Trolley Snatcha. Caspa. Big in 2010.


While DJ McMess (the big boned contributor to this blog) has concluded down his big tunes of 2009, which have been wicked, Denzi brings you whats going to be big in 2010.

Caspa had turned into a badman again. Trolley Snatcha probably helped.

It's going to be this. It's hectic, bad, heavy, disgusting. Every descriptive word a dubstep tune needs. Get on this before it gets taken down and I get bum raped by Blogger notifications or what have you.

Shut the Lights off - Adam F & Horx feat Redman (Caspa and Trolley Snatcha Remix) / ALT

Hotter than your nan's electric blanket.

Peas for 2010!

This is the cover art for my number 1. There was always going to be a clear winner. I knew even after the first listen that it was the one. No hesitation whatsoever. Not only is it my favourite track of the year but also up there with one of my all time favourites. For those who know me a little too intimately you should know exactly what it is seeing as you're probably sick to death of it by now. I'm certainly not. I'm still transfixed with it now as I was when it was released back in March.

'Runaway' portrays everything I adore about electronic music. The addictive, punchy beat is gradually joined by a rapport of whimsical synths that bumble, flutter, float and mesmerise; all wrapped up in an 80's disco cocoon. I'm too romantic about this song. Sometimes it even sounds like the synths are all joined by a giggling cat i.e. from 2.16 onwards. Now I just sound like a weirdo. Just when you think the track couldn't possibly develop any better, in flies the climax. As Dr Nick from the The Simpsons would say "time for a boooooster!" [Description of soaring, climatic 94 seconds has been removed for censorship reasons].
It's pure esctacy.

An extremely messy Denzi, Darrah and myself met Grum aka Graeme one miserable night back in April:



Pepsi are wise and knew it was always going to be number 1 - look what I've been drinking all week! I'm genuinely too scared to drink them anymore.

So this is it then.
The end of a year.
The end of a decade.
The end of this blooming list.

These final two songs have caused the most damage to my desk chairs, as well as a few smashed glasses, countless cigarette burns and the near death of my docking station one particularly rowdy night.

Posted only last month, my number two has barely left my side during these cold winter months. I have been known to have it on repeat for days on end, seriously!
When you draw comparisons with the original, it's remarkable what Russ Chimes has done with Marina & The Diamonds' 'Mowgli's Road'. He's discarded all the wacky harpsichords, glockenspiels and excess jingle-jangle clutter and layered sumptuous, sun-drenched synths over Marina's bohemian vocals. Everything comes together beautifully in this remix; the climatic final 70 seconds is pure perfection.
It's no surprise really; Russ is never a letdown. He's produced some incredible remixes this year including Fabian's 'Heatwave', Frankmusik's 'Confusion Girl' and The Golden Filters' 'Solid Gold' to name obvious stunners. I'd argue, however, that this is Russ' finest work to date.

One life with one dream on repeat.

DURRR. Erol Alkan. Aeroplane. Nice.




Shoreditch. The name of the place sounds like a shithole. But fuck me, last night I realised afew beers, a small abandoned warehouse (The End club) and some Nassty DJs could transform a potential shithole, into a sweaty pit of music lovers with a flashing 'DURRR' sign. Haha. But seriously. It was fucking wicked.

Aeroplane were the lads supporting Mr Alkan. Havn't seen these boys live before, but have heard their stuff....which is not usually my sort of raving cup of tea. However, these scoundrels delivered a massive set, and when my head wasn't in the speaker to the back wall being a prick, I was dancing my tits off. Big time. This is one of my faves which was dropped by the aviation twins. It was probably cranked up by about 10 bpm just to make things abit more pumping......EH AEROPLANE? Sneaky bastards.


The boy Erol Alkan was on next. And to be honest, I was pretty fucked. But it doesn't matter, I knew Erol was good, and man, is he not only good, he's 'spunk-in-your-pants' amazing. Pumping electro with added tech house sweetness packed in with loads of other musical treats....Dream.

Erol might have dropped this. I was dancing either way.


Well Played DURRR. Solid night.

Apparently 'The End' club is shutting down early 2009. But, do not dismay, I'm sure the DURRR crew find find some new urban grimehole to carry on in.

I love you all. Even you. In 2009 if I've been a dick to you, you have most probably deserved it. Happy new year! Celebrate it in whatever you way you see fit. See you pon de floor.


Denzi.

Even if queuing for a good five minutes to be next in line for the service of the bar-keep, I never question abandoning my eighth vodka red bull to go ape shit with the boys to this.

