Do yourself a favor and go listen to Mr. Pearson's remix of Goldfrapp over at his Myspace page. I've literally listened to it seven times in a row. Don't love the burble-y synth bass (or at least how it comes off in this context--might be cooler on the floor), but the rest is perfect!

A post about how much Optimo rule forthcoming.

If you havent yet downloaded it, that Westbam/ Superpitcher collaboration is fantastich.

Some cool news: Jen Amadio and I are working on a segment for Current TV with the dudes from Optimo. I'll let you know when its done and ready to run. Should be rad. We interviewed them earlier today, and I'm heading off to get some footage of their set in NYC right now.

Good weekend, all.

Forgot to put this up. Me on Compost's new one over at Earplug.

Artist: Various
Album: Compost 200: Freshly Composted
Label: Compost
Release: December 2005

Though the imprint has been tagged as a "future-jazz" label, Germany's Compost shouldn't only be judged by that lukewarm standard. To the contrary, Compost has 11 years of leftfield dance music under its belt, and this compilation showcases some of the brightest of its recent output — some of which has been previously available only on vinyl. Fellow travelers like Laurent Garnier, Maurice Fulton, and Justus Koehncke make surprise appearances remixing a range of label artists, and the album's sounds span from the slow, stand-up bass-driven jazz on Alif Tree's "I Feel Blue" to tight, crisp, broken beats of Eddy Meets Yannah's "Shamed (Domu Remix)." Henrik Schwarz steals the spotlight, however, with his remix of Wei Chi's "Faces and Places" — a dubby, Basic Channel-inspired cut with lively percussion and subdued jazz piano chords that perhaps best illustrates exactly how broad the reach and vision of the label truly is.

Things, briefly:

1. The new Optimo No Wave Mix
2. Recent entrant into the music blogosphere (and close friend) Karl Briedrick's Burnt Brown Sounds, intended to "turn people on to clonopin waves, dusty jams, and chlorine feels."
3. Slow Motion Radio Station
4.. "ofcourse there ar ethe other distractions,
sitting in the garden with your 12bore shotgun,
large orchestras doing drum machine noises,
getting suits made,
canal boats,
modular synthesis,
tax investigations,
global warming and the end of life as we know it,

The Carl Craig remix of Delia Gonzalez and Gavin Russom is easily the one of best things I've heard this year. More details on release to come.

Lady Sovereign- Random (Menta Mix)
Easily the best remix of any Sov track I've heard.
