7 Wonders of The Weekend

First up. More Ben Westbeech. Hopefully your as excited as I am about its release, if not, i suggest you go here.
Well yeah, his albums droppping the end of this month, and from what ive heard it will be a gem. (Check a previous post for another album track). Music that makes you feel good. Going to post probably my favourite track to date by him, a collaboration with drum and bass duo Die and Clipz. Cop the vinyl from his record label brownswood recordings.
Two mixes of it on the vinyl: lovers mix for the more laid back among us. Rockers mix, for those who like it slightly more hectic.

MP3: Ben Westbeech - Get Closer (Lovers Mix)

Next. Looking for my sunday night music fix, i decided to tune into leftfield Rob da Bank in his weekly slot on Radio 1. Just in time to catch Kate Nash's maida vale session. Something i would usually bypass, listening in the dead of night in my favourite pair of headphones, i think ive become a bit of a fan of her. Like lilly allen, but better and more comfortable in the indie spectrum. Particular track that caught my eye was the b side to first single "Carolines A Victim" i think, well anyway, its called Birds. And because I heard it done acoustically first, i think you should too. Even if its not your usual, try it, whats the worst that could happen. . . KATE NASH MYSPACE .

MP3: Kate Nash - Birds (XFM Session)

Again, more music discovered on Rob Da Bank. British hiphop duo Dan le Sac vs. Scroobius Pip, played a very unique session. Wordsmith is Scroobius Pip, Le Sac is the beatmaker. Together it goes pretty well indeed. Please support them, as i believe they have only landed a record deal for the first single. Theyre top guys too. TO hear this session and Kate Nash, listen again to Rob Da Banks show on Radio 1. Check the myspace for details on how to grab one of the limited vinyls. Or downloads.

"Thou shalt not read NME. Thall shalt not stop liking a band just because they’ve become popular. Thou shalt not question Stephen Fry. Thou shalt not judge a book by it’s cover. Thou shalt not judge Lethal Weapon by Danny Glover. Thall shalt not buy Coca-Cola products. Thou shalt not buy Nestle products. Thou shalt not go into the woods with your boyfriend’s best friend, take drugs and cheat on him. Thou shalt not fall in love so easily. "

Mp3: Dan Le Sac Vs. Scroobius Pip - Thou Shalt Always Kill

Been playing this tune a lot recently, unfortunately don't know too much about it, except that its deep and hard, and will be very well received by any electro fans out there. Thanks to Fluokids for this, where you can also grab the song from the link below.

MP3: Prinz & Wallus - Musikgeschichte (Dennis Hurwitz Remix)

Link through Fluokids.

3 To go.

Mark Ronson's Versions draws ever nearer. Luckily enough ive managed to get hold of a single from the album, his take on The Smiths "Stop Me". The single will feature two remixes, both with dubs, from Chicken Lips and Dirty South. The latter being the one that ive been enjoying this weekend. Definetely increased my anticipation for the album. Support him on his myspace, here.
Or pre-order the album here.
Roll on April 6th.

MP3: Mark Ronson - Stop Me (Dirty South Remix)

Following the Switch Remix of "Tell Me", I have come across the Phones Remix. Phones being esteemed Indie producer Paul Epworth (who conincidentally, is producing Kate Nash Album). But yeah, this one shades it for me. Big pounding drums, bellowing synth.

I would put you all a link to grab the single, but i reckon hes got too much money already.

MP3: P. Diddy - Tell Me (Phones Remix)

Im going to leave you with the Justice remix of N.E.R.D "She Wants To Move". Probably my current favourite. No point saying anything else about it, just classic Justice.

MP3: N.E.R.D. - She Wants To Move (Justice Remix)
