I would like to welcome the 19th Derogatory Playlist – a big number for the Derogatory one and only 1 away from number 20. It is not yet time to reflect retrospectively so let’s avoid hindsight and enjoy the deepness which lies ahead.
The Playlist El Derog below is a segment of electronic tunes built for darken rooms, late nights, early mornings and most importantly a sound system which can deliver the tasty Wav files into your ear drums with pin point sharpness. Play them loud, play them with your eyes closed and let your fingers guide the rest of your body in rhythm through the clouded hoops in the sky.
A Derogatory Playlist PT XIX
All tracks also available in WAV
I highly recommend…
Ron Basejam – Looter (Original Mix)
This is my favourite track over the last month however it is not without a trick. Both the Magician and his former partner in crime Aeroplane understood that this sounds a lot better sped up from 100bpm to 120bpm to accelerate the prodding bass as heard on both of their most recent mixes. So pitch it up or get someone to pitch it up for you and start punching that fist.
Hiem – Freaky Nights (Tim Paris Remix)
This track is definitely a soundtrack to a Freaky Night with a mysteriously doomy melody. The bass runs as you creep down a darkened hallway, you can hear movement in the distance as your fingers grip the wall. The track heats up as you peer around the corner and bounce into the light.
Virgon Four – Its A Crime (Caribou Mix)
It’s nice to hear from Caribou again. This progressive stabber turns into absolute brilliance half way through with synth madness. Dizzy drum patterns remind you that you “gotta go underground”.
Osunlade – Envision (Ame Remix)
One of the most recent tracks I have purchased on the list and an instant thrill. Can’t help but think it could be a shout out to the Deep House Label Innervisions, which released the track with the lyrics stating that you “can’t envision it”. The bass delivers the melody as the lyrics follow….
Monarchy – Maybe I’m Crazy (Diskjokke Remix)
This Disjokke remix was the first I decided needed to go in the next Derogatory playlist back in July. The track along with the Zombie Nation remix proves I still have some balls. This Maybe I’m Crazy release by Electro Poppers Monarchy has some serious talent on the remix front however I believe that the sheer brutality of the first bass drop makes the usually reserved Disjokke’s remix stand out.
Thank you and I will see you all next time.
