FACTs of life...


Picture: David Tompkinson


Check out the website of my dear employers FACT for a couple of stories that might interest you...

First up, Kompakt head honcho and all-round legend Michael Mayer talks to us about quitting smoking and making the (in my opinion well dodgy) Supermayer Save The World album with his old mucker Superpitcher. Also check out the Q&A with Michael we did on this very blog late last year.

Secondly, Ralph Cumbers, aka Bass Clef (pictured), who's been winning many a fan with his uniquely rambunctious, leftfield take on dubstep, is the subject of a wee spotlight feature. Nazi fairgrounds, Guinness and theremins all feature...

And while I'm here, a few recommendations...

PURE P - THE LOVE SONG / 5 ON IT // G.A.M.M.
The latest G.A.M.M. re-edit 12" comes courtesy of Pure P, who supplies fresh, speaker-shaking beats to hip-hop to Luniz's '5 on It' and Bush Babees' 'The Love Song'. It's the instrumentals that really make this record worth picking up. Super-essential.

STILL GOING - STILL GOING THEME / ON & ON // DFA
After months, MONTHS of inexplicable delay, this piano-led future-classic is finally available on 12". Don't even consider not buying it.

THEY CAME FROM THE STARS I SAW THEM - SIGNALS (EMPEROR MACHINE MIXES) // THISISNOTANEXIT
Our good friends ThisIsNotAnExit drop the latest 12" from passionately shambolic psyche-pop outfit They Came From The Stars. Andy Meecham supplies a vocal and dub version under his Emperor Machine moniker, and wham, bam, they're narco-disco dancefloor killer. As if it could be any other way.

DJ BLAQSTARR - SHAKE IT TO THE GROUND (CLAUDE VON STROKE REMIX) // MAD DECENT
Ignore the Switch, Diplo and original versions and head straight for Von Strokes ultra-reduced mix, which is basically nothing but a rough-house beat and dirty vocal, a la Percolator. Fucking HUGE.

MINDLESS BOOGIE - MORNING DEW (PRINS THOMAS MIX) // MINDLESS BOOGIE
Nazareth's desert cock-rock classic gets re-rubbed by Prins; anyone who heard the original on Todd Terje's 'Ironkuru' remix will know what an unusual but surefire winner this is. Fans of Map of Aprica should seek it out post haste.