4. DJ Fresh - Hypercaine (Nero Dubstep Mix) [Mediafire]

MSTRKRFT are, fundamentally, an evolution of Death From Above 1979 and are, as their name suggests, masters of their craft. 'Fist of God', their second studio album, is a very distinctive record within the electronic/dance system with nine of the eleven tracks heavily influenced by Jesse's grimey, bass-heavy DFA 1979 essence. Without the two anomaly tracks, the album is one giant weapon to any true industrial-rave hunter. If played in the right place at the right time, tracks such as 'It Ain't Love', 'Bounce', 'Vuvuvu' and 'Click Click' can make a right sweaty mess on the dancefloor.
Root around in the dirt and you'll find MSTRKRFT's secondary member, AI-P (producer of DFA 1979's album 'You're a Woman, I'm a Machine'), bringing his lighter, less daunting electro-pop juice into melodic songs 'Breakaway' and 'Heartbreaker'. The latter, featuring the vocals of John Legend, tells the poignant and all too familiar tale of romantic confusion; when you're besotted with someone and think the feeling is mutual, you couldn't be more wrong; listen to your mates; a story I'm sure most can affiliate with.
I had to check at least twelve times that this little piece of brillianace was definitely a song attributed to the dense work of MSTRKRFT. It is and it fills me up big time.

One morning in 1968 a young Yankee, Sylvia Robinson, rushed into work to tell her colleagues about a dream she'd had. This dream was the birth of 'Love on a Two-Way Street'; a song she co-wrote, produced and passed into the capable hands of fellow city-dwellers The Moments.

*The Moments - Love on a Two-Way Street*

Two years later and the record had sold over a million copies, peaking at number 3 in the US Hot 100.
With the exception of less impressive covers by Stacy Lattishaw and Gloria Estefan, the song has never left the heart of New York City. For years it sat gathering dust, patiently waiting for its melody to be sampled, revived and transformed into a chart topping hit.

Oh and you'll never guess what happened?

6. Jay-Z Feat. Alicia Keys - Empire State of Mind [Mediafire]

If you're an incredibly strange human being and love initiating 'anti-music campaigns', you stand absolutely no chance against Chromeo. They're true masters of combining bouncy basslines, 80's drum loops, playful synths and whimsical guitar solos that, altogether, could easily influence some joyous spontaneity.
Well, they only went and did it again this year with the unpremeditated release of 'Night By Night'. Where the original finds its purpose at the peak of a Montreal houseparty (when everyone's up 'dancing' and spilling Budweiser all over the carpet), Skream's stripped down remix takes us deeper into the night and through the bleak, desolate streets of Croydon (whilst smiling nostalgically and being sick out the cab window).

I've decided I'm going to propose to Ellie Goulding after seeing her live in March. Here's Mrs Ellie McDonald with a right belter.

I don't quite understand the whole "Lady Gaga is a hermaphrodite" joke? Where did it come from? She's clearly not a fella. I don't get it? Where exactly is her cock? Seriously, am I missing something here?
Here's a song
Gaga wrote about the polar opposite to mine and Ellie's marriage, remixed by Ellie's best mate.

"So, would you give Cheryl Cole one?" is probably one of the stupidest questions a bloke can pitch to another. Add "you reckon she's the best female singer in the world, yeah?" and it's time for your mates to pass you a pint of water.
I don't care, I really like Cheryl Cole and her debut single 'Fight For This Love', so that's exactly what I'm going to go and do. From the rooftops. Grab your sniper.

Cheryl Cole - Fight For This Love [Mediafire]

Something I'm quite proud of is getting my 62 year old father into DCUP. He's a right sucker for disco, funk, soul and basically anything that remotely resembles motown. I'm a poor man these days - all my dosh has been blown mostly on McDonalds and mini golf, so for his Christmas present I had to improvise. I thought that a nice, thoughtful present would be to make him a CD full of tracks (that have been produced in the last couple of years) which he would hopefully genuinely listen to and like. I was successful and, like me, he loves this one:

12 & 11 (The EkleroSHOCK)

Welcome to the dark corners of Ekleroshock.

Danger, not to be confused with Danger, was a wise being with his choice of alias. The danger lies with his manipulative influence over any fan of the electronic genres. Danger's productions are a collection of unrelenting sirens to those, like myself, fascinated with 16-bit game soundtracks. Resistance is futile; there is no lighthouse warning.
Danger's second EP, 09/16 2007, came with a previously un-set-ripped track that shares its name with a broken digital clock. 88:88 is yet another seductress on the fatal rocks of Lyon, except more threatening than her sisters. She lures us in slowly and cautiously through the darkness before dragging us into a nightmare world of insanity. 88:88 is the evil twin to Dumbo's Pink Elephants on Parade.
I need to go easy on this Boxing Day bubbly.


