Sometimes having too many collaborators on one track can backfire and result in (for lack of better terminology) a big fat turd. Conversely, these types of collaborations can also result in absolute gold. Such is the case on what is surely one of the best pop songs of 2010: “Somebody to Love Me” by Mark Ronson & The Business Intl. Written by Jake Shears (Scissor Sisters), Cathy Dennis & Anthony Rossomando (Dirty Pretty Things/Klaxons) and featuring vocals by dream duo Boy George and Andrew Wyatt (Miike Snow), “Somebody to Love Me” is pop perfection.

Today’s post really has a little bit of it all.
•DJ Sneak- Sourthern Girl (12th planet & Flinch Remix)
New remix off DJ Sneak’s new release by Scion. Another successful remix by this tag team remix team. Definitely highly recommended.
•Yolanda Be Cool & Dcup- We No Speak Americano (High Rankin’s Bait Wobble Remix)
“Bored of a morning i decided to ask Twitter what i should do a cheeky bootleg of to give away for chuckles. Turns out they wanted a mix of No Speak Americano so i only went and bloody did one. Some people didnt quite get the joke but as i do so like to say, fuck um if they can’t take a joke. Here it is, enjoy “– straight from High Rankin’s twitter. Resulting remix actually is good. First and only dubstep mix I have heard of this song and I like it.
•Congorock-Babylon (Fare Soldi – Babbylorso Remix) *thanks to our friends @ Deathelectro
Nice disco twist to one of the biggest songs of the year. Fare Soldi is one of my favorite italian production duo’s out there. Definitely check out more of their stuff on their myspace if you have not already. Also deathelectro has an interview with them up now, go check that as well!
•Aniki Ft. Whiskey Pete- Put On My Raving Kicks (Cold Blank Remix)
Another great remix from the LA based production duo Cold Blank. Check it out asap.

Every Saturday for the past few months, the good folks at OVERTHROW and EMBRACE have teamed together with Whiteroom and brought in acts such as Rusko, AC Slater, D.I.M., Drop The Lime, Mixhell, Bassnectar, Klever, Deathface, and Craze. This week Congorock comes to our concrete jungle and will set off your eardrums with a labyrinth of tropical dance tunes. His newest single ‘Babylon’ is by far one of the best tracks I’ve heard all year and will be released on Fools Gold sometime soon. Mention OVERTHROW at the door this Saturday for reduced admission. Doors open at 11. (Like always, I’ll be playing before and after)
