You ever hear a song that was really good? …goosebumps good? I haven’t lately, but Belgium’s Aeroplane…. mm… so mode right now. They absolutely techno dreamed the hell out of the already dreamy ‘Paris’ by the Friendly Fires. Throw Au Revoir Simone’s vocals on that bitch and what do you get?
As a bonus, here are 2 more Aeroplane remixes. They’re blog-vintage, but I hope they give you the most wonderful techno dreams tonight.
David Rubato – Circuit (Aeroplane Remix) (porn groove)
Coyote – Too Hard (Aeroplane Remix) (holy goosebumps, batman)
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…

OH, and that one track that was stuck in my head FOREVER was from both paris natives–
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.
Ed Banger flings.
It’s about that time again, and for their 5th year in existence, they’ve decided to put together Ed Rec Vol. III.
Yeah, it’s pretty good. More of the same guys, making some exquisitely new sounding shit and it’s just loveable.
Disco metal champion, Mr. Flash, goes “Over the Top” and it’s, ummmmmm pretty unbelievable/awesome/proper/tally ho.
Get the teaser mixed by Feadz over at missingtoof
sebastiAn called, he wants you to start disco dancing ASAP. It’s imperative.
The track has signature sebastiAn breaks, decaying snares, and whining synths. He definitely steps up his game in the soul/funk division with some Shaft status strings/trumpets/guitars.
This track will be out on the latest sebastiAn EP/sampler called MMA, out on who else…ed banger soulja boy records
This is why you need to forget what you once knew, and learn how to listen again.
I woke to a chilly morning and rode my bike through the dense layer of tingling moisture to school. Same as every Monday morning. This Monday was destined to be different I thought.
So. After the 5 or so hours I’ve been home, I’ve given the album 3 complete run throughs, (yes, including the encore disc).
verdict: daft punk live is apocalypse. in a good way.
Sorry that I don’t have more to say on this matter. Just buy/preorder it depending on where you live.
I was so hyped on this that I made a headache-induced, really poorly mixed, minimix. say that 10 times fast.
listen to it.
