We Proudly Serve

Accompanied by this excellent track by Pixelord, is an equally (if not more) striking visual treat.  The video for 'Been Lookin' came out just days before the release of his Supaplex EP.  With a combination of smooth and stimulating graphics and samurai movie footage, this video has a strange yet alluring element.  Video editing/directing credit goes to Dan Hankinson.  View below.

"Operating from an undisclosed location deep within the dungeonz of the innanetz" ... Mack Blajick, aka "Oh My!", gives us a nice and smooth original garage track.  A detuned vocal hook coupled nicely with the full bodied synth underbelly sets a sexy late night vibe for your dance floor or your bedroom.  The plethora of percussive instruments is a nice touch, keeping the track interesting and diverse.

More Mack Blajick.  This time you're getting a hi-hat filled juke track that is your typical 4am AC-less warehouse jerker.


Bonus Round

Aluna George's silky voice....

Love, Patrick

Hallo!  Here's...  some stuff...  for you to listen to... or whatever.

First up tonight is a nice little techno diddy by Hamburg, Germany based Yør.  Recently released on the Purple Maze label, this crunchy track features an extremely high level of white noise, giving it an atmospheric dream-like aura.  The pulsing forward motion of this track has the momentum to feel like it really took you on a journey.  Enjoy da free downloadz.


Have a penchant for great production and rap music?  Try out this trap rap beat muzik power hour mix by TNGHT, comprised of legendary Hudson Mohawke and Lunice.  Ayyye 

Love, Patrick

Future Funk

"We don't really need a crowd to have a party, Just a funky beat and you to get it started."

Off of Purity Ring's recent (absolutle fire) debut album Shrines. I highly recommend you go buy the whole thing if you haven't already (here).

The Magician: making the 80s seem cool again.
download: Sebastien Tellier - Cochon Ville (The Magician Remix)

These next two are two based and bassed-out garage style remixes. Love em, bump em, do anything with em, but whatever you do make sure you play em loud.
download: BRANKO - Going In Hard feat. Dominique Young Unique (French Fries Remix)

download: Kanye West ft. Big Sean, Pusha T & 2 Chainz - Mercy (D.Fine Remix)

I have to disclaim that this one is only 192kbps since this is a song that only exists on vinyl, BUT I will say it's definitely worth grabbing since it's absolutely gorgeous. Done by the mysterious producer 'N' for a special release on Exploited, grab the vinyl HERE. (by the way the producer is Noir)
download: N - Lucy In The Sky With Pearls (Original Mix)

In A Dream

I'll begin this post the way I seem to begin many summer days. Out of a grogginess; out of a haze: out of the dream world and into the sun of the day. Pyramid is a young artist from France whose hallucinatory brand of hip-hop inflected electronic music conveys that essence perfectly in the form of this remix. Start listening from the beginning and you'll see what I mean; the ideal song to have bubbling out of the speakers as you drift back to reality.
download: Lifelike & Popular Computer - Getting High (Pyramid Remix)

Our friend Yooj (of Berlin by San Fran fame) has two big things going on right now that you need to know about. Firstly he gave away this super smooth track for free a couple weeks ago for anyone who likes his facebook page:

and secondly, his 'I Took You In' EP came out the other week on Not Bad Music - needless to say we're pretty excited about it. Each of the two original tracks are dark and sleazy in all the ways that make them perfect for a pulsing dancefloor sometime after 3AM, while the Ron Costa remix adds its own degree of techy flavor to the mix as well. Preview it below and grab the whole thing off Beatport.

To keep things going with the morning theme from earlier, this Paul Kalkbrenner track is another one I've been finding myself throwing on repeat whenever I want to wake up. Simple, raw elements mesh together to form a pulse of energy that constantly builds and crescendos over the 8 minutes of the track.
download: Paul Kalkbrenner - Altes Kamuffel (Original Mix)

Check it as the opening track in this rather awesome live documentary..

I saw Eric Prydz at the Palladium in LA last month (absolutely incredible) and it completely reawakened my love for the swede's banging style of progressive electro. This classic bootleg is definitely from the harder end of his discography..
download:Eric Prydz vs Pink Floyd - Proper Education (Original Mix)

Two equally monstrous remixes, one of Gesaffelstein and one by Gesaffelstein. Future Rave.
download: Zombie Zombie - Rocket Number 9 (Gesaffelstein Remix)

download: Gesaffelstein - Hatred (David Caretta Remix)

I recently came across this free Mosca EP and was really impressed by what the UK garage producer could accomplish within a more traditional house structure. Smooth, unadulterated rhythm with sweetly soulful influences.
download: Mosca - The Way We Were (Original Mix)

Stay Classy,
