Dave Gahan- Kingdom (Booka Shade and Digitalism Remixes)

7 10 2007

Dave Gahan, of Depeche Mode fame, has just released the next batch of remixes from his single “Kingdom” off of the album “Hourglass”.  Heavy hitters Digitalism and Booka Shade are on board as well.  Digitalism’s remix is distorted and moody, while Booka’s remix is not quite typical of them but is still a really pleasant surprise.

Buy “Hourglass” by Dave Gahan at amazon.

Health

Health (from LA) sounds like a late sixties garage-psychedelia band combined with the angsty noise of the Velvet Underground. If you enjoy shroom trips in dark forests where visions of rainbow colored snakes slither through trees, then you’ll be enraptured by Health’s perfect mixture of pscychedelia and modern alternative sounds. Interestingly they put three remixes of their songs available for download on a separate myspace (click here). I’ve uploaded them to my server here for you to download. My favorite remix is the CFCF remix of Triceratops. It’s eerie as hell. It’s like a bad acip trip through Miami Vice land.

For those who want to shake their ass the Crystal Castles remix is good for holding your elbows next to your rib cage and swinging your wrists around.

Johnatron’s Edit Wednesday #27

4 10 2007

“Eutow” by Autechre has long been one of my absolute favorite songs of all time. This song, along with a couple of other classics such as “Windowlicker” by Aphex Twin, represents a time period in which WARP records was at the top of its game. They are still awesome now, but in the early to mid-90s WARP dragged a lot of kids, including myself, into the electronic music camp. This shit is old enough that when it came out I was still listening to nu-metal. It is about time that it gets a lame dance edit.

MP3: “Eutow (Johnatron Edit)” – Autechre

Buy Autechre’s “Tri-Repetae++” at Amazon.

DJ B.Cause

3 10 2007

I think DJ B.Cause is pretty much the shit. Usually edits of old school songs come off sounding really corny or like 1995 in a bad way. Not this shit,… it’s tight like who knows what. I could only think of really crass things to compare that to. It’s pretty difficult to find a good edit of Stevie Wonder. The bass seamlessly accentuates Stevie Wonder’s catchy as fuck verses.

Also – any excuse to listen to T-Pain is welcomed. Thanx gawd for T-Pain edits and songs about fucking bartenders.

DJ B.Cause resides in SF and plays in the clubs frequently. He plays every Wednesday at Double Dutch in the city.

Gucci Soundsystem

 Gucci Soundsytem might be known to a lot of you as the guys that brought you the awesome remix of Tiefschwarz’s “Wait and See”.  This joint, “Acarpenter”, is a bit different.  Let’s call it minimal disco.  This record sounds like Moroder teamed up with (insert something stupid here) and made a record in this modern day and age. 

“Acarpenter” came out on “Bugged Out” in 2006, but James Murphy, of DFA and LCD Soundsystem fame, loved it so much he picked it up.  As a bonus, the new Joakim remix is included.  If you thought the original was dated from the start (in a good way), then wait until you hear this one.

Buy the “Acarpenter” at Pure Groove.
