Five Things For Friday (extended)

Five Things For Friday (Extended)

For reasons beyon
d our control (Goggle completely playing up and displaying a message that stated our PC was incompatiable) there was no last weeks five things for friday, so this week to make up for it we are doubling up and doing 10 things :

1. The Presets - My people - Modular
Presets return to Modular with a properly banging 12'', that fuses electrohouse with Depeche Mode. Remixes come courtesy of D.I.M., Kris Menace and a rather twisted one from Mouse On Mars who deconstruct the track My People

2. Maps / M83 - split 7"
Choice split 7" on Sonic Cathedral from Maps and M83. Maps remix M83 and M83 remix Maps. Proper mellow shoegazing electronica.

3. The Black Ghosts - Mixtape - Southern Fried CD
Twenty three track mixtape (CD) on Southern Fried from The Black Ghosts. Well put together and featuring some well selected songs, including the massive Boy-8-Bit : The suspense is killing me (which should be released on the Mad Decent label very soon), plus tracks from Siriusmo, Switch, The whip, Fake Blood and Bonde Do Role amongst others

4. Diskjokke - Flott Flyt - Full Pupp
Brilliant EP from Diskjokke. Flott Flyt was one of the stand out tracks from the full length Staying In CD and now its had a release all on its own and backed with 2 extra tracks (including one non CD cut) on Prins Thomas Full Pupp Label

5. Si Begg - Jetlag & Tinnitus Reworks Part 4 - Noodles 12"
Fourth in the Jetlag & Tinnitus remixes series from Si Begg. Six mixes, this time drafting in Osymyso and ex Spiral Tribe member Simon Carter aka Crystal Distortion

6. Addict x Mitch x Star Wars T-Shirts
Custom made 180g 100% cotton premium jersey tee with 12 colour screen print illustration by Mitch of 'Boba Fett' from the original Star Wars Trilogy. Packaged in a special 4 colour Addict X Mitch X Star Wars Icons Series Box. Available online at FUSShop

7. Blacksand - Barn
Blacksand is Nick Franglen (one half of Lemon Jelly) and Charlie Casey. 'Barn' is their debut release and is issued as a limited edition of 1000 stunningly packaged, hand numbered albums, its a Rough Trade exclusive with a Willy Wonka styled idea with one of the cds having a golden ticket in it, entitling the holder to a personal performance by Blacksand in their front room. Barn is an hour of dark improvised electronica knocking shoulders with ambient. Well worth a punt!

8. Various Artists : Obsession - Bully Records CD
Excellent compilation of psychedelic rock from all over the world courtesy of Bully Records. The stuff here is from all over the world, incredibly hard to find and lovingly compiled with details of all the artists. The bands span continents, from India, South America and Turkey, bringing in local styles alongside music from Europe and America. The album was put together by Mike Davis of Academy Records in NYC with DJ Signify as executive producer.

9. Crystal Castles - Crystal Castles CD
First full length release from Crystal Castles and worthy of a place in anyone's collection. A mixture of the bands early hard to find tracks and a few new cuts.

10. Dez Einswell x Dissizit T shirt + CD
Dope distribution have a nice Dissizit X Dez Einswell collaboration T shirt which also includes a limited edition Dissizit volume 2 mixtape by DJ Phoreyz on site now
