DJ Spinna & BBE Soundsystem present “Strange Games & Funky Things Volume 5"‏ --- LOVELY

The Strange Games… series which began in the summer of 1997, represents the blueprint for modern R&B and rap music. It joins the dots between 70s soul, 80s rare groove and 90s mass market hip hop. This compilation contains a wide variety of styles of tracks, from classic dance-floor fillers as well as lesser known delights. A more accessible diggers delight if you wish with an emphasis on quality track and not just songs worth having for a two second sample.

Conceived by BBE bossman Peter Adarkwah over 14 years ago, this fifth volume is mixed by longterm BBE stalwart, one of the world's best DJ Spinna. Featuring a much more worldly selection than its predecessors - tracks by the multi platinum selling War to Sylvia (Founder of Sugarhill Records) sit side by side with world music underground icons like C.K. Mann and Francisco Aguabella. This volume is the 5th in a series of compilations that appears to have the widest appeal of all BBE’s compilations and proves to be even better by the fact that there is a bonus mixed CD by the one and only DJ Spinna!

Label: BBE Records

Release Date: September 28, 2010

Revolution N°5 - Sick Tricks and Urban Bass

The Sick girls are about combining art with street culture.
Their style is fresh, hot, bubbly and all about the bass.

This exciting compilation - Revolution no 5 boldly proclaims that there have been 4 big revolutions in dance music up until now: Disco, Hip Hop, Techno and Drum & Bass - it's now time for a sound that reflects all that happened before.
A sound with no borders and rules that obey one master only: the bass has to kick ass!
Revolution is a symbol for power and renewal, for political or personal progress.

The Sick Girls represent the fifth revolution, combining elements of all the former styles and bringing it all together to one big cutting edge hybrid state of the art of contemporary dance music. Like as in hyperdub, UK funky, Bmore, California bass.
This record is for all who want to have a look at whats going on in the dance music underground of today. Its the Sick Girls and their special lense.

Chemical Brothers Bootleg !

Next up on Westway is this killer bit of breakbeat bizness from hot new Australian duo Sangers & Ra.
Straight outta Brisbane, the guys are residents at Queensland’s biggest beats night Breaks & Enter and have
rapidly risen to become one of Australia’s most exciting new DJ/production outfits.
Also part of the Adicts promotion team, the guys only started producing a couple of years ago, but have
made waves with official remixes of tracks like Dogtown Clash’s ‘Hole In My Head’ and re-fixes of club
smashes such as ‘Plump Yer Butt’ by the Plump DJs and ‘Swoon’ by the Chemical Brothers. ‘Nasty’ is their
first full release, and Westway are delighted to have the guys on board.
Sangers & Ra have called on celebrated MC SirReal, famed for his work with The Freestylers, for ‘Nasty’.
A sidewinding floor-filler with disco synths and bassy electronic wobble, SirReal’s vocal rides the groove as it

Bag Raiders - New Video + FREE Remix


Chances are if you've stumbled into a club, wobbled at a party, looked into the light at a festival or dawdled along the radio dial in the last 2 years, you've been inadvertently exposed to the Bag Raiders. Now the boys are finally ready to deliver their long overdue and lovingly anticipated debut self-titled album later this year.

A collection of thoughts, ideas and memories, Bag Raiders transcends typical dance and pop boundaries, showcasing the creativity of a band at the forefront of modern production. The album ticks the right boxes for fans new and old, coming correct with sing-a-long choruses, deep-breath anthems, blissful chill and pure dancefloor energy. In short Bag Raiders debut album adds a new dimension in the cluttered and diluted dance world.

Dance Till u Die !!! with Lumiere Electronique!

Another friend of the blog and most important a friend of mine in flesh and bone. EnjoY his latest mixtape rockin hard from start to the last minute. Having shared many dancefloors with him i can give u my full guarantee of total satisfaction : )) DIG!


Illumination, the debut album from Melbourne four-piece Miami Horror is a hazy cocktail of classic AM Radio, late night road trips across the desert and shambolic disco jams. It's been a couple years in the making now but for a limited time only, Pedestrian readers will be able to stream "illumination" in its entirety below. It's remarkably perfect for heralding the coming of Spring and whatnot but we're particularly enamoured with the guest appearances from Melbourne vocalist Kimbra and Alan Palomo aka Neon Indian who appears on no less than three tracks. Listen below...

Illumination hits shelves tomorrow, August 20. Pre-order the limited edition version at JB Hi Fi (with bonus disc of remixes from the best of the local and international circuit including YACHT, Sam La More, Hook N Sling, Baby Monster, Fred Falke and more). Or pre-order on iTunes and get a bonus track.

Simian Mobile Disco is back!!!

“The mix we have done for Fixed is based on how we hope our residency with them in

New York will pan out. Fixed has always been a forum for the deeper and odder end of

disco and techno, but without forgetting that it's still a party. We mixed this live in our

studio, allowing us to throw some extra effects in there and also a bit of the 808 from

time to time.” - Jas (of Simian Mobile Disco)

Simian Mobile Disco

“Nerve Salad”


Defend Music is proud to announce the first release in a new series of mix CDs celebrating New York City’s famed FIXED parties – Simian Mobile Disco Is Fixed. Released on October 12, this marks the first Domestic USA release for the famed British DJ/Production/Remix team.

