Carte Blanche : The Molecules

Carte Blanche’s “White Man on the Moon” EP is out now and is yet a continuation of their journey into HOUSE. In honor of the release here is track that didn’t make the EP (probably due to sample clearance issues), “The Molecules” – a tune that samples Prince’s “Let’s Go Crazy” monologue. Just imagine this track as a hymn for the Church of HOUSE.

Asian Dan Interviews: Jean Nipon

1. Who is Jean Nipon? What is your background? What is it like to be part of the Institubes family?
I’m a DJ, producer, and omelette eater.
I used to be drummer for some straight edge bands, then more emo or noise.
Institubes is such a great team, cuz we’re all different but we share the same love for ghetto music and shitty F.M. music. Its like: we do mainstream music but for specific people 🙂

2. What are your influences, musical or otherwise?
My main influence is girls, how you get them and how they throw you away. Then its a mix between Descendents, Technotronic, Don Caballerro, Prince, Johnnie to, Minor threat, Knut Hamsun, Saul Steinberg, Céline, KRS one, Tyree Cooper and some Joe Walsh. The best if you want to do some house music its to listen the complete opposite; like this you have more chance to create something original.

3. What is your DJ philosophy? Your production style?
When I play I always try to avoid playing the obvious stuff. The challenge is to entertain the crowd with some obscure gems. Like an old piano house track or maybe throw some 70’s hard rock. Anyway if the girls keep jumpin’ its all good. So whatever I play I must please the ladies. When I produce I think “Can I play this tune without thinking” so its often a matter of reduction. Less hi hat, less synth, less breaks. Tryin’ to obtain the core of a good dance track. It never come easy.

4. What are your top 5 songs that make you want to dance?
Oh boy! Ok so for this moment it would be:

1-Gemini- Stand Up
2-Prince – Pop Life
3-Jess and Crabbe- In Your Ear
4-James Gang – Walk Away
5-Beatles- Twist and fuckin’ Shout

5. What are you listening to right now that you can’t get enough of? What is the next big thing?
Well right now I don’t know . Everyday I discover some old electro disco jams with some crazy sounds into, so I’m not excited about a lot of new things; but wait oh yeah I’m into hardhouse again !! Dudes like DJ Trajic or Less Furious CZR. For me this music from the past is still the next future. Now the glam electro pop and guitar stuff are on the top, but I think the answer will come from the ghetto music.

6. Future plans?
Next will be the “Eurogirls go Baltimore” Vol. 2 with DJ Orgasmic and many guests? It will be hugely stoopid? And on September my ep “Wild at Heart” on Institubes.

BREAKBOT Remixes


I love Breakbot’s production style. It is so 70s sounding. His bass samples are so good and real sounding, they remind me of Fred Falke’s bass playing. Hall & Oates and Steely Dan would be proud of what Breakbot is doing.

This track could be the next D.A.N.C.E, with the little children singing and that funky piano part.
PNAU – Baby (Breakbot Remix)

This sounds like a Prince track.
Pacific! – Hold Me (Breakbot Remix)

Checkout his great remix of Late of the Pier’s “Bathroom Gurgle”.

Jamie Lidell – Figured Me Out (Alt. Version)
Cheers, Fluo Kids

Jamie Lidell is bringing the heavy funk this time. Prince would be proud. The verse of this track is so tight, that pop of the snare just makes you jump. I dig this track more than that track that Warp Records posted on youtube. Jamie Lidell’s crazy looping program that he uses live to record his beatboxing, harmonies and other crazy vocal parts were all programmed and created by him in Max/Msp. Jonny Greenwood also uses Max/Msp to create custom glitched out guitar effects. The creator of Max/Msp & Cycling 74 is also the same guy that created the Jazzmutant Lemur Pad.

So, Radiohead isn’t the most pretentious band on earth.
