Return of the zombie blogger

Hello, hello, hello.

I'm back from Sonar, if not quite ready to rock; I promise to bring you my buxom and needlessly detailed diary of the trip in the coming days, just as soon as I scan in some of the many scrupulous and scandalous photos I snapped during my time there (I really should get a digital camera). Rest assured, I had a fucking marvellous time; will fill you in ASAP.

In the meantime, here's something I should've alerted you to ages ago. You may remember I did a fairly lengthy post a coupla months back in praise of the French house sound, and in particular the work of perennial nearlyman and 4x4 genius Etienne De Crecy. Well, two of our readers - Eddy Current and KSPR.SPKR - informed me then that they were working on a wee mix in tribute to the pure amylated glam of 90s/early 00s French house; that mix is now finished, and if you follow the link below, you can get your hands on it. I'm sure they'll be pleased to hear any feedback, so leave us a comment if you have any thoughts. Here's the tracklisting:

1. Jess & Crabbe - Startin' Sumtin' // Fiat Lux
2. I:Cube - Disco Cubizm (Daft Punk Remix) // Versatile
3. Motorbass - Ezio (Cassius Remix) //Different
4. Daft Punk - Around The World (I:Cube Remix) //Virgin
5. Air - Sexy Boy (Cassius Remix) // Trax
6. Daft Punk - Harder, better, faster, stronger (Jess & Crabbe Regulator Mix) // Virgin
7. Raw Man - Number Seven (Le Knight Club Mix) //Crydamoure
8. Cassius - Cassius 1999 (Full Version) // Virgin
9. Thomas Bangalter - Ventura // Roule
10. Cheek Venus - Sunshine People (DJ Gregory Remix) // Versatile
11. Daft Punk - Da Automatic Funk (Bootleg) // White

Eddy Current & KSPR.SPKR - Miraculeusement: Un Mixage Collant // CDR

OK, and here's the belting De Crecy mix of Whomadewho's 'Out the Door', which most of you've probably heard, but fuck it, one of you hasn't...Buy the Super Discount LPs, Mssr De Crecy deserves to be living comfortably for services to house music more than most. P.S. Has anyone got an mp3 of the demented 'Spinal Scratch' track from Thomas Bangalter's Irreversible soundtrack? If so YSI me dearest, please...

Whomadewho - Out The Door (Super Discount Remix) // Gomma

I also have some really fine music from Jah Schmidt to post up in a few days; JS is an up-and-coming producer whose compelling dubstep-not-dubstep tracks I've been sitting on for far too long. Remember, if you're a producer and you have stuff that we and/or the people who read this blog might like, don't hesitate to post/e-mail stuff to us at the addresses on the sidebar; the same goes for a mix you may've dashed off. WE NEED SOUND.

Meanwhile, play safe n' all and get back to the World Cup where you belong.

I thought I had 'Spinal Scratch', but instead I've got a copy of 'Stress' by Bangalter from the same soundtrack, and if yu've seen the film it's from the opening credits if my memory serves me. If you want a copy just let me know?
