Fucking Fantastic February

Truly a fuckin fantastic February so far. This month has seen some amazing releases. Not just in music but in other media as well. Yesterday i got my hands on Alien Workshop's latest video, Mind Field. Its an audio visual masterpiece... amazing skateboarding, amazing soundtrack, amazing artwork... just amazing.

This video alone is worth a celebration, but its not alone as there are other amazing things in the world of alt dance music that have exploded to life this February.

Yuksek

I know we talk about him in almost every post, but it is without a doubt Yukseks month. A couple big remixes and an amazing album, Far away from the Sea...

Les Petits Pilous

While still in the Boys Noize camp, here are two guys making a big noise all over the world. Straight outta France (must be in the water) these guys hammer out something I guess you would call Techno Punk? Its loud, its abrasive and its oh so fucking rad.
Their tracks have gotten playlist prime time from every one from Boys Noize, D.I.M., Mr. Oizo, Erol Alkan all the way to MSTRKRFT. These guys have a big year ahead.
Heres some thrashable tracks, one original and one remix from the Fckn Crew boys from the land down under.

Sound of Stereo and The Bloody Beetroots


Outta Belgium, home to some other dancefloor dictator, must say im excited about their single, heads Up!, out soon and the movement away from LOLdistortion basslines. Sick list of remixes. heres my favourite remix, from our favourite masked italianos the bloody beetroots.

Foamo

Young talent from that little United Kingdom, and newest member of the undocumented family. We featured foamos latest released remix in our shuffleshame mix. I managed to scoop a mix tape he did recently which featured a soon to be released remix he's done and a brand spanking new original. So hot! heres a preview....

CCC and JFK

And saving the best for last! Undoubtedly my favourite club hammer of the year so far. Its punk music made with computers that you can cant help but dance too. This here is a remix of Alexander Technique & Van Scott's track "NightLovers" by CCC... and the remix was so good, it got JFK of MSTRKRFT's undivided attention... so much so he did an edit of it, which was just that much better, it made its way onto the "NightLovers" single. It sounds so insane... so amazing... and I would've kept it all to myself, but this here is a celebration of a great year so far and a better one to come. cheers.
