Discotexas releases Forbidden Cuts!

Here’s a release that I’ve been waiting for (or rather: longing for) for quite some time: Lisbon-based collective and label Discotexas are releasing their “Forbidden Cuts” today. The EP features three tracks by Moullinex, Xinobi and Rockets. You should recall the latter from a post on these pages.

I can only speculate about the origins of the title but this is dangerously addictive stuff from a wonderful crew that is now making their way from the blogs to some of the coolest labels in dance music: While Moullinex is getting his full-length ready for Gomma, Xinobi’s “Day Off” is finally seeing a proper release on Work It Baby soon and Rockets debut 12″ is going to be released by Alavi’s RoXour!


Moullinex – Lover In Me


Xinobi – Valsa in NJ


Rockets – Running To You

It’s their love for details, the warmth in their tracks, awesome production, and – of course – their ability to make people dance that makes me want to proclaim a new genre right now. No more French touch, this is Portuguese house!

Go to Discotexas’ website to purchase “Forbidden Cuts” and give these guys some love on their myspace sites!

Late of the Pier – Fantasy Black Channel Album Debut & US Tour Dates

Late of the Pier first caught my attention as remixers, producing tunes infused with electro, rock, and pop elements with a dark edged tinge. They are now releasing “Fantasy Black Channel“, their debut album. The full length release gives you a better sense of who LOTP are as a band. “Fantasy Black Channel” pushes stylistic boundaries, contains infectious hooks, and the wide scope of their soundscape gives each track its own sound, dishing out a little bit of something for everyone.


Late of the Pier – Space and The Woods – Patrick Plastix Remix


Late of the Pier – Bathroom Gurgle – Artwork Remix

The fan’s and critics are all over it, and in agreement, LOTP is a “hot buzz band“, to keep on your radar. Over the past year, the Nottingham four some of comprised of Sam Eastgate (vocals/guitar), Sam Potter, (synths/samplers), Ross Dawson (drums/percussion) and Andrew Faley (bass), have been receiving massive acclaim and extensively touring Europe. They make their highly anticipated US debut this March and April, hitting SXSW, WMC, and all points in between.

‘Brilliant’ -Rolling Stone
‘This band are the future’ – NME
‘Grand retro-futurism’ –Pitchfork
‘Strange & Exciting’ -Blender
‘A wild pastiche of pogo-friendly pop music…Late of the Pier isn’t so much late as right on time.’– Interview
‘The most thrillingly imaginative album of the year’ -The Fly

Freak You remixes we are ENFANT TERRIBLE

Freak You who has been featured on this blog recently sent over his latest work. Franck has given his touch to “Eagles Don’t Sparkl” by fellow frenchmen we are ENFANT TERRIBLE. This trio hails from Paris and is still unsigned. That might change pretty soon though as weEF are playing Club NME both in London and Paris in February.

While the original is a stomping electronic rock song with spooky vocals, the remix is haunting like New Order in their most melancholic moments. Freak You makes the song faster and adds a more driving beat. Nice work, though not for the light at heart.
