Carl Craig’s remix of Alter Ego’s “Gary” is one of those songs that I absolutely love and can’t get out of my head, but I think doesn’t get the appreciation it deserves. It is one of those songs that can be played by legendary DJs such as Carl Craig and John Digweed night after night, but never be posted on all the hipster blogs that now seem to focus solely on Electro music. Even if you don’t like truely ‘Techno’ music I think you need to give this song a listen. Remember to support your artists! Peace & Beats

Modeselektor is a young and hip duo, or trio, (Not really sure since there was three of them at Coachella) from Berlin. Unlike most of the music I seem to hear coming out of Germany, Modeselektor is far less minimal even though the are signed to Ellen Allien’s Bpitch label. “Hasir” is probably my favorite track from their 2005 album Hello Mom! DL the track below, but remember to support your artists and buy the album. Peace & Beats

I have been in the mood to listen to progressive house lately. I can credit a lot of it to seeing Sasha & John Digweed tear it up at Coachella.  Martin Roth’s remix of “Sensation Seekers” is awesome. Even though I think Electro’s popularity is going to continue to grow and far outpass the number of fans of Progressive House; I think Progressive House is here to stay, unlike Electro.

If you haven’t heard DiskJokke’s new album Stayin In then check it out. The track “Folk I Farta” is outstanding! You’re a fool if you don’t buy it. 

DL “Folk I Farta” HERE YOU LUCKY BASTARD (Zshare)

 

Booka Shade is one of my favorite groups of all time. I was so exited to finally see them live at Coachella. Its too bad they had to play so damn early. Especially when guys like Danny Tenaglia get two hour long sets right afterwards! I am sorry Tenaglia fans, but I just don’t think he is anything great. Booka Shade’s new song “Charlotte” is great however. I challenge everyone to name a song coming out this month that can beat it. Just like Movements and their DJ Kicks album, I am sure their upcoming album The Sun & The Neon Light (Get Physical) is going to be an instant classic as well. I think it is. You must check out this song! Peace & Beats

Jam out to “Charlotte” Here

Riva Starr‘s EP was released a little over two months ago, a long time to many bloggers, but not me. Scratch N’ Itch is still one of the freshest Electro/Tech-House albums I have heard in a long time. Listening to it has encouraged me to check out more from Southern Fried Records. Riva Starr is right up there with Dusty Kid when it comes to my favorite artists from the label. I still think Crookers are overrated though. Im exited for Starr’s new EP War Drums which is scheduled to drop in June. Peace & Beat
