Thursday Is The New Friday

So many events on this week that my mind may not be able to handle it all. LMFAO is tonight, tomorrow is the usual hi jinx @ Goodform, Friday french electro giant DatA cruises into the Peg instead of L.A. TYVM, and Friday sees the return of MSTRKRFT. Our friend Jamall Knight will be opening all of the above shows so you'll hear more than enough dope tracks to get you sweaty for the headliners. I will most likely not be at MSTRKRFT because I have seen them and after all I will have seen DatA do a DJ set the nite before so I'm sure I'll cope just fine. Here's a little pre wknd party playlist from the mind of IAN RANDOM

Sunday Post

The last time we all got excited for the Count and Sinden was when they hit us on our 'Beeper' but they have returned with some 'Hardcore Girls'. Recently signed to Interscope and touring with M.I.A. 17 year old prodigy Rye Rye is the B More hardcore girl vocalist on this one and like the effort put forth on Diplo's latest she makes the track hum with her Lady Sovereign style dub step delivery.

Gomma records just keeps dialing in the the best in funky offebeat house music. Here we have Germany's Munk getting Down In L.A. with Shazam. 'Live Fast Die Old' was remixed by Ed Banger Allstars and The Juan McLean and with this single they keep the house fire burning by enlisting one of the hottest Aussie producers right now. Upcoming remixes for Shazam also include Sneaky Sound System and Empire Of The Sun(OOOOH baby)
DL : Munk - Down In L.A. (Shazam Instrumental remix)

And now for something that I think you'll only find in the pages of VR is a new snippet of the 'Jack' EP by Greek tech funk producer Kreon. Smooth glitch filled percussion and vocals bounce over the quasi jazz melodies. Classic VR intellihouse here. As usual nowhere near the party tracks found elsewhere this one is for the late night heads who take house seriously.
DL : Kreon - Clorpe (original mix)

Something interesting sent to us via Soundcloud was this John Dahlback remix done by Chicago's unsigned assassin Addiction. Michael Sansone shines the bright lights of Chicago house onto the disco dancefloor with killer originals found on his myspace. His remixing is right there keeping the same frenetic, funkafied pace.
DL : John Dahlback - Blink (Addiction remix)

Lee Mortimer just keeps on nailing it with remixes of Foamo's 'Rockerman' and now he's put the Sawtooth to the biggest duo in U.K. electronic house that go by the name of Tong and Spoon.
DL : Dave Spoon & Pete Tong - Gas Face (Lee Mortimer remix) .

Smooth synth driven masterpieces seem to the mark of any good Aussie original or remix. Well then I guess its no coincidence that both artists involved in this excellent rework are in fact Australian. Every single person who read these words needs no introduction to Cut Copy, I am however happy to recently learn of the fantastic Hundreds and Thousands. The song 'Earth Girls' from their myspace player reminds me of my youth where every damn song on the radio had synth and it pretty much drove me insane....oh how things have changed! Now I am finally free to love it due to its underground DIY ethos.
DL : Cut Copy - Far Away (Hundreds & Thousands remix) .

German producers BEENS also sent us some colossal shit with their new track called "What You Think' . Hip hop vocals blast over a helicopter chop melody carried by relentless underlying bass intensity. Fidgety and funky beats that spawn visions of dark, smoky, warehouses.
DL : Beens - What You Think

'Latest Hits' Lee Mortimer

Lee Mortimer's 'Latest Hits' has been released by Dubsided records this week. Having also released the 'Dominion Dubs' EP from Duke Dumont + DJ Fame, Herve, Induceve, Jesse Rose, Sinden, Switch, Solid Groove, Speaker Junk, Trevor Loveys, Voodoo Chilli etc.. they have been creating some the tightest intelligent dub house out there.

Lee Mortimer (AKA Sawtooth Sucka) has been steadily making waves with his productions and DJ sets by taking every opportunity to supply ears with exciting, sleaze-filled fidget house.
Having started with the humble Commodore Amiga before he was even a teenager, Lee has now firmly established himself as a top-notch recording artist and has had tracks and remixes on CR2, Front Room Recordings, Made To Play, Jusin Long’s .dotbleep Recordings, Chris Duckenfield’s Odori, Aquasky's Passenger Records (Lee's remix of 'Call Me' by The Bodysnatchers is in the Buzz Chart right now) and many more. Dave Taylor's Dubsided Records have recently knocked on the door too and an EP is now in the pipeline.Lee’s DJ-ing roots are in the underground, sweaty clubs, late nights, Stella Artois and Sambuca. This motto has followed him wherever he has played including as far a field and San Francisco (EndUp), Chicago (Smart Bar) and Lithuania, plus all of the UK's top spots- Ministry Of Sound, Turnmills, 333, The Egg, Back To Basics, The Custard Factory etc. An Australian tour is also pencilled in for November. Lee has been rewarded for his passion and hard work by being picked by Ministry of Sound to be their brand new monthly resident. Lee takes to the decks at the world renowned club on August 23rd 2008. Watch this space for more details. Now concentrating his efforts into his own label, Wearhouse Music, Lee has come into his own with his production creativity and A&R skills with all tracks getting majorly caned!

Thank the heavens it's Friday and a long weekend to top it off. Time for a few wobbly pops. My beloved Alexander Keith's. A pint or 5 may be needed tonight to wash the week off and enjoy some new tunes. If you are looking for a place to souse yourself and listen to hot new indie electronic you should check out LO Pub under the HI Hostel you would be in for a treat as they LO Pub is first to the beer pump with the Imperial Dance March. What is the 'Imperial Dance March' you ask?

To celebrate the return of the Imperial Pint in Manitoba on Friday with an epic dance party. MIKE B, JAMALL KNIGHT + CROSSTOWN RIVALS, and cheap, legal Imperial Pints of our finest on tap. $4 for 20 oz. of beer! What the hell?!? $3.00 Cover for the dance party! What the double hell?!?

Pre-game starts at 2 PM, dance party starts at 10 PM.

So in honor of the show I wanted to get your pre party started with some new music that I have so dutifully collected like a little squirrel.
