The Videodrome mk VIII

Wednesday, 11 June 2008

i have concluded that being poor really really does suck. i missed SO MANY good artists at Sounds and around town..
watching these videos really felt like i was rubbing salt into my own wounds (sorry for the dodgy quality)

Chk Chk Chk - Heart of Hearts @ The Metro

i was actually really disappointed that i didnt get to see !!!.. i fell in love with them after i heard their cover of Magnetic Field's 'take ecstacy with me' which is an awesome chillaxed, bass driven ditty with seemingly innocent and almost naive lyrics despite the subject matter..
word on the street is that on stage they become the most smashed people in the world.. watching smashed people try to perform truly is fun.

!!! - Take Ecstasy With Me (Magnetic Fields Cover)

!!! - Yadnus (Still Going To The Roadhouse Mix)

i reckon the yadnus remix has the most awesome laid back 80's kick similar to Underworld's "Underneath the Radar"- an absolute classic.. "see ya later, see ya later hhhuuuuhhhhh.. we live underneath the radar.."

modeselektor is a bit of a mystery to me.. from what i know of them, they makes really cool grimy beats similar in style to siriusmo (which is definitely a good thing). that little video snippet from Sounds looked really awesome..

Modeselektor @ We Love Sounds

pfadfinderei is a massive graphic design house in Berlin that hooked up with the modeselektor boys recently to produce the massive visual album (aka dvd/cd package) "labland dalbin".. such an interesting combination- not only really interesting beats but also some wikked designs and animations.. interesting to see how colours and shapes and bass and melody can act and react with each other..

Pfadfinderei & Modeselektor - Bell Lane

Boogybytes Vol 3 Mixed by Modeselektor tracklist here

as an added little treat for y'all, ive managed to track down and oldschool Cut Copy DJ mix from 2005.. I dont think that they get enough credit for being really good djs.
this mix sits in tempo somewhere between their FabricLive mix and 'So Cosmic"
