Township bass // Globalista Punk

Producer Crypto.Jori (Jori Collignon) and vocalist/visual artist Cata.Pirata (Catarina Aimée Dahms) wrote and recorded “Riots in the Jungle” while traveling urban townships of South Africa, forming an unheard melting pot of original music that blends traditional sounds from Africa, South America and Europe into explosive electro-punk attitude and modern day wobble. Showing a typical Dutch blunt open-mindedness, coupled to schizophrenic traditions still present in South Africa, Skip & Die draws from their personal experiences to tell a story spanning multiple continents in a waterfall of languages.

World music on acid brings the noise.

Turntableism // electronic

C2C are a turntable act from France who are expanding into original music production. If you are into turntableism this band cannot be a stranger, having won the DMC team championship 4 of times in a row. If you’re not such a fan of people standing behind record players bobbing their head and moving their hands swiftly and accurately, fear not. Listen to ‘F.U.Y.A’ & ‘Down the Road’ and discover there’s more to turntableism than just rythmically moving a record forward and backward. Also check out ‘Tribute to Louis Armstrong’ which sees a fully scratched up rendition of Mack the Knife.

Scratched up tunes laced with deep bass.

Hey DJ Friday: Summer Selections

Friday, August 3rd, 2007 by Paul Irish

I’ve been meaning to put together a DJ mix for this summer. Something capturing the vibe of the patio dancefloor, the dudes on the wall looking for a head-nodder and the people of all flavors looking for a collective groove. Let me tide you over with a couple songs that would make the mix, and naturally all deserve a post of their own. Enjoy some Tru Thoughts treats with Freddie Cruger (aka. Red Astaire) and Flevans. Then bring it up a notch for Groove Armada’s killer single.

Freddie Cruger – Pushing On (feat. Linn) (from VA – Shapes 07 2007)
Flevans – 12 Apostles (from Cold Hands EP 2007)
Groove Armada – Get Down (from Soundboy Rock 2007)

Hey DJ Friday: TTC

More straight fire comes from France (It’s not blog house this time). The boys Cuizi Cuiz (last year’s Aurgasmic Adventure), Tacteel, Teki Latex and DJ Orgasmic are all striking out on their own, while still collaborating on some real heavy beats.

Hey DJ Friday: Chris Isaak and dub

Friday, December 22nd, 2006 by Paul Irish

Dub feels like the perfect match for one of the all-time classic love songs, “Wicked Game”. Business Man is a pseudonym of electronic music artist of the year Trentemøller, and he continues to execute with finesse.
