Oy oy oy oy oy! Time for my first round of The Dirt and this time I am pairing up with my dear friend from down under, Andrew aka Ubbs from Stoney Roads. I’m sure you’re all aware of the Australian music blog so it’s truly our/my pleasure to have him on board to throw down some tracks for you lot. Feeling very, very UK with this one, be it with British producers or simply the UK vibe. Enjoy.
Lemonade – Neptune (Sinjin Hawke Remix)
Ever since I became completely and unforgettably in love with Girl Unit’s “Wut” I’ve been intrinsically attracted to synth-heavy hip hop beats with floaty pitched-up vocals… it’s amazing how far that direction can be taken & I’ve definitely been enjoying what Sinjin Hawke did with this remix.
Lockah – The Sour Drink From The Ocean
Mad Decent’s side label Jeffree’s has been an honorable gesture from the label in consistently releasing free music, with a steady flow of releases that have managed to have some major impact in the scene (Total Recall, Express Yourself, Harlem Shake, Ima Read, etc). This track, from a Scottish producer well on his way to association with the likes of Hudson Mohawke, etc, is my favorite from the EP and a solid track to join the Jeffree’s roster.
MA Beat! – Jail Bait (We Sink’s Grog Blossom Remix)
Only just recently caught on to Greece’s talented duo We Sink, think this is definitely one of my favorite remixes they’ve done. If you’re into the all-trendy Disclosure, you’ll fancy these lads as well.
Machinedrum & FaltyDL – Give In 2
Really into Machinedrum‘s rattling and fast-paced take on whatever house/garage blend it is he’s doing, and FaltyDL is a pretty solid weirdo in my opinion, so a guaranteed “like” for me on this collab effort.
Luvian Sound – Valley Girl
I don’t even know how I stumbled across this one, frankly this is the first I’ve heard from Luvian Sound (or is it just Luvian?) as well but this track is lovely. Soft and melodic, love the slight guitar bits and crinkly white noise. Looking forward to more from this young buck.
!!! BONUS !!!! Destiny’s Child – Say My Name (Cyril Hahn Remix)
Holy F*ck. Just got told to listen to Cyril Hahn’s take on one of undoubtedly one of the greatest songs of all time and it’s goooooooold. So utterly groovy. Pressing repeat. Again and again. With the massive number of plays on his remixes on YouTube… I’d watch out for this kid…
Chic – Everybody Dance (Zimmer Rework)
Who doesn’t love an edit? and one of Chic? Perfect dancefloor filler for the oldies!
Passion Pit – Take A Walk (Sinden Remix)
Solid effort from Sinden who rarely disappoints. Very much fancy his new track with Elizabeth Rose as well.
Erika Spring – Happy At Your Gate (Aeroplane Remix)
Very impressed with the direction Vito has taken Aeroplane since he flew solo (bad pun). This one’s love-ly.
Boards of Canada – Untitled (Machinedrum Edit)
Apparently Machinedrum found a song only ever once played live from Boards of Canada, bootlegged and re-did it himself, adding his own edit onto it. Pretty cool, eh?
Clubfeet – City of Light (Softwar Remix)
Cosmic disco warriors Softwar have re-licked Melbourne kids Clubfeet and their new jam “City Of Light”. Winding down the dial the two have lathered on a healthy wash of dopamine and easy-beat drums for a here-comes-summer sort of deal.
