since the emergence of the so called “fidget” or “fidget house” scene, its become somewhat of an addiction for me to listen to these certain tracks on full fucking volume ALL DAY. the phrase was supposedly coined by jesse rose and switch as a joke and it comes as no surprise that it has been questioned as a classification of the glitchy electro which has benn pioneered by the likes of crookers, the bloody beetroots, herve and fake blood over the past year(ish)……oh and obviously jesse rose and switch. for me it’s by far the most defined sub-genre in the massive expanse that is dance music. with its wobbly, rythmic, manic synth sound and bouncy electro beat, the one word that sums it all up is FIDGET. It’s music for ADD kids, it gives you so much and keeps you so excited for so long, leaving you with an unforgettable feeling of ecstacy and, of course, it is perfect music to dance to. here are some fidget tracks which i’m overplaying at the moment, obviously some have already been posted (everything by MUSTARD PIMP!)
the best 2 words to describe this track are bouncy and circuslike. What’s not to like.
shinichi osawa – the golden
this track is on the extremely talented jap’s album “The One”. a powerful, dirty fidget track.
you can always count on the don to pull out a lovely sounding fidget banger! this track just another reason to believe in him. i do……….
a trully wonderful tune. an essence of commercial dance but thats the beauty of it.
confession: I listened to this track ALOT in the last few months of 2008, so yeah i’m not playing it that much nowadays. The fact that it is such a fucking fidgety track and one of my favourites tunes, forced me to put it on. watch out for Mightyfools. partyjunkies is they’re new EP which sounds very very good with its essence of bassline. AND THEY’RE DUTCH!….weird. BUY MIGHTYFOOLS PARTYJUKIES EP!! …….its definately worth forking out some money for this one. the EP includes they’re own fucking sick originals, PLUS remixes by AC slater, heavyfeet, OH SNAP!!, boemklatsch and liam vizzle.
other artists to sink your teeth into are (obviously including the ones mentioned above) bryan cox (crux Records has alot of good stuff), lee mortimer (a.k.a. Sawtooth Sucka), stereoheroes, foamo, mikix the cat, jeff doubleu, tits & clits, heavyfeet and hijack. and just in case you haven’t been following this blog, MUSTARD PIMP (the best of the bunch).
