Almost forgot about him

Lazy rich that's where this post will be about. The last time I heard about Lazy Rich is kind of a long time ago, don't know why though. He HAS been making new stuff , it just didn't seem to find it's way towards me... So here are some of his songs and remixes that I missed in this long period of time. So don't be like: dude I got that track like ages ago!

Let's start with the oldest one. A remix of Earpark's hexopolis. This one is a real busy one, epic sounds coming from everywhere! Some dubstep influences, some fidget influences and some really typical lazy rich-sounds. Banger!
Earpark - Hexapolis (Lazy Rich's WTF Remix) by Lazy Rich

The dubstep influences I mentioned earlyer seem to show up in all the remixes he's making these days. On this one there's even an actual dubstep part. A good example that the dubstep hype is a really big one.
DJ Dank - FuNK eL (Lazy Rich Remix) by Lazy Rich

The last one, his 10 days old remix of Return of the king, has something special. Combining funky basslines with all sorts of things, makes me wanna party hard while discodancing-girls with afro haircuts pop up in my head. Lovely!
J Scott G and Imprintz & Kloe - Return of the King (Lazy Rich Remix) by Lazy Rich

Wrap up # 8

It's been a decent time since the latest installment in this series, but due to all the christmas gifts I get thrown from everywhere, I have a bunch of tracks that really need some attention.

I'll start with a new bootleg from Horse, a guy from Australia, known throughout the galaxy for his insane mash-ups. Now he has taken one of my favorite tracks of all time, Divine Gosa from Radioclit, to the remix-table. The thing with my favorite tracks is that it's really hard to make something that may proudly stand next to the original...
But this one did, although it might be a little more heavy for my taste!

Figure was one of the guys that I loved in the starting days from the blog, but I somehow lost track of him somewhere... Searching through the web I found this massive bootleg for hip-hop collective NWA, which is so heavy I almost fell of my chair, got blown out of my room and landed in a big black hole!
Almost, otherwise I wouldn't sit here writing...

Mr. Magnetik was so kind to share a gift with us, it's a piece of acid that sticks in your brain and stays there until all body functions except your movement are completely eroded.
"Why not the movement?" I can almost SMELL you thinking that! The answer is quite obvious though - you have to dance!

Moore & Lezz will be dropping a very special treat for you, ratrabbits readers, real soon, but in the meantime I have their fresh remix for L&M Bros' "Wario Must Die". They weren't one of the winners of the remix competition though, the boys from L&M had so much trust in their remixing capacities that they asked them to make one.

Doc Trashz is also throwing out presents to everyone who is willing to catch them, and I bet that you will definitely want to catch this one! The buzz around the Tron movie has finally stopped rising, now that it's finally released - but you might want to keep surfing on that hype after you heard this thing!

Dj Antention is quickly becoming the new face of the Russian electro scene, now that the Proxy is working (or at least I hope he is) on his album. His "Ivan" track was already remixed by X-ettl, and now it's also been remixed by Vecho! Dj Antention particulary liked this remix, and apparently the guys from Tuff em up records in Australia liked it too, because they're releasing it! Support the 2 young belgian lads from Vecho by joining their fanpage!

Ok, I think this is finally it...
Post done...
Oh no, what's this? A new Catastrophe Mixtape by Mustard Pimp?!?

I don't think I have to doubt about posting it, especially because their new collaboration with Blatta & Inesha is in there... Love, love, love!

Holding my breath

Exams are finally over! Got to hold my breath though, cause I didn't receive my grades yet. But on the otherhand I can enjoy the holidays now until the fullest. Perfect time to grab some harder songs and get the volume to it's maximum.

Ever heard of Gorillas On Drums? The first time I read their name was about 30minutes ago, OMGITM posted their newest song Hold your breath. Well, from the moment I heard the song I was convinced. Gorillas On Drums is a collaboration Project between One Man Ben and Destroys ID. Never heard of those names either but I suppose that will change in the future.
Hold Your Breath (Original Mix) by Gorillas On Drums

F.O.O.L made a new EP and it's a fucking masterpiece! It's almost a month old now ,and I still can't get these trashy sounds out of my head. It includes remixes of Tom Deluxx, The boomzers, RETZ, Haezer and Redvil. And the remixes are the thing that make this EP so damn good. Normally, on an EP with a couple remixes, there are some I like and some I don't like. But on this one, ow damn! I must congratulate every single artist on the EP, they all did a fucking great job!

