On the last day of the year, I thought you would definitely be in for a party, so I will give you some random party tunes. Some new, some old, but all bangers! Make sure you get drunk tonight, and have a good time! Watch out for the fireworks though, you don't want to end up like the poor guy in the pic!
Soda 'n' Suds - We do it again (Gtronic remix)
The phantom's revenge - When Mr. Hyde killed Dr. Jekyll
Robyn - Cobrastyle (the Bloody beetroots remix)
Boys Noize & Erol Alkan - Death suite (Bobermann remix)
I don't know how old this one is, I definitely heard it at a lot of parties, so it's probably a little older. Dj Rob 3 is probably better known to you as Rob Threezy, an american electro/house producer.
Dj Rob 3 - The chase
Rob Threezy based his awesome song on the 90's classic "The Vamp" by outlander, so why not give you this one too?
Outlander - The vamp
And the last one for now: Lektrobeerz, another upcoming Belgian Dj-duo, gave us their latest track. To me, it sounds a bit like the two previous tracks I gave you. Weird!
Lektrobeerz - Frost

A little while ago, we gave you some tracks from Gtronic's "Iron man" Ep, and now Stereoheroes gave us their remix of this amazing track. They added some vocals to it, this gives the song a whole new face. Consider it a (belated) Christmas gift from them! If you want to buy the whole Ep in 320 versions, it's available on beatport.
Gtronic - Iron Man (Stereoheroes remix)
Vecho is another great Belgian electro project, their tracks are bombin'! The "Waters of Nazareth" remix starts so fucking hard and loud, I almost couldn't believe my ears! Same story for the "Rombo" remix. I thought the originals couldn't be harder, but Vecho has proven me wrong. They also remixed the militaristic fairytale called "8000", and this remix got me headbanging from the first second. Vecho's sound can be described as typical Proxy noise, I'm really loving it.
The Bloody Beetroots - Rombo ( Vecho remix)
Justice - Waters of Nazareth (Vecho remix)
Proxy - 8000 (Vecho remix)

The first one is a track from Huoratron, "Gbay". Typical Huoratron shit, scary, screeching, sawing, soul-sucking electro!
Huoratron - Gbay
This one is a fidget song, a genre that has been pushed a bit to much to the background on this blog. Typical jackin basslines, looped vocals, everything's there to get you dancin.
Tjr - Booty move
Remember what I said about P2t getting big? Check this latest remix by The Killer Rabbits for their track "jump", trashy, ravey, it has it all! That description fits perfectly for the second remix that I'm giving you, the remix by The Third.
P2t - Jump (The Killer Rabbits remix)
P2t - Jump (The third remix)
And a last one, these guys don't need an introduction anymore I think....
The Disco Villains! Their next Ep will be remixed by Gigi Barocco, so keep your eyes and ears wide open for that!
The Futureflashes - Get Down the funk (Disco Villains remix)
And the last one, also a fidget, jackin tune:
Paul Anthony - Let me Bang (Figure remix)
Friday, 25 December 2009
I was looking for some gifts to share with our dearest readers, but wasn't able to get my hands on some awesome bangers. I did found one though, a remix for Jingle Bells by our favourite Aussies, Trumpdisco!
Jingle bells - Trumpdisco
Something a little softer: Netsky remixed Mike Snow's "Black and Blue", this one's Drum & bass orientated, no trashy shit in this one!
Mike Snow - Black and Blue (Netsky remix)
Vote, vote, vote!
Edit: Gtronic is currently at the first place, keep those votes coming!
EDIT: Gtronic ended up being at place 48, with a total Of 920 votes. Our blog had the most amount of votes of all the placed voting machines (after the site itself).

Young Nutz (WoNK & diXXie) had a really crazy year already, and with this post I want you guys to know just how crazy it was. Their sound can be described as fidget, Wobbly bass (reminds me of Jack Beats sometimes) and some rave-esque elements. Here are some of their best trasks, enjoy your Christmas Eve even more with those songs!
Young Nutz - Helped Myself
Young Nutz - Insomniacz (inspired by Faithless)
Young Nutz - Jack Got Nutz (Inspired by Jack Beats)
Young Nutz - Mixed Nutz-mas (a little mixtape)
Petr Passive is another artist from Basserk records who is making that typical screeching electro, like Ado!, P2t, Bronstibock,... This doesn't gets you jumping, it makes you "Skream" for your mammy!
Petr Passive - Skreamerr

