OK - So we've got into the Haim sisters pretty late but it was inevitable... These Californians have already won the BBC Sound of 2013 award, been signed to Jay-Z's management company, played Glastonbury, SXSW, Reading and have hit the Top 40 in Australia and other places.
It's said that they're commonly compared to Fleetwood Mac and while the sisters reportedly shirk that reference; I'm inclined to agree (it's certainly not a bad thing!) Check out the original of this track in the video below then grab some remixes and see what everyone's talking about. Tree Boi xoxox

North Shore Pony Club ft. DTCAPRI - Quickdraw
"... 2013 is going to be the year of the Pony!"
OK... So it might be a bit soon to call it but we've been slamming this track on repeat for a good few months now! And as well as 'best track of 2012', it's the hands down winner for best videol!!

I first stumbled across this track reading a blog that I don't recall. I was meant to be paying attention at a family dinner. Within 5 minutes of hearing this track, I had the whole family crowded around a PC streaming this tune - and every single one of us loved it.

I've held off posting on this track for a while in the hope that some more info would surface on these guys; I really wanted to let you know what they had planned for 2013. I promise you, I Google'd the shit out of NSPC and all that I could find out was that they're an NZ band that occasionally plays house parties! And I say that without an ounce of disrespect, really, NSPC are cool as fuck, and they're not even trying. It makes me jealous. 

And so, no further info on NSPC was forthcoming, until, we uploaded this post and then band member 'Matt Pony' himself got in contact with ikas.com! If you could have seen my face when I got that email; it was a 'Christmas  has come early' face for sure. Here's a snippet of what Matt had to say;

"We've actually got a bunch of music coming out in the next couple of months. Have recorded a full length album but will be putting stuff up on youtube in the meantime... Should also getting some t-shirts made up in the next fortnight"...

That's right... You heard it here first; I'm going to be wearing nothing but NSPC merchandise in 2013! 

So with a full length album in the pipeline, you can be sure that ikas.com will be keeping a very close eye on NSPC. We have no doubt that this track is just a sign of things to come!

What a track - definitely my big highlight of 2012! Tree Boy xoxoxo

As cliche as it may seem, as soon as I heard my first Cyril Hahn remix, I knew that a star had been born!
 
Swiss-born Canada-based Cyril Hahn will take the underground by storm in 2013, with a fair smack of mainstream attention, that is my prediction.
 
Cyril has just signed with the 'Primary Talent' agency who have big plans for his worlwide tour in early 2013... This man will blow up every city he lands in.

Seriously, if I were to host a competition called 'my all time favourite remixes', Cyril would be a gold medal contender for me with more than just one of his remixes.

He remixes tracks that many credible producers wouldn't touch with a stick, with exceptional results. Prior to Cyril Hahn, I held the view that anyone who remixed 'say my name' by Destiny's child was a young kid with beginner-level software, knowledge and talent. Cyril Hahn defies my previously unarguable logic.

Those of you who are fans of the likes of James Blake, SBTRKT & Four Tet will especially enjoy Cyril.

Listen to this Destiny's Child remix, and hear what I mean...

This post excites me beyond words - this is hands down the filthiest compilation of FACE SMASHING BASS I've posted in AGES!!! You need this in your life... 

I guarantee that after listening to this post you'll be like' 'WTF, seriously, how have I survived without this mass of face bending, mind altering bassline?!"  I'll leave you to figure that out, 'cos it's beyond me.... Tree Boy xoxoxoxo

Zeds Dead ft. Omar Linx - Out for Blood

I am in love with 'Zed's Dead' an unhealthy amount... As soon as he released 'rude boy' on Kissy Sell Out's label 'San City High' I knew we were going to have a long term love affair. No-one know's bassline like Kissy Sell Out. No-one prodcues bassline like Zed's Dead. This bassline is FUCKING MENTAL.

Borgore - Decisions (Ian Munro Remix)

Who would have thought? Dubstep... then moombahton... now 'trapstyle'? Three new genres in my lifetime, and I'm loving each one more and more! I've heard a fair few 'trap' tracks now, including a few from Ian Munro... But this is the pick of a very good bunch. Now, if you pay any attention to youtube comments - Borgore has a lot of haters... And that's bullshit, I'd put my neck on the line for this guy, he's a great producer and I enjoy every single one of this tracks. His tracks are so good, they barely warrant a remix... However, as this track is so mental, I will allow it... but only this once!

Eptic ft. Diesel - Stick Up VIP

SPOILER ALERT!!! This is a FUCKING ANTHEM!!! When I first heard this, I felt like I'd been shot in the mid-riff... This track has such a mammoth bassline that it physically hurt me to listen to it... It pounds so hard that you literally need to sit down to support your own weight while it's playing... It will vibrate you so hard that you'll precipitate into nothing more than a puddle of your former self. Big up to 'Inspector Dubplate' for giving everyone the heads up on this track via his youtube channel (which is sick... youtube him now).

As you will tell from the first 20 seconds of this track... I should not like it. The lyrics are abhorrent. But this remix is not. It's a monster that I especially love playing full blast at traffic lights in my shitty little car, pretending to be a right G for shits and gigs...

I haven't posted in a while, but there is no better reason to start again than a brand new track from Linkin park.

'Burn it Down' is the first single from the bands forthcoming album 'Living Things', which is set to be released in June this year.

I know that the band tried to push a lot of boundaries with the last record, as they always try to do, but here I feel like they have taken the stance of 'let's just write a great song'. Fingers crossed that this is the same path they take throughout the whole album.

This is very much a Linkin park song, I by that I mean that they have almost forged a type of song over their career. So what you can expect from 'Burn it Down' is a catchy chorus, a heavy backing track, and the amazing mix of Chester's and Mike vocals.

But I will let you be the judge.

Linkin Park are set to tour Europe and the UK later this year / the beginning of 2013.

And to hear a more in depth interview, you can catch Chester on Zane Lowe's Radio 1 show last night - http://www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/b01g4j8f

Vizzle.
