Adult Disco

Future Classic are a Sydney based group that have been catering for more musically educated audience in the disco scene. They're the guys that brought you Aeroplane, Classixx, Todd Terje, Joakim, Canyons and plenty more. They run a weekly party on Sunday afternoons down at the Tilbury in Woolloomooloo.

Starting this Saturday (1st May) they're launching a new party called 'Adult Disco'. This is going to be a weekly gig held at the Civic Underground. It's gonna be good! For all you kids out there that live on Aeroplane monthly mixs, wake up and check 'Too Many Sebastians' and wish you were Breakbot then this is the party for you. Too many places these days don't focus on the music which should be the base of any good club night. Here's a mix that Nathan McLay laid down and will give you a good idea of what to expect. So come on down this Saturday and see what all the fuss it about....
And if you head over here you can sign up to their mailing list which will not only keep you informed but means you get in fo FREE this Saturday!

Ohh God!

A-trak dropped this track a couple of weeks ago at the WMC in Miami. Everyone has been going crazy over it since, watching the youtube videos over and over, deciphering the sample and analysing the production. It’s pretty amusing just to sit back and watch the hype. These boys know what they’re doing.

Anyway, it was only so long before someone was gonna make a bootleg and get it out there. This cat, O-God, has done exactly that. Taking the original Boney M sample, snippets from when A-Trak dropped it live and a bit of work in Ableton with a few kicks and hey presto you got some Duck Sauce. Can’t wait for the real thing but in the mean time this will more than suffice.

Mix Monday 41

Telonius is from one half of Munk, Gomma record label and in his own regard a very talented solo artist. The collection of artists signed to his amazing German label include WhoMadeWho (Denmark) , Munk (Germany), Telonius (Germany),HEADMAN (Berlin), Moullinex (Portugal), Phenomal Handclap Band (USA), DISKOKAINE (Vienna), The KDMS (London)along with others. He has a bunch of monthly mixes available that are well worth a look at. Today however I have a pretty damn special mix. It's his recent Winter Wipeout Mix which blew me away. It invloves 20 odd tracks over an hour which sounds more like 10 tracks that you don't want to end.

The mix starts of with a baleric/cosmic disco vibe and suddenly turns deep and dark and then gets housey to finish of with some classics which are mainly tribally influenced. I think the mixing is imaculate, you don't know when songs are starting or stopping, more just a progression of genres. Download this and see if you're not nodding.

Someone to Watch in 2010

This guy has been pumping out some big remixes. I heard a Dj set recording featuring Chuckie opening with Swick- Grow Up (Cassian Remix)at the WMC this year. And his latest Flight Facilities remix of Crave You is definatiely reaching its target audiences and beyond.

Also the Cassian remix of Cassette Kids is getting some love on BBC radio 1 in the UK via the duo Jaymo and Andy George.

Here is a sample for you to enjoy:

Cassette Kids-Spin(Cassian Remix)320.mp3

Cassette Kids-Spin(Cassian Remix Dub)320.mp3

Also keep an eye out for the Telonius - Hit Me EP which features another Cassian remix.

Cassian is definately someone to watch in 2010.

Duck Sauce - Barbra Streissand

Everyone knows Ducksauce s first big tune, aNyway. Just a simple cover taken and transformed into a modern day dance track. At the WMC most artists are trying to play the freshest stuff, and A trak did just that. Here is a snippet of whats being called Ducksauce s new one, Barbra Streissand. However I cannot confirm. See what you think, its definitely their sound.