I just stumbled upon this bunch of tracks and remixes, and I was immediately blown away by one of them. MITSUBITCHI!
The Subs. I don't like their live shows, but they produce such mindblowing tracks! I fell immediately in love with their latest track, and I'm absolutely sure you will too! I can't really tell what makes this song so incredibly awesome, you'll just have to listen to it yourself.
The Subs - Mitsubitchi
Oh yeah, I found some other stuff aswell, but everything sounded just so dull after "mitsubitchi", I'm not really enthousiastic about anything anymore. But anyway, here are some tracks from the "pre-mitsubitchi" era, if you ever grow tired of it, you can check those songs too. They're ok.
Hostage - I get high
Johnny Moog - Fantastic lover (Kingdom remix)
Kid Cudi - Pursuit of happiness (Steve Aoki remix)
Just one more time: MITSUBITCHI!

A fresh Disco Villains tune, they remixed Vanilla's Ice classic "Ice Ice baby", typical Disco Villains stuff (= awesome). They might be coming to Europe around march/april, but they are still looking for some more gigs to get their flight costs completely covered. So if you want to see a fuckin' great party, give them some money so they can come over!
Vanilla Ice - Ice ice baby (Disco Villains remix)
Just found a new Trumpdisco track, so I thought it was my duty to give it to you guys!
Phoenix - 1901 (Trumpdisco vs Violate)
Soundboysrock are a french duo from Troyes, who made a cool remix for Todd Terry and Tara Mcdonald's track "play on". Since it's an electro remix, they made it more ravey, with a great build-up and some high noises in the background. Got me jumping from the first time I heard it, something that's not so easy since I've been listening to so much electro music lately.
Todd Terry feat Tara mcdonald - Play on (soundboysrock remix)
Monday, 14 December 2009
Bronstibock (Peter Rutten and Sanne Groeneveld) is an Amsterdam based dj-duo, and they are making distorted, noisy, screeching electro. Just the way I like it! With a couple of releases on the Basserk record label, they have caught our attention. The Aux Raus remix for "The brick is in the air" really got me jumping, and the other 2 songs I'm giving you are bangers aswell. Black and Decker' electro at its best!
Bronstibock - The brick is in the air (Aux Raus remix)
Bronstibock - Levi
Tanzkonsol - she left me (Bronstibock remix)
P2t! At the time of my first post about them, they had released just a couple of songs, and they weren't noticed by the crowd. Now, they'll release their remix for The Killer Rabbits on D.E.N.S records, and their tracks got featured on a couple of blogs. And their sound just keeps on getting better! This last one has some funny vocals in it, I can really see them getting big!
P2t - I kill you

Gigi Barocco is one of the many extremely good Italian producers of the moment. He has a sound which is slightly different from his countrymen like Congorock, Blatta & Inesha, Crookers,... He gives his song a funny touch, a side of his personality that can also be seen in his live appearance: In a fluo green bathrobe, a frog mask and most of the time drunk as hell. His track Puah got played by big guns everywhere around the globe, and it kickstarted his dj-career. Now he's playing at party's all over Europe, so if he's around, go and have a look! Here are his latest 2 banging tracks, an original and his remix for Will Bailey's "hustlin and scratchin".
Gigi Barocco - the Rhythm
Will Bailey - Hustlin and Scratchin (Gigi Barocco remix)
And his most recent episode in his mixing series "pass the butter":

26. Sawgood feat. A Girl And A Gun "Teenage Blitz" B&I RMX
27. TC - Where's My Money (Caspa Remix)
Not all Lee Mortimer's productions get me jumping, but this one definitely did! Lee pushed the vocals under the radar with a pumpin' bassline, and the result is brilliant!
The futureheads - Struck Dumb (Lee Mortimer remix)
Wednesday, 9 December 2009
For an unknown reason, I haven't posted something about those 2 crazy Dutchmen... Let's start with their latest remix for Oh snap!, "Plus size model". They gave it their typical "mighty" touch, resulting in a speedy fidget song that I loved since the first time I heard it. Their older remix for Oh snap! which was given the name "I'm too fat be a hipster", has graced my ears for a solid 30 times, according to the statistics on my Ipod. Enough reasons to give you that one too!
Oh snap! - Plus size model (Mightyfools remix)
Oh snap! - I'm too fat to be a hipster (Mightyfools remix)
For the second part of my post, I was thinking about giving you my favourite Mightyfools records. But for a second I didn't realise what an immense ammount of bangers they have produced already, and choosing would be very painfull... So I'm just giving some of their most unknown tracks, for a complete archive of their tunes, check wizards are better.
Breakdown - Break the system (Mightyfools rmx)
Jackinori - Ba bada (Mightyfools remix)
Liam Vizzle - That banana track (Mightyfools remix)
De grote Donnie, Vinnie en Sjakie show - Koffee was up (mightyfools too much cafeine rmx)
So these tracks are only a fragment of their immense discography, and basically EVERY track they have made got me jumping. Their tracks are played by big names like Don Rimini, Sound of Stereo, Mightyfools, ... Wait! what? Yup, Mightyfools know how to turn the tables, so if you can catch them somewhere in your hood, don't hesitate and move your lazy ass to the party!

