Dub FX


I stumbled on this guy a few days ago and I can't stop listening to him!
I can't find much about him other than that he comes from St Kilda in Melbourne, Australia. And after being in various bands he decided to tour the world, busking with his girlfriend, "Flower Fairy", from city to city!
He uses a Roland BOSS loop station, and various effects including octave pedals and reverbs etc. He layers his voice over and over and produces a track live. And he's fucking good at it.

Just check him out:

Whopper...

Check out his MySpace
Also, his Official Site

Peace and love!

Redlight indicates doors are secured!

After listening to Rusko's essential mix over and over and over (get it, it's whopper!) I kept waiting for it to hit a certain bit every time! This bit, amidst all the grimy filthy lovely Dubstep goodness, was so energetic and fun yet fit perfectly in the mix. Rusko you legend...
When i got around to looking it up, It turns out it's "Redlight and the Voodoos"... Yeah, never heard of them either. So I poked around and discovered that Redlight is the alter ego of "Clipz". Clipz has made a name for himself on the Drum and Bass scene over the last few years with his energetic ravey style. Catching the attention of Roni Size and getting signed to Full Circle records at 22. Prick!
I checked out Redlight and he's got some great stuff going! I believe he's producing at the moment so keep an ear out.
It seems he's mates with Rusko so I can't get my hands on a copy of the tune in Rusko's mix... yet!

Here's the bit from the mix anyhow:


Here's a good half-hour mix too (and he finishes off with a bit of Dubstep and the amazing Skream remix of LaRoux we all love so much!!):

The buzz is all about Aeroplane at the moment! With all the trashy electro and filthy techno about these days (which i LOVE don't get me wrong!) Aeroplane are dishing out a breath of fresh air with this balearic-y, disco-y, italo goodness!

The duo, from belgium released their first 12" in 2007 on Eskimo Records and since then have quickly ascended the ranks! Getting propositioned to do remixes for the likes of Bloc Party, Cut Copy, Das Pop, MGMT, Grace Jones and Friendly Fires. Furthering the inde/dance partnership that has been thriving over the last couple of years.
Oh, and the two lads, Stephen Fasano and Vito Deluca, got together when Stephen got to know Vito through buying records in Vito's record shop!!... fantastic...

Skream Remix La Roux + Daft Punk Game

First off, I have to show you this song because I've been listening to it fora good 3 or 4 weeks now, and have not yet grown sick of it. When Midfield General played a cracking set downstairs in Mr.Jones a while back, he finished up his set with this beautiful track. Basically, the whole room went real dreamy, as the start of the song is. Then the amazing vocals come in and finally lead up to the drum n bassy outro. Where it uses the same vocals chopped up nicely. It was one of the best finishers I've seen in a while. And because it's a Skream remix, it has that warpy, dubby feel to it also.

La Roux - In For The Kill (Skream Remix) right click and save






Next up. I was on one of favourite blogs Penned Madness there today and came across the Daft Punk game. It's pretty funny and good craic. Basically the story is Justice have robbed Daft Punk's samples and you have to get them back. Simple.

Go to Daft Punk Game


And lastly, just because it's really funny. One of my favourite sketches from one of my favourite sketch shows, Big Train. And please watch it, it's only 16 seconds long.

Oren Lavie - Her Morning Elegance

(Firstly the picture of the wolf has nothing to do with the song I'm sharing. But I've decided to put a nice picture up with every post I do.)


Here's a song that a friend recommended. Not only is the song pretty good but it has an even better video to go with it. You can't go wrong with stop motion.
