What else is new - Mix 3.2
Back in October DFA guru James Murphy did a new mix for the Fabriclive series along with fellow LCD Soundsystem partner-in-crime Pat Mahoney. For some reason I totally missed this gem, which was an obvious mistake on my part. These collections are normally sort of just left of the mainstream with forays into unknown territory. Not so with this one, this one starts somewhere deep in a 1984 post punk basement somewhere in New York, and then proceeds to dig directly into the earth. What is to be find somewhere in the deep N.Y. underground is an effective mix of funk, mutant disco and synth - in other words: Bliss! It, and I hesitate to use this phrasing, fucking rocks!

here's a small soundbite:

James Murphy / Pat Mahoney - Fabric.Live 36

Chic - I feel your love comin' on -> Was (Not Was) - Tell be that I'm dreaming -> GQ - Lies

Another grade A christmas present for me would be the new Daft Punk mix CD giving you all the fun you missed out on because you weren't living anywhere near their live tour this summer:

I think it's safe to say that this 2007 is a follow up to the 1997 Alive record, which didn't really have a great impact on public taste. This new mix reads like a regular greatist hits for the 'Punk. Seriously, I have a hard time coming up with an electronic act having more killer singles in their back catalogue. Thus even if you're not a Daft Punk fan, you do have to give this a listen and acknowledge the sheer ferocity of their songs: Ro'o'oooobooo'o'o'ot - Hu'uuuumaaaa'aaaa'an! Listen to the rising alarm before the song breaks: WUUUT!

Here's a small soundbite:
