man.. ive really been feeling some bad ju-ju over the past 24 hours or so. plenty of crappy and annoying things happening. think ill definitely try to ride it out with some quality disco.
first up is "ragysh" from todd terje. lifted from the "ragysh ep" (released in april), this track is typical of the high quality seen in terje's rare original productions.. solid, driving percussion, heavy electronic groove and some cosmic synths later on in the mix. top shelf disco - get involved:
Todd Terje - Ragysh

while we are on the topic of top shelf disco, i have to just quickly say how excited i am to have finally gotten a hold of space ranger's debut album "what about the magnetic fields?". i'm nearly a month late to the party, but that doesn't make me any less excited.
the first single from the album will be "plastic romance". it is a slow-burning, wistful kind of track with a goodly measure of funk and slap bass.
with their mix of this track, motor city drum ensemble take it in a whole new direction.. not happy with just beefing up the drums, they also removed much of space ranger's understated funk and added their own to-the-point synths. but the elements of this mix that i really loved were the strings and keys that slowly enter at around the four minute mark. have a listen:
Space Ranger - Plastic Romance (Motor City Drum Ensemble Vocal Mix)
