Happy Christmas one and all!

No posts for a while as I've been so dam busy. But hey ho here's some news.

Firstly, the first release on Thisisnotanexit Records is now available from your local independent record store on 12" and cd. Go and buy it! And if they haven't got a copy tell us as record shops are useless at keeping track of us independent record labels.

Its also available via the digital world and can be found on itunes (along with older They Came From The Stars I Saw Them releases). If you don't fancy lining Mr. Apples pockets then you can suport the digital independents Rough Trade Digital and Juno Download. Get to it you won't be disappointed! Don't believe me? Well Jame Murphy likes it, Optimo like it, Tim Sweeney likes it, Prins Thomas likes it, Jon Galkin likes it, Steve Lamacq likes it, John Kennedy likes it.......what else do you need to know.

Watch the official site for a new mix i'm putting together - downtempo weird stuff and weird disco - and also keep your ears peeled in New York as I'm doing a guest mix for My Cousin Roys Apocalypse Wow show on East Village Radio. Should be sometime in the new year so watch out for that.

I'm also in the process of starting a regular monthly Sunday night event with Need No Water Records to showcase new music we like and bands on our labels. More news when it all gets sorted (it'll be in East London is all I can tell you).

The next few releases on the label are pencilled for March / April time - once I have the remixes back I'l have a better idea of timings but there will probably be 3x releases before the summer...keep 'em peeled.

Thats all for the moment - watch out for the new Chemical Brothers track Electronic Battle Weapon #8 as its blowing up dancefloors at the moment, the new Whatever , We Want edits 12", My Cousin Roys Bobby's Back on Wurst Edits is worth shelling out for, Carl Criags remix of The Brazilian Girls should be out soon, Villalobos remix of Depeche Mode finally sees the light of day this week on vinyl, James Holdens LUMP makes my insides wobble, LSB Origial Highway Delight is disco of the highest order, NAUM (aka Johnny Wilkes from Optimo) has remixed Snow Patrol (???????????) and the new LPs by LCD Soundsystem and Joakim are stonking. I've also heard that Shit Robot has done a remix of a track by Kaos, judging by the stuff he did this year I cannot wait to hear it. Oh and Grindermans No Pussy Blues is mind blowing - Nick Cave back on the highest form.

Enough rambling, merry christmas all xxx

Well. The launch party on Friday was beyond belief. Thanks to everyone who came and made it - and I quote Bardens owner here - "the biggest, friendliest party we've ever had" - so give yourselves a pat on the back. I did a nice warm up job (I would say that) but They Came From The Stars, I Saw Them tore the place apart - ITS TIME was incredible! And then JD Twitch came on and played a 2 hour set of epic proportions - I can remember jumping up and down to Soft Cell, Talking Heads, Banbarra, Ram Jam, Jonathan Richman, LB, and then an epic finale of Richie Havens - Back to my roots into the Optimo Remix of ITS TIME! And boy did the place go crazy!

Blackstrobe have made their transition from the Output fallout to Playlouder Recordings with the release of Shining Bright Star today. Its a track thats been kicking about for a while and does everything a Blackstrobe track normally does. Its a bit like this that was on the so rare it hurts 5x12 Puma boxset that came out as part of the Miami Festival a couple of years ago.

I got my copy at an Output Records night and have treasured ever since as I believe there was only 100 made - but it had exclusive stuff from Output, Diplo, DFA etc on it. Anyway here's Blackstrobe doing their big ballsy electro techno house 'ting. Enjoy.

Blackstrobe - Pins and needles

Myself and They Came From The Stars, I Saw Them mastered Twitch's remix of ITS TIME yesterday entitled ITS TIME An Optimo Espacio Remix. Its out in a few weeks as the first release on the label and is rather marvellous. A proper good twenty five to six tune.

It might be up on They Came From The Stars, I Saw Them's Myspace page if you can't wait....

I put together this little re-edit of The Rakes Binary Love (The Loving Hands aka Tim Goldsworthy of the DFA remix) at the weekend as I'm not a huge fan of The Rakes singers vocals. I've therefore got rid of them....

I'm DJing at The Lock Tavern in London this Sunday afternoon - sometime around 4ish for 70-80 minutes - come on down if you're around, I'll be playing a no doubt mixed bag of stuff. I'm currently finishing Thisisnotanexit Vol.5 so I may well play a few bits and pieces off that.

