OFFSHOOTS YOOOO

Posted in Acoustic, Ambient, Club, Dance, Disco, Disco House, Dub Step, Electro, Electronica, Experimental on February 23, 2010 by megaphoneteeth

It has been to long since my words have come across this corner of the information super highway, but like my other compadres i have jumped on a new project. ELEPHANT SHOESSS is my new adventure. Much like the 317 crew this blog profiles for the most part electro with a few variations here and there. Come check me out if you feel the need, got some groovy tunes for everyone’s ears.

317 will be missed. The boys and I have had a great time running the site. The love of music is passed on through not only Aereal Noise, an other offshoot of 317 but also my new adventure Elephantshoesss. It is sad to see things go, but chapters concluded and eras end. The Elephant Crew is still in the opening stages of this blog so there are a few adjustments and considerations still needed to be made, but nonetheless some attention and traffic i am sure will get things moving fast. So enjoy lighting a fire under my ass with a little love for the former 317 readers.

Where’d My Roomies Go?

Posted in Electro with tags on October 29, 2009 by adam

Today’s a sad day in the 317 world. I lost contact with my old homies who I used to run this blog with.  Moving on after undergrad allowed everyone to move on to new things.  So I guess it’s my turn to follow suit.  I’m temporarily putting the stop to this blog until I figure out the direction I want to take with it.  I don’t have the time to maintain an entire blog on my own and finish my academics right now.  However…

Bad news can always come with some good.  I’m moving to a new project entitled aerial noise.  Those guys have asked me to occasionally lend a hand with their site.  It’s a brand new MP3 blog along the same genre as us focusing on electro and disco.  This is a better fit for me as it gives me more time for school.

You’ll find a clean, crisp layout with direct downloads, streaming MP3 samples straight from the website, daily posts, monthly recaps, and the occasional interesting remark. The most inviting aspect is the daily posts.  Stop by every morning to get something new to start off your day.

So in reality the spirit of 317 (from my end at least) is simply moving on to another domain.   Thanks for helping us at 317 get this far! We may try to get this thing going again in the future but for now find me at aerial noise and let us know what you think.

The Giants

miamihorror

Miami Horror is phenomenal.  I like nearly everything Benjamin Vanguarde produces under his alias.  The Australian native seems fixated on staying home by filling his calender with dates devoted to his home country.  We need to somehow get him overseas after the Australian tour.  Vanguarde’s newest is the first single from the 2010 album Illumination.  It’s definitely worth the peak.

Miami Horror – Sometimes

Miami Horror’s Make You Mine is one of a kind.  It has laid the foundation to a plethora of newly constructed remixes that simply rock the world.  Check out Cassian and Falke‘s versions here, but despite the remix the original cannot be beat.  Funky and fresh you just can’t find another ‘oldie’ that renders what this can.

A-Trak

Last Monday A-Trak released his much anticipated remix to Yeah Yeah Yeahs, Heads Will Roll. The teaser was spectacular but the full length track is unbelievably better.  I didn’t get a chance to post it earlier so if you don’t have it grab it below.  A-Trak goes wild on it. He kicks in a variety of verses and sporadic beats that will have clubs and parties everywhere craving for more.  I pitty the track that has to unfortunately follow this mix wherever it is played.

Yeah Yeah Yeahs – Heads Will Roll (A-Trak Remix)

Yeah Yeah Yeahs – You Are Never Alone With Model 21 (Justin Faust Club Remix)

Ultracity came around with a new remix to Grum‘s Runaway that is damn good.  It lightens up the original a little bit. Grum’s original is not half bad either, and well neither is Doctor Detroit.  Enjoy the whole package.

Grum – Runaway (Ultracity Remix)

BONUS!

Reminiscent of the So Electric instrumental vibe I miss from Lifelike.

meterhead

LA-based METERHEAD has put together a fantastic new EP featuring three great remixes (Wale, Acid Girls, and The Black Lips).  I can’t get enough of this Acid Girls remix right now.  It’s my personal favourite and comes ready for the hardwood. Get ready to move.

Acid Girls Feat Frankmusik – Wake Up (METERHEAD Remix)

PinkIsPunk

Pink is Punk caught my attention with another ridiculous remix.  This time a Dub-styled heavy hitter version of Rondo Parisiano.  It’s real simple but effective and the base line won’t quit.  Easy to catch yourself head bobbin’ too.

SomethingALaMode – Rondo Parisiano (Pink Is Punk Remix)

florence

The XX recently updated their show listings for the upcoming season and have included some special Canadian dates. Be sure to check out one of the following venues.  Their new-ish remix of Florence + The Machine’s You’ve Got The Love is excellent.

Nov 26.09 – Vancouver @ The Commodore Ballroom

Dec 02.09 – Toronto @ Mod Club

Dec 03.09 – Montreal @ Le National

monarchy

The new demo from Monarchy is impressive to say the least.  The London duo are bringing some flare to some soft electro jams.  The track starts off slow until the melodies break into one another, from there it simply takes off.  I’m digging every second of it.  It’s hard to throw out a comparison for you because there’s many different elements to it.  A great mood track to carry you throughout the night.  Brilliant.  I wish I had a label so I could attempt to sign these guys.

Monarchy – Gold In The Fire (Demo)

russ chimes

Russ Chimes is a pretty sure thing when it comes to providing gold for the dance floor.  His latest remix comes from LA Nights, which is now available on itunes.  It’s the typical smash from Chimes who never ever seems to disappoint.  Myspace is a good place to catch more bangers.

Fabian – Heatwave (Russ Chimes Remix)

chromeo

I’m sure by now you’ve all caught the new single Night by Night from Chromeo released a few weeks back.  All the remixes have came and gone and for now, I found one that really leaves a punch.  Skream’s remix just barely edged out the new version from DJ Anonymous.  The laidback take does wonders to compliment the pop-based lead vocals from Dave 1.  But I still love the funky rework Anonymous does.  Anyway I included both, if you feel like sharing post your fav.  If you don’t have the original electric avenue has it for you here.

Chromeo – Night By Night (Skream Remix)

Chromeo – Night By Night (DJ Anonymous Remix)

Alan Braxe is one of the few individuals who can reproduce mainstream music into listening gold.  Not that teeny boppers don’t have an ear for great music….”To the window! To the wall!” haha; I’m just saying that Braxe definitely knows how to turn it up a notch and it doesn’t matter what piece of music you start him out with.  The newest remix to hit us last week was Broken-Hearted Girl.  Fantastic Dub remix, but there’s a slow and bothersome Radio Edit out there… so don’t get confused.  The ‘right’ version is listed below.

Beyoncé – Broken-Hearted Girl (Alan Braxe Dub Remix)

The interview above is crazy fascinating and Too Many Sebastians led me to it so thanks for that.

Night Flight

night flight

This track is awesome.  Amazing disco vibes that hail samples from the incredible Stevie Wonder.  The long instrumental interlude is so impressive Stevie’s vocals are not really needed; but when those sample’s do come in.. wow, he kills it.  I know a few other great instrumentals by The Revenge, however nothing quite hits me like this.

Electric Wire Hustle

electricwirehustle

Wellington, New Zealand’s Electric Wire Hustle are out to prove soul and funk are alive and well.  This track is disgustingly good. Mara TK does an exceptional job with the lyrics and if these guys can continue to produce gems this good, watch for them to easily compete with the best out there.  They had their first vinyl, a 12″ EP released through Wonderful Noise Records Japan, and also just released another self-titled EP last July.  Hit up both if you’re diggin’ the goodness below.
