It's been a while since I posted however I have been busy and do apologise. On the other hand my line of work allows me the freedom of listening to a lot of music which is just great. So whilst at work with my iPod on shuffle Paranoid Android by Radiohead came on. I just absolutely love this song along with the band. It's pure genius! The song broke musical boundaries with sections in 7/8 time... gaaah that doesn't make sense! Thom Yorke and Radiohead are possibly one of the most musically revolutionary bands to date and I thank them for everything they've done for music as a whole!
Radiohead - Paranoid Android
When Radiohead released 'In Rainbows' they held some remix contests for two tracks off the album so as a bone-ass I thought I would post up my favourite of each...
Radiohead - Nude (Holy Fuck Remix)
Radiohead - Reckoner (Diplo Remix)
Great clip... ooh Parlophone seems to have disabled embedding...jerks! I was going to post the Karma Police video but instead here's two performances from Glastonbury in 2003..truly powerful stuff.

Torro Torro have been building a ton of buzz out of Toronto. Their driving electro-house is full of vibrant sounds, thoughtful arrangement, and diversity. Although the duo has only existed in the web world since late last Summer, Yo Ev and Mikey Digits are no strangers to music. With pounding synths, deep kicks, and big buildups, their production is ready to move the dancefloor.
Armed with a giant hairdo and some seriously wicked beats, this 21-year-old young gun has burst onto the U.K. wonky scene with a series of bass-heavy tracks and bootleg remixes. Born Benjamin Stefanski, and often recognized by the mysterious pair of scissors he uses as a Logo.RAFFERTIE has won over the bassline and dubstep crowds with low-end smashers like “Wobble Horror!” and “Antisocial,” two very brain liquefying, Fidgeting, wonkifying buzzing tracks, His down right filthy style has been smashing up the UK’s underground dance music scene for the last couple of years he's one of those artists where you can't wait to hear what he's going to come up with next, Take a listen I'm sure you will agree..

Some not super new but definitely super fresh music from Australian band Tim & Jean. These two WA lads are 18 (Tim) and 15 (Jean). Their song 'Come Around' is a happy, synth heavy, indie-pop delight. It's been on repeat here at the Smidgem office for some time now and I'll always put it on when I need a pick me up, such a happy tune. When I found out how young these two were I was certainly shocked. Their music and lyrics have a funny sense of sophistication to them that I would not expect from men of such a young age. With various festival dates booked around Oz this summer I see HUGE things in the future for these two whippersnappers!
Tim & Jean - Come Around
Check out this cover they did of the DMB song Crash Into Me.
Also vote for 'Come Around' in the hottest 100 here! DO IT!

Having just released his debut single on influential Scottish label Stuff Records, Offshore strips the original back into a bass-heavy wonk-crunk masterpiece.I really really really like this song like heaps and im sure you will to..Enjoy

This guy knows how to make noise taking his own brand of experimental squeaks,beats,bass and other blends around the world.Signed to Tiga's record label Turbo Recordings.
Proxy has been destroying ears and venues around the world pushing for life that only exist after midnight his music can be described as electro rave id call it war music. He hasnt been in the game for long really coming to tigas attention through his myspace with his first track in 2007 called Destroy it became an immediate anthem. His follow up Decoy was dubbed post nu rave anthem of 2008. And was followed hauntingly by Dancing In The Dark. Then what really got him out there the track every ones ears are familiar with the 2009 track of the year RAVEN oi oi oi, He has an LP due sometime this year so stay tuned because whatever this young Muscovite sensation will serve up next you know it will be explosive. Here are a bunch of my favourite tracks by him so don't be scared to download them all there all banging and like i always say listen to them LOUD.

Happy 2010 Smidgemers, hope your respective festivities were bouncing and the supply of intoxicants ample.
I've been over that 'big' house sound for a while now, that mainroom shit they play in Sydney's more 'trendy' places with seemingly endless repetitive basslines, rolling kicks and female vocal hooks drives me insane. You could hit a baby with a cat in a studio and produce better music. Now onto my point, I was scrolling through my music the other day and came across the Kris Menace remix of Shooting Stars by 'classically trained, turned ruler of all things dance' Sydney duo Bag Raiders. Now this is what house is! So deep and rich with so many layers that makes this song just a blessing on the ears. This song went from a play count of 3 to about 53 in a matter of days.. absolutely loving it..and now it's yours!
Bag Raiders - Shooting Stars (Kris Menace Remix) [ Removed by request ]
Here's a 2008 release that Mr Menace did with Spooky. This tune is -is--is well... just great.
