GET YOUR FIX!!

gifvaliumbs2First of all really sorry if the picture gave you the impression that we have Valium by Mustard Pimp, we don’t. We could get you a poor quality version but its not really worth it, you can do that yourself if your that desperate, I know I am! Instead just some more essential tracks that the Wizards have stumbled upon.

Boemklatsch – Bonafied (Mightyfools Remix) A banging feel good fidget remix, not one which will make your ears bleed or scares your granny, just a well constructed electro track with some tasty hooks.

Stereoheroes – Poundcakes Stompy, playful and mad is how most of Stereoheroes’ stuff pans out…. and boy do we love it! One of the French superhero group’s  best.

Crookers – What Up Y’all The kings of fidget (sorry Crookers but its true) produce an nice hook using metallic synthesiser sounds. It definately grows on you.

Mightyfools – Addict Best of the lot! Lulls you into a false sense of security with an Ibiza-esque build up and female vocal samples, then drops you into a dark, muddy, wobbly bass in your motherfucking face….place. We really love Mightyfools. Addict is from their Partyjunkies EP which we’ve already talked about in an earlier post. Please fish out some loose change for it cos its worth it, Amsterdam is the best track on it, even better than this one!

Hot Chip – Hold On (D.I.M. Remix) D.I.M.!! WHERE HAVE YOU BEEN! If you are expecting the usual D.I.M. banger, it ain’t, but don’t be dissapointed. Its still got elements of older material like the clean drums and great rhythms, but where it lacks intensity, it gains melodic quality.

Fagget Fairys – Samo Ti (A1 Bassline Remix) Garage/Bassline/Fidget. Its all here! The young London lad has got so much to offer, this is one of his older, rarer remixes. I love it when the bass comes in! No I really do in this one.

Djedjotronic feat. Spoek – Dirty and Hard (Stereoheroes Remix) Some more hardcore yet cheeky hooks. Stereoheroes also know how to work those vocal samples. Superb!

this has been a really wild year. really incredible. i mean really, i have had so much fun. shit IT HAS BEEN UNBELIEVABLE! and i’ve done so much! i’ve seen europe, well some of it.. barcelona, antwerp.. benicassim! literally the best summer in time, and in terms of music what a year. electro – well we have our own playlist for that so i think it speaks for itself.. BUT the rest of it! brilliant. 

so many small acts coming big- i mean blogging – it has just been huge – the reality of internet hype – making somebody big in minutes.wowzer

so here it starts// i’ve tried to keep it down but i think you’ll agree a year is a very long time-  – – and sorry i have missed out SO much but i’ve had to be selective. and in terms of massive labels/massive artists of course – they dont need posting – kings of leon, HOT CHIP, vampire weekend, BENGA, fleet foxes, lykke li, JUSTICE, cut copy, MG-BLOODY-MT….holy mazoly.