This mix perfectly represents what you’d expect to hear from Simian Mobile Disco (AKA James Ford and Jas Shaw) at one of their FIXED residency nights - it’s all wondrous techno. There’s no messing around here as the mix launches with the spacey, wobbly, jazz tinged one-two punch of Brain Machine “Eternal Night” and Etienne Jaumet “For Falling Asleep.” Next, Jurek Przezdziecki “Qwerty Poema” and Conrad Schnitzler “Ballet Statique” reveal techno’s beautiful side with divine melodies and flowing beats before Andre Walter “Malphas” and Bam Bam “Where's Your Child?” contrast with tougher and more ominous sounds. It’s the perfect lead into Simian Mobile Disco’s own remix of DJ Hell’s gothic techno track “U Can Dance (feat. Brian Ferry) and Paul Woolford’s rubbery “False Prophet.”

Phillip Sherburne starts off the second half of the disc with his excellent “Salt And Vinegar,” and when paired with the next track, Clement Meyer “Midnight Madness” you’ve got the sound of a plane spinning out of control (good in the context of this mix). Simian Mobile Disco pulls up next with their most recent single, “Nerve Salad,” a full on techno assault with nightmarish sounds weaving in and out. Pantha Du Prince “Behind The Stars” is equally dark, slowing things down before Carl Craig brings back the acid with his remix of Hot Chip’s “One Life Stand.” The mix starts winding down with Chateau Flight’s bouncy electro “Baroque” before the BPMs start freefalling with SND “05:36:58” and Delia Derbyshire’s tripped out and droning “Dreams.”

FIXED was launched in 2004 by DJ’s JDH and Dave P at the Tribeca Grand hotel and the party quickly took off as a result of a forward-thinking booking policy. One week you’d find heavyweight, Berlin-based techno jocks like Ewan Pearson playing with on-the-rise indie

acts such as Little Boots or Friendly Fires the next. To date, blue-chip artists like Erol Alkan, Soulwax, Booka Shade, Justice, Superpitcher, the Klaxons, Peaches, LCD Soundsystem, Mylo, Vitalic, Simian Mobile Disco, The Rapture, Tiefschwarz, M.A.N.D.Y. and many more have all made appearances. The party celebrated its five-year anniversary in November 2009, with Basement Jaxx headlining the night.

Simian Mobile Disco takes the reigns of the first mix in FIXED’s new series embodying what the New York institution’s parties are all about. Simian Mobile Disco’s James Ford and Jas Shaw comment, “Josh and Dave were the first people to put us on in America, and they consistently put on the craziest parties with the best dance music in the United States. We jumped at the chance to do a mix for them, as Fixed is a beacon of hope in a sea of generic bangers. It has a broad, classy music policy and is set to follow in the footsteps of legendary nights such as Trash and Optimo,”

MIXHELL remix of Jamaica’s “Short & Entertaining”‏

‘For the recent Francophiles out there, Jamaica is the band that sounds like Phoenix on and is produced by Xavier de Rosnay of Justice and used to be Poney Poney who once made a song named “Cross the Fader” that shows up in our google alerts almost every day even though it came out almost two years ago. That indicates some kind of hitmaking ability between Jamaica’s Antoine Hilaire and Flo Lyonnet, which is further bolstered by the original version of their new EP title song “Short & Entertaining,” the new Rozan & Schmeltz video for which you can watch above.
This song has grown on us a lot lately and it might be because Igor Cavalera of
Sepultura is slamming the drums in said video. Something about our youth will not allow us to dislike that. Cavalera, in turn, joined his wife Laima under their infamous Mixhell rubric for a brand new remix of the song that sounds little like the original but is equally jamming. You’ll be able to get it along with other remixes by Paul Devro, Das Glow and Goose on the Short & Entertaining EP out August 16th on Cooperative Music. Until then, feel free to ironically or sincerely bang your head to this.’

Oh yesssss! Designer Drugs - Riot (StereoHeroes Remix)

Introducing LOGO - Debut EP "La Vie Moderne" on Kitsune Records + Free Minimix‏



“La Vie Moderne

Kitsuné Records

***Download/Listen to the Free Minimix***

Logo is a what-s-the-point duo. They can’t sing and have nothing to prove. Engaging and impassive, they settle for the sight of modern life: from its fake veneer to its faded wallpaper. They don’t laugh or make fun of this observation. This is why Logo decided to start passive resistance.

Hugues is a student. At university, he is told that with a bit of self-sacrifice, he will be out of reach. But he already knew that. So in order to compensate all this love, at night he reads. More withdrawn from reality, Thomas smiles from time to time and thinks. More in images than in words.

Both a cynical and a playful consumer product, Logo matches perfectly well the market’s requirements since it embodies with dynamism the new design of a world with unchanged values. In the future, only shapes can transform.

So to take part in this global apathy, to make up for this lack of ideals, and to propel their adventure in a contemporary future, they lock themselves up. They settle in a bedroom and plug their material, manipulate small round buttons, press on white or black keys and fiddle with some rhythms with easy to use software. They don’t know each other very well, they met more a less a year ago, but they often play together or compose by email. At 23 years old, they have been through everything, but they haven’t seen anything yet.

They are not interested in fitting in the landscape. Belonging, what’s the point, what for?

They have some past references but let’s say that it’s not intentional. For Logo, conforming to tradition in order to spread one’s good bad taste is a waste of time that electronic music’s immediateness can make up for. Simplicity and logic are Logo’s ephemeral aesthetics’ mammals. The writing is not narrative, the speech does not have a say. Logo does not tell stories.

Things start speeding up when one fine day, Maison Kitsuné’s web navigator comes across The groove is young, the ambition is fun: when the fox sniffs, it raises its nose and its red tail and signs!

And if, as Logo thinks, the entire world is falling apart, “La Vie Moderne” has no reason to be so boring anymore.

The band’s first EP is called La Vie Moderne and features two tracks: “Junocide” and “La Vie Moderne,” both in their original version and in their auto-remix version. The digital version of the EP will also contain remixes by Danton Eeprom, DyE, Gohan and French Fries. It will be released worldwide on August 30th.
