In No Particular Order

Always avoided lists, but this year I’ve decided to feature twenty of my favourite tunes from 2011. All that’s required is that they were released this year and I found myself going to back to them again and again. It’s a strange mix, but then there’s no accounting for taste. As the title suggests, the tracks listed aren’t in any particular order, just as I remember them.

I’ll see you in the New Year x

They Know What Is What, But They Don’t Know What Is What…

Mixing it up on both Friday 1 and Saturday 2 of June 2012, Fatboy Slim will dominate a weekend showcasing the evolution of electronica music from its pioneering inception right up to today’s cutting edge scene. On Friday, Fatboy Slim will be joined by the inimitable bass heavy-weight Carl Cox, whose trailblazing parties have seen him build a phenomenal international reputation as one of today’s definitive dance acts. Saturday will see the dubstep duo Nero rip-up the stage with their chart-topping, club-busting bassline sets. Each date will see over seven hours of pure dance entertainment, culminating in a scorching starlit set by the multi-award winning, platinum album selling, dance institution that is: Fatboy Slim.

Tickets are available at an early bird price of £35 from http://www.ticketline.net .

Back In The Room…

Samuel Johnson said ‘When a man is tired of London, he is tired of life’. Well, I haven’t tired of London ( haven’t been for ages, how could I?), but I sometimes tire of the Internet. Insidious beast that it can be, making your brain and eyes hurt. It’s like the TV adverts for Bing, too much information (on the subject of Bing ads, aren’t the couple in those adverts the most irritating couple of wankers ever. Horrible, snide tossers), making you whoop like a howler monkey. With my obsession for new tunes I have to spend a lot of time trawling t’web and sometimes I just get sick of it. Everything sounds the same, the blogs all look the same and everything is similarily rubbish. The last week or so I’ve backed off it, got a life, enjoyed the sun and have at the vegetable patch.

Back now, so lets get the quest started once again. What we got?

Run Riots got a new tune out. ‘Everybody Needs A Bassline2’ is an acid drenched stomper guaranteed to get the slowest crowd bouncing like a bunch of crazy mother fuckers. Get it on Beatport now. If you like this I recommend you look up Run Riots Charge EP for more of the same.

Continuing in a similar vein, Herve has donned his Action Man guise for a nice mix of FBS ‘Machines Can Do The Work’.

FatBoy Slim – Machines Can Do The Work (Action Man Acid Mix)

Picked up the JEFF the Brotherhood album Heavy Days the other day. Highly recommended. Shambolic jams, indeed. Think early Weezer and you’re in the right room of the house

JEFF the Brotherhood – Bone Jam

Dance hall killer from Benny Benassi to finish off. Featuring Kelis on voice. There’s some nice remixes of this around, but I’m sticking with the original. Huge tune

Benny Benassi feat Kelis – Spaceship

With the World Cup kicking off in a few days time, I’d just like to say –

COME ON ENGLAND!!
