I'm Shakin'

Well now. I got an iPhone just a few weeks ago and apparently the rumors are true: this shit is tight! One of the first things I did was get Pandora Radio and I was rewarded immediately. This lil’ old Fukkk Offf jam starting pumping out of my speakers and I soon found myself moving uncontrollably (much to the bewilderment of the family in the car next to me). This comes off of his Love Me Hate Me Kiss Me Kill Me album from ’09 which includes “Rave Is King”, a song I can only hope you’ve heard so I’ll post it too, along with the best remix, just in case.
Fukkk Offf - Love My Shake

Fukkk Offf - Rave Is King

This remix has become a staple in Moby’s DJ sets and is fittingly a rave anthem.

Mark Knight’s remix of perhaps the most classic house song of them all, You’ve Got The Love, has been atop the Beatport charts since its June release and for good reason. Apparently all proceeds are going to relief efforts in Japan so make sure to grab it here. Good for you Mark. 8 minutes of progressive breakdowns and builds are completed with bits of the original with a piano part, and a head-bobbing beat reminiscent of his work with Wolfgang Gartner in “Conscindo”.

Canadian group Azari & III will be releasing their newest single, Manic, on August 2nd. The limited Turbo 12” comes with the original and a few remixes by Maceo Plex, DJ Sneak, Borderline, and Finger Prince. The Finger Prince dub is my favorite and is a track I can see someone like Seth Troxler dropping. Overall it sounds almost nothing like the original. A simply layered intro evolves into an acid-laden beauty with a groove that seems to come out of nowhere. Just wait for the three minute mark.

Feed Me is relatively new to the scene, but has managed to make his mark in the genres of Dubstep and Electro relatively quickly. He leaves those influences out of this remix, however, treating us with a calm yet spectacular surprise. He still amps it up a bit from the original, but boy does this make you want to relax. Like a chill-pill for your ears.

Somewhere between Egypt and India, Jan Driver found the beat for this song. I feel like I’m lost somewhere in an eastern desert when I listen to it. Anyways, this song may be old, but Jan Driver is as relevant as ever. His 5 track “Amt” EP is set to be released on Boys Noize Records on August 1st and will set the tone for his debut album “Amatilda”, expected to come out in a month or so.

Now let’s segue into perhaps my favorite part of all this. Boys Noize and Erol Alkan teamed up not long ago to produce, Avalanche, yet another masterful product courtesy of the pair (see Lemonade, Death Suite). You may have seen some of the countless videos that feature Alex bombing a helpless crowd with the regular version, but I now bring to you the recently released vocal version. A spooky thumping persists as Jarvis Cocker’s recitation of Leonard Cohen’s ballad, Avalanche, fades in and out. Halloween’s come early.

In other BNR news, a young artist that goes by the name of SCNTST was just added to the label. 17 year old Bryan Müller has a lot of hype surrounding him so expect his upcoming EP to be something special. More on him later...
