Well, it’s been a while. That’s a VERY large understatement. Is that an oxi-moron? Either way, Times Neue Roman’s latest EP, Zombies: The To Die Remixes (INTELLEGENIX) dropped yesterday and on it, among other fantastic remixes from the likes of Barletta, Pink Dead Whale and Peter Project, is mine. Each remix is expertly crafted and well ready to take over whatever genres dance floor so do yourself a favor and go to Beatport, Junodownload, Amazon, iTunesiTunes and give it a listen. I guarantee you’ll find something you like. Also, to grab a lower res copy of my remix and check out further praise from a fantastic blog (if I do say so myself) go to Discobelle.net MAKESHIFT Out!
Pawn Shop Records has been kind enough to officially release my Nothin But The Dirt EP. It is now available for download from BeatPort, Juno Download, DJ Download and Stompy.com Check out the Pawn Shop Records website to get your copy!
Fleet Foxes have undoubtedly become one of my favorite bands in this last year. When Chris Keys at Another Night on Earth mentioned that he might be compiling a bunch of slower tempo edits, their song Blue Ridge Mountains immediately came to mind.
I am extremely excited to be working with someone who I consider to be a rising star in Toronto’s R&B/Urban/Whateveryouwannacallit music scene. Amenta is a name you should watch for, not only for her subtle, sweet and raspy, lilting 40′s/50′s-esque vocals, but also for her (ahem) excellent choice of producer collaborations. We had spoken about doing some original music a while back but both got side-tracked. No longer!
While we do plan to record some tracks that I have produced, this time around, we were puttin’ in work recording and mixing her over a fLako beat. The tune is called Elevate. You can check out a rough mix preview here!
Stay tuned for more…
You may know Makossa and Megablast from the excellent Vienna-based G-Stone recordings. Independently, Marcus MOKASSA Wagner-Lapierre has been DJing, remixing and producing since the mid-80′s not to mention his running of the infamous Viennese indie radio station FM4 since 1995 AAAND his compiling of over 20 different compilations.
Megablast is no newcomer either, having been DJing since the 90′s, heavy into all forms of dance music and producing remixes and releases for G-Stone, Afroart and !K7 in addition to his debut album “Creation” on Stereo Deluxe in ’03.
Needless to say, I was more than tickled pink to have had Time Creeps been featured on Mokassa’s radio show on FM4, the Swound Sound System. Unfortunately, the show only streams live, so you can only check the track listing in the comments section on their myspace page for proof , however it’s definitely worth doing the time change math to tune in next time.
Big-ups to Vienna, M&M and G-Stone!
