mike mind (acid)

March 29, 2010

some good acid techno songs (if I can label them like that) by turbo records mike mind.  I found this first song after Tiga played it in his bbc radio one mix last year (I think he mixed it into his song ‘overtime’).  amazing.

Acid Machine

anyways, enjoy some good new songs to bring back those old 1990’s memories.

Mike Mind – Satellite Son

(Here’s a sample of tiga’s ‘overtime’ so you can imagine how nice it goes with acid machine and why I was so excited when I first heard it)

winter makes me sick

December 8, 2009

waiting for a bus that will never come.  stuck in slippery traffic.  hanging out at the hospital hooked to an IV.  here are some good loud techno tunes to say fuck you old man winter!

The Proxy – 8000 (this song was made for marching in the snow)

02 Night of the Hornheadz (Bird Peterson Remix) [feat. Drop the Lime] (loud banger – can’t go wrong sampling drop the lime)

Drop-The-Lime-Devils-Eyes (speaking of drop the lime)

Solo – Rawmania (Original Mix) (this track is so worldly it takes me anywhere but cold here)

a few favorites

November 20, 2009

I randomly stumbled upon a Radiohead remix done by Leftfield. As Idiotheque is definitely my fav Radiohead song, (probably since it’s  their most electronic sounding and  it also doesn’t leave you feeling sad as Thom Yorke is quite capable of doing)  I thought I would share as in my opinion Radiohead and Leftfield are in a  class of their own. I saw Radiohead live in concert at Thunderbird stadium ( 2003)  and the best way to describe it: It Changes your Life!  

Idiotheque remix

To follow, here’s a Leftfield classic from the album entitled  Leftism.

Space Shanty

and to finish off, here’s a track from Gemmy that reminds me of Leftfield  because of the the old electronica  beat mixed in new glitchy wonky sounds. Rainbow Roads is included  on Mary Ann Hobbs’ new compilation Wild Angels. If you still aren’t tuning into her show on BBC Radio 1 Wednesday nights, I strongly encourage you to start. …and it will get you saying “maximum respect”

long hours and heavy rotation

November 14, 2009

To follow up on Camstyles post I have been pulling some long hours in front of the computer these days, working on new projects. Like many of us out there I suffer from music ADD. So when an artist or album comes a long that I play over and over I know it’s something special. Lately I have been getting into indie, blues rock, dream pop, and of course some techno. Here are some artists that have helped me pass the time; in each genre:

INDIE:

Sub pop’s fleet foxes hailing from Seattle, some nice easy listening that can be listened to loud or soft depending on your mood, enjoy…

15 Mykonos (Alternative Version)

04 tiger mountain peasant song

BLUES-ROCK:

The Black Keys, I kept hearing their name everywhere for a few years but never really listened to them. Until I started watching the HBO show ” HUNG” thier song I’ll be your man is the theme song for the show, so I got some of their albums and really enjoyed what I heard.

05 Lies – The Black Keys

03 Black Keys – The Big Come Up – I’ll Be Your Man

 

DREAM POP:

I first heard Silversun Pickups at a friends house the other night. I first I thought it was a new Smashing Pumpkins album then I though it was Girls against Boys. Then I realized I had to have it. Check these guys out… serious!

03 – Growing Old Is Getting Old

04 – It’s Nice To Know You Work Alone

 

TECHNO:

Shadow dancer, I just love these guys!

01 Cowbois (Original) ( watch out for the drop at 1:30)

13 This Is This 1 ( no need to work dj, this track does everything for you )

 

ghost on tape: check out the mix this dude just did for xlr8r

Ghosts_On_Tape_-_Magadishu_Night_Life

 

enjoy guys!
