MALAKAI…

Hot from the inbox was a link from Malakai, with his newest track.

Carpet burn, I loved this. Fun electro synths, with a hiden old school rave element. It even reminded me a little bit of old Plump dj’s stuff where the rolling broken drum patterns happen. maybe you can practice some basic shuffles here in house, Carpet burn.

BREAKBOT. . . 

Thibaut Berland aka Breakbot released his first single ‘Summer Party’/’Happy Rabbit’ on May 21st 2007 on moshi moshi records. He crafts party tunes. Big ones. Parisian Thibaut has mastered the art of melting together all the best elements of dance, electro and funk with skill and precision. And a laptop. Born in 1981, Thibaut was immersed in the sights and sounds of the subsequent decade, and remained appropriately pulled between his love of animation graphics/comics, and music. Possessing a degree in computer graphics, he created his first animation short film co-directed with two friends (“overtime”). He then directed several tv animation commercials and music videos. He helped So-Me on the design of the justice debut album cover.

Thibaut now cooks up choice cut electronic music, experimenting with beats, layers, keyboards, vocals, and Daft Punk-esque get-yo-funk-on basslines. Whilst Breakbot’s remix of Justice’s ‘Let There Be Light’ appears on their Japanese ‘Waters of Nazareth’ 12″, his double A side with Moshi Moshi is his debut solo release. Since then he made remixes for Pacific!, DatA, Late of the Pier, Metronomy, Pnau, Fatlip, Digitalism, Van She and many more.

He toured with Pnau and Van She in Australia from coast to coast in april 2008 for 17 gigs. He played in many parties over Europe (Paris, Lyon, Berlin, London, Brighton, Birmingham, Glasgow, Manchester, Amsterdam, Helsinki, Berlin, Milan..). Breakbot is now working on his upcoming EP

TREVOR LOVEYS. . . 

Trevor’s love of music started at a young age when he discovered electro and hip hop back in the early eighties, he got heavily into the scene collecting all the music he could from various record shops and radio shows broadcasting back then he went on to paint graffiti until his mid 20’s when a close friend bought an akai sampler and roland juno 106 synthesizer, this was to be the turning point and beginning of a journey into production after teaching himself programming and production over a period of 3 years he was ready to put out his first release on the house of 909 imprint, he released around 5 12 inch singles and e.p’s over about a 2 year period then went on to record an Album titled the children we were, that received critical acclaim from music press and fans of his deep house sound,

Then in 2000 he met up with Dave Taylor and started working on various projects together, the most successful of wich was to become the now renound “SWITCH” they released various singles and did some high profile remixes including chemical brothers, basement jaxx and buster rhymes.

He then went on to form the Speaker junk project with Herve another long term friend and production partner, they are continuing to develop this project together with singles and remixes,and after the success of his last solo e.p on Dubsided, Organ Grinder, Trevor is concentrating a lot of his efforts on his solo projects and Djaying.

Welcome to the RAVE

15 03 2009

oldschoolrave

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.
