Woody’s Roundup

We’re in Berlin this week, so we’re missing out on the flurry of Bank Holiday weekend activity in the UK. We’ll report back from Bergheim instead, where we’re seeing Radioslave, Luke Solomon and Spencer Parker for Rekids Nacht tonight.

We’re relying on you to represent in our absence, so here are a few of your options:

Off Modern‘s last big blow-out before the summer is on Friday at Corsica Studios, featuring My Panda Shall Fly, The Boogaloo Crew and Zarcorp (Late of Pier). Off Modern are curating the entire weekend, also providing a free party at The Rest is Noise in Brixton on Sunday.

On a hot weekend it’s definitely worth a road trip to the seaside to see Filthy Dukes at the beautiful Kraken Wakes (from the people that brought you the Lock Tavern) in Portsmouth tomorrow, or, if you tend to gravitate towards the nearest car park for a Bank Holiday rave, look no futher than Bugged Out’s Mad Decent Soundsystem at Union Street with Diplo and Drop The Lime, or Mulletover, celebrating 10 years of Mobilee in Hearn Street, featuring Berlin’s own Anja Schneider.

Release-wise, we’re excited about Poni Hoax’s We Are The Bankers on Abracada on Monday. Watch out for the excellent Tropicomix by Mustang.

Here are some of the tracks making a stir this week. In particular, the Alex Metric re-edit of the Beastie Boys Sabotage – which was a frequent feature of his live sets and has been made available after huge demand from fans and bloggers everywhere. Power to the people!

Fox The Fox – Precious Little Diamond (Shep Pettibone Remix)

Au Revoir Simone – Another Likely Story (Aeroplane Remix)

Carte Blanche feat. Kid Sister – Do! Do! Do! (from A-trak’s Dirty South Dance 2 Mixtape – download it free here)

The Scissor Sisters – Invisible Light (Siriusmo Vocal Remix)

Foals – This Orient (Astronomer Dub)

Jose Gonzales – Crosses (The Boogaloo Crew Bootleg)

Beastie Boys – Sabotage (Alex Metric Re-Edit)

You’d never think from their cheeky faces how busy these two have been. BeatauCue are Alexis and Mederic from Caen, who met at school when they were 15.

People (The Crookers, for one) started taking notice when they remixed Major Lazer’s Pon Di Floor, and they’ve also remixed Boys Noize’s Jeffer, Noob & Brodinski’s Peanuts Club, Drop the Lime, Pony Pony Run Run AND French Fries, among other hot names. Actually, anyone you can think of, and they’ve probably done a remix.

Now they’ve reworked the best track (in my opinion) on the excellent Tourist History album from Two Door Cinema Club Something Good Can Work. The Tourist History album is released 1 March on Kitsuné and this track will also be released on the label as an official remix some time in the near future. Watch this space.

Boys Noize – Jeffer (BeatauCue Vocal Mix)
Crookers – Put Your Hands on Me (BeatauCue Remix)
Major Lazer – Pon Di Floor (BeatauCue Remix)

Here’s their February 2010 mix, an exclusive from A-Trak’s blog.
