I think the first time I heard the Van She “Kelly” demo was almost 5 years ago in my college dorm room and it was the most amazing thing I had heard (thanks bigstereo). Anyway, some time has passed and just last year, Van She dropped their full length, V. It was(is) amazing and the final cut of Kelly is really something I can keep coming back to. Solid insurance. Van She > Geico.
Van She – Kelly
Shortly after that, a “Kelly” remix EP came out featuring remixes by Shinichi Osawa, Breakbot, M83, and Lifelike. What kind of insane list of producers??? Here’s Breakbot’s cut. And really? Who REALLY needs to say anything about Breakbot anymore?
Van She – Kelly (Breakbot Remix)
definitely head over to myspace or buy the V album via the modshop.
Speaking of Breakbot….Royksopp kind of went mad poppy with their latest single. Kind of makes me wonder what the full length is gonna sound like. J. posted their new video and it’s a feast for the eyes. This single will be released soon with a host of remixes from BOYS NOIZE/BBOT/Datasette.

bb update: just got out of a final to find another 20 messages on my bb. The mailing list is going strong!
The most astounding/interesting/perplexing thing happened this morning. Things went as usual. I woke up, brushed my teeth, fried an egg, burned the toast, then sat down for some quality 1 on 1 with apple mail. (yep, no shower, this is what future-scientists do)
Everything was going well and as usual: club promo, invites, mp3s, blah blah, label promoters being dicks, you know –the usual. ANYWAY…. I come to an email from Peter from the Outlaws. It’s got a mixtape, alright, sweet so I start downloading it. While that is going, I go to my next message.
I do a double take. someone pressed…..
REPLY TO ALL
and then… I saw it again… then again. The same title, but with more Re:’s attached and from different senders! By this point I could feel the excitement mounting in my happy little fingers. It had suddenly warped to 1982 and everyone reverted to using one of the earliest renditions of social networking known as ‘mailing lists’.
I think I just heard a little rip in the time/space continuum due to this.
The shirts are coming.
long live the meme
I love you all.
Oh, I’m gonna throw down a list of tracks right here that came to the inbox the that a stood out. You know I’m not usually a fan of ‘mass track posts’, actually I don’t like that at all. But in the interest of time I’m gonna do it. Final examinations again. You know how that goes. All of these tracks are out of control, you must listen.
RIGHT CLICK THESE, SAVE AS.
TREASURE FINGERS: sweating funk all over this, O’bryan – I’m freaky (romeo erotic / treasure fingers reflip)

For the past 2 weeks, all day, all weekend, I’ve been repeating the track I’m about to speak about.
you definitely want to Read more
Tomorrow I’m flying a short trip to SF for the weekend, so expect an addition to my series of “airport confessions”.
What I needed to tell you now though, is I’ve found a bit of time and am currently playing around with a new tracklist, full of fun little bleeps and bloops. Earlier today I stumbled upon a neat sounding little combo. Ignore the shitty fader levels but when the bass on Detonator comes in, I want to get loco.
listen to the preview, get the next mixtape sometime in the future.
