Foamo – Moving It Over Here

Foamo kills it. I just heard “Moving It Over Here” the other day and was blown away. I have heard MSTRKRFT drop this numerous times live and it is a total dancefloor killer, complete with a Crooker-esque bassline and a vox sample that everyone will sing along to. And this kid is only 21 and was sought out by JFK himself!

Foamo – Everything Cool / Rockerman [Wearhouse Music]
1. Everything Cool
2. Rockerman
3. Rockerman (Lee Mortimer Remix)

“It’s not often that talent comes rising through the ranks fully formed, undiluted, and with as much potential as Foamo (aka Kye Gibbon). For a 21 year old from the sleepy town of High Wycombe, it’s quite an achievement to hit the ground running with his debut single ‘Moving It Over Here’ on Cubism Records, surprising established producers old enough to be his dad with the depth and quality of his engineering skills, never mind the absolutely huge bassline!

With unreleased mixes for Primary 1 and MSTRKRFT already under his belt, this new single for Wearhouse Music, collaborations with some of house music’s finest producers in the pipeline, plus sets at The End, Fabric and Space, Ibiza in his diary already, it’s been a meteoric rise for Foamo in 2008, and it looks like his reputation will only continue to grow.

‘Everything Cool’ is another instant dancefloor killer from Foamo carrying on from where ‘Moving It Over Here’ left off. It’s teasing vocals and a massive bassline hook has ensured it’s been in the DJ sets of Crookers, Kissy Sellout, Midfield General, Lee Mortimer, Bloody Beetroots, HiJack, Drop The Lime, Trevor Loveys, Detboi, Boy 8-bit, Loose Cannons, Stupid Fresh, Nic Sarno… the list goes on!

‘Rockerman’ was dropped by Crookers on their recent essential mix for Radio 1 and sees Foamo displaying his production versatility on this house / dubstep fusion. Perfect for adding a bit of spice and unpredictability to a set and still with enough oomph to get the crowd skanking!

Label owner Lee Mortimer adds a more straight-up house vibe to his remix of ‘Rockerman’ supplying the 4/4 beats.”

JUS†ICE x Dior Homme: Spring-Summer 09 Mix

Justice did a mix for the latest Dior Homme Spring Summer 09 fashion show in Paris, just like Daft Punk did a year or so ago for Louis Vuitton. They dropped a new track. Classic Justice sound, epic piano chords, distorted arppegiated harpsichord, super compressed drums, filtered out synth, all the proper elements of a Justice track. Reminds me of Rondo Veneziano or Yellow Magic Orchestra with some SebastiAn elements. Any info on this would be great. Thoughts?

There is a full vid of the fashion show in the site that features the entire track Justice made for the show. Herve “Musicman” Pouliquen plays guitar on the track. If anyone can rip the full audio from the mix that would be great 🙂
Cheers to Sloblogdon Blogosovich for sending this over.

Cazals x Daft Punk

Daniel from Cazals sent me this cover of Digital Love that they played live on Radio 1 for the BBC a few years ago. Daniel feels it is a weak cover but I think that it is a great “rock” cover of this tune. They even nail the raging guitar solo at the end. Goes to show you how well Daft Punk’s songwriting is and that their music translates well into any genre. God bless Daft Punk.

Cazals – Digital Love (Live on Radio 1)

Cazals are making their live US debut tonight in NYC. Unfortunately I will not be there 🙁 But stay tuned for some Asian Dan Coverage of the show 🙂
