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’:
Keep your eyes on this guy. He’s destined for greatness in 2012.
My debut EP dropped yesterday. Catch a few jackin’ house tracks I made over the past couple months — all with a bit of my signature ghetto flavor.
Here’s what Bone Idle had to say about the release:
“We have worked with Oh My! right back when the label was first started and he charted on Trackitdown with his first remix for Andru Pozzatron making waves across the soundcloud community with his unique style. When he’s not running his ever popular blog CHWYRVTMS or doing amazing designs (yep he did his own EP cover above to perfection), he’s locked in his studio banging out tunes of the twitchy, cut up house variety. Oh My! has a particular style in his sounds, with a brilliant ear for samples, he can take any sound/snippet/hit and turn it into a complete track with each part carefully placed to create an amazing collage of joyous noise (check out his Double Rainbow remix of Kunter:bunt’s ‘The Brightest Color’ for a fine example of how theYouTube rainbow man made it to stardom).
His debut EP doesn’t sway from the remix styles you all know him for, and once again we are excited to present three original tracks from the master of jack. Pack your bags, were off to bounce!”
Grab it up on Beatport and support ya boy!
Hope you enjoy the EP! Lots more stuff on the way!
Meet Claire Bradford. (I urge you to check out her soundcloud..she has recently posted some remixes for WoNK and Kid Komas. Talk about killin it!) She is the mastermind behind the ever-so-fidgety record label, Bone Idle Records. And in case you haven’t noticed, I’m a big fan of their stuff and will continue to support their awesome collective of artists.
Here is a little background information on the wonder woman from Brighton. Carbon Parlour hit the highs when her 2008 track ‘We Would Like’ saw a release on the revered Jack Union Records. The creation of We Would Like also saw a switch in production styles for CP who previously found herself firmly working the Electro and Breakbeat camps. Her early influences of Digitalism, Justice and Evil Nine worked their way into the studio but she soon found a need to find her own style and this was soon answered when she heard her first Solid Groove track. With a love of big bass, big beats and looped samples she soon started working on an unknown piece of music that within a day worked its way into the giant We Would Like track that eventually made Charles Feelgood’s must buy list on Beatport.
Carbon Parlour has releases on Jack Union, Baboon Tunes, Finger Tache Records, 2 Bubblin’, Big Alliance Records and a debut EP on Bone Idle.
CP sticks to her jackin’ house style on all three tracks with a very strong opening production. Flipside has gained huge support on Soundcloud, most played most loved and most wanted on her page. This track leads on its strong beat which has been cut up to give tiny fragmented bouts of silence giving it the jackin’ style we know it for. Flipside uses short bursts of vocal mixed with a strong low end bass that throws the dancefloor into a shape throwing frenzy.
Box 1 is slightly darker than Flipside and warrants a serious listen, however its status in the mixtapes shows its a strong contender for second place. Taking a slightly crudded, scratched up counting sample, throwing it over a siren synth layered with vinyl affected beats, and then mashing it all together, CP works to provide another jumped up sample cruncher.
Finally, Calibre requires a cigar and some serious head nodding. This track focuses on its use of beats, layered claps, dutch snares and thudding kicks. CP heads deep into her audio bank here and comes up big with some fine audio chopping. Small snippets of vocal bass and percussion make Calibre a fidget funk fest!
Pick it all up on Beatport.
And hey, it’s not over yet! Claire is giving out this Crookk remix of Box 1. Quick, gravitate that mouse cursor to the download link and slurp this one up!
February saw the drop of Schenk’s latest release, a 4 track EP entitled “OK” featuring his very tasty original, and three remixes to accompany the release. The original mix of Ok! is a fine example of what you can expect from a Schenk track, stripped back jackin’ funk with crisp clean mixing and production. Like all music, house can fall into so many different sub genres and one thing we look for in our signings (Bone Idle Records) is something a little different. You won’t find a saw or wobble bass here, but what you will find is a floor shaking sub and kick which keeps the track ebbing and flowing throughout. Expect funky fidgety synth/guitar/vocal stabs and breakdowns with a very creative alternative to a white noise build. Don’t sleep on the remixes either, Carbon Parlour, Bassion & Shyne, and 6T9 all put their respective twists on the track, rounding out the release with a bit of electro and some alternative housed up interpretations.
And you can pick up some free downloads accompanying the release from Riggers and Dala (visit the Soundcloud for a download):
And up next, we have a totally free EP with three tasty tracks for your listening pleasure. Schenk truly exhibits his maturing style here, giving us that signature pop in his work, while not overpowering these smooth tech-house grooves. He walks the line between softened synths and the choppiness of Chicago house to deliver a toned down jacking sound. I feel like some of these tracks are just what I need in my earlier/opening sets — tech with some bark, no bite!
Mochipet twists up Hottub’s ‘Four Lokos Only.’ Electro-hop at it’s finest! And hey, it’s a track about the infamous heart attack in a can. Every college kid knows what I’m talkin’ about.
And here is the stuff that “overflowed” from my last post. What overflow actually means in this case is that I didn’t properly close one of my tags and everything beyond that portion got cut off. Cheers to my A+ web savviness.
6T9 chops it up with this new mix for SAFidget House — a blog dedicated to the fidget movement that is quite prominent in South Africa. After a long hiatus, they are finally back, and will be serving up that fidget fire on a more regular basis.

The Warehouse is a mix series hosted by Uberjak’d and Rubberteeth, and it broadcasts to a listener base of over 180,000 people per week on a station called Fresh FM. Carbon Parlour had the honor of doing a mix recently. Some juicy tunes up in this one, so give ‘er a listen. (Tracklist and download on the cloud)
Andru Pozzatron’s ‘Get On Up’ is a funk-infused house track with chopped filtered vocals cascading over a backdrop of fidget beats and a hard-edged synth lead; we love the drop and build in this track and judging by the feedback, so do our listeners! Check it out.
About the remixes:
To complement ‘Get On Up’ we got in a bunch of remixers that would put a different spin on the original. Oh My! had already impressed us with a string of bootlegs and taking second place on the release he strips back the original and gives us some beautiful cut up fidget with clean crisp beats and a bass that makes us keep on playing this one. Coming in next is Carbon Parlour’s ‘Everybody Up Rerub.’ We wanted electro and she delivered us a bomb for the dance floor — this builds into a drop with a bass line the crowds will love. Schenk then takes us on a journey and turns the sound upsid- down with what we can only describe as a “cool street life fidget remix.” Anyone who is familiar with Schenk’s vast catalogue of releases will know his productions are pure quality; you have to hear this this one. Finally, we mentioned diversity, and Footjam delivered with the final mix. He puts in an immense amount of time and effort into his tracks and continues to surprise us with his unique sounds, so expect some heavy synths and mind-bending percussion in this remix.
The above copy was all written by the label — so I’m not honkin’ the hype-horn on myself here. Very excited to bring you this release, as it’s my first label release, as well as the gateway into my music being distributed on Beatport, iTunes, Juno & more. Get down on this Beatport button and support Bone Idle Records and the amazing artists I get to sit beside! Oh, and one more thing — I made the EP art too.
