Happy Friday! Are you getting ready for the weekend? Getting ready to hit “da club”? Where by “da club” that could either be an actual nightclub to party and relax or staying at home to party and relax. Let this Essential Mix from August by T.E.E.D get you amped for “da club”

An older release on the same netlabel as doremimate, シャルロ/Charlot makes some excellent house/electro jams, including a house track that samples Edward Meeker’s American classic, “Take Me Out to the Ball Game”.
Also check out their post-rock, shoegaze release from last year titled Out of Orbit. The mood is completely different but it is oh-so-lovely.
Happy Friday! Have a cool weekend :D

Here’s a cool idea from Bleep: they had their staff pick the 100 best tracks from the year 2012 and put them together in a compilation for you to buy in MP3/WAV/FLAC.
The team have picked the best in all styles of music, from house music and techno through to the the more experimental spheres of electronic music and indie / alternative rock.
I’m almost halfway through listening to the whole thing and there are some really excellent tracks in there, a lot of stuff that’s completely new to me. Wow, that was AMAZING. Highly, highly recommended.
Sure, it’s $45 for the MP3 version, but that’s half the price of an iTunes or Amazon download. HALF THE PRICE. Get on this, it’s a fascinating tour through 2012 in music and it’s only available until February 6th!
Seriously fun EP from OVERWERK, it has all of the crunchiness that I want out of electro accompanied by small but awesome vocal samples,
OVERWERK has several more tracks and remixes over on his SoundCloud.
I would apologize for all these house/disco mixes if I didn’t love them so much. I don’t know much about the producers for this one other than they’re from Glasgow and they mix some fun music. Perfect for an afternoon stuck at work, at least you can dance in your chair!
It’s hard to think of a nicer, more soft-spoken, more talented individual than Henry Homesweet. For a while, he has been producing these videos of him playing around with an assortment of gear in his basement or in his out-house (does it mean something else across the pond? not sure), this latest series focuses on some experiments with hardware, I think he’s syncing the 2 GBAs to the Roland TR-808 via that box with the LEDs and 4 big blue buttons. Don’t miss anything Henry Homesweet does, the man is brilliant in the studio and on-stage. Oh, here’s the first video in the series.
Bonus: His latest full album “Enter 5D” is available to stream on his SoundCloud
