- Hot Chip – Day & Night (Daphni Remix) – Domino Records
To me, this is the only way to listen to Hot Chip. More breaks, less vocals and volle Pulle. Was released as a limited editin 12″ for record store day but is now also available digitally.
- Lana Del Rey – Blue Jeans (MK Dark Blue Dub)
Like an old school 90ties MK mix, but better: the trade mark chopped up vocals are back with phatter beats. Marc Kinchen recently returned to house music (besides producing Pitbull) and I’m still in love with him. And not just the music. This is the best of the 3 remixes he did of Blue Jeans. You were sorta punk rock. You were sorta punk rock. You were sorta punk rock.
- Shalamar – Make That Move (AC Re-Edit)
Recently found this re-edit of Shalamar’s disco classic. The full vocals only kick in at the 4 min mark. Until then the remixes rides on the feel good rhythm. LOVE IT. Free download.
- Jesse Perez – Dejen De Comer Tanta Pinga – Hot Creations
Gets the dance floor going every time.
- The KDMS – Wonderman (Original) / Wonderman feat. Alexis Taylor (Justus Köhncke remix) – Gomma
Kathy Diamond is the lead singer of duo KDMS, who just released their album ‘Kinky Dramas & Magic Stories‘. The current single is Wonderman Listen to the original version and the cover/remix with vocals by Alexis Taylor (of Hot Chip) remixed Justus Köhncke. BAM.
- Todd Terje – Inspector Norse – Olsen/Smalltown Supersound
Nordic nu disco no brainer.
- Tornado Wallace – Insect Overlords – Delusions Of Grandeur
Deep & dark.
- Arttu – Attic House (Gerd’s Re-Arrange-Mix) – 4Lux
Arttu – Nuclear Funk feat. Jerry The Cat – Clone Royal Oak
- Deichkind – Leider Geil (Solomun Remix) – Universal
Das deutsche Haus.
- Usher – Climax (Poupon Edit)
This is the pitched down vocals – sped up beats version. Although, I still can’t get enough on the original Climax.
Just catching up on the new music videos that have been released during the last couple of days.
Here’s Mariah’s new clip. Or better The-Dream featuring Mariah in My Love. The intro has Mariah and TD fighting over da dough. Mimi: “You wanna make it about the bills? It’s all about the bills now.”
And there are out takes of the fighting scene, posted my Mariah’s husband. TD: “You with your fake Louis Vuitton belt on. With your fake Gucci shoes on.”
The new Deichkind video is again directed by the brilliant Alex & Liane. This time, they have hired a bunch of male plastic models to lipsync the song Luftbahn (Airway as in We’re driving with the airway through the night). The übergay models show of their gym bodies later in the clip, using Nutella to write Yes and No on their robo-skin. There are Joe Dallesandro references & super cute animals. WATCH IT.
In very sad news Deichkind’s producer, Sebastian Hackert, responsible for the kids sound, passed away in February. The band has not yet decided if they are going to continue Deichkind.
Earlier: Deichkind – Arbeit Nervt
One of my favourite German bands, Deichkind is returning with a new album in October. The record and first single are called Arbeit Nervt (Work Sucks). DikeKid are hailing from Hamburg and started out as a Hip-Hop combo before venturing to their current, more electro based sound.
With their new single Deichkind are again on the border of hick-ness (Prolltum) and party alarm.
Geh’ du do ma lieber hin für misch.
