I've been listening to lots of disco (nu, cosmic, italo, blah blah) stuff of late and this aeroplane remix is absolutely delicious. Aeroplane's eponymous track from last year was one of my faves, i just love their production and what they've done with this already great soulwax product pop record is absolutely spine tingling. 10x10x10x10x10x...
A fix of pure POP that I suspect has pushed me into a period of dependency that will inevitably end in an OD and a rehab backlash. Still, right now my eyes are rolling in my skull.. mmmnnnnugh....
This, my first upload in far too long, was inspired by the wonderfull CBS top 100
which like last years top 100 looks like being my sole playlist for the next few months. This track, just one of many great entries in this years list, is gorgeous, warm, vocoded electro - can't get enough of those melancholy robots!
1982 ish. doo-wop electro. recorded on the same night as planet rock using the same backing track - Read this user review on discogs
1970's nigerian rock; great organ, nicely repetitive vocals, dancey rhythm...7-8 minutes long....
found it on a facebook group. think it was on some french/belgian blogs last year. the original appears to have been released between 73-77. sounds like a pilooski edit. apart from that i know nothing. sorry that's not very descriptive..
Hey I'm expecting some stick for this. it's surely more self indulgent than andre's XTC post for example. this '87 Arthur Baker mix oozes the balearics and is definately a classic that i think still sounds great.
3 minute Electronic Pop. Been far too long between posts, so by way of an excuse here's half of gabba's partner labels
new release I've been promoting in advance of its release on Bleep
No.3. in a sporadic series of favorite basslines.Unashamed
pop perfection. I love the single mix too, but the deceptively simple bassline in this mix really gets my id. However, I'm prepared for a few snippy comments about how this isn't bleeding edge cool enough. Fools!
Lots of reverb. An asymmetrical dubstep sort of rhythm. Loud and dark.
Fuzzy house / Melted plastic. The antithesis of that Alexander Robotnick track, an epic chunk of bounce and turbulence.
Well, seeing as I mentioned it: Swedish guitarpop from 2006 and i mean Swedish guitarpop in the best possible sense of the words. ;)
Sassy! Fresh Electro-hop from Chicago's Kid Sister.
I admit I don't follow Kompakt releases religiously but 2007 has been rather a good year for the label and I've found myself enjoying very much their last string of releases.
Opening this year they released the single, Trauermusik, which has become one of my favorite tracks coming from the label. The song was created by the collaborative unison of Ewan Pearson and Al Usher under the moniker, Partial Arts. Ever since I first heard it in February it's been on constant repeat on my player and I can safely say it hasnt lost one inch of splendour.
Breaking my own rules..Major label sponsored Remixes seem to be default mp3 blog fodder by the looks of the Xeroxed blogs on the hype machine
, much as remixes used to be the way of selling rather weak re-packaged CDR singles for 99p a few years ago.
Anyway, I'm not sure this remix is major label sponsored and its certainly not weak, Trevor Jackson
takes this potential electro-pop-radio monster back in time to somewhere between hip-house and old-rave (1990 to be precise), a Waltzer
Skepticism is overruled on this jumpin' 'n' pumpin' remix. If the house piano and the James Brown sample weren't enough, you'll be doing yourself a great favor by making it to the 3:00 mark when the song crossed over the event horizon and is pulled apart on the atomic level... and then re-assembled on the other side.
Defining Moments. More optimism and self congratulation as we're 5
today, so here's DJ Hells first record, before the haircuts and the clash-fashion nonsense that the original International DJ Gigolo
is now associated with this slice of European visionary electronics happily defies fashion, as I hope Gabba will for the next 5 years. Thanks Dee x
