The Alan Braxe & Fred Falke Band

Whats cooler than two gifted musicians/DJs/producers remixing/producing a great tune together? Two gifted musicians/DJs/producers remixing/producing a great tune under a new fancy project name..... like Diplo and Switch who combine forces as Major Lazer or like the new techno supergroup Machines Don't Care with Hervé, Sinden, Toddla T & Co. ...
Well, in the end it's just a name I guess and it's the music that counts (is it really?). Alan Braxe and Fred Falke don't have a fancy project name and still make some of the smoothest tracks these days.

Van She - Kelly (Alan Braxe & Fred Falke Remix)

You're probably right when you say there has been enough D.A.N.C.E. remixes in the history of mankind.... But you should give this one a chance!

Justice - D.A.N.C.E. (Alan Braxe & Fred Falke Remix) (mp3)

You'll Stay In My Heart is probably the best 80's movie love scene track ever to be produced in the 21st century.

Night shifts

Dude, night shifts take whatever you have in your brains and SHAKE IT!

Like what Madison did to Lil' Wayne's Lollipop...

Madison - Lollipop (Lil' Wayne Cover) (mp3)

Like what Fake Blood did to Cheap and Cheerful by The Kills...

The Kills - Cheap and Cheerful (Fake Blood Remix) (mp3)

Like Bob Marley's Night Shift twisted by the Markov Chain....

Working on a forklift In the forklift, from A.M. (Did you say that? Why did you say that? Why did you say that?) to P.M. (Working all night shift; Working on a forklift In the night shift; Working on a night shift, With the forklift, from A.M. (Did you say that? Upfull and right!) all night shift, yeah!

It's not a boat... it's a YACHT!

Besides the fact, that 103 is absolutely not the proper venue for a RATATAT show plus they had to stop the show twice because 1. total sound black out 2. somebody stole a drumstick (last pair)... the concert was awesomazing! I found this nice remix of Mirando by Jona Bechtolt (& Claire L. Evans) aka YACHT, who dropped his first Album with the most encouraging title I Believe In You. Your Magic Is Real. last year.

RATATAT - Mirando (YACHT REMIX) (mp3)

I like what James Murphy from LCD Soundsystem had to say about YACHT:
"YACHT smells wonderful. I must say, all the time he spent in our bus, it was as if a cool breeze was blowing through my mind. and good songs, too!"

The Stereolab remix makes you wanna go outside and dance in the middle of the street wearing your jammies.

K to the Jay

New Kanye West Video for Champion

Check this new Jay-Z track/ Noel Gallagher diss produced by Kanye West

Jay-Z - Jockin Jay-Z (prod. by Kanye West) (mp3)

I guess in the end everyone really enjoyed the Jay-Z show at Glastonbury. Although he could have tried harder on the Wonderwall lyrics.

Case closed!

Some years ago when I was living with a girl from Italy all she and her friends were talking about was Berghain (or "berg'ein"). It became even more popular over the years. Somehow I never managed to go there ("yeah, well next weekend..." u know?). This weekend I was there and... geez, this place really is another level. Modeselektor and some other cats from BPitch were playing. Modeselektor set was the bomb, as usual!

Modeselektor - Black Block (mp3)

Someone I would really like to be blasting from Berghain's massive speakers is Pirate Robot Midget from Italy.

the mock machine

Blogs, especially musicblogs, are mostly about hyping the music and all. Well, hipsterrunoff does that too, but adds a little (self-)mockery to the game... pretty funny, although I have to admit I still don't really know if being an 'alt' is a good or a bad thing...

I found this picture of Uffie and it made me realize once again, that Ed Banger for me kinda lost its glint some time ago. Except for DJ Mehdi though, his stuff is always fresh!

keenplan is back... in English

Been on a three week vacation... and since once again I got infected by a cosmopolitan spirit I decided to start writing in English.
It's too hot to think today, so I leave it at that comment and post a classic song that has been in my head all day today.

Grauzone - Eisbär (mp3)
