SINGLE OF THE WEEK
Smith N Hack - Falling Stars (Smith N Hack)
This actually came out last week but this is a new killer cut from Smith N Hack (their remix of Herbert was MASSIVE in 2006). The flip Space Warrior is pretty good but flip it for Falling Stars a near 10 minute techno italo disco throb with crazy underwater vocals. Definitely worth picking up - the sort of thing I-F will be all over - plus JD Twitch has been playing it at Optimo so you know it's gonna be good if he's given his stamp of approval.
I also got hold of a copy of the new Diynamic 12" yesterday which isn't out for a few weeks. Its by Stimming (One of Solomun & Stimming who released one of the tracks of 2007 so far FEUERVOGEL) and on his own Stimming doesn't disappoint. The EP is called FUNKWORM but flip it over for GETTING OUT which is the one to get into. Deep and minimal but with a real groove and beautiful violin and string stabs this is another great Diynamic release.
I also got excited yesterday about the LCD Soundsystem release planned for September. US only and purely digital as far as I'm aware but check out the tracklisting:
Sound Of Silver (Carl Craig Remix)
Get Innoucous (Soulwax Remix)
Us vs. Them (Sorcerer Remix)
Time To Get Away (Gucci Soundsystem Remix)
Us vs. Them (LCD Soundsystem LIVE on KCRW)
WOW!! Out September 18th apparently.
Plus on November 12th the 45:33 Nike collaboration will get an official release with 3x b-sides. The hope is that there'll be an unmixed version as Shame On You and Outer Space from it would be sure fire club HITS!
And then November 20th the James Murphy & Pat Mahoney FABRIC Mix will hit the stores - I wonder what will be on it....
