This is one of those songs that belong to my epic 'stadium' play list. I'm guessing the crowd went wild to Erol Alkan playing this track at Oxygen in 2006. Wish I was there. kiD Alexis the best bits of Boys Noize and D.I.M in one. Heaps of minimal sounds made maximal. From what I can gather, Telex is a 70s electronic pop band. They seem kind of cool.

I (and the rest of Sydney) saw Digitalism at the Oxford Art Factory last Thursday and yes, they were amazing. Well, they sounded amazing. Their performance was lacking something that the Presets and Soulwax have. I don't really like comparing artists but if you've seen all three acts you'll know what I mean. We all compare anyway. The crowd was pushing it a bit - the vibe didn't live up to the music. Maybe because it was an earlier show. However, their hold of the crowd at Parklife the following Sunday definitely lived up to everyone’s prior expectations. With heaps of stadium electro. So not all is bad.
Digitalism's 2005 remix of A New Cage by Sono, has that slight rock feel which Digitalism handles so well. The distracted vocals are cool. The song is a bit repetitive but I think we've all learned to live with that. If you haven't heard it, check it out.

So Sunday School are back with another mix - Eat More Disco Biscuits (not stadium electro at all). It's a smooth mix of cool tracks that has been thought out and mixed well - qualities in posted mixes that are sometimes hard to find. The quality of their mix is somewhat similar to their behind-deck performance, which doesn't lack anything. See them at STARFUCKERS. See the tracklist here. You must listen to this one, or at least the hilarious intro.
