Proxy is heavy. Throws distortions at you and build up their tunes to a nirvanic dark and dirty techno-orgasmo. “Raven” is their new dancefloor weapon, I can forsee it being used as an advert jingle too (by the way have anyone heard Justice’s “Genesis” on the Levis 501 ad?). Play it loud and see urself shivering during the awesome breakdown.
And it gets better with the remixes! We all know how rocking Digitalism can be, watch Proxy distorts the daylights out of “Home Zone.” As for Chromeo, theres a nice Tenderoni rhythm amidst the heavy heavy techno sounds. My advice when handling Proxy, simply play it loud.
The first time I heard La Serenissima 2 months ago, I was totally floored. This is like exactly exactly exactly the kind of music I am looking for. I was a big fan of Krautrock, Kraftwerk (coming to our shores) and JM Jarre, and after hearing La Serenissima, this nostalgia kicks in and fills up your heart, seems to take you to another epic autobahn dimension.
And then I found out, Eine Kleine Nacht Musik is none other than Riton. Word has it that he was due to form a new band with the Deweale brothers from Soulwax called Die Verboten, but sadly that didn’t materialise. Therefore, Riton went ahead to record an album under Eine Kleine with his brother in law, Fergadelic, supporting him in some songs and the artwork. Would there be a Soulwax remix of La Serenissima? Pray very hard.

The hottest band right now, every decent music blog would have a feature on them. MGMT‘s two New Yorker that doesn’t incredibly sounding electro-rock with psychedelia and folksy influences, kinda like Ladytron but a few notches more rocking.
On top of that, Justice and Soulwax hadn’t touched (choped, caressed, groped, meshed) songs from the same band since Klaxons. So I assure you, this is gona be very very audio-orgasmic. Peep the video first with the remixes below.

A total of 8 different artistes from the raving fidget house genre gang up to form Machines Don’t Care. Truly a supergroup in the UK electro scene. Members include the very awesome Count (Herve) and Sinden, Fake Blood, Trevor Loveys, Toddla T, Detboi, Drop the Lime and Affie Yusuf.
You would have heard all the big name DJs like Steve Aoki and Erol Alkan played “Afro Jacker” earlier this summer season, check out some two other songs from their album which are very raving too.
The answer is that it is the very best fucking thing that ever happened to humanity. Above video is the intro in the DVD by So_Me, goodies below.
Hot hot band from Portugal. Buraka Som Sistema‘s genre is Kuduro, which is a sort of uptempo dance hall music from Angola. Unlike kwaito which is more housy and garagy, Kuduro is more hip hop sounding. And then there’s progressive kuduro, which is the European’s tendency to surpress and systemise the raw drum beats to a more mastered and studio sounding tune, turn it into a house structure and make it more friendly to DJs. Seems to me that’s the African version of Ghetto Tech. Peep the guest artistes that BSS has hooked up with, that includes Diplo and M.I.A.
