Crystal Castles - "Baptism"


Ontario based band Crystal Castles are set to release there second album "Crystal Castles" on June 7th. Crystal Castles have a lot to live up to since their first album was well received and critically acclaimed. But with the leaked track "Baptism" it sounds as though their new album will be even better. Ethan Kath took the reins and produced the album, however he didnt just do it in one studio he took the band to record in a church in Iceland, a self built cabin in Ontario and a garage behind an abandoned convenience store.  The track "Baptism" sticks to the Crystal Castles roots with electro bassline, 80's computer synths and nintendo like sounds. They already start touring and most likely some of their new tracks. I hope they get back down to Australia soon.

Jamaica - "I Think i Like U2 (Breakbot Remix)"


Breakbot is back and this time giving Jamaica's track "I Think I Like U 2" some Breakbot loving. Keeping with that cheesy love vibe that hes got going, Breakbot transforms the tracks into a 70's disco filled, turntable spinning beat. I think is one of his best remixes to date.

Science & Industry "Lets Go, Lets Go"

The kind people over at Rock Steady have sent over another awesome track from their EP "Lets Go, Lets Go". This one being the main track from their EP and features the LA based Vocalist Marie Herald. The track is full of thumping rymths, electro basslines, hypnotic voices and some fantastic guitar work that guide you on a dark but mesmerizing journey. Apparently they have an album the works but a release date is TBC.

Stereoheroes - "Blackout"

Renowned French dance floor destroyers Stereheroes was formed in 2008 and has gone from strength to strength. Playing out at packed out nightclubs and festivals stages, Stereoheroes is a force to be reckoned with. They are currently working on a new EP with South African MC Spoek Mathambo which is set to be a much anticipated release. They are planning on hitting Australian shores around mid May but are yet to secure a Perth date. I found that these guys sound a lot like Sound of Stereo, Felix Cartel and Zombie Nation to some extent. "Blackout" is a really nice dance floor banger.

Mr Flash - "Couscous"


The one and only Mr Flash is back. Being the first artist to be signed to Ed Banger Records you would expect big big things. Mr Flash is on the verge of releasing a new EP "Blood Sweat and Tears" and is set to be an awesome release. The track "Couscous" reminds me of the work he did on Mos Def's latest album "The Ecstatic". Its has a Middle Eastern vibe with a really nice kick drum to it and some added distortion towards the middle. Ive got this on repeat. Erol Alkan has given his tick of approval to the new EP. Looking forward to the rest of the tracks.

Mr Flash - "Blood Sweat and Tears" EP Tracklist:
A1 – Domino (part A) 
A2 – Domino (part B)

Flairs - "Radio (Jamaica Remix)"

I wasn't expecting this but Jamaica have done a rather nice remix of the Flairs track "Radio". Compared to the original the Jamaican boys have added a rather 1970's funk vibe to it with some added turntable spins and scratches. Loving it!

Nick Verway is back again with some very very nice deep house with the track "Apartment". The track feels very minimal but with the incorporation of a really nice but very subtle bass and a few snippets of vocals. The track is very much a Deep House track and im loving it. I feel like im sitting in a cafe drinking coffee when listening to this.

The Bloody Beetroots + Aston Shuffle = DESTROY

From Ministry of Sounds Australia The Reckless Side of Electro It has come to the attention of the Ministry of Sound that two of the most notorious gangs known to the establishment, The Bloody Beetroots and The Aston Shuffle have formed an unholy alliance which threatens to send the good citizens of Club Land into total anarchy.

In circumstances never before witnessed these two musical masterminds have created a weapon of unparalleled power known only by the name DESTROY. Possessing unprecedented sonic powers including the ability to melt the ears of the people of Club Land, intelligence suggests that the weapon will be implemented in a matter of weeks.

A statement made last night on behalf of the Alliance revealed alarming details:

“DESTROY is a musical force more hazardous than anything known to man, openly divulging the most reckless side of electro with two discs of razor sharp tracks. Drawing from an international network of co-conspirators including Boys Noize, D.I.M. & Tai, Kid Sister, Harvard Bass, Cassian, Simian Mobile Disco, Felix Da Housecat, Metronomy, Tiga and Proxy, DESTROY is the Alliances’ most deadly creation to date.”

Citizens are asked to exercise extreme caution in the coming weeks as it has been reported that underground supporters of the Destroy movement are infiltrating Club Land to further the Alliance’s reign of terror.

The Bloody Beetroots remain at large, most recently sighted at a remote European location. However, an anonymous tip off confirmed that The Aston Shuffle will be embarking on a sonic onslaught at select locations around the country this April.

