Mad Kids

After hearing their remix of Jesse Rose's "Touch My Horn" I knew that Mad Kids would be a group to watch. However, with this second batch of tracks I am beside myself. I am beyond impressed. Both of these tracks are excellent, the remix especially being a real breath of fresh air. Every little piece of their remix of "Staring At The Sun" is so subtle and so perfectly put together. I can't stop listening to it. The original track, "House Step" is faster paced, and not quite as brilliant to me sitting here in my room, but it would certainly be a lot of fun in the clubs. Big drums, rave synths, and a fun dubstep breakdown make this track.

Redial - Heart

A lot of people got very outraged a few weeks ago when Redial released his remix of Proxy's "Who Are You". Most people took it as some amateur trying to get his name out there by doing an easy edit of some unreleased Proxy. It's too bad that happened, and those people didn't care to look at all the great tracks he made before that, but he definitely has the chance to win those people back . If you're one of those people give this song a shot. He sent this over our way a few days ago, and I'm loving it. I'm definitely a sucker for anything with those warm synths, and that underlying bass. This style is definitely hot right now, and Redial knows what he's doing.


Hope you guys enjoy this new Daft Punk song for Tron as much as we do.

I would probably say that my most look forwarded too album coming up this year is Alex Ridha AKA Boys Noize's new album "Power." Ridha has been dropping his new tracks in his recent DJ sets and everyone has the same reaction to them. They freak out and loose their shit. The album will be out at the end of September and the launch party will be in London on Sept 26th with some very special guests. Hope you guys are as excited as we are!

New Twelves Remixes

It's been a little while since we've posted anything to do with The Twelves, but, I assure you, that does not mean they in any way stopped making the brilliant music that they do. Their remixing skills are cherished as some of the best around, and everyone's looking to get them pinned down on their release. Recently Yuksek had the bright idea of getting them for his So Far Away From The Sea EP. The EP contains the original track, an extended remix, and The Twelves remix. The original track was one of my favorite on the album. The first 45 seconds of the song get me every time. I put the original up on this post along with The Twelves remix because you really need it for comparison to see what they have done. Their remix is less of a remix to me and more of just an alternate version. Had I not known, I would have easily believed that this is the original. Great guitar and drums.

The Twelves also recently remixed Noah And The Whale's "Blue Skies". This remix is easily going to be one of my most played for the rest of the summer. It's got such a good feel to it. Once again they use the guitar to their advantage, this time with a little piano as well. The vocals are soft and darker than they should be for such an uplifting track, but somehow it works. Please check this one out.

Bye Bye Guns N Bombs. R.I.P.

After countless great remixes, and several very solid original productions the duo of Guns N Bombs are unfortunately no more. It appears Johnny and and Filip decided to go their separate ways for reasons they do not wish to make public at this time. They both will continue to make music, Filip with his band Ima Robot as well as his solo venture, Turbotito. Johnny has a new project as well, going by the name of Deathface. As a parting gift they have decided to release one of their most recent tracks as a free download to the public. It's a great track that shows the diversity and skill they had as a group. It's too bad it had to end.

B. Rich Makes Me Dance

Today I stumbled upon a pretty banging EP that came out about two weeks ago by the electronic artist B. Rich. On the EP titled Make Me Dance, are four original songs that I really liked. The EP was put out by Party Like Us Records and dropped on July 14th. I definitely recommend you to go out and buy a copy of this EP, I promise you won't be disappointed.

Have Mercy On Us!!!

Ohhh boy. I think it's safe to say that The Bloody Beetroots are losing "it" and need to get "it" "Have Mercy On Us" (the latest track of the TBB) speaks for itself. I have just created a new saying just for the Bloody Beetroots, "Out with the new and in with the old!!!" 

Shit Robot

Hope you guys have a great weekend. Here is a fun track from Shit Robot.

Noob & Brodinski - Peanuts Club

Out soon on Turbo Recordings


Housse De Racket are two guys who grew up in a suburb of Paris and claim to "play stadium music in very small rooms." Housse De Racket have opened for some big acts like Jamie Lidell and Sebastian Tellier. They've also played with The Teenagers, Air, Phoenix, Jean Benoit Dunckel from Air's side project Darkel, and also Gonzales, Jean Claude Vannier, and Bridgette Fontaine. If you haven't caught on already then I guess what I am trying to say is that these guys have proved their talent and need to be listened to!

Wednesday, July 22, 2009


Laidback Luke and Diplo are two of the hardest working artists I can think of so when they come together to make a track you can bet that it's gonna be big. And as if those two names don't get you excited enough there's a full roster of elite remixers who gave their take on the track. It's hard to know what to expect from two artists with such diverse and intricate sounds, but the jungle-rave anthem that came to be is certainly fine with me! I've listened to the entire release, and have now chosen my two favorite remixes, and I'm giving those to you guys so you can have a little taste of the EP. 