Trashing Teenagers?!

It's been a long time since I posted something because of my exams. But I'm back! To start I have some new power from the 2 crazy guys from Flanders called Trashing Teenagers. They have made a new EP called Wrath of God. The EP is amazingly good! Remixes by: Trumpdisco, The Oddword, F.O.O.L, Owl Vision and Wonkap!!! OMG!!

Goodbye socks...

Merry Christmas eve everybody, hope you all enjoy it! I have a track to scare your grandma below, make sure you only play this AFTER you got your present...
Otherwise the poor lady will be so shocked that you'll have to wait another year for your pair of socks!

Redneck Rampage is a new project from Spicy Phonic, and I had to post it because it has been such a long time since I really liked a hard trash song... I hope you like it too!

Tuesday, 21 December 2010


The friendly dudes from The Oddword got some early support here, but it's been a really long time since I featured them in a post. I hope this post makes up for that!

After their smashing live-sets and cool original tracks, the boys also showed themselves to be prime quality remixers this year. The pope of dope and Jump from Dj Antention were the first remixes that got us all jumping and screaming, but recently they've made some new ones... And they might be even better than the ones I mentioned before!!! "Heavy" from Soda & Suds was a track that I liked a lot, but The Oddword remix really gave it a fresh approach. They just did what they always do: heavy basses, a ravey feeling, and last but not least: an overall approach that makes you want to jump around, scream, punch your mother because she doesn't stop complaining that you party too much.
Exactly the thing an electro track should do if you ask me!

Soda & Suds - Heavy (The Oddword Remix) by The OddWord

I basically got the same stuff to tell about the second remix I'll be giving you, "Fuck You" from Distrakt. This made me yell FUCK YOU! to everyone who wanted to hear it today, I guess I'll need some time to make new friends again...
Not that the track isn't worth it, pretty fair deal if you ask me!

Reflux, pee, what more?

If a guy like Ado asks you to give him some promotion for his new Ep, you have to be really dumb to ignore his request. The track that I liked the most from his give-aways is Reflux, which is a somewhat untypical track from him. The majority of his tunes can be described as trashy, hard-ass, ear bleeding stuff, while this one is a little bit more bleepy and bouncy. I bet this even lets your dead grandma dance in her grave... Sweet.

Support this man when his Jerk Ep gets released in january on Wax:on records!

Mr. Pee is a dj from Antwerp, Belgium, who has just made us a small hour of pure electro pleasure. Tracks from Clouds, Trumpdisco, Haezer, Dj antention, Aerotronic,... This guy surely knows how to charm me! He even threw a new track from The Oddword in, which is pure sex! Love, love, love!

The D.O.N. R.I.M.I.N.I.

I have a lot of respect for Don Rimini since the first time one of his awesome mixtapes found it's way into my iTunes collection, and that's already 2 years ago... His pumping tracks like "Rave on", "Kung Fu", "Ohow", "G.O.O.D.",... have only made my love for him greater. He released a smashing mix for the Burn Paris Burn mixtape series a few days ago, which makes me feel like it's festival time again. The Don was actually the best set I heard this summer, at the feest in het park festival in august. Enjoy this mix, it's filled with banging tunes that put whole festivals on fire!

The video for his "whatever" track is quite nice, so why wouldn't I post that too? The Don himself even has a small cameo in it, those who watch it attentively will recognise him, being his old cool self.

This should be your sh!!!

Hi folks, I'm back with yet another promo post for Comic Strips! It seems like almost everything I'm posting is something that's been made by him... I guess I'm just a sucker for a pretty bass! This fellow will be releasing his second Ep on Rot10 musik, and I can assure you that this is a no-brainer when thinking if it will be worth your money. The 3 tracks on it should be widely supported by anyone who's willing to give new talents a shot, or basically by everyone who likes his electro pumping and energetic.

