Ash Le Rouge is like this really sexy and funny friend of mine who sent me this mix. His ability to rock a party with his laid back vibe and general party humour is only matched by his ability on the 1s and 2s. Here is a mix he did with his sometimes bestie and general disco cosmonaut Will Hawthorn. To be completely honest with you, it could be the best thing I've ever heard. I can't wait for the party. Check out the track list in the comments.

Have to thank the excellent discobelle for this one - David Rubato's mix of Shadows. Sooo cool! I really love the sounds he's used, the power of the bass, the airy synths. Not so crazy about the vocals, I think the original take may have worked better, but whatever. I'm in love with his style. Check out an older track of his too, Circuit, scented with Eau de Bangalter. I'm sad I didn't discover him earlier, but will be stalking him something fierce from now on.

Really liking the sounds of TERROR DACTEL from Washington. It's the heavier electro sound without the stale crusts. Here's one from his album due in a few months. The start reminds me of Wildcat, which makes me happy. Give it a whirl, see what you think.
TERROR DACTEL - Rocket Ready
Something new from the always brilliant Mathematikal - almost didn't need to listen before posting it, but after double checking, yes. It's killer. A great surging party track. Don't really need to say much more, just have a listen.
The Kills - Cheap & Cheerful (Mathematikal Rerub)
Hmm hopefully good tunes will continue to float in this direction.

50th post here! Suppose it's a bit shameful, 1st birthday is just over a month away, but at least things are more or less still going.
Here's a Switch mix that's been around for a long time but hasn't seen much attention, oddly enough - his mesmerising, almost tribal take on Jacques Your Body. Maybe some find it boring but I've always really enjoyed it as a cool deep groove you could throw in somewhere to really intensify things. Just thought I'd put it on offer, since a surprising number of people haven't heard it.
Les Rythmes Digitales - Jacques Your Body (Switch Remix)
Something else that's been around a while, but in this case has seen extremely minimal distribution, is one of K I M's finest. Seeing as the trend seems to be for his old tunes to be re-released as singles, I'd expect this one to be next, so I'll only up a 128k version for home listening. Complete with cheeky pirate flute and a light-heartedly majestic synth line, it breaks into a killer rhythmic head bopper. Check the Bag Raiders mix for a laff too.
K I M - Party Machini

I'm sure this has been posted around a lot for a while, I don't mean to be stealing, but a really lovely Cut Copy mix that continues to grow on me. An incredibly feel good moment when the super thick bass line plods in around half way. Very uplifting!
Mercy Arms - Kept Low (Cut Copy Remix)
Enjoy the weekend!
