Djedjotronic Feat. Spoek - Dirty & Hard (Original Mix)
Seeing as the tradional music industry model of peddling hard goods to an end consumer is broken... where does this leave things? Giving away music for free? Not at all... it means there is a reintroduction of that long lost commodity of the music world... Scarcity...
This edition of Loose Change, I share with ya'll some rare vintage (in blog years) tracks... only now in a high gloss coat of paint... ya know, not a myspace rip or something like that... the real stuff.
Proxy - Ready 2 Rock (Al-P edit) (Zshare) (Mediafire)

Spoek mention above his mix was dedicated to his friend Shawn Mortensen, who sadly passed away, about a week ago. Shawn is actually how I meet Spoek. We worked together with Shawn on a Nike AM90 video which starred Spoek, it was a rather unique experience for me which I really enjoyed. Shawn was an extremely talented and gifted person, who got along with everyone he met. My only regret is that I never got to spend more time around such an Individual, as he inspired me to better myself and find the small pleasures in life. Our wishes are with all of Shawn's family and close friends at this time.
Below are some of my favorite pictures which Shawn took, please head over to Shawn's website to view more of his incredible work...http://www.shawnmortensen.org/
I know I havent posted much lately (good reason aside)... but with this post, that will all fall by the wayside.
Theres not much I need to say about these two tracks that hasn't been said already... ya know, about how anticipated they've been or how Boys Noize, D.I.M. and Erol Alkan have been provoking crowds with the mysterious monster track "Mirror Error"... so instead, i just tell ya to have a listen to Das Glow and Djedjotronic's rewhipping of The Faint.
The Faint - Mirror Error (Das Glow Remix) (Zshare) (Mediafire)
The Faint - Ghost in the machine (Djedjotronic Remix) (Zshare) (Mediafire)
These tracks are so good, you should go buy strip steve's remix too and the other tracks as .wavs so you can edit your own version once everbody starts playing em out.
Jeez, more Turbo... this time actually from Turbo Boss, Tiga...
I know Ive talked about his new album already, and that its good, but not really about how much of a piss take it actually is...
Tiga - Beep-Beep-Beep (Zshare) (Mediafire)
..but still it is good, and so are the remixes...
Tiga - What you need (Proxy Remix) (Full length) (Zshare) (Mediafire)

Its good to be back after working my way to freedom through a hideously large and terrible corporate client project... and to celebrate, lets dance... turbo dance. I mean, not the kind of turbo that Jordans into, ya know the fast & furious 5 kind... Im talking bout Turbo records new double disk compilation, Omnidance, celebrating their 10th Birthday...
Theres alot of us that have been anticipating Omnidance and the mad barrage from its acid infused electrotech contents... reason enough to celebrate for sure...
... I mean, who hasnt been waiting for the full length, full quality release of crookers rioting rework of 2008s biggest festival track, Raven?
Proxy - Raven (Crookers Remix) (Zshare) (Mediafire)
...Or Tiga's Tigas childhood friend, Mike Minds reinvention of acidtech?
Mike Mind - Acid Machine (Zshare) (Mediafire)
...and what about the KGB trained Proxy adding dancefloor clout to Moby?
Moby - I like to Move in here (Proxy Remix) (Zshare) (Mediafire)
All a dam good reason to celebrate.
To dirgress, the great thing about Turbo is that it is that good but doesnt take it all to seriously...
I mean like this next track, its hilariously honest about the techno scene, but still good...
Kolombo - Sniff (Zshare) (Mediafire)
I've been away (and it's been so long and tiring...) and I struggle to find internet... Bunched between a Krugersdorp brothel masquerading as a hotel and macky Muldersdrift hospital that has seen far better days before we happened to come across it's path...Man cockroaches in a Hospital is so wrong...
But Anyway Bloc Party are releasing a new version of Intimacy (YAY or Boo, for however you felt about the Party's last musical outing, for me it was a YAY!) Any way the new version is of course all over the Internet's, no surprise there really. The album is remixed Album which is remixed by some super hot Masters and some very not so much talented idiots... So here you go! Here's the track listing and two of the remixes I actually like...

Zombie Disco Squad are two young Djs from London (I heard 1 of them was born in Durban but moved to the U.K. as a wee babe, but can't reveal my source as it would appear as shameless name dropping), they are approaching the scene from such an acute angle, their music seems to cross various genre boundaries liberally and without passport every season. I guess it's house based rhythm that is stripped bare, fed with meaty miami bass while peppered with lashings of Baille Breaks and Tribal drums and vocals.
Their music has always kept me interested, I'm always keen to hear in which direction they have taken with every new song or remix of theirs I uncover. They have probably had the most staple track I've ever held onto in my sets (in an age where music isn't pasteurized and the interest expires before tracks are released), their remix of Kids On Vacation. That first break forever thrills me, and they show house music in it's true light since "House" has been a dirty word for so long. If I owned the "Kid's On Vacation" single on vinyl, it'd be ratty, warped and it'd hiss at you like an angry cobra every time the needle dropped.
We might someday see them on our shore's since their padre' Mowgli was here earlier this year, and would gladly
let them nosh my brain for evening.
This is some personal info from their agency's website:
"Zombies say YES: claude vonstroke, trumpets, tomtoms, baile funk, vans shoes, penfield, coffee, brazil, man recordings, tartlet recordings, dan m, berlin, london, house music, people that say please, jack daniels, vodka, sanpellegrino, bot, phra and the rest of the italian new wave, get rude, dj funk, lil wayne, frankie knuckles, african rhythms, brie & stilton, stickers, free clothes, partyharders, booty call.
Zombies say NO: new rave, breaks, blog house, dreadlocks, slow computers, bad mp3s, crap promos, writers block, rollerblades, mens cycling shorts, sandals, rain, bad design, bandwagon jumpers (suddenly like disco?), ryan air, nazis, cheeky promoters, skins, cheapskates."
And on some other unrelated Zombie news, try watch a 4 part 1 hour show called "Dead Set", to learn what would happen if Zombie Apocalypse broke out during an eviction night on Big Brother.

Dam, can ya'll believe we this far in the year already? What feels like eons ago we posted about all the musical genuis we were looking forward to this year... only thing is we didnt really follow through with letting ya'll know about things as they were released... all excuses aside, not one single release mentioned in that post was disappointing... and one release that has been in heavy playlist rotation is Zombie Nation's Zombielicious.
Its so dam tight... its like the Homework album of 2009. Im not even kidding. His organic acid electro creation is nothing short of a masterpiece... but ya'll shouldnt take my word for it... Instead listen to my most favourite track off of it.

2. Get It
3. Supercake 53
4. Radio Controlled
5. The Fact

Designer Drugs - Back up in this (Le Castle Vania and friends remix - NBK edit) (MediaFire)
Mixtapes are what blogs are for in my opinion, they show cause DJ's talents, new tracks, edits and there set lists. We in SA do not have nearly enough local Muso's and DJ's creating mixes, so when a local makes one, I'm the first person to download it and have a listen... so when my old friend Chris "Casioheart" (A local DJ at the Redroom and many a random huge party) has had a little free time on his hands, he put this lovely little mix together for me, its dark and poppy and wonderful ( Even though it's not exactly what I prefer listening to at the moment, I still fucken enjoyed every minute of it) It's a great mix to play at a chilled party or in your car...
