Way Too Long

August 22, 2007

Apologies for the complete paucity of posts recently – I just noticed that only three nuggets of sillyness have surfaced on Slutty Fringe throughout August so far, which is just terrible. I thought it would be the decent thing to redress the balance somewhat with some fresh new buffhype tracks.

Italian producers 3 Is A Crowd sent me through a re edit of Crookers track Nchlinez a few weeks back which I loved and posted but completely neglected to add any information about. Thankfully they have just sent through some new productions so I can give them the word love they deserve!

They teased me with a remix of the Sinden & Count Of Monte Cristal smash Tambourzuda recently, which switches down the tempo by lacing it over the big beat break giving it a grimey hiphop lick. Finally they sent through a finished version with some added bass squiggles – tuff!

Sinden & Count Of Monte Cristal – Tambourzuda (3isacrowd final mix)

Not only that they sent through the following which exhibit the same sort of bass fuckupery that I love the Crookers for!

Mino & 3isacrowd – Mino’s Crunk (ghetto remix)

Crookers fans should keep their eyes out for forthcoming remixes of Chemical Brothers, Brodinski & Rodion. I’m lucky enough to have heard the first two and they are hothothothothot!

Ridiculously young producers Night Facilities tapped me up with his latest production which takes a snippet of Olivia Newton John and laying several ounces of nasty electrohouse sounds akin to Boys Noize or Digitalism.

Not entirely sure it’s healthy to be so prolific with conjuring up noisey electro at the tender age of 16 (All my energies were focused on art student girls in hotpants at 16) but when the output is as splendidly dirty and bouncey as this it doesn’t really matter

Night Facilities – Physical

The lovely people at Gomma sent through two mixes by label artist Baldelli which they claim to be ripped from cassette recorded back in the early 80s. I can’t vouch for the accuracy of this, but both mixes are excellent – full of italo, disco, funk rock oddities. No tracklist for these I’m afraid

Baldelli – mixtape C41 1981 A#01-eq

Baldelli – mixtape C20 1980 B#01-eq

Finally La Greve Generale hooked me up with a live recording of their recent set at the Modular Weekly which is full of the tracks that kids in Ed Banger tshirts lap up!

1. Johannes Heil – Warrior Of Light (Re-edit)
2. Snowden – Anti-Anti (Treasure Fingers Remix)
3. Lil Mama vs Blur – Lip gloss and TV (La Grève Générale blend)
4. Bobmo – To the Bobmobile
5. Nelly Furtado – Do it
6. Chromeo – Fancy footwork (Guns’n’Bombs remix)
7. Nil – Comme un printemps
8. Yo Majesty vs Federico Franchi – club Action cream (La Grève Générale blend)
9. Wing Wang Twins – Bmore Enur (Extended Sinusitis Mix)
10. Mekon ft. Roxanne Shante – Yes Yes Y’all (Duke Dumont Remix)
11. Lillica Libertine – Ultra 10
12. Klaxons – Gravity’s Rainbow (Soulwax remix)
13. Justice – D.A.N.C.E. (Justice remix)
14. Armand van Helden – NYC Beat
15. Riot in Belgium – La musique
16. Lords of Acid – I Sit on Acid (La Grève Générale’s Soulwax edit)

Dude Fuk

August 14, 2007


Fledgling Bristol producer Plimsouls got in touch recently, which was very nice as I have been enjoying the remixes by him posted on fluokids and electric zoo. I asked him to put together a mix for slutty fringe and he agreed, which was even nicer!

Enough mixes yo! The ever excellent Merok Records, previously responsible for nudging the limelight on Klaxons, Crystal Castles and The Teenagers are continuing to push the new, noisey and exciting.

Their next release is a split single that sqaurely throws the focus on Japanese singer Akiko, who I remember seeing lots on Naughty James’ photoblog a few years back. In the one corner is Comanechi, who are most certainly on a chaotic Royal Trux vibe (which is a good thing) and in the other corner is Pre who sound slightly less haphazard and more like if the girls from Blonde Redhead were sat on your face in a crack / MDMA orgy apparently….

