The standout track of my new Madchester Monday night was Paul Oakenfold‘s remix of “W.F.L. (Wrote For Luck)” by the Happy Mondays (re-titled “W.F.L. (Think About The Future Mix)”).
The progressive house remix of Yeah Yeah Yeahs breakout hit, “Maps” by Tommie Sunshine, CID, and Modern Machines is no longer only in the hands of the world’s most overpaid entertainers.
“Voodoo Lady” is the funk track on Ween’s Chocolate & Cheese album. The song bounces along nicely (ahem).
Halfway through my opening DJ set for Echo & the Bunnymen, I worked in “Get the Message” by Electronic, the 1991 collaboration between Bernard Sumner and Johnny Marr.
After a long absence, Death From Above 1979 released a brand new single titled “Trainwreck 1979.” Their follow-up LP is due in September.
J. Spaceman is well known for his signature droning sounds that soundtrack the comedown, and this Cut Copy remix does not disappoint.
Most recent Jagwar Ma single, “Uncertainty”, received the remix treatment from the ever-popular Australian dance band Cut Copy. It’s been one of my “must-plays” since it’s arrival.
While many fans of the band cite “Silver Machine” and “Motorhead” as Hawkwind favorites, mine is definitely the heavy “Orgone Accumulator.”
Somehow the French pop band La Femme flew under my radar since releasing the full length album, Psycho Tropical Berlin in May of 2013 in their native France.
