London electronic mashup collective get together with guest vocalist, Memphis rapper Count Bass D, to rehearse playing their new track “Ready for the fight” live. Booga from Ezio deps for Guthrie Govan on guitar as Guthrie as away touring. Song featured on EA Games “Fight Night round 4″ game. Song released summer 2009.
It ‘s pure coincidence that when written, the destinations of our next two DJ bookings visually look similar. There’s no master plan and the similarity ends here of course – getting ‘Trashed’ in Dubai as we intend to in Dublin could land us in the ‘nick’ Grooverider style so we’ll need to keep our focus sharp!
Anyway, if you’re in either Dubai next week (Thursday, May 14th) or Dublin the following week (Tuesday, May 19th) then come and join us for a night of serious breakneck mashpop and punkstep – friends who spread the word by linking on blogs etc get guestlisting! Just drop us a comment to let us know and we’ll stick you down..!
Hear this and more! >>>
Our second rehearsal playing this new track live. Still learning – but getting there!
This is a remix I did of Seven Nation Army in 2005 I think. It seems to have started bubbling up on a number of cool blogs over the past few weeks, usually in a pretty lofi form, and since it is next to impossible to buy, I thought I would post a better quality version here.
People are seeming to think it is a remix of the White Stripes original, but actually it is a remix of a cover version done by Openair, for release on Skint records. The record seemed to disappear into development hell, and to the best of my knowledge never really got released properly despite being quite popular.
For reasons best known to me at the time I decided to make the track into some kind of disco meets basement jaxx party number, and I recorded a whole disco track on bass, guitar, 70s synths, drums and live brass, in my bedroom, mixed it down, then sampled it and cut it up to make this mix. That was really at the tail end of the “Room 5 Make Luv” era disco house and was probably kind of going out of fashion. in 2009 however, with disco making a big resergence in London, the track seems to have a bit of relevence again, though I wouldn’t make it sound exactly like this if I were making it today.
Anyway, its something of a lost classic, that people seem to like, so have a listen.

When we got to the studio this morning, Wez said some rather excellent street art had sprung up round the corner since midnight. Check out “Rose Closed”.
New video for the Pet Shop Boys by OUR illustrator and video maker Han Hoogerbrugge. Excellent work, but just for the record, we were there several years before. What with Neil Tennant wearing a Bowler Hat to the Brits, its starting to feel like they are stalking me!