Friday, September 22, 2006

No posts for a few weeks as I've been on holiday - plus label action is keeping me out (or in) trouble depending on how you look at it. Today we're going to go and master They Came From The Stars, I Saw Them first single for Thisisnotanexit Records with Kevin Metcalfe. It currently sounds amazing so once we've mastered it, it should sound Top 10. Its released November 13th on limited edition vinyl, cd and cassette but the band will be streaming it on their myspace real soon....and all being well should be all over the radio too...

We're having a launch party to celebrate the single release on Friday November 17th @ Barden's Boudoir (38-44 Stoke Newington Road, London) with a great line up of talent:

They Came From The Stars, I Saw Them
JD Twitch (Optimo)
Simon A. Carr (Thisisnotanexit)

Doors 2000 - 0200
Entry £5

Everyone welcome it should be a great night.

I saw The Fall on Friday at The Galtymore in Cricklewood and they ended their set with this beauty from their latest album, a 7 minute groove that sounds like The Fall covering LCD Soundsystem covering The Fall:

The Fall - Blindness

Over and out.

Tuesday, September 05, 2006

No posts for a while as I've been busy working on the first release for the label - I'll post the demo up in the next few days so that you can start to get excited about the properly mastered release in November - alongside that JD Twitch Optimo remix that is about to be done. They came from the stars, I saw them supported Magnetophone on Sunday night and played an amazing set - and Sculpture who supported fried my brain also....if you get the chance check him out.

Here's a cover of Pink Floyd's Vegetable Man which was on the b-side to The Jesus & Mary Chains first ever 7" - its rather rare this, and Jim Reid has also been playing this out at his solo gigs recently.

And continuing the cover versions theme here's The Cramps covering Count Fives - Psychotic Reaction from their 'Smell the female' live LP. The originals great, and this is great too. Gotta love The Cramps.

I also now have a soundcard and audio setup that works! So expect a few rare vinyl bits and pieces over the coming weeks, plus some exclusives from They came from the stars, I saw them...

Monday, August 21, 2006

I'm still having problems with my decks - mixer - Ableton - laptop - soundcard setup so until I get it sorted here are a couple of things to tide you over.

Over at our friend George Demure's myspace page is this downloadable track but figured I would put it up here too as myspace can be so temperamental. His new track Main Attraction can be streamed there too and should be making its appearance on little black 7" plastic real soon. Go and buy it as A) its great and B) he's one of the nicest men in music, seriously. Plus its not neu-rave!

And this is most definitely not neu-rave! Its a track by OOIOO called UMA (apparently it means 'horse' in Japanese). Its from OOIOO's new cd TAIGA which you can purchase via import - apparently its going to be released as part of an ep in October backed with a remix by EY3 from The Boredoms! I cannot wait. I also got the EY3 remix #2 of Crue-l Grand Orchestra last week which is worth a listen - even at £12 for an import 12".

Just bought the new Stereolab 7" and the best of Blurt Vol.2 which I'm looking forward to - but the Gregor Samsa LP is still on constant rotation along with Chris Carters - Mondo Beat LP, the How To Cure Dyslexia 7" and some old stuff by The the demos from The Sorcerer and Hatchback that they sent me - glorious electro nu-disco.

Friday, August 11, 2006

An exciting week this week. The first signing to Thisisnotanexit Records has been confirmed - a band called THEY CAME FROM THE STARS, I SAW THEM.

I've been listening to their demo cd on repeat today and believe me they are absolutely revolutionary. Live they are an incredible proposition too. Like nothing else you've ever seen or heard before.

The first release is slated for November with a remix from JD Twitch from Optimo on the b-side if all goes to plan.

And I've got to say they have a hint of early Pink Floyd in their sound - and by that I mean the pioneer that was Syd. Here's a great track from the man himself that always breaks my heart.

And speaking of breaking hearts here's a track by Gregor Samsa - a band that really has been breaking my heart since I discovered them, coming on like Mogwai, Godspeed you black emperor and Galaxie 500 all at once. Truly beautiful stuff. Go and hunt out their LP, seriously you won't regret it.

Following on from last weeks Wedont exclusive I also have this little beauty he's thrown together - Dizzee Rascal vs. Xenon 2. Bizarre as it sounds it works like a dream....makes me want to buy a Commodore 64 off ebay.

