One of my boys, aka Bearplane ( aka Philippe, just mixed up a techno EP, entitled 'The Portrait of the Artist as a Dead Man'. Now, just because im prefacing this with the fact that I know him doesn't mean his stuff is going to be shittier than what i normally put up. His stuff covers quite a few different stylistic environments, but my two fav songs remind me a lot of Moulinex (which is a great thing, since Moulinex is dope).

Give em a listen, their worth it

Sonic Truth

I stumbled across Sonic Truth yesterday, and have been listening to their 20 track promo pretty much constantly. They are a gruop of djs from North Carolina, and their promo tape is a collection of remixes, mashups, and original tracks spanning all kinds of genres, from electro to dubstep to downtempo to hiphop. They are all worth checking out, and you can do so for FREE, right here!

My Love (Diplo Remix)

Diplo takes a hit at Timberlake's 'My Love', and knocks it out of the park. His rework is simply beautiful. It brings out Timberlake's lyrics perfectly, it emphasizes the nature of the song, and just generally kicks ass. Fantastic fantastic rework

In other news, MIA had her baby boy, who is apparently healthy and already making mixtapes with his mother. Sweet.

Fare Soldi Remixed

A couple sweet remixes of Fare Soldi's 'Survivor' just dropped into my box. Fare Soldi are Udine, Italy based synthrockers with a definite pop flair. The original is pretty sweet, but the remixes are pure gold. First up is Saint Pauli, one of my fav acts (who don't get enough exposure in my opinion).

The Saint Pauli remix has a nasty pumping bassline and some hot hot drums. This one is a definite killer. Also, if you havn't heard much from Saint Pauli, I would highly recomment picking up their 'Suden' EP.

Next up is a remix by Keenhouse, who pumps out something a little more synthy and slow, that is until you get into it. The hook hits really hard, with a much more syth driven line than the previous mix.

First up is Don Diablo's remix of Walter Meego's 'Girls'. The original is fantastic, and Diablo hits it up with a nasty bassline and a hot break. def worth your bandwith.

Ive been travelling over break, which was effin sweet, but had no internet. However, Im coming back strong.

Death to the Throne sent me two SWEET remixes that are fantastic. The first is a triple vocal mashup of Bucky Done Gun, Pull Up The People, and Jimmy. pretty sweet, if lazily named 'New MIA Song'. Check it

New MIA Song - Death to the Throne (YSI) (zShare)

Next up is a remix of M83's Teen Angst. He really doesnt play with the vocals too much, but kicks up the synths and drumline to make the song somewhat more upbeat. The interplay between the soft vocals and the pumping synths is really cool.

PS, if you were wondering what could keep me away from new music for a week, peep the pic. Nasty, eh?
