I've been rather lacking with the posting side of things lately, and it's lucky for the blog's sake that Jamie has been posting shit left right and centre (yeah Jamie, yeah!!!). Although I have been fairly busy at the moment with school, my own tunes and stuff like that. Anyway I don't want to bore you with my life so here's a few cool tunes that have had me bouncing around my room lately!
Huge Klaxons fan, saw them play it live and it was mental, huge Designer Drugs fan and the things they can do with a song that already rules so much had me salivating.....so, you say? Why haven't you posted this earlier? Hmmm, to be honest I listened to this track once when I got it a while back and dismissed it as "yeah a good track". However I was wrong...it's far more than that, it's a great track.
Klaxons - Echoes (Designer Drugs Remix)
This one is unreleased, however I sleuthed my way through various internet...things and acquired it. I'm very glad that I did, this in dopeness x4000. After hearing this I think it's fair to say mr. 12th Planet really influenced a lot of Skrillex's early production work. Regardless...this is fucking massive get it inside you speakers.. NOW!!!!
Skrillex ft. Penny - All I Ask Of You (12th Planet Remix)
I never really considered dutch house a genre, it's just one of those unnecessary sub-genres that, well, doesn't exist. Anyway call this what you want it's got a super dope vibe, cool atmospherics and some 8-bit esque synth that will have you smiling ear to ear.
Afrojack & R3hab - Prutataa

SlipperyWhenWet DJs were born in June 09, when Russ & Dean discovered that while other people’s eyes glazed over at their endless music-nerd talk ,they both shared a passionate love for electronic music, and could spend hours playing tracks for each other and crapping on about electro to fidget to dubstep. Already the coolest kids on the South coast, it wasn’t too long before the DJ duo grew too big for the Wollongong pond and started to head up to Sydney every weekend, where they felt so at home they quickly took up residences at the infamous club 77( Starfuckers), and Candys Apartment. The boys have been killing it on a few solo projects and collab's too under their other guises Ruslan & DeanJay. They're definitly a act to go out of your way to see!
They just sent through this awesome 20 min mix that is jam packed with the most banging tracks going round and it has plenty of their own work thrown in the mix too. This has been on serious repeat!

Just saw this interesting video of Rusko's single 'Everyday'. It's filmed at the Sonar Sea in southern California which seems like an extremely desolate place, although it makes for a great setting. The large RUSKO letters are also currently being used as a stage prop on his US tour which would no doubt be frickin' awesome! Take a look!

So I'm a little late on this one, however better late than never right? Sydneysider Moonchild's debut EP Love Birds is a down right doozy and has some seriously big names on the remix side of things. Russ Chimes, Gigi Barocco and Australia's own Vengeance make this an absolute top level release. I was particularly pleased with the Vengeance mix and it's probably my favourite song right now. Out now on Vamp Music, so head on over to Beatport and pick up this masterful EP!
[Out April 11th] Moonchild - Love Birds EP + Remixes by Moonchild
These two Canberra lads have done it again. I'm seriously impressed at the level of production these fellas have achieved in such a short time on the scene. Their latest release Bingo Trippin' is frickin' awesome and with a slew of great remixes, this is definitely one you should pick up. Out tomorrow on Viscous Bitch.

My last post was Feb.. now being May, i'm 3 months behind on my monlthy contribution.
I haven't just been sitting on my ass doing sweet FA..
I'd even done most of the writing for the previous months, just hadn't got around to posting! ha
So here's 3 Months worth of my thoughts and music
Back again, for the March digest
Received this in a mailout a couple weeks ago (2 months ago).
Dirty Dutch, bringin back ‘Let The Bass Kick’ for another round of club saturation, with this tight as Re-work/Mashup
Chuckie vs. Sgt Slick - The Bass Kicks Like This (Angger Dimas vs Chuckie Mix)
Something a little more chin strokable, Munnibrotherz new (2 months old) EP on Dirty Bird features an epic remix by the Zombie Disco Squad
Munnibrotherz - Moon Chon Chayoh (Zombie Disco Squad Remix)
Sydney gay-scene-spectacular Astrix Little has just completed (2 months ago) this rad Minimix;
Yui by Astrix Little (Mix Up) by astrixlittledj
Def check it out if your into Tech House
Finally, a couple full length, mixed & mastered versions of a our ‘What So? Not’ tracks are now available for download!
What So? Not - Breathe (Original)
What So? Not - Breathe (Original) by What So? Not
A tastey Ghetto/dutch banger, with a break battle Vocal hook.
Funky Boogie (What So? Not's 'Hugh Jackman Main Mix') - Pilooski & John Ozila
Funky Boogie (What So? Not's 'Hugh Jackman Main Mix') - Pilooski & John Ozila by What So? Not
As featured on the Sweat it Out! Music Blog, this is a punchy disco/tech house spin on the original.
It was announced a couple months back insitue had gone broke, and the label would be shutting down operations.
It was a sad day, knowing a label that released such groundbreaking music from the likes of Surkin, Bobmo & Para One, was at the end of it's time.
On a much more possative note, this has kicked started activity in new areas. Marble Records officially released their first singles this week (now 3 weeks ago). One being Marble Anthem;
An epic ghetto tech house hybrid. Big 808 bass, heavily swung percussion hits & crisp house vox sample.
+ a little something for those impatient Sydney crowds
The Marble Players (surkin, paraone, Bobmo) - Marble anthem (Elmo is Dead Edit)
& this first release is only the beginning, check out the clip bellow;
Introducing Marble by Marble Music
A teaser of epic proportion, running through snips of a number of the tracks soon to be released on the label
Dooze Jackers & Wes De Graaf - Euh! (Original Mix)
*Amendment* Just been informed that i'm a little behind the 8 ball & Lucus (Thrusher) Posted this tune about 4 months ago, before it was released
Still, heres an edit of the original
Dooze Jackers - Euh! (Elmo is Dead Edit)
& now we come to may!
As some of you know, for the past month I've been working away on the mix for the Fake Bratpack, a group of DJ's formed from the residents at FakeClub.
So for this month, I'm just going to give you a couple of edits & mashups, extracted from the mix (which should be up for download on Monday!)
Crookers & Savage Skulls - Bust Em Up (What So Not 'Bass Edition')
Crookers & Savage Skulls - Bust Em Up (What So Not 'Bass Edition') by What So? Not

