WSGM "Kids On Vacation" The Remixes

To celebrate the official release of their first single "Kids On Vacation", When Saints Go Machine have sent through the original + 6 remixes! (Don't you just love it when bands get great remixes to go along with their releases, but 6 remixes! that's just craziness haha)

The single has just been released in Scandinavia and this week it was 'Pick Of The Week' on the Danish equivalent to BBC1. They have a long list of awesome gigs this summer - Distortion Festival, SPOT Festival, Roskilde Festival, as well as ParisParis club in, well, Paris. Check WSGM's calendar for more. Aside from the gigs they'll be recording tracks for the album this summer, as well as collaborating with some very interesting German, American and Danish acts. Oh yeah, and releasing an EP during the Roskilde Festival (3-6 July). Hopefully we'll some more cracking remixes from these mean machines!
Wongo's remix is the one for me! The other remixes come from Clark Able, Lasse Lyngbo and Zombie Disco Squad which you have probably already picked up from your blogging travels..
Also I have been a bit premature in saying the blog was 100 posts old as I found out that I didn't actually publish 2 of the posts so next post is the BIG 100! How did no one notice! sheesh

Starr Gifts!

A gift arrived in my mail box today from friend of the blog Riva Starr in the form of a link to his recently released remix of "Coming Up" by Colin Hobbs on White Noise Recordings. With plays from Switch, Jesse Rose and all the usual suspects. Link is only up for the next 10 days so grab it now, this is one you don't want to miss!

Colin Hobbs - Coming Up (Riva Starr Remix) (zShare)

If you dig then don't be an arse and get the full release here.

While were on Riva Starr here's another remix he's done for U&A Recordings of London of Elite Force's "Melodik Hypnotik". I'll let the label do the talking on this one:

The eighth release on U&A Recordings sees the release of the first in a series of remixes of older Elite Force tracks, under the project-name Re:Vision. Originally released on the now defunct Kingsize label, 'Melodik Hypnotik' was one of the labels biggest records of it’s time and now it returns on U & A Recordings in newly formed versions from 2 of the hottest remixers around, with the added bonus of the re-mastered original mix, and Elite Force's very own re-rub from '05, which has never been available until now. The first mix comes from Plasmapool's Miles Dyson and melds electro house attitude with classic breaks fonk stylings to create a huge big room monster. His recent remixes successes with releases such as 30Hz’s ‘Daddio’ Jude Sebastien's 'Rubberman' have shown that Miles Dyson is playing at the very top of his game, and his mix of Melodik Hypnotik is no doubt set to be his biggest yet. The second mix is from Dirtybird artist Riva Starr who turns in a awesome, low-slung, deep techy take on things and comes up with a stripped and hypnotic version that jacks up the bass and lets fly with a groove that is rolling and percussive. Quality house music that clearly shows why Claude Von Stroke has taken this talented producer on board.
