Fidget Makes Me Happy!

With me and my love of all things fidget, I really don't know how this man slipped through my fingers as I added him on myspace some unknown time ago, but luckily I revisited his page last night and got in touch with him. Nic Sarno, DJ/Producer and co founder of ESP Records was kind enough to send me over a track from his new EP "The Sample Truth" which is out before the end of September on his ESP Records, downloadable from iTunes, Juno Download and other digital stores.

Also to come from Nic Sarno is his remix of Clark Able's 'Lemon Lead' which is coming out on ESP in October in digital format and limited vinyl edition, which also includes remixes from HiJack and Crookers. A new EP on London Based 'On The Brink Records' which will be dropping soon and a remix of 'You Should Be Someone Else' by When Saint Go Machine, also coming soon.

Be sure to check out Nic's MySpace with plenty more fidgety business going on...

3 Is A Crowd

While I was on a 'relaxing' holiday in Ibiza Albi from 3 Is A Crowd sent me over some of their tracks for me to share with my blog world, I was impressed. 3 Is A Crowd is Albi (Dj Scotti), Ivo (Dj Giga) and Francesco (Dj Froz), hailing from Italy their sound isn't to far off early Crookers stuff.

Albi: I wanted to introduce my terrible voice friend mino to the world of vocals, a joke, but then i turned it into this nasty ghetto tech groove...a crunk mix will come too...

Albi: We provided a fidget version of the almighty nirvana's "come as you are".

Albi: A dj friendly edit that turned the original brilliant track into a longer house ride with some mid 90's flavour in it with those Prodigy samples.

Albi: We remixed the funk mundial sinden track in a grimey style with heavy basslines and added in this new version a squeaky synth too...

Also check out 3 Is A Crowd's MySpace from more crunk bombs! including 'Bullshit' and 'Nchlinez'
