Ever wondered what Faithless would sound like as a polka?
Our guitar player, Guthrie Govan, is now playing with drummer Marco Minnemann who is mad enough to compose Drum solos based on the rhythm of Monty Python sketches!

Who wold have thought that The Darkness would sound great as a disco anthem?
Ambitious to deliver a project live that was so fundamentally created by the possibilities of one man and a multi-track recorder.

This video is a who’s who of london music. Who can you spot?
Simply beautiful video and audio mashup by Phil Retrospector taken from the awesome MASHED POPPED PUNKED mashup album, which you can download here. 3 songs, 2 movies, creating something new and moving.
The Young Punx return for their second studio album, a startling and inventive exploration of the deliberate destruction of genre boundaries in electronic music. Probably the first album in history to have toyed with drum and bass, heavy metal, electropop and cuban timba within the first 5 minutes (!) “Mashpop and Punkstep” is a vibrant manifesto for the next generation of mashup music. Featuring the epic collaboration with Memphis hip hop Don ‘Count Bass D’ – “Ready For the Fight” (already heard as the theme music for EA Games “Fight Night 4″ and as official entry music for world middleweight champion Arthur Abraham), the J-pop electro disco of SugarCandySuperNova and the Ragga House of “Juice and Gin” the album spans Puccini Opera, Punk rock, hip hop, synth pop, Japanese rock and much more…
“[The Young Punx are...] jubilantly shredding genre boundaries, swooping like crack crazed Magpies to grab their favourite shiny bits with maniacal gusto” – Clash Magazine
“It’s like a cross-section of contemporary music, totally amazing” – Disco Demons Blog
“I think Mashpop and Punkstep is already one of the best party albums this year!” – Extra New Music Blog
It struck me the other day that less really is more. It’s also been my mantra these past couple of weeks “clean living is good”. Here at TYP HQ we focus a lot on increasing the payload; we like to keep adding, topping up, and going a little bit further. But there needs to be balance. Space and room to breath and think; regain focus and sharpen your senses.
Yacht “Don’t Fight The Darnkess” (DFA)
I’ve been trying to find a way to describe this track by uber-band, Yacht and i think Rolling Stone said it best with “Precisely programmed digital ear candy”. Signed to James Murphy’s cult label, DFA, it isn’t any surprise that i should now find myself obsessed with their output. Take the time to discover Yacht for yourselves.
Thanks to Regnsky for this.
