Wanking pun ahoy!

I’m guessing that all you clued up nu-disco heads have already played Padded Cell’s ‘Signal Failure’ to death by now, but less of you will have realised that the main bulk of the song has actually been ripped straight from Rinder & Lewis’ ‘Willie And The Hand Jive’. I’ve been going through a bit of a Rinder & Lewis phase at the moment after being awakened by the divine Seven Deadly Sins LP that was repressed a month or so ago. Apart from having one of the best record sleeves I’ve ever seen (see above) that will cause beard envy to any self respecting male at a hundred paces, it's a seminal (I really hate to use the word, but it really does apply in this case) italo record that won favours in both the Detroit and Chicago scenes due to its proto-techno nature in places. Puffin Jack’s currently hoarding my LP, so I can’t post any tracks at the moment, but here’s a new Todd Terje mix of ‘Willie..’, the original of which you can find on R & L's ‘Warriors’ LP that harks from back in 1980.

Speaking of fantastic rip-offs, Anja Schneider collaborator Sebo K pretty much took their ‘Rancho Relaxo’ and gave it a bit of bounce for February offering, ‘Horizons’. Then again, is it really a rip off when you did the original? I'll settle for lazy, but I'm not complaining when the results are this satisfying. We'll definitely be seeing a lot more from Schneider's alarmingly consistent Mobilee label in the next few years, and I for one can't wait to see how their sound is going to develop.

If you haven’t picked up the latest Slices DVD yet, then I’d advise you do so as it’s probably the best one they’ve done so far. A long stretch from the ‘Making Of A DVD’ feature that we subjected poor Mr Waites earlier this month, it’s got great features on Joakim, Uffie, Luke Solomon, Ed Banger and Crosstown Rebels alongside great videos from Noze, Pier Bucci, and Motor. One piece to avoid, however, is the DJ Hell feature where he talks from start to finish about his love for Bayern Munich in the most boring way imaginable. After 5 minutes I seriously considered putting the ‘Making Of A DVD’ video on again for a bit of respite! Seriously though, the Crosstown documentary is worth watching for its soundtrack alone, with Pier Bucci’s ‘Towers’ and Mathew Jonson’s mix of Hiem featuring heavily. Another track that’s on there is the forthcoming Caro & Garcia track that’ll have you're ears floating away to heaven with its delicate plink plonk/chordal synth combo. I haven’t heard the remixes yet, but with Jennifer Cardini and Mathew Jonson tidying up the package, I’d hedge my bets and say that at least one of them will better the already sublime original. Essential stuff.

Mlle Caro & Frank Garcia – Far Away // Crosstown Rebels

And don't you worry, Mr Styles! It's got that annoying 'for promotional use only' voice over the top so I'm sure all our lovely readers will put their hands in their pockets to nourish Rebels' bank balanceto make up for the tragically poor sales of Pier Bucci's fantastic 'Familia' LP. I feel sorry for Crosstown that 'Familia' didn't sell too well, but perhaps one of the reasons why it didn't was the lack of a full vinyl release, and also due to the fact that the only format available was pretty unappetising...You've got the CD in promo-style card case which I'm sure turned a few people off, and then you've got the supplementary one sided 12" of 'L'Nuit' that was bound to totally mess with the profit margins and sorta piss in the DJs' faces when they were expecting a nice double LP. When you're already wasting one slab of wax, couldn't you just hike the price by a few quid and whack another vinyl in a gatefold sleeve to host the lovely artwork [Soft: It doesn't quite work like that, Carnage...]? Anyway, rant over. I still love the Rebels, but they need to get their arses in gear and press that LP quick sharp!

Phew! I derailed myself a bit there, but before I started to lambaste one of my favourite labels, I was banging on about just how on the money Mathew Jonson is with pretty much everything he touches at the moment. The new Cobblestone Jazz release is their best so far, and I urge you to seek it out, even if you weren't really a fan of the previous ones. I'm not going to post 'Dump Truck' as Wagon Repair have got a bit pissy with us before, but seek it out on p2p to check it out... before buying the vinyl of course! Anyway, here's Jonson's lost remix of Moby's 'Slipping Away' from a few months back. Young Mathew lost out to Tiga and Axwell in getting on the 12”, which was a bit of a silly choice if you ask me. Sure, their mixes may sell more records (and both be steaming piles of aural crap), but is that what remixing is all about - just some conceited way of making as many people as possible buy the 12”? In the greedy world of EMI, that’ll be a yes, but it’s us as listeners that lose out. So here we are, yet again, posting up some fantastic mix that didn’t make the 12. Can you majors please listen up and put the best mixes on the wax? After all, the vinyl is for the bloody DJs! Anyway, if you've heard Matty J before then you'll know the score: bassy, atmospheric techno-funk that’ll do some serious damage on more discerning dancefloors. You'll wish for a dub, but it ain't gonna happen so just make do!

I've finally got the internet back on my home computer, so expect a higher frequency of postings from me over the next few weeks along with lots of juicy nuggets to get your teeth into - that's if I'm not wasting my life strugging to set up my new Myspace account. In other news, Mr Soft's brain has finally recovered from the pummelling that it received at Sonar and he'll be back from his extended hiatus tomorrow with a round up of a few select new releases.

Thanks for the MP3's Rich. Just to let you know, the Rinder & Lewis link doesn't seem to be working.

Really enjoyed your Mutant Disco mix by the way.

Sorry about the links Chris. I put them up late last night so forgive me for my lax posting. Really glad you enjoy the mixes. Are you from the UK? And yeah, the tracks are only available for 7 days or 100 downloads as it'd be unfair on the artists to offer them for any longer. Keep checking back, and I hope we can keep you up to speed with all the latest bits and bobs that may take your fancy!

Bloody hell! All the links were definitely working but they all reached their download limit within a day! I'm gonna reload them once more but that'll be it I'm afraid.

Does anyone know of a file hosting service that is any good that will give unlimited downloads for a finite period of time (ideally 7-14 days)?

Everything should be fixed now. I've used the beta yousendit site, so I think that it's unlimited downloads for 7 days... I think.

And by the way Softie, if you're going to tidy up my posts, then don't make me look like a gramatically incorrect fool by putting words into sentences that don't fit. A fool's ok, just not one with bad grammar! You've got an English masters for fuck's sake!

Bloody hell! Again?! I already reuploaded it yesterday... It must be a popular choice. Do any of you punters have any better ideas about hosting the files because if this keeps happening then we're going to get pissed off at both ends. I've got better things to do with my life than reupload files three times!

Here's a megaupload that won't run out, and I'll delete the link in a few days. That Terje mix isn't released and I doubt it ever will be, so I don't feel so bad for upping this track in this way.

So any thoughts? Unlimited downloads, ease of use, and only for a finite period? Any hosting sites that fit that specification?
I may just start to megaupload everything and then take the links down...

It's been 7 days, so I'll be deleting this link in a few hours. Grab it while you can!
