theres just something about Fujiya & Miyagi, i dunno, but there just something is. their weird dark undercurrent groove is just hypnotising, loving the new album, Ventriloquizzing is great check it out
saw Austra last night, was awesome! saw them/her at sxsw last year going under the name of katie stelmanis, they were thinking about changing their/her name then....anyway.... the point is, this girl has an amazing voice! and writes great music too
Long time friend, and founder of the new and exciting record label Metamimetic, Fazhands, has dropped his new mix. It's fantastic. A tightly put together blend of techy and deep house groovers. There are some big "get stuck in your head" tunes on here, my personal favourites being the dark yet jackin' Phil Weeks track "All Day Every Day", and one of Fazhands' own, "Press Play", that gives the mix a more jump up vibe. The EP has just been released on Beatport, so go and get it.
one band that can do no wrong in my eyes, balls to the wall proper punk rock! can not wait for the new Obits album this year! and maybe some more seaside walks this is a free download, spread the word!
Everyone is busting out the disco jams at the moment, and I am also getting quite into it. It is by no means going to tear me away from my love of house music, but just distract me for a while. Here are a few of my favourite tracks of recent put together in a listenable form. There is even a few dodgy vinyl blends in there...
1. Douze - We Got The Love [Work It Baby] 2. Twin Sister - All Around And Away We Go (Eskimo Twins) [Domino] 3. Bicep - Darwin [Throne Of Blood] 4. Tevo Howard - Spacial [Permanent Vacation] 5. Lewie Day - That's The Thing [Murmur] 6. Cleo & Patra - Pharaoh Love [Editainment] 7. Patrick Wolf - Time Of My Life (Still Going) [Hideout/ Mercury Records] 8. Andre Crom & Martin Dawson - In The City [Off Recordings] 9. Soul Clap - Extravaganza [Wolf + Lamb Black]
Hopefully there will be a few more disco-tinged mixes in the next few months by some of our friends and enemies, so keep your eyes peeled.
P.S My new real mix will be about soon, I'm just waiting for the new Klasse release and this absolute STINKER from Julio Bashmore to come out at the end of this month. Hold tight!
