I am trying to make your chart

Mr Soft's Current Top 10

1. DELIA & GAVIN - REVELEE (CARL CRAIG REMIX) // DFA Absolutely massive this is, and I can't wait till it hits the racks in a couple of weeks.
2. LAZY FAT PEOPLE - BIG CITY/DARK WATER // BORDER COMMUNITY Fairly straightforward, nicely padded hypno-house in the Border Community grand style.
3. MAX MOHR - OLD SONG // PLAYHOUSE Rather splendid B-side from Mohr's 'Trickmixer' EP released way back in 2004, also included on the last Famous When Dead comp, and recently brought to my rapt attention by eagle-eyed R. Carnage
4. HOT CHIP - OVER & OVER (SOLID GROOVE REMIX) // DFA/EMI Ok, so it's just another bumpin', blokey house track from Solid Groove with a few token snippets of Hot Chip on top. But it's killer.
5. BUTANE - TIGERBITCH (JEREMY P. CAULFIELD REMIX) // DUMB UNIT Sticky, up it's own k-hole minimal from one of my favourite producers, that I'll almost definitely have forgotten in a week or two. I love it in spite of myself.
6. MYSTERY JETS - THE BOY WHO RAN AWAY (RITON RE-DUB) // 679 Hooligan punk-funk for the better class of indie disco.
I know it's all but dead and buried by now, but I've only just realized how sensational this is.
8. ROY AYERS - TARZAN (AME REMIX) // UBIQUITY The Ame boys steer Ayers into minimal, emotive, reconstructed Carl Craig waters, with subdued keys and tribal toms aplenty. It's their way.
9. BOOKA SHADE - NIGHT FALLS EP // GET PHYSICAL I was very harsh about the A-side here, mainly 'cos the B-sides are so good. I was wrong. They're all good.
10. SALIF KEITA - YAMORE (LUCIANO REMIX) // CADENZA Been caning this for a nice long while, and still far from bored - celestial goings-on from Mr Lucien.

More blabbing and tracks asap.

you're right, that revelee track is amazing. Most people that have heard it probably know Sweneeys bit by heart by now, that's how addictive it is. (really nice site by the way!)

Good to see that Riton mix of MJ in there. Well worth picking up the 7" this week for. 99p very well spent, and you get to propel the Jets up the chart!

indeed. the justice mix of 'you can't fool me dennis' has a fair claim to being the greatest song ever

haha, yes Richard, I must admit Tape has become a water hole for me. My university has blocked all peer2peer programs so all the new music I get comes from blogs (and the few recs I can afford). I was thinking about starting my own music blog but quickly realised it would only be your demented twin with a splach of ohmygosh. Keep up the good work.

Nice top 10.
The Jeremy Caulfield Remix is my favourite tune to end these snowy days lately, followed by the b2-side of that remix of The Knife (stunning Shinedoe minimal-rework! – apparently only released on the European version of the single and not in the UK – why the hell did they do that?)
Really eager to get my hands on Lazy Fat People as well; any audio-clips guys?

But anyway, THE LP of the month is Booka Shade’s ‘Movements’. Plain perfection and what a progression compared to ‘Memento’! Booka Shade can do a Tiefschwarz with this album and by that I mean: blow big. (Too bad however that Get Physical’s promotion isn’t all that..)
