Last week we gave you a small mix by one of our favourite DJ/producers, Boy 8 Bit. Over the weekend this Brit was granted the privledge and honour of the notorious Essential Mix. We've posted many Essential Mixes before and incase you hadn't gathered yet if you get to mix the Essential Mix you've made. That's why we were so giddy to see our boy Boy 8 Bit given the task.
The mix has been carefully put together and includes a range of tracks, new and old, common and rare and as always it includes plently of Boy 8 Bit's own material whether it be originals or remixes. There's also a few unreleased Boy 8 Bit tracks and a bunch of sneaky white labels in there. The music styles include some bouncy tech stuff, baltimore, electro house and the darker driving sounds the man is known for.

So Steve cancelled Creamfields, but for good reason. On May 10th 2010 Steve and his wife Isabel had a baby girl. Having their daughter on Monday and subsequently they named their newborn Monday-Lily.
Its good to see Steve holding his precious newborn so peacefully, it sort of looks like he just had the baby....
Stayingsick would like to congratulate Steve and his wife Isabel.
Below is Steve's wife Isabel's blog where you can see some more pictures.
A few for the weekend....
This is very similar to Duck Sauce's new track that got posted here earlier. It samples Boney M and from my understanding it is or was considered as an unofficial remix for DuckSauce s Barbra Streissand

Everyone is getting their remixes ready for the 'Speak No Americano' remix competition. Everyday I hear it on the radio which is saying to me the song is about to be ruined. But this competition will bring out some new and creative mixes. Heres a mix to compare yours too, or simply to hear a different take on the original.

Finally a chuckie remix of Moby. Alot of Moby mixes have come out, but for me this one is a beast.

I love Pharrell. Always have, I think he is one of the most talented producers alive. Uffie on the other hand, I have never been that fond of. When I heard their recent collaboration titled 'Add Suv' I must admit I was pretty disappointed. It was jerky and didn't really flow like the majority of Uffie's work. However, then I stumbled across the Armand Van Helden remixes, and now were cooking. He gives it a great disco slice, not dissimilar to his Duck Sauce work. It's big, fun and very bouncy which makes it a great dancefloor tune. There's a vocal and club mix. This is the club mix AKA less Uffie equals bigger banger!

Today's Mix Monday comes from a fresh European producer called Rubix. Stepping on to the scene properly last year, over the past 6 months this single man army has moved onto the radar of top producers and DJs around the world like AIDs through Africa. With a mixture of styles this Amsterdam based talented individual has released originals and remixes and even remixes of his originals spanning across disco, house, dubstep and tech. He's now playing around Europe on a regular basis and recently featured on Laidback Luke's FG Radio Show. Not bad for a guy no one knew of this time last year.
This particular mixtape covers a range of genres similar to the production he has to date, which is quite broad. I starts of with a few old tracks, disco-based and then moves onto some more recent bassier disco house. It then tacks a turn towards the tech side of things and finshes off with some pleasent (and not too hard) dubstep tunes. Well put together, you can hear the time and effort put into this mix.

On the weekend I attended the Creamfields festival in Sydney. With the international branding behind this party relatively high expectations were placed upon this festival for its debut on Australian soil. With a pretty diverse and pretty boring all round line up an usual crowd attended. Not your average music lovers. The set up was all wrong with a shit small room where MSTRKRFT closed in what may as well have been a bath tub it was that hot and sweaty. The Bloody Beetroots, the headline act, had 'technical difficults' and ended up playing ONE song after an hour wait. I actually ended up having a pretty good day hiding over near the suprisingly small and overlooked Planet Hardware stage where I caught a variety of nice techno and house. Riva Starr was by far the highlight for me with an 90 set of pretty much all his own work put together flawlessly and with class. Unfortunately though, overall, this festival was a complete failure in my opinion as clearly rushed, unorganised and unprofessionally run event that could have worked.
Enough with my bitching. On to some GOOD music which is why we're all here. By now a lot of people have heard of the latest and greatest super-collab between Riton and Mehdi (not necassarily in that order), called Carte Blanche. The two came together to make and play good old disco house music. The way it should be. By not overworking stuff and keeping it simple but effective you have something which is pleasingly fun. Get down.
The two are embarking on their world tour as we speak so check out Riton or Dj Mehdi's myspace to see if they're gonna be in your neck of the woods.
