Like Maximo Park Minus The Bowler Hat

January 26, 2008


Apologies for the dearth of ear candy over the last few days, the Slutty Fringe editorial has been requested to help Her Majesty dole out some cold hard justice but a slight return to proceedings is presented to you now in the form of some bootlegged remixes.

Gothic tinged electro act Black Ghosts have an album out this year but to whet the collective appetite they releasing a rather splendid mixtape in March called The Black Ghosts Mixtape (bet they were up all night thinking of that one) with a tracklist that includes Boy 8 Bit, Rustie, Frankmusik, Siriusmo, Proper Villains and Fil Ok and a smattering of excellent remixes from the likes of Switch, Fake Blood and The Replicants and of course plenty Black Ghost remix/productions.

Here is a blend they did just now, laying Simon Lord’s vocals over the classic cosmic dust disco of Lindstrom

Black Ghosts  – Something New (Galactic Version) / ysi

South East London ligger Mac 3000 spared some time from playing at other peoples parties to send through some guaranteed WMDs from his hard drive which could be described as blends with a definite degree of cheek

Mac 3000 – Get Ready To Shake It / ysi

Mac 3000 –  Dizzee Oizo / ysi

Mac 3000 – Diesel Dizzee / ysi

Back in the colder part of November Scottish producer The Revenge sent through a bubbly remix of the Bat For Lashes track Prescilla which has been slowly attaching itself to a current list of favourite things (It was included on a Christmas compilation that was sent to the lucky few) It really should have been released to the hypem huggers before now!
This is despite the lack of impression Natasha Khan and her cadre of harp playing strumpets made at Koko when the Slutty Fringe saw them.

Bat For Lashes – Prescilla (The Revenge Rework) / ysi

The Mowgli remix of  Chemical Brothers has probably been all over the internet but if you have been perfecting your ostrich impression this past week then get some of this because it is several degrees of splendidness

Chemical Brothers – Do It Again (Mowgli Boot It Again Remix) / ysi

Finally, should you be craving for a mix with something a bit different it would be wise to get on the Durrrrrrr podcast as Todd The Hits That Peeps Forgot Hart from the onpoint 24365 Dalston Oxfam Shop blog has just compiled the latest installment and it is rather excellent.  Go seeek>>>>
