  1. Cool, glad you liked it! I don't think the Slum Village track is produced by Jay Dee actually, don't think he's prodcued any of their stuff since Fantastic... The latest album is on eMusic though. I also haven't heard anymore Matson Jones, New York City Fuck Off was on this years Rough Trade - Counter Culture album... I know it didn't make the long player though. Judging from the track here I think the album is worth a stab, I hadn't realised it was on eMusic but will pick it up myself once I get some more credits! Some of the Secret Machines stuff is a bit longer and progressive than the track here but I love pretty much everything they've done and really recommend you check some out.
  2. 1. Mos Def - Modern Marvel 2. William DeVaughn - Be Thankful For What You've Got (props to Ant73 for this) 3. (The 'Rootsy' one!) Slum Village - 05 This is taken from their latest album, 'Slum Village', and was a pleasent surprise becase I had (like many as the song suggests) writtent them off after their second LP 'proper' Trinity, which was good, but nothing on the 'as good as the title suggests' Fantastic Volume 2 - which you should get if you haven't got it already. 4. Ursula Rucker - Philadelphia Child 5. A Hawk and a Hacksaw - Portland Town 6. Matson Jones - New York City Fuck Off 7. The Roots - Star 8. Ed O.G. & Da Bulldogs - Love Comes and Goes 9. Dave Grusin - Ascension To Virginity 10. Secret Machines - See You 11. The Magnetic Fields - Long Vermont Roads 12. Hanne Hukkulberg - Ease 13. Willy Mason - Hard Hand to Hold 14. Simon & Garfunkel - The Only Living Boy in New York 15. Seu Jorge - Rebel, Rebel 16. Jay Dee (RIP) - Stop Sadly died a month or so back, this is taken from his frankly bonkers album 'Donuts'. recorded in bed whilst he was dying from lupus. He also produced the afformentioned Slum Village LP Fantastic. 17. Hmmm... I wonder... Marvin Gaye - What's Going On Thought this was a nice place to leave it since it's a classic and it takes things full circle since track one is heavily inspired by it. The theme this month was kind of folk-y, soulful stuff, and it's really meant to be enjoyed with a strong, black coffee or a shot of bourbon, depending on the time of day... Feedback please!
  3. I'm off to Barcelona next Monday so better post a tracklist before then... Do you want it before or after feedback? Paulando - I'm off to Barcelona next Monday so things are getting tight in terms of me listening to / giving feedback on your CD prior to my arrival back in the UK on Saturday 8th, just so you know...
  4. Cool, I await your feedback...
  5. Just dropped mine in the post box.. Sorry it's a little late, even though it has been finished for ages I didn't get around to 'blending' the tracks till recently, and then sat on it a week whilst getting round to putting a label on the envelope. Whoops.
  6. That's what it sounds like to me... I love it and 'Teen Angst' is worth the album price alone
  7. Count me in, after a month off I'm itching to put something together!
  8. Cool, glad you liked some of it, and I hope you didn't already know *too* much, as I say, these are some of my favourites from this year so it was never going to be particularly highbrow. I guess I'll have to give up on selling people on the wonderment that is 'Dance With Me' though, which is a shame because I just think it is too good for words.
  9. Sorry to hear that mate... Nothing on the album lives up to Dance With Me, but that track is (IMHO obviously) fantastic. Try listening again, the first few times I heard it I didn't think it was as good as I do now.
  10. Sigur Ros - Hoppípolla makes me want to cry like a girl, the kind of song that makes you realise nothing in your life will ever be quite as fantastically beautiful as this... in a good way. Ben Folds - Gracie brings a lump to my throat.
  11. Correct, but the FabricLive CDs are not necessarily 'urban' - see John Peel's or Jacques Lu Cont's. The FabricLive CDs tend to be a bit more in your face and accesible. The Fabric CDs are deeper and usually have more of a techno feel (but not always - see Swayzak's, Radioactive Man's, Rob Da Bank's or The Amalgamation of Soundz's offerings, any of which could have been Live releases).
  12. XIII wasn't a conversion of a PC game was it?! It was launched on all formats at the same time I think... Yes: November 28 2003.
  13. I've got *almost* all of them and would really recommend: Hipp-E and Halo Radioactive Man Swayzak Michael Mayer Andrew Weatherall Ivan Smaaghe Rob Da Bank James Lavelle Jacques Lu Cont Bent Bugz in the Attic DJ Spinbad Adam Freeland Aim Joe Ransom Scratch Perverts High Contrast The best ones are Hipp-E and Halo, Swayzak and Jacques Lu Cont. Essential.
