End Of Year Wig Out!



Sick of chasing wild geese every year come new year's night, me myself and James Barrie have taken matters into our own hands.

We have a place you can get to easy (if you live in Barcelona, of course), bar prices, an immense soundsystem! and cheap-ass tickets for anyone organised enough to cop them beforehand.

You'd better go to Rift in Plaça Angels if you want a piece of the action!

Bon Any a tothom!

The Best Dancefloor Songs of 2009 (Je Crois)


Yes. This is to shine a little light on some of the tracks that made my 2009 such a delightful 365 days. I would like to admit to all pedants that in all likelihood, these tracks were not released this year, but their effect and presence in discoteques, bedrooms, afters and walkmans this year has been undeniable. You can download my assemblage of these tracks following the link at the bottom of the post.

  1. Delorean: 'Big Dipper'

This is an honest-to-goodness collage of the finer points of electronic music and a great deal of musical can-do, polished by a pop production that makes this record fit into almost any circumstance. I like to imagine the boys surfing around the bay of Biscay with small hats on like a latter-day version of the Banana Bunch when this comes on the player.

  1. Crystal Fighters: 'Xtatic Truth' (Renaissance Man Remix)

Strangely the Basques get another look in here. The infectious loop of the much-whooped txalaparta is spun around hypnotically for an eternity by the Renaissance Man duo before the Spanlish vocal comes in, which at once makes one feel at one with everyone whilst urging us to get by as individuals. It's quite Thatcherite but has nevertheless struck a chord with me.

  1. Radioclit: 'Divine Gosa' (Switch Remix)

This record is good for for reasons than even I care to think about. It is at once frantic and charged but retains an organic house backdrop. The rearrangements of Switch cannot be overlooked, proving that if you have a boss name like he does, it is impossible to tire of hearing it before drops.

  1. Idiotproof: 'Gorilla'

Continuing the theme of this fidget mission that seems to be the hot sound of the time, for the minute anyway, a 12” dancefloor fertilizer-based explosive on the hard-not-to-dig Made To Play label. I could have picked any tune from that stable for inclusion in the Top Ten but this one slides in as it is particularly effervescent.



  1. L-Vis 1990: 'Mr Wobble'

This man has control of everything and this EP was a joy to discover. Rarely does a record separate itself so easily from all the other latest releases in the record shop, but I was gobsmacked by this collection of barnstorming experiments in bass and time.



  1. Top Billin: 'In The Ass'

Not many people will remember the Outhere Brothers' first single from which this x-rated Baltimore crossover joint got its hook. Top Billin, however, may yet achieve a level of success of the lasting kind, as he put out gems like this on his way to remix for bigger and brighter acts than any Finn has before.



  1. Jean Nipon: 'Lost In Music'

This thing is complete anarchy. A twat to mix with, as it takes ideas of 16 bars and takes the piss out of them incessantly, the incomprehensible vocal stabs and Chicago-hell sour bass drop makes it worth it every time.



  1. Jayou: 'Zub'

This is an illustration of the ridiculous potential of dubstep. Starting as a sped up version of nineties French house, it releases into a sick bass onslaught that wouldn't be out of place at a Norweigan church-burning black metal orgy.

  1. Unknown: 'Cunt Trax 1' (Instrumental)

I have to admire this record on the principle of two aspects. Every track involves some cockney gangster film rip wittering on at someone about being a cunt, which is either self-referentially brilliant or predictably daft. Either way, I prefer without. This is both minimally ambient and an industrial-strength dub-step bomb that can only be fully appreciated by a crowd of drunk and high Sònar backpackers. Or the Scots.

  1. Limonious 'Swedish Pommak'

A complete screwball to round off the pack. When you thought you knew where everything was headed, the Scandanavians, who have been laying in the cut for a minute scheming on something dastardly, come out with a sweet serving of cult beats, at a tempo no-one was thinking about, rocking rhythms that only five people are capable of inventing and about 40 more are interested in, for now. But there's some milage in this mayhem.

8 Bit Christmas Special




First of all, why call it a Christmas special and then do nothing Christmassy during the program?  Is the idea of 8-bit any more attractive over the festive season?  That aside, let me fill you in with what you probably missed at BeCool tother night.

There were three acts that we caught.  There were more on the bill but we either missed them, didn't notice them or they were wack.  And I believe that in general, it's better to say nothing than to say something negative, especially in this season of good will and mince pies.

The first was Drop 1410 who had a tremendous selection of energetic tunes which were well programmed and not too self involved, keeping us engaged for the duration despite the lack of vocals, etc.  He popped up on occasion to introduce this or that, and I was slightly disppointed to see that he was a human and not a dalek or C3P0.  He also dropped a really amusing take on early ninties eurotrance.



