There Be Piano Monsters Here.....

For this final giveaway of songs we caned (candy?) all year long, we turn to two of our peak hour favorites, to compliment the start and end posts we put up last week.

John Selway and Elliot "Ulysses" Taub released this in the fall on the revamped Wurst Music Co.
Somewhere in District 9 the Nuerotic Drum Band must have fed those Prawns some old Strictly Rhythm records 'a la' The Believers, and the electro strut of Synapse, then traded them cat food for the results, which is clearly this EP.

Neurotic Drum Band-Robotic Hypnotic Adventure
At 320 Kpbs- Limited to 20 downloads

At the very first second of the piano loop, you will see the affect on your face.
We didn't play this often, but when we did, i would always regret that we didn't play it more.
Stunning track, one of my personal favorites of the year. Praise for it is unanimous, and you can read why on just about every music site worth it's salt.

Toni Lionni-Found A Place
At 320kbps - Limited to 20 Downloads

more....for the early evening

continuing in this holiday sharing, heres two pitched down tracks from two incredibly talented producers....

6th Borough Project- Do It To The Max
At 320kbps - limited to 20 downloads

The Revenge (combined here with craig smith to form 6th Borough Project ) composed this brilliant slow chugging groove with a catchy sample about 'Doing It to The Max', and since it landed in our clutches, we've self indulgently opened almost every set we could with it.
The Revenge is to house music, as Paul Atreide was to the world of DUNE.

get that spice

Floating Points- Love Me Like This
At 320kbps- limited to 20 downloads

This is a stunning edit/remix/sampling/whatever of the classic Reel 2 Reel track of the same name.
Apparently, besides creating two of the better tracks this year (this and Vacuum Boogie ), he has a day job splicing cells or molding atoms, or something like that.

The nonsense dub mix is also worth tracking down, no lyrics, but a great piano line.

I slept on this track for a while, but since discovering via a very helpful recommendation of 'Vacuum Boogie', we've had it as perfect company alongside the tracks from The Revenge/ Mark E/ Eddie C that usually make up the entirety of our pitched down moments.

3 days of giving you things that work

Over the next three days, we'll post tracks (with limited downloads) we loved from this year, and the songs we paired them with so often they became inseparable, like us, in our sorry excuse for a dj partnership/friendship.

Soul Clap takes some Fleetwood Mac, inserts great percussion, vocal delay, and a thunderstorm (actual precipitation and cloud movement) as the break down. One of the best pop edits we came across this year, and it makes everyone get really cozy with each other on the dance floor. Its a good thing

At 320kbps
Limited to 20 downloads:
Soul Clap - Dreams

Follow it up with this track (my favourite of the two Koze mixes), the horns win:

At 320kbps
Limited to 20 downloads:
Who Made Who- Keep Me In My Plane (Dj Koze Remix)

blend it with summer and the end of a great night

If you miss the download limit
both are available on vinyl, the 'who made who' remix can be purchased at any reputable online store of good repute.

The Soul Clap edit can be bought on the Wolf+Lamb site, along with the B-side which is a brilliant edit of the only Chris Isaac song I know,
and love.

More giving to come

happy holidays

Barely Eagle, but it was Christmas

Well as this year winds down, and the lack sharing that we have done on this blog becomes increasingly apparent, its time for us to sweeten you egg nog fueled living room boogie downs with a song we've been loving for a while now.

Not only did Linkwood (family) put out one of the most impressive long players of the year, with SYSTEM
(go check now, this has at least five songs to burn dancefloors with and the rest all have a specific time and place you will use them for)


They also put out a brilliant 10" with House of Traps on Fire Cracker Records.

Barley Eagle

01 Barely Eagle by MEMBERSONLY

They did the wonderful and sampled the only tasteful part of a criminally unrestrained Dennis Parker on his single for Casablanca 'Like an Eagle'

Dennis, aka Wade Nichols was (im almost certain) the ONLY , porn actor/ day time soap actor/ disco star. Ever.

This all builds on top of an very catchy kick, and is preceded by some distorted mumbling about house and disco music.


here its is for Free at 192 .......
but, even if vinyl isn't your preference, you can download it digitally at beatport and juno.

Here is the video for the original, which harnesses the power of rear projection for a stunningly cinematic result.

happy holidays!
