Hijack is doing it right as usual. Today he brings us a brand new beat under the awesome Busta Rhymes sample he used previously in a collaboration with Santiago & Bushido. He titles the track “Pudding,” a potential obfuscation of the words in the sample (puttin’ it = pudding it), and uses a photo of Bill Cosby eating some kind of Jell-O pudding product as the artwork for the song. What more could we ask for?
A special treat are the pleasantly panned grinding gremlin sounds that enter at both 1:47 and 3:50.
Last Week my single ‘So Sweet’ was released with a wopping 10 remixes from a bunch of fresh talent providing styles of house and electro. Unfortunately due to a hick up, not all tracks released were mastered, but never fear….this actually works out better for you guys. Quality masters of the remixes by Jack Union royalty ‘Campbell‘ and rising star ‘Kunter:Bunt‘ have been now been provided for free download on their sound clouds.
I’d like to take a moment to speak with you about a musician who, surprisingly enough, has never been featured on CYV™ | CHW YR VTMNS before. Someone truly remarkable. A Swede-turned-Brit named Peo de Pitte who takes his beats with extra cream.
Fusing house, electro, breaks, and a trace of hip hop into unquestionable dancefloor gold, Peo has earnestly worked his way to clubland notoriety. He meticulously crafts tracks that could just as easily be heard in the DJ sets of heavy hitters like Benny Benassi and Laidback Luke as in the more underground world of fidget and breaks.
Peo puts a heavy focus on his mixdowns, which means when you hear that Peo sound on a festival-size system, you will be experiencing a top-of-the-line brain-vasion.
Please check out…
• Peo de Pitte’s new original, “Who Do You Love?” – which has been blasted across the blogosphere over the last few weeks. In this song a man’s voice confronts you with two very direct questions about your life. These questions quickly lose their urgency when Peo slaps you with a baby-powdered palm of wonk to the face.
• His Jay Robinson remix, a thumping peak-hour earthquake of a beat that could raise any nation’s security level to red.
• And his latest remix, uploaded a few days ago: Peo’s take on disco…
And of course I can’t leave out his two most well-known songs to date: “Burning Up” and his “Riverside” remix.
Tomorrow CYV is lucky enough to host the godfather of digital DJin and the controllerism movement – Ean Golden – at our San Francisco monthly – Bangers & MASH. We’ve been working on this event for quite some time and its gonna be HUUGE !!
Ean’s accomplishments in the DJ industry are world renowned. He introduced the midi-fighter controller in 2009 with industry leading build quality and a ground-breaking mapping. Propelled by Ean’s mind-blowing live perfromances Midi-Fighter was an instant success. He followed up in 2010 with the Novation Dicer which is now the industry standard for digital vinyl djs. One year later Ean worked closely with Native Insturments to bring us a product that literally reinvented digital DJing. Traktor S4 is to digital DJin what the iPhone was to cellphones, hands down the most revolutionary thing to hit the DJ world in the past decade. Traktor S4 has gone on to be the number one selling all-in-one controller in a category it invented. Ean continues to bring us revolutionary product developments through his own djtechtools.com including revamped Midi-Fighter controllers, custom high visibility knobs, and a curated selection of dj accessories – only the best of the best.
His live performance uses a palette of custom controllers: various bass heavy genres are effortlessly blended together into a show that merges art and technology in a meaningful way. Part rock show, part controllerism performance and part dj journey, Ean really puts everything on line at every performance taking it far beyond a traditional dj.
I may have just creamed my pants a little. Broadcasting live from the Oh My! beat fortress, I bring you the latest and greatest from Dave Taylor. Switch has long since been one of my favorite producers, and honestly, I’ve been a little bummed about his left turn into the baile-daggering world of Major Lazer. Granted, Pon de Floor changed the game — but where did everyone’s favorite wonk-house wizard go?
Anyways, enough with the talk. I pressed play on this beast and have once again bestowed my faith upon Taylor. This track is nonsense. Just.. utter greatness. A nice chunky stuttered kick and punchy snare accompany the pumping atmospherics in the background. The bass wobbles are proper wonky, flashing me back to ’09 — and don’t forget that lead whistle-wobble that bounces in and out on its quick 1/16th beat rhythm. YUM!
Coming out on Sugarcane Recordings on Dec. 15th. Oh yeah, and as you saw, the release also features remixes from Two Fingers (Amon Tobin & Doubleclick) and Hot Chip. Mark your calendars and grab da hotness!
Lets all take a second and hope that there is more of this juiciness to come. Thank you again, Dave. This track will be in my sets all damn month!
The best music is grown in California. Good In The Hood showcases the freshest crops of dedicated Bay Area musicians and sound engineers, each carving out their own personal piece of the musicsphere. They may be young, new, and still deciding who they want to be, but the point is someday we feel they will figure it out and it will be epic. Till then, read up, listen up, dance and tell your friends.
Let’s talk about sexy. Let’s talk about silky, sweet seduction. Turn down the “in your face” and turn up the “on your knees.” The genres and sub-genres spanning Indie Electro, Disco House & beyond are almost like the romance languages of dance music. Their masters are few and far between. Artists like A-Trak, AC Slater, and Treasure Fingers are able to wield their sounds properly so that even the most resistant recipient won’t be able to avoid feeling coy, happy, and lustful. We are no stranger to San Francisco talent here at CYV so it shouldn’t surprise you that our latest disco fix is provided by Dynamics, a pair of genuine boogie aficionados; we often see them alongside SF nightlife favorites Realboy or performing at the famed Our House Records events. In a sea of newly minted DJ BRO’s mashing Beatport’s Top 100 Dubstep / Electro charts, this duo is stepping way outside the box & turning it into a damn disco ball.
Today I want to shed some light on our very own Rubberteeth. In the most recent news, one of his remixes for Carbon Parlour was featured in Benny Benassi’s radio mix #176 (11/20/11). You can check that out here. Talk about your big name DJ support on that. Effin Benny Benassi supportin’ that rubwobble.
On top of that, the kid has been droppin’ new fire on his cloud almost every week. Here are a couple of his latest bootygroovers:
Also, catch this remix that WellSaid and Rubberteeth did of Duck Sauce’s ‘Big Bad Wolf’: Mediafire Download
Keep your eyes on this guy. He’s destined for greatness in 2012.
