The famous Carl Craig does a slow bass driven remix of Hot Chip’s “One Life Stand.”

Great video by some great dudes. The Acid Girls have been all over the blogosphere for the past couple of years but it really took me seeing them live at SXSW this year for me to really appreciate there skills. These guys have the good mixing skills and right vibe to really put on a fun show. They are definitely worth seeing if they come to your neck of the woods.

Possibly. I say unlikely. Fuck the radio regardless

You know them by now. You love them already

Orbital has been around ages. K only a couple of decades, but I am sure some of their select tunes will be timeless. “Halcyon + On + On” is one of the first electronic tracks I listened to as a kid. I remember hearing it while watching the movie Hackers. I am not sure that movie will stand the test of time, but I promise the track will.

Another great track of Orbital’s  I recommend is “Belfast.”

There is even a track Pitchfork acknowledges. “Chime” was listed in their Pitchfork 500 list.

Great Aphex Twin track set to some cool, gruesome in a way, video clips.

A couple of cool t-shirts from MHI by Maharishi

The Pop Girl Tee” by Insight. $40

“The Kick It Tee” by Insight
“A Opened Mind tee” by imaginery foundation. $30


So I’m not sure if this t-shirt is a big joke or not, but who the fuck would pay $45 for one of these shirts? My suggestion is to save your cash.

Also here is a video that I just wathced and thought it was pretty cool, but I wasn’t into the song really. I came across it on a nother website that was bashing nu-rave.

It’s time to get hyper to the “Bass Bass Drum.” Signed to Ellen Allien’s label, Bpitch Control, Modeselektor released their second album “Happy Birthday!” late in 2007. Modeselektor is a German duo composed of Gernot Bronsert and Sebastian Szary. By no means would I put “Happy Birthday!” in my top ten list of albums from last year. That’s because there are 17 tracks on the album when there should only be about 10. If the duo chose to slim down the track list then the whole album would just be brilliant! However, considering they made the album in some kind of mobile recording studio you have to be more impressed than disappointed. The album transcends all genres. If you are looking for electronica tracks then check out “Godspeed,” “Happy Birthday” and “Deboutonner” featuring Siriusimo. Hip-Hop fans check out “Let Your Love Grow” and the “The Dark Side of the Sun.” Or if you are more into Dubstep & Grime; “Hyper Hyper” is fantastic. Techno fans should download “Sucker Pin” and “Black Block.” So, as you can see there is a wide variety of genres in “Happy Birthday!” There is even a track with radiohead’s Thom Yorke titled “The White Flash. I think they will put on one hell of a live show so we all should be hoping they go on a tour in the U.S. before they play Coachella this year.

Mr. Oizo

So, I’m really into the whole electro thing right now. I know half of you think it is just a fad, and the other half just don’t know anyone out there besides Justice. Well let me introduce you to Mr. Oizo. Mr. Oizo is yet another French producer now signed to the out of control, and also French, music label Ed Banger. I first got into him listening to the Transsexual-Patrick 122 EP released in 2007. The track “Ovoma” has a dark, 80’s, and Kavinsky like feel to it. The top track on the EP however is “Patric 122.” It’s choppy, french house, and electro all in one. Not to mention the amazing saxaphone part! Can anyone tell me the last time they heard something like this before? Mr. Oizo also has two great breaks tracks(“Monday Massacre” and “Sick Dog Try To Speak”) and a nice electro house number with the title track on Flat Beat (1999). It is probably his best record. All three tracks are solid.
