Young L – Young L-E-N

Keeping with my NYE promise of a more accurate blog-reflection of my spectrum of musical taste, I share with you something joyously new from the troubled waters of Rap-land. Out to Noz at Cocaine Bluntz for the video for this, I absolutely had to have the keepable version. This “martian-slap” from Northern California’s Young L of The Pack gives his former colleague Lil’ B a run for his blog-rap money with some delightfully-demented production.  Less daring a rapper, Young L should, if things are breezy between these two, IM some beats over and let Lil’B do the talking.

NGUZUNGUZU – Moments In Love Mixtape

Sometimes there is no better way to look forward than to go back. Such is the case for Los Angeles-based Nguzunguzu‘s latest mixtape, “Moments In Love,” giving us this lens through the Art of Noise classic. Moving through Miami Bass, Cumbia, Baltimore Club, and Dubstep, Nguzunguzu give us a look into influences of their own while giving us a nice little metaphor for the state of underground club music. And if there is a touchstone for what’s innovative about these styles, Nguzunguzu are your synthesizing source.

High Rankin ‘Occupation: Pimp and Gambler’

2009 saw big things for Will Rankin; a signing to the Cheap Thrills imprint, and a powerful first release, ‘No Money For Guns’. We knew the man wasn’t monkeying around. ‘The Airloom’ and its haunting video, got inside our heads, as well as his relentless Glade Festival mix and fine remixes for the likes of The Count & Sinden, Kevin Rudolf and Skunk Anansie. Beyond music, Mr Rankin’s harsh and humorous persona had us spitting out our food and drink on more than one occasion via his tweets and blog. Undoubtedly, good entertainment at either destination.

The next step in the High Rankin story takes the form of an EP entitled: ‘Occupation: Pimp and Gambler’, out now exclusively on Beatport and due for general release via Cheap Thrills, 15th February. Eagerly anticipated, it’s everything you’d expect from High Rankin. He’s resurrecting his label, ‘Suicide Dub’ in the next few months and “looking to sign some hot shit.” Get on that here. His latest mixes will melt your brain, especially February’s ‘Fury Rank’. Nothing quite gets as brash as this. Strap yourselves in and enjoy the ride.

Australian Beauty


Pic by El Fotopakismo (used under a CC license)

Despite my current obsession with dance and pop music from Australia, I never find the time to post all the good stuff that comes through from the big island down under. I just can’t keep up.

Still, I don’t want you guys to miss out on these tunes (if you haven’t leeched them from other blogs yet), so I’m doing a round-up of the last couple of weeks:

Our first one here comes courtesy of Beaufort who are about to release a movie called “Tiger”, which – apparently – is about two models in Tokyo.


Beaufort – Kraken

Speaking of Tokyo: according to Polygon Palace they built a time machine in the capital of Japan. Crazy. Here are two equally awesome remixes of “Tokyo Getaway” by producer of the moment Cassian (also from Australia) and my fellow Swissies Cryptonites.


Polygon Palace – Tokyo Getaway (Cassian Remix)


Polygon Palace – Tokyo Getaway (Cryptonites Remix)

Please also listen to the original song, which is a bit more mellow but should keep the kids of Australia jumping in hot summer nights.


Polygon Palace – Tokyo Getaway

Moving on to the next moment, this track by Get Stellar is an indie pop gem.


Get Stellar – The Moment (Extended Edit)

But the remixes by GLOVES and Def Starr are truly beautiful with a wonderful (signature) bassline (the former) and great synths (the latter).


Get Stellar – The Moment (GLOVES Remix)


Get Stellar – The Moment (Def Starr Remix)

I’ll end this round-up with the uberhit right now (at least on my soundsystem):


Dragonette – Pick Up The Phone (Michael Van She Remix)

Dragonette – of course – are not from Australia. But Michael of Van She (aka Arithmatix)  is, so this remix totally fits in this post.

Go show all of these artists your love on Myspace!

DJ King Pop – Curated 1: Confetti System

Criminally overdue, I offer you a near-perfect Friday night pre-funk mix from the brilliant selektah DJ King Pop out of New York City. This is the first in a series of non-dj curated mixes from DJ King Pop, this one from art collective Confetti System. As described on their website, Confetti System is:

“Nicholas Andersen and Julie Ho, a duo working as artists, stylists, and designers. Their friendship, love of communal celebration, and craft making has brought them together to create a new system.The system is a collection of objects born from simple materials. Tissue paper, cardboard, and silk are transformed into interactive objects that create a point of focus where memories can be made and a spontaneous collaboration between themselves and the viewer is sparked. CONFETTI SYSTEM occupies the space that exists between the ephemeral and the permanent and aims to evoke a sense of nostalgia and lighthearted fun.”

Adeptly working through Hip-Hop’s bounce and Dubstep’s growl at the outset, King Pop finishes with a seamless transition to today most compelling iterations of House music in the underground scene. Clocking in at just under 25 minutes, the pace and scope of this mix is artfully swift and digestible. Look to a particularly transportive transition from Louisiana Ca$h to Basement Jaxx’s unequivocal “Scars”. Do enjoy.
