EVIL NINE…

I have occasionally found some good music from the likes of EVIL NINE. I was just listening to there remix of Eagles of Death Metal an alternative/hard rock band formed in Palm Desert, California. the track was “Wannabe in L.A. (Evil Nine’s MCLA remix). Check it out on Last FM. It rolled along so good, i was inspired to wana play some breaks again soon. well i sort of do, but not like this mix that have found out there which is worth a good listen. If you like the breaks fused with rock and electronic influences, then you will dig this, so yeah, get amongst it. It was done for the DISCOBELLE blog.

mr oizo – porriturre ( soulwax edit ) 
Evil nine – the night

Evil nine – icicles ( evil nine’s graveyard smash remix )
zombie nation – the fact
shadow dancer – landlines

They aren’t evil and there are only two of them, but other than not living up to their randomly chosen yet aesthetically pleasing name Tom Beaufoy and Pat Pardy in no way disappoint. That’s if you are into a distinctly individual sound that defies categorization and has delivered both cerebral stimulation and dancefloor satisfaction with every release so far.

Loving the artwork for their Albums, here is a taste.

Welcome to the RAVE

I remember times where people lost them selves to music. I remember dodgy warehouses. I remember dancing any where you wanted to. (even on cars)

Some tracks brought shivers to peoples spines when they were heard for the first time in a massive f#@k off sound system that you could hear four suburbs away. I mean massive. Tracks like “total confusion – confusion mix” by “Homeboy hippie & funki dredd”. tracks like that made you loose your head and start to dance.

Five years after hearing this I heard it again at an Old skool party, paying homage to the classics of rave. finally finding out the name off the dj at that time. Two years after that roaming through second hand record stores, I found it.