Finally here's a track from New Zealand band Shocking Pinks who have been signed up by the DFA. They've also been busy signing up Prinzhorn Dance School from Brighton. Plus go and re-check out Thisisnotanexit Vol.2 if you haven't already as it features the groovy disco track ALTZ - MAXMOTION that has just been licensed to DFA for a re-release. Ahead of the curve, me.

I finally get my decks tomorrow so next week there'll be Blackstrobes Pins & Needles posted up, along with the new Cobblestone Jazz track, an old Jonathan Richman track that everyone should own and the Optimo re-edit of Wolfmother. There should also be a new mix up on the official site.

Thursday, August 03, 2006

A little exclusive for you today. Noone has got this yet. I had to steal this from my man wedont's computer! Anyway he's put together a remix of Spank Rock - Far Left which is an absolute stormer. Can I hear some Hardcore in there? Is that Hooligan '69? I think it might be... Anyway download it and play to your friends and if you're feeling fruity be wedonts friend over at myspace. He's also got a record label which will soon make its debut with a lovely little 2 tracker 7" from the lovely Catriona Irving that you can pre-order via the neednowater site link below...

And this has just gone up at The Chromatics myspace site - a demo of a track called BABY that I absolutely adore.

Here's hoping the rumours they're gonna play the UK soon are true.

In other news there will be a new mix up on the official site shortly - and in a shocking twist its not been done by me but by mate Paul. More info once he tidies up the edges. A rather more poppy mix than usual though to reflect either A) the sunshine B) his talents or C) my laziness. You decide.

Thisisnotanexit Vol. 5 will return in September though so don't panic!

Also, I'm on the verge of making the first two signings to Thisisnotanexit Records. Hopefully at least one of them will be confirmed next week and YOU will be the first to find out. Promise.

Thursday, July 27, 2006

Bought Cobblestone Jazz - Dump Truck on Wagon Repair last night - go and buy this record! IT. IS. AMAZING.

There's a glorious remix of Blackdown by Burial thats worth hunting out this week too.

Plus there are copies of Morgan Geists remix of Junior Boys - The Equalizer floating around on shiny black plastic which are definitely worth six of your english pounds.

Get to it people.

Wednesday, July 26, 2006

Here's a couple of little treats for you. Both are alternative versions of the originals...

Maxence Cyin plays Aphex Twins Windowlicker on the ol' joanna:

And Who Made Who strip it back and play Rose all acoustically...

Just moved into a new flat so once my records and turntables are unpacked there'll be some glorious rare tracks going up the meantime check the above and The Vol.4 mix. Oh and hunt out Joakims new track DRUMTRAX from his new ep - its proper acid house business, not this neu-rave klaxons / digitalism pish thats being pushed at the moment.

Friday, July 14, 2006

Something for the weekend....

It's the weekend, and here's something to help you through it - the Major Swellings (aka Prins Thomas) remix of Stephen Malkmus 'Kindling for the master' as I know some of you REALLY want to hear this. Its pretty dam good, I just hope Domino / Stephen / Prins doesn't hunt me down for posting this......

Thisisnotanexit Vol. 4 should be up on the official site tomorrow morning all being well *glances at website gremlins* and I hope you enjoy it, all feedback always appreciated as it means people out there are actually reading / listening / enjoying.....adios amigos.

Wednesday, July 12, 2006

Woe is me....

No posts for a while as my girlfriend broke up with me. Woe is me.

I have though put together the next Thisisnotanexit installment and Volume 4 should be up on the official site in the next few days for you to download and cast your ears upon. In the meantime here's the tracklist - basically for you to decide if you fancy trekking all the way to another site to download it. Its not as long as the last mix I did, does contain the new DFA remix of Hot Chip, plus is laced with an undercurrent of melancholia which I quite like....

Thisisnotanexit Vol. 4

1. Telstar Ponies - Bells for Albert Ayler / Voices for the new music
2. Burial - Night Bus
3. Aphex Twin - On
4. Juan Maclean - La Chine
5. Hot Chip - Colours (DFA remix)
6. Goat Dance - Sizzle
7. Kerrier District - Robots (Disco Nasty remix)
8. Capracara - Two headed monster
9. Akabu - Phuture Bound (Ame remix)
10. The Rapture - Get myself into it
11. Carol & Snowy Red - Breakdown
12. Ginny - Can't be serious
13. Burial - Forgive
14. Langley Schools Project - God only knows
15. Amina - Fjarikstan
16. Mogwai - Friend of the night (Acid casuals remix)

As I said it should be available on the official site real soon.....

