Mixtape! Getcha mixtape!
Another mixtape for you here. This one's a bit more dancey than the last one, with a focus on stuff that's rocking the 'floors of clubs the world over. Or not, maybe. Who knows what the kids like these days, really eh?!
YER MAM!'S SOLID GOLD SMASHES VOLUME TWO: NIGHT VERSION
- LCD Soundsystem - Sound Of Silver (C2 RMX Rev. 3) (Cryptic title, but solid silver bomb. Carl Craig, as always, gives everything a sort of neo-futurist sheen and a surging, insidious beat. Pure class.)
- Chromatics - I Want Your Love (From their new album - can you actually call it an album? CD-R? - Night Drive, this is a widescreen, Italo groover. Anyone else of the opinion that Ruth Radelet's the most alluring singer around right now?)
- Cage & Aviary - Giorgio Carpenter (This one got a limited release recently on the hip, new London-based label, Dissident and here it is in all its ten minutes-plus glory. Hypnotic.)
- King Creosote - You've No Clue Do You (Atlantic Conveyor Mix) (Should KC ever decide to hang up the arran jumper and take to doing house PAs for a living, then this is approaching what he might sound like. Hey, you know what? It's a look that suits his careworn, but passionate voice.)
- Mocky - Catch A Moment In Time (Ewan Pearson's Memory Blissed Remix) (Revisited this one from a couple of years ago since its appearance on Ewan's recent Piece Work remix collection. Definitely one of his best, but it could do with a dub. That vocal gets hell of annoying after a few listens.)
- Ilya Santana - Quasar (Pete Herbert Remix) (Been knocking around for a little while this one but its got better with time in my opinion. Fans of Pete Herbert's work with Reverso 68 and L.S.B. won't find anything majorly surprising here, but that spring-loaded bassline will make you move all the same.)
- Karizma - In Tha D.ee.p (Another one that's been around the block a bit but I'm jonesing for all things Karizma at the moment so I thought I'd stick it on here. Superb house music for mind, body and soul.)
- DJ Gregory - Elle (Ame Piano Mix) (Those Germans really are making a name for themselves recently and this kind of track is exactly why. Shuffly, subtly shifting tech workout with a slight latin tinge. Nice.)
- Moloko - Forever More (My love for the new Roisin Murphy album made me go back and dig this one out. One of the most overlooked and greatest singles of the decade in my honest opinion, not that you listen to little old me anyway. Proper end-of-the-night tune.)
- Dame Shirley Bassey - Slave To The Rhythm (The Glimmers Mix) (A real show-stopper this one, but can Dame Shirl do any other kind of tune? Gal's got balls.)
More where this one came from. Keep an eye out...
