Laiiid Back I'll Give You Laid Back


Yeeeeee Boiiiiii! Just doing some procrastinating, figure I should share some relaxing goodies.

For a start - Tim Sweeney on Saturday was SO GOOD. Oh man. So refreshing! I'm instantly inspired to spend all my time/dollars record hunting again, none of this digital rubbish! One of his staple tunes seems to be The Rose by The Laughing Light of Plenty, and for very good reason. Bigstereo threw this one up a few months ago but it's well worth a delayed post here - a magnificent build with a whole heap of seemingly invisible energy that gives you no choice but to move. A brilliant song and a joy to hear Sweeney unleash it in the flesh! He sent me pretty schoolgirl..

The Laughing Light of Plenty - The Rose

I just finished a mix for GBH.tv (which I think is going to appear on friday's show) which admittedly was very rushed, but it got me looking through some records I got ages ago on the cheap and kind of neglected straight away. One in particular I'd forgotten about was a Brice Lee tune which I only bought in the first place because it had a Yuksek remix. Personally I think the original is way out in front. Really cool bassline groove, an overall really hot funky party feel. Hoping I find some other gems in my mystery pile.

Brice Lee - Spam (Extended Version)

High Life is a rrreally funky French collab between Askine, Begbie and Daze which I really should have blogged a long time ago. Especially love Too High - a really nice loungey number with some nice warm laid back rhythm guitar. A Kind of Feeling is more typical French House with a nice poppy vocal sample and tight slap bass. Not sure if they're still doing anything together, but fingers are crossed.

High Life - Too High

High Life - A Kind of Feeling

Still not going to stop yapping on about Us Two Music and Outcross Records. Seriously, they're the shit. Well Miguel Campbell isn't actually on Us Two, but he and Matt Hughes seem to be pretty tight - from what I can tell - so close enough. Need I say more? This tune is nice easy going soulful burner. Great production, great feel. Etc etc etc. Some new Us Two stuff got sent around today, some Outrunners tunes, go search them out.

Miguel Campbell - Can't Get Enough

The Phantom's Revenge aka the inventor of the 'disco banger' has more more more. Here's one from an upcoming free EP of short-and-sweet songs which, if it's representative of the rest, is going to be a winner. I'm not sure why I say most of this stuff anymore, it's all become quite obvious haha. TPR can't put a foot wrong; his consistency is undeniable. DISCO BANGERSSS!

The Phantom's Revenge - 3 Minutes with Apollo Creed

A couple of bonus songies just because I feel like it. I recently posted the Still Going remix of Anywhere, but I've since switched over to prefering the Compuphonic and Kolombo mix. It's got more character, a livelier feel, cooler sounds - it's just generally more exciting. Not to take away from the SG mix, but this is just more appealing to me right now. Also, I only recently (thanks to Kiyoshi) discovered that the amazing transformation of Da Funk in Alive 1997 is actually an Armand Van Helden remix. I can't believe I'd never stumbled across it before! Anyway, here it is in case anybody else made the same mistake.

The Presets - Anywhere (Compuphonic and Kolombo Remix)

Daft Punk - Da Funk (Armand Van Helden's 'Ten Minutes of Funk' Mix)

Hot hot hot hot~

Not sure why, could be the blog, could be my machine, but for some reason for about 50% of the tracks i try and dl off of your blog it only downloads about the first 10 seconds of a track ie the anywhere remix here. If its my machine, it doesnt happen on other blogs, strange.

anybody got any ideas?

To poster #1 - I'm using FireFox 3 - and no problem here. Might just be your machine? Try using a download manager, or just get FireFox.

Thanks for sharing those tunes!

adam said...

The reason for only getting the first 10 secs is cause your changing the name before DL, DL it then change the name :o)

Adam said...

i don't change the name or anything though... i just click save link as.. and then press OK, works everywhere else except here. Although I used to have the same problem at http://havefunclub.blogspot.com/ but they recently changed servers and now it works, could be related?

andy said...

i dunno what the deal is. i'll try turning hotlink protection off, which is crap anyway, and see if it's any better.. please let me know! i don't want to deprive anyone of tunage :)

adam said...

it didn't help... it's alright when downloading one song at a time but it seems to only happen when i try to download multiple files at once... which is really annoying seeing as i usually want to download every song on your posts!

andy said...

:( i'm sorry, i have no idea what else i can try. i haven't changed anything recently, so don't know what it could be...

adam said...

it's alright, I'll live. Thanks for trying anyways

Is this all that Laughing Light of Plenty has done?
