Hope all readers had a great Christmas and New Years, and thanks loads for the feedback on the
. Glad You Enjoyed.
Fellow fans of The Mighty Boosh
may know that quote.. 'I go by many names...
' by Julian Barrat
's character Rudi Van DeSarzio
. Ive been loving their new Live DVD
over this Christmas and had quite a little surprise when I saw the guys mug printed on a Speaker Punks
vinyl. Maybe it was a reference to Jimi Hendrix
, and the characters influence.. but maybe (and its a long shot
) it was a link to that quote and how it applies to the producer. Joshua Harvey
definetly goes by many names, and now he's branched his Speaker Junk
label off to another sub-label Speaker Punk
. It seems this is an outlet for him and partner Trevor Loveys
to put out some of their white label remixes. Great idea I say, as I just can't get enough of their productions. They slipped underneath my radar too, with the second release out way back in July. More info on the releases can be found here, and they were available at Juno & Phonica.
Goin by other names, we expect to see a lot more of Mr Harvey this year, with Voodoo Chilli
getting a soon re-release on Dubsided
, as Speaker Junk
with a forth coming Dubsided
release, and in his Count Of Monte Cristal
make up with Sinden
putting out a release on Dave Taylor's Counterfeet
Imprint. Im not sure if this track is definetly on it, but The Count Of Monte Cristal & Sinden EP will be out this year on Counterfeet.
Anyone in London this weekend should definetly go and see this genius in action @ The Lock Tavern
, Camden for BLOGGERS DELIGHT
on the 14th. Herve
himself will be DJing as well as the resident Skull Juice DJs
and Casper C (Fluokids)
Really wanted to go to this one.. huge fan of Herve, and would be great to finally meet Casper and the Skull Juice lads. but i can't get the time off work now.. and the train ticket prices have got even MORE! expensive this new year.
Back to some MP3 goodies, and I know Arctic Monkeys
are a bit 2006... but this remix has only just found its way onto my computer. Their debut album was a sure music highlight of 2006 for many and recording trio Killahurtz
have put on the Monkey's dancing shoes and thrown them on the dancefloor with this hot guitar driven track. Not sure where the hell this is available to buy, if it is at all.. but if I knew I would be advertising it!
Sticking with the indie sound now, and you probably know that Editors had a remix EP out on iTunes a few weeks back. Well it was only the US iTunes actually and this EP hasnt found its way to the UK store yet. Dont know why but edbanging producer SebastiAn did a remix of their single 'Camera'. I found it a little strange sounding at first.. but it really does grow on you. Editors' Remixes EP is out now on the US iTunes store, and hopefully soon here in the UK too.
Finally one of my favourite tracks from 2006 was Switch's remix of 'Bump' by Spank Rock
. Well here's another remix by Mad Cap Texans Best Fwends
. They used different samples to what Taylor used opting for the lead vocal and gameboy synths and it results in a totally unique remix, and shows even more talent from this crazy band. This track is available with the original and Switch remix on a limited 12" from Big Dada.
