Kings of Leon

I've been rinsing a version of Kings of Leon's 'Sex on Fire' of late and to be honest it's getting a bit old. Right on time, Dolby Anol have come through with a new remix in the shape of King's new tune 'Use Somebody'... Think this is a rough edit, but I like it anyway!

Poney Poney

I found these lads last year and thought they would be huge by now based on this song...
I was wrong.

So, just in case you're unaware, they're from Paris, France and this particular song is produced by Xavier de Rosnay (the smaller Justice man). This song has been released on the "Cross The Fader" EP and it really is fantastic.
Makes you wanna dance...
Lots.

Nice video too!



Check out their MySpace too for more!

Also, here's the tune for you to own and enjoy!

On another note, Google maps have just gone and made us all feel that bit more paranoid. This is insane.
(Excuse the silly presenter man)



I'm thinking, if that's what we can do. Imagine what all the governments and shit can do... :o

Pocket Pianist

Ed Banger are a funny old label. I know I shouldn't like their stuff coz it's all a bit cliché but every so often they come out with some really good music. Forget your Justice, Feadz and Uffie, for me, Ed Banger is all about Mickey Moonlight, Oizo and Mehdi. 
3 bangin remixes of 'Pocket Piano' have just dropped and further confirm my theory that Mehdi is the only innovative producer in the Ed Banger camp.
I was lucky enough to get the Japanese release of 'Lucky Boy' the last time I was over there, complete with added artwork and extra tracks, well worth it!!
Posted below are the 3 remixes in question adding new life to the already great original along with Scenario Rock's 'Both Gotta Move On' from which Mr. Mehdi took the piano sample.

heartsrevolution

"A revolution without dancing is a revolution not worth having", apparently. The NY hipsters are back, this time with the help of Spankrock. He's traded in the bootay bass for floaty electro dreaminess... The result is below. I'm really into this at the mo. My iPod tune of the week.

I think this is worth sharing.

Have a taste, it's fresh.

Crafty Beggars Showcase

Doors 10pm . Tickets are e10 in advance via www.tickets.ie or e12 on the door.

more info : The Twisted Pepper

MORE INFO :

Kuduro house, an Angolan sub-genre unknown to most, has been causing quite a stir in Portugal and underground clubs worldwide over the last year, and the trio largely responsible for spear heading the scene outside of Angola are Buraka Som Sistema. Kuduro consists fast high energy bass heavy beats n basslines with clear influences taken from African roots music, hip-hop, baltimore, dancehall & so on, and you'll hear it echoing all round Angolan neighbourhoods. What's also special about Kuduro is the unusual dance that accompanies - what seems like a cross between breakdancing, voodoo & caribbean ass jiggling. Intrigued?

Buraka Som Sistema have been blowing up steadily and their full live show has been blowing crowds away across clubs & festival this summer. They are due to release their debut album Black Diamond next Feb with their hit single "Sound of Kuduro" featuring M.I.A. They also released the Buraka EP as an introduction to Kuduro late last year with the hit "Yahh" being dropped in sets by the likes of Diplo, Sinden, Martelo & DJ Craze.

Lovely Live Album



Justice - A Cross The Universe (Ed Banger)

After nearly 2 years of filling the world's electro-lover's ears. The French duo have released this live album. When I first saw this album mentioned on 'The Lemur Blog', I thought to myself, "Aw no, not another attempt to make just a bit more money". Because at this stage, I think almost everybody is a bit sick of the pair.
But I was clearly intrigued, so I downloaded it. And to my surprise, I was instantly impressed. Even though I had seen this exact live show a few times. It sounds great recorded. It opens up with a self remix of probably their coolest track 'Genesis' and mixes nicely, using their steam-like sounds into 'Phantom Part 1'. Also when you realize what track is coming in, the crowd realize at that same moment and let a huge roar, which for me, gives me a tingle down my spine. On this album Justice were not afraid to admit and use two remixes of their songs, using Mstrfkrft's D.A.N.C.E and Soulwax's Phantom Part 2. Which, for me, are both better than the original mixes.
So the album instantly grabbed me and only got better. Not one track is the same as the original mix and is either remixed by themselves or producers that are just as good. Every track is just that bit heavier. Which is, in fairness, what I think most of us want from the Parisians.
The best track on album is 'Phantom Part 2'. They start the 10 minute version of this song with a sample from 'Killing In The Name' by Rage Against The Machine' and goes into a choppy, teasier and heavier version of the Soulwax version.
For me, this was a bit of nostalgia. It made me remember exactly why I was in love with Justice for a good 4 months. And as live albums go it is not far off the perfect "Alive" from Daft Punk.
8/10

New Jack

I first got into DJing through my love for all things New Jack. This was way back in the mid 90s and I was being educated in this field by a dude I went to school with. We missed the boat on the whole thing first time around on account of us being about 5 when Teddy Riley and Bobby Brown were doing their thing, but the discovery of films like 'Boyz N the Hood', 'House Party' and obviously 'New Jack City' opened up a whole new world of music for us. I've posted below, just for nostalgia's sake, a few of my favorites and also a sweet remix of  Bell Biv Devoe's classic 'Poison'

Jade - Don't Walk Away (1993)


Bell Biv DeVoe - Poison (1990)


Johnny Gill - Rub You The Right Way (1990)


TLC - Ain't Too Proud To Beg (1992)



Some 'modern' music tomorrow ;)

FOAMO


First post in a long time, moved gaf and had no net for like 2 weeks... Head-wrecker... Anyway, I'm gonna keep the posts coming thick and fast and first up is this new banger from London's own Foamo. I'm a huge fan. First introduced to him a few months back through his simply flawless Summer Mix, which I grabbed over on Discobelle. The chap's only 21 and turning out some ridiculous production that's seriously rivaling some of the big boys.
Top tunes of his to look out for are '930 530', 'Rockerman' and his remix of Primary 1's 'Hold Me Down', which, I'm told by his good friend Detboi, was actually turned down by their label!!! Idiots...
Anyways, here's his latest offering, a remix of Mystery Jets 'Half In Love With Elizabeth', and it doesn't disappoint... Enjoy
