Totally Enormous Extinct Dinosaurs - Dream On
Possibly not the most appropriate post to start the year as TEED has just cancelled his Australian tour! That means festival-goers will miss the UK producer at Falls, Southbound and Field Day. But the good news is he's on a headline UK tour in February, plans to come back to Oz in late 2012 AND has produced this track;
Treasure Fingers - Take My Hand
A lovely bit of disco house here from the Atlanta producer Ashley Jones. Seriously, this guy has put out some massive releases but still seems very US-centric. That's despite him remixing the likes of Chromeo and Miike Snow and is getting front page coverage on 'Dj' magazine... If you're not into this guy in a big way yet, we'll be doing our best to change that.
Carl Cox is nearly 50! how mad is that - but what a career - voted world's best DJ, heading two labels, all those seasons in Ibiza, shows on Radio 1 and not to mention a massive back-catalogue of tracks, one of which has received this sick remix from UK fidget house producer Foamo! This is what we want...
Scottish producer Chris Lake was there very near the beginning of my electro obsession with his 2006 track 'Changes'. The guy's gone on to do huge things, he's putting out remixes for the likes of Lady Gaga nowadays and runs the two labels 'rising stars' and 'rising trax'... Not a lot has changed since back then, I still love what he's putting out...
A bit of fun to end things off, I actually really like this as far Daft Punk bootlegs go, it's gonna be a guilty listen this one! Laters.