We were there to see Meneo, and I suppose that they were the main attraction for the most of the souls that made it up there on a school night, not for me though as I was steady on holiday by then.  There set was pretty short, it must be said, as this early gig had had its share of technical glitches, but was intense as ever, and they dropped some new material including one track that seemed to be called 'Tiger Woods Is Gay'.  Well I never.  They also done a couple of covers, which I hadn't heard before, check the video below for to see whether you would have dug.  Most people did.  Also most people were disappointed not to see the band members' members during the performance.  What can I say.  It was cold and they might not have done their profiles any favours.



The act that put the night on is a Catalan/Japanese crossbreed called Pepino.  They were a kind of 8 bit Pizzicato Five, she was more reserved and nicer to listen to, he was too wacky and is vocals did nothing for the tracks at all.  Did I say I was going to be nice?  My bad.  Their synchronised dance moves were awesome though.  And they had a bit of a penya down there that knew the tracks off by heart and whatnot.



Overall, the night was enjoyable, from the point of view of a showcase and not a night of dancing.  You had to be a real 8 bit anorak to pay attention to everything, and Meneo were easily the slickest and most entertaining 30 minutes.

Whatever Happened To The Noughties? The Best Mixtapes Of The Decade

I'm going to put my top ten albums of the decade on my myspace because here it seemed more appropriate to write about something a bit different.  Something overlooked by our contemporaries at the Observer, but all too relevant to electronic drug people whose A.D.D. makes the space between tracks seem like a bleak eternity, here is my list of the best ten mixtapes of the decade.  Si señor.

10.  Goon & Koyote: Diamond Grills



Apart from or because of the loud and intrusive shouts from DJ Nasty, this is an incredibly slick mixtape full of all the essentials for number of repeat listens, including a 16 bar ghetto reworking of 'Good Life' by Inner City and a dope exclusive verse from Teki Latex.  This tape represents the French take on booty, which seems to have been massive amongst our Gallic cousins.

Ibiza Moment:  DJ Koyote: 'Playin With Witney'

9.  Toddla T: Ghettoblaster




If this is how it started, T Willy has had it down from day un.  This epic collection brought old favourites to our attention, scoured the ragga and bass scene for fresh gems, pushing all four versions of Toddla's first single, 'Do U Know'.

Ibiza Moment:  Tiger Style: 'Tiger Style'

8.  Aaron LaCrate & Low Budget: BMore Gutter Music



If ever a sound has been so easy to define it is B(alti)more Club.  This tape is as good as it got.  All the bangers you need to know about are contained within, with very few of the uninspired remixes that seems to have come to define this genre.

Ibiza Moment: Baltimore Club: 'Pork Chops'

7.  Metro Area: Fabric 43



Their sound may be modest and reserved, but don't equivocate yourself: Metro Area are a production juggernaut.  This Fabric mix came out about 4 years too late, but its classic content really negates time and fashions.  It is also the only mix (possibly ever) with a humourous spoken intro that endears the artist to the listener.

Ibiza Moment: Devo: 'Freedom Of Choice'

6.  DJ2D2: A Little Bass!



This is the gem of a selection of fine mixtapes from Barcelona's David Perez.  Effortlessly floating between genres, it is so up on the new shit that even now it sounds futuristic.  Why this lad doesn't have a residency in one of the city's larger dancing spaces I do not know.

Skream & Diplo 'Blipstream'

5.  Vitalic: Live At Fuse 2002



This is the only live mix in the selection but I could not possibly discount it.  Released bang in the middle of the electroclash years (I still shudder when I hear that term...), this hour of champagne techno sums up everything that is right about that sound.

Ibiza Moment: Vitalic: 'Newman'

4.  Modeselektor: Boogybites Vol. 03



As far as progression goes, this for me is an amazing collection of forward-thinking music from the last few years.  The mixing is eccentrically unpredictable, the order curious and the mood of each piece almost worlds apart from its predecessor, but these Germans with strange faces make it all fit.

Ibiza Moment: Holden: 'Idiot'

3.  Disco D: Funk Flava 2005



This is the saddest entry of all.  When David Shayman commited suicide, I read and watched quite a lot of the coverage about the why, and what emerged was that he was an incredibly hard-working character who wasn't getting the success that he needed, and this may have contributed to his depression.  This baffles me.  I saw both Disco D and Diplo at Sònar a year apart.  Where Diplo was blending some throwaway hits, Disco D played a live set on his MPC, influenced by his recent trip to Brazil.  Where Diplo came out with 'Piracy Funds Terrorism', Disco D dropped Funk Flava 2005, an engaging frenzy of Miami Bass, Baile Funk and Ragga.  Who's the better artist?  (No offence meant Diplo.)

