Let’s just ignore the elephant in the room and pretend that I’ve been good this summer and posted more than once in 2 months. Right, shall we? These last few months have probably been the most frustrating, heartbreaking, but at the same time exciting, enlightening, I-wouldn’t-change-a-thing period. I’ve met some amaaazing people, gotten closer to more awesome friends, and lost some relationships that had run their courses. The things I’ve seen, Dear God the things I’ve heard… well let’s just focus on some of the great tracks that I’ve heard.
Summer Highlight: FUJI ROCK. All things Fuji Rock really. The artists, the friendly energy, the FOOD, goshdarnit even the rain and mud! Not a bad way to pop a rock festival virgin’s cherry. Steve Aoki, Tensnake, Digitalism, need I say more?
SUMMER SONIC was a bit of a disappointment after the high of Fuji but hey, dancing to The Village People on a beach with people equally as trashed as you makes for some epic pictures. Ha!
So first up, Fake Blood just today released his long-awaited Deep Red EP. The man can do no wrong with his hands and is sure to make a lot of you electro heads very, very, ahhhhhhh happy. Get ready for a massive earection. Giggity.
Deep Red EP Teaser
I predict the Deep Red track (like Mars, Fix your Accent, I Think I like it) will be played on loop on many a iPod and dance floor. You’ve heard the teaser, now you can grab it at:
Beatport or Juno Download. Clean up in aisle 8 please.
I’ve had my eye on Hyper Crush for a while now and should be ashamed that I haven’t written about them before. They released a new banger “Flip the Switch” on their Free Song Fridays earlier this summer. I’ve gotten a great response when I’ve used this remix in my set. Fist pump this!
Duck Sauce, Duck Sauce, my kingdom for some Duck Sauce. Much like the first time I heard Barbra Streisand, I thought “Whatthecuss?” when I first listened to “Big Bad Wolf.” But when it got to the woooo-ooo hook, I cracked up and therefore was sold. A far cry from their disco bangers but sick nonetheless.
Well look at that, three posts just this week alone. I thought it’d be a challenge to update weekly, but this blog thing just proves that there’s too much good music out there that has to be shared. And… that I talk too much.
It’s Friday night Tokyoites! Need I say more?
It’s no secret that I absolutely adore Fake Blood aka Touche’ aka Theo Keating. His music runs through my veins, and I would give my kingdom just to see him here in Tokyo (VIP no less). He cracks me up with his tweets, he enjoys his winter sports, and he’s known to go ape-cuss on anyone leaking his music. A match made in heaven methinks. Anyways, I first heard “Medieval” while watching one of his sets for Halloween on Youtube and have been eagerly awaiting it’s release. It’s not released yet, this is just the first showing of his new EP, only a 320 rip from the full mix. Giggity.
Fake Blood – Medieval
So apparently people didn’t like seeing ginger kids being executed in M.I.A’s “Born Free” video. But Ms. /\/\ /\ Y /\ has dropped another digital release which has been given the title Internet Connection (The Remixes). Check out two of the four remixes below:
M.I.A – Internet Connection (Buraka Som Sistema remix)
Dang, it’s already 9.30pm so that’s all for now, see you at “Sniff Sniff” tonight! x
