Ho hum. I saw the Soulwax doco last week and funnily enough it's inspired me to get back into LCD Soundsystem more than anything. James Murphy spends about as much time on camera as any of the Soulwax guys... Though I'm not complaining. It's also got me thrashing some other DFA stuff. They really have the most killer little music corner to themselves. I snagged James Murphy & Pat Mahoney's Fabriclive disc today and it's really as fantastic as I expected! Have a taste of a couple of tunes that feature in the mix... Well they're both edits of the tracks used, but whatever. Firey disco! By the way, the doco is great, go see it!
Jackson Jones - I Feel Good, Put Your Pants On (Pilooski Edit)
G.Q. - Lies (Theo Parish Edit)
All the DFA remixes really are solid gold. I'd assume a good percentage of blog readers would have spent unhealthy amounts of time jiving to these tunes, but this is for the benefit of those who haven't been lucky enough. These two are probably my favourites. Check out Metro Area and Le Tigre on their own too - they both make top muzak.
Metro Area - Orange Alert (DFA Remix)
Le Tigre - Deceptacon (DFA Remix)
Also, a couple of weeks ago, I picked up a copy of a new DFA release - Supersoul Recordings: Nobody Knows Anything. Very interesting and very cool. The whole thing has a great spacey vibe, though not particularly light. The production on every track is totally first class! Definitely recommend buying this bad boy and making the most of some good weather. Also randomly picked up a Still Going 12", i dig their stuff.
Walter Jones - Deuteronomy Brown (I-f Edit)
And finally, while doing some more digging through old things, i recovered my Freeform Five Misch Masch album. I'd honestly forgotten the versatility and talent of these guys. The first disc is a great mix with everything from Funkadellic to Aphex Twin, but it's the second disc of Freeform remixes that really got me excited. 9 tracks of total epicness! The shortest mix lands at just over 6 minutes, so they're serious value productions. My two favourites are the Annie and Elton reworks, both busting out some crazy instrumentation and a broad range of genres. Fab!
Elton John - Are You Ready for Love (Freeform Reform Vocal)
Annie - The Greatest Hit (Freeform Reform Vocal)
High five for anybody living in Sydney who's drooling over this incredible weather like I am. Come by Candy's Apartment on Friday and we'll have a great, sweaty time.