Dim Mak's Autoerotique deliver a that remix may be better for someone with a less diverse taste. This remix is a more buckled down electro version of the original that is perfect for exactly the type of party Dim Mak is known for.

The next remix comes from Foamo. If you know Foamo you can probably guess that this remix is all about the bassline. And that is why this remix is my favorite on the release. He adds a fantastic new bassline while keeping the original track alive.


Touring in New York is Boring

MayBB, who is thought to be Benny Benassi's newest alias, is releasing an EP on Kitsuné which just dropped. The EP consists of MayBB's original track which the blogosphere has been raving about for a few weeks now, Touring in New York. The EP also includes a remix I really liked by Blatta & Inesha. If you like the track be sure to go buy a copy of the Touring in New York EP. As a little bonus I included The Count & Sinden's new track, MEGA. It's quite the banger and I highly suggest you take the time to listen to it. It's been a little while since we've seen either of these guys release a track. 

Out now on Kitsuné. Buy it!


It's Going Down

Image and video hosting by TinyPic
Two of electronic music's rising stars have come together to release a single that's aiming to destroy your speakers as soon as possible. What intrigued me about Foamo when I first heard him was his use of catchy hip-hop loops blended with his destructive basslines. He has stuck to that formula for this release, and with Lee Mortimer's help he has created another masterpiece. I'm really digging how they were able to mix dubstep, fidget, and bassline without it sounding overdone and stupid. 

Lee Mortimer & Foamo - It's Going Down (Removed By Request) [Most Fancied]

Out now on Wearhouse Music. Buy it!


Make It Sticky

Sticky K is back with another great remix, and a special treat. Larry Tee's tracks seem to be constantly reworked, no matter whether he's making new material at the time or not. However, with remixes like this one coming I can't get too angry about that. Sticky K keeps to his club style that would fit perfectly in to any DJ's set, and keeps the production at a really professional level. I know this one's gonna be getting some plays this weekend. 

Oh, and the special treat! Sticky K is doing a guest mix for BBC Radio 1 tomorrow, but we have it to listen to ahead of time. This isn't the live on air version, but rather a pre-made recorded version of what the mix is going to be. I'm not quite sure of the exact tracklist so you might have to wait until tomorrow night when he performs it live on Radio 1 for that. 

Speaking of Larry Tee, his classic track "Licky" has been reworked by his side project (with Alexander Technique) Blogula. This new edit features a verse from Santigold.

News/Track Of The Day (7/21/09)

Hey guys sorry I haven't posted too much lately, but now that I'm getting back in to it there's some really cool stuff going on. First of all, look around, we hope you like the new design. Bare with us until it is completely finished. Second of all, despite being months, maybe even years late I finally decided to make a twitter for the blog. I never get to posting on the blog quite as much as I'd like to so maybe this will be an easier way to keep you guys updated on some little things. That's pretty much it. Enjoy this track, and keep on enjoying your summer.

Give It Up

New Sound Pellegrino release from Momma's Boy. Momma's Boy is an alias of Mikix the Cat who usually puts out records on Trouble & Bass. This record like the other Sound Pellegrino records delivers an amazing house groove and will make anyone happy.

So Sincere

Sharkslayer's Don't Go Into The Water EP was a big one for me last year. I enjoyed every track on it, and listened to it quite a few times (especially "Cold As Ice"). I waited patiently for their next serious release, but it didn't come quickly. Luckily I was satisfied with the occasional remix until now, but today I found out that the next EP is on its way! It was meant for release quite a while ago, but never made it out for whatever reason. I guess it's coming out now though so I'm happy. The So Sincere  EP includes 3 original tracks from Sharkslayer as well as a remix from Renaissance Man. All the tracks are really clever bassline focused gems. Here are my favorite two tracks, and keep a look out for the release so you can get the other two.



Doorly is a rather controversial character these days. I've heard many people state that they dislike him because of they way he has taken the idea of a dubstep remix, and made it so simple and formulaic (just a simple remix with a dull dubstep drop). Yet others love him simply because he gives them several new tracks to go crazy to every week. Well I'm not going to argue either way today, but what I like about his new remixes is the one that he titled the "Under New Management Remix". Rather than his usual, expected dubstep mix (don't worry there's one of those also) he went with a 4x4 electro remix that I have been really digging. He knows how to make a good bassline, and the drop on this one is just fun. 


Just Saying

I'm in love with the new L-Vis 1990 EP. It's just two fairly simple tracks, but they are both so brilliantly produced I just can't get enough. No download for this post because I really think you guys should support him on this one. Buy it!

