I thoroughly enjoy bringing you all the good stuff I receive from up and coming DJ’s and Producers whenever I get the opportunity. I promise I will bring you some more soon but right now I would like to bring your attention to a unique movement coming from Spain!
I am planning on visiting Barcelona next week for a few days so when I received an email from a couple of Barcelona DJs with a mix promoting local electronic artists on a new uber label based out of the same city I got very excited!! Having heard absolutely nothing from the city before I was pleasantly surprised when not only did the mix highlight the raw and diverse talent of the productions but also the mixing of the DJ’s.
Tracey Records was created by four of the most musical inclined gentlemen in the scene with the same vision of producing all things from records to insane parties. They come with a mission statement leading them into Modular status and a sure path to success.
I thought it was going to be in my best interest to check out the MySpace’s of all involved in “Tracy Records” with the hope of tracking down this raw sound live when I visited the city. Over the next couple of hours I could not believe how lucky I was as Myspace page after Myspace page produced original/thumping/diverse noise for my listening pleasure –
I have added some of my favourites below which includes the above mentioned mini mix from Radiocontrol highlighting all the producers on the label and also a couple of banging tracks from Radiocontrol’s production alias theAmplid and the banging electro sounds of Sidechains.

HEY NOW DJS
HEY NOW DJs were one of my favourite remix artists of last year so I was extremely excited when I saw a new remix land in my inbox. I would not be disappointed as I played the remix of Snob Scrilla – There You Go Again which turns in to an absolute weapon. I can not emphasise enough how FUCKING MASSIVE THIS TRACK IS!!! I got a 320KBPS version off the boys so all you DJs can put it on and put it on LOUD!!! Snob Scrilla is originally from California but now calls Sydney home. I am not too sure what his originals sound like but this remix is massive. Just play it and wait for the end as it completely explodes. The same email included a Dr Dre/NewJack mash up called Forget About Newjack featuring – if any of you are into hip hop you may like this one (I am not into it).

FORGOT ABOUT NEWJACK (Forgot about Dre VS NewJack, Hey Now Mash)
Check out some of my favourite HEY NOW remixes from last year including the incredible Grafton Primary remix and the most underrated/underplayed song of the year The Lost Velentinos remix of 17 Deaths – I am still yet to hear 17 Deaths being played out so I am on the boys back to send me a 320kbs version so I can spread the love to all you DJs so you no longer have an excuse not to drop it.
