Wow, one pops off to the beach for two weeks and comes back to a world exploded with music. Some absolute greats from Yuksek and The Magician (check out The Magician‘s remix of Yuksek‘s On A Train from the EP of the same name), and Mustang have given us two absolute beauts, with their remix of Golden Bug‘s Sex Beat from the Magia Potagia EP on Gomma, and their remix of Monarchy‘s I Won’t Let Go from the EP of the same name new from Moda Music. Made to Play have made a limited vinyl pressing of Round Table Knights remixes, with contributions from L-Vis 1990 and Homework, and that happy santa claus of techno Claude Von Stroke has remixed Girl Unit‘s 2010 banger Wut, which has made EVERYONE pretty excited, but no release date yet from Night Slugs. Finally Aeroplane releases My Enemy from the We Can’t Fly album, and even if you own the album the EP is worth it for the Rex The Dog remix alone.
Compilations are coming thick and fast too, with Moda Compilation Volume 1 out 23 May, including the first original material from Jaymo & Andy George, starting with their Night Music EP, and last week Lee Foss and Jamie Jones added another string to their bows with the first volume of the Hot Waves compilation, released of course on their own Hot Creations label. Chilly Gonzales brings us ‘orchestral rap’ withThe Unspeakable Chilly Gonzales album on 6 June on Gentle Threat/ Schmooze, and Toddla T‘s new single Take It Back is out on the mighty Ninja Tune on 23 May; a forerunner to his debut album to be released on the label later this year.
Obviously you’ll be spending all your money on these new releases so I’m going to save you some clubbing cash this weekend and tell you of two pretty epic free parties. Tonight, That Mixmag Thing #13 is at the Queen of Hoxton with Oliver Lang, Super Recordings Showcase and my favourites Riotous Rockers (their April mix was a joy as usual), and tomorrow Field Day host a free party with Omar S, Caspar C and Midland at XOYO. Well done all.
