Everytime I fell for you

rather not be talking so I'm writing instead.

DJ Hazard and Distorted Minds - Mr Happy
OldOldOLD school drum and bass song, I feel dirty listening to anything where one of the artists has DJ in front of their name. But I'm willing to put up with it for the loveeeeely synthy bit in the song that makes it drop. of course it drags on but what d'you expect?

Project Bassline - Drop The Pressure ( Jack Beats Remix)
This got played at least 10 times at Matt's party on sat, one of the few things I remember was how I didn't get annoyed about it for the whole night. Simply because the drop is utterly insane. It may be one of the best drops I've heard in all electro,fidget, dub etc. The original is pretty tasty too but of course Jack Beats simply can't fail at remixing a track. He is made of pure Win and wobbles.

Chairlift - Bruises (Passion Pit Remix)
Spent a good 20 minutes evaluating this song with chums today, decided that it's nice and chilled but still with enough of a synthy-electro solo bit to make it danceable at party's. sounds like the kind of song couples will dance to and single people will feel lonely when it's playing at party's. Also Chairlift are really fucking good, check them out.

N.A.S.A - Gifted Ft. Kanye West, Santogold & Lykke Li (Steve Aoki Remix)
I think I may have accidentally made a rule that I always post at least one Steve Aoki, Boys Noize or Diplo song per post. But I honestly don't care, especially when it's this nice a fidgety. Plus N.A.S.A absolutely rule anyway (Look up Watchadoin? and Money) even if Kanye West is in the song, at least he's only in it for a little at the beginning. It's not too filthy but it is still a prettttttty tasty tune.

the rest is silence.

or at least until I can be fucked to do another one.

Heaven Is Nowhere, Just Look To The Stars.

Raaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaas lets have some tunes.
This post is thanks to a collaboration between myself and Matt Huddlestone on fb chat.

Drumsound & Bassline Smith - Are You Ready?
Oh wowowow. a song that has instantly got me back into drum and bass. as Matt said "this, my party, alcohol and a bucket of sick". I think that sums up this song quite nicely, it's a heavy party where someone needs to be nursed or they may pass out and die.Loving the mix of the dubstep in the main beat, sounds quite like a calmed down borgore or datsik. But yeah, basically it's rather sick.

Pirate Soundsystem - Bump
LovelyLovely smooth bassline from the pirates who did the awesome wiley remix. Drop takes ages and ages to get there and then just when you think it has to drop they but a pre-drop in, killing the bass and bringing it back in for a hugely-massive-seriously-it's-really-fucking-big drop. Oh I do adore bassline.

Foreign Beggars - Contact (Noisia Remix)
I think I may have posted this before but if you've heard it you really won't care. I first heard it about 6 months ago, must listen to it at least once a week and it still makes me do a funny little dance in my seat when it drops. The original is quite good as well but, as usual, adding drums and a heavyheavy bassline makes it better. Oh and for the people listening to it for the first time, the drop isn't until 1.07, the weird slowed down rapping bit is worth sitting through, trust me.

Sound Of Stereo - Flatland
A billion thanks to Jace for getting me into S.O.S, wowwowowowowowow they're niiiiiiiice. that's a lot of vowels there but they deserve it. Zippers was a absolute beast but now they're back with a tasty new electro tune released on Dim Mak ( Steve Aoki's label) and you know how I feel about anything Steve Aoki related. Flatland sounds like a mix between Les Petits Pilous and Major lazer. Lovely static-y heavy tunes with big old drum beats in the background. MMMMMM that's goood.again with the vowels!

Hot Chip - I Feel Better
Okay Hot Chip have always been pretty good but they've so outdone themselves now, This is easily my favorite song of the week/month so far. The amazing singer from Hot Chip still has his incredibly high voice that made me think he was a she for the first 2 months after I heard them, and he works amazingly on this song. Lots of violins/cellos/somestringedinstrument and a good use of a sampler make this track amazingawesome and any other compliment that starts with A.
Fuck it, I'll stretch to B.
Link ( Quick Note- The video is the most trippy thing you will ever see in your life, I don't think I blinked for the whole thing. Utterly confusing but pretty fucking awesome.)
Link PTII ( plain song, no added bits from video, does actually sound better. )

shit, college.
fuckit. nightms

Natter no longer matters.

Due to unfortunate circumstances my other blog is gone for the time being.
Not sure anyone cares that much but let me know if you do, trust me it's a humdinger of a good reason.

With this song I thought it was nessecary. Haven't heard something this good for ages.
