2009 Track reports

2009 has seen evolution in many fields, including the above new 27" Imac, David Guetta also has had a career changing year.

With the Oz summer starting to climb in temperature, a few personal around the world are climbing harder. Just wanted to acknowledge the latest poll around the world. David Guetta closed at Number 3 in Dj polls. With a massive year he got an album out, 'One Love', also collaborated with the biggest including kelly Rowland, Akon and The Black Eyed Peas. Why he did it, as he has most of Europe under his wing already. The next frontier is obviously the urban hip hop culture in the US. Tying the electronic and urban culture s together seems impossible but the man for the task, is Guetta himself.

He seems like a pop queen himself but Guetta himself knows talent when he sees it. Mentioning the Dutch Afrojack as the 2009 breakthrough DJ/Producer and stating James Zabiela as the most underrated Dj in the world. Some people take his stuff the wrong way, purely because of the medium being used to sample his stuff, the radio. I hear people saying Sexy Bitch or etc. But if you jump onto itunes and check out the rest of his new album, you can still hear his roots, its like Joachim and Guetta at Redlight festival 2007 all over again.

Guetta has got a spot at Future Music 2009 and as its already on its third release, some must be attending to hear sexy bitch.

Mix Monday 33

Erol Alkan is one talented musician. He just came out to Australia for the first time and opened many Aussies eyes to what Europe has been salivating over for almost a decade. What makes this man so successful and has helped him acquire a cult following is his true and devoted passion for music. He has released very few originals (independently) but has produced a tonne of stuff collaborating with a numerous and diverse range of artists. He has a few remixes which again range greatly in style. The beauty of the remixes is the subtle use of simple production executed cleverly. This has left him with a small collection of potent and lasting remixes.

His recent tour down-under was received very well as he bounced around the country with the bunch of other DJs playing Parklife in each of the capital cities. One of the unique aspects of his tour was that he played two sets in each city. So while each DJ had one time slot at Parklife he had two separate ones on two different stages. The idea behind this was Erol's recent Disco 3000 venture. This is a style of music that can't be easily defined but by the name suggests there is a definite disco element with a futuristic approach. So he played a regular festival style set which was still very well put together with a pile of big electro/house/tech songs and ALSO played a 'Disco 3000' set.

At the end of last year Erol released the first part of his Disco 3000 series and people began to stir. The underground scene hopped onto it quickly and music boofs started talking. Without a tracklist countless blogs/forums tried to pinpoint a complete tracklist. I still haven't seen a complete accurate one to date. Erol Alkan's Resident Advisor Podcast (RA171) was re-released recently as part 2 of the Disco 3000 series. A similar thing has happened with the tracklist this time with Erol saying it's "coming soon" people have from all over have tried to decipher the mash of tracks.

I rate this mix for two main reasons. Firstly, its a collection of unknown tunes which creates a element of freshness and suspense that often mixes lack or more often loose after a short period of time. Secondly the alternate style of mixing keeps the mix interesting and also showcases Erol's amazing ability to somehow make two opposite songs sit side by side. Just download it and see what I mean.

Feeling Sick?

Boy 8-Bit (a Staying Sick fav) is currently undertaking an Australia/New Zealand tour with Ed Banger boy Feadz. Fuzzy has brought the interestingly matched pair out for a whirl wind tour, in a weeks time they're playing 5 different cities in 5 consecutive days!

Personally I'm very fucking excited to see Boy 8-Bit's set. Feadz will be good no doubt but I think the British cat could bring us something special. Similar to this fresh remix that's so new you'll struggle to find it elsewhere!

This is the final installment of the Bang Gang Mini Mix series before they dropped their brand new of complilation of "tracks, songs, jingles and jangles". It's by none other than local Sydney boys the Bag Raiders. I think it's a neat selection of songs including a few old time Bang Gang favourites. By chopping and changing relatively smoothly this mix stays interesting and fun with a few twists. Im excited for the next batch of originals these guys put out.

Dance Till Ya Dead!

I served you the entre a few weeks ago and it went down well. Now here is the real thing in it's full 320kbps glory! It's even better than I remember. A-Trak you are a genius and this is gold. Off with ya head!

Yeah Yeah Yeahs-Heads Will Roll (A-Trak Remix)

Unfortunately this is a rip but it's still most definately worth a listen. Everyone loves a lil Biggie including Avicii and Philgood. This bootleg has a big house sound and reminds me of the distinctive Swedish House Mafia Sound.

Gypsy Wedding Music

This comes from the A-trak files, you should check out his youtube vault some cool videos of all his scratch routines. These guys just sit around making solid tunes. I want that studio!!!