Ibiza Moment: DJ Funk: 'Knock Knock' Vs Blacka Ranks 'Take Off Something'

2. Playgroup: Party Mix



The first time I heard this tape I found myself dumbfounded.  I was just trying to get into one beat when another one jumps in to take its place.  Apart from insane DJ Assault mixes, I can't think of any compilation that plays you less of any one song.  Trevor Jackson's Party Mix grew and grew on me, and the lack of tracklist made it all the more interesting, in the tradition of DJs covering the labels on their records to avoid people copying their choices.  At the time I read that there was a prize for anyone who could name all the tunes, which range from disco and funk to soundtrack and new wave, something that I have never felt confident enough to attempt.  Some of the tunes are obvious, some obscure, but they are cut and blended in such a fashion that this hour is irresistible to the backpack muso and the top-of-the-popster.

Ibiza Moment:  Too many to mention

1.  2 Many DJs: As Heard On Radio Soulwax Part 2



It's not hip anymore, but that doesn't alter the significance of this tape to me myself and the millions of others who couldn't get this out of the CD player for months and months a few years ago.  Ignoring the wildly ambitious selection of bangers, both old and new, the amount of work that went into the re-editing of some of the instrumentals and vocal tracks is unfathomable.  Not to mention the difficulty that they must have had in getting the rights to all the songs in order to sell this album.  This tape opened my eyes to a lot of new ideas and will be eternally indebted to it for that.

Ibiza Moment: The Cramps: 'Human Fly

Saturday Morning Anti-Cranberries Gangsta Prophecy

I remember copping this album for Christmas about ten years ago, and thinking it was AMAZING. Unfortunately for Daz and Kurupt, they never blew up like Snoop and Dre etc etc, but a revisit to some of the tunes contained within certainly deserved lasting attention.

This particular joint goes out to all the people who have been on their bare arses this past week before payday.

Short Circuitry // November 2009

The Rehashing Continues



Never one to resist a challenge, here's a re-edit challenge that I failed to resist.  Based on a slice of happy-go-lucky rap history, I sliced out the (in my opinion) annoying parts, leaving (in my opinion) the greatest re-edit of Whistle's (Nothin' Serious) Only Buggin' ever done in one day by a rank amateur.

What up Daniel Savio...?

We spoke to Flogsta Danshall's main man... Daniel Savio.


What is your current favourite record?
There are so many good records both new and old (I mainly play and listen to old music except for skweee, that's really the only "modern" stuff i play). Also I listen to all sorts of music from hip hop, funk/soul/disco, folk rock, psychedelia, pop, synth/new wave/ebm, classical.

So my answer would be Randy Barracuda´s album and Robert Görl "Night full of tension".



What is the ultimate end of the night track?


Pretty difficult question, maybe "Blinkar Blå" by Adolphson & Falk (Swedish 80's synth pop duo)



Which artist gets ultimate Daniel Savio respect right now?

Too many to mention but if we are talking skweee it will of course be Pavan otherwise I would say Edvard Grieg.



& James Brown (still the king)...



What parties are showing the rest how it's done?

Flogsta Nattliv, Top Nice (London and Stockholm) and All Out Dubstep.

What is your Plat du Jour?

The Loved One (really great movie from 1965)



Finally... Here's our Plat du Jour. Plat du Jour's Plat du Jour... Released earlier this year on Flogsta Danshall Records. Monkey Wee Monkey Poo. Second time on the blog and deservedly so!

Madlib... Medicine Show! x12 CDS

While I can say that I love Madlib, I do think that not everything he touches turns to gold. Maybe Stones Throw would disagree but a x12 CD set could either be amazing, or very dull... I am worried! Ever since seeing him beat konduct a 47 hour drum solo I know he has self indulgent tendencies. But maybe his die-hard fans want that? Maybe they want everything on a plate so they can select.

I do LOVE, and I mean LOVE Guilty Simpson though. He is definitely top 5 wordsmiths ever amongst Ghostface, Klashnekoff, Jay-Z and hmmm... one more. EDAN! Very excited though to hear about a new album from Madlib and Guilty called OJ Simpson.

Here is a track that will feature on Disc 1 of 12... This will be the one you pay attention to...

MP3: Madlib & Guilty Simpson - The Paper from Madlib Medicine Show No. 1
