Obligatory (but totally by choice)

Right now, Australia is still one of my favorite places putting out TUNES/JAMS/MAGIC.

You’ve already heard it over and over again, and it seems they’re not letting up. Most notably, Bang Gang has been shaking things down. First major change was joining up with Modular last year and since then putting out amazing releases non-stop. Who could ask for more? Here are some lovely cuts from down hunder that I’ve been recently playing out but I’m quite sure very few of these are actually new to you.

Tenzin oh Tenzin. Biggest techno around! That is all. Play this in a big room with a big system.

What haven’t I said about Knightlife (even before the advent of tagging on tuftsmania)? He may have been my gateway drug into the world of the Australian Tune Factory. (Oxford Art Factory?) Anyway, hopping allllll the way back to the first time I heard Knightlife’s 2007 demo ‘Ambopop’ to now, the magic is still there. I can honestly say the demo is still just as good as it used to be –and his recent stuff is even better. That’s saying something.

Our boy Cassian! He’s one of Bang Gang’s freshest hit-makers and has been on a roll since before the new year! With his recent release of the Friday Night EP, people are just starting to get a taste of what this guy is all about. This remix of Polygon Palace is soooo fresh. Leveraging that delicious reverbed piano synth from the original, Cassian lays his magic disco touch on the whole track with finesse –bringing in a solid tambourine / hand clap track as well! sooo much vibe happening!
This track was actually supposed to be released under the CSK OK  name, but somehow that was lost in translation. So here I present you –a properly tagged file! yew!

Polygon PalaceTokyo Getaway (Cassian Remix) (CSK OK Remix)

Remember that fresh remix of Daft Punk ‘Around the World’ with the live guitar action? Yeah, none other than Nicky Van She and Dangerous Dan! This is Dangerous Dan’s newest solo release and it’s…SOFRESH!! It’s his rendition of the classic ‘Puttin’ on the Ritz’ and the break where it cuts to an original version of the song is OMIGOD awesome. I’m not sure which version of Ritz it’s from as there are quite a few renditions. I’ve only heard the Benny Goodman version and it’s pretty different.

Dangerous DanThe Ritz

I haven’t heard of any other Dangerous Dan solo releases prior to this one –anyone know if he’s got any other originals?

This isn’t quite Australian, but Hercules & Love Affair (amazing) made a splendid remix of Cut Copy’s Far Away (amazing). Mathematically that would be amazing^2, right? I mean, even if one were not amazing, it would still be amazing… mathematically. This holds true to the remixing world.

Wait, let’s step back for a sec…SPEAKING OF CASSIAN…. How good is his stuff??? It’s so good I’ve been playing a mixtape rip of Friday Night since 2009!! With the Friday Night EP finally out, I don’t have to do that anymore!!

Boy that was a juggernaut of a post. Are we done with australia for a while now? ugh, probably not. (but wait, that’s awesome.)

Speaking of juggernauts, where’s the next album???  someone speak up.

The temperatures in LA have been out of control lately. My normal bike route home which is usually very short and cool, resulted in me being drenched in sweat all week.

This is the time to have sweaty, debaucherous parties.

–but before all that, I need to finish school. :(

ENOUGH OF THAT.

MANY Thanks to all the people who send me demos, advances, mixtapes, nudes, and especially all the big name labels who, as of late, have been flooding my inbox with complete bullshit (and arguably shitty incomplete SAMPLES of songs).

But most importantly, thanks to all the people who send me high-bitrate mp3s. I cannot stress how much this means to me. Things like this tell me that you VALUE you own work as an artist.

To me it says,

“Hey, my work is tops, I don’t want it heard on anything but the best quality it can be. 320kbs all over your chest.”

I am probably more apt to respect your shit if you demonstrate some level of respect for it as well.

Something I can’t understand is an email consisting of,

“hey dude blogger guy, I don’t really give a fuck but you’re on the mailing list I made by crawling hypemachine, here’s my 96kbs track, feel free to play it live and post a blog entry about it.”

10 min later,

“oh sorry bro, i forgot to attach/link the file”

By this point, not only am I bothered that there was a message that failed to deliver with music, I was totally let down by the SHITness of the finally delivered track. Failure to deliver is such a bitch.

I will obviously not play a track that isn’t appealing to me, but I will sure as shit not play something that sounds like it was:
recorded off a ford fiesta fm radio into a lawyer’s spit-encrusted-dictaphone,
re-recorded onto your macbook through the built in microphone,
maxed out the input level because it wasn’t loud enough,
and finally re-compressed.

There isn’t enough time in a day.

hang in there, I’ve got a few weeks to go.

don’t have time to say much more… so listen.

ok, I GOTTA say something about this. Aside from all the Australian label inbreeding, I still can’t seem to get over the magic of Midnight Juggernauts. The spacey synth, church organs, reverb, CASTLEVANIASOUNDS, everything fucking thing they do is so epic and executed in a way that dwarfs everything in comparison. (them being juggernauts and all, LOOK I MAKE THE JOKE)
