After 14 hours of sleep and insane amounts of black Chai, I feel way better today. Been checking my inbox for new stuff to drop tonight when I found a special gift from Paris-based label Ekler’o’Shok Records: Data’s upcoming Electric Fever EP which will be released on Monday, December 7th, featuring a bunch of remixes.
In my opinion, the original mix is the best track on the EP. It’s a classic retro-disco track that Kavinsky himself couldn’t have done better, featuring amazing sweepy lead synths over analogue bass samples. The whole track sounds as if it was taken straight from the Scarface soundtrack…
It’s friday night and I’m feeling a bit under the weather today (swine flu?), so I decided to stay at home to collect my strength for DJing tomorrow. For all of you who feel better at the moment, here’s something to bang your heads to tonight: Valerna‘s latest remix is a massive attack on your eardrums, watch out kiddos!
Hiya kiddos, look what Dim Mak Records just sent over to me: A full, clean copy of Warp 1977 featuring Steve Aoki and Boberman (= Bob Rifo) – no cheap set rip or live recording. One, two, three, mothafuckaaaaa.

Here’s what Dim Mak Records have to say:
I want to apologize for any miscommunication regarding â€œWarp 1977â€. This track if for STREAMING only. Please do not re-host this track for download.”
All of you who are somehow into DJing will particularly appreciate this early Christmas gift The Japanese Popstars sent over earlier today: If you’ve always dreamed of opening a set with Jingle Bells, just to drop a massive, distorted electro madness on the crowd afterwards, this one should be your weapon of choice:
Adam Freeland has always been one of my favorite producers, those of you who have been following my blog for some time will know that. I admire him not only for being one of the most creative musicians in the electro scene at the moment but also for showing his colours, having supported Obama and directly adressing our society’s stupidity in his music video to We Want Your Soul.
2009 saw the release of his latest studio album, Cope, one of the best albums so far this year, featuring a broad variety of different sounds. Last week I received a promo copy that took this masterpiece to an even higher level: Cope Remixed is a genre-crossing collection of remixes, ranging from Drum & Bass (TC), Techno (Gui Boratto) to Electro, including artists such as Grum, Shadow Dancer and Siriusmo. Speaking of which, Marine Parade Records have decided to give away Siriusmo’s remix of Rock On, here you are, kiddos:
The Bloody Beetroots are unleashing a beastly gift just in time for the holidays! Christmas Vendetta…Spares Of Romborama is out DEC. 8, 2009! The EP is a mix of outtakes from the group’s debut album Romborama. Feast your eyes on the video teaser which includes a preview of the new Warp mix, a killer mashup of Warp 1.9 with Warp 7.7!
You know its going to make it on your Christmas wishlist this year…