  14. Okay, no 'concept' this month, just a collection of some of my favourite things from 2005: 1. Eels - Old Shit / New Shit 2. Gemma Hayes - Nothing Can 3. The Cardigans - I Need Some Fine Wine and You, You Need to be Nicer 4. Common - Love Is... 5. Tom Vek - Nothing But Green Lights 6. Art Brut - My Little Brother 7. The Chemical Brothers - Close Your Eyes 8. Arcade Fire - Rebellion (Lies) 9. Volcano - Apple or a Gun 10. WhoMadeWho - Out the Door 11. Tiefschwarz feat. Matty Safer - Warning Siren 12. Royksopp feat. Chelonis R. Jones - 49 Percent (Ewan Pearson Mix) 13. M83 - Don't Save Us From The Flames (Superpitcher Mix) 14. Juan Maclean - Dance With Me
  15. Have you given your CD a listen yet Cubeadvance? Do you want a tracklisting?
  16. If people are enjoying the DJ T and M.A.N.D.Y. stuff posted int his thread may I recommend the Get Physical second anniversary mix CD by M.A.N.D.Y. (it's on Amazon but use an affiliate link!)... I've had it ages, just re-listening and it is absolutely fantastic!
  17. I'm a subscriber to both, and just so you know they've been promising a Tiefschwarz one for about 18 months...
  18. The good name of House has been sullied by that eternal sin, Funky House. Long live the likes of DJ T., M.A.N.D.Y., Trevor Jackson AKA Playgroup, The DFA and labels such as Get Physical, Output and Crosstown Rebels. There's loads of fantastic electronic stuff out there - don't let Mixmag put you off.
  19. You might have to send it with a tape deck though...
  20. Just found the New Pornographers album on emusic.com so am downloading it... They have The Spinto Band album too, do you think it not worth getting?
  21. Supertramp... You got me there! Surprised about the Spinto Band, I was expecting to have heard of them, still, it IS fantastic. Cheers mate!
  22. Okay, feedback for my CD... Sorry it's been a long time coming...! 1. Some sort of bootleg of The Black Eyed Peas - Let's Get Retarded... This is quite cool but lacks the punch of the only Black Eyed Peas I can be in the same room as... The Neptunes stuff is nice. 2. One of the songs from Greece mash-up with Snoop Dogg. I think my girlfriend found it funny because she loves Greece. Surprisingly this works quite nicely and anything that makes Snoop look a bit silly is probably a good thing 3. Dean Grey - Doctor Who on Holiday Taken from the American Edit album, which I finally got around to 'procurring' a few weeks ago. Easily some of the best mach-ups I've heard. This is actually my girlfriend's favourite track on American Edit... I really like the bit with Bryan Adams but this is good too. Very professionally produced. 4. Probably my favourite track on the CD, a mash-up of loads of whistles, with the one from Kill Bill, Centerfold (J Geil's Band?) and Wind of Change proving particular favourites. Very funny. Again, my girlfriend liked it. 5. Primal Scream - Higher Than The Sun... I *think* this is a mash-up, possibly with that crazy dub track about 'Cocaine... Running around my brain' (the name escapes me)? I love Screamadelica but haven't listened to it in ages so this was a pleasent surprise. 6. Very summery laid back song that sounds like it should be the soundtrack to a holiday TV programme. Haven't got a clue what it is, but it's quite nice. 7. Again, very summery but this time with a fairly heavy, dubb-y bassline. Not sure who this is either, sounds quite similar to the track before though, and again is good. 8. Recognise the voice and the style but I'm not sure who it is.... It's quite good, but I get the feeling i is by a band I don't like if that makes sense. 9. God I really know this now I think about it. Almost sounds like it should be Architecture in Helsinki, or The Go! Team, or even both with some Arcade Fire thrown in. It's brilliant and if I don't find out who it is soon I might get upset. 10. Hmmm, again, recognise the style but I'm not sure who it is. It's really great though, like this. 11. Quite cool song that sounds like a cross between The Eels, They Might Be Giants and The Beatles maybe. Like it. 12. "I Love You Jeeeeeesuuuuuuus Chriiiiiist" it starts... Presume this is tacking the piss a bit! Nice grungy backing and kerazy drumming! 13. Seu Jorge - Changes. I presumed this was from The Life Aquatic but I can't actually find it on the soundtrack CD... Where did you get it from? I love it anyway, I've been planning to put my favourite Seu Jorge Bowie cover on a Rllmuk CD myself... 14. I think this is Elton John, but I have to admit my knowledge is lacking. It's quite cool anyway, which is surprising because I always thought I didn't like Elton John and this is the second song I've listened to in the past year by him (presuming this is) that I've liked. Overall a good CD anyway, thought it was going to be bootlegs all the way through but I don't *think* it was, lots of stuff I enjoyed though AND it came in a weird rubber thing. Track nine is fantastic. What is it?!
  23. Any chance of an mp3 or something of this? I've got the 'Sunracapellelecroshit Mix 03' version taken from Scratch Massive's Naked mix CD and it is lush, but would like to hear the original...?
  24. Okay... I've given it a listen and I like it... I shall post comments soon.
