My backlog of ‘to shlog’ is getting longer and longer. Bad for me, good for you. Really a lot of good shit coming around these days and I don’t anticipate it slowing down anytime soon. Some of my favorites are locked down in the studio getting their chops ready to record new albums, so be ready!
Up next in the list is from Yuksek. The EP “Extraball” recently dropped, I think. It is a massive EP and features Amanda Blank’s vocals with remixes by ….drumroll….omfg….Burns, Pilooski, Breakbot, and a cover by The Shoes??? WHAT.THE.FUCK.!!! MADNESSSSSS. Get this. ASAP.
Anyway, here’s Breakbot’s remix which is undeniably ‘Breakbot’. Funk funk funk funkkkkkk. the synths and vocals. perfect for days. make you do the funky bot.
(ps: Breakbot also just signed with Ed Banger, finally. can’t wait to hear what comes of this very holy matrimony)
Alright and since anything Pilooski just kills me, here it is.
Seriously. Pilooski edits are the standard for edits. Anyone listen to the Franki Valli ‘Beggin’ Compilation? Pilooski MURDERS THE SHIT SOLID. check it out asap.
Q: How do you make a classic, classic-er?
oh, hold up, did you say you wanted more Breakbot? thought so. just look in the history my friends.

This track is so massive. I must admit, back when I was first hearing about Calvin Harris, I held my own reservations. But after actually hearing his catchy as shit production skills, it was inevitable. I was hooked. You might remember the Roisin Murphy track that went up here not too long ago. (pop-disco-fire)
Here’s what I’m talking about. A trip down epic string synth lane with Calvin Harris’ version of The Hours – “See the Light”. It starts with that whimsical toy synth then jumps into the harmonized staccato but THEN FINALLY….. the MAD WILD roto-esque big-room synth chorus drops bombs. All held down by such a solid bassline that would make Randy Jackson bring back his jheri curl.