12. Danger - 88:88 [Mediafire]

The nightmare doesn't cease here though. Danger has done his bit; it's DatA's turn for interrogation.
Stepping into DatA's debut album, 'Skywriter' is like stepping into the shoes of the Mayor of A Nightmare Before Christmas' "Halloweentown". Like a schizophrenic, 'Skywriter' abruptly switches between the dark, sinister 'Verdict' / 'Aerius Light' / 'Nightmare' / 'Morphosis' characters and the jolly, catchy, fizzy pop 'One In A Million' / 'So Much In Love' / 'Electric Fever' / 'Rapture' / 'Skywriter' fantasties. With echoes of Daft Punk, Justice and SebastiAn; it's impossible to escape.

The end is nigh. Cue the evil laugh of 'Blood Theme'.

HAPPY CHRISTMAS KIDS! Kids? I hate that. We're not all kids you know. How patronising.
Right, so I've tossed the Baileys bottle aside, shoveled my way out of the chocolate wrappers and just about managed to wobble my way onto the internet to quickly post numbers fourteen and thirteen for you kids.

At first I thought I was a bit late on the whole Florence + (so the machine is additional?) The Machine thing when eventually having the balls to listen to her back in July. She's everywhere now though, except in my bed. For me, only two tracks really stand out on her debut album 'Lungs'. One of them is 'Cosmic Love'. No, the other isn't 'You've Got The Love', as that's already been shotgunned by Candi Staton. It's actually this and it's number fourteen.


14. Florence + The Machine - Howl[Mediafire]

Brace yourselves, this one is very Christmassy. Test your Nan's hips with Goldie.

Nah, I wasn't really a fan of Deadmau5 (pronounced 'Deadmau-five' if you're an idiot) when he first emerged onto the scene. Denzi would play his vinyl of the HBFS remix a couple of years ago and, truth be told, I just wanted to throw it out the window. It did nothing for me.
But then, thankfully, with his 2008 debut album came tracks such as 'Brazil', 'I Remember' and 'Faxing Berlin' which, not only healed wounds, but induced complete conversion.
Shortly after, a grittier, meatier track named 'Ghosts N Stuff' surfaced. Incredible. But wait, no one knows what the hell it is. What's this shit? 9 months and a baby later some joker's put a load of vocals over the top. Oi, who's been fucking around with that Ghosts N Sauce song? Deadmau-five has. Oh. It's only got that lead singer from Pendulum on it hasn't it. Ooooohhh Pendulum! They're fucking awesome live! Bloody hell this Ghosts N Stuff is actually welllll good, man.
Add a frighteningly tongue in cheek music video and the rest, as they say, is history. The original was one of my favourites from 2008 and for that reason it's slipped down to number sixteen.

16. Deadmau5 Feat. Rob Swire - Ghosts N Stuff (Extended Mix) [Mediafire]

I'm gunna keep it real now as the bloke who's remixed my number fifteen is not only local but he leaves every other producer in Brizzle looking like a right plonker. Joker certainly ain't not joke mate. He's right up there with the big boys of dubstep and I really enjoy what I'm hearing. He's on the ball, using his intelligence to transform originals into remarkably addictive hits. Right up the hooter. Big time. As Denzi might say, get on this!

18 & 17 (The Elliot School Assembly)

This post is basically an ode to a Putney school. Incredibly, both eighteen and seventeen in ze list are ex-naughty boys and girls of the same Elliot School, an institution that refuses to stop churning out the most gifted young musicians in the country.
The schools most recent exports find themselves with my eighteenth favourite track of the year. In all honesty, I was slightly dubious of The xx prior to hearing them, purely because of the name. Idiotically, I presumed that a band with a name such as theirs would produce a dense, noisy and pessimistic sound leaving any listener with a combination of frowns and gurns.
Atmospheric, delicate and romantic - it's too easy to fall in love with The xx and their incredibly cool album. If Cool was a country then it's national anthem would probably be 'Islands' and I'd be one of it's many refugees.

18. The xx - Islands [Mediafire]

We all have our own 'summer anthem'. Now hanging loose in Brighton, The Maccabees too were products of Putney schooling, not to mention sharing detention with Hot Chip, Four Tet and Burial. Love You Better has sun, sea and romance written all over it.

20 & 19

Over the next ten days I'll be posting twenty songs (a couple each day) that, during the course of the year, have caused a major disturbance in my underpants. By working together as an almighty team and unstoppable force, they have contributed towards the destruction of many desk chairs (from vigorous bouncing), not to mention the complete absence of my degree.