The Disco Villains! I remember hearing their "we are your friends" remix for the first time like it was yesterday. Their typical sound would never get out of my head again, thanx to other great remixes they made for 50 cent, Ace of Base, Technotronic, N.E.R.D.,... And now they refixed a song for one of Belgiums new big dj-duo, Soda 'n' Suds. Their "Fuck House" ep has been featured some days ago on this blog, if you didn't got your hands on it, go do it right now! The Disco Villains remixed their "we do it again" track, download here:
Soda 'n' Suds - We do it again (Disco Villains remix)
Soda 'n' Suds - How we like it mixtape
Buy the ep on beatport
The Oddword (Antwerp based duo from Belgium)is saying hello to the new decade with their latest track, called "hello goodbye". The videoclip is showing some black people dancing real cool, wish I could dance like them! The original is a song by Jeanette, called porque te vas. This is no straight-forward electro, it has a lot of funk influences, but I'm still loving it! Give em some love when you catch them playing somewhere!
The Oddword - Hello Goodbye

I talked a lot about Huoratron (real name Aku Raski) recently, so I thought it was time to give him some love in a post dedicated to him.
First, this guy knows how to throw a party! He's partying like crazy when he's behind his decks, and the public sometimes looks scared when they see him performing his "claw-move", or one of his other crazy gestures.
Second, he looks like a typical doorkeeper, who can punch you K.O. in one single hit.
Third, he has a beard. That makes him even more scary...
Last: the combination of the previous characteristics makes him a great entertainer, if you're not afraid to get sweaty!
Now you know what I'm talking about! Here are some tracks, all pure bangers!
Huoratron - $$ troopers
Huoratron - prevenge
Mixhell - highly explicit (Huoratron remix)
(in my post about Mustard Pimp's Omgitm! mix, you find a download link for corporate occult, his latest track)
Something a little softer now, Rubix, a guy from the Netherlands. His disco/electro tracks have been played by big guns like Laidback Luke, Radioclit, Kissy Sell Out,... He sounds a bit like "French touch" dj's like Daft Punk and stuff.
Rubix - Baiser sur la disco (Rubix refix)
C-code - Burning up in here (Rubix remix)
Rubix - Disco pour les enfants mixtape

Sharkslayer and Harvard Bass... They just continue to amaze! I already did a few posts about them, but I thought that these songs were good enough to give them another post.
Nouveau Yourican - Boriqua (Harvard Bass remix)
Orgasmic - The sixpack anthem (Harvard Bass remix)
Mom & Dad - the Whole Sh'bang (Harvard Bass remix)
Sharkslayer - Critters
Renaissance man - Spraycan (Sharkslayer's Respect to Nassau mix)
Serial chillers (a Flemish duo) remixed a song by Canadian hip-hop artist Drake, and I really like it! This could become a real club-hit, thanx to the support Kanye West gave the original.
Drake - Forever (serial chillers drop the remix)
Friday, 4 December 2009
Nah, just joking! and to prove it, I've got this for you:
Bobermann (probably better known to you guys as Sir Bob Cornelius Rifo from the Bloody Beetroots) remixed the Bloody Beetroots song "warp 1.9". I see you thinking: he remixed a song from his own? Yes he did, but this time Tommy Tea (other half of Bloody Beetroots) has nothing to do with it. The song will be released on "Christmas Vendetta, Spares of Romborama", coming out 8th of december.
Steve Aoki & Bobermann - Warp 1977
Mustard pimp had the honour to make the next "Oh my god it's techno music!" mixtape (number 19 already). Other famous dj's who made a mix for this project are: Blatta&Inesha, Dirty Disco Youth, Sound of Stereo, Mightyfools, Malente,... Quality guaranteed!