In other news and continuing my recent Knife obsession my mate Pete supplied with me this little beauty - the Ratatat remix of the new Knife single 'We share our mothers health'....check it! Very different to the Radioslave remix I put up a few weeks ago.

I've also set myself up for a fall by somehow agreeing to Dj at a friends party, and alongside my mates Wedont and Karlos, play 60 songs in 60 minutes. I'm currently busy on Ableton editing the hell out of stuff, but I will definitely be playing this (non-edited) beauty that Twitch mentioned to me and comes in at a blink and you'll miss it 46 seconds, lets rawk!

Minor Threat - Straight Edge

Friday, June 23, 2006


I've got the new remixes of The Knife's next single "We share our mothers health" on a nice promo 12"! The Trentmoller remix is ok and does its job but its the Radioslave remix you want to get your hands on...a huge throbbing druggy 3am track...hardly any of the vocals (if any) are used and its just a total big soundsystem record ideal for Fabric in the early hours. Check it!

I've been a bit lazy and not managed to get the Stephen Malkmus tracks converted into mp3s yet, but I can tell you that the Emperor Machine is the best of the bunch. That and the super rare Blackstrobe track I mentioned last week will be up real soon. In the meantime here's The Langley Schools Music Project singing the Beach Boys.

Friday, June 16, 2006

Wowee Zowee!

I've got a nice promo 12" doublepack of remixes of Stephen Malkmus (ex-Pavement) track 'Kindling For Master' in the post to me which I'm hugely excited about. Its probably the most exciting set of remixes I've seen on one package for ages - and features Major Swellings (aka Prins Thomas), Hot Chip, Emperor Machine and Polmo Polpo. No idea when they're coming out or if they're going to get an official release but I'll post the best of the lot up once they arrive. Here in the meantime is the original version - Pavement goes disco......

I've also got a hugely rare Blackstrobe track called Pins and Needles which I might post up next week if I remember.....

Panico & San Serac

I went to see San Serac play live at the ICA last night as I've been trying to book him for a Thisisnotanexit event. He didn't disappoint and proves that Output are becoming the Rough Trade of the noughties with the variety of their recent signings. Trevor Jackson was also there and nodded along approvingly. Bless. Go check out San Serac at his myspace:

Headlining last night was Tigersushi signings Panico who I dragged all of my friends to see at Benicassim last year. Unfortunately the sound wasn't great then and they just didn't kick it like I'd hoped. Last night they were quite something though - tight, funky and very rocking. The three new songs they played were amazing - and the track they encored with sounded like Panico meets Can as it drifted into a freeform psychadelic wig out. God knows what it was called, but hot dam I need a copy.

Friday, June 09, 2006

Its getting hot in here...

Its Friday and its dam, dam hot. It's also just moments until that small football tournament that I can't remember the name of begins.

Here though are a couple of mp3 treats for your listening pleasure inbetween the football this weekend. Enjoy! They'll be up for a few days - like all good things they won't be around for long.

The first is a track by Kate Wax called 'Beetles & Spiders' that is coming out on a nice Output 10" soon. There's also a remix of it coming soon on a Mental Groove 12" and features on one of the new Fabric CD's. I like this alot. If you like this you should head over to Kate's official site or her myspace site and buy some of her stuff.

The second track is by Pizzicato Five from the mid-nineties and I was reminded of its charm last weekend whilst listening to Stuart Maconies Freakzone. A marvellous quirky kitsch like track that sounds like the sunshine.

Next week there'll be some more treats...

Thisisnotanexit - The blog...

Thisisnotanexit is a reaction to identikit DJs and bands playing the same old stuff again and again and again...not just another italo repress....or another electrohouse by numbers remix....seeking to inspire and innovate with everything we do....

The launch party has been and gone and now we move onwards towards establishing a regular monthly event to showcase the best in cutting edge future psychadelic electronic disco as well as those tracks that give you goosebumps that have been overlooked or underused in the past...

This is going to be a platform for showcasing records and music we believe you should own. In true record loving fashion everything will be available for short periods of time and at low bitrates to make sure that you go out and hunt this music out in its official form...

Later this week I'll post some mp3 goodies for you to lay your ears on...
