Due to a prolonged festive period, and idleness, we haven’t done a post in yonks! Sorry about that, we’ve got a best of 2009 post coming soon, we hope. In the meantime, here’s some tasty tracks.

Black Noise

Hey folks. Sorry for the criminal lack of posts recently. My excuse is that my laptop is broken and mediafire doesn’t work on my uni’s internet system. Yeah so I’m pretty fucked. Luckily a flat mate is very kind enough to lend me his laptop for this post and I’ll do some direct links. Here is Black Noise. Absolutely loving these guys at the moment, producing sick catchy basslines and keeping the fidget electro sound alive. Also, check out the other banging Black Noise tracks we’ve posted if you haven’t already!

DUCK SAUCE – ANYWAY (BLACK NOISE DISCO MIX)

DUCK SAUCE – ANYWAY (BLACK NOISE BASSLINE MIX)

BLACK NOISE – KNOCK YOU OUT (KICK IT VIP)

TONKA – JACK TRACK (BLACK NOISE VIP REMIX)

 

BLACK NOISE MYSPACE

COSMIC SOUNDS

cosmic_ray_supernova

the world is so overrun with bass right now. it leaks and oozes from every little dark corner. it glows and wobbles and slurs, and brains itself against walls and sprays gunk and queasyness. us wizards are among the biggest supporters of this movement, but i think hidden cat’s sound is very refreshing when faced by the overwhelming amount of wobble and wonk and fuzz that fills the world 

THERE IS NO DEATH BY BASS !!!

BUT RIDICULOUSLY CATCHY UPLIFTING SQUEAKS OF LIGHT !!!

——————–

HIDDEN CAT – HINTS

[banging intro gives way to a shiny connection of sounds in an awesome array of brilliance]

HIDDEN CAT – SUPERFUTURE

[energetic chopped up samples with an incredible disco vibe that spells of joy to come]

BELINDA CARLISLE – HEAVEN IS A PLACE ON EARTH (HIDDEN CAT REMIX)

[i dont really know what to say…this is funny]

music for sunday morning is very bloody key for a nice day – so i have compiled a pile of stuff to ease you into life and build you up slowly until you are dancing and breaking furniture amd ready to FIGHT! here goes…

radiohead – nude [floaty voiced strange melody like you could imagine the mermaids hypnotising odysseus with- it could put you into a coma it is so relaxing]

dj shadow – building steam with a grain of salt [dj shadow is just fucking cool and this shows it. makes me go all b-boy]

young & company – i like (what you’re doing to me) [A CLASSIC disco jaunt to liven up those limbs]

sister sledge – we’re lost in music [a huge proportion of legs should now be grooving]

heartsrevolution – ultraviolence (dubka remix) [damn cool 80’s tv theme tune remix – POWER GUITAR, BABES, BEACH………..YEAAAAH SUNDAY!!!]

——————

and our good friends the ICE BLACK BIRDS have sent us their brand shiny new song ‘ca bouge’  and it is damn brilliant so GET IT!!!! if you missed their other material —-IT IS VERY WORTH OBTAINING ANYBODY WHO CONSIDERS THEMSELVES A WORTHY ROCK N ROLL BEAST! – HERE. and take literally one second to vote for their place at snowbombing festival 2009 HERE.

ca bouge

must be the music

[Kiss+FM.jpg]

back in the day – i’ve heard – kiss fm was theeee radio station. the supreme purveyors of disco in new york city throughout the 70s and 80s, kiss’s resident deejay shep pettibone began the remix. with his famous mastermixes of pretty much every disco beast the MASTERMIX MASTER SHEP PETTIBONE is insane. if you dont like disco you should. but these will help!

jeanette “lady” jay  – come let me love you (shep’s mastermix)

secret weapon – must be the music (shep’s mastermix)

nick straker band – a little bit of jazz (shep’s mastermix)

RAFFERTIE STRIKES AGAIN!

yet again raffertie amazes me. he’s improving every day through a rigorous schedule of dj sets around the land. he’s recieved massive support from radio 1 experimental (i think thats what 2-4am is called) and the VIP version of his song stomping grounds is just absolute proof of his insane talent. seriously listen to the laugh right at the end. pure insanity…..i give you…………………………

RAFFERTIE – STOMPING GROUNDS VIP 

it’s absolutely insane, an evolution in his sound, such an improvement and an absolute stomper… he builds churning dubstep wobbles into a cacophony of bassy wobbles and cut up vocals……and it’s made me so happy because….i’m gonna see him on the 6th of february. CHEW THE FAT. corsica studios. fake blood, foamo, a1 bassline, raffertie!!!!! sure to be a great one. four insane artists. what a line up! enjoy raffertie. and also as a bonus here’s i only wanna be with bass by the amazing squire of gothos. another fine song. built with a spectacularly cheesy vocal hook and lots and lots of bass. 

the squire of gothos – i only wanna be with bass