The disco house train has left the platform and is gaining speed. In recent times I have blabbed about how the current electronic music scene is leaning back towards some of it's earlier roots of disco and house. Well it's now clearing evident with the proof of current production that disco house is becoming increasily popular. This is a good thing in my eyes/ears as I'm a big fan off this energetic, fun, dance music. So hear are a few that have caught my attention recently.

This is a track that I heard Aeroplane DJ's play at Parklife and it went off. Their set was fun and had a great party vibe. This was one of the many nu-disco driven tracks played. Don Diablo's work seems to vary greatly in style and substance. This is definately some of his better stuff and shows what he is capable of.

Youth Speed Trouble Cigarettes (Don Diablo Remix) - Cassius

An artist that I'm a big fan of haven't given due props on Staying Sick is His Majesty Andre. He's an English born and based producer/DJ that has been around for ages and from some reason doesn't seem to gain much attention outside of Europe, whcih he should. His style can't be pigeon holed as his music is based around careful, clever and clear production. This is one of his more energetic disco house remixes that he seems to be keen on currently. (More His Majesty Andre - Coming Soon!)

In My Eyes (His Majesty Andre Remix) - Burns

I first heard the Riva Starr remix of this Malente track in a set. I then copped the single and discovered there's a unusual drop off about two thirds of the way through the song. This GlowTape! edit covers it right up by creating a sneaky lil 30 sec build up (at the 3:18 mark) that actually adds to the song by helping breaking it up a bit!

I Like It (GlowTape! Lieks An Edit) - Malente Vs Riva Starr

This last one was brought to my attention my latest crush, Duck Sauce. It's another upbeat disco house track. I can't sit still and listen to this.

Bruxism Groove - Titan

This is a track is less disco/house than the others. It's tacken from Zombie Nations 2006 studio album 'Black Toys' and still remains to be funky and fresh.

Taxi Extreme - Zombie Nation

Claes Rosen-funktion!

The 26 year old music producer, Claes Rosen has been around since the early 90s. The man from Sweden is a man of many melodies. He is probably best know in these parts (Oz)for his Pryda-Shadows remix. Just wanted to share, as this is his new one, and its abit more disco house than his other stuff, however the rolling melodies are still evident. The artwork created for his releases are very similiar to the above picture, tranquil.

Mix Monday 31

This week’s Mix Monday is a slightly different flavour with a mixtape from the North Carolina born and bred rapper J Cole. This is real hip hop. Currently the hip hop scene at crossroads. With shrinking budgets, music executives, resting on their laurels, search out the next YouTube sensation with a catchy hook and dance move in order to amass digital single sales. While many artists have tried to break through despite an industry melt down, few have been met with critical praise. Looking to succeed where his contemporaries have failed, J Cole (born Jermaine Cole) brings promise of a new day in hip hop music.

It's been said that the 'golden days' of hip hop are long gone and not coming back. This is a statement that I have tried to deny although it seems increasingly true with the motives and in turn music that is being placed in front of us. Well J Cole is something different. He's not about making a quick buck, rather taking time and effort to get to where he wants and plans to keep going. After two mixtapes J Cole is now the first sign-ee of Jay-Z's brand new record Label, Roc Nation. If that's not a big deal I don't know what is.

The first mixtape, The Come Up, was released in 2007 and with J Cole now living in New York he began to get noticed. He rapped over old classic hip hop beats that had influenced him while also making his own music from scratch. He is a true lyricist saying that his biggest influence would have to be Tupac for his content but lyrically he admired and studied the likes of Master P, Nas, Eminem, Canibus, Royce, Jay-Z and Biggie. Two years (March 2009) later he dropped The Warm Up and then got signed by the Jigga man. Big stuff. He featured on Jay-Z most release studio release The Blueprint 3. This is the mixtape that got him signed.

Days Ahead

Today the first instalment of who will be pumping randwicks turf club.

Future Music Festival 2010 lineup:

The Prodigy
Empire Of The Sun
Franz Ferdinand
Booka Shade
John Digweed
Sven Vath
David Guetta
Erick Morillo
Above & Beyond
Boys Noize
Does It Offend You, Yeah?

Plus; many more, Future entertainment loves a suspense build in my opinion. So with this killer start they have to rival Field Day. Just put Oizo up there with a carton of Malboro Reds!