My favourite track is Ghost Troubles, It comes so close to perfect that I was a bit afraid of what the other 2 might sound like when compared to it... Luckily for me, the other 2 are prime time bangers as well, who may stand proudly next to Ghost Troubles. Ill-matic is a blend between electro and metal, perfect for those moshers on the first rows! That's my sh!!, the title track of the Ep, is good head-banging material, but I'm afraid I ran out of superlatives to describe it. Awesome Ep, prelisten all of the tracks below!

busy , busy , busy ...

With my exams coming closer and closer I can't really find time for anything apart from studying at the moment. And yet I make time for some blogging, I hope that I won't regret this... So yeah , because I can't make time for searching all through the internet for some good new stuff , I'll give you something that I already know for a while.

I got for you a guy called Tim Nelson aka Betatraxx. Well because I can't find a bio of him anywhere , that's all I know about him. But that isn't really important, his music on the other hand is. You could describe his productions as dirty electro with a deep/dark atmosphere, so check out some of his songs...

Here is my personal favorite, called Drug Abuse. It's not the easiest song to mix into another, but I'm just really linking the atmosphere in this song. Although it has some real dirty electro sounds it's still kinda deep.
And for all the producers out there, on his soundcloud you can find all the different lines of this song seperated so you can make a remix of it.
BetatraXx - Drug Abuse ft. Alyssa Young (Original Mix) by BetatraXx

This one is a remix of 4th of July by Kelis. When I first heard the original song I was like: hmm liking that piano sound. But after a while I was already bored. So what I like about this remix is that he kept that piano-piece and made the rest of the song just so much more interesting. Enjoy.
Kelis - 4th of July (BetaTraxx Remix) by BetatraXx

While i was writing the above, a new status of X-ettl popped up on facebook. He posted a teaser for his remix on Jouissance Accablante by Dead CT Bounce. If you had never heard about X-ettl before I'll quickly introduce him to you. X-ettl (or Jens De Ketelaere) is one of the three guys of aerotronic. Aerotronic is known for their trashy electro sound and that sound you can also find in the productions of X-ettl, only a little more cleaner.

This teaser gives you a little taste of something that in my opinion sounds new and fresh. The only thing I don't really like is the climax. But it doesn't really bother me that much so ...

The 80's feeling

This is post number 202 on this page, woohoow! I forgot to add it in my post about Kraken heart and Comic Strips, but I guess you guys didn't noticed it as well.
What excites me even more is my brand new traktor s4 (for those who don't know what it is: watch this), within a few months (or longer, we wait until we are fully assured of our qualities) we will be available for bookings...

Today I have 2 sweet vids for you, both awesome in their very own way... They have one thing in common: they revive that typical 80's feeling!

The first is a promo video for the new Mr. Magnetik Ep, called "Mario is under acid". It will be released on the 24th of December on G point muzik, but I will let Mr. Magnetik do the talking for the rest of the post.

It all started off as a pleasantry, and though here the banter has gone to an offset inspiration taking us through an acidulous pilgrimage. This is how Mr Magnetik got promoted to the rank of demiurge of a track incarnating a play resurgence straight from the 80's!

For the friendly joke to be complete, he sends the track to his best buddy: The G from the G Point Muzik label.

« Mario Is Under Acid » starts as a stage of « Super Mario Bros » and ends up just like it, blowing up into fireworks. We are already all aware that the journey will be epic and that Bowser or any Koopa Troopa will find themselves unarmed facing the percussive rhythm boxes introducing one horny Super Mario. Ultimately, the final score will be grazing the hands of Jean Nipon and Shameboy who are as well joining the game, and offer dirty remixes of the track, coming right up from some parallel dimensions.

Mr Magnetik is here keeping off any pompous torments, turns on the console and delivers you a crazy game, which will make you whirl like pixilated bricks. Insert a coin and don't let the game end, don't repulse your childish pleasures!

