Full Clout

April 16, 2007

I am currently encountering problems with the internuts at Slutty Fringe Towers – normal service will resume shortly. In the meantime, here’s a lil snippet of the veritable feast of music that’s been slipped underneath my door.

Raoul Duke, head of Ra!Ra!Ra! Music hooked me up with a sneaky blend he did at a party last week that had the Bondai girls doin the shoulder lean – quite simple really, the accapella of The Jump Off by Plastic Little over the slow burning Rainbow Man by Busy P – lavvly

Busy Plastic – Rainbow Jump (Raoul Duke Mixup)

Time for more Hannah Holland word love – for she has furnished me with a shiny new production entitled Crackney, a rather splendid two step stunna that combines sexy vocals with some extremely dirty low end bass action – expect more of this at her Booty Bass night at Old Blue Last at the end of May

Hannah Holland – Crackney

Finally, hottt new track from French kid with magic in his head, Felix Cartal! After a bit of a brief hiatus, felix is back with Drugs, a track that is the embodiment of being on the dancefloor at 3am wonked out on MDMA getting familiar with a girl with blonde curls in a Chicago Bulls Jordan vest and denim hotpants – well thats what comes to mind when I hear it…

Felix Cartal – Drugs

On a different note, I spent yesterday afternoon in Greenwich Park taking advantage of the rather splendid weather and reading a fucking brilliant little book that tells the story  behind the making of the seminal Beastie Boys record Pauls Boutique – written by Dan Le Roy and part of a series called 33 1/3  you really need to be checking this book – you can pick them up for only 4 quid at Fopp. Essential reading!

Come Around

April 10, 2007

I’ve been a bit slack on the old writing sillyness about music over the Bank Holiday – too busy having fun at Keepup! in Brixton and Thugs N Hugs in Shoreditch – gosh if Sinden didn’t smash it for 2 hours at the Legion on Sunday (ps look out for the Herve remix of NYPC!!)

and check the Patchwork Pirates Thugs N Hugs promo mix here

So ever since Miss Odd Kidd tipped me off about Late Of The Pier, I’ve been hit with some nicenice remixes of them and now I have another relick of Space And The Woods, this time a 8 bit influenced take by the ever so prolific Barringtone!

Late Of The Pier – Space And The Woods (Barringtone Remix)

Speaking of Miss Odd Kidd, girl has some hefty US producers on her case right now – expect some major remix heat yes – One such producer is William Russell who hooked me up with his mad decent remix of the Timbaland and MIA track Come Around – Personally I can’t wait to hear what he does for Miss Odd Kidd

Timbaland & M.I.A. – Come Around (William Russell Remix)

Bass Bass Bass

Street Bass Anthems, the shiny new compilation of blends and refixs all done by Philly DJ/Producer Dev79 hits the Street Based Shops in the next week – though you can cop it at Seclusias and Dev 79’s site now.

As another taster of what to expect he’s leaked another track from the CD – A bass heavy refix of JR Writer’s Get Em which along with Thizz Freak gives you a good idea of the standard of Street Bass Anthems

JR Writer – Get Em (Dev79 Street Bass Refix)

I recently got together for a chat with up and coming producer Suicide Dogz – responsible for killer beats on Miss Odd Kidd tracks – to discuss all things music and Claudia Winkleman….

Bam A Lam

April 5, 2007

Flagrant Fowl – home to rising US production duo Cousin Cole & Pocketknife has just released a new EP entitled Tougher Than Featherz and it’s a bit special. Anything that gets some word love from Sinden, Optimo, Them Jeans and Nick Catchdubs is worth checking!

To hype up the EP release some, Cousin Cole has put together a wee minimix of Flagrant Fowl exclusives, all produced, remixed, or re-edited by Pocketknife or Cousin Cole, including some that are on the EP and ten new tracks, and he kindly sent it through to Slutty Fringe – which was jolly decent of him!

I had this mix on repeat on my stroll to work this morning, it made me forget all about the stinking hangover that decided to wake me up this morning and it seemingly does the impossible in making me actually like a Joanna Newsom track (words I never thought would come from my brain)

Check the Black Betty, Ignition and Zombies relicks – tuff


Wale – Good Girls (Cousin Cole Remix)
Spank Rock – What It Look Like (Pocketknife’s Poppinspiel the Glockenspiel Remix)

Cousin Cole – Flagrant Fowl MiniMegaMix

Go get the Tougher Than Featherz ep here – I’m certainly picking it up!

As a wee bonus here is Cousin Cole’s re-edit of Young Folks which makes it jus that lil bit more dj friendly

Kinda New

April 3, 2007

Slutty Fringe favourite Hannah Holland just sent through a hot new remix of Spektrum’s breakthrough track Kinda New. Radically different from the original or the splendid Tiefschwarz remix that was all over the clubs a few years back – it’s nasty nasty nasty and show’s what a talented young thing Miss Holland is – DJ, Producer, Promoter and Film Director

Spektrum – Kinda New (Hannah Holland Remix)

I got a sneak preview of the next installment of the Baile Funk Masters series on Man Recordings. Put together by Sany Pitbull, it’s a bit of a departure for Baile Funk in that it’s free of vocals. Indeed Funk Alemao, the track I’m posting is kinda reminscent of Timber by Coldcut and Hexstatic in the way it utilises field recordings of Sany Pitbull’s maiden voyage to Germany.

Sany Pitbull – Funk Alemao

Watch out for future EPs on Man Recordings from Sinden & The Count Of Monte Cristal and The Crookers. I’ve just heard a crazy track from the Sinden/Count EP which is gonna blow up when it drops in May – proper speed garage styles!

The legend of Clor continues to live on – after bringing you the Barringtone remixes of Infants last week I have a hot new Barringtone remix of Glasgow’s finest Shitdisco – giving the golden touch to recent single Reaktor. People need to check Shitdisco’s debut album, Kingdom of Fear when it drops in a fortnight cause it’s all sorts of splendidness!

Shitdisco – Reaktor (Barringtone Remix)

I’ve written some already about Dragonette, and there’s been plenty since, mostly about the Van She remix of forthcoming I Get Around, which to be honest I’m not really feeling.

However I did get the chance to see them proper the other week at the Metro on Oxford Street and the track that impressed me the most was Black Limousine, if only because live it sounds like they use one of the effects from those BMX bikes from the 1980s with the Space FX box on the handle bars*. Sadly the album version doesn’t appear to tap into this 80s nostalgia

Dragonette – Black Limousine

I did spot Arthur Baker at that gig, which I was quite excited, about but now I realise he was down cos he’s remixed I Get Around too, in a typically chunky indie rock way – however my favourite remix is by Australian band Midnight Juggernauts who’ve had plenty of blog hype in the past.

Dragonette – I Get Around (Midnight Juggernauts Remix)

* Anyone who can name what the hell those bikes were called will get some sort of goodness in the post from me cos it’s gonna bug me for days!