Like I said in my previous post, Clément Mulot from Sawgood promised us an interview. With our crappy French, and his sucky English, this sure wasn't easy, but because music is a universal language, we managed to get some valuable information out of him.
So Clement, let's start with your latest track "Teenage blitz": how did you came up with the idea to make a track with A girl and a gun? Did you contacted her, or did she made the first move?
I heard her voice on myspace, and I loved it immediately! So I decided to make her a piece, and she made some vocals for it. Then she did a remix contest with these vocals, but I didn't participated on that one because Crux records would release them under contract.
What's your idea of a perfect party?
A room to relax, my friends, some beers, wodka, a metro, a taxi, 50000 watt's, a dj, a party room, and my girl. And you?
My perfect party is a dancefloor packed with partypeople, who are jumping, screaming, crowdsurfin',... And a dj who's partying like a fool. Talking about a fool, at Fight Klub in Brussels you were sharing the decks with Huoratron. What was it like?
It was amazing! I don't listen to tons of music, I just have a list with a dozen of artists which I'm really, really digging. Life would be hard without their imputs! Bands like Noisia, Spor, Huoratron, Kissy Sell Out, Dilemn, Proxy, No Money, … , just all those producers which created their own beautiful and immediately recognizable sound. So sharing the decks with huoratron was pretty awesome!
Kissy sell out played some of your tracks some months ago. How come he picked you? And are there some other big guns who played your tunes?
Ah, that's story is really cool! One day, Kissy (which really is one of my biggest idols) changed his myspace status. I commented something funny on that, and the next moment, he sent me an e-mail to say that he was really loving my music! If I gave him some 320-bpm versions, he would give me some support. Since then, he has helped me with every new song that I produce.
There are also some big dj's who have helped me, like Calvertron and Defunct!, who remixed my first Ep (called pompin'). Famous dj's who played my songs include: Bloody Beetroots, Blatta&Inesha, Mustard Pimp, Hostage,...
Impressive list! I hope that there will be loads of others who can be added to it after this ep! Do you have a favorite Belgian dj/producer?
How do you start when making a new track?
Basically, I start with making a synth that sounds like I love it (a heavy and pumpin' bass), then I make a melody with that synth, and I finish it up with a rhythm. It's often very dirty and a bit messy, so I have to remodify everything. Then I put the things in who are still missing ( leads, fx, ghost drums), and I clean it up.
Do you prefer dj'ing or producing?
That’s a difficult one. I’m actually a real composition geek, I can’t get sleep without thinking about a fat beat or a cool riff. I also love to play for an audience, but I’m not a real dj. Sometimes I’m afraid that the people won’t like it, afraid to be too much in my own world. If I have the certainty that people love what I do, I might even be willing to compose live on stage!
Beer or something stronger?
Both, my friend… I always start and end with beer. That’s also the reason why I’m coming back to Belgium soon!
What are your future plans?
Oh man, I have loads, tons of plans! A lot of feats., with Stereoheroes, Blatta&Inesha, Calvertron and an unknown Russian dj. A lot of remixes will be coming your way soon, and I also have planned a release of my third Ep on Plasmapool.
Sawgood's top 5 songs of the moment:Ajapai - What do you hear
J.rabbit - Ninja Gaiden
September - Until I die (Feed Me remix)
Foreign Beggars and Noisia - Contact (Drum n Bass Mix)
Dj Antention - Behind a door (original mix)
Thursday, 3 December 2009
Laidback Luke and Lee mortimer made this smashing club-hit "Blau", that you could hear in sets of famous dj's everywhere, but it couldn't be found in non-ripped version untill now.
I'm giving you the original and the remixes that I like the most, the one from La riots and the two remixes from Doorly.
Laidback Luke & Lee Mortimer - Blau (Original)
Laidback Luke & Lee Mortimer - Blau (La Riots remix)
Laidback Luke & Lee Mortimer - Blau (Doorly remix)
Laidback Luke & Lee Mortimer - Blau (Doorly's dubstep remix)
I've really grown tired of Crookers and their typical sound, but this Bart B more remix is really awesome! The original track is a dubstep song, this one's more dancefloor friendly with a ticking clock in the beginning, and a fat beat to keep the crowd dancing.
Crookers ft. Kelis - No security (Bart B more remix)
