- Note that this post got deleted so I have set it up all again… Yes very annoying.
I thought I would kick things off with a couple of back to back instalments of A Derogatory Playlist PT VII and VIII. I want to get all this electro remix shit out of the way so I can get onto the real shit which has been invading my air waves the last few months being some of this years best albums (yeah you know who you are).
As you cool guys might realise a lot of this stuff is getting a little old but it needs to be done.

Well there is a very vast range of crap up there so I am sure if you have enough patience you can find something you like, however the things I liked the most are below;
I Highly Recommend
Lesser Panda – Carousel (Drums Of Death Remix)
This is a track which my girlfriend found and said “You will really really like this song it is your type of music” so I gave it a go and yes she was right. The intro builds with a discoish bass riff and some background electronics into some pounding bass and kick drum. After this you will find yourself only half way into the intro as the anticipation continues until the big bass riff drops at 1:35 leading to indie vocals. It is one of those tracks which gives a different feel every minute and would be a destroyer on the dance floor – but how would I know I don’t dance..
Chemical Brothers – Hey Boy Hey Girl (Soulwax Remix)
Some unknown artist remixing another unknown artist – let me know if you know who they are. Anyway the classic synths fill this track so deep you may find yourself trying to describe the feeling with a wide open mouth and some sort of animal sound when it drops on the dance floor – but how would I know I don’t open my mouth.
Bjork – Innocence (Simian Mobile Disco)
Simian Mobile Disco has a very distinct remix style especially compared to their original productions. I believe it is probably one of the boy’s creative outlets of drug induced tranquillity. Almost minimal the track progresses over its 8 mins into a proggy electro bomb utilising Bjorks dreamy voice in an almost trancey way. I don’t know how this one would go on the dance floor but it works great as a wake up call on a long flight when shuffle delivers.
Siriusmo – Girls Rock
The Chop Shop DJs showed me this track a few months ago and it was a pleasure to hear them play it at The Empire on the weekend. If I was to dance I would have definitely danced to this one. Siriusmo has an almost trademark synth solo style which gives his tracks an 80’s rock plugged into electronics style. The big bass and repetitive lyrics have meant after a few months I am still really enjoying this one.
Cut Copy – Hearts On Fire (Aeroplane Remix)
I would never have though that I would be interested in Hearts On Fire again even remixed as the track is like sooooo 2007. However my friend, this little Aeroplane has done something quite intriguing to it, keeping only the vocals and a few samples at the end and turning it into a disco ball treat – Genius!
Well I hope that you can start visiting my site again so I can keep up the posting because I just have so much to share with all of you little things. I will try to get some of my most favourite albums of the year up very soon – so until then remember that a part of the weekend never ever ever ever dies.
