we love, so I'm certain Andy would happily comply. Seriously.

Rant over.

Dave said...

Another point!

Posting remixes and tunes encourages people to see the artists shows/dj sets too. Let's be realistic about this. Blogs are basically free promotion.

I was just in time for that whitenoise remix of Bag raiders.. what a tune! Thanks Andy.
Keep it up ;)



Anonymous said...

Dave, you have some very valid points, but myspace rips/set rips of unreleased material is never very appreciated by any artists

Dave said...

Yeah I can see now that this wasn't cleared, and I know how the Raiders are notorious for keeping a tight lid on there stuff. Hopefully nobody's in trouble here. Pardon my ranting by the way anon. I know blogs are tumultuous things.

Unknown said...

just to set the record straight - i misunderstood what whitenoise told me about the tune which is why i posted it, and had no internet access until last night so had no way of checking emails. i'm sorry to the bag raiders for sharing the track against their will, but please realise the whole reason i write this blog is to promote talented artists and share fantastic music that i think people need to be hearing. obviously if i'm acting against any artists wishes i'll do whatever i can to sort out the problem.

cheers guys

I agree that the foul itself does not look bad at normal speed, but, oh God, that's a horrific injury.
