TOO SHOES

26 Aug

cig

This track was sent over to me from my mate Tim Dening aka TOO SHOES, a local Dj of Brisbane and Gold Coast, most notably The Fox on Sundays. So if you like the track head on over there and and give him the heads up, a good club banger. Leave some comments if need be.

TEMPORARY PLEASURE

19 Aug

feelit

Not sure why we havn’t posted any Simian Mobile Disco of late. Their new album Temporary Pleasure has seen mixed reviews not withstanding a beating from NME. So, in genre-mashed mid-2009, SMD have actually taken a step backwards by, yes, making an album of dance music for indie fans who don’t like dance music. And that it isn’t resoundingly terrible (as background music it’s passable, as long as you can’t actually hear it properly) is due to its general beigeness rather than the sparse flashes that illuminate it. Leave your brain running unsupervised for 10 minutes on the bus and you’ll end up humming ‘Temporary Pleasure’ even if you’ve never heard it – it’s less an album and more a mental screensaver. Hello yesterday.” Has Ben Patashnik the author of such a tirade against SMD made an album of late? I can see where he is coming from if all you listen to is Indie music but these songs are for the at home chiller and are quite enjoyable in your car on the way to the coast, you will never hear them when your out on the town, but who cares? I enjoyed them.

KISS OF LIFE

17 Aug

Rad

Kind of late posting the new track from Friendly Fires entitled “Kiss Of Life” probably because at first I hated it… but like anything opinions can change and after a few spins in ye old jukebox (itunes) it kind of grew on me… However, the big turning point from just another song to, oh my god obsessed (not to sound like a 13yr girl) was after I viewed the film clip, rad!


FRIENDLY FIRES – KISS OF LIFE

Another delightfully amazing remix by Fred Falke.

NOT FROM FRANCE

17 Aug

Lovers

For those who didn’t know, Don Diablo is not from France….no really, he is not from France! Nor is he from the UK or Italy for that matter! The Dutchman is proud to unleash the first bomb from his forthcoming album, well at least a remix of it. Louis la Roche takes on Don Diablo’s ‘I am not from France’ and nails it! Don: “I’m excited I finally get to share something from the album, now that it is finally finished. Still don’t have an exact date, but expect it to drop end of October!” If you want to return some love to Don vote for him at http://www.djmag.com/top100djs. Yeah, we know he will probably not beat any of the big TranceDJ’s, but hey who knows…a miracle might happen! Vive la Révolution!

DON DIABLO

Is Don Diablo a musical genius? … the short answer is yes. Techno one week, funky breaks the next – but let’s not put the below tracks in a box. Or lets: post nu-electro, full blown orchestral, euphoric bliss, downbeat darkness, back to mine 3am (but ready to pump again) come Sunday chill-out. Better suggestions please!

DAN BLACK

Could Dan Black be the new face of pop? The former indie kid turned synth pop hipster certainly seems to be receiving enough attention … but will he live up to the hype or will he burst like a Sam Sparro bubble. Hmmm maybe that’s harsh – we’re lovers not haters but anyway, whatcha think?
