I’ve fallen behind with posting again…(what’s new, right?) life seems like a drawn out sine wave full of busy.
I like the way mother birds feed their baby birds. I digested this delicious music-food and now I’m going to vomit it into your ears. Here’s some stuff for you to feed your ear-bellies.
Buffetlibre was one of the first international groups to reach out to TUFTSMANIA back in the day. Since then I’ve been following their moves and they’ve grown to have such an extensive portfolio of collaborations and projects that I’m baffled as to why they aren’t prominent on blogs.
Telonius – Disco-Tec (Moullinex Remix)
MOULLINEX!!! He’s a fellow teammate of the awesome Portugese label, DISCOTEXAS and has some new stuff coming out soon. If you are following TUMBLMANIA you’ll know I posted a video for his new release here. It’s called Superman, and it’s going to be AMAZING. Stream it on his soundcloud.
This is a classic Moullinex example. He has a very peculiar stylistic synth that is recurring among his productions and is apparent here. It’s ALWAYS a good thing in this case. If you’re curious, take a listen to Break Chops as well.
Lastly, the Twelves are always welcome here. Not going to say anything else.
UPDATE: thanks Jason for calling me out on the broken links, they’re fixed.
Ok, so I know, vacation means no computers, no work blah blah. Well, fuck vacation.
I got a message earlier this morning and boy was I excited. I’ve been in contact with the Buffet Libre guys for about a year now and they’ve been putting out awesome mixtapes, collaborations, parties, nonstop. I first heard about their latest project about 4 or 5 months ago. At that time the Rewind Project was merely in the planning stages with no actual evidence of existence… but now it’s all coming together.
July 15 marks the release of their first part of two in a series called “REWIND”. It’s an 80’s music cover project put on by Buffet Libre who enlisted the help of the blog world’s favorite electronic producers to re-make their favorite 80’s tunes.
Part one includes covers and remixes by: Someone Still Loves You Boris Yeltsin, Dragonette, Moulinex, Xinobi,Overthrill, Cryptonites, Frankmusik, Sidechains, RAC feat Karl Kling, !Trash Yourself, South Central, Culture Prophet, Vitaminsforyou, Lismore, The Cloud Room, Mr Miyagi, Purple Crush, Levy, Electric Soft Parade, The Paper Scissors, Pomomofo, Saint Bernadette, Hello Tokyo, Cloetta Paris, Friday Bridge, ER2, Mark Mallman, Lucknow Pact, The Social Services, Band In A Box, We Are Soldiers We Have Guns, The Amplid, Oh Snap!, Fil Ok, Per QX, 3 is A Crowd, Mono4, Malk, Emotiquon, Julian Nation, Heartache, Hidden Cat, The Missiles, Database, CSK OK, Joe And Will Ask?, Cannonball Jane, The Fatels, Ruby Isle, PYT, Louis La Roche, TempestDisco, GlitchBitch, Keenhouse, Royal Rumble, Daroc, Adventure Kid.
Will you just look at that INSANE AS FUCK list of artists? This is like, a compilation of TUFTSMANIA BFFs. Also remember, this is just part 1.
I’m not going to link every single artist right now, after all, I’m on vacation. The Goog is your best friend.
To whet your appetite for the impending 80’s explosion, here’s a track from part 1. (believe me, both parts 1 and 2 are going to make you shit your shit)
Part 1, July 15
Part 2, Sept 1
Keep an eye on this spot for the official Buffet Libre Promo Minimix as well.
I have more than 1 reason to be thankful for these guys right now. Pizza, double cheeseburgers, spaghetti, delicious… all you can eat in Buffet Libre.
For the past year or so, these guys from Spain have been putting out some of the most tasteful mixtapes I’ve laid ears on (aka the Verbena series). It’s less of the ‘computer mixing trickery’ and more of just straight pure awesome track selection. The mixing is smooth, to the point, and seamless. No tacky trickery here to make up for the mindless process of building your tracklist around what ‘the blogs you follow on hypem‘ post weekly.
Today after my hellish first block of finals, I was looking for some relief and Marc from Buffet Libre was chillin in my mailbox to the rescue. I may not have ever mentioned here, but for the past months, a song has been haunting my memory. Ever since the day I tried to remember the title of it to play at a party. It would NOT come to me. From then on, a day hasn’t passed without me hearing the intro/vocals/rhythm of that mystery song.
That went on for about 3 months………and finally ended today. All thanks to…
Verbena Selected vol. 4. (right click, save as). Tracklist is after the break.

The Shoes – Knock Out (Tom Deluxx Remix)
I can’t believe I forgot the artist/title of this track. It’s even 4 starred in my library. I’ve even blogged about The Shoes before. Hmm funny, that was right around finals time as well. anyways. time to study more.
