cool-kids

Alright, i know i have been on a bit of a hiatus from the 317 scene for a bit, but I am back in action and have some grimy grimy stuff this time around. Been in a bit of the summer spaceman trip lately with the work and the party scene but i got some interesting stuff for everyone to check out, have a listen and take what you like.


bloody beatroots

First of we got the The Blood Beatroots with some interesting sounds junk on the fly right now. The First track i gots is with the Cool Kids. Admittedly not a huge fan of the Cool Kids but this track and a degree of grimy i kind of dig on. If you like that whole electro hip hop scene check this track. The second remix i have thrown up here has a real Boyz Noize Disco club feel to it. Give it a listen and judge for yourself. Gets pretty grimey and at about 1:39, enjoy.

The Bloody Beatroots ft. Cool Kids – Awesome

Timberland – Miscommunication (The Bloody Beatroots Remix)


The Bloody Beatroots – Ill to Destroy


6thboroughproject

I got another track from the Revenge, please check out their myspace i cant stress this enough. A lot of song i can seem to acquire so i have been forced to rock them off of the myspace platform, lame and i don’t like it but have to make do. Anyways, check out this new track, got some surrrrious flow to it. Just guna give some love to myspace and the the whole “friends” thing, came across this mother fucker Craig Smith as a result and am deeply dig on this track check it out. It has got a prefect build up to it which never really seems to blow up but rather expand and expand, you’ll know what i am talking about when you hear it.

The Revenge – Hotz 4 U

(I have had to link this Revenge track to another blog because for the life of me i can not find it any where else on the information superhighway. Give Hate Something Beautiful some love.)

Craig Smith/ 6th Borough Project – Do it to the Max

Schaatz on 317

schaatz

Discovered in France after playing a few gigs early this spring, Schaatz first broke their sound to the world via the London radio program Hello Goodby Resonance 104.4 FM.  They must have made some noise.  Viva Radio NY soon followed and they will be featured live on the French program Telekim in September.

They are currently staying busy by making music for a short horror film that replica’s the style and tradition of Argenta, Jean Rollin.  Needless to say, this brand new project has been moving extremely fast over the past few months.  So we are proud to be one of the first to showcase the dark, ambient, and electric vibes these two produce.  A rare exclusive. Enjoy, and don’t forget to hit them up on their myspace with any comments and love.

Schaatz – Barbara Lisa Chloe

Schaatz – Terminus

tanlines

Nice weather deserves good music.  While we were hit with some rain today the last few days were spectacular.  Fitting, a group called Tanlines hit my library the past week, and well, wow.   The tracks New Flowers and Bejan particularly grabbed my attention.  Simply put- awesome.  The sound is a cross between some very experimental electro and hypnotic disco vibes.  It’s hard not to want more.  But good news! Tanlines are in the area soon! Shows in Montreal (Jun 19) and Toronto (Jun 20).  Check the concert listings for more info.

Tanlines – New Flowers

Tanlines – Bejan

Mikro is another funky fresh summer jam I picked up the other day.  Very ‘summery’ instrumental feel to it.

Mikro – The Sun In My Face

BONUS!

PNAU – With You Forever

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.

Baby Baby Baby

Posted in Dance, Electro, Electronica, Experimental with tags on May 25, 2009 by adam

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.

airyscover

Pink is Punk released one sick remix to Airys Vedo In Te this past week. Italo funky electro pop is one way to describe the rooted Milano artists. Both projects have teamed up to create this new track. It’s one of a kind and absolutely covered in good.

Airys – Vedo In Te (Pink is Punk Remix)

fearoftigers

Well, I’m definitely not the first to be introduced to Fear of Tigers. These guys are great. They sound as if they just emerged from the old retro 80’s scene where no one knew what to do with the lights and the new sounds, and simply perfected it. It’s a bold statement but with one listen I was tossed back into my childhood reliving the precursor to the dance parties created by the sweet annual albums of Dance Mix 93, 94, and 95. I hope they bring you the same nostalgic feeling that hit me when I was first heard these two tracks.

