Guess who’s back, back again – starting a blog post by quoting a famous white rapper is not exactly what I had in mind, but after spending the last two weeks working with mentally challenged people on a vacation camp, having access to only an agonizingly slow internet connection, I’m finally back to feed the starving masses some music (I admit, I’ve always loved to think of myself as some kind of benefactor, dispensing fresh tunes to needy souls). I sincerely apologize to you, my dearest readers, for any emotional damage caused by staring at Erika Jayne’s picture on the front page of my blog for almost two weeks.
Enough brownnosing, here are some big beats to dance to tonight: Canadian Disco Demons resident John Roman has rolled out a new set of serious DJ weapons, used by the likes of Congorock, Brodinksi, LA Riots and Designer Drugs to destroy dancefloors all over the world. In March 2009, I wrote “I’ve never heard of Canadian producer John RomanÂ before, but judging from this banger he’s gonna be huge soon.” – now it seems as if I’ve been right (narcissistic me!). Here’s one of his latest remixes, a stomping rework of Boys Noize and Erol Alkan’s Lemonade, including sick build-ups and break-downs, as well as his take on The Bloody Beetroots’ Cornelius – the remix that drew my attention to this genius in the first place. JOHN ROMAN – remember the name, you’ll be screaming it later…[audio:http://www.discodemons.net/wp-content/uploads/sites/43/2010/05/Lemonade%20(John%20Roman%20Remix).mp3|titles=Lemonade (John Roman Remix)]
