Mix Monday 4

On the weekend a few of the team were privledged to catch the French bearded man known as Breakbot. Looking like jesus's stlightly scraggy younger brother, this man came ready and prepared for his crowd.
We waited in anticipation to see what the disco deft dude would play. He was playing at Candy's, a club well know for its heavy, dirty, deep, noise/electro. Not typical to what Breakbot is known for as a producer. The supporting DJ's were on there game warming up the quickly filling club with some smoother disco tunes like my current fav Kilometer (A-Trak Remix).
When Breakbot hit the stage at 1am with his Sony Vaio laptop and Behringer BCR2000 (same midi controller Daft Punk use!) the crowd was clearly ready and expectant. He started off smoothly and rolled into the style his all too well known for playing tunes like Cut Dick by Mr Oizo and quite a few of his own productions and remixes. He carried on playing with that style for the first 40 mins or so. Then the tempo slowly and creatively began to lift as he started to drop some heavier electro style tunes. This careful increase in energy continued to lift as did the crowd, lapping up every moment of it. Then for the last half hour it had reached at point where you were hearing the stuff Candy's is known for. Tracks like Raven, Bounce (A-Trak Remix), Shake It Down, Momy, Focker (Boy's Noize Remix) and even a golden oldy The Bomb by The Bucketheads were all being mixed flawlessly (not hard using Ableton). I would say it's easily one of the best sets I've seen in 09 so far. More than anything Breakbot did a superb job of mixing what people wanted to hear but also lifting the intensity incrimentally and appropriately over the hour and half set.

This mix is a shorter disco mix he did a couple weeks back. This mix is floating around on the internet without a tracklist so I've done my best (with a lil help) to provide you with one. Theres still some gaps and possibly a few errors. Anyone who can help fill these please do. Now go get ya disco on

Playing Hard to Get!!!!

I have been away for a week, and in that week have spent about 1 hour listening to music. When I got back the first email I opened was a story about what happened to the princess of bottle service culture herself, Miss Paris Hilton, was publicly humiliated by Swedish house mafia man Steve Angello in move that will leave DJs around the world cheering his name till the end of time.

The LA-based diva turned up at the 1OAK party at Angello’s showcase at WMC on Thursday night/Friday morning, and found his music “was not even danceable and was frankly giving me a migraine.”

Hilton asked one of her friends who runs the hotel to change the music and the manager said between emphatic kisses of her ass, “I’ll lead you up to the DJ booth and he’ll play whatever you want.”

The age old battle between ignorant, over-privileged wannabes, and DJs trying to do their best, just went front and centre.

Angello claims Hilton repeatedly asked him to play hip hop. Hilton claims she only asked him to play Bob Sinclar or Daft Punk.

This led to a big fight. Hilton’s friends and her entourage got a kicking for apparently slapping Steve Angello.

Angello on his Twitter said: “for someone who claims to make records...dont come into a booth and ask me to play hip hop and then have your doorman slap me. or at least if you wanna do that.....dont moan about it when we all kicked off. dont be so fucking rude.”

Hilton’s response on her Myspace blog portrays her ignorance and self-importance in the ugly light of day.

“The DJ (I don’t even know his name cause he sucks so bad) was playing the worst music ever!,” she says. “I think he was jealous cause Bob Sinclair is a far better DJ then this guy by about a million times.

“He was so unbelievably rude and all because I asked to play one good song. Then out of nowhere his bodyguard (don’t ask me why he has a bodyguard, like he really needs one. Ha) pushed me really hard, that’s when my boyfriend, like my knight in shining armor, stepped in and told the guy to keep his hands off of me. Then all hell broke loose, it was like something out of a fight movie, it was so frightening.”

whatever happened, Hilton thought her fame granted her the right to use Steve Angello as her monkey DJ for the night. Steve was just being a sick cunt!

Tis Blitz!

Image Hosted by

NYC Alt-rockers Yeah Yeah Yeahs are back with another powerful arrangement of songs from their third album entitled It's Blitz.

It has been three long years since their highly successful Show Your Bones (2006) was released and now they're are back with a brighter, dancier album. It's Blitz features the background use of analogue synth pads of anorexic guitarist/keyboardist Nick Zinner which in turn compliments the ever so unique vocals of one of the best leading females in music, Karen O.

This is really an album you can dance to no matter what venue you're occupying. Put on your dancing pants,push the indie kids across the room, observe the Karen O wannabes with the blunt-black fringes and try and gather why it was so cool to be so, so skinny - then turn the volume up when you get to 'Dragon Queen'.

