Easter Chicken Special
Ghostface Killah has undergone the blogosphere heroes remix treatment. He's brought in just about anybody who's anybody to remix single 'Charlie Brown'. Normally, you'd be forgiven for being a bit sceptic about a venture like this, but bare in mind this is Ghostface! It's not like he is trying to reach out to the new kids - It's them begging a king, and a king who nods and says: "Yes, you-whom-i'm-not familiar-with, you may remix my single - Now go before I change my mind!"

It's a pretty nice lineup of remixers: DJ Mehdi, Yuksek, Orgasmic and Guns'n'Bombs. Not bad, but seriously the king isn't really taking any big chances either. The track for you to preview, is the bit generic, but hyper effective Guns mix. It's what you'd expect in a good way. I bet first time you hear this in a club, you'll be going: "OMG WUT!" - in other words, highly recommendable.

This last year has been a Hot Chip year for this blog. It's not that I'm stuck in the same groove, but seriously, just when you think it's going to be quit on the 'Chip front there's a new remix. This time by other blog favorites Supermayer.... What's a boy to do.

Enjoy this quality remix which for some reason reminds me of the classic Erol Alkan remix of Boy from School. This mix is what would epitomise that feeling of "We should be going home now - right after this tracks is done"-feeling. It's infused with just a dab of techno, I can't ask for more. Enjoy:

A reoccuring theme on this blog is getting disapointed with the line up at Roskilde Festival. I'm not sure whats going on in the bookers' minds - It's gotta be something along the lines of: "Ok, they've proven themselves in the 90's or been playing live for the last 5 years on various festivals - Now we can book them". It's not impressive what they've got on the poster by now. The Chemical Brothers are as relevant as me at a car show. Or so I thought, lo and behold, I actually like their latest collaboration with Spank Rock. It's back into familiar drone techno territory, chunky beats and the Spank riding them like surfers on the perfect wave:

Finally there's a couple of really good Todd Terje mixes floating round the good ol' interweb these days. Firstly there's a really good remix of Chaz Jankel part of post punk kings the Blockheads. It's from a career retrospective worth checking out! The piano loop in the second part of the song is stellar:

Second track is from Jose Gonzales and is just a perfect example of scandinavian branded space disco. It sounds like a Studio release, long echo effects, roomy and with just a bit of ice crystals:
