Treats For Your Tricks Mega Post

Saturday, October 27th, 2012

Got a few mixtapes, a bunch of tracks and then run down of some notable events taking place this evening.

Aaaand GOOO!!!


Karmon is a deep house producer/DJ from the Netherlands. The last year has been especially successful for him as his releases have garnered massive support accross the globe. I personally love his work and I’m really loving this set he put down for a radio station in Amsterdam.

UK badass Dusky is pretty much a household name these days and he further cemented that fact by laying down a most excellent mix for BBC Radio 1. Essential indeed.

My favorite Swedish Nu Disco/House outfit Monitor 66 recently dropped this amazingly sexy and soulful mix for British Label House Of Disco Records. Def a must listen.

Finally, I’d like to do more shameless self promotion by sharing my OctoBearTape with you all.


Aeroplane featured this lovely little remix from British house producer Ben Gomori on his recent mixtape. Good stuff.

Holy Ghost! is easily one of my favorite DFA outfits and one of my favorite bands in general and this is their latest (and might I say festive) masterpiece. Not a free DL so I recommend heading over to Itunes and snagging a copy.

Yep..yet another batch of brilliant freebies from Mr Malinchak. I’m firmly convinced that he can do no wrong.

A fantastic edit from sir Gigamesh.

I wasn’t really a huge fan of the original version of RAC’s first original Hollywood, but the remixes thus far have been brilliant. Cassian‘s is easily my favorite, but Treasure Finger‘s completely flipped it and I’m certainly digging his take as well.

Edwin Van Cleef blessed us with this gem a few days back…simple yet catchy and quite addicting.

This one might be a miss for some, but Paul Simon’s Graceland was a staple of my childhood and an absolutley fantastic album. This is a very simple yet effective edit of one of my favorite tracks off that album from Dutch producer The Starkiller.

Bufi‘s been rocking my world as of late. He’s one of many producers catching rec out of Mexico right now.

British producer T. Williams has taken the latest from Disclosure molded it into a four on the floor banger. I personally think it knocks the original clear out of the water. No word on a release yet.

Duke Dumont has been smashing it as of late hence the reason he’s one of my favorite producers right now. Coming on the heals of his most notable release to date “For Club Play Only” is this exclusive he released for free via Annie Mac.


Please don’t forget that the 11th installment of TheHundred is popping off this evening at Beauty Bar. The headliner tonight is none other than garage/house legend Todd Edwards featuring support from locals option4, Vanish, Werq and Fun Factory. Doors are at 9 and cover won’t kick in til 9:30 so if you thurr early, it’s free. If you don’t have no fear because cover is only $6 bucks which is a STEAL when compared to the talent in the building. If you’d like a taste of what to expect, then check out this freebie he released about a month ago and this video of his fabled Boiler Room set.


9-945PM ::::: option4 :::::: (Deep house set)
945-1030PM :::: Vanish ::::: (VCR)
1030-1115PM ::::: Werq ::::: (Discotheque Denver)
1115- 12AM ::::: Fun Factory ::::: (Nasty Track)
12-1230AM :::: option4 ::::: (House set)

12:30AM – CLOSE ::::: TODD EDWARDS :::::

Aaaand if you’re still feeling rambunctious post Beauty Bar then there’s an after party a few doors down at the Deer Pile featuring disco extraordinaire Black Amex out of Boulder.

Happy Halloween to you all. Cheers:)

Scrimptacular “Treats” (ColeCo, Van She, Country Club, Cassian, Disclosure + More)

Saturday, June 9th, 2012

Below you’ll find some selections I’ve been enjoying and anticipating as of late. One common denominator you’ll notice throughout this post is Australia. It seems this mystical and beautiful country has been inspiring a very steady stream of extremely talented musicians and producers over the past few years. I mean we have Cut Copy, Van She, Flight Facilities, Cassian, Bag Raiders and the list goes on. They’ve really come a long way since Men At Work and Silverchair. Anyhew…enjoy.

ColeCo hails from Toronto (that’s in Canada) and are slowly, but surely making a buzz with their brilliant Nu Disco infused productions and remixes. I highly doubt anyone remembers, but I did a post about them this past Febuary in regards to their EP Don’t Stop of which you can download or free at their website Below is their latest and it’s fantastic. It consists of a nicely flipped Brandy sample and that Tropical Disco sound that I find highly reminiscent of Moon Boots and Perseus productions. This track will be on their next EP due out shortly.

ColeCo – Ricky Smiley

Van She is yet another act from Australia that’s been making waves for sometime now and I’m highly anticipating their new album. Below is the latest single from the album slated for release on July 6th. You will also find SebastiAn’s Electro infused take on their other single and title track from the album Idea Of Happiness.

Van She – Jamaica

Van She – Idea Of Happiness (SebastiAn Remix) {Free Download}

Flight Facilities (also from Australia) released their latest single With You and it features vocals from Hot Chip drummer Grovensor. Beautiful.

Flight Facilities feat Grovensor – With You

The Magician offered up his take on RAC’s latest single and first original production and I must say that it blows the original out of the water.

RAC feat Penguin Prison – Hollywood (The Magician Remix) {Free Download}

Chicago’s own Flosstradamus teamed up with DJ Slink for yet another Trapped out banger. They’ve been dishing out tracks like mad men recently and Trap seems to be the styling of choice. Not complaining as it seems to be working wonderfully.

Flosstradamus & DJ Slink – Test Me {Free Download}

While we’re on the Chicago tip here’s some Only Children. Love what these gents have been doing.

Only Children – Down Fever (Original Mix) {Free Download}

Now I bring you back to Australia with Country Club. Country Club consists of Australia’s Cassian and Shazam and I’ve included some their stuff in previous posts, but only recently found out exactly who they are. I was pleasantly surprised to hear that Cassian was involved. Their new and first EP together drops next week. Below are 2 of my fav selections from the release.

Country Club – Excuse Me (Original Mix)

Country Club – Croquet (Original Mix)

Cassian’s obviously been busy on his own as well because he has a new EP dropping June 19th. Sounding fantastic as expected.

Cassian – The Love Cuts EP

Hailing from the UK, Disclosure has been on a tirade as of late dropping jaws left and right. I describe their unique style as a hibachi chopping of R&B vocals seamlessly infused with garage and house. Below are a few selections (you’ll find one more in the bonus beats section at the bottom), but I recommend a full on investigation. They dropped their latest “The Face EP” (available on Beatport, Amazon and itunes) this past week so that’s a perfect place to start.

Disclosure feat Ria Ritchie – Control (Original Mix)

Q-Tip – Work It Out (Disclosure Booty Call Edit) {Free Download}

Finally…a remix of Ellie Goulding’s cover of The Weeknd’s High For This from Monsieur Adi. The gent hails from Paris and he did a great job here. As poppy as her music may be….I still find her beautiful voice absolutely irresistible especially when covering The Weeknd.

Ellie Goulding – High For This (Monsieur Adi Remix) {Free Download}

Oh and here’s my SummerSustenanceMixtape in case anyone missed it. See the previous post for track listing.

Collin McKenna – SummerSustenanceMixtape {Free Download}

Jessie Ware – Running (Disclosure Remix)

Off Da Clock – Boogie News (Original Mix)

Moon Boots – Bills to Pay (Original Mix)

Beni – Someone Just Like You (Posso Remix)

Cheers and have a fantastic weekend. That is all.
