Never being boring

Posted by DJ • May 10, 2013 at 07:27 AM

30 years in the business, and it looks like the Pet Shop Boys are laughing at the face of laws of physics. The duo has a new album coming out in July, and this track, Axis, sounds totally vibrant and up to date, while drawing from a rich tradition of electronic dance music.

The surprising factor is that we can’t really hear the familiar voice of Neil Tennant, as the track is a pure adrenaline rush of pulsating synthesizers and drum machines. Press play and lose yourself in the music.

Imagination

Jessie Ware is a UK star, making her way from the underground scene of London to the national charts in no time at all. She’s now trying to take over the world, and this new single, produced by UK electronic music star, Julio Bashmore, is her attempt at doing just that.

It’s a great 90’s sounding dance/pop crossover, and we hope it gets her all the world attention she deserves. Check it out, and check her album, Devotion, on iMesh

 

Back to the Basement

Posted by DJ • April 20, 2013 at 01:52 PM

Basement Jaxx are a UK duo, responsible for ground breaking dance music in the 90’s & 00’s and some of the greatest pop moments of the previous decade. They are now back with an infectious new song, Back 2 the Wild, which is a great piece of psychedelic, tropic pop, with an extraordinary video.

Give this a spin, and see how you are drawn back to the wild, listening to the cries of mother nature!

 

Money in the Banks

Azealia Banks is destined to be a big name in 2012. This song was doing the blogs rounds last year, but will blow up this year with Ms. Banks getting signed to a major label and getting featured on the Skins tv series. Don’t get left behind, make sure you get on board the Azealia train now…

 

 

 

We love you anyway

We love Cee Lo! We seriously do. Everything he touches and does has a certain charm that we don’t see around a lot in today’s manufactured pop sphere.  So when he releases a new track from his latest album: The Lady Killer, we happily stand by him and shout: “Team Cee Lo!”

And if you haven’t done so yet, it’s never too late to grab the album from iMesh

 

League of Justice

Posted by DJ • October 03, 2011 at 08:17 AM

Justice, the French electronic duo and alleged heirs to the Crown of French electronic music currently held by Daft Punk, are back.  Audio, Video, Disco – the first single from the new album, carries all the usual evidence of a Justice hit: infectious melody, heavy traces of 70’s pop songs, a thick beat and a glamorous video.  Watch it right here while waiting for the full album to drop…

 

The Rapture is upon us

New album by indie-disco kings, the Rapture, is here, and this song, lifted from the album, is one of the most exhilarating tracks of the year so far.

How Deep Is Your Love, not to be confused with the song by the Bee Gees, is currently killing dancefloors worldwide, and is up there, with the best of the work by the Rapture, and indeed, the DFA label.

There isn’t an official video for this so far, so just press play and listen while you’re grabbing the track on iMesh

The return of the ginger headed star

Posted by DJ • August 24, 2011 at 11:31 AM

Florence’s first album, from two years ago, was not an instant success, but gradually  it became a worldwide hit, positioning Florence & her Machine on the brink of mega-stardom. And if you think that a quirky English girl is not made from the right stuff, think again. Think Adele..

Anyway, Florence’s new song is everything we hoped for: upgraded production, soaring melody and irresistible delivery.

Crash test dummies

Africa Hitech are Steve Spacek & Mark Pritchard, two English musicians who relocated to Australia a few years ago (wow, that’s 3 continents in one sentence!). Their latest album, 93 Million Miles is one of the best bass heavy electronic albums of the year so far, and the lead single off it has just got a brand spanking new video. Malfunctioning robots, crashing cars and urban chaos are all magically co-existing in this great piece of audio visual goodness..

By the way, the main sample here is probably familiar to you from Damian Marley’s huge hit from a couple of years back, Welcome to Jamrock, but the original vocal cut (Out in the streets, they call it murder..) is from World-A-Music by Ini Kamoze, which was released back in 1984.

 

Living on the Edge

Posted by DJ • June 21, 2011 at 07:51 AM

Lady Gaga has released another youtube scorcher, the video for The Edge of Glory. Compared to her previous videos, this one is perhaps a little more restrained and a little less jaw dropping, but it is still a hundred percent Gaga…

Speaking of which, the old master of video spoofs, “Weird” Al Yankovic, has just uploaded his take on the Gaga phenomenon, he calls it Perform This Way.

Watch it here:
