The Semantics Of Fisting

February 26, 2007

Gosh, it’s been a long old weekend spent on the lash and kipping on friends sofas. Had some red stripe fuelled fun at Hot Sauce on Friday, caught Bonde do Role make the crowd go mental at Chalk on Saturday, watched Chelsea and Arsenal exchange handbags in a pub that felt like it was on the outskirts of hell then popped into bloggers delight for a wee bit (and nicked a Get Rude badge off Miss Odd Kidd in the process) but spent most of the time out the back giggling about the correct techniques for fisting (nuff said)

Tonight i’m off to see Paddy Wolf and Bishi (hotttness) at the ICA and tommorow it’s the Dazed Ed Banger party (Guess the Special Guest! Guess the Special Guest!)

plus I’ve got some bubbling interviews lined up this week (technology permitting *spies minidisc suspiciously*) Enough guff about how splendid my weekend was, I have lots of shiny new music to share!

First up, newling production outfit Blamma! Blamma! sent me through a couple of remixes they have done of electro rock types Headland. The lovely Acid Girls have already featured some of their previous work and the Love Hate remix has already sneaked its way onto the playlists of several national radio shows (Kiss Xfm on Radio 1)

The mark of a good track is when it sounds just as good to my ears sober the next day as it does when I’m listening to it for the first time half cut on mexican rum and orange/cranberry juice. These tracks definitely do, they are almost certainly a bit unhinged, and not really something you should be listening to first thing on a Monday whilst you are sipping on your skinny latte and shoving a pan au chocolat down your cakehole.

Headland – Love Hate (Blamma! Blamma! Morgasm mix)

Headland – Dogging Sisters (Blamma! Blamma! Remix)

Man Recordings, keeping the baile funk scene lively, are doing a new series of EPs entitled Baile Funk Masters (pretty self explanatory really) and the first one, put together by DJ Sandrinho is dropping this week on vinyl. Sandrinho was responsible for a superb Gotan Project Remix recently, and has worked on MIA and Edu K remixes in the past – this is more of the same i.e. raw, uncut booty music with the rudimentory usage of cheeky samples (danzel´s eurohouse hit “pump it up”)

Man Recordings kindly sent me through some Sandrinho mp3 samples a short while ago, but i’ve only just got round to posting them – this shit will only be up for seven days and seven nights so show some Man love and grab the ep from phonica

DJ Sandrinho – Italiano Lento

DJ Sandrinho – Pumpere Up

Audioporno have been keeping busy on the reeeemix front, after giving the Infants a speshul rerub they’ve now turned their skilled production hands to hard working Liverpool band To My Boy (check their gig list for evidence) and they sent it to little old me! This is a Superb glitchy house rework of an indie guitar track, it’s a very good look right now

To My Boy – Model (Audioporno Remix)

Ursula 1000 sent me through some new material thats coming out next month on ESL Music. A track entitled Electrik Boogie, which is on a real 80s electrofunkwelovePrince tip and reminds me of Superthriller and Chromeo.

I’ve been looking out for Ursula 1000 stuff since I heard the Faint remix on the Cut Copy Fabric mix last year so I was somewhat happy when he got in touch! Check the furry animal costume video here too!

Ursula 1000 – ElectrikBoogie

Finally, Glaswegian music collective Five20East hooked me up with some forthcoming fruits and one track in particular stood out. Grizzle’s low slung cut up hiphop track Edgy Sketch that reminds me of Tipper and Danny Break, and utilises quite smartly what sounds like a junkyard band drum break to me – booming!

Grizzle – Edgy Sketch

Check the rest of Five20East’s output on their website – Deportivo Street Team seem to be somewhat tasty too
