Once again the weekend is so close you can smell it, yeooooowww! I present to you two new tracks, the first a Basement Jaxx tune that has got me very excited about the new album and a totally new direction in the Basement Jaxx sound – love it!

BASEMENT JAXX – RAINDROPS

The second is a rework of Calvin Harris – I’m Not Alone, that is perfect to get you moving with a few beers in hand!

BIRDS AND MONSTERS

22 Apr

MGMT have been announced at this years less then impress Splendour in The Grass lineup, as the hype that surrounds this insanely popular duo finally dematerializes I thought it was appropriate to bring you a remix, Of Moons, Birds & Monsters produced by Holy Ghost, that is mind-blowing, perfection!

MGMT – OF MOONS, BIRDS & MONSTERS (HOLY GHOST REMIX)

Also some tormented lo-fi produced by SALEM that wouldn’t go amiss in the early hours of the morning after a massive night, mmmm!

SALEM – OHK

Kind of late jumping on the The Golden Filters band wagon, but I guess I’ve been waiting for a stand-out track, and I think I’ve found it! A remix of Solid Gold by Russ Chimes that almost makes me speechless play this one loud and wait for that huge drop!

The Golden Filter – Solid Gold (Russ Chimes Remix)

AT A PRICE

19 Apr

What can say? Squares & Zeros continue to impress me and their latest track that I managed to get my paws on does just that!! Keep in mind At a Price is just a DEMO however there is no doubt that when this little indie-dance gem is released it will be superb!

SQUARES & ZEROS – AT A PRICE DEMO

Also included a Squares & Zeros remix of their own track So Shy which is pretty damn good, which also giving S&Z a chance to showcase their outstanding production talents.

SQUARES & ZEROS – SO SHY (S&Z BASH-FULL REMIX)

Next up a mixed bag of truly outstanding remixes that seem to be on constant replay especially good is the Bat for Lashes Daniel remix done by Death Metal Disco Scene which is so so good!

BAT FOR LASHES – DANIEL (DEATH METAL DISCO SCENE REMIX)

AYUMI HAMASAKI – RULE (80KIDZ NO MORE RULE REMIX)

The Vanish

15 Apr

Just received an email informing me about The Vanish. The Vanish consist of two guys, one from San Fransisco and the other from Sydney that are a blend of the Midnight Juggernauts, French synth pop and The Presets vocals… cool! It will be interesting to see what these guys can produce in the future, there are no shows announced as yet but I will keep you posted.

The Vanish – Heartbeat

The Vanish – Hold On

I don’t know much about 80kidz I have to also admit that I didn’t really like the track “Frankie” when I first listened to it, but like any good pop song after a couple of spins I couldn’t get enough of it! Also some rad vocals by The Shoes – and a shout out to BIGSTEREO for the track!

80Kidz – Frankie

Next up is Synthia a producer(s)? out of the UK according to the myspace their style/genre is Electro, Techno and Psychobilly which I guess is pretty accurate… anyways its good check it out.

Synthia – 1981
