Post Glasto Post

blur

Glastonbury was an experience beyond explanation. So much amazing, strange, fun, trippy, euphoric, chilled, banging stuff going on. You could stay in the dance village and dance all day, or chill at the stone circle with a spliff, or go and get stuck in to the best bands the world has to offer, and SO MUCH MORE. Blur was my highlight, having been into them in my childhood and now just appreciating how diversive and musically brilliant they are. Damon Albarn cried on stage which got me going as well!

Animal Collective were out of this world. All of their songs were mixed into one long, dreamy trip with tight singing harmonies and synths. The light show they put on was entrancing and I found myself doing some real hippy dancing throughout the whole thing. ‘Brother Sport’ was the closing song and as thats my absolute favourite, I left on an obscene high!Apart from that, out of the actual bands, I saw Spinal Tap who were hilarious!

The dance village was my home. The weekend was kicked off early on thursday with Raffertie who filled out the Dance Lounge (huge) and as this was one of the only acts on at the time. But he was insane, luring in the unknowing crowd with classic dance tunes and then dropping them into dirty bassline, what a way to start Glasto! I’m not quite sure what days all the rest of the dance acts were on as its a bit of a blur at the moment! But I do remember that we saw Skream & Benga who obviously didn’t dissapoint. Rusko got his bass guitar out and Joker (directed towards by Skream when I bumped into him, hopefully not to get me to fuck off!) was probably my favourite dubstep act. Managed to catch the end of Don Diablo who was well into it before Jack Beats which was pretty empty but fucking awesome as he played all his own tracks (incedently, I heard ‘UFO Khole bass’ three times over the weekend!!). Scratch Perverts was a let down due to their speakers fucking up even though they had a sick set. Wow loads of others, Deadmau5 was BANGing and Zinc had Benga bigging him up on stage which added to the great atmosphere his sounds produced. Oh, and of course Crookers who got the whole tent stomping even though at one point the speakers fucked up. Annie Mac was very excellent as well playing the best of all genres whilst Caspa played some evil, alien dubstep. Basically the dance village was a massive rave with constant floor fillers of every dance sub genre pumping out all day and night.

As we haven’t been able to bring the tunes, here’s a tasty selection mostly including artists we saw, so it does relate to Glasto a bit?!

TOTALLY ENORMOUS EXTINCT DINOSAURS – BOURNEMOUTH

Firstly we have a euphoric sexy synth driven tune with some funky bass, resolving into a great house track.

JESSE ROSE – TOUCH MY HORN (CROOKERS REMIX)

Now a new Crookers remix, jackin house to the max with horns!

MAJOR LAZER – PON DE FLOOR

One of the classic tunes at the moment. Heard it so many times at Glasto to my great delight. Major Lazer is taking over the blogosphere in a big way.

LA ROUX – TIGERLILY (B.RICH REMIX)

A dirty dirty dubstep remix of La Roux. Quite similar to all the other of its kind but don’t we just fucking love it!

ZINC – SUBMARINES

LA ROUX – BULLETPROOF (ZINC REMIX)

Zinc is another guy taking over the blogosphere and rightly so with a new sub-genre dubbed ‘crack house’ by the man himself. Formerly known for producing drum ‘n’ bass, he’s been converted to the house side of dance and thank the lord for that. Much the same as Hostage who produces banging electro wobble today after being a d’n’b head.

BEAT ASSASSINS – BOOM STYLE (AC SLATER REMIX)

On the subject of convertion from d’n’b to electro, AC Slater has converted ‘Boom Style’ into some funky, bassy electro. GO ON MY SON!

DJ LOVEBOAT – OH THE BASS!

Sexy techno/electro. Clean, punchy drums have a stabby bass to get you moving.

THE ROOTS VS. DON DIABLO – THE SEED 3.0

MICHAEL JACKSON  – ROCK WITH YOU (DON DIABLO REMIX)

Not just posting bangers here. The Roots vs. Don Diablo is very cool and respect for MJ on the other Don track.

COMPANY C – GHETTO BASS MIX

The mixtape was sent to us by a dude called Company C and its very well mixed with loads of our faves Jack Beats and A1 Bassline.

Tracklisting:

Get Down – Jack Beats

Its What you do to me (jack beats remix) – Steed Lord

What (Dub) – Jack beats Ft Mc Dynamit

Where’s My Money (Caspa Remix – Jack Beats Re-Edit) – TC

Hooligans (A1 Bassline Remix) – Don Diablo & Example

Back of the Van (A1 Bassline Remix) – Ladyhawke

Don’t Let Go (A1 Bassline Radio Edit) – Yo Majesty

Like to Freak (DJ Bam Bam Remix) – Kelevra

It’s Going Down – Lee Mortimer & Foamo         

Manabadman (Andy George Re-Fix) – Toddla T

Thats all from me, we’ll see a lot more posting from ‘The Wizard’ now he’s finished his exams which is very exciting!

LONG LIVE GLASTONBURY!

PEACE
