Angie Stone x Gatto Viola x Doc Daneeka

You won’t have to search too hard to find the hype surrounding this one. Angie Stone’s soulful, powerful, piece ‘Wish I didn’t miss you‘ is set as the foundation. Cut incredibly by Gatto Viola to it’s most playful lyrics and diva moans, and slightly stripped of it’s emotional depth (which I promise not to complain about!) Doc Daneeka transforms the tune once more, giving the drums a rolling funky-like encasement. The end result is a powerful one.

With that being said, there has been a bit of confusion over this tune’s origin. While making it’s rounds in 2009, and being awarded “remix/mashup of the year” on Gilles Peterson’s worldwide winners show, it has become widely known to most as the ‘Angie Stone Doc Daneeka edit’. As I stated earlier, the tune was cut by Gatto Viola, with additional drum editing done by Doc Daneeka. Doc Daneeka wants to neutralize any misconceptions about this track. So, I’m here to give credit where credits due. Here’s the track properly labeled. No shade. Enjoy this exclusive club curb stomp, y’all!

The Young Punx return.

Londoners Young Punx are back with their second studio album, which was co-produced by Phonat from Italy (now also based in London).

Their press kit describes the trio as “musical over-achievers” and there’s definitely some truth to this. The album “Mashpop and Punkstep” is – as the title suggests – all over the place. There’s a lot of pop in there, there’s D’n’B too. There are guitar riffs and Disco vibes. Basically, it’s just full of surprises and a lot of fun. This is an eclectic dance album, in which the Young Punx have stuffed all sorts of styles. Still, they apparently believe in one thing: “Fashions come and fashions go but Disco will never die”  (“Never Die Part 1″).

Stand out tracks are the Single “Ready For The Fight” and “SugarCandySuperNova”, both available to stream below.

Unfortunately those tracks are not free to blog but here are some other free goodies:

The Young Punx – SugarCandySuperNova (Acid Girls Remix)

There are also some great remixes of “Ready For The Fight” available on SoundCloud.

Go buy the album on Beatport. And stay in touch with the Young Punx via Facebook.

Fresh out the SXSW loony-bin, I’m filled to the brim with potential posts and inspiration. Never before has there been such a fusion of forces in one place, and I’m humbled to have been witness to all of it. A major conjoining force this week was San Francisco’s Cumbia party Tormenta Tropical, hosted by Disco Shawn and Oro11. They’re record label Bersa Discos has been recent home to digital interpretations of Cumbia, its artists reaching from Los Angeles to Buenos Aires. Linking sounds and artists must be their specialty, as an absolutely legendary line-up of artists ranging from Toy Selectah to Kingdom came through their showcase here at SXSW.

After the success of Tormenta Tropical and SXSW, it’s clear that the sounds of Cumbia are becoming embraced by other parts of the underground dance music world, and beginning last January Disco Shawn and a few other cohorts including SF-based Wireblock/Numbers artist Ghosts On Tape, Rollie Fingers, and Lazer Sword’s Low Limit have begun a monthly UK Funky/House party entitled Icee Hot. Already playing host to Martin Kemp, this month they have Shortstuff visiting, each of them producers just beginning to make strong impressions on the scene. Promoting his appearance is a mix of white hot tunes that are about as of the moment as you can get with these sounds. If you’re in SF this weekend be sure to make it out to this, it is Shortstuff’s first time the states, and a truly unprecedented visit for these artists.



01. Dizzee Rascal “Brand New Day” (XL)
02. Terror Danjah “Air Bubble (Geiom RMX)” (Butterz)
03. Guido “Mad Sax” (white)
04. Machinedrum “SXLND” (white)
05. Roska “Squark” (Rinse)
06. Jam City “Let Me Bang RMX” (white)
07. Lemonade “Lifted (Shortstuff RMX)” (True Panther)
08. Egyptrixx “The Only Way Up (Ikonika RMX)” (Night Slugs)
09. Shortstuff “Fig Rolls” (Ramp)
10. DJ Dom “UCSM” (white)
11. SBTRKT “Sleep in Tokyo” (white)
12. West Norwood Cassette Library “What It Is” (white)

Introducing MoonRunners

They’re a producer and songwriter, a graphic designer and photographer, a pianist and DJ and a videographer.

The video for MoonRunners’ (vs Daft Punk) ‘Feels Like Magic’ only cost them around £55 to make, and given the budget, one might expect an amateurish showing. However, you’ve got four guys who know their craft and have been working with the likes of Kanye West, Mr Hudson, and Lilly Allen. Do they impress?

So I’ve been signed up for regular updates from Boomkat (the awesome Manchester-based record distributor that specializes in electronica, reggae, and various other breeds of contemporary art/party music) for about a year now, and every week they come through with a genre-centric 14-tracks package, a compilation of the best and brightest representing one genre, sub-genre, musical discipline, or even one significant musician.  The series has included packages from individual geniuses like Vladislav Delay, Rustie, and Roska, as well as comprehensive anthologies of long-buried rave genres like early 90s hardcore jungle. (Sorry junglists!)

This week, they’ve decided to showcase the sounds of urban Scandinavia’s best-kept secret, an intriguing sub-genre known simply as Skweee! It’s kind of like IDM, except it doesn’t suck.  It’s got the complicated, cerebral rhythms and sparkling lead synthesizers of IDM, but with glitch-hop coherence and consistent attention to the low-end presence.  Alot of the stuff in this package brings an interesting throwback lo-fi approach, sounding like it was dubbed to tape and re-recorded through giant guitar amps.  Perfect for bedroom listeners and ketamine-fiend warehouse ravers.

Here in Boston, the sound has started to pick up alongside wonky styles, glitch-hop, dubstep, and other variations of quirky bass music and now we’ve even got an on-topic monthly party night, aptly titled Lost in Bass, with residents Dsub, Professor Pious, and Stickem.  You can check out the associate blog at the link above, which sports event listings, live mixes from the residents (and their favorite artists), along with other goodies.

Here’s a mix from our man Dsub, originally released by the Boston-centric blog On a Friday, recorded live at one of Boston’s best party nights, Bassic, a monthly dubstep/future-bass residency that has brought in the likes of Appleblim, Starkey, Caspa, The Bug + Warrior Queen, Headhunter, Untold, Martyn, and more!   Just so you’re aware that Boston doesn’t sucks as much as they say it does.

This mix is fucking ba-na-nas.  It really clicks in at around 40 minutes, big ups to DSub and Jason Bergman over at On a Friday.  Download it here. Or stream it below.

Dsub Bassic Mix

No tracklist right now, being that it’s recorded live, we were all hella drunk, and I don’t think anybody bothered to write down what got played and when.  But you can expect a carefully assembled selection of glitch-hop, skwee, dubstep, and half-step fidget jams for your aural pleasure.  Enjoy.
