Remember when normal radio used to be good? Before it got taken over by stylesluts that play what they get paid for? Just like when the Breezeblock on Radio 1 used to be an event I used to look forward to. Here is the DJ Assault(legend) VS Cutlass Supreme Breezeblock session that is now over 4 years old, pretty much dust in blog years.

We don't post enough Italo and Cosmic on here, I'm not sure why as we both love it loads. Here is a mix from DJ Mooner, he used to be one half of Zombie Nation and now makes sublime wonky disco tracks straight outta Munich. I first met Mooner halfway up a mountain in Austria, he was playing at the Tirk stage of Snowbombing. Catching a suntan whilst relaxing on a deckchair, surrounded by snow AND listening to the nicest mix of Italo Disco ever made for a very unforgettable experience!
Heres his New Year mix, and be sure to check out his Elaste Vol.1 and 2!!

So we made that Less Is More mix after being inspired by the Claude Vonstroke Essential mix, it contained a load of jacking, minimal, wonkly masterpieces with a sprinkling of miami bass and juke samples. Some would call them blends, some would call them 'mash-ups' and some would just download the fucking thing and play it to the ladies.
Frankie/DJ Chip - Valz/Aw Shit

Okay, still reeling from our Dutch excursion (I'm sorry to harp on about it)...
You know who much us Zombies love new dances, new dance songs, ghetto kids getting loose etc, well we found a new one. Its called 'Jumpstyle' and seems to be most popular in Holland and the Dutch speaking parts of Belgium, the music that accompanies this wierd, choreographed dance is like a slowed down version of Gabba. It is huge in Holland, with ringtones and mobile videos and all of that. Unlike the Wu Tang Slide, which is COOL and WICKED, Jumpstyle is STUPID and very, very WHITE...please view the video, have a little giggle at the idiots and then FORGET it all happened.
Okay Okay, it was too damn nice to keep to myself. Here is the Ron Carroll track we mentioned below, if you like it, go cop the EP from Beatport or something. The nice guys over at the Housemusic blog pasted the Bart B More link in the comments, we also got pointed in the direction of the Bart B More post on the Mad Decent blog as well (hmmm, good idea that...a post on Bart B More? Maybe we should get on that before anyone else?). We here at Zombie towers are working on the new Ghetto House Top Ten, make sure you post some ideas in the comments box if you want to contribute.
Signing out, the Zombie-did-it-before-you-Squad.
Ron Carroll - Walking Down the Street

We just back from the club...put the TV on, once we managed to get past 30 poor soft porn channels we got to TMF (the local European music channel) and THIS was playing. Best ghetto house track we have heard in a long time. Just copped it from Beatport, a prize goes to whoever can track down the Bart B More remix!
Amshderdam, clogshh, shexy girlsch....Schara Jeshica Perker (that ones a private joke).
Boom! We are in Amsterdam and tonight we are off to The Andy Warhol Club for a fashionista partay! Then tommorow we play Flex Club and Stalker over in nearby Haarlem. Fittingly, (techno goes down well here) we have a techno stomper by our boy Charlie Fanclub. The Derbly local has produced a nice jacking, bass heavy tech track theat would go over well late night....download it and play it, go and say 'waschup dood' over here.
Charlie Fanclub - Splash

Every now and then a producer pops up and makes musical gold consistently until they get rich and fall off BIG TIME, Mr. B More has been doing it for a while and shows no sign of stopping (or getting too big for his boots). I have been really liking pretty much every single one of his tracks or remixes. This is a recent favourite.
Gregor Salto ft Andy Sherman - Erasmus (drop that beat Bart B More remix)

For the first time this year I got up before 12, and flicked on the telly to find my good old friends the chuckle brothers on, rather than being the nostalgic experience I was hoping for it turned into a horrible parade of two old men who really should be doing something else now. Doing slap stick with liver spots is not a good look.
I'm just starting to feel almost human after a very messy NYE (don't smoke things when you don't know whats in 'em kids) and to celebrate being able to eat, walk, sleep and talk properly here are some very good tracks
RIVASTARR- We can't stop going on about him and Mowgli enough. Watch out for some real exciting projects this year!
Rivastarr - Crazy Frog
Bo$$ in Drama are a Brazilian act that caught my attention this morning whilst doing a my space hunt for new music- I particularly liked their remixes of Bonde Do Role and Yo Majesty (which are below). For the rest of their productions go to their myspace where you can download em for free- what nice guys
YO MAJESTY - KRYPTONITE PUSSY (bo$$ in drama remix)
BONDE DO ROLE - CONTAMINADA (bo$$ in drama remix)
