Dripping With So Much Dance
Danny Krivit's new edits comp is out on Strut and, although it's pretty great, I still reckon Edits By Mr. K Vol. 1 reigns supreme! From the first track, this hottttt edit of Jimmy Simpson's Diana Ross remix, it's club gold. Initially bought it because it had the sensational edit of Lenny Williams' 'Running' that was on James + Pat's Fabriclive. Truly an excellent purchase. Ramblings aside, the second volume is well worth checking out but the first is crucial to own. The end. Oh and while I'm posting Diana Ross, check out this funky beach house remix by Drop Out Orchestra. The kind of thing you'd find on one of the really good Chillout Sessions CDs from back in the day.

Although I love deep house, I'm not often one to buy many deep records. Hopefully that'll change over the summer... I can see this one being full of deeeeep blissful grooves. This amazing tune by Trickski, off his latest Suol 12, is a lot slower than it seems all the way down at 100bpm. It works around one little sliver of Phil Collins' 'I'm Not Moving' and keeps plodding along towards a miniature climax. So solid.

The latest in RVNG's crazy psychedelic weirdo 'FRKWYS' series is definitely my fave so far. Particularly, the Juan Atkins remix on the A is really beautiful. It reminds me a lot of Pilooski's contribution to the NRDS series, AAA - a lengthy journey into twisted sounds and a bit of a spooky vibe. The two songs sound nothing alike but I really feel a connection there. Keep this one in the back room, or be sure there are lots of weird people around... Psychic Ills aren't for everyone but if you dig this you should reeeally dig it.

I've been really lazy lately so here are a few extras as a kind of 'sorry I'm useless' offering. A killer 80s burner by Connie Case which made its way onto the first Rusty's Dusty Disco record, and a really wonderful mix by DJ Heidi (incidentally Harvey's manager) which ranges from Trus'me to Shit Robot to Fleetwood Mac to top shelf techno. Perfect for the change of seasons and still freshhhh!

DJ Heidi - Xmas Mix 2007
Heaps of shiny new records should be falling on my head any day now so expect some gold.