Although it lacks the aggression and hi-voltage rock from Show Your Bones it has no problem upholding the amazing, punk-intense energy for a three piece band. The opening track 'Zero' was first played on radio by our very own Zan Rowe (Triple J) and is probably the best example of the new direction of the band and its art. Less rock, more dance.

In 2006, I was lucky enough to catch these guys live at the Enmore Theatre. Not many bands could honestly front up to these guys in a live arena and pull off what they can. It's Blitz is a rocking album with great layering and plenty of juice for your love muscles.

Check out these two tracks in particular. Listen to them loud... very loud

One of the highlights of last year’s Parklife was XXXChange – a quarter of the omnipresent Spank Rock. Alex ‘XXXChange’ Epton has his fingers in multiple musical pies, yet it is his solo releases that have garnered him much publicity in the last couple of years. He embraces an incredibly diverse palette across his remixes, and as a result can be a little hit and miss for my liking. A relative newy of his is a Virgins remix – certainly dancefloor friendly, but not quite my cup o’ tea (do people still say that?).

Rich Girls (XXXChange Remix) - The Virgins

But Will, I hear you ask, does this XXXChange character have any gold up his sleeve? Abso-bloody-exactly he does. So let’s get down to it: my real reason for bringing him up is so I can remind you all how brilliant his Thom Yorke remix is. And there’s a bit of the artist formerly known as Santogold (now Santigold) below for you all.

The Eraser (XXXChange Remix) - Thom Yorke

L.E.S. Artistes (XXXChange Remix) - Santogold

And hey, who was it that said blogs have to be cohesive? He was probably a dirty commy anyway. Here’s a little home grown gem I dug up in my iTunes – a bit of Juggernauts/Bag Raiders love. 2:46 anyone? Hmm? Yeah? No one?

I’m so lonely.

Its here, this is a powerful deep track, Sebastian Ingrosso is finally back with one of the strongest releases for 2009 - "Laktos". With laktos Sebastian really takes you on a ride. More of a progressive sound with rolling basslines and sound effects that come from everywhere, to summarise, Laktos really digs into your mind, its inspiring, it gives you goosebumps. There are so many elements running through it.

I first heard it on 'In New Music We Trust' when Pete Tong was interviewing Seb. apart from this I think he has alot more projects on the way, one with Kid Sister I can recall.

I also heard it at future festival randwick, where it sounded sick. And a friend in Brisbane said they put MGMT-kids through it.

Sunglasses - Tiga & Ksubi

Tiga likes sunglasses. He even wears them at night, he made a song about it. Infact, he likes them so much that he and the boys at Ksubi have teamed up to make a range of sunnies about to drop for the northern hemisphere's spring/summer. To learn more read here

Here's a track Corey Hart made, about sunglasses.

Mix Monday 2


This week I've got a set from the red headed UK fidget master Boy 8-Bit. This guy emerged into the dance scene big time roughly a year ago and has been producing/remixing some unique and sometimes underated fidget style elctro slugs. Boy 8-Bit happens to one of my favourite artists. He puts a subtle and different touch on tracks and when a lot of artists go one way he often goes the other. This mix was recorded last time he was in Australia (Oct 2008) when he played in Melbourne at the infamous Prince. It consists of a large amount of his own work with a few others thrown in, some very old, some quite new and a couple you'd never expect.

Mediafire: Live In Melbourne (Oct '08) - Boy 8-Bit


1. Suspense Is Killing Me - Boy 8-Bit
2. What (Boy 8-Bit Remix) - Jack Beats
3. Like Knives (Switch Remix) - The Fashion
4. What Up Ya'll - Crookers
5. Township Funk (Boy 8-Bit Remix) - DJ Mujava

Playing Hard to Get!!!!


After hearing a rip before I went out. Subsequently hearing it twice when I was out, from Bart B more followed by Ajax. I thought searching it would be easy. NOPE, struggled but did find it!

Bart B More


Last night I had the opportunity to see Bart B More, the Holland based dj/producer, play a two hour set. It was the first of his Australian Tour and he can rest assure that not only do the kids down here love his music, he can work a crowd. He played a two hour set which consisted of two somewhat different halves.
You could tell when he hit the stage he was a little nervous, understandably, playing in a country you never have before and not knowing what to expect. The first hour of his set was very housey and included a range of his orginal mixes and also remix work. Then in the second hour after he'd loosened up and got an understanding of the crowd he started playing more electro house and fidget rave type dance music dropping tunes like; AA 24/7 - Dance Area, Raven - Proxy and the new bomb Pump Repeat (Mowgli Remix (keep an eye for this one)).
I've decided to provide you with a variety of tracks as Bart B More's work has a vast amount of variety.
First is the track which got me hooked on the guy. His amazing and ever so catchy remix of Ron Carroll's 'Walking Down The Street'. Get ya Nikes on!

