Deux Helix, FNGRLCKN + SOx

I love it when a tracks name tells you all you need to know about the song. Case in point Deux Helix's latest thrasher Psychosis.

FNGRLCKN drops a sweet new edit of the oftened remixed Mind Demension by Tiga but the piano makes this stand out above most.

I still haven't been able to fully get into Passion Pit's feel good geeky sound but I enjoyed this uplifting remix from unkown SOx of their indie hit Little Secrets. ps. SOx if you have a page I could link to you please let me know dude!

Dave Nada - Live at FBI 20-11-2008

Dave Nada is without a doubt one of America's premier DJ's, an upcoming producer and one half of the dynamic duo known as Nadastrom. It is fair to say his style is fairly hard and he is one of the major torch bearers of the hard Bmore club sound. So you will know what to expect when you check this 30 minutes mix out he did for FBi radio while in Australia last year. Luckily for us Dave will be touring with the We Love Sounds festival, no word yet on any sideshows but keep your eyes peeled on his MySpace for any news

More Mr Disorder + Hookie + Mix CD

Some fresh new music coming out from Sydney's biggest and best party crew - Starfuckers. First up we have Mr Disorder and Hookie tag team for a banging electro take on the X-Files theme that would make Mulder and Scully proud and a solo Hookie outing which has a great 90's eurodance feel to it (the 90s revival is the next big thing in dance music, trust me!).


The guys at Starfuckers have just sent through their latest mix CD entitled Thick as Thieves.

Deux Helix

I often get a lot of tracks from new producers. Most don't stack up but once in a while you stumble on an Algeronics and Luny P. I have to say hearing Deux Helix's Dimension IX gave me a buzz I haven't yet had from a new artist.  Daft Punk fans will see the influence of the duo on the track which is the highlight of what Deux Helix has done so far. The American duo bring a psychadelic mood over grinding electro beats which have me excited for future offerings. Watch this space.

Booka Shade - JJJ Mix Up 08-11-2008

Wikipedia claims that Booka Shade are German electrohouse duo, well I don't agree with that but they certainly are German and their melodic beats have that German tech touch. I would dscribe their style as an anthemic club banger crossed over with a melancholy melodies dressed in a dark and brooding suit. This set which features alot of acts from their Get Physical label is the perfect come down mix after a big night out, which I think I've said about a lot of mixes on the blog!

01. The Weathermen - Poison (pias)
02. Jamie Jones & Simon Baker – KasKazi (get digital)
03. Patrice Bäumel - Javelin (get physical)
04. Matthew Dear - Free To Ask (get physical)
05. Stimming - Funkworm (diynamic)
06. Booka Shade - Sweet Lies / Booka’s Easy Way Out Mix (get physical)
07. David Keno - Discoteca (kindisch)
08. Human League - Being Boiled (virgin)
09. SIS - Nesrib - ( cécille )
10. M.A.N.D.Y. vs Booka Shade - O Superman / Audiofly Remix (get physical)
11. Rheingold - 3klangsdimensionen (welt rekord)
12. Carlos Peron - Her Head Is Bräkin Intu Foör / kelvin maximix (revisited records)
13. Einzelkind - Out With A Bang (kindisch)

Sweat It Out!

Its Monday night in Sydney and as I'm recovering from a big weekend I'm thinking about how crazy the past few months have been. When I started my little blog I just wanted to share all the cool mixes I'd collect out the blog world. But I've been lucky and my little side project has gotten me in touch with lots of cool peeps. None cooler than the guys from Sweat It Out, who are well just in my opinion the finest and coolest dance music label in the world. After some initial side glances and flirting we have consumated our affair and our now joined at the proverbial hip.

In english that means I have been promoting the labels new releases and doing what I can on the marketing end which is like the coolest gig in the world! Anyways that is just an update on why new posts and mixes have been so sparse but I promise it will be fixed starting tomorrow with a Booka Shade set. In the meanwhile check out some of the dope Sweat It Out stuff already out on Beatport.

Some of the future releases in store are Ajax epic first ep, new Act Yo Age ep plus their mix CD, debut ep from hot new diskohause wizkid DCUP, some crazy beats from the mysterious Yolanda Be Cool aka next big thing and much more! Plus we will have t-shirts, crazy parties and even soon! Fun times. Ok time to for some rest!