The second one is the official clip for Derezzed (for the upcoming Tron movie), featuring Daft Punk, lightbikes, Knights,... Why aren't you watching yet?

Monday, 6 December 2010


F2U are two disturbed guys from Portugal who love to make innocent people jump and get mad with very loud and distorded bassline’s. I'm in love with all their tracks! Their just CRAZY! They have made massive remixes like a remix of Barbra Streisand, Rapid Fire Remix, Blast Remix, .... MAKE SURE YOU CHECK THEM ALL!

Another thing that I need to say is that my tests are beginning tomorrow so you will not see many posts from me the next couple of weeks.

The Kraken is loose again!

It's been a long time since I promoted something from the kraken, aka kraken heart here. The reason for this is quite obvious: the guy just took a short break from this project, to have more time to keep his other one (called Dropout Marsh, this is more dreamy and hypnotic than you're used too if you have heard the kraken already) alive. He's back in business now, his new mixtape is more bangin' than ever. It's actually a new mixtape project, no more Kraken tapes, but Beast tapes. Not that you'll notice, the sound stays the same. Thank God.

Doesn't that first track from the mixtape sounds familiar? Yes it does bitches! It's my homie Comic Strips from Pittsburgh, with his track "Drip Drop". I told you that he was going to rise fast, and for those pessimists who still don't believe what I'm saying, I have some more teasers for upcoming remixes from him. Absolutely lovely, as always!

This one is real short, but it gives you a good idea how cool the full version will be.

warming myself up

 Temperatures are getting low here in Belgium. While i'm freezing my ass off because there's something wrong with the heater , I found a way to warm myself up. Trying to find some tracks where i can dance myself warm with. Well mission accomplished! Here's what i found...

Meet Zedd , a German producer who knows what he's doing. He produces in a lot of different genres but it looks like these days electro of the harder kind is becoming more important to him. Below , a remix he did on Skrillex 's Scary monsters and nice sprites. It is allready a couple weeks old but it keeps banging so hard and i just can't have enough. It has a lot of the same sounds as in the original mix but this electro version just has that little bit more. Enjoy!

Skrillex - Scary Monsters And Nice Sprites (Zedd Remix) by Zedd

If you haven't heard of the new song by The Black Eyed Peas called The time , it probably wont take that long before they start trowing it to your head from all directions. But there is a good side about this , overhyped commercial songs bring remixes with them. Same with The time , so here's Zedd's remix. Kinda similar to the remix he did on Skrillex's song , but i see it more as a Awesomess part 2. Again, enjoy!

The Black Eyed Peas - The Time (Zedd Remix) by Zedd

Now a song that didn't really make me want to party hard , but gave me that lovely summer feeling. This wobbly peace of music made me all happy in these dark winterdays. It's one to lay back with , forget the low temperatures , and picture yourself the beautiful summerdays.

first impression

Good evening ratrabbits readers, wondering where that "first impression" thing is all about? Well I should be introducing myself because i'm new on the ratrabbits writers crew.But where I should be , i'm not gonna... not really into putting a lot of time in that shit. After all it's a blog about music not about our personalities.So let's skip all the boring stuff and get right to the music!

Instead of introducing myself , i'll introduce you to Filthy Rehab. A Dj duo from the UK with some serious Dj and producing skills. As I scrolled down there soundcloud page and listened every single track without wanting to stop any of them, I was kinda realising where there name came from. Getting addicted to there music isn't the hardest thing to do. Getting there dirty basslines and energetic beats out of your system is a lot harder. So below some of there kick-ass tunes. But beware I warned you for the consequences, now it's your choice if you want to risk it...

The Damn Bell Doors - By The Power Of Ra (Filthy Rehab Remix) sample by filthy_rehab

This one really sounds like it's a Jack Beats song, but I don't know if I see that as a bad thing ...
Filthy Rehab - Wa sup (original) sample by filthy_rehab

EXTRA : A mix they recorded , well just look at the name to see what you got to expect.

Here goes the hurry again

The hype about Daft Punk's comeback is getting extremely infectious, even Breakdown has fallen to the madness... Should we get worried (maybe I have to get worried, after being such a naive fool to believe that Daft Punk would play at I love Techno)?
NO! Of course not! Everything that results in good electro songs should be embraced!

