Give it to me Tejada!

Cheers to everyone who came down to System last night to check out Matt Tolfrey. He played an absolute blinder, so thanks are in order for the Nottingham electromeister. Personal highlights for me included Paul Woolford's 'Erotic Discourse', Carl Craig's mix of Theo Parrish (available for download here), and the closing double whammy of Ame's 'Rej' into Hug's 'Fluteorgie' on K2. We definitely hope to have him down again in the near future, so look out next time to see what you missed! Those interested should check out his label's website ( for more info and samples of his first Leftroom release (featuring tracks from Marc Ashken and Pheek amongst others). The online shop should be running soon, but at the moment you can still get it from Phonica here. Also, click over to the section on the site to download his first online release by GummiHz. Here's the Tolfrey spiel:

"London based GummiHz a.k.a Alexander Tsotsos of Greek origin, started a long-term relationship with electronic music as a DJ in 1994. For the last four years he has been producing tracks to incorporate his own ideas to offer a more unique sound to his DJ sets.
The opening track entitled 'GummiHz' is a deep, drum driven track which has the flow that you've come to expect from the early hours of the morning. Fluttering structure and deep bass grabs your attention...Next up is 'Denz Music' which dives straight into that out of time rhythm that we've come to expect from Holden or Fake. I've had the pleasure of hearing this at Watergate in Berlin - not for the faint hearted! 'Illelectronic' has a similar feel to the opening track on the EP, but definitely with a more sinister and trippier edge. A persistent drum hook and spooky sample snaps makes this a must for the afterparty...Last up we have 'Folder 3' which is a quirky, stripped down track which will appeal to a wider audience for its simple but infectious groove."

It's free, so you've got no reason not to check it out! Last night also saw me and Puffin hit the decks, but technical problems meant that I couldn't really play the set I wanted to...Unfortunately, the cd that had all my new stuff on it wouldn't work 'cos the cd decks weren't loving the brand of CD-Rs that I've been using recently. Sony!? What are you playing at? So no new stuff this time, but what's it matter? "A Tape tune's a great tune"! Anyway, here's what I played:

Henrik Schwarz - Leave My Head Alone Brain (Mix 1)
Todd Terje - Eurodans
Hot Chip - Just Like We (Breakdown) (DFA Remix)
Quiet Village - Too High To Move
Superpitcher - Tell Me About It
Martinez - Time Illusive
Steve Barnes - Cosmic Sandwich (Cosmic Sandwich Remix)
Sian - Sei (Steve Bug Remix)

Salif Keita - Yamore (Luciano Remix)
Thomas Dolby - One Of Our Submarines (Villalobos Remix)
Riton vs. Howdi - Closer
Nathan Fake - Dinamo (Dominik Eulberg Remix)
Christopher Just - I'm A Disco Dancer (John Tejada Remix)
Buckley - Block Party
Digitalism - Zdarlight

For your downloading pleasure today, we have one of the tracks I played last night, John Tejada's mix of Christopher Just. Tejada (pictured left) here has his sights fixed firmly on the dancefloor, creating what is basically 'Sweat On The Walls' version 2 with a uber-camp, re-recorded vocal from Ozen. Her sultry delivery fits perfectly with John's unique brand of bouncy minimal, and what results is arguably his most fun production to date.
