Nighty Max – Beach Hut

You know the drill. Nighty Max = awesome. Download, play, dance, repeat.

I love the sample and when it kicks in Nighty mixes it up and throws you off just a bit but in a totally good way.

Metronomy x Joakim

I’m only a fan of Metronomy remixes, like the Breakbot and the Diskjokke remixes. Joakim revises Metronomy’s new track “Not Made for Love” – he is quite bold by starting the track off upbeat and slowing it down – I feel like that is a ballsy and blasphemous thing to do with a dance track, but he pulls it off. I’m a big fan of what Joakim has been doing lately – looking forward to more stuff.

Unreleased: Phoenix – Jetplane (Live)

Here is a live unreleased track from Phoenix that they played at the Southside festival in 2005, Jetplane. It was slated to be on It’s Never Been Like That but didn’t make the cut. It is definitely a different vibe for them and a b-side sounding track. Thomas Hedlund (drums) channels his Steward Copeland at some points in the tune to give it a very Police-y sound. Thoughts?

Fake Blood works his production magic on The Gossip – I love the reverse piano, dark stuff.

Asian Dan Interview: GLOVES

1. Who is GLOVES? How would you describe your music?

Gloves is me, Yama Indra. I also have wealth of talented friends that I collaborate on tracks with sometimes. A lot of the originals I have coming up feature contributions from friends. Up until now it’s been almost all disco & house orientated dance music, I have some new material I’ll be releasing later in the year though, there’ll be more dance music but there’s also some pop, soundtrack & RnB influenced tracks.

2. What are your influences, musical or otherwise? What are your first
musical memories?

Musically I have been into just about every genre at one time or another. Over the last year I’ve been listening to mainly RnB (old & new), 70’s Jazz, 70’s Psych & as always a lot of disco & house music. \
Other influences? Well I love giallo films, good food, playing tennis on Wednesday’s with Melbourne’s pop/disco/house mafia, traveling, thunderstorms, swimming, adventure & of course hanging tough with my
girlfriend & pals. The very first musical memory I can recall involved my sisters & I performing a dance & karaoke routine to Madonna ‘Material Girl’ in for our parents & their friends on a camping trip. I think we also did Poison’s ‘Nothing but a good Time’ & Michael Jackson’s ‘BAD’. Pretty lame huh. That & spending endless hours learning classical pieces on the family piano.

An amazing 5 min minimix brought to you by GRUM. This is an example of how musical and complex “DJing” can get. I love it.
