go-go go-go

Sunday, 16 August 2009


do you know much about allez-allez? i sure didnt. but after a few quality remixes and an awesome modular podcast mix in recent times, my curiosity was kinda piqued.. i decided to do some research.

after spending a short time convinced that they were the remnants of an 80's synth-pop band from belgium, i came across their actual site and was rather pleased with what was on offer... every week, allez-allez organise a steamy fresh collection of nu-disco, techno, indie and leftfield electronica to be thrown together by their friends and favourite artists.. some of the artists to be featured in previous weeks include etbg's ben watt, luke vibert, animal collective and tronik youth. pretty impressive huh? im 100% sure that the very next thing you should do is subscribe to their podcast.

in addition to this inexplicable awesomeness is a rad collection of re-edits that are available for free download.. on the whole, they have chosen to add a tiny bit of magic to iconic tracks, slightly reminiscent of todd terje or serge santiago i guess. there is a good range of tracks on there but i think that these two might be my fave:

The Smiths - Barbarism Begins At Home (Allez-Allez Re-Edit)

The Pixies - The Thing (Allez-Allez Bootleg)

allez-allez's site: heaven on earth
