Balmy Days and Palmy Bays


A bit of a mixed bag here.

Tim Sweeney's RVNG mix, Mx3. Every few months I go back to it and go overboard with repeat playing it until I have to put it away again for a while. Really just way too good. Aphex Twin, Radiohead, Grace Jones, Kraftwerk, Zongamin... Spectacular. Anyway, I've always had a bit of a thing for this quirky Was (Not Was) tune. It's got an interesting dissonant mentality, a kinda bent sound. So here it is for your judgement. More importantly, though, if you don't have that mix cd of Tim's, GET IT NOW. And get Justine D's too. And get everything that's still available on the site while you still can. Fin.

Was (Not Was) - Wheel Me Out (Remix Version)

At last this Supermayer remix has been officially released on Kompakt's latest compilation, Total 10. Thank god, until now the only version I've had has been defective and cut out 2/3 of the way through. Heart's A Mess is one of my favourite songs of all time (I don't care if it's cliche) and this remix does everything it can to extend and embellish and enhance each heart wrenching moment. Why Gotye didn't want this released is on the single is beyond me. The track grooves and shuffles and swells for the first four minutes until rich velvety strings wash away the beat and open the song up for Gotye's delicate vocals and bone dry acoustic guitar. I could rant about this forever, it's just fucking spectacular. 10/10.

Have been hesitant with posting this next Downtown Party Network track for a month now, figured I'd just put it out there and not worry about it anymore. It doesn't completely seal the deal for me because, frankly, it's nothing even slightly new. That said, it's a top quality piece of production and, at the end of the day, it works. Just take it or leave it, maybe it's your thang. Dreamy cruisy synth-heavy nu disco you don't have to think about.

This new Hotbath Re-Edits record is fantastic! Apparently the work of Crazy P, the 4 cuts on here are totally varied and totally hot. Quincy Jones and No Doubt on the same record. Strange but cool! And I have to admit, the No Doubt edit (Hella Good) is probably my favourite. It works out to be a bit of a dub version, just the groove smoldering away with minimal vocals. Lots of fun! If you do get a chance to snap this record up before it disappears, it's worth it.

Hotbath - Keep On Dancing [buy]

Who knows why I'm posting this. I guess I don't feel obscure enough sometimes. A Chow Daddy track from an old Moxie record, no clue what it's an edit of. Maybe you'll love it, maybe you'll hate it. Lucky dip!

Chow Daddy - Batman

Also, Juno has a new podcast series, the Juno Disco Series which is curated by Faze Action. Very exciting! Episode 1 has a nice variety of top disco tunes, so make sure you give it a whirl. Oh and it does this really cool thing I haven't seen before where with each different song the artwork and song info changes and it links to the record. Am I just becoming one of those old people who is fascinated by remote controls and voice activation, or is this actually some new funky thing? Yeah, good podcast series imminent. Get into it.

Oh ALSO, Sydneysiders swing by World Bar tomorrow night at 11:30, will play some fun tunes4u. Have a good weekend!!

Completely agree about Hearts A Mess, did you get that mp3 from Good Weather for Airstrikes when he was having server problems? Passion Pit is remixing Livingandloving...

Also what happening in Sydney next week/end? Keen for some disco
