Justin Faust remixes Cyndi Seui

Just when I thought I could let go of 2008 Cyndi Seui sent me Justin Faust‘s remix of “Breakin Into Bitz”. Bavarian synth magician meets Thai pop wonder. What else can we expect from this mixture than an amazing, sugary tune to warm our hearts and make us dance into twothousandfrigginine?

Cyndi Seui – Breakin Into Bitz (Justin Faust Remix)

Happy New Year everyone!

Discoballistic plays with mirror balls

Yet another dance music project from Belgium is getting ready to destroy dancefloors across the globe. This time it is Discoballistic, a mysterious phenomenon inspired by “neon lights of synth trance and laser guns”. Their Myspace says they’re from Australia, but don’t let that fool you. I’m sure it’s the country of Goose and Soulwax that has given rise to Discoballistic.

As far as I can tell, they are really into mirror balls. Mirror balls galore, multi mirror balls! Download their original track of the same name here:

Discoballistic – Multi Mirror Ball

Discoballistic have also been busy remixing other artists’ work. I really, really like their touch on “NASA” by Futurecop!

Futurecop! – NASA (Discoballistic Remix)

Also, they have given “Bikini Crazy” by beach-pop outfit Sunset Cruisin a nice spin. Go get Sunset Cruisin’s EP here.

Sunset Cruisin – Bikini Crazy (Discoballistic Remix)

To wrap this post up, I give you a remix, for which Discoballistic have given their signature sound of chopped vocals to “Deep In The Forest” by Keenhouse, whose remixes have been featured on this blog before.

New Reign – Hard House Banton


coy. via dude's myspace.

Before 2009 comes blistering into view, one last heads up is in order. If you’re like me and can’t seem to ride the UK wave fast enough, you get drowned. So while my inbox follows suit and the system of discernment becomes less efficient, artists like Hard House Banton float effortlessly to the top of the heap. Representing yet another new sound and not yet featured here on Trash, but hovering just under familiar wavelengths (i.e. Garage/2-Step) is UK Funky. More House than Garage, UK Funky has shown its face on the Crazy Cousinz masterpiece “Do You Mind” and continues to find homes on sets from Bok Bok, L-Vis 1990, and fellow bloggers the Curb Crawlers. So when you’re going to your playlist on Wednesday night, don’t think twice about using a set opener like “Reign.” The word “epic,” also comes to mind. See you in another day, of another rotation, on earth.

Favorite Holiday Drink and Song

‘What a curious feeling!’ said Alice; ‘I must be shutting up like a telescope.’
- Alice in Wonderland

The holiday season has been in full tilt the past month and New Years is right around the bend; it’s the perfect time to celebrate the end of another year and the start of a new. We’ve compiled a list of our favorite holiday drink and song, and some of our favorite artists have shared theirs as well! (a few interesting drink concoctions you’re going to want to try) Wherever you may be as 2009 chimes in, HAPPY NEW YEAR TO ALL!!!!!!

Audio Pimpstress – Rave Juice – because it gives me that “Electric Feel”
BisouK – Veuve Cliquot, bc my bday is also NYE. On other nights, Johnny Walker Blue

Cryptonites deliver a little mix for Christmas

Cryptonites from Switzerland sent over a little mix for Christmas. It’s very diverse with some Evil Nine, some Fatboy Slim, some Cool Kids, some disco and some house. Just like their set at Caravan Disco last Friday, very exciting! You gotta listen to the mix yourself to figure out the tracklist.
One of the boys used to be a house music DJ. He went by the name of… nah, I won’t tell you. I think he wants to get rid of that part of his past. :-)
