Nothing Like The Ringtone

December 13, 2007

Having had a riotous time at the Santogold gig last Thursday it was fully my intention to write a glowing review of what was without doubt one of the best gigs of this year for me. However, an over indulgence in all sorts of alcohol at the nearby afterparty left me in dire straits for the remainder of the weekend (Manlike me is getting old these days and other such excuses)

For the record, Mapei killed it, looking rather hothothot in a blue spandex catsuit, and spitting rhymes over some classic hiphop samples at one point and doing some rather natty freestyling about 3 girls she pulled onto stage. Santogold was most impressive too with Creator obviously getting the heaviest cheer, with the suprise appearance of Naeem from Spank Ro adding to the allround special feeling – Oh if Mapei is reading this then I apologise for trying to tealeaf your bowler hat several times over….

So anyway, at some point before this year carps it there’s going to be a 2007 retrospective listing the slutty fringe favourite tracks, albums, producers, remixes, haircuts etc but until that point here are some mixes that have found their way to me.

Mr Elastik is more commonly known to the HypeMachine Huggers as purveyor of wonkyfidget The Bulgarian. His track Justice caused a minor degreee of bewilderment earlier this year when edbAnger freaks mistook for some slipped under the radar Justeeece action.

Fools, anyway Mr Elastik has just finished a Christmas Mix which thankfully isn’t seasonally tasted, instead it contains lots of nice wonky techno/house music and cheeky re/edits – bonus props for the inclusion of Boy 8 Bit’s Burial refix cos it rubs the Burial bores up a treat!

One name to check in 2008 is definitely Riva Starr, already getting hype for releases on Dirty Bird and Front Room, is a past guest at Get Rude (c’mon y’all know if the Zombie Disco Squad be on them then you gots to follow suit) and soon to be sharing space on the Armand Van Helden remix train with Switch.

Fully embracing the self promotion ethos Riva Starr done the nice thing and sent through a recently recorded live set for the ears of Slutty Fringe readers (and I’m sure plenty of other blogs) which is heavy heavy heavy