Mediafire: Walking Down The Street (Bart B More Remix) - Ron Carroll

Next up are a couple of the rarer bootlegs. First is the bootleg of his Larry Tee - I Love You remix with Carmina Burana. I first heard this in Steve Aoki's Essential Mix, it opened with this powerful track and I was blown away.
To follow this is a bootleg by the Candian boys VNDLSM of Bart's Killing It (which was one of the tracks which put him on the map) and A Bit Patchy.

Mediafire: I Love U (Bart B More "Carmina Burana" Remix) - Larry Tee

Mediafire: Killing It Patchy (VNDLSM Bootleg) -Bart B More/Eric Prydz/Switch

Lastly, two of his better remixes. One new, one not so new. The newer of the two is his recent remix of Diplo's Wassup feat Rye Rye. Secondly, the unmistakable Bart B More sound in Touch Me.

Mediafire: Wassup (Bart B More Remix) - Dilpo

Mediafire: Touch Me(Bart B More Remix) - Bingo Players Vs. Chocolate Puma

To Russia for Proxy 2009


Proxy is from the cold, which may be the reason why he produces such high heated tracks. He falls under the Montreal based Turbo Recordings, established by Tiga.
Before electro/tech house, Proxy produced Russian hip/hop, which was before he got picked up by Turbo. But aren't we are all glad he changed his ways?

Everyone knows about Proxy with Decoy, Destroy, Dance in the Dark, 40 Seconds and more recently Raven which gets dropped like hot potatoes.

However a new year has come about and will this year be the year of Proxy? His myspace says his doing studio work at the moment. He is creating a buzz through the forums and blogging world, all looped in with radio BBC throwing down samples of what Proxy is hiding.

Tiga - What You Need (Proxy Remix) - when he played Melbourne(Baked not fried)
Proxy- Who Are You? (on "In new djs we trust" mix, sounds absolutely insane)// Turbo
Proxy- Indian Film
Download here is a rough sample
Proxy- Think First opening Kissy Sellout's Dec 19th mix // Turbo
Proxy- Prodigy remix
Proxy - Cooper// Turbo
Proxy - Quad Damage (Heavy Metal Edit)
The Proxy - Predator
Download here very very rough sample

Tiga-what you need(proxy remix)is insane, one fan said he would punch a baby in the head to have it. Some are already signed by Turbo which is an indicator to the 2009 Album.

For fun and games:
Speedyshare: Raven - Proxy

P.s. Keep an eye out for the Crookers remix of this beast, coming shortly...
Now, get your Rave On and Proxy Bitches!

Look who's back

If you have not been informed on one of the hottest topics in entertainment this week then have a look at this.

King of Pop, Michael Jackson had announced that he will be residing at the o2 Arena in London until February 2010. Yes, it is true ladies and gentleman, the wacked out, spaced out genius of pop music will be doing 50 shows beginning this July. If you want to have a laugh watch the press conference where he made the announcement.

Whilst it is easy to defame the 50 year-old life of the man sporting a new chin, he was arguably the best performer/entertainer of the 20th century. To get your head around it in a couple of sentences: 750 million unit sales world wide and 13 Grammys - not to mention 8 were win in one night! He still holds the record for highest selling album of all time being the 1983 release, Thriller.

The asking ticket price is yet to be announced although we can bank on something ludicrous considering the amount of debt the toddler-toucher is in. I'll ask, would you pay to see him today? If so, how much? One of Motown's earliest and greatest stars may be lip syncing but is sure to boggle minds with his dancing abilities.

Rolling on from Motown, the label has just released their 50th Anniversary box set which is worth a listen to. Listen closely and you'll probably here a few tunes that are getting some air play out at a few happening venues at the moment. Here are a couple of my favourites from the collection. Enjoy....

Probably one of my favourite bots, Breakbot, is in Sydney on the 21st of this month, and to celebrate his arrival I thought I’d share some of his more obscure tracks with all you Staying Sick readers. Both of you. (Hey, we're still young.)

