So we are in Belgium, the land of chips, waffles, Jupiler and ugly people. Tonight sees us playing on the 5th date of the Sweat X 'Go Black Go Low Go Fast' tour, we hooked up with the deranged PartyhardERS a while back and are re-visiting the city and its various pubs. Liege lies on the border with The Netherlands, which is also know as Holland. Holland is the second name of one of our favourite DJs, Hannah Holland. Hannah Holland has just sent us her brand new minimix......(unggghh see what I did there?). Its fucking tough....

Every now and then all this blog/mp3/internet/myspace shit gets too much. Mixtapes are becoming almost identical to each other in their tracklisting, songs sound like second rate Justice impersonators trying to sound like third rate Daft Punk impersonators, people start taking the genre 'blog house' seriously. There's a whole school of thought dedicated to the fact that the immediacy and readiness of the internet is slowly killing culture (it's kind of led by this guy Andrew Keen who wrote "The Cult of the Amateur: How Today's Internet is Killing Our Culture", check him out here, I'm not about to go into details, I'm not cleverer enough). Usually when I start feeling like this, somebody pops up to completely contradict my pessimistic and negative thoughts.
This time it was Detboi. Homeboy popped up out of the blue after I was passed a CD from On The Brink's label manager. Now we are by no means the first to get a heads up on the dude, in fact we are somewhat lagging in terms of 'blog-exclusiveness', most of his tracks have already been blogged to death. But I'm still into pushing the guy because he just 'gets' music, listen to what he did with 'Waters of Nazareth', took a played out (but still exceptional) song, made it DJ friendly and added a bit of buzzy energy and attitude to it and hey presto! His other productions/bootlegs/mashups speak the same volume, whether you like it or not, it's all quality.
Included is this track, 'Wreck The Disco' is a big club track that sounds like it's flown straight out of Baltimore via Ireland and landed happily on the club soundsystems of London. You can't go wrong with stuttered vocals and you can't go wrong with big buzzed basslines, add a sprinkling of sexy mamas and you have a track I will be playing out for a while. Oh....and the sexy brazilian up there? That's for you to look at whilst you are listening to this shit....happy ears, happy eyes.
Detboi - Wreck The Disco (Thats right)

So the wonderful Scattermish gets in touch...we are all like 'Yo!' and he's all like 'Y0! Check this!' and then we're all like 'YO! For sure yo.' and then he's all like 'Yo thanks.'
Great stuff this internet.
Scattermish - Switch n Sinden/Brink n Jaxx (scattermash)

We have got a BIG weekend coming up! First we pop down to see Sweat X play their first ever gig in Europe at Fonteyn's Computer Blue (Bar Music Hall, Curtain Rd, E1), then its off to move the crowd (Sweat X in tow) at the jump off that is Magic Circle (Egg, York Way)...just when you thought is was all over we journey up to The Aquarium for the re-birth of the messiness that is Redlight Afterhours.
Saturday sees us play alongside Sweat X (again), Punks Jump Up and David Wasserman at The Old Blue Last (Gt Eastern St)....phew, see you in the gutter!
There are some amazing electro house bootlegs simply titled 'Daft Mixes', the one of Groove Armada 'Get down' is the best song I have heard for ages (I'll post it in a bit, I'm still too attached to blog). I don't know where these bootlegs are originating from (if anyone does, please let me know)....
This is a mix of Eric Prydz's mix of Pink Floyd's 'Proper Education' and is dirty-filthy....
Proper Education (daft mix)

Enya's Fade away has become a bit of a unlikely hit and has been bootlegged a lot recently --- I made this edit bout two years ago (believe me or not I don't care).
It's a really simple mash up between the original and Buccaneers version, I used to end the night with it... nice long intro... and then ragga ragga ragga... bo bo bo

Fidget House music makes me happy. This song especially so, it's from up and coming Dj- Gem the Brave's younger brother Joshua. It has heavy bass and a groove that makes your teeth itch..... what a family!
Joshua-buzz from the biz
Hip hop doesn't normally touch me but the Cool Kids are blowing me away at the moment. Imagine Boogie Down Productions stuck in a lift with the Neptunes and Snoop Dogg
Cool Kids- Black Mag
PS: sorry.... wrong mp3 posted.... fixed
Dr. Switch & Mr. Portamento- B2 from their untitled EP out on Clone. A dark slab of disjointed electro, perfect for doing the washing up to or practising your 'Robot' or washing up in the style of a robot
Dr. Switch & Mr. Portamento- B2
When Gangsta Rapper DMX isn't busy insulting us crackers- apparently him and some of his mates make spaced b-boy style breaks with amazing keyboard solo's- nice.
Dmx Krew - Ready to roll
When the week gets too much take one of those pills you nicked off you granddad when he was very unwell and listen to Prefuse- you'll awake feeling much much better
Prefuse 73 - Matrimoniods
If I ever perfect my hypnotism technique and convince a lady to marry me, I want the sermon read out in the style of vocals in this track. I particularly like the shout out to the guy who makes the tea and coffee
Giorgio vs Talla 2xlc -emc2
PS: If you like any of this go and buy it!!!!!

This has a habit of splitting the dance floor- half are pumping their fists and the other half have grimaces at the horror of Kaiser chiefs vocals (something I can relate to)
It still remains a bit of old favourite of mine though. The song builds for about half a century before breaking into Boys Noize trade mark distortion. If this were the 90's and I had a pony tail I'd call it a 'BANGER'
Kaiser Chiefs - Everyday I love you less less Boys Noize mix
Welcome to your week. I don't like Mondays either. But here is some good, scratch that, FUCKING GREAT news to bring a smile to your face.
Remember we posted something about Sweat X a few month ago? About how they were amazing and we wished they would play a show over here? Dream.Come.True.
Sweat X present the 'Go Black Go Low Go Fast' tour...with not one, but FIVE chances to see them over here (they also play Paris, CPH, Belgium and a whole lot more). Obviously, the best party will be Get Rude where they appear with Fake Blood and Isa GT.
So yeah, listen to this, I defy you not to get exxxcited!
Sweat X - Nu Flex Cowabunga Mix

I love you Claude- please move from San Francisco to London so I can court you in a Victorian manner with chaperones, parasols and petite coats.
Claude Von Stroke- Birdshit Remix of Frankie Bullshit
On the love topic- one for the producers- just found this hard to come by acapella-
Donna summer - I feel love
Dug up a lot of my old Miami bass for a mix I've just done (watch this space)- two tracks for you:
1: Ring my phone Shantell and Dwayne- two kids rapping over a heavy 808 beat with crazy TV samples - can't go wrong-
ring my phone shantell dwayne
Sleeze Boyz - Z.O.I.D.S. A bit of drum machine sexy space bass- macho, sexist and amazing
Sleeze Boyz - Z.O.I.D.S.
If you wanna read more bout Miami hit up Electro Empire
