Well, the first half of the Big Day Out line up is out….but is it really that ‘big’ though? We’re not that sure…
It’s tracks like this that make you want summer to hit the main stage and beam those rays of sun light. ‘Tonight Is The Night’ by Outasight is just that….a ray of sun light. It’s out of sight but definitely not out of mind.
We’re loving all things french at the moment and this ode to ‘Les Filles Francaises’ by The Jude is just what the doctor ordered.
I always used to love the track ‘Piano In The Dark’ by Brenda Russell but you’d probably have to travel the four corners of the globe to hear that now. When I heard this sampled remixed version by the Bingo Players, I was as happy as two fat ladies.
I was just about to hit the hay, when some golden magic hit our inbox. The golden joy in question is an artist called DiscoSocks….and he will literally blow your disco socks off.
We’re not normally ones for repeating ourselves but when a remix of this quality drops of a track we’ve already featured, it would be a criminal act to pass it up and not share it with you.
They’re not wrong you know, I know we like, we know we like it and ‘You Know We Like it’. Awesome track by Alunageorge. Another one that’s creeping up the rankings in the wonderful world of the blogosphere.
If you are a big fan of Metronomy and you love Erol Alkan, then have we got a track of delightful proportions for you. The track ‘The Bay’ has received a mighty remix by Mr A and we’re loving it.
If you want a dreamy track that’s like a balearic version of a Toto song, then this one is for you. The Lovelock remix of Washed Out’s ‘Eyes Be Closed’ is a classy sunset affair if ever there was one!!!
My giddy goose. The track ‘Twist’ by OhLand featured in the movie Abduction is one catchy song that is romping on line in the blogosphere of musicland. Oh ‘Music’ Land!!!
The supports for Okkervil River’s upcoming October tour have been announced. Joining the Texan five-piece in Sydney and Brisbane will be Mike Noga, acclaimed solo artist and drummer for the much loved Melbourne band The Drones.

Peter Gabriel reinvents his greatest works with the album ‘New Blood’. It’s out October 11th performed by The New Blood Orchestra.
Yes folks, the day is upon us in Melbourne that we’ve been looking forward to. Parklife 2011!!! We are armed with the excellent Parklife iPhone app which has a map, a planner for the acts (clash clash clash) and more importantly, we know where the toilets are…which is always an important fact at a festival....
Kenton Dunson has released his debut music video ‘Firestarter’ from his critically acclaimed album Creative Destruction 2. If you thought the track was good and the album was good, then you’ve got to see this exclusive video.
Not long to go before the Parklife Australia music festival in Melbourne. To get you going for Melbourne we’ve put together a Parklife 2011 mixtape of ‘nearly’ all of the artists announced so far.
Mr Frank Ocean is a fine talent. His contribution to the recent Kanye West & Jay Z album was pretty awesome and his ‘Nostalgia, Ultra’ mixtape which came out in February this year is damn fine ear candy indeed.
We’re big fans of Groove Armada and after listening to the first track off their Red Light Trax EP, we’ve got to say that this is up there with some of the best work they’ve done. Tom and Andy have gone back to early 90′s deep house and boy have they done a great job....
Time is ticking down to Parklife 2011 this week (or back in September if you’re reading this post event) and one of the artists we are looking forward to is Little Dragon.
Zang Tuum Tumb and Salvo Music are proud to present Blueprint, the definitive career overview of one of the UK’s most important, pioneering and influential electronic groups: 808 State.

If you are a lover of The Weeknd, you’ll get some extra joy with this version of ‘The Morning’ featuring Kenton Dunson which has been remixed by Chi Duly.
The nominees for the 2011 Jagermeister Independent Music Awards have been announced and the list features some cracking artists.
Unpeel Foreign Orange and take a big bite of Ghost Vibrations. If you love bands like Cut Copy, then you’ll dig the vibe of Neil Dez and his Portland chillwave.
A lot of stuff gets us excited but this is bloomin’ marvellous. A really quality retro futuristic mix with a quality mixed video too.
Another day and yet another amazing track by the rising band The Socialytes. This time they’re bringing along Sinead Fahey for the musical ride with the track ‘Can You Find My Love’.
So many awesome new releases and remixes but so little time. At this rate we’re going to get some form of wrist related disease from typing up all these great reviews….which brings us to the Marina & Diamonds track ‘Radioactive’ and the Chuckie Remix.
It’s always interesting when you hear artists take well known tracks and add their extra sparkle to it. The artist in question is Jaiden ‘The Cure’ with his reworking of Kanye West’s ‘Runaway’ under his track ‘Illusion’.
It’s only a month since we had the luck to find the track ‘Video Games’ by Lana Del Rey, but how the magic of Lana Del Rey and her tracks are accelerating her growth and popularity online….and how indeed!
Here is the exclusive new single ‘Twistin’ It Up’ from the Australian Hip-Hop artist REMi featuring Stealing O’Neal’s Chris Scott…..and it’s a quality affair indeed!!!
It is now less than 2 weeks to go until Parklife hits Australian shores and what better way to get your fix of the future sounds than with a remix of Tensnake and his track ‘Something About You’.

If you want a slow burning track that kills it, I’d dive into ‘Get Buried!’ by The Creepy Crawlies which features on their Denial is a Free EP.
Here’s an exclusive mash up for the folks on a Friday. This one is so hot off the press it isn’t even on the mighty Hype Machine yet….well, it is now this has been posted. Link ahoy!
Here’s a thunderous mash up by RUINMYTUNE. Two tracks that I wouldn’t have expected to be put together would definitely be ‘Last Friday Night’ by Katy Perry and ‘New Year’s Day’ by U2. Still, they work together very well indeed.
LA Five Piece White Arrows are about to release their first single ‘Get Gone’ and we were told that it’s a synth’ laden slice of what’s to come. After listening to ‘Get Gone’ we are definitely hungry for another slice.
I think we must be on remix vibe mode this week as everything that we’re digging up and unearthing is either a quality mashup, a reworking, a remix or all of the above. Take this great remix by DJs From Mars of Adele’s ‘Rolling In The Deep’ mashed up club style with the Robin S...
Nirvana’s classic album ‘Nevermind’ will hit it’s 20th anniversary this year. To celebrate this, CinemaLive will be screening the never before seen ‘Live At The Paramount’ concert for one night only on Friday 23rd September at 9pm across Australia.
Start your week with a banging dance track provided to us by the German DJ/Production duo, Chrizzo & Maxim. Their track ‘Runaway’ featuring Amanda Wilson, sounds like a blazing Ibiza anthem and this one certainly gets you in the mood for a great Aussie summer.
