Here are a few jams to liven up your hump-day. March is just around the corner, time to put away the hearts, and pick up the clovers. Struck out on valentine’s? Mend that broken heart with a little music care of your old pal Bonnaventure:
If you know anything about Icelandic culture, you’ll easily know that it can do NO WRONG! Björk, mandatory daytime running lights, elves, the rival team from the sequel to “Mighty Ducks”. Shall we add Nista/AXXE to that list? It’s too bad that teams in the Olympics can’t form multi-national teams anymore, because the Canada/Iceland duo of AXXE would sweep the podium at the Disco Olympics.
Why not share this track by fellow Montreal wonderkind CFCF?. This masked hooligan and STILLEPOST denizen remixed KINGDOM for everyone to enjoy. I saw Kingdom DJ for MALUCA and it was some type of wild. Let’s hear it for CFCF! The whole this is dropping as a 10″ DOUBLE A SIDE It’s limited and stamped with FOIL, GO GET IT!
Call me a starry-eyed-son-of-a-bitch, but I’m already looking forward to summer. There are some big things in the mix that our faithful blog readers will be first in line for, so stock up on beach towels, sunscreen and swim suits, because we’re going to have an awesome time here in Canada.
An awesome bloke named DIGITS (who I blogged about before) put together a nice mix and sent it my way, I approve 100% and decided to post it up. Contained is a decent amount of icy synth pop, some psychpop and some slow jams. Valentines day is right around the corner, I’m suggesting using this as the soundtrack. BONUS is the SCHAATZ remix of ‘You’re Going To Age’. Check out their myspace or SOUNDCLOUD for more French disco-dreampop!!!!
It’s too bad NROTB weren’t called the New Ravers On The Blog, because, given the times the producer’s handle seems so appropriate.
The Montreal duo have been on top of things for a while, and I’ll be completely honest here, since “Droplet” and “Miam Miam” were let loose in the summer, I’ve been trigger happy with every track that has their name on it. There’s enough nostalgia in each of these tunes for a thirty-something-once-upon-a-time-raver (that’s me by the way) to, excuse me, fucking lose it. Add some of the best production of 2009 to the mix and well, it seems as though there are a million reasons to hail this release as the best ever. Really, ever.
On Friday, February 5, 2010 the single got an official release on PLANT MUSIC with remixes from FELIX CARTALand AUTOEROTIQUE. After hearing these mixes I went into immediate cardiac arrest. Basically, I died and somehow I’m living off of the single’s perpetual beat.
