The 90s are back. Remember that dude who was dancing in that bleeding room? Well here he is again. Jamiroquai gets the Penguin Prison disco pop treatment for his latest single “White Knuckle Ride” creating a super disco meets late 80s New Edition sounding pop. Once again such an amazing drum sounds from Mr. Prison.
A very bittersweet and trudging remix by Tiga who strips down “Shelter” down to its bare bones. Thus creating a hypnotic and deep track perfect for those after-afterparties.
A few words from Mr. Tiga himself:
“There’s just something special about making out in London, your mouth bursting with toffee and emotion, that ugly ferris wheel thing looming in the distance…This remix is a love letter to British Romance, from the heart of a Canadian Revolutionary.”
Friendly Fire’s singer bro does his best Dave Gahan impression on this cover of “Strangelove” for the upcoming Gucci Guilty campaign. A star studded collaboration with a commercial shot by Frank Miller starring Evan Rachel Wood. This is one of my favorite Depeche Mode songs and Friendly Fires adds their touch in a good way to the song. I especially like that they retain the way Dave Gahan says “A-gain” during the bridge.
This post is the first of many weekly guest posts from the one and only Todd Edwards. He agreed to grace us with some of his House music wisdom with quintessential tracks of the canon of House music as well as tracks that heavily influenced and mean a lot to Todd himself. First off is a track by Todd Terry, “Slam Jam” that samples my fav Ramjam song “Black Betty”. Also Todd Edwards offers up his remix of the legendary Dusseldorf quartet, Kraftwerk’s “Numbers”.
“Todd Terry’s productions were the first that I studied in depth. He lead the way in sample-based house track productions from the late 80’s, and from then on was known as “Todd The God”. (That’s catchy) “Slam Jam” had Todd’s signature drums running under a simple bassline which sounded more like a sample of a sound than an actual keyboard synth, rawww!!! The track is filled with catchy samples running through it. It was always a great feeling when I stumbled across a record where Mr. Terry got his samples from. Todd’s beats and use of samples gave him his signature sound. When you put on a Todd Terry record, you know it’s Todd Terry. So, that’s what I set out to do. He inspired me to create a sound that would be reconginzable to anyone who played my tracks. I owe him a big thanks for being the first of my house music inspirations. Of course, he should know this by now because I told him every chance I saw him at the clubs in the 90’s.”
Yet another fantastic quality 33 minute mix from my favorite Ed Banger DJ, DJ Mehdi. I will let the mix and tracklist speak for itself. Enjoy some exclusive tracks such as some new Carte Blanche remixes and a new Cassius that is a pseudo-dubstep/La Funk Mob sounding track.
Gold Panda’s “Snow & Taxis” is a delicately crafted song that conjures introspective and contemplative thoughts a la Mount Kimbie/Burial/Four Tet but in a very uplifting and positive way with its House-y beats and sparkling glockenspiel. This is a perfect tune to listen to as the summer winds down and the crisp autumn air rolls in.
More like we have been waiting for too long for this remix. Classic “banger” remix via the Soulwax boys but still so good and what better to accompany this banger than a super weird and mutated version of the hipster girl filled original video to one of my fav singles of the year, “Best In The Class”.
An amazing remix of a classic 90s slow jam by Groove Theory via Joy Orbison’s protege, George Fitzgerald. A chilled out, UK, off-kiltered, delicate, dance track that echoes and recontextualizes the 90s in the best way possible. Cheers, Mr. Fitzgerald.
The mighty Flying Lotus cannot be stopped. He is a force that is out to prove he is just a constant flow of creativity and sonic goodness. “Cosmogramma” showed us that he is a musical guru with tracks like “Do The Astral Plane” which has been a summer hit for me. His next EP “Pattern+Grid World” is out 9.21.2010 worldwide on the amazing Warp Records. Listen to “Camera Day” below!
As we all wait for a new Friendly Fires album this latest Bugged Out Suck My Deck mix mixed by the trio will have to suffice. The UK trio teams up with the Toronto House duo to produce a track that pays homage to the classic NYC House sound that we all know and love. Listen to “Stay Here” a track made exclusively for this mix, maybe this is a hint to what the new album will sound like.
