Michoacan – In the Dark of the Night (2010)

The 'Clap Rules' remix is the absolute shit. Best DFA release for ages, might even warrant me wearing their t-shirt to work tomorrow. Love it.

Long Range - Control Me EP (2009)

Phil Hartnoll, one half of the infamous Orbital, back together with his Brighton based production partner Nick Smith. Never going to be as good if Paul Hartnoll was involved and something I'm really seeming to notice with regards to the percussive arrangements and their appetite to try new and innovative thing. Perhaps a bit harsh as their debut album wasn't too bad at all. Anyway, keeping true to form I will persist to post anything that has a hint of Orbital. Best track for me is 'Tools'.

Tracklisting:

1. Control Me
2. Tools
3. Flip

Julio Bashmore - Julio Bashmore EP (2009)

Julio Bashmore is a young Bristol based producer and DJ. I first picked up on his track 'Moth' which featured on a Fabric compilation. It was by far the stand out track for me. He's managing to blend a heap of styles together, which I just love and is a real indication of any healthy music scene. Apparently he describes his music as an awkward mix of house, disco and dubstep. Call it what you will, but it's a nice follow on from the Ramadanman material I was posting a few months ago.

Tracklisting:

1. Um Bongo's Revenge
2. World Peace

Barbara Morgenstern - Come To Berlin Remixes (2008)

More German lyrics, don't know why I like them but I do. If you enjoyed the Quarks posts a few months back you need to get involved in this. It includes an outstanding remix by my personal favourites Telefon Tel Aviv. As well as a more torrid techno affair from French techno mistress Chloé Mix. Lovely stuff indeed.

Tracklisting:

1. Come To Berlin (The Rice Twins Mix)
2. Come To Berlin (Telefon Tel Aviv Mix)
3. Come To Berlin (Chloé Mix)
4. Come To Berlin (Single Mix)

Slacker - Scared (1996)

I'm back again, unreliable as ever, apologies.

Anyway, late last night, or very early this morning, I was up listening to a few old tunes and this one really stood out. Back in 1996 I was frequenting a club night called The Gallery at Turnmills, Clerkenwell, London. When looking back I'd have to say they are some of my best clubbing memories and without doubt was the final motivation I needed to start producing music myself.

This tune by Slacker was one of the anthems of The Gallery. It's got real funky and relentless bassline and it's combined with what I guess you'd call trance. It's the 'Lonely Traveller' mix which is my favourite.

Tracklisting:

1. Scared (Edit)
2. Scared (Pob Seismix)
3. Scared (Dylan Rhymes Remix)
4. Scared (The Lonely Traveller)
5. Scared (Of Tomorrow)
