If you're free in Sydney tomorrow come to our party at Bondi Social with Slow Blow, Softwar, Charlie Chux (of Discopunx) and Ash & I playing groovy Sunday tunes on the beachfront all evening :) the last couple have been stacks of fun! A fantastic opportunity for all of us to wank over our latest 12" finds and compete over whose record bag (penis) is bigger. Happy hour is 4 - 9pm. Check it out!
Got some seriously amazing new records to share. Seems I've been a bit late picking up on these Sleazy Beats records.. This latest one by Melbourne producer Tornado Wallace aka Lewie Day is my new favourite record, easy. Three impossibly groovy slow burning deepish house tracks that all get me twitching uncontrollably - this is supremely good producing. His release for Delusions of Grandure is also a gem, it comes highly recommended as well. Fucking brilliant.
Still can't stop playing the Space Rangers' D-Train edit, and now I can't stop playing the B-side either. Cool laid back funk track with all the same winning elements direct from 1982. The two tracks together make this record the kinda thing you could use in a stack of different situations and emerge a hero. So worth owning!

I was worried about this Martians record being a really hit-or-miss affair with me, but turns out it's hit big. The Royal Dub of Theme Tune is the real winner for me, taking things down a notch from the original speedy party bash to a more comfortable nu-disco zone. I really like the sci-fi sorta vibe of the whole record! On the flip, the Acid Easy version of Clockwork is a full on acid banger which is especially tasteful. It's a seriously electronic record with an excellent range of feels - another all-purpose affair. I love it more with every listen!

Lastly is the latest Past Due release with an amazing remix lineup including James Curd, Nick Chacona and My Cousin Roy. Despite the big names, the original cut by Greyship Daviz is the real standout for me. Big fruity disco funk sound! Aside from that though, James Curd's thick dubby remix is the highlight. The only problem with this record is it sounds a bit gluggy for some reason, i dunno what the deal is there. But a solid piece of wax this is.
