Currently Surging

Been having a bit of a Serge Santiago week which is always a good thing. Managed to dig up a couple of tracks I hadn't heard before, including this Roxy Music edit. Complete and utter uncompromising extravagance. Nothing happens in a rush here, this edit is 15 minutes of Santiago destruction. There are parts where it dawdles a tad, as you'd have to expect, but it's really just excellent. Also just picked up his edit of Tenebre which has this killer Hypnosis tune on the flip - A grade stuff! Lurve you Serge.

I impulsively bought this Rosebud record with covers of Have A Cigar and Money, which are pretty B-grade but earn bonus points for the novelty factor. This iss definitely not an amazing song but I'm a huge Floyd fan and 70s disco covers are always a good laff. From what I can gather Rosebud were a bunch of renowned French(?) session musos who came together for this project - unfortunately the tribute LP they came up with kinda stinks. Am I selling this one well? Meh give it a go, it probably won't ruin your life.

Woolfy's new album If You Know What's Good For Ya!! is out now on DFA/Rong. Sadly I haven't had a chance to listen to it yet but I've been enjoying the remixes bundled with the LP. Was a struggle to decide which to post - the burning percussive Lee Douglas remix of The Warehouse or the soothing dreamy Carlos Hernandez remix of Two Far Gone. I've got a bit of a soft spot for Lee so that seals the deal. I'm always curious about Woolfy's music, some of his stuff is really on the money for me whilst other times I could give it a miss. Either way, really looking forward to hearing this album.

As predicted, Keep Me In My Plane is the new WhoMadeWho single which has already copped a bunch of remixes. It was probably far too optimistic to expect the same consistent quality of all of The Plot's remixes, but there are a couple of winners in the bunch. This deep and slightly techy DJ Koze dub is a beauty. It's.... really deep. Yeah. Nice.

This just in: Clap Rules' new track is spectacular. I can confidently say that they're my favourite artists of 2009 so far. Fabrizio Mammarella and his two partners in crime seriously know how to work a sequencer and wakka-wakka a guitar. Whilst this track isn't quite as excitingly original as the tunes on Old Sequencer, it's still a top shelf quality groove. I would kill to see these guys live... Could someone please bring them to Australia RIGHT NOW? Thanks. This is only a 128 taste - buy this record quick, the label says it's limited to 200 copies. Don't wait for a repress :)

Clap Rules - Buio Omega [buy]

Thanks for the WhoMadeWho Koze remix, for some reason this Danish band doesn't want to sell this to fellow danes like me on Beatport.

Oh yeah and I too would love to hear that Tenebre edit.
