Mix Monday #2

We had an interesting weekend me and Ben... Saturday night was supposed to be a jolly knees up at Chew The Fat! where Ben was DJ'ing in Room 2. However, it turned into a bit of a flop. Come 10pm and I still hadn't left my mates' house in Acton, where we were pre-lashing before popping down to see Ben. He'd been selected as part of a final lineup for winners of a DJ competition setup by Chew The Fat!

We still hadn't left at 11pm either, and I was becoming frustrated. Ben was already there, psyching himself up for one of the most important sets of his DJ career to date, and I was waiting for someone to blowdry some socks. I finally reached Aldgate East station at 12:30, just as Ben was scheduled to start.

When I got there I found a queue longer than life itself, with a, one in, one out door policy. What then followed what much cursing by myself at my cronies for their shocking ability to get ready, by the proposed leaving time of 10:15. Ben then came out of the Venue at 1am, as he had been put on half an hour early, because of a no show. Not only did I miss Ben's set, but I also missed A1 Bassline, Foamo, Pirate Sound System and Raffertie. I finally got in at about quarter to 2 to catch Warrior One, Randomer, DC Breaks and Bare Noize. DC absolutely killed by the way, I strongly suggest you check him out!

So, a bit of a shocking night in all honesty... but, let's just congratulate Ben, because he eventually won the competition for his "daringly creative mixing and tune selection. Well done, a big year is ahead of Ben I am very sure of it, as he's been signed up by Chew The Fat's DJ agency... bigups! We will keep you posted on future Chew The Fat! nights that Ben may play at.

Anyway, let's get started with the first post of the week... mixes!

It's that time again... when Kill Em' All returns to Fabric for another all night disco stomper, this month with the holiest guest of them all... Erol Alkan. What better way for us to get in the mood for such an epic night, than Stopmakingme providing an hour of glithy and melodic electro/techno beats.
Focussing more on the music of now, this is exactly what I'll be listening to come 6pm on Friday night... ready to lace up my dancing shoes for the night.
Sporting some new remixes, including his fantastic rework of We Have Band's Divisive, this pretty much sums up his sound in the club down to perfection, top mix!

1. Green Velvet & Kid Sister - Everybody Wants
2. Boy 8-Bit - A City Under Siege (Stopmakingme Remix)
3. Tiga - Sex O'Clock (Matias Aguayo Remix)
4. Populette - Mommy (TBD Remix)
5. Booka Shade & Marc Romboy - Everyday Of My Life (Martin Landsky Remix)
6. Sven Brede - Sweat

9. Lykke Li - Dance Dance Dance (Dixon Edit)

11. Sounds Superb - Pseudo Wind
12. Boogie Corporation - Dirty Rips
13. Kraftwerk - Aero Dynamik
14. We Have Band - Divisive (Stopmakingme Remix)
15. In Flagranti - ExExEx (Golden Bug Remix)
16. Pink Skull - Peter Cushing

Next up is L-Vis 1990 and his awesome new mix for Redlight's In New DJs We Trust show on Radio 1Xtra... half an hour of crunkin house and future bass vibes. You heard it from here first, but that Ripe Banana VIP will set the tone for the bass sound of 2010 for sure. So hypnotic, I played it out louder than life a few days ago from Bok Bok's January mix, it just goes straight through you! These two continue to shape the future of UK dance music, the diversity of their sound knows no limits and they will bury you!
Also, please check out the newly released United Groove Remixes EP out on Mad Decent now!

8. L-Vis 1990 – United Groove (Buraka Som Sistema remix)

The last mix comes from one of my favourite producer's of 2009 in Lee Mortimer, and no it's not just because we share names... he is literally a legend. He apitomised everything that was genuinely good about the old fidget scene (Snake Pit was brilliant)... and he's pioneering the more credible sounds of the post-wobble exodus... Superman with Foamo being his latest exponent.
It's sad that I've never witnessed a set from Lee, I've passed up the occasion far too many times because of money issues and such, but he's definitely on my must see list this year.
