it's all about the PYTs...

ok, so i'm not the only one going crazy about these guys. palms out sounds even issued a "DON'T POST JUSTICE" request... but i'm weak. i came across a leak of † yesterday and i felt obliged to have a listen. and then listen again. and so forth. this is definitely a keeper. everything about it makes me smile, from the bombast of genesis to the upbeat happines of d.a.n.c.e., even uffie is making me happy again - "rockin' hi-tops and sayin NO to stilettos, cos i might get drunk off my ass and i don't wanna fall"... another track that's really killing me is stress, which i first heard on thursday night, a night before the trinity ball - when erol took over from gaspar and xavier, that was what he played. i'm certainly not the first person to notice this, but sampling stravinsky? ace...

Justice - Stress

alas this is my only decent photo of the lads...

trinners for winners... *pukes*

haha, there i was, thinking about playing something profoundly original and groundbreaking, when i remembered "i'm going to the trinity ball on friday - justice, erol, busy p, boys noize etc".... so i made this mix. i've listened to it a few times since, and, bar two dodgy transitions, i love it [/cocky]... i hope you do too.

i should really do this more often

finally got around to doing some ableton work after a long period of ableton-free-ness, what with my dissertation and all that. i started working on some tracks in and around the 100-115 bpm mark, and ended up with some tracks that worked quite nicely together. then walking home from low b last night i decided it needed some work, so i started again today. both mixes are quite similar, but the second one is a bit longer and has two tracks that aren't in the first. not sure which i prefer. although the pitbull/timbo combination isn't quite perfect... but at the same time i'm not sure how "street" it is to have the nelly and justin in there. lol, obv.

let me see those hands....

this isn't much of a departure from the original, but a-trak's remix of heart it races is nice. in other news, a-trak is playing the electric picnic, and listening to his mix with diplo from last year's sonar is getting me quite excited. have been giving that a lot of airplay in this good weather. check out this ten minute vid to peep the skills.
