Dubstep Music in London UK Garage Scene



This is a clip from a documentary on dubstep music in London. Being a music fan to the Nth degree and a fan of reggae, house, and techno music - I am really digging the dubstep movement. Take a listen. I hope you also enjoy it.

Droppin' Chicken Nuggets of Knowledge - Part 1



"Can you sing me a Technotronic song?" - quote from The Venture Brothers cartoon

Just to let everyone know...I'm a house music nerd. Apparently, Girls don't like house music nerds...they just like Star Wars type nerds.

I came across "Let It Drop" by DJ Delicious a couple weeks ago on the Fluokids blog. My first thought was excitement and then a little bit of disgust and then excitement again. I got mad because it samples the vocal from "Let this housebeat Drop" by Ya Kid K (member of Technotronic) and I don't think that he even gives any credit to Ya Kid K. Then I listen to the track fully...and its really fuckin' good. I think it does the original justice.

DJ Delicious - Let It Drop

Then I found another DJ Delicious track. This time he collaborated with Till West to make "Same Man". Once again find DJ Delicious sampling another house classic (actually this one is Electro-Funk), "For the Same Man" by B Beat Girls. The new version is so good that I really can't hate on it.

Till West and DJ Delicious - Same Man

I'll give these guys the benefit of the doubt and say that they were just tryin' to make something for the dancefloor and something that trainspottin' house nerds would like. I just wish that they would have called it a remix and not an original track. I'll post the original tracks next week.

Fuck you, I love Lily Allen. And to be honest with you folks, I haven't heard a voice and style this unique come about since Sade, and we don't even want to get me started on my deep, adoring, mind-blowing adoration for Sade. Can I compare Lily Allen to Sade, in all reality, no, I can't do that, Sade is a league of her own.. Soooo, uhhhh, I can see this turning into a honorary Sade post already, Fuck it, I'm gonna go with that. you need Sade in your life, no, really, get in touch with your feminine side. Now to get you to the good stuff.

Love it, hate it, I don't care, but you can buy it here. Don't sleep on Sunday Best, we here at soup and crackers love the label. With talent like Max Sedgley, Subway, and Kompis we will be checking in with them regularly.



Not for my "Hey, lets get sumptin to keep my dancefloor Crackin." Always a hard decision to make, first I got to sort through what I'm super duper feelin. Then I got to see if anybody's already posted it through Hype Machine. Oh the pain and torment of running an mp3 blog. I'm gonna go with Dino Lenny, with TV Rock on the remix. download it, take a listen, then be a peach and go over to Beatport and buy it!!!! if you like it!



Dino Lenny "Call Me" (TV Rock Remix)



and for my second cut, I'm gonna go with Headman off of the German Label Gomma. As far as I'm concerned Gomma is Germany's answer to DFA. And A damned good answer at that.

Headman "Upstart"




Headmans new album "It Rough"(listen/purchase on Beatport) came out four months ago and it features Guest vocals by Matt Safer (The Rapture), Stephan Dweale (Soulwax), Erol Alkan and others. You can add Gomma on your myspace here, and then check out the fucking rad video for Headmans new single "moisture" on their page. And you can add Headman on your myspace here, without a doubt check his killer remix of The Gossip, tops the ATOC (A Touch of Class) remix, and that is not an easy thing to accomplish.

Spoon Fed - Vol. 4 1/4

Daft Punk released a movie called 'Electroma' at the Cannes film festival and according to the press release it's "...a psychedelic musical and visual odyssey that revolves around two robots and their quest to become human." To the left is a still from the movie. I'm not sure when it will be available for public consumption but I can't wait. Also Cassius is back on the scene but I'll save that for a later post. The new Cassius album should be droppin' some time this year.




Today two of my favorite tracks were made by the same guy and I never knew. That guy being the multi-talented Justin Warfield of She Wants Revenge. Its crazy to hear how different his voice has changed over the past decade.

New:
She Wants Revenge - Tear You Apart (Ladytron Remix)

Buy it at Amazon

Old:
Bomb the Bass feat. Justin Warfield - Bug Powder Dust (La Funk Mob Remix)
Buy it at Amazon


Also, La Funk Mob is the Downtempo/Trip-Hop alias of Cassius if you didn't already know.

Honkie Fed - Vol. 2.02

With all the heat being directed toward the likes of MSTRKRFT, Digitalism, and to a certain extent Vitalic, I'm surprised at the lack of blog shine being put on Spain's Ascii Disko. I first heard Ascii on the
electric pop 3 compilation
with the pleasant remix of The Robocop Kraus "fake boys". What can I say about the "Fake Boys" remix, electric bass driven, angry, punk influenced song about punching fake people, delicious. But I'd like to draw some attention to Ascii's new album "alias." It's fucking good, really good. Ladomat 2000 picked up the album, and let me tell you, a better decision could not have been made by this German label, also check the free MSTRKRFT remix of metric, and the Le Tigre remix of Gossip in their mp3 section. This is what nasty, grimy, dirty 4/4 electro should sound like, fucking abusive.


Ascii Disco "Baphomet"

You can get more singles, or the whole album, from Beatport

For your mind I have the yet to be released My Toys Like Me with their tune "Gold Lace." You can check them on their myspace here. don't let the tribal intro fool ya. I could say a lot about this cut, but my energy is dwindling, I have friends in from out of town, and I have yet to take a shower.

Spoon Fed - Vol. 3


Ain't that shit the truth, The state of Colorado seems to think so. Starting Today, July 1st, you can no longer smoke in public places (Bars, Clubs, ect.) in Colorado. Good news for me because I don't smoke. Bad news for all you cancer stick holders. I have nothing against you just the smoke that you blow in my general direction.

SebastiAn from the Ed Banger crew brings some serious heat with this dirty, choppy electro banger.

Inhale:

SebastiAn - Smoking Kills (?)

Spoon Fed - Vol. 2


Today's visual art comes to you from the mind of Paul Robertson. Check out his Journal and his short animation film, 'Pirate Baby's Cabana Battle Street Fight 2006' (Part 1 & Part 2). Above is just a taste of what you'll see.

I've always liked 80's music mainly because I grew up in the 80's and there is just something about synths that have always appealed to me. 'Obsession' by Animotion came out in '84 so naturally I don't know much about the song because I was only 1 year old at the time. Then along comes Kissy Sell Out, 22 years later, to rejuvenate the song, extend it and give it more beef.

Eat up:

Animotion - Obsession (Kissy Sell Out Remix) /// 128 Bpm /// Time - 6:41

Buy Kissy Sell Out @ Rough Trade

Onto another obsession of mine, John Tejada's amazing remixes. John's signature sound is hard to explain because it doesn't sound like anything else that is out right now. Layer after layer, the music just pulls you into another world away from everything else that is going on in your life. Everybody probably remembers Télépopmusik cause they were the ones that told us all to just 'Breathe' 4 years ago. Now they are back telling us to not to look back and they came with a little help from John and Tim Paris. Tim's remix is the more dancefloor friendly of the two but I'm obsessed with every track that John touches. This is the kind of music that I live for.

Relax and let your mind be free:
