More VV Brown! Plus free downloads from CLP and Don Diablo!
I don't think I have too much to say, as I've posted VV Brown recently... BUT... it does seem to be that you guys enjoy her based on traffic. SO now you get a Style Of Eye remix of the new single "Leave"...
Indeed this is the "finest in modern techno" as listening to it made me want to mix it with a Charles Manier track :)
VV Brown- "Leave (Style Of Eye Remix)"
Here's some press...
VV Brown has been rising in the public eye since her appearance on Later With Jools Holland on the BBC late last year. Since then she’s toured with The Ting Tings and been to Africa with Damon Albarn’s Afrika Express
She made the top 10 of the BBC’s Sound of 2009 poll in January, alongside Empire of the Sun and Little Boots
This Style of Eye vocal mix from the Swedish maestro has been praised by Fake Blood, Kissy Sell Out, Brodinski and Busy P (who called it ‘the finest in modern techno’)
Other remixes on this package include Little Boots (featuring Little Boots!) and Simon Bassline
VV Brown’s debut album ‘Travelling Like The Light’ is out in May 2009.
While I'm here... Chris De Luca of CLP has something to share with you... yeah it's not British but... I'm piggybacking on a Brit post so it works :) Plus y'all love him anyway...
Two tracks from his upcoming EP are from "Supercontinental" the CLP album that ignited the hearts and dancing feet of the whole blogosphere... the new EP has remixes from Bugati Force (Exploited), Housemeister (Boysnoize Rec., AYCB), Litwinenko (Detroit Underground) & Unsportsmanlike (WMF Berlin). Pretty unstoppable there... here's a little gift from CLP to you!
CLP- "Dip Shorty (Unsportsmanlike Remix)"
CLP feat. Kovas - Homecourt / Dip Shorty EP, 12"/Digital - Shitkatapult (Strike 101)
A1. Homecourt (CLP Double Dutch Mix)
A2. Homecourt (Bugati Force A Rabiata Mix)
B1. Dip Shorty (Original Mix)
B2. Dip Shorty (Housemeister Eurodance Mix)
bonus remixes (digital only):
Dip Shorty (Unsportsmanlike Remix)
Homecourt (Litwinenko Remix)
"The only German word I know is Scheise"!!!
Brooklyn based producer, remixer (Timberlake, De La Soul...) and Mc KOVAS hits the point.
Shitkatapult´s 101st release honours the Ghetto Beat, a wild mixture of Rap, Hip Hop, Booty Bass, Favela and Techno by CLP featuring KOVAS. Two German producers and one nyc rapper posse up to deliver "HOMECOURT/DIP SHORTY" as a
multi-cultural musical hot pot in order to push the idea behind CLP´s great SUPERCONTINENTAL album to ignore all limits whether locationwise or musicwise.
A Side "HOMECOURT" appears as an exclusive new mix by CLP themselves, who stripped down the vocals into dub areas.
Cut up fragments, steaming beats, screaming arrangements for all neo-dancefloors from Sao Paulo´s backstreets to
hamburg´s golden pudel club. A2 showcases a maximum eurodance supermega remix of HOMECOURT by Berlin´s
nasty techno darling HOUSEMEISTER (bpitch, all you can beat etc) who shows us a good dressing down. This is dancefloor.
B Side opens up with the funky album version of "DIP SHORTY" and gets completed by the young Berlin beat jugglers of
BUGATI FORCE (Exploited). BUGATI FORCE actually ARE the overkill of Neo-Rap history of tomorrow in any concern.
Their "DIP SHORTY" remix is pure and clever fun.
Then while I'm off format... let's get in all this Don Diablo I haven't been able to post :)
Dude has been BLOWING UP the blogosphere and I know you guys love his stuff so... if I have an excuse to post why not, yeah?
 Don Diablo - "Teen Scream Machine (Short Edit)"
No, it's not the new Wes Craven grindhouse flick...! ''Teen Scream Machine'' is a new banger, taken from one of Don Diablo's (www.myspace.com/dondiablo) forthcoming e.p's. It's like running from a predator, who keeps breathing down your neck and whispers: "You know that things will never be the same again". Still very early days on this release, as Don and his label are still in the process of commissioning remixes for this release. DJ friendly version + remixes to be released soon...!
 Don Diablo vs Missy Elliot - "Working Out Is Overrated"
No, this is not an official collaboration between Don Diablo (www.myspace.com/dondiablo) and Missy Elliot (www.myspace.com/missyelliot), rather the brainchild of Don Diablo with one of Missy's acapellas. With Missy's new album "Block Party" coming soon, Don felt it was fitting to mash things up, so he could get deep, down and dirty with Missy. Bang your head to this bitches!
 "Don Diablo - Like a Pro"
Don Diablo (www.myspace.com/dondiablo) is a man on a mission, a mission to destroy global speakersystems like a madman. His latest weapon, ''Like a Pro'', is a distorted disco gem with a load of funk to back it up. Play it loud, rock it hard and dance to it like a pro...! Also keep an eye out for his forthcoming ''Too cool for school" e.p., which is currently getting the remix treatment by ''Trevor Loveys'' and Soulwax' favorites ''In Flagranti''...more info on this soon!
 Walter Meego - "Girls (Don Diablo Remix)"
Don Diablo (www.myspace.com/dondiablo) is one of the most in demand remixers of the moment! This time around, he beefed up Walter Meego's forthcoming single "Girls", giving it the trademark Don Diablo dirty bassline sounds with a heavy break to steer the crowd into a frenzy. Single out on Bandroom Records now.
 Don Diablo - "Black Heat"
While Don Diablo (www.myspace.com/dondiablo) is putting the finishing touches on his forthcoming artist album, "Life is a festival", he's putting out some club bangers. This week will see the release of "Streets of Fire" and next week, February 9, will see the release of "Black Heat"; a catchy crossover fidget-electro-funk monster with an attitude. You can download the original version of "Black Heat" right here, right now! "Black Heat" also comes with a smashing remix by Australian producer Whitenoise, but if you want that one, you'll have to wait a week and get it from one of the many download portals (Beatport / iTunes / eMusic / etc.) or you can order the vinyl at your specialist record shop. Early support from: Freeform 5, Laidback Luke, and Groove Armada, to name but a few.
 Don Diablo - "Never Too Late (Jark Prongo Remix) (Don's Late Nite Dub Edit)"
Don Diablo (www.myspace.com/dondiablo) decides to share a special edit with you, which he plays in his own sets. It's an edit of a Jark Prongo Remix for one of his singles on his forthcoming artist album "Life is a festival". Grab this teaser quickly, as this special edit will not be released. The original Jark Prongo remix will be released in a few months. Jark Prongo AKA Chocolate Puma AKA The Good Men, known for their smash "Give it Up".
 Newton Faulkner - Dream catch me (Don Diablo Remix)"
Newton Faulkner (www.myspace.com/newtonfaulkner) went from being one of the most buzzed about DIY artists to one of the most striking musical arrivals in 2007, when he unleashed his debut album "Handbuilt By Robots", which has since gone multi-platinum and has reached number one chart status. Newton Faulkner now sells out shows all over the place. It doesn't happen too often that singer songwriters get remixed, but check out Don Diablo's (www.myspace.com/dondiablo) remix of one Newton Faulkner's biggest songs to date, "Dream Catch Me".
 Don Diablo - "Blow (Don Diablo's Sellout Sessions Dub)"
Last year Don Diablo's massive hiphouse tune "Blow" found supporters from all accross the board, including the likes of Pete Tong & Fatboy Slim. The original and remixes by Sébastien Léger and Mason have been tearing up clubs and blowing up speakers all over the globe. More recently Don Diablo (www.myspace.com/dondiablo) made an exclusive mix to play out in his own sets. Ever since, punters have been storming up to the DJ booth asking for this track, which is not widely available. Now, however, you can now download "Don Diablo's Sellout Sessions Dub" of "Blow" and bang it out yourself!
OK! Hopefully if you were short on music, now you're full up! I've gotta go tend to the normal world but enjoy, please comment, hit me up on Twitter unless you hate me, and I'll be back soon (presumably with that Commix interview!
