DFA compilations are some of the few label-selected compilation packages that still manage to get me excited. James Murphy and Tim Goldsworthy always unearth some really fascinating records which never disappoint.

On Nobody Knows Anything we're treated to another eclectic selection focussing on Krautrock, Italo Disco, Electro, Chicago House and Detroit Techno.

Although we were all secretly hoping that UK new-ravers (is that term still alive?) Klaxons would do their sophomore record with Dr Dre like they'd always wanted, the band have been busy working on a follow up to Myths Of The Near Future with the always trusty James Ford of Simian Mobile Disco.
Ford gave an update on the album's progress, and while it's nothing if not brief, I know there's a bunch of people out there that got Gravity's Rainbow tattooed on their arm/hip/buttock. And didn't regret it. This is for you.
"I think they're still trying to push forward so I don't think it's going to sound too much like the last record. They're trying to keep it melodic and vocal because that's one of their great strong points. It's going to be really exciting.
Ford also dropped some hints about a new SMD record, which he's hoping to have out by the year's end.
""We've already done a track with Gruff Rhys from the Super Furry Animals, which is great, and one with Beth Ditto from The Gossip. It's looking good so far."
Like Simian Mobile Disco? Like running and stuff? I think your two worlds just collided. Boom! Splak!
The SMD boys are following in the footsteps of LCD Soundsystem, A-Trak and Cassius and hooking up with the sportswear giant for the next instalment in Nike's "Run" series, where producers and musicians cook up what is essentially their own exercise mixtape.
Now you can sweat it out to SMD every day! Yay!
After pummelling fans the world over with their trademark brand of disco-distortion on last year's Cross LP, it would seem as though Ed Banger princes Justice are gearing up to shoot out another dose of dancefloor magic. Don't get too excited, it's not the follow-up record you were hoping for, instead a live album/DVD of their relentless touring from 2k7. Appropriately, it's called A Cross The Universe.
Here's the 411 from Justice.
We're currently working on the booklet for our next release,
A CROSS THE UNIVERSE (documentary/live) and would like it to be made only of images provided by fans (though if you hate justice but have good material it's OK).
Any fun (or dramatic) picture, image, or art related to justice ?

So-Me, Gaspard & Xavier.

We all know † will probably end up a best seller, but did you know our French home boys made most of it GarageBand? We didn't, well that was until we read Pitchfork's latest interview with the duo.
"A lot of people think it's bullshit when we say we use GarageBand, but it's actually an amazing tool."
Whilst digging up some juice on the relationship between GarageBand and Pedro's pair I came across an interview with remix mag where Pitchfork's q's stem from.
"We used to work with hardware and synths for the previous singles, but for the album we mainly used software, particularly Cubase and GarageBand." Gaspy told remix mag. Before Xavier went on to say; "We love the flexibility and the possibilities offered by software. A lot of people say that software is shit because it doesn't sound like analog-hardware stuff. I think the fact that it doesn't sound like analog gear — but something else entirely — is why we like to use it."
But the part we <3>
Rimini is the perfect artist to join Delicious Gutter. Already this summer Rimini has been blowing minds with his remix of the Young MC classic "Bust A Move". Released as a single from for Delicious Vinyl's RMXXOLOGY album, it prompted datatransmission.co.uk to froth: “Don Rimini's remix of Bust A Move is nothing short of a dancefloor monster!"
Did someone say dancefloor monster? Enter the KICK'N RUN EP: "Rave On" chants ""We've come to kick your ass!" with the purposeful brutality of an Ultimate Fighting Championship punch-out and the joyous butt-bumping of a sweaty French discotheque. “Hools” is a hooligan-thrashin', rave-tent-trashin' rush fit for both an intimate club crowd and huge summer festivals. “Nervous Breakdown" is a funky crack-up in audio form. And “Ohow?" with it front-burner synthesizers and four-on-the-floor beat, is simply undeniable.
Frisky Frenchman Don Rimini (aka Xavier Gassemann) has been lighting up the ghetto clubs of Paris since he was a teenager with sweaty-assed DJ sets combining the best of hip-hop, electro, and upstart rock'n'roll. Rimini’s infamous track "Let Me Back Up" has been a fixture in DJ sets by Busy P, MSTRKRFT, 2 Many DJs, Digitalism, Tiga, A-Trak, Aaron LaCrate, and Diplo among others.
Delicious Gutter — the new imprint of venerable rap label Delicious Vinyl — is masterminded by Baltimore club king Aaraon LaCrate and West Coast Boss Rick Ross. All parties involved are devoted to delivering real ill dirt. So is Don Rimini's KICK'N RUN EP.