As the only prerequisite for making electronic music these days seems to be a MacBook and a douchey haircut, Breakbot avoids this trend by displaying some rare traits for the genre: musicianship, individuality, and some French flair. Well, perhaps the French bit isn’t that rare. I’m sure you’ve all heard Summerparty and his Van She & Sneaky Sound System remixes, and if you haven’t, get on it. So here are some less known gems; the first of which is a DatA remix that takes a while to warm up, but at 1:40 really hits its stride.

Aerius Light (Breakbot's Rework) - DatA

Next up is a Pacific! remix that stays chilled, but mixes a few nice ambient and vocoded elements. Also below is his remix of Fatlip- a bit better known, but really showcases the individuality I was talking about before. How cool are the percussion and rainforest effects? Don’t get to say that about electronic music every day.

Runaway to Elsewhere (Breakbot Mix) - Pacific!

White Boy


It's time to listen to...Whitest Boy Alive's recently released follow-up album, Rules. These Berlin-based masters of contemporary minimal pop have again been able to pleasure my ear drums with this new 11-track LP. 

I was lucky enough to see these guys live (accidentally, of course) back in London 2007.  This band was practically unknown to anyone outside of the German indie scene - although Erlend Oye may sound familiar to some...Kings of Convenience anyone? It was at the Astoria in London where they supported Shoreditch kids New Young Pony Club. It was then when I fell into a musically based homoerotic love for these four dudes. Yes,  I may have got a little excited but you must be curious now, right? The minute they jammed out to the tracks from the debut album Dreams (2007) I was totally inspired and in in awe of these guys and how they delivered a danceable, jazz-groove atmosphere...all without digital equipment! How rare is that these days? And boy are they proud of that - it wasn't rare to here Erlend scream out during a jam "Look! No Computers!"

Rules delivers nothing less than Dreams.
As lead singer Erlend Oye continues to cantillate soothing vocals, the funky rooted bass lines of Marcin Oz delivers a page out of the 'Miles Davis Textbook of Cool'. The band is again proving to be far more than an "Indie Pop" band and is moving towards a more sophisticated, mature sounding bunch of accomplished, intelligent musicians with two very well produced albums under their belts. Check out tracks: "Keep a Secret", "1517" and "Island"

Future Music 2009 Swedish Duo@Randwick

Sebastian Ingrosso and Steve Angello have just travelled through oz for the Future Music festival rounds. Ingrosso was my most anticipated, as i was listening to BBC radio a week before when he started to reveal his newly inspired number called 'Laktos' which is due out soon on the refune label.

Rumors spread quickely suggesting the duo would be playing separately but only amateurs would think that. The duo played a solid set, really digging deep. Everything from Pjanno to oldschool Dj Jean (which went off).

The crowd was pumped and the boys let them know about it.
I decided to take a brief of what went down.

Stylish Eye


Style Of Eye, hailing from Stockholm, Sweden is a relatively unknown DJ/producer down in the land of Oz. A couple weeks back I saw Tommy Trash play a set and he dropped an oldy but a goody that reminded me of this minimal tech/house producer. The track was The Prophet and although I'm pretty sure no one in the club knewn what it was, everyone loved it. The track probably falls into the category of minimal tech and has this eerie feel to it. After hearing the tune I went home and haven't stopped listening to it since. This was the follow up to his EP 'The Big Kazoo'. Since then his released a few more tracks including Clown and Girls which I've both included. His sound only seems to be developing and getting better as he explores the genres of techno to house through raw percussion and minimal, floaty melodies and weird noises. Keep an Eye out for more of this mystery man...

No Ever Really Dies (We're Back!)


Ok, I know its been a while but 'staying sick' is back and for good this time. Regular posts of a vast variety of music and other sweet shtuff is about to take off. You wait and see...
So, last night I went to the N*E*R*D* show in Sydney. Grandmaster Flash was supporting and the whole evening was a high enery frenzy of Hip Hop madness. Flash, who was the first person to use a turntable as an instrument (ever), definately knows how to get a crowd going. Any supporting act that can get 7,500 people bouncing simultaneously has my respect. He played songs like California Party to Seven Nations Army to KRS.
Then came N*E*R*D*. Now I have always been a huge fan of Pharrell, The Neptunes and N*E*R*D* and to have to the chance to catch them live was surreal. The crowd involvment they carried on from Flash only built and intensified.
Ive decided to share a couple of what I think are the better remixes of stuff from their most recent album, Seeing Sounds.
First is a remix of the very popular Everyone Nose. Listen to the bass in this track!(especially at 2:17) And then Ive posted a remix of a less played/known track called Anti-Matter. This is a complex and different remix by a local boy Destroy Disco.
