rapping with paul white - remix ep
i honestly would never have thought someone could squeeze melody out of gizmo’s (the mogwai / cuddly bear from gremlins) cutesy singing without making my skin crawl, but paul white nails it firmly to the wall here with his remix of ‘rotten apples’. considering how dark and evil the guitar feedback sample was on the original this is a hellova flip, making this free remix ep worth...
motem - 118sthlm ep
i’ve been meaning to listen to this since it dropped mid-last week, and today a trip to sainsburies (a massive supermarket for the uninitiated) was the ideal time. music in the supermarket is a must, especially when it’s so darn ugly and busy. anyhow, ‘118sthlm ep’ follows on nicely from motem’s ‘forthcoming mixtape’ which i made such a fuss about a...
matthewdavid - turntable lab mix
bloody love this guy, his recent album on brainfeeder is easily one of my faves this year. crunchy, beautiful, hip hop, electronica, fuzz, oh i dunno - my vocabulary for describing this music is pretty duff but what i do know is it’s really really dope. just press play on this mix and then go cop the album. ok. ps. come to the uk matthewdavid. we will break our backs to give you a show. xx ...

claude speeed - new age dream
i’m embarrassed to say this, but that track katy perry did eariler this year, the one with the snoop cameo, erm ‘calafornian girls’. yeh, i liked that track. serious driving music i can tell you. this may seem a bit off topic but these claude speeed tracks are both remixes of katy perry’s ‘teenage dream’, not that there’s any popsicals or daisy dukes...
sandro perri is a badman
let’s get something straight from the off, as the title of this post suggests, sandro perri is a badman and his new album on constellation records affirms that. ”but dave, it’s a ‘folk” album’ i hear you say. ”what the fuck is it doing on the donky blog?” i shall explain. if, like me, you’ve been following this guy for almost a decade then a ...

The Pathway To Tiraquon 6
With a new album just around around the corner, it seems appropriate to post something from one of my favourite housey synth noodlers. Space Dimension Controller’s latest effort, the excellently titled Pathway To Tiraquon 6, comes out later this week on vinyl and via digital outlets. Listen to a preview below or pre-order a copy here or here: I have not yet had the chance to catch...
Mother North - Dødpop
When Dødpop dropped the second volume of their compilation in late 2010 a new artist name appeared in the tracklist that was unfamiliar to even us seasoned Skweee nerds, the track in question was the icy electro of ‘Scanners’ by Mother North . When they then dropped ‘Butter Blues’ on MYOR’s Tropical Heat series our interest level piqued again leading us to want to discover more about these...
keyboard kid - the mind is so complex when you're...
i’ve gushed about this man before. and much like before i’m telling you it’s a no brainer. you need this tape. just like you need all the other keyboard kid beat tapes floating around on the internet. if you know his stuff it’s more in like with the video games and blunts tape. warm synths, perfect claps and vocal samples to make you all wibbly. <a...

bad vibes live
pull up a chair; this is the broadcast i mentioned a while back. four hours of greatness with d33j > matthewdavid > teebs > shlohmo (doing bad vibes live), you just can’t argue with that line up.
samoyed - spit ep
i fell in love with this ep from the very first time i heard it; lo-fi crackles, guitar loops, lushed-out vocals and grainy electronics make me very happy. it’s out in a week or so on rekordah’s astro:dynamics label, but if you head over to xlr8r or dummy mag you can cop a dope lukid remix or malamute respectively.

808s & Dark Grapes II
I’ve been listening to Main Attrakionz a fair bit of late. Fact Magazine and Pitchfork devotees may have come across them already but for those who haven’t, Main Attrakionz are Oakland based duo Squadda B & MondreM.A.N. For their latest release, entitled 808s & Black Grapes II, they are joined by a host of unfamiliar Bay Area producers and man who goes by the name of Clams...
dro carey - fact mix
gave this one a second spin this afternoon, and was just as blown away as i was when i first checked it a week or so back. it’s all here, techno, house, vocodered a cappellas, raekwon, old bleepy house, r&b, angry rap, juke, ustream rips, you get the idea. annoyingly fact don’t let you embed their soundcloud players so you’ll have to rock on over to their site to stream it...
