Our favourite Frenchies Noze are back with a new album (Songs on the Rocks, out on Get Physical in April), and despite getting a bit more orchestral and lovey-dovey than the last one....it is still SO on point. Noze somehow manage to cross the boundaries of jazz, techno, big band and smooth ass pop music in a very stylish and flagrant fashion. I am yet to witness the guys live, but can imagine the live show being a hit, something like Gonzales used to be. Hopefully the label is on top of the people doing remix duties for this album, I wait with batied breath to hear what comes out.....here in 320 glory is the first track off of the album.
Noze - L'Inconnu Du Placard

Okay, so you fools probably didnt believe us when we proposed a 'Ghetto House Top Ten' did you? DID YOU? (To be honest, I didnt believe myself). Ghetto House is a name that has been passed around a lot recently, hopefully the people using it know what it means and we can avoid what has happened to Fidget House happening to Ghetto House. I doubt it ever will, seeing as ghetto shit is exactly that, as it usually involves a big black american dude, a couple of busted drum machines and a little pent up frustrated energy, I cant see Craig from Durham churning out the next 'House-O-Matic'...can you?
To be honest, a top ten of this kind of music is a daft idea, there are far too many good tracks that could be included in this list. So here is a pick of the crop, as opposed to a definitive 'best of'......
1. Cajmere - Percolator
2. DJ Deeon - House-O-Matic
3. Rod Lee - Problems
4. Ron Caroll - Walking down the Street
5. The Outhere Brothers - Whip Dat Pussy
6. Paul Johnson - Feel My M.F Bass
7. Mike Dunn - ~Lets Work That Mutha Fucka
8. DJ Funk - House the Groove
9. DJ Slugo - Work It
10. The House Master Boyz and The Rude Boy of House - House Nation

I never really looked into Crystal Castles, they were always simply purveyors of really nice tshirts and maybe a little too 'hype' for me to ever get that excited about. A nice surprise was to be had then, when listening to the album for the first time, I discovered quite a lot of substance behind the style. It seems (alongside nice melodic electronica) 'electroclash' is really not dead at all....
Cop the album here, just dont tell nobody you got it from us okay?

Disco, Disco, Disco....all I hear is Disco. Funny how it all comes around again, all I hear is bandwagon-jumpers now proclaiming that they have always been into disco, how its the only 'real' music and that it never died, only went underground. Yeah, whatever....round here the only word that gets repeated is 'HOUSE'. House music is coming back bitches, whether its new or old....we are bringing it back. No longer a dirty word....end of story.
First up, a track from a group that are heralded as being the forefront runners in the disco revolution....I chose this track because it sounds well like old 90's House.
Hercules and Love Affair - You Belong
Next up is a minimal-tech-funk track, made by Munich made Lutzenkirchen. Wierd drunk noises sit comfortably next to solid beats. A nice track.....
Lutzenkirchen - Drunken Monkey

Dont say we are never good to you....trawling through shitty Baile mp3s is becoming a full time job for us. Here we go again, presenting you with the creme de la creme, yes...they are 128 as per-fucking-usual but they are the best of the bunch. These shits are big enough to bring the roof down.....Montagem gems.

Mowgli is Italian, Italians love pizza....
Juan Maclean constantly makes great music. This shit samples 'Do It Now' by Dubtribe SoundSystem (worse name ever!) and features a nice Nu-disco intro that slowly turns into a little Chicago Piano house thing, it then ends up as some crazy bass heavy acid monster..a journey at 12mins!
Juan Maclean - Happy House
and the original...
Dubtribe Soundsystem - Do It Now

Tocadisco has done an amazing remix of the mighty dub cats that sits somewhere between old garage and electro house- That fella's remixes really are the guilty pleasure of my life.
