Like the title says Tiga’s back with a new track ‘Trust Your Body’ getting released this week on his label Turbo Recordings! The track was created with help with Finland’s own Jori Hulkkonen, one of the most underrated producers in the world! With just about two decades under his belt the man has become a living legend working with the likes of José González, Jesper Dahlbäck, Chromeo and a shit ton more!

He also has a pretty cool last name.

But wait there’s more…

M A N I K plays Krankbrother party

Posted in mix, Parties, podcast with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on September 14, 2011 by rachaelwilliams

M A N I K djingThis Saturday sees NYC DJ and producer M A N I K play at the final summer Krankbrother’s party alongside Nick Curly in London. It was meant to be a secret daytime terrace party with sunshine, pimms, bbq, dancing and sick tunes but alas there was a license-revoking-based-incident and they’ve had to find a new venue. What they’ve replaced it with sounds pretty good though, with a “beautiful massive warehouse space and a large outdoor courtyard….. DJs inside and outside.” MANIK’s sound covers everything from house to disco to electro to funk and so seems perfectly suited to laid-back daytime partying. Imagine hot girls in sunglasses swaying to sunflecked beats and you’ve basically stepped inside my expectations for the weekend. Tickets have also sold out now but they will have 100 on the door so rock up at 2pm if you want in. You will have to keep checking the event page to find out where to actually go though.

*UPDATE* The address has been revealed as: 77-81, Scrubs Lane, Kensal Green, London, NW10 6QW.  Make sure you’re there early enough to grab a ticket on the door!

If this all sounds like major hassle, please know that it’ll be *totally* worth it. Simply get your ears round this recent Autobrennt podcast by M A N I K. Opening with Tensnake’s remix of Little Dragon’s Ritual Union feels a bit obvious, but then, as the remix of Tigerskin – Unreal Thing kicks in, it’s just one of those moments where a smile breaks out of your face and you want to start dancing. This whole podcast is jammed full of amazing remixes, from the Life & Death remix of No Regular Play’s track looking, to Will Saul’s remix of Foreign Language by Flight Facilities to Tensnake’s superb (yep, him again) reinterpretation of Runaway – Stories. With M A N I K’s own tracks, Homework and even Black Strobe’s Italian Fireflies all making appearances; it just doesn’t let up. Seriously, download this mix and tell me you won’t be at least considering how to blag your way into this party/front of the ticket queue.

Festival Review – Secret Garden Party 2010

I’ve just got enough of my brain back to tap this out. The remains are resting in a field, in Cambridgeshire, with the dried out leftovers of the Secret Garden Party… it may not have been much of a secret, but it was a great party! With intimate stages full of excellent music, I just have to have a little shout about the things I saw and heard last weekend.

I was surprised to find such good music where worthy headliners are deemed to be Marina and the Diamonds (eh!?). It turned out as one of the best festivals I’ve had the pleasure of dancing my arse off at. Here’s a sprinkling of what made that happen…

Exclusive Slaughterbrains mix

Posted in disco, mix with tags , , , , on June 17, 2010 by ksimsek

Friend of the blog Slaughterbrains has made us an exclusive mixtape! He’ll be tearing up the decks at CAMP on Old Street tonight for the first ever Matters Of The Heart. Don’t be fooled, this isn’t emo, it’s a new series of irregular but soon to be sought after parties in and around London.

The dream team behind the night are Slaughterbrains and Cologne, and it’s these two that’ll be at the helm for the first party tonight. Cologne’s mixtape on the tumblr is obscenely good, and is definitely worth a download. Slaughterbrains has set blogs around the world alight in recent months with his reinterpretation of Dragonette, and with whispers of collaborations with some hotly tipped acts including brightlight brightlight for an upcoming EP you’re probably going to hear a lot more of him.

Actually, you can hear more now – here’s his exclusive WANARB mix. Compiled from bits of glitchy/grisly electro disco jerking bodyparts for your aural pleasure.
