Throw Your Funk in My Backyard

What the fuck is going on, hope everyone is doing well. I’m finally back again after a long hiatus and posting for the first time since our highly anticipated move to wordpress.com, but I am happy to say that I’m now employed and getting my shit together, kinda.

As I’m sure most of you have heard, Melbourne, Australia’s mad man Knightlife, who is down with cutter records (317 loves Cut Copy), has just dropped his new Ep and I was able to scoop this funky gem care of our blog roll. Pretty hype with a fresh disco vibe, say what? Say word.

Knightlife – Crusader (Radio Edit)

Next up is a remix by the Italian Broke One, another favourite of 317 who we did a post on way back in February, (which you can peep right here). This time around he gives his Italian disco flair to a Coal Stairs track, who hail from Montpellier in France. The result is an upbeat housed out banger that’s full of cuts, drops and a golden breakdown towards the end.

Coal Stairs – Fuji 111 (Broke One Remix)

Moving right along, from Helsinki Finland, and this one is a bit of a mouthful for me, but Hannulelauri put a super funky twist on fellow Fins Zebra and Snake‘s track the Colours. Disco is no stranger to the funk involved here, but overall a pretty mellow and hypnotic adventure.

Zebra and Snake – the Colours (Hannulelauri Remix)

To round things up, a remix to another dope group and fav. of 317, Sydney’s Sneaky Sound System, this time by Flight Facilities, who’s music is heard all the way from Trinidad and Tobago. Consequently, we get to enjoy a super funky disco jam that has a Lifelike or Fred Falke like baseline that envelopes the synth loops; dance floor madness.

Sneaky Sound System – 16 (Flight Facilities Remix)

Peace and Love.

Hold On To That Heavy Orange Box

Andy Webb, the Sydney man behind Disco Delicious and talented producer of Ottos Golden Journey, has sent us his latest mash-up remix.  Hold On To That Heavy Orange Box layers Holy Ghost!, Metro Area, In Flagranti, Barbara Norris, and The Rapture to create a stellar masterpiece.  Following what he started in ’08, watch for this track to blow up over the course of the year as more and more people stumble across it.  Great, great mix.  Thanks for sending this in A.W.

A-Ux

A-ux is a one man project from New York working predominantly in electro, disco house, and shoegaze.  He transcends from classical music where he was versed heavily in piano.  As a result, he loves to throw down on the keys integrating it into his sound.  The result is unique and original.  All three of these tracks below are pretty damn good, but keep an eye out for some more new stuff to be released soon via his myspace.

A-ux – Less Hate, More Love

A-ux – Neon Generation

A-ux – NY Dreamer

Baby Baby Baby

Make The Girl Dance recently released a new video to their single Baby Baby Baby.  The track itself is gaining a lot of attention internationally and with a video this cool expect it to get a lot of playtime.  The rock/electro duo in MTGD are the newest French electro to come my way.  Others to check in to are Le Matos and Numero#, possibly even Yelle.  The track South showcases some great dancy bass that I’m simply loving.  Like the works of Cinnamon Chasers and Discorockets posted a few weeks back, this instrumental is great.

The rest of Phoenix‘s remixes to Lisztomania, the new single off the soon to released new album,  have all recently dropped the past few days.  They contend with the previously posted Classixx remix we had shared earlier but was later rejected by blogger.  Thanks to WordPress- and a group of talented artists, we have a bunch of great new renditions to share with you.  Listen, judge, and critique.  Comment the winner.  Let the games begin!

Passion Pit are exploding.

passion

Passion Pit are slowly starting to become over hyped.  I keep hearing all this talk about Passion Pit becoming the next big fruity pop explosion, following the path that MGMT had created the past two years.  Personally, I’m not feeling the comparison.  Both are great unique groups that need to be distinguished separately.  It’s not really important though because while one project was massive, the other is slowly becoming huge themselves.  Passion Pit are currently hitting it huge and are having a considerable amount of talent dropping in dope mix after another to their tracks.  We have already tossed out a Calvin Harris mix found here, but below is a small preview of some of the gold Passion Pit + company have been making.  Some real good shit, especially that Burns remix.

Been off the grind for sometime now, much work and school to keep me busy for days and days. Anyways, i have come across a few things i would like to through up on the fresh new WordPress account. Came across these guys, The Whitest Boy Alive, actually from a interview with A-Trak found on pitchfork. I have a couple of tracks here that you might want to check out, they have a real nice pop sound to them with some great lyrics. I have decided not to through up any remixes this time around, but for some reason i think the a Fred Falke remix might be floating around on our little corner of the information superhighway. Here are a few tracks that i have taken a liking to, enjoy. (MySpace)

Summer has finally felt like it has arrived! BOP BOP BOP and in turn i have dug up some of my old reggae tracks from last summer and started playing them here and there once again, i have got a two classics that i would love to share. Some great tunes that need to be heard. Enjoy these ones … some of my favorite tunes.

Reggae sound system

Dawn Penn – You Don’t Love Me (No, No, No)

(if anyone knows of an acoustic version to this track, let me know)

Keith and Tex – Stop That Train

Detroit has some serious musical history, i don’t even have to get started i am sure you guys must know. But hey, Germany makes cars too …  Anyways the Motor City Drum Ensemble (which are from Germany) have a interesting house sound to them but at the same time some serious hiphop funk vibe as well.  This track has some serious groove to it and i cant wait to hear more but this is all i can really find for the time being. Check out their myspace for some other dope shit.

Motor City Drum Ensemble – Raw Cut 2

Oh dear fuck, this track is off the hook, much respect to CubikMusik for dropping this one on a post. These guys have some funk in them, let me tell you. hit this tune up and you wont be disappointed, seriously. It has a bit of a syncopated slow burn feel it to, get a bucket because summertime just pours from this track.

The Poets of Rhythm

The Poets of Rhythm – Mo’ Mess On My Thing
