Today we are going to usher a few friends into a small room dim the lights and sing our praises to NTEIBINT. Our new Lord. We can see his name written in the skies above us , yet none of us can pronounce it. Who is he ? This Greek titan has survived the financial woes of the normal man and has evoked a constant dance match between the elbows and the knees & is the very multi-faceted guise of George Bakalakos.
An electronic storm brought him to us, and now we (whilst donned in white robes) carry him across a scarred and burning digital platform to fight all the future wars of musical mayhem and hold the mediocrity of the phoney electro pirates at bay.
‘Everyone knows a Dave’ is a small collection of songs from his personal cloud (not the sound type, the God type) pulled into a amalgamation of awesomeness. No sonic vibration is left unfelt here – from the balearic funk of ‘Morning Breeze’ to the saxomatic sexual trance of ‘Jackpot’ and the warehouse proto-rap jam ‘Never use Force’ NTEIBINT weaves an elastic web of beats and harmonies that even the craftiest fly cannot evade.
Pushing into the outer reaches of the dance floor NTEIBINT has coaxed fellow God-like creatures to release some of their computer box gold onto the original tracks. ATTAR! (of Belgium waffle descent) waves his disco wand over ‘Morning Breeze’ whilst ‘Tunnel Signs’ takes the darker route down Goblin Boulevard into the early hours of trisco-dance. Bang Gang bad-boy and bass’n’ball freakster Chris Colonna sticks on his Bumblebeez batting hat and smashes ‘Never Use Force’ out of the park into next-door’s housing commission breakdance comp. And as a lovely touch the man, the George, the Dave, our God slips in a nifty dub of ‘Never Use…’ keep to us all from straying into the wilderness sans hypno-hoppo shoes.
You can preview all the tracks below, and also download a FREE copy of ‘Jackpot’.
You’ve heard it in da club, you’ve fought your neighbours cat to it, you’ve fallen over to it, and you’ve watched Soulwax destroy the minions with their animation of the cover?? now take it out of the internet – stick it onto your iPhone, usb stick, compact disc or record it onto tape and break it off in the most indecent fashion possible. Watch your friends set themselves on fire to it, and watch your enemies weep in admiration. This is the real deal – and sleeping on it would mean that you were already 6 feet deep. It fits like a pair of rusty undies – and that excites us.
Check all the madness below, and/or head over to your favourite digital outlet and blow those penny’s you’ve been hoarding….
Here it comes – the newbie from Light Year…. not much more else to say than BAM BAM BAM.
From deep within the deepest depths of the deep dark scene that is Berlin comes Obi Blanche.
A street cred toting , phycadelic b boy whose reputation proceeds even your wildest dreams. . You know…. that guy who tends to broaden your horizons, who always bursts your proverbial bubble . He stomps on that square you live in and has you saying “thank you can we have some more?”
First up is ’72 hours’, big, then Big then a little BiGGeR, Then oh wait.. there it is! If god went to rave, he would be handing out prophylactics to the masses in hopes that the human race would have a chance of survival against this monster . Big everything! Did we mention it was pretty big?
‘One With Empty’ takes the joyride into more melodic moments even featuring background vocal harmonies from the man himself! But dont get it twisted, come 1.35 he lays everything on the line and takes your body back to the dance dungeon.
To tie you over from now until then, here is his guest mix he did for BORIS DLUGOSCH’s radio show. Listen closely you might hear some stuff off the new ep!!!
What do you do when 2 of Sydney’s most influential disc jocks walk into your studio with a trunk stuffed to the point of combustion full of bass heavy, gender bending, future tech laced harmonies? You take off your clothes and get out the record contract…. but make some much needed amendments.
Clause 1.4 : the above mentioned artist must provide a weekly thesis on the future of the dance floor.
Clause 2.7 : Acquire remix from like minded individuals…. Panteros & Verwey.
Clause 3.1 : Artists and Label are required to partake in celebrations on a regular basis, in the form of a techno party.
Clause 4.1 : A & R will consist of Label heads overseeing the artist implementing there evolving sound to the general public via large speakers. The artist will Inject booty crack directly into the soul of the listener. Not doing so will result in a direct breach of the contract agreed upon by both parities.
This is how it went for them – Birth, Rap, Punk, House, Life. And if it went that way for you well then good on ya. But if it didn’t here is where you should start… maybe work your way backwards, and in a few months you might find yourself being born again……
BANG051 is just around the corner and this time we bring you wORDLIFE with their debut ‘Birth, Punk, Rap, House. Life’ ep.
wORDLIFE Is made up of Hall of famers Kato Aka Barney Aka the peoples champion, and Adam Bozzetto aka shy caller aka Bozetto. These two circuit disc jockeys have teamed up to infuse cross genre party, booty, funk house music to the fullest times a million. Already balls deep in the remix game they have thumped out work for The Bumblebeez, Funkin Mat & Teki Latex and Heavy Feet.
To Celebrate the occasion that is release time, they will be spinning records at Motorik this friday.
To Celebrate that party they have completed a mix for you and the other guy/girl.
Bumblebeez return with a whole new kind of tropical Indian endless summer with Summer Bum, their new release on Bang Gang. It’s the first single to hit the towel rack off their new long player coming in December 2011.
Summer Bum is the kind of post-carribean jiggy-beach baby that would have UB40 crying into their red wine & turn your warm-water into a coconut cocktail. As you’d expect from a BBZ track there’s more than just a bit going on; mellow expansiveness fused with a hotbox claustrophobia like this doesn’t happen everyday or by itself. Interrupted guitars posing as dub horns, half a siren, & surgical synth steel drum under a sunscreen dripping Vila. It’s a effortless party tune that draws inspiration from an epic vacation in Sicily where the buns and bums of European summer ran wild and free. It was brought to life in a Copenhagen basement this is the Bumblebeez at their most forward thinking.
With the production help of Jagwar Ma and Harvey & the mix being controlled by ‘King Zdar’ this is the extended BBZ family in full force. A flash forward to the future request line – a vibrant slice of immediacy that bleeds the warmer months of the year without forcing it on you (even with the word “summer” in there).
James Curd has ventured across the Pacific Ocean to plant his neatly styled flag on Australian shores to claim residency . The land down under gaining a valuable import of talent from the City of Chicago, Chi-City aka Chi Town.
Once in our midst, the collaboration between Bang Gang and James Curd was more than immanent. There were many random encounters in the underbelly of Sydney nightclubs that eventually lead to the formation of one of his greatest creations to date, The Man + Machine Ep.
James, a fine purveyor of head nodding dance music, produced a 3 tracker of disco infiltrated, melody driven, machine laden dance floor tracks. Including remixes from Richard Richard (Plant Music) and old school house dude and long time friend of James Luke Solomon, this pack should be packed neatly in your picnic basket every day next to the Ribena juicebox and jelly sandwiches.
Official release date is the 21st of October (Tomorrow!!)
