All Over The Dancefloor

May 17, 2010

Oh man! So much going on

As usual, RCRD LBL comes through with the dancefloor fire. The Scissor Sisters have generously leaked a preview track for their forthcoming album Night Work due out next month. “Invisible Light” is like a trip to some 80’s dystopian pleasure dome, which is a lot like the Sisters’ first album. Could this be a return to form for the band? I’m just happy to see that they keep making music.

Meanwhile, XXXChange, the producer from Spank Rock, goes to work on Kele Okereke. Kele is fresh out of Bloc Party with some new solo material, and XXXChange’s remix of “Tenderoni” takes the song into pounding, pounding techno territory.

By the way, if you dug the Kele/XXXChange song, XXXChange switches up the game with a more disco-fied mix of Cee-Lo’s hot “Hello Miss,” which is a totally free download on the ATL RMX compilation. The mix also features tracks and remixes from Young Jeezy, Flying Lotus, B.o.B., Prefuse 73 and more. Adult Swim has pulled together a cool fusion of southern hip hop and electronic music. Personally I feel that the compilation is crazy uneven, but free is free.

I would like to get more into this later, but Ninja Tune, one of my favorite record labels, is counting down to its 20th Anniversary. Not many labels outside of the majors last 10 years, let alone 20 in these turbulent times. They’ve set up a Ninja Tune XX site with a 20 week countdown to the big Two Oh. Get to it!

Rest In Peace, Ronnie James Dio (1942-2010).