A few months ago I would happily bowl round town for an hour listening to nothing but the funk of Breakbot's remix of 'Extraball' on repeat. However, I've massively overplayed it and now only find the last 52 seconds bouncy enough to break a chair with.

20. Yuksek - Extraball (Breakbot Remix) [Mediafire]

With a genius collaboration I really didn't see coming, accompanied by a visually beautiful video of Tokyo, here's Tiesto at his most creative.

Please download, listen and wipe any subsequent excretion.

Christmas Post.


Whilst the postal system in the UK is getting proper fucked due to all the lovely snow, emails still work.

So, on the email at 4.46am last night (well past my bed time), I got an email from a fella called Mike from the Midlands...under the name 'Murdok' who sent me a laavely remix of Imogen Heap. Apparently one of his first remixes, and he does a fine job creating some warm wubs to match Imogen Heaps melting vocals. Keep your eyes on this man.

Old School Nero.


Nero. Most of us know them as dubstep gods. However, as the world of DnB is being drowned by the dubstep juggernaut, with most DnB producers changing over, (Well, except Zinc) we must remember where these people came from.
From 2007. Nero brings us some fine DnB.....and it just happened to come onto my itunes shuffle just now.

Buraka Som Sistema: Fabric.


Alright laddies. Today, I went to the gym - decided to launch a pre-emptive strike against the shitloads I am going to devour come Christmas day until New Years day. It's going to be ridiculous.

Well anyway, at the gym I slammed the new Fabric on (Fabric 49) - Buraka Som Sistema. Buraka Som Sistema, who started producing music by chucking oranges at walls and recording the sounds... And I tell you what....These guys have got it absolutely spit in my face, kick my crotch, spot on. Christ, chuck in some jump up electro, African Vibe, Portuguese spirit, Dubstep and Hip Hop and you got yourself a fucking good mix. I was PUMPING at the gym, until the fire alarm went off. Obviously was burning too many calories. This is by FAR one my favourite Fabriclive mixtapes of all time, it is so different and brilliantly produced.

A lovely sample off the album for you, one of my favourites.

Brackles.


Alright pals. Been listening to this all day so I thought I'd share it with you. It's massive if you havn't listened to it already.

Lovely and soothing, local Hertfordshire boy Rob Kemp, under name 'Brackles' churns out this lovely dub'2'step remix of 'Heartbreaker' originally by Mr J Legend. Brackles, through his understated backing, gives this song just that little bit extra - pulling on all your reflective chillout emotional threads. Smooth. Check his twitter out here.

Snowy Sunday



Fuck me it's snowy outside in Hertfordshire. I tell you what, I think I am addicted to driving my fiat punto and skidding it around everywhere on the ice. It's probably all going to end in tears though.

Right! Joy Orbison, the up and coming Saaaff Laandanerrr who seems to have it just right. Orbison is producing some ridiculously moving tracks, which just seem to melt into your ears. Orbison takes on Four Tet's 'Love Cry' which is a great tune by itself, and just pushes it even further - which I didn't think was possible. You want this inside you.

Cragga for the purpose of Hype.


Right, I twiddled afew things about this track, because it wasn't posting on Hype, and I want everyone on Hype to know about it.

Now, the man who brought you that bigg number 'Sierra Leone', growing Kiwi Dubstep genius Mt Eden brings forth an epic Archangel remix (that classic by Burial, no?). I suggest you get some speakers and pump this choon whilst writing a rather large essay for 24 hours - pulling an all nighter?

Fuckk. Savage. Anyway, this man brings a loada bootlegs in our direction, so it will be interesting seeing what original stuff he comes up with throughout the next year. Props to rave king Avril Sprockettttt for shouting me this on faceclit. (Pictured below)

So, where have I been then? Well. Prancing around pretending to be a six year old on stage. Come Watch? Thought not. However, admist of being in Uni for about 85 hours over the last week and a half, and admist having written 4000 words, and another 1000 left to write, I'm bringing you fuckers some big toons.

It's coming to Xmas and I can't take the pounding noises from harsh electro at the moment. However, Jon Ferdenzi, a man I know, showed me a Claude Vonstroke song ages ago, and I completly forgot about it. It's biggg, and it's what I need at the moment, lovely original stuff by the man. Claude played in Fabric afew weeks back for his Record Labels birthday, and I heard it was banging. Check this now.

concrete jungle where dreams are made of.

Right, who likes Jay-Z's 'Empire State Of Mind' featuring the lovely Alicia Keys? Yeah, everyone. Well, you'll never guess what? Alicia's fourth album is out on Monday and oh what's this - the last track appears to be called 'Empire State Of Mind Pt. II (Broken Down)'.

