After slowly picking out songs here and there, I've noticed the tracks I chose for this post are all a bit similar. Well, Trent beat me to posting the Mathematikal mix, but the other two are also grinding banger-ish types with plenty of grit, just as I thought I may be steering away from that sort of stuff a bit. Surprising, but pleasantly surprising. I'll kick it off with the Para One remix of My Head, which I wasn't aware of until i found it on the other side of my Lava Lava 12". Killer, tight rhythms! Punching bass! High intensity effects! From past experience, you know anything touched by both Boys Noize and Para One has to be gold.

Boys Noize - My Head (Para One Remix)

Was kindly sent this fine tune from Belgian duo Mascotte, who make some really nice groovy-yet-sinister sounds. This is perhaps not as dark as some of their other songs, but it's a good introdudtion to their vibe. Plenty of pleasing noise. I'm looking forward to hearing them make music in 08, I have faith they'll stay on top of things.

Mascotte - Backspace

A couple of old tunes, again from inthemix.06 (get it! get it! GET IT!), both amazing and quite different takes by Mike Monday on Whirlpool Productions' 'anthem' if you want to call it that. The first is swelling melodic disco that layers and builds gently into deep, uplifting, warm funk. The dub takes a totally different angle, with jagged beats and stabbing synths. It's a far more aggressive and deformed wrap of the song, but works just as well. Together the two tracks compliment each other just dandy, and I love how they're used on the album to blatantly indicate the direction the disc has taken.

Whirlpool Productions - From: Disco, To: Disco (Mike Monday's Disco Odyssey)

Have a good weekend!
