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’.
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).
Bumblebeez return to the World Wild Web with a HUGE remix pack that showcases a whole spectrum of the Bang Gang Recordings family. The original web sheriff has rounded up all the ravers in his paddock and put them into one shed together For a remix hoedown.
On the cusp of their debut release (Acid One) on Bang Gang Franz & Shape drop in to transform ‘Rodeo’ into a extended acidic big beat monster straight from the record racks of 98 and into the digital future of 2011. Expect fuckloads more of this nonsense from them in the coming months.
Jagwar Ma (the alias of boy wonder and mega producer Jono Ma) manchesterfies ‘Betty Jane’ and proves that yes – a computer can love you….. even as much as you love it.
BBZ have polished off a pirate mix of ‘I dont dance to the robot’. This booty version will have you doing the tango and the fox-trot Simultaneously while googling sexy pirate pic’s of Chris Colonna.
wordlife (all lower case) are two doods who make forward thinking house music.. Soon to release with Bang Gang 12 Inches keep two eyes out for dem. Coming to a dance floor near you!
NTEIBINT… what to say about this Athens cowboy. Techno-Funk, static ,bass & Horse Riding. This Bang Gang soft-more has got you wog stomping yo feet to the ‘Let’s Go Ride Some Horses’ Beat. Also soon to release with us we are happy to say.. this cowboy is family!
LONG LIVE CHARLIE THE INTERNET COWBOI!
Almost 3 years ago the Bumblebeez released their debut album….. what have they been doing since ? After throwing down 10 cubic tonnes of heaving severity at many a party around the universe and remixing all his dopest homies (including Tame Impala, Presets and Beck) whilst living in a caravan that measures 2×2 he found enough time to circumnavigate the earth by foot and triumphtly waltz nude back into Braidwood. Bumblebeez main brain Christopher Colonna put the time aside to then complete 248 new songs about his travels and the settlements he has created & inhabitants he has danced with.
The first EP is about a cowboi called Charlie, who ran the Wild Wild Web (A place that Colonna had found in between Mongolia and India) who rode horses and had the best paddocks in the shire. It tells us of his babe Betty Jane who ran a internet whiskey shop and liked to post pictures of her self around the Wild Wild Web. Then one day Bad Sheriff came to town he had a virus and tied everyones horses to a train and ate everybodys steak and shot all the ravers. Check it out down here and get your hat blown clean off your head.
If you are like me – you have been waiting too long for some new Bumblebeez material. Seriously. Too Long. So when we had the opportunity to actually shine some light on new BBZ shit – we jumped in head first. And what we have in our hands is a new brain-melting, pistol-toting, techno-ranch of an EP. The story goes something like this……..
Once upon a time there was a cowboi called Charlie,who ran the wild wild web,he rode horses and had the best paddocks in the shire,his babe Betty jane ran a internet whiskey shop and liked to post pictures of her self on the wild wild web.Then one day Bad sheriff came to town he was a virus and tied everyones horses to a train and ate everybodys steak and shot all the ravers.Charlie had to do something!
When we relaunched our website a short time ago – we made a promise that we would have loads of presents for you. Usually in the form of free music – and a lot of it from our label. Some old, some new, some red and some blue. Well this number is both old and new, and also a little red and a little blue….. It’s Jad The Ladyboy’s remix of Prince Umberto (Bumblebeez) & Jono Ma’s ghetto-techno-crunk track ‘Do the Foxtrot’.
