Detroit's Claude VonStroke
had a a huge hit last year with his fame finding track 'The Whistler' from his debut LP 'Beware Of The Bird'. 2007 sees a new package of remixes of this house anthem on his own US label Dirtybird Records
, roping in DJ Assault
, Luca Agnelli
, Jesse Rose
to perform surgery on the track. Those in the know of DJ Assault
can expect another Detroit flavoured booty bass rework, while Jesse Rose
has worshiped the original version by hanging on to the deep house vibe re-editing the track and adding some his fidget expertise. Diplo
definitely deserves the A1 side here though with his awesome Baltimore stylings that gives 'The Whistler' new life. Remixes of 'The Whistler' is out know on Dirtybird Records and available to buy now @ Juno and Phonica.
More deep tech house now from UK label Odori
's latest signings The Bald & The Beautiful
. No Britney Spears
hasn't got into house producing, these have actually got talent (I was gonna post a picture, but that bald girl really creeps me out now..
) The 'Bacon Champers EP' by The Bald & The Beautiful
has some very well produced tracks that reminds me of some deep house on Derrick Carter
& Luke Solomon
Record Label, and some of Dave Taylor
's earlier Solid Groove
productions, keeping it deep and very technical. The 'Bacon Chambers EP' by The Bald & The Beautiful is out now on Odori and available to buy @ Juno and Phonica.
More Ed Banger
already right now as we all carry on getting excited for their upcoming releases. I was a little disappointed, (Heavy on the little! because its such an awesome compilation!
) but it would have been great to hear more from Mr Oizo
on the CD. His productions are always so crazy yet technically immaculate, and I always can't wait to hear more from him. When his Ed Banger
debut finally drops I'm sure he'll please everyone and if single 'Patrick122' is anything to go by, Id say its pretty much satisfaction guaranteed: Disco warped into a wicked Oizo odyssey!. Below is a sample of more of what's yet to drop on the mighty Ed Banger
Hot on the tail of their previous project remixing Punks Jump
(Coming soon on Kitsune! Yeah!
) Matt Waites
and Pete Cage
have done yet another fine job remixing the latest Bent
single. Id say their remix of 'Waiting For You' goes in the same channel as their PJU
remix, as they are very comparable in style and quality with equal electro anthemic stylings. 'Waiting For You' by Bent is out now on Godlike & Electric records with remixes from Nightmoves, Danny Howells & Mr B, and is available to buy now on Juno.
I was raving on about Leeds based I Can Count
Music a few weeks back when they kindly sent me a copy of their latest CD compilation. Something that heavily caught my ears was the Gameboy-pop music of David E. Sugar
2006 Diesel U-Music
finalist. Ok he lost to Duke Dumont
, a worthy adversary, and don't let that deter you (I mean look at that setup from 2004 up in that pic!
) because he's produced a new Klaxons
remix to add to the pile. Using his own trademarked beats and bleeps hes produced a very nice bouncy version of 'Golden Skans'.
