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)


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.

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.

Justin Faust is Still Kickin’

Give it up for Justin Faust.  The man representing Valerie released a bunch of new remixes over the last few weeks that are incredible.  Among the stack of beauties are these two gems.  Mad danceable, mad catchy, mad vibrant, and mad good.  Included in the new batch is also a new take on Missy Elliot’s Work It Out that has a lot of people talking.  Listen in on hypem here.  Find it hosted on Discodust if you want it.  But to me that track has nothing on the two listed below.

I don’t think I’m ever going to stop liking really funky tracks that combine variations of disco.  With that in mind I’m also not going to fall off the DCUP bandwagon anytime soon.  So when I first started getting into the group a few months back this track hit me and it instantly stuck.  I think it will impress a lot of you.  The same goes for Le Babar. He is also good… really good.  His new funk track It’s On You is excellent.  Check out his myspace for more fresh music in electro, house and funk.
