Little White Earbuds July Charts
Artwork by Heiko Kiendl-Müller
01. Andy Stott, “Massacre” [Modern Love] (buy)
File Stott in the “Can Do No Wrong” folder, as each of his releases continues to push the envelope and the punters onto the dance floor. This is like two dubby sides of a coin duking it out and the winner is everyone with ears.
02. Stereotyp, “Keepin Me” (Fauna Flash remix) [G-Stone Recordings] (buy)
The brilliant interaction between Sandra Kurzweil’s and the rounded-edge dub waves calls to mind the Basic Channel offshoot Main Street Records and one of my favorite series of records, Round One to Round Five. Moving because it leaves no other option. (Thanks for the head’s up, Ronan.)
03. Matt John, “Soulkaramba” [Bar25] (buy)
Whereas Villalobos’ “Encuentro…” was a effervescent block party, “Soulkaramba” is a crowded house party, full of good ideas which overlap quite comfortably inside the tune’s 13 minutes. And my god, that rubbery bass line is out of sight.
04. Naughty, World EP [Moodmusic]
DJ Naughty has been kicking around for some time but it’s taken this EP for him to gain a bit more recognition. Will you choose the delicate and succulent female side or the hard-nosed banger male side? Both could easily fit inside one set.
05. The Tuss, Rushup Edge [Rephlex]
It’s as easy as this: Richard D. James probably made these teeth-grindingly intense acid tracks and it’s heaps better than the first EP.
06. Len Faki, “Rainbow Delta” (Jerome Sydenham remix) [Ostgut Tonträger]
07. Agnès, “Controversial Advantage” (Ripperton’s Game Set & Match remix) [Resopal Red]
08. Cassy, “Somelightuntothenight” [Beatstreat]
09. The Mountain People, “Mountain003” [Mountain People]
10. Simian Mobile Disco, “I Believe” [Wichita]
11. Kerri Chandler, Computer Games EP [Deeply Rooted House]
12. Djinxx, “Be Quiet” (2000 and One remix) [Electrochoc]
13. Harri & the Revenge, “Lunar Tune” [Five20East]
14. Dusty Kid, “Psika” [Boxer Recordings]
15. Justice, “Newjack” [Vice Records]
01. Samim, “Heater” [Get Physical Music]
You could easily accuse me of hating fun for not being among this tune’s massive following, for not buying into its barn house romp accordion riff. But I ask you, good techno/house fans, do we really need “Cotton-Eyed Joe 2007”?
02. Italoboyz, “Viktor Casanova” [Mothership]
03. Justice, “D.A.N.C.E” (Jackson remix) [Ed Banger/Because Music]
04. Avus, “Fancy Arse” (James Holden’s Sunday Night Extension) [Perc Trax]
05. Anja Schneider, “Loop De Mer” [Mobilee]
