my dude ish! was asking me about some as-yet-unavailable stuff from SBTRKT, and i had to confess that i wasn't familiar with anything he'd done.
so yeah, ish! basically got me started, and i did what i usually do: search my hard drive. weird, i know, but i grab so many tracks off blogs here and there that sometimes things slip through the cracks. turns out i had SBTRKT's "Timeless", a rework of Goldie's "Inner City Lights", laying on a drive.
last night i did more 'net-digging and turned up this thing:
It's SBTRKT's remix of "We Want War" by These New Puritans, and it is sweet -- just the right amount of deep and heavy, with a healthy dose of get-on-your-fucking-feet. I may be killing this one next time you see me (unless I'm doing a disco set, lol).
Check the original of the track as well, it's pretty pretty good. And check dude's soundcloud page for some upcoming releases and swell dj mixes.
*Definitely* on the "people to watch in oh-ten" list.
I was just randomly checking the search terms that brought people to my site. This isn't a high-traffic site or anything, so I don't do it often. Today I was surprised to see that so far in February I have had 27 search requests for this:
бивис и батхед mp3
Of course, I had to sound it out (I know most of the letters' sounds, at least), and once I did, I knew what brought them here.
This is my debut release on AERO, the longform mix release sublabel of Race Car Productions. For this one, I'll let them speak for me:
DJ Empirical Party Like It's Before 1990
catolog #: AERO 013
Stephen Boyd is a fascinating character. As DJ Empirical he employs his knack for obscure music collecting and correlating seemingly unrelated tracks just perfectly. Here we find him behind the wheels of a Delorean going back to where it all began.
To add to that, basically I felt like early techno and electro (as well as acid) was not something I was as familiar with as I should be. I figured that doing a set of those tunes would force the research I needed to close that gap a bit.
Enjoy! And visit the AERO site for more excellent mixes.