With a quick mention to Field Day, what a lineup that is? Mash-up kings 2manydjs are at the top of the bill, supported by The Presets, as well as the super- duo of Switch + Diplo who will be performing as Major Lazer Soundsystem. Just get ready for those Major Lazer White Noise drops....
There’s plenty of love for Wednesday night indie-dance – Architecture in Helsinki, Datarock and Amanda Blank. Then Dubstep, I can only take it in small doeses but it will be cool to see actual dubstep Djs doing there stuff, Dubstep makes a serious appearance with Skream & Benga. Lovers of the next-generation of electro and fidget are more than catered to with acts like Fake Blood(sorry again), The Proxy, Sinden, Jack Beats while house and tech fans get a solid representation of DJs that includes Fred Falke, Sebastian Leger, Nic Fanciulli.

An honourable mention that DJ Yoda will be there, DJ Yoda is a pioneer of Audio-Visual Djing and has transformed clubbing as we know it, throwing down styles as diverse as Hip-Hop, Funk, Baltimore Club, Drum n Bass and even Country music, all cut-up with a awe-inspiring selection of film, TV show and You Tube visuals that elevate his sets to the uniquely sublime. Hopefully they bring the visual part into the Domain, as in the last year Yoda has had many achievements including;

-Performing with Lily Allen providing exclusive visuals
-DJ’d to packed-out clubs everywhere from Beijing to New York, when a promoter wants a club full they call this Guy
-Performed alongside the likes of Amy Winehouse, Mark Ronson and Fatboy Slim.
-Provided Pete Tong with his first ever hip-hop Essential Mix for BBC Radio 1

So keep an eye on Dj Yoda, as hes been in the game for a very long time and will rock da house!

Now some tracks for CDR and to go into your Car!
Crazy P-The Hit Original Mix.mp3

Ben Mono - Protection (Siriusmo Remix).mp3

Make Her Say (Sammy Bananas Remix).mp3

Jeffer remix pack has been done by a few but my fave by far was the Modeselektor version.
Boys noize-Jeffer(Modeselektor Remix).mp3

Thought I might just throw this one in, I am not really sure about it. Its very hard. Great build then ruins it with the solidness. Needs more of a Tom Novy approach. Or i reckon Armand should let Duck Sauce handle it!

At last weekend Parklife I was lucky enough to catch the Serato King 'A-Trak'. He played a pretty mixed set starting out with some large electro tunes. About thirty or so minutes in he played a bit of a hip hop medley including oldies like Simon Says, Nuthin' But A "G" Thang and Dead Prez's Hip Hop. After this he sort of chopped and changed between a range of songs and styles. Then just when he had the crowd in his hand after his Daft Punk Robot Rock beat juggle he dropped Duck Sauce's "aNYway". Although not everyone in the gurning crowd recognised it, it certainly got a response with people fist punching to the disco house bomb. Tune.
Well now here's the video which is fuckin gold if you ask me. It's what the song makes me envision. I wanna learn this routine and bust it out in a club!

Cream is here! This is my most recent mixtape and is somewhat different from the last few bits and pieces I've put out. Over the last few months you may have heard me rambling on about the nu-disco movement and how I believe this scene is becoming more prominent. Well this is a collection of tunes that have caught my eye, new and old, and the idea was to present you with a mix that shows this disco-house sound and how fun and energetic it can be, (it's not always about the biggest bassline of largest distortion). Anyway, without further a due I present to you "CREAM". Please tell me what you think.

Calvin Harris's second studio album titled 'Ready For The Weekend' has recieved a positive and encouraging amount attention since it dropped in late August. Doing a nice job musically and otherwise following up his debut chart topper this album quite similar in style and if anything probably a bit less pop and slightly more electro. Although it still contains a large amount of radio friendly tracks. As with his last album a lot of the hype has been aided by the singles and remixes that come hand in hand. With 'I'm Not Alone' and 'Ready For The Weekend' getting reworked by every big name under the sun. I've included one of my favourite tracks of the album which is bouncy and fun.

Stars Come Out - Calvin Harris

This clip is pretty sick. It's the world's first human synth! When it all comes together towards the end you'll be impressed.

Brand New

I've got two brand spanking new tracks for you. So new I only have radio rips to offer. The first is a track which Busy P played and clearly rated at Parklife. Busy P said earlier in the year that A-Trak's remix of Kilometer was the 'Remix of the Year'. Well this is his lastest one and Annie Mac obviously loves it too. It's more big room electro style than his previous work but does a great job at creating yet another different and substainal track.

Preview Heads Will Roll (A-Trak Remix) - Yeah Yeah Yeahs

The second track is one that may not even be released due to the fact that is was apparently mad exclusively for a video game! The Crookers have been working hard on their new album which is about to drop very soon. The duo have been doing some work with Solo, (check out the Solo remix of 'Put Your Hands On Me'), and this track is a collab between both of them. Mad, Bad sound.