If Jay-Z's version is the "New York fun-filled-let's-spend-all-day-in-times-square daytrip", then Alicia's original is the "New York honeymoon". It's one to be snapped up by the die hard Friends fans to play over their 3 minute 36 second long fan-made montage video. This is a bloody lovely song.

recognition

Since the brilliant chaps over at Hype Machine added our little blog to their all-star club of elite music bloggers, our inbox has gradually become fuller and fuller with emails from, not only mcmessanddenzi@yourcocklookslikeALF.com and goochtreatment@veet.co.uk, but many artists, bands, DJs, producers, promoters and perverts. We're flattered that you lot are sending things in to us, especially when you work on the other side of the pond! We do listen to them all. Here are a couple of tracks we've received that, so far, I've listened to more than once.

Filthy Dukes - Tupac Robot Club Rock (Flak Attack Remix) [Mediafire]

Dragonette - Pick Up The Phone (Jaxsur Remix) [Mediafire]

BONUS
I would also like to take this opportunity to share with you a new mixtape constructed by a brilliant man and arguably the best DJ I know. For those reading and from Bath (more specifically Bath Spa University) or regulars at Watford's Oceana, the name 'Ram' is probably all too familiar with you. Each week he lugs his suitcase of disks and arrives at the decks with a purpose. That purpose is to drop the right songs at the right time with effortless mixing whilst, quite literally, tearing the booth apart. So here, take this and play it too loudly in the library please.


Choc Ice - Dec Mix

Cor crumbs, what a weekend. Sunday was perhaps the most hungover I've ever been, so I'd like to congratulate Alex Metric for a wonderful evening. Thanks mate. Here's a suspiciously malfunctioned photograph of Alex expressing his pleasure of having me shout 'Treasuuure Fingerssss?" at him. Someone give the man a towel!

Then of course there was Danyl Johnson failing to make the final of X Factor. Really killed my Sunday that did. Only Janet Jackson's mimed performance kept me in the game. Shame one of her mammaries didn't pop out really...
Her breakthrough record and, to my ears, JJ's finest piece of work is one that poses a question I'd, regretfully, only be able to answer with 'absolutely nothing actually, sorry Janet'. Although a couple of decades old, it cries out for a remix by (soon to be posted on) Bestrack or the increasingly popular DatA. Wooo-oooo-ooohh yeah!

Theeeeen there was Monday night. Our 'long' housemate Mike turned 22 and so we had a wee bit of a party at ours to piss the neighbours off with some hip hop, dubstep and motown. Naturally, out came the beer bong. Here's what became of our other housemate, the infamous Ashe Palmer.

alex metric.

Boosh! Right, so I've put aside the 'Pon De Floor' dissertation, had a few jars of Bath's finest and poshest ale and decided to negotiate 'writing' a post about a young man who, in roughly 24 hours time, will be blowing the speakers of our dear friend, Moles club. I've mentioned the man in question a few days ago, when I popped his La Roux remix of Quicksand on this here blog (which happens to have a very smooth perinium). It is, of course, Alexander Metric.

As well as being extremely hammered, I'm going to feel some disappointment if Moles is fairly empty tomorrow night as Alex has a style that any Justice, Digitalism, SMD or, dare I say it, Bloc Party fan would be missing out on. Here's a couple of Metric pills for you.

Richard Hale. The school I used to go to. Most famously for Rupert Grint attending. However, fuck him, check this out. Better than a ginger nut, Jon Craig, Richard Hale old boy...AKA Cragga has started his producing career. And fuck me, he is starting off with a bang.

So, did that Snowman tune get you pumping? Well. If It didn't you've got problems. However, us over here over at the Gooch are heavily investing in the Christmas cheer, so I'll let you off if it didn't tickle your scrooge-like tastebuds.

Ok.

So as we open up the door into the advent calander... next one up is a big one, and you might want to listen to it before it gets taken away by some higher authority. It's been lingering about a while, and many big DJs are dropping it at the moment. Getting bored of the club banger 'Riverside' yet? Yes. You are. So, TC takes it and Drum and Bass-inizes it. Yes.

Here ya go.

Tis the Season: Advent Treat #1

Well well well. Here we are again. We all know it's Christmas by the well known indicators, from 'Wolf' from Gladiators turning the Welwyn Garden City Christmas lights on, or to the world famous Coca Cola advert 'Holidays are Coming'. Now tis the season to be jolly, especially when my car took about 2 hours to unfreeze itself this morning.

Keeping in theme of the jolly spirit, in your first 'Smoothest Gooch Advent Calender'...behind the door is this little treat I found the other day from Hereldeduke. And a lovely downloadable version of it also.
