Florence & The Machine- Rabbit Heart

Her name is Florence Welch and together they are Florence and the Machine.  You just get lost in this song with her sweet sweet voice and cool housy remix by Leo Zero. Looks like these guys will be busy with festivals in the UK this summer and their cd is out now.

rants, raves & reviews

prod-cooly-g-mainfirst up. holy fuck. i was shocked silly by this ep. mr. vonstroke was a bunch of other things to me other than this. he was way too drunk pick up at little too late club -sleazy, cool, and fuzzy. this is crystal clear seduction with way too chic chick in your room. the b-side is equally smooth.

Aundy – Claude VonStroke

look its a simple formula. hot vocals. drop dead gorgeous beats. i’ve been loving this long time. here is the latest of the bristol school. (yeah thats her up top)

Love Dub – Cooly G

i dont know why i stopped listening to minimal. maybe it was because it took so long to go anywhere. this track does not. 30 seconds in and it blows up all over the place.

Border Line – Afonso Maia


dam funk

June 14, 2009


It was a tough decision, who to see tonight dam funk (pronounced “dame funk”) or skream.  I’ve been meaning to see skream for a while now, and I’m sure he will kill it tonight, however, this decision was all about old vs. new excitement, and I chose new.  Living in Calgary it is not often that an artist comes to town at the same time as I’m discovering them.  I’ve only tuned in to this guy a couple weeks ago.  So it was that kind of excitement when I saw the poster on the street last weekend.  “Seriously? he’s coming next Saturday? I just got his records in the mail yesterday…. damn!”

synth heavy future funk has arrived at just the right time for summer.
