Something a little different from me this week. Whilst it's not aimed at the dancefloor I'm really proud of this mix. Lemon Jelly meets New Order is probably the best description I've heard. It's strictly promo only for the moment but will see a proper release at some point next year. You can buy the original version via the iTunes link and make sure to check out the video link too - which links to their previous single, Spitfire (another track that is due for an official Leftside Wobble remix at some point next year).
Public Service Broadcasting are a London-based duo whose main ingredients are: 1) J. Willgoose, Esq. on guitars, banjos, other stringed instruments, samplings, electronic things; 2) Wrigglesworth on drums, pianos and other electronic things.
Taking samples from old public information films, archive footage and propaganda material, and mould them into 21st century songs.
Everest is based on the 1953 film 'The Conquest of Everest', which told the story of Hillary & Tensing successful ascent of the tallest mountain in the world, and which was directed by expedition member George Lowe.
The band have been getting major props from both 6 Music and XFM (amongst many others) and are preparing a major label album release for next year.

A personal edit that I'm releasing to celebrate the 6th Birthday of Big In Japan this month: http://tinyurl.com/bnsnc93 (with a party featuring the legendary Daniel Wang and disco don Ray Mang).
This ones all about the rhythm track overdubs and subtle filtering. Sometimes an edit needs a very light touch and with a track so perfect this is certainly the case here.

The latest Midnight Riot compilation comes out today featuring cuts from a veritable who's who of the current boogie/disco scene - http://www.junodownload.com/products/midnight-riot-volume-3/2074996-02/
Just what you need to ease yourself into the week. Peter Kuder (of Kruder & Dorfmeister fame) blends his favourite blissed out Pink Floyd moments for just over an hour of horizontal heaven. Enjoy, this ones rather special. x

As soon as I heard this I knew I needed a version to play out! It may be from an Ikea advert but what a great record, definitely deserves to be a top 10 hit. Buy the original on iTunes - http://tinyurl.com/d3zonk8

Very seldom does a 4 track EP come along where each & every track blows me away. Definitely one of my favourite releases in a very long time:
