Hey Guys i have been slacker than Frances performance at the WC so apologies for that. I have started a new Top 5 with sceneout.co.za so i will be copying the Top 5 here! Top 4 are singles with the No 5 always being a mix because i know not all of have the facilities/abilites to mix it up
Also keep an eye out for the new BPM mag featuring my reviews of the Pioneer CDJ900 and Denon DN-X1600 mixer…
Here are the music reviews…
PS - HUP HOLLAND HUP!!!
1 Cirez D Exit
Eric Prydz lesser know pseudonym makes another appearance on his Mouseville
label. The Cirez D identity is an outlet for his more techno orientated
productions, but with Exit it’s a little more housey with those distinctive
Prydz synths towering over a dark groovy baseline.
2 Lutzenkirchen Phuture Disco Vibes
Germany Producer and mastering engineer Tobias Lutzenkirchen hits all the
write notes with his new single on one of Munich’s premier labels Great
Stuff Recording. The original riff comes from a tiny sampled lifted from
the lead of “The One’s - Flawless” and both the minimal original mix and
techier Koen Groeneveld mix rock.
3 Melvin Reese & Gregor Salto Whoooh!
The two Dutchmen combine wonderfully on the Sneakerz Music imprint. The
original mix is a little on the screamy side for me but the Mel Tierra mix
is an awesome slice of the Dutch tech sound that’s going down like yogurt
at a curry party.
4 Roisin Murphy & Crookers Royal T
Moloko front-woman Roisin joins forces with the ever popular Italian
producers the Crookers. They temper each other quite nicely and Fatboy
Slim’s Southern Fried puts together a wicked remix package courtesy of
Riva Starr, The House Moguls and my favorite the off the hook Foamo mix.
5 Kyle Watson DubNoir Sessions Vol 1
Some local props going out here considering we never made the Round of 16
in the World Cup. It’s on the DubNoir label out of the UK Midlands and its
good to see Kyle’s hard work paying off with a UK compilation release. Its
a great mix of bouncy tech house without bordering on full fidget. Great
