TAPErs' Chart 08/04


Ok, here's what you guys out there seem to be listening to at the moment, based on the comments that you've been leaving:

  1. REKID – MY BLEEP (ORIGINAL & ROMAN FLUGEL MIXES) // REKID
  2. ALEXANDER ROBOTNICK – DARK SIDE OF THE SPOON (ORIGINAL) // CRÈME ORGANIZATION
  3. OXIA – DOMINO // KOMPAKT EXTRA
  4. GORILLAZ – KIDS WITH GUNS (TOMBOY REMIX) // WHITE
  5. PALERMO DISKO CLUB – PUMP // KITSUNE
  6. TEENAGE BAD GIRL – HANDS OF A STRANGER // ARCHIBEL
  7. INNOCENT SORCERERS – ONE DOLLAR RACE // RAW FUSION
  8. WHITEY – WRAP IT UP // MARQUI CHA CHA
  9. HOT CHIP – AND I WAS A BOY FROM SCHOOL (EROL ALKAN’S EXTENDED REWORK) // WHITE
  10. SOLID GROOVE – SICK NA GOOD // WHITE
Rather like a proud war general sending his troops into certain death, I'm not going to give up on this TAPErs' Chart idea (come on, I've given it a silly official name and everything) - so, to make it more accurate and interesting, keep leaving comments (on any post) telling me the tunes (past or present) that your ears are currently thanking you for. Good.

While we're here, and while we're on the subject of war, I may as well offer up the Optimo mix of Franz Ferdinand (pictured above) that's been floating around. For all the punk-funk raucousness/italo stylishness that's going on, I don't think it's entirely successful. But then, is any remix of Franz going to sound good in the wake of Erol's 'Do You Want To'? Probably not, but judge for yourself:

Franz Ferdinand - Outsiders (JD Twitch & The Truffle Club's Optimo Re-Freak) // White

1. Luciano's 'Sci.Fi.Hi.Fi' mix on Soma: best minimal-mix of the year till now, without competition.

2. Two 12inches where I don't have to tell you the brilliance of:

* Metope - Second Skin (Tekel Edit)

* Pier Bucci - L'Nuit (Dominik Eulber Remix)

3. Rediscovery of the week:

The Hacker feat. Mount Sims - Traces (Oxia Remix) (Different)

Don't own that much of Oxia-tunes, but started digging in my collection after your hurrays about his release on Speicher and this release on Different from last year is still a banger. The french-Vitalic touch trademark sound with a little bit of melancholy. Great track!

The track that haunts me since last week:
eyerer & chopstick - electric (williams remix)

The kind of track that makes me feel anxious, like I'm never gonna find something like that again. You know, it's a 2 week-feeling, till same thing happens with another song.

Any cure in mind?

Horabora.