Smart peeps have already figured out that this track will be one from Daft Punk and Breakdown, and the true masterminds might have linked it to the first track of the Tron Soundtrack, called Derezzed. If you are stupid and were absolutely clueless about what to expect, don't worry. The reward stays the same.
A banging electro candy, not to be missed by all the kids who ever want to be smart!

Valy Mo has received some attention from me a little while back, but this dude has more tricks in his sleeve than there are grains of sand in the desert. I can't find the words needed to describe the sound of this track (the fact that I'm in a hurry limits my creativity), the only thing I can say is that he did a great job. Ok go is a rock band from Chicago, who got famous because of their awesome videoclips. The one for this track is actually one of the best clips ever!

Lack of time = lack of creative descriptions for this one. It's awesome, just believe me.
Or, even better, don't believe me! Be critical and check the link below to get your mind blown! KrustyProders - BadGuy (ValyMo rmx) by ValyMo

This may be the first post ever where I promote something that a friend of mine made... I just don't want you to think that I post stuff just because friends made it, but this one is actually a very nice tune! Disko Kids, hailing from Leuven in Belgium (this track was made at 100 meters from my door) are proudly presenting their very first production.

It's a remix for Dem Slackers - Swagger, and they made it harder, more bleepy, more chaotic, more everything!

Wednesday, 24 November 2010


I'm pretty sure you all have heard the new track from Steve Aoki & Armand Van Helden, called "Brrrat!". I'm not such a big fan of the original (although it's pretty cool when played live), but this SonicC remix will blow your mind for sure! The harder approach he gives the track made me bang my head, jump around my room, and yell the vocals to everybody who wanted to hear it (or not hear it). In short, a truly excellent remix!

Normally I'm not a big fan of house music (probably because it doesn't jack my body as much as electro does), but The Phantom's Revenge latest track "Charlie" from their new Ep had a few elements that made it an absolute killer. Duck Sauce, watch your backs!
Is it the vocals? Yes!
Is it the feel good vibe (and vocals)? Yes!
Is it the perfect mixing? Yes!
Is it the fun touch they gave it? Yes!
God damn it charlie!

Go buy the whole Ep on Beatport!

1. Charlie
2. Last man Standing
3. Machine Gun Girl
4. Mr. Fahrenheit
5. Bastards can do '90

Bangers + Laziness = Belated posts full of bangers!

It's been a long time again, my dearest readers. Reason? Just a bit of laziness, mixed with the typical winter blues feeling + school stuff that got at an alarming rate.

Ill Saint M, previously known as Illstm (I guess you can figure out why he changed his name a bit) made another hard remix for us! Kids who are craving for sweaty dance floors full of people giving everything they got (like me), have another track to party on. Go ask your local dj's to bang this out loud, very loud... If you ask me, this has a lot more potential than the original to fire up your party! Become a fan on his new facebook page, this guy definitely needs more support!

Oh yeah, before I forget: rumors about his new Ep are getting wilder and wilder... Getting released on Citizen records (Vitalic, Teenage Bad Girl,...) ? No way!?

Second is a nice bootleg from Hoi!, a duo from the UK that already got loads of support during their short existence. Names like Dem Slackers, The Bloody Beetroots, Foamo, Kissy Sell out,... should ring a bell somewhere, no? I'm giving you one of their newest tracks, which has a free download option enabled as well. Woblles, nasty basslines and all that spiced up with fidget nonsense - determined to be bangin' if you ask me!

Peeps who are following Comic Strips on facebook (like everyone should be) or something else, have heard about this tune before. Shake em' up is the name of the new born kid, and it will definitely give you a hard time. I'll leave it up to your party genes to make sense of that last sentence - shouldn't be too hard, just click that orange "play" button below.

Ivan Is Shipping up to Boston!

