Now, that really is a soundsystem to be proud of. The Dewaele brothers and James Murphy wanted to get back to basics and build a proper disco set up. Add some McIntosh amps to some nice cabinets and drivers, sprinkle them round the edge of a dancefloor and, hey presto, a classy soundsystem!!! We will build our own this weekend. Details over at The Vinyl Factory.
As mentioned at the start of the show, Mike D is the latest artist to be pressganged into making a runway mixtape for a haute couture fashion show. He’s done a freaky mix for Kenzo. [Thx Dangerous Minds]
Speaking of fashion shows, while the Justice “Planisphere” mix for the Dior Homme summer 2009 show is the sweetest of them all, the set that Chromatics did for the Chanel spring/summer 2013 show is super classy.
Fraserhead here. I’m on my own today. It’s been pouring with rain and Sudafed is pumping through my veins. Which makes this brand new Shacklock Meth Party single “Vaccination Day” all the more poignant.
How weird? Well the record label describes it as “rap music never sounding so orthopaedic” and that Strange U are ” invoking the spirts of Oshun, Vishnu, Apollo, Sobek and Jim Henson” in order to “crush Duran Duran rapper with a Dr Claw beer mit”.
For some reason this all makes us hark back to the Infinite Livez’“Bush Meat” album from 2004. So to enable you to compare and contrast here are Strange U’s “Klaatu Barada Nikto” and Infinite Livez’ “The Adventures Of The Lactating Man”
