CONTINENT

October 29, 2009

Today sees the release of the long awaited debut album from Canada´s leading italo-disco maestro CFCF. He has given us some wonderful remixes in the past, like the Crystal Castles remix that shot him to fame. He even made a shitty track by The Teenagers into my pick for best pop song of 2007.

However, the album is a bit disappointing, not for a lack of quality, but rather a lack of an album feel. We have heard many of the tracks before, on account of them having been released on compilations and ep´s, or just been gliding around the blogosphere. I think CFCF would have gotten more out of releasing the unreleased tracks as ep´s or 12″´s. As Jay Shockley in his Fact Magazine review said: “All signs pointed to ‘great’ with CFCF’s debut album […] But instead, I got an instrumental record that often sounds very nice, but rarely achieves much beyond that.”
But if you see each song individually, this really is a great album, and I have chosen some highlights.

HALLOWEEN

October 29, 2009

The most fun made up corporate holiday is coming up, and Oh Heavenly Dog brings you the obligatory Halloween mix. I have chosen to go the way of creepy soundtrack music, as opposed to the horror club direction many dj´s take. It´s a collection of horror trailer clips and my favorite scores from my favorite horror flicks. Please enjoy.

SHOW U

October 27, 2009

Another slow wonder from the Ooft camp. Craig Smith aka 6th Borough Project just recently dropped a new ep on Delusions of Grandure. This is probably an edit too, but I don´t know of what. But it doesn´t matter because it´s a great track.

GRANDADBOB

October 24, 2009

Another track that´s been getting heavy rotation at Oh Heavenly Dog HQ, is this little ditty by Sheffield two piece Grandadbob. It was featured in my Stratosphere Boogie Mix from a month back. It comes in remix form, and the artist is new disco masochist Al Usher, good people.

MODE

October 23, 2009

I have been listening to the new Body Language Mix by Germany´s Modeselektor quite a bit these last few weeks. It´s a compelling mix of techno, dub step, house and indie rock seamlessly put together by what is one of the greatest dj duos out there. I present a few of the highlights from the mix, but frankly they all sound better within the confines of the mix. So do yourself a favor a buy the mix HERE.

Boy 8-Bit is a ginger kid from England.

Siriusmo is a french person.

Moderat is Modeselektor and Apparat.

STEEL

October 21, 2009

Been busy, sorry for lack of posting. But today I bring you an Oh Heavenly Dog exclusive! My main man Stanley Steel aka Remi has made a top notch edit of 90´s club love songe “Touch Me” by Cathy Dennis. The best parts of the original are kept, then tossed in with some boogie funk action.

MP3 Cathy Dennis – Touch Me (Steel´s LOVE Edit)

KEEP

October 6, 2009

One of the Dog´s favorite dj´s and producers, Cousin Cole, sent over a new (official) remix he did. The track being remixed is British folk singer Pete Lawrie´s “All That Wee Keep”. The song will be featured on his album coming out next year, and judging by the tracks on his myspace it will probably be a good one.

For now, put yourself at ease with the mighty cousin´s remix.

DOLLSKA

October 2, 2009

A bit of a slept on pop number this, at least to my knowledge. And that´s a shame, because it´s quite good, and Dollskabeat probably has loads more to bring to our ears. I wouldn´t be surprised if there is an album on the horizon. This track is from the ep of the same name and came out back in may.

Dollskabeat – Zodiac Rising