Blaster has made a new remix called I'm Shipping up to Boston and i had to share it with you like most of the Blaster tracks! It's RAW

Up next is a remix of the Killer track Ivan from Dj Antention. It is remixed by X-ettl(part of Aerotronic) and if you know X-ettl from it's last Jetgum EP you know that this remix is SICK!

Last but not least we have a nice remix made by Clockwork. The sound is pretty different from other tracks and is probably produced in space. Sounds a bit Modek'ish i think.

I love techno 2010: the report, the live-sets

As you might have guessed from my previous post, I have been to I love techno. It was my third time already, and maybe that played a role in my appreciation of the event. I didn't thought it to be worth the 50 euro's, because so many acts disappointed my high expectations. The public wasn't as eclectic as the previous 2 years, I wondered why so many people pay so much for a ticket, when they're standing still all the time.
But let's cut the negativity, it wasn't all bad! Some dj's played a massive set, and there were some things that I didn't see that seemed to be cool as well.
I uploaded all the sets on mediafire, so that you don't have to "wait 60 seconds
All the sets are radio rips, so they're only small bits of the candy. If you have found longer sets, drop a comment!

Starting chronologically, the first dj that got me partying was Jack Beats. Those nasty wobbles jacked everybody's body, and I experienced the first moshpit of the event. We didn't stayed the whole set, when they started playing dubstep (stick to your style!) we left.

Playing at the yellow room at that moment were Les Petits Pilous, throwing a bunch of hard and bleepy electro songs into the crowd. The place were I was standing sucked, but if you listen to the set you will definitely have a good time.

After Les Petits Pilous, it was time for Boys Noize! I always have very high expectations for his sets, but actually he falls short of them for most of the time. Only once I experienced a smashing set from him, at Rock Werchter 2009. The set at ILT was way too techno for my tastes, but if you want to see for yourself, I linked a part of the live set for your pleasure.

2 setbacks, 1 partially good set... Time for something that I loved last year! A-trak played one of the best sets then, this year he was a bit less entertaining, but still good stuff compared to the previous acts. He dropped Barbra Streisand of course, but now I'm officially tired of it. No live set I'm afraid...
I do have a preview of the new Duck Sauce track though, to ease the pain. It doesn't stuns me like Barbra Streisand did when I first listened to it, but maybe I have to give it time to grow on me.

Next up in the schedule: making sure we are in the orange room before it's too crowded because everyone wants to see the beetroots! Only, we were an hour to early, Crookers had just started their set when we entered. With Crookers, I have a bit of a hate/love relationship. I really love their early work, but I'm a total hater of their new turn, which they showed at their album Tons of Friends.
So with every set, I have to see if it's one filled with oldies and hard new things, or one with the more hip-hop sounding new stuff. This time, I was lucky, it seemed like I was back in 2008, the period were the boys were at their absolute best. Second best thing of the whole night!

After the Crookers came, as I said before, the Bloody Beetroots with their Deathcrew 77. This was the second time I saw it, and although it sounded exactly the same as the previous time, I found it absolutely boring this time (while the other set was mental). Maybe it sounded a bit too familiar compared to their set @ werchter. I don't know for sure if this whole set was prerecorded, but there are a lot of signs pointing in that direction. The boys don't even have to touch their guitar to get sound out of it - how "live" is that huh?
Apart from that, I didn't really liked the sound either, it was really too much the same. Build up, and then a lot of noise after the drop - that's basically it. I think I'll only go check them again if they're playing a dj-set.

When the deathcrew was gathering all their stuff, a familiar looking asian american got behind the booth. It was Dim Mak label boss Steve Aoki, who would play the best set of the whole evening. An almost perfect set, although I'm still not in love with his heavy metal intermezzo's. They are a bit his trademark, but I would still be happy if he just played plain old hard electro all the time. Nevertheless, an absolutely smashing set!

After Steve Aoki, we took a short break, and came back to the orange room to check out Sound of Stereo. They were a bit boring too, or at least not interesting enough to keep me partying. We didn't had a choice but too leave - all the other rooms were basically closed, only a few techno dj's were still playing.
I have a few more Live-sets from acts that I didn't see, but that might interest you. The Goose one sounds really awesome!