After a reckless spree of illustrious remix work and a merciless radio invasion, The Aston Shuffle currently rank at #1 on The Ministry of Sound Justice Department Most Wanted list. Hailed by their followers as heroic outlaws for their blatant disregard of mainstream music conventions, The Aston Shuffle show no signs of ending their reign, with a debut release rumoured to be unleashed later in 2010.

But vying for the position of public enemy #1 is the elusive Bloody Beetroots. With an arsenal including the notorious Awesome and Warp which destroyed Australian radio in 2009, theirs is a story of alter-egos with an obsession for ruthless electro. This lawless faction is charged with responsibility for the current wave of anarchic underground tracks currently taking the world by storm alongside their numerous DIM MAK accomplices.

DESTROY is OUT APRIL 9

The Aston Shuffle - " I Wanna See You"

anouk_morgan_5.jpg

Aussie duo The Ashton Shuffle have just release their new single "I Wanna See You". The single is set to be released on Beatport on April 2nd with some remixes by Harvard Bass and DCUP. The track "I Wanna See You" could of easily been taken off MSTKRFTS album "The Looks" with some added rolling, grinding, dirty electro sound i love that reminds me of a lot like Boys Noize. Talk about the crazy German i'm not sure if they have sampled Boys Noize's track but i cant put my finger on what track it is. You'll know what i mean when your listen to the track, the sound is towards the end.

I thought id treat you guys and throw in the Harvard Bass remix! This remix is drenched in post-electro distortion, thumping base line but takes a step back with the lyircs and only throwing them in a few times. Its definitely up there in one of his best remixes.

Radio Slave - "Orchestrating Maneuvers In The Dark (Min & Patrick Lindsey Remix)"


To be honest i have no idea on how to best describe the track "Orchestrating Maneuvers In The Dark (Min & Patrick Lindsey Remix)". Lets just say its a fantastic blend of tech house, house and deep house. If your a fan of Dimitri from Paris, Gramophonedzie, Rockets and to a lesser extent The Juan MacLean this track is right up your alley. Apparently the Crookers are giving this track a bit of a whirl during their sets.

Burns - "Kiss N' Hold"

The track "Kiss N' Hold" is a fantastic balance of pure ecstasy and energy. From the thumping kick drum, solid bass and Surkin inspired synths, this track is a pure monster with an enormous amount of energy bursting from it seems. I don't know what it is about Burns but it reminds me of Justice. If your heading out to the Surkin gigs over the easter break, make sure you get there early and see Burns, he is a must see. Details on the Surkin and Burns gig's are below.

French wonder kid straight from WMC will be hitting Australian shores along with Burns this easter weekend treating Australian fans to a killer set. The sad thing is that neither Surkin or Burns will be heading to the west. Lets hope they can get back to Australia soon and include Perth as well. All the other tour dates can be found on the OneLove Blog. I manged to get hold of the title track from Surkin's new EP "Silver Island" and its sound completely different to the other tracks on the EP. It has a cheesy 80's vibe to it with some with some even more cheesier synths.

Les Petits Pilous - "Goog"


Les Petits Pilous are absolutely killing it with their new EP "Bielle". They've managed to get in the top 100 of Indie Dance/Nu Dance with the tracks "Goog", "Bielle" and "Booty Pills" sitting with in the top 5. I managed to get a hold of "Goog" and its another stellar track from the boys. The track "Goog" sounds a lot an A-Trak track, but with some added synths and kick drum. Got this on repeat atm. I think is easily the favourite from their EP.

Im a bit slow on posting this track but its better late than never. Coming off the Boys Noize Records "Miami Noize" EP the track is definitely not for the faint hearted. Its heavy, grungy, electro goodness track from the boys but it does incorporate some well worked in synth's and a voice sample that sound like they've been pulled out of a 1950's tv show.  The well constructed track contains the occasional "Woop" that strangely hooks you back in.

The Bloody Beetroots - "Domino (Spares of Romborama) Pt. 2 - EP"


Yes The Bloody Beetroots are back with their new EP "Domino (Spares of Romborama) Pt. 2 - EP". First cab off the rank is "Domino". My oh my this is a wonderful track, Sir Bob Rifo has returned with the classic Bloody Beetroots sound that made me fall in love with them for the first time. With a soothing and melodic intro, then at 1:45 the beat and kick drum drop and all hell brakes loose but still managing to keep that classic Bloody Beetroots sound. This track would get the crowd going nuts if you were to see The Bloody Beetroots Death Crew 77 Live. With the chaos and thumping kick drum that "Domino" brings "31 Seconds to Die" does the complete opposite. Although still keeping a nice kick drum, the track takes on a slow pace thats very similar to "Second Streets Have No Name" but with very little lyrics. After listening to this EP its definitely got me to reconsider to going to Creamfields here in Perth.

The EP is out exclusively on iTunes but its yet to be added to the Australian iTunes store :(
