Summerfeilddayz was an amazing day for one real reason and that was because I finally got to see Kissy Sell Out!! I had been hanging out to see this geezer for a very long time but I did not know how excited I would get when he came out. He played probably the most pleasurable DJ set I had ever witnessed and not even the gravitational force of Jupiter would have been able to pull the smile from my face. I wish I some how planned a way I could have met him because I already miss him.…. he is probably the coolest bunch of atoms in the universe.
Any way here is a Kissy remix which has gone flying under my radar for some time. I have known about it for awhile but for some reason never listened to it or tried to get a hold of it. It is a remix from a DJ/MC duo from NSW called Q45 & Amy B. I accidentally saw Amy B perform at the empire a couple of months ago and she was putting her very smooth vocals over a DJ set and making it sound fantastic and I might add she also looked fantastic. A far cry from good old Seany B who has a habit of spewing all over tracks and making them too disgusting to put the sound waves any wear near your earlobes.
Q45 & Amy B – Naughty (Kissy Sell Out Mix)
Amy B has real talent and was working well with the DJ of the night (it might have been Q45 but I can’t confirm that). I had a listen to some of their originals and they have that sort of electro/house commercial sound to them so they might even be hitting a radio station around you soon (if they have not already???).
The remix is a good one however Kissy has got to start reaching a little further into his pocket for originality track by track because they are starting to all sound a little too similar. This remix follows his traditional formula however his trademark synth solo at around 3:48 is absolutely glorious to listen to.
The next thing I would like to share with you is a mix tape cut copy did called “So Cosmic” which they created for some fun and to promote some of their tracks on their upcoming album. It is a sweet spacey mix which is sure to give you some disco education we all need.
The main reason I am posting this however is because of what happens at 37:56 when their next single “Lights and Music” comes in. This track is just ridiculously good and as soon as they release this it is going to explode on any speakers which work including clubs, home and radio.
I first noticed this track live when they played at Daft Punk and I seriously could not get enough of it, the words of the chorus were instantly stuck in my head and I knew I had to some how find out what the hell this magic was.

I took some video footage from that Daft Punk show you can view below – check out 2:37 of the video for snippets of Lights and Music (I was only filming the well known tracks but could not help but film both the chorus’ of this because it was so good).
As I mentioned in my last post Chromeo for new years was something very special so lucky for you I put together some great footage of the show so you can see how cool these guys are live. For the Melbourne people who were there you might be able to spot yourself in the crowd if you were up the front. Also got some great photos including a couple with Chromeo.
Run for LCD Soundsystem because James Murphy is King
Some thing that I bought this week that I really should have purchased earlier but never did was the LCD Soundsystem 45:33 Nike Run. It is a 45 min set that King James Murphy put together for Nike. It is amazingly produced and so nice to listen to I will have to remember to take it for a run one day, not that I could ever run for that long but I sure could dance it. With the CD came a few extra tracks which are just LCD classics in particular Freak Out/Starry eyes. Listen for when it turns into Starry Eyes at 8:15 after about a minute and a half drum solo of this 12:22 long track! So great!!
A Litte bit of Daft Punk Goes A Long Way With You
The last track I would like to leave you with is just one I came across today when I was actually looking for the original because I thought it would be cool to mix in. I was very happy when I stumbled across this remix as it is a nice electro remix of the classic Stardust track Music Sounds Better With You from 10 years ago.

Any way I hope you enjoy the music and remember Grafton Primary is coming!!
