WICKED WAYS

June 28, 2009

Another contender for THEE summer track is danish techno guru Trentemøller´s wobbaly reggae edit of the timeless classic Wicked Games by Chris Isaak. It´s got it all and more

Chris Isaak – Wicked Game (Trentemoller Businessman Dubby Games Remix)

Oh, and before I forget…

Rest In Peace fallen King.

With THAT catalogue to choose from, it´s easier to think outside the box. I´m going with this edit by Canadian funkophiliac U-Tern.

Michael Jackson – Pretty Young Thing (Demo) (U-Tern Edit)

CONGOLAL

June 27, 2009

Here comes a unbelievably funky and sexy tune from Hamburgs funk doctor Tensnake. The track has summer written all over it. The enveloping bass line with the catchy synth stabs and all around dreamy atmosphere will sit well with anyone when it´s miller time.

It caught my ear whilst listening to the Runaway compilation 21st Century Disco, which in itself is a good buy. The original 12″ came out las year on Mule Musiq´s sister label Endless Flight.

Tensnake – Congolal

Tensnake also did the latest addition of the Beats In Space radio show. Worth a listen, check it out here.

THE DEAD HILLBILLIES

June 22, 2009

In may of this year Tigersushi released what has proven to be maybe the most engaging album this year thus fare. Krikor is probably best known for his minimal disco stompers, but on Land of the Truth he exercises a different muscle, and to great success, even though the minimalist techno also has its grip held firmly around the structure of the album. Good as gold!

DISCO CUBEISM

June 17, 2009

Eclectic, according to Webster´s Dictionary is “selecting what appears to be best in various doctrines, methods, or styles” or “composed of elements drawn from various sources”. Now I can´t really say this Fact Magazine mix from Emperor Machine is eclectic, but it´s certainly different. It´s all the same genre of music, so it´s not from different sources, but it´s a genre most of us are not too familiar with.

Webster´s definition is not fitting, so what about Andy Meecham (the architect behind the mix)? His definition is: “It’s just a load of tracks that I’m listening to right now – a compilation I made to play in the car.” I can go for that.

Emperor Machine – Fact Magazine Mix no. 57

Tracks
1. Nina Nardini – Afro-Beat
2. The Natural yoghurt band – Voodoo
3. The Fitzcarraldo Variations – Gamma Modelo
4. Bajka – The Only Religion I Believe
5. The Starlights – Mao Mao
6. The Natural Yoghurt Band – Soft Cheese
7. Snakefinger – What Wilbur
8. Dynastie Krisis – Faust ’72
9. C.C.S. – Brother
10. Spin – Grasshopper
11. Venus Gang – Love To Fly
12. Antonio Carlos & Jocafi – Desacato
13. Dory Previn – Mary C. Brown and The Hollywood Sign (Emperor Machine Mix)

Plus they have an album out called Space Beyond The Egg, so cop that here.

LOVE THE NIGHT AWAY

June 15, 2009

This summers soundtrack is here, and it´s brought to us by Germany´s DJ Kaos in for of a remix by Sweden´s IDIB affiliates Tiedye.

The slow burn of the bongos and tropicana guitar loop is perfect for a sunny get away. The 12″ is out now of DFA Records.

MY CHILDREN SLEEP NEXT TO TE ECHOCHAMBER

June 14, 2009

Another day, another mixtape. This time around it´s from one half of the dirty disco duo Padded Cell, Richard Sen. Funky basslines and wobbly guitars are served along with cream filled kicks and snares, maybe because the tracks presented here are all from the Milky Disco stable.

Or maybe not…

BRASH & VULGAR

June 8, 2009

The latest in the Fact Magazine mix series is by Brooklyn´s own In Flagranti, and it´s a good one. Just thought i´de do a bit of sharing.

Sasha Crnobrnja and Alex Gloor to their mates and mums, the pair made a name for themselves with their forward-thinking Italo and electro confections on their own Codek label as well as Eskimo and Kitsune, and have remixed the likes of WhoMadeWho and Diskokaine. You can usually spot an In Flagranti record from the mucky titles (‘Sexx Piss Tool’ is our fav) and dirty cover art, which just makes us like them more.

Their FACT mix is a right old stomper basically, and features edits of Killing Joke, The Breeders and The Glitter Band, as well as original material from YACHT, Fancy Beat and more.

In Flagranti – Fact Magazine Mix no. 54

Tracks

Medieval Pundits Atomizer (In Flagranti Mix)
In Flagranti – Svelte Blonde
Glitter Band (In Flagranti Edit)
Yuksek (In Flagranti Mix)
Temptations / Glass House (In Flagranti Edit)
BEF / Money (In Flagranti Edit)
Fancy Beat – Funk In (Telespazio Remix)
Supercycle – No Kitty Bad Kitty
Sweet Louise (In Flagranti Edit)
YACHT – Summer Song
Smoke and Mirrors Nearly There Break
Roy Ayers (In Flagranti Edit)
Timo Maas Break
Glitter Band (In Flagranti Edit)
Killing Joke (In Flagranti Edit)
