The Cool Kids x Hey Champ

Chi-town in the house. Acoustic guitars in Hey Champ tune? I dig it. Don’t worry their signature synth sounds make their appearance. Looking forward to seeing Hey Champ in NYC this CMJ week. Flyer after the jump.

Asian Dan Interview: SCARLETS

Scarlets’ Stefano & Ivan answer a few questions allowing listeners into their musical minds. Their “Boundaries” single is out 11.1.2009 – check out the video for the B-side “The Women of WWII” after the jump and checkout Stefano’s latest mix “KIMONOII”

Stefano Murgia – KIMONOII

Asian Dan Interview: SCARLETS

1. Who is Scarlets? How would you describe your sound?
Scarlets are five italian boys with a lot of sense of humour, but with a very serious attitude towards their music. Our sound changed radically during the last year. Now I guess we sound like an army charging upon the land.

2. What was your first musical memory?
Ivan:The big huge silver boombox radio standing in our sitting room playing some italian songwriters when I was 3.
Stefano: I guess my mum playing Violent Femmes’ vinyls and not liking them.

3. How did the band form? What is the band’s vision and goal?
We formed because of all the crappy bands hitting off british indie or american punkfunk. We just wanted to do something authentic. Our main goal is succeeding in writing 10 songs that we can still find satisfying after two weeks.

Yeah Yeah Yeahs x A-Trak

A-Trak’s best remix to date. I love the synth bassline with that filter and the string stabs. Such classic sounding production techniques. This track has already been championed by Busy P, Erol Alkan and Co. down at Parklife in Aussie now it is all your turn to bump this track. Now I think it is time for some original tracks from Mr. A-Trak.

<3 u A-Trak

Yeah Yeah Yeahs – Heads Will Roll (A-Trak Remix)

Cheers, Disco Dust – May this track spread through the blogsphere like a wildfire now!

Housse de Racket x Gonzales + Side A: Funky Mixtape

Gonzales turns Housse de Racket’s “Synthétiseur” into a “Broadway/epic-the-world-is-mine” sounding tune. Love the guitar solo at the end – reminds me something Queen would do. When is the Gonzales cover/re-working of Erol Alkan & Boys Noize’s “Waves” coming out? Housse de Racket will be opening for Does It Offend You, Yeah? in the UK next week.

Housse de Racket “Synthétiseur” EP out 10.26.2009 on 50 Bones

Ali Love x Azari & III

Azari & III turns Ali Love’s slick Italo Disco tune into dark, dense house tune that would sound best on a loud soundsystem at 4 in the morning while in a very inebriated and in a very dark room. Also I cannot stop listening to the original version of “Diminishing Returns” – Ali Love, Luca C, and Dubka did such an amazing job.
