This week’s House

Posted in Music rambling on August 3, 2008 by stilikon

Holy shit, all I’ve been listening to this week is HOUSE,

and not just any House, but french 90’s (and 2000’s) House- And holy *insert profanity of choice* is this some addicitve stuff!

Full of catchy hooks and heavy drums, all side chained like crazy, this makes one awesome genre…  If you now can call it that.  (Of course I can, I’m Mr M.)

My favourite artist is hands down Thomas Bangalter- No, not his Daft Punk stuff, but his other fancy-pants fashionable house tracks like So Much Love To Give by Together, which is Thomas Bangalter and Dj Falcon … Together, obviously.

Not that I don’t like Daft Punk, they’re one of my favourite musicians, but this is just so raw and straight-up-in-your-face-dance-or-die music- Much like Daft Punk’s Homework, which I seriously sometimes prefer over the super-mega-famous Discovery.

Why?

Well, first of all, Discovery has got a more commercial and clean sound- No more crazy 303 squeaks or dirty dist shit going around like it’s 1944 and all hell has broken loose.

And that’s kinda sad in my opinion- I like the crazy things, I enjoyed the screaming synths of Homework, I liked the constant hard ass tweaking of the 909 and yes I want you to bring the funk back!

Seriously, it doesn’t get more House-y than this- House is frickin’ supposed to be just hands down dance music, made for one purpose only, and that is to make people dance and spontaneously combus- No wait, that was a Buffy episode.

But dance nevertheless.

Anyway, to get to the point, this music fucking rocks, now here’s all the links you have been waiting for;

Thomas Bangalter – Colossus

Louis Laroche – Love Get his Peach EP for free on his myspace!

Together – Together

Le Knight Club – Hysteria

Alan Braxe – Vertigo & Thomas Bangalter Remix

Daft Punk – Live mixing In USA somewere

Stardust – Music Sounds Better With You

Daft Punk – Phoenix

Hopefully that’s enough to keep you dancing for a while!

So obviously I have been very lazy with all the web hosting, designing, artist hunting and urh… Well you get the point.

So my last resort was WordPress.

Free, easy and quick- just my cup of tea!

Jokes aside, I am going to pick up a good web hosting solution and hopefully get the first two releases up and running-

Curious? I bet you are.

Well, all I can say at this moment is that #stil0 will be a compilation with a number of tracks from artists I know and #stil1 will be an in-house release with some deep night time music.

So until I make a proper website, enjoy my blog!

Yours truly,
