A new compilation for you to download and cherish! Woo-hoo!
This one includes a nice mix of old and new tracks, including Fot I Hose from Casiokids, a Jesse Rose remix of Kenneth Bager and the best eighties-sounding cut around at the moment from Let's Go Outside.
Nalepa - Monday (The Glitch Mob Remix), 6:29
Bjork - Dull Flame Of Desire (Modeselektor's Remix For Girls), 6:14
In similar fashion, Modeselektor transform a fairly tame Bjork duet with Antony Hegarty (of "Johnsons" fame) into a raving, trance anthem... real quality
Casiokids - Fot I Hose, 2:55
Fairly new to me is Casiokids, a Norwegian group numbering eight or nine. In their own words they say: "old analogue and trashy keyboards, pop melodies and a digital & shadow puppet theatre make up the Norwegian electro-troupe that is Casiokids". This track is a really catchy, 3 minute, pop gem
Luomo - Love You All (With Sascha Ring), 7:12
Sascha Ring, the lead singer with Apparat has a beautiful voice and on this collaboration with Luomo we've got a match made in heaven
Tiga - Mind dimension (Original mix), 5:41
This was suprisingly quite challenging to get into at first, with it's insistent dirty bass and mix of high-pitched and low-pitched vocals but it's one of those tracks that takes time to appreciate. As a result it fits well into this set, providing a challange for you too. Looking forward to Tiga's new album Ciao
Guy J - Druma, 5:10
One of the best tracks from Guy J's decent album from last year, Esperanza. It's a very melodic instrumental that builds and builds before petering out
Kenneth Bager - Fragment Seven (Les Fleurs) (Jesse Rose's Monday Afternoon Alternate Version), 5:31
Anyone familiar with the original Kenneth Bager version will appreciate this clever Jesse Rose mix as he removes the joyous chorus and instead focusses on the beat. I thought it provided the perfect sequence between the previous and next tracks
Let's Go Outside - I See You Dancing, 4:36
Oh this is a really amazing track. If Let's Go Outside's new album is anything close to this quality we'll have a classic in the making. The stabbing eighties synth and languid, almost-spoken vocals create a wonderfully melancholic mood
A1 Bassline vs Kavs Rave - Lucky Charms, 5:09
No, the compilation doesn't start getting dour after the last track; this bouncy blazer provides the perfect antidote to the morose I See You Dancing
Synthia - Madonher, 2:26
Hopefully ending on a high note, like this demo track from Synthia, will make you feel like listening to the whole mix again... well that's the idea. Pure pop disco