Fear of Tigers – The Adventure of Pippi Longstump (Original)

Fear of Tigers – The Rich Cry Too (Original)

sferro
Fear of Tigers tossed up a lot of new great synth which naturally led me to Sferro. The one man monster in Eric Sferro is talented as anyone in making infectious vibes that make you move. The instrumentals are ridiculously delightful. There’s lots of goodies out there so if you like what you hear hit his myspace or further search on hype.

Funked Up – No Ditchin (Sferro Remix)

Sferro – Sexy Talents

Mmm, mmm, mmm… too much tasty stuff to mention (in the title)

First things first, I have been MIA for tons and this my first post for the month, damn son! As such, I have been building on this post for way too long; each day I find some new dope tracks too add to the list, but its already huge! So here we go, and I apologize in advance. Also, there are minimal pics because I went crazy with song postage… word is bond!

Number one – neighbours to the south, Blacklight Flashlight (If your down with hockey, go Blue Jackets!). In any event, these dudes keep it mad real and although I only have one track to share with you, I know we have had a post of a remix these guys did a little while back, which you can get to here. So yeah this track is really funky with a great disco keyboard-synth vibe, add in some nice drums and you have a pretty radical tune. I am on the hunt for more Blacklight Flashlight, if their other stuff is like this, I can’t wait. The goods:

Blacklight Flashlight – Dreaming In

Numéro deux, and I apologize for the cliche remark, but this is a straight up French connection; 317 favourtite Breakbot and fellow Frenchmen Yuksek together, drop the heat on this one. This track has been circling the blog world for a little while now, so out with the goods:

Yuksek – Extraball (Breakbot Remix)

Next up, some super funky Brazilians known as the Twelves (as if you hadn’t heard!) combine with local heroes Metric. From Rio to Toronto, actually that is unfair, I know Metric is part Canadian, but I am unsure about which part, my bad. In any case this remix is money, these dudes know what they are doing and you should not be shy; partake in what the Twelves are ready to give you. Mad love:

Metric – Help I’m Alive (the Twelves Remix)

Moving right along, over the last month I have come across a couple tracks by the Torontonian known for funky electro – Hemingway. Apparently, not much is known of this elusive Canadian yet, although, word on the street is he is a mean DJ. Once again, my bad on the lack of info, but take a gamble if you’re new to the name, this song was also remixed a while back by the Brazilians mentioned above. So here is a little Canadian-funk twist:

the Virgins – Rich Girls (Hemingway Remix)

Featured alongside Mr. Hemingway, fellow Torontonians (and Montrealers) – DVAS. These dudes make sick ass disco house. I’m going to be brutally honest, these tracks are both awesome, but the first one is a gem, think more disco-ish Daft Punk (really?! Yes.). Amazing build-ups and great tripped out dance potential. Oh and SymbolOne, these guys are crazy good as well, and I’ve got a dope remix of theirs to share. And if their story is true as per their my space page – craziness! Hey! Have Fun:

DVAS – Forever

DVAS – Ambient Room (SymbolOne Remix)

Okay, two left. A remix to this track has been featured here before on an older post which you can get to here (Broke One kills it). This time around, however, Youth has blessed the Elke track with his London vibes; his synth break down is straight up and down fucking fantastic, recognize! (I know that’s aggressive, but I promise its awesome). Straight from the shores of the UK:

Elke – Blue Dream Lover (Youth Remix)

Mates from Leeds represent hard on this track. This one was also featured a little while ago, get it here (Paul Epwoth + Friendly Fires = Magical/Epic). But to the same token, Grum from Leeds lays down a super gnarly remix. Below is a poster that gives a pretty good description – “Tasty Shit!” I hate to judge, but I totally saved the best for last, this track makes me way too happy, so please enjoy:

Friendly Fires – Skeleton Boy (Grum Remix)

Wow, that was a little much, again, my bad, I got carried away and I knew it from the get-go. Post up in the comments section if you’re diggin’ on the tracks, we love to hear from you!

P.s. I lied, one last track I promise. No info on this gem, but Kennedy kills it here; this is a great summer funk-disco jam that would sound killer out the window of your Ford Tempo, or at your house party. And if this track doesn’t make you smile, I just shed a tear for you. The nice weather bonus:

Kennedy – Karate

As always, represent the my space pages of the artists you dig and of course, tons of peace and love.