Preview Bad Man Sound - Crookers & Solo

The Simple Things

The Simple Things is an art project which was inspired by the creative individuals Takashi Murakami and Pharrell Williams. The idea behind the work how we overlook the simple things in life, hence the title. Pharrell choose seven of his most cherished items which are individually worth next to nothing and then made the items out of the earth's most precious stone and metals. This is supposed to be ironic as these are the things that we overlook but truly care for. Pharrell says it all better. He is such an intelligent forward thinking human and still remains so grounded. He often blesses his good fortune but you never reach heights like he does without something special.

This clip showcases Pharrell's intellect even if he is interviewed by a complete spastic. He thinks on another level. This is the type of person who inspires... I once heard him asked
“Would you say you set trends?”
He replied.
“I escape trends.”

Who likes a good party?

So you like a good party? How about the Best Party Ever?! Yeah, sounds good. It is.
Toecutter is an underground Sydney based DJ has been in the scene for over a decade now. Not conforming to any one style this fellow has produced a range of stuff in his time, a lot of it more swayed towards the hardcore scene. A track he made a lil while back has received a bit of attention and those crazy Bang Gang boys have picked it up. Now, being released on the Bang Gang 12" label is the original along with a diverse collection of remixes from local and international producers.

Here's what the interesting man that is Toecutter had to say about it himself:
"I've been doing my thing my whole life! I was pretty surprised that they asked me to release 'Best Party Ever'. I think they liked the hook and were like 'Well, this COULD be great, but it's a little RED LINED!' we touched it up a bit. You should hear the early mixes of it. It was like Roule Records but made on a harpsichord - jarring and mechanical! I am really pleased to meet these guys cause they are sweet-AS, and a lot more open-minded than I thought they would be!

Here is the original piece of work which is very unique with quite a few chops and changes. This is accompanied by the Perth kid Shazam's remix who, like of late, has produced another quality nu-disco take on things!

Best Party Ever - Toecutter

Best Party Ever (Shazam Remix) - Toecutter


Local Sydneyman, Beni, has started going places. It's not as if he wasn't earlier, he has simply started gaining the recognition he deserves. His latest EP has been picked up by the Kitsune kids as was his last one, My Love Sees You. This has in similar fashion led the track to a string of remixes by some solid players. Amongst them, Alex Gopher (who he has worked with and remixed before), Havard Bass, Jori Hulkkonen and fello Aussie boys Andy & Ohh Wee. I've decided to include the Melboune boys remix as it's my favourite, although, it's a solid little remix package without a dud in the bunch. Worth the purchase.

Maximus (Andy & Ohh Wee Pink Version) - Beni

I had to include this music video. I only saw this the first time the other day and it made me go have another listen, somehow I hadn't even noticed that fun-boy Sam Sparro does the vocal.

This video is gangster. The 17/70 year old b-boy in the red pants is as real as they come. It's refreshing to see a dance video that ISN'T utter shite, its not the budget just the ideas that make videos like these!

Mix Monday 30

On the long weekend the Parklife tour managed to tear through three capital cities in three days. The middle of the mayhem was an overcast Sunday in Sydney. With a diverse and pretty deep line-up there was a lot to choose from and a range on offer to keep most happy. One of the first sets I saw on the day was in the afternoon, when there was about half an hour of sunshine which was all the day had to offer. The music that was beening spun was that of the Aeroplane Dee-Jays.

Aeroplane which is actually two guys, Vito De Luca and Stephen Fasano, are from the friendly neighbour of Europe, Belgium. These two guys have been pumping out work solidly now for a couple of years and are a favourite amongst many. I've often heard people try and critise the work of these talented two labelling there music as boring and not 'dance' music. Thats bullshit. The music these two have been producing may not be hard dance music, it's far from it. That's not the aim here. Through showing a new and fresh sound upon us Aeroplane have played a vital role in the current shift towrds more musically creative and melodic disco style music which seems to be influcing the entire dance scene currently.

The set they played was not only great musically I felt they did one of the best jobs on the day and playing right to the audience. With a very appropriate style, tempo and mixing the crowd seemed to be loving the late afternoon disco-house set. They weren't playing a tonne of their own stuff but rather a collection of some more disco/house and upbeat fun electro like Duck Sauce!

This set is a "30 minute mix" (it's actually 36) by the two is comprised entirely of there own workings. A bit slower and relaxed than the live set I witnessed this does a suberb job in showcasing the guys talents.

30 Minute Mix - Aeroplane


1.Lullabies In The Dark - Sonf for M&E (Aeroplane Remix)
2.Aeroplane Feat. Kathy Diamond - Whispers