In a year that has already shown us so many great albums, Zombie Nation's Zombielicious is easily one of my favorites so far. It was full of great complex tracks that showed the true colors of well made electronic music. One great thing about electronic music right now is that nearly every good album comes with an even better remix album. And so it came true for Zombielicious! Some of the best remixers in the world joined up on this release, and it is nothing short of brilliant. Today you guys get to have my three favorite tracks off the remix album just because I need to share these gems with the world before I go crazy with joy. 

The first remix comes from one of my favorite new artists. They've been on this blog so much this year it's getting kind of silly, but they're just that good! Hey Today come through with an amazing remix that reminds me very much of ZZT's "Lower State of Consciousness. Then there's Shadow Dancer's remix of "Mystery Meat Affair". This one is slightly different than their usual style, but it might be my favorite remix of theirs yet. Last but not least is Arveene & Misk's remix of my favorite track on the album. The original is fun and I love it, but if you wished it had a little more fire and intensity to it, this is your remix. I can't wait to hear this one on a nice sound system.

Go ahead and consider all of these [Most Fancied]. 

I Want You

I've enjoyed pretty much everything Dre Skull has done yet I never really thought of him as one of my favorite artists or anything. Up until now I guess he just hadn't done anything to really make me notice how much I like his music. His newest EP, however, did just that. The original track is a blissful feel good electro/pop anthem that is guaranteed to lift your mood. The original is great, but I think what really makes this release is the remixes. It is very rare that I find an EP like this where every remix is genuinely great. I have listened to every track on this EP over and over again. It was hard to choose, but I'd have to say the AC Slater remix tops the rest. Bobmo's and Alex Gopher's remixes certainly deserve a mention as well. So here are my two favorite tracks from the release. Enjoy.

6 Million Ways

Two of my favorite electro artists have come together for a collaboration! Sure, it's not their first time working together, but it's still pretty exciting. The new track is called "Die". It is (as expected) a banger with serious club potential, and in case the original is too "2007 era electro" for you and your hipster friends, there are several great remixes that go with it. I'm really hoping this track means we can all look forward to some good new Toxic Avenger tunes coming soon!

Scion A/V Remix Project: Grand Puba

Scion has just recently announced their latest EP in the Remix Project series. In  case you're unaware of what I'm talking about, Scion has been taking classic tracks and making remix EP's for them with some of the hottest new artists. There have been some really cool ones already, and this new one is one of the best so far. They went for more of a dubstep/bass focused release this time, and it turned out great. I haven't been able to pick a favorite yet, but I chose the two that are probably in the real running for my favorite. Maybe you guys could help me pick which one is better?


Other remixes on the release come from Caspa and Reso.

Zodiac Cartel: Weapons of Choice 02

Number 2 of 3 in Zodiac Cartel's Weapons of Choice series is his remix of Santigold's (formerly known as Santogold, in case you were wondering) "L.E.S. Artistes". Zodiac Cartel is giving away 3 free remixes to the public, all at 320 kbps, and with this one done he's 2/3 of the way done. I haven't followed his career extremely closely, but of what I've heard this is easily my favorite track he's made. It's just an excellent fidget/electro remix full of synths and crazy bass. You're going to like this one.

Heartbreaker (Laidback Luke Remix)

I don't like to talk badly about any artist on the blog, but I have to say I was disappointed with MSTRKRFT's new album, Fist of God. I won't go in to the details of why I didn't like it because that's not what this post is about. One of the songs I thought was fairly bearable on the album was the track "Heartbreaker" featuring the previously-MSTRKRFT-remixed John Legend. I guess Laidback Luke and me have similar taste because he just turned in his remix of the track to the RCRD LBL site. It's one of the better Laidback Luke remixes I've heard in a while; it might even beat out the "White Knight Two" remix. It adds a much needed drop in the middle and some creative synth work to go with it. Check it out.

Speaking of Laidback Luke, I just found this remix (also on RCRD LBL) of his new single with Diplo by Bombaman. Really good remix. I can't wait for the original.

*By the way, we've decided to bring back the [Most Fancied] feature upon request from several readers. Hope it's helpful.*

New Trumpdisco

They never seem to disappoint. Trumpdisco have continually brought us hard-hitting ear-splitting electro for the last year or so, and I think they're finally starting to get some recognition! As we watch their rise to stardom here are a few more tracks to keep us satisfied. Their latest original is a wild Proxy-esque electro track. Many artists who make club bangers often shy away from sampling and instead do it all from scratch so it's always interesting to hear an artist use a nice sample even in something harder like this. Speaking of Proxy, this next track is a remix of the enormously-hyped "Who Are You". People went nuts over that clip of The Bloody Beetroots remix, but we might have another contender for best remix of "Who Are You" right here. Enjoy.
