On The Mend
Still recovering from the last two brutal weeks, I'll do my best to pick my tattered self up off the floor and post more music. Thanks to those who came to our Death Strobe party! There are probably one or two of you in the universe who didn't manage to make it down and grab one of the CDs we were handing out and I really want to share this amazing Trus'me tune - big thanks to Willy for sending it to me! Domestic aggression has never sounded so good. This was originally on a Stilove4music release but later put out independently - seems Trus'me was another victim of SL4M's non-paying ways. Dodgy.

This gorgeous balearic number was sent in by a lad from Indonesia producing as Midnight Savari. Light and spacey but very very groovy with more depth than it lets on. Check out a broad spectrum of tunes on his SoundCloud, although they're from a different project. Can't wait to hear more!!
Midnight Savari - Pinisi
For the record, Jacques Renault's set on Saturday was a blinder. As is his latest Mystery Meat release with Lee Douglas which I've been holding out on posting. Alas, I can hold on no longer. The A-side, Pump, is featured in his Ones & Twos mix: huge party disco with commanding vocals and some added-synth beefiness. But for me their edit of Love Exchange's 'Got To Find A Disco' is the centrepiece. Granted it needs to be heard LOUD LOUD LOUD but it funks so fucking hard. It's really raw and thumping, totally unrelenting in its grooviness. Definitely one of the best records in the last couple of months.

And for good measure, a classic by Slick which everyone remembers from Erol's original Disco 3000 set. Or that Jeff Mills classics comp. Or from 1979 if you're really legit.