Ardalan & Justin Martin Vs Light Year Vs The Party Squad - Mr Spock Pulled 5 Girls (Elmo is Dead Mash)
Yes i know... another Mr Spock bootleg haha.. But this one is pretty fun!
Hello Vs Paper Planes (Elmo is Dead Mash) - Martin Solveig & Dragonette Vs M.I.A.
An alternate version to the one on my soundcloud, this one goes into the original mix of Hello, prime for warmup sets.

First up Dumme Jungs have turned a monster into a monster from the year 3000. They labeled this as 'future shit' and it most certainly is. I can't get enough of the drop in this one it's stupidly massive. This is a 128kbps version...you can pick up the 320 and the rest of the Invasion EP here. I highly suggest you do with names like Figure and Trumpdisco on the remix bill this is guaranteed 5 stars!
F.O.O.L - Invasion (Dumme Jungs Remix)
I can't sing enough praise when it comes to this guy. Dillon Francis is just straight up a master of his craft. His ability to make tracks in every genre so well is something to be envied by every producer out there. Here is a smooth and funky Moombahton track that he dropped a few weeks back and a cruisy mellow Dubstep track that is hot off the press, both....amazing.
Toddla T - Take It Back (Dillon Francis Remix)
Chris Brown ft. Lil Wayne & Busta Rhymes - Look At Me Now (Dillon Francis Remix)
Now if that was a bit mellow for you then prepare your face to be melted. Canadian Andy's iLL has re-worked the theme song from the movie 'Requiem For A Dream' and turned it into an absolute destroyer of a Dubstep track. When I first heard this I though I was having a brain aneurism, but it turned out to be the bassline...ladies and gentlemen....this is heavy fucking shit!!!!
Requiem for a Dream (Andy's iLL Dub fix) <-----------Kahblammo!
This next tune is, well, pretty rad! Jack Beats smashed it with their newest single 'All Night' and the equally successful remix by Skream. Now the duo have returned the favour and made a fantastic remix of Skreams new one. A bit of a different direction than their previous stuff but none the less ....awesome!
Skream - Where You Should Be (Jack Beats Remix)
A little while back I really wanted to post Le Castle Vania's remix of 'Is You', however Jamie beat me to it. Needless to say I was super pissed yet equally pumped because Jamie and I were unknowingly on the same hot tip. Anyway...Le Castle Vania has done it again, this time with the help of Computer Club. This was made for the impending U.S summer but I think it will do really well warming us up here down south this winter.
Dj Falcon & Thomas Bangalter - Together (Le Castle Vania & Computer Club
Skrillex - Disco Rangers <--------Super awesomeness to the max!!!!
I'm sure by now everybody has heard of Crookers new collab project Dr. Gonzo. Their debut tracks have certainly been getting some mixed reviews. I personally can't get enough of it, just super fun, well produced songs that are guaranteed to get a dancefloor pumping...especially this one...it's plain stupid fun. Springer, boing boing boing boing...
Dr. Gonzo feat. Crookers, Wax Motif & Neoteric - Springer
And finally a super awesome remix of the ever popular Ellie Goulding's track 'Lights'. Everyone seems to be Dubstepping this song and Comic Strips certainly nailed it with his take.
Ellie Goulding - Lights (Comic Strips Remix)