There are some rather splendid remixes of Comanechi to accompany this release from Tapedeck, Passions, Gentlemen Drivers and DJ Scotch Egg

Comanechi – Death Of You (Tapedeck Remix)

Comanechi – Death Of You (Passions Splatterhouse Remix)

Pre order the single from the shiney new Rough Trade East shop here

Moving on from Merok, using a rather shoddy segue I bring you a Crystal Castles track which is soon to be found nestling on a shockingly limited bright green neon seven inch slab of vinyl jostling for attention with Hearts Revolution, who are fond of sending out big boxes of sweets.

Crystal Castles – XxzxcZx Me

You can purchase this release here (worth it for the Acid Girls remix of Hearts Revolution)

That’s it, I’m off to listen to the Supermayer lp and curse myself for wiping all 30 gigs of music off my ipod.

Totally Frank

August 2, 2007

People probably don’t remember Totally Frank, that silly sunday morning programme on T4 about four girls who formed a band called Frank which was supposed to act as a springboard for a proper musical career. I do because I DJed at their house party up in Islington a few years back.

Anyway, Frank are no more (though one of them is on DirtyDirty Dancing all the time) which is lucky for fey bequiffed solo artist Frank Musik who seems to be getting lots of hype right now (having the same management as Simian Mobile Disco may have something to do with it)

Frank Musik sounds like a more polished version of The Glamour Soundsystem and is likely to be listed alongside Nic Nell and Sportsday Megaphone in a Guardian article written by Alex Petridish at some point in the near future – in which he will proclaim them the natural male musical reaction to the chart behemoth that is wee Kate Nash. Perhaps

Frank Musik – Three Little Words

Frank Musik – Made Her Smile

The rather splendid Art Goes Pop imprint from out of Leeds is releasing the new album from Mancunian upstarts Kill The Young next month and a single ‘We Are The Birds and Bees’ is being released a week on Monday to whet appetites replete with a shockingly good good South Central remix – these lot are rapidly becoming one of my favourite producers, I even purchased a Maccabees white label the other week cos it had a south central remix on it.

I’ve read several lazy comparisons between South Central and Justeece which I’m not going to countenance but check the drop three and a bit minutes in!

Kill The Young – We Are The Birds and Bees (South Central Extended Remix)

Switching the noise up some and generally looking in disgust at the music I have just posted is Brighton producer L-Vis 1990 who runs the splendid So Loud clubnight and counts Palmsout and Drop The Lime as keen fans of his tracks.

The L-Vis 1990 remix of Miura by Metro Area was featured by Palmsout a few weeks back and it is fookin amazin! Growling bass and cutup Yo Majesty vocals make for goodness with my ears!

Metro Area – Miura ( L-Vis 1990’s Mum’s Gone To Iceland Remix)

He kindly hit me up with the above plus a baltimore remix of Playing With Knives and his own production Change The Game which kinda reminds me of Bobmo

Bizzare Inc – Playing With Tom (L-Vis 1990’s Mom’s Gone To Baltimore Remix)

L-Vis 1990 – Change The Game

At the moment I have so much music to listen to I forget who has sent me what when (apologies to anyone who has sent me stuff that I have either not replied to you about or forgotten to feature)

So I was kinda pleased when I blindly opened a folder on my desktop named OOFT loaded up the mp3s and some nice midtempo chugging electrodisco remixes of Glaswegian types Cronk Family Enterprises by Ooft Music started filing the room.

Deportivo Street Team – A Quiet Rebellion (Ooft Music Remix)

Check the Ooft Blog too yo!

Further investigation of the music on my desktop discovered tracks by Deportivo Street Team including a wee gem of a track in Brain Scran – check it!

Deportivo Street Team – Brain Scran

Direct your eyes towards the Five20East online store for more of the same yo!
