BUGGED Out! Presents Suck My Deck by Brodinski

BUGGEDOut! Presents Suck My Deck by Brodinski
Label: New State Music ~ Release: August 09

The UK’s most enduring, influential clubnight Bugged Out! return with another instalment of their highly respected Suck My Deck album series, following releases by Simian Mobile Disco and Boys Noize. This time the mixing honours fall on hotly tipped DJ-producer Brodinski.

Brodinski is one of the most exciting electronic artists to explode onto the scene in recent years. Hailing from Reims, Lille in France, Brodinski’s musical style joins the dots between noisy techno, bass heavy house through to melodic minimal and is renowned for his tight, impeccable programming and unfailing energy behind the decks- the probable reason why he has a rammed global DJ diary playing for the likes of Fabric, Wax:On, Sonar, I Love Techno, Radio Soulwax, Turbo and not forgetting Bugged Out!

Brodinski first pricked everyone’s ears when his debut track Bad Runner was leaked onto blog sites months before its release on Swiss imprint Mental Groove in October 2007. Supported by everyone from Soulwax, Tiga, Chloe, Erol Alkan, A Trak, Busy P, Switch and Laurent Garnier; the peak time techno track (which featured what sounded like Martian’s yakking through it) was one of the biggest tunes of the year.

Since Bad Runner Brodinski has been heavily in demand for his remix duties, having the ability to apply his varied taste in music to each individual track. From the acidic (D.I.M), to vocal techno (Das Pop), to melancholic end-of-nighters (Klaxons), Bonde de Role, Shoes, DJ Mehdi and Adam Sky have also been lucky to have the Brodinski remix treatment of late.

Suck My Deck By Brodinski encapsulates both the Frenchman’s sound and Bugged Out!’s style. Opening with Duke Dumont’s remix of Bathroom Gurgle by Late Of The Pier, a selection of tracks come from the likes of electro dandy Tiga (Shoes), current production collaborator Yuksek (We R Not Supermenz), fellow French techno don Popof (High & Down) and Wolfen by Boy 8-Bit plus party bangers from DJ Zinc Blunt Edge, Tom Flynn Blow Out and Iron Curtis Solgerwood all help combine the dark, bouncy, percussive and transcendent elements of this compilation.

“Expect to be hearing a lot more about Brodinski this year and beyond!" (Annie Mac)

With a huge summer DJ diary and production projects with Yuksek, Ebony Bones, Mumdance and Noob, watch Brodkinski make a big impact in 2009!

Boy 8-Bit 'Baltic Pine' - This Is Music

Press Release
Boy 8-Bit ‘Baltic Pine’ EP
This Is Music
Released August 23rd

Boy 8-Bit follows his ‘The Suspense is Killing Me’ release on Diplo’s Mad Decent imprint with his four-tracker monster ‘Baltic Pine’ EP on This Is Music Records.

This Is Music Records, the record releasing arm of This Is Music (who manage Simian Mobile Disco, Little Boots, A-Trak and Boy 8-Bit, amongst others) has previously scored successful releases including the DJ Mujava's underground hit “Township Funk”, and 12”s and albums from Lord Skywave, Alexander Robotnick, and Sisters Of Transistors.

The EP’s title track ‘Baltic Pine’ bounces an elastic bass-with-a-punch whilst its magical melody evolves out of the groove, taking you skipping away until it breaks into a ebullient cacophony of accordion, piano and brass.

‘Wolfen’ hits heavier with an eerie intro pulsing as the backdrop and bass propel it forwards. Until that oppressive, elephantine trumpet sound drops in, obliterating all before it. A six-minute horror juggernaut for the dancefloor.

‘A City Under Siege’ takes b-more kick patterns and laces them with a ridiculously euphoric horn riff; fusing these simple elements, layering the horns up into a bumping, hands in the air moment.

‘Chapel of Ghouls’ - referencing 80's horror soundtracks in name and style, with a winding electronic organ and a heavy layered background… producing an eerie soundtrack to a gothic charnel-house rave.

With support already coming from Touche /Fake Blood, Annie Mac, Diplo, , Plump DJs, Brodinski, Crookers, Sinden, Scratch Perverts, A-Trak, The Loose Cannons and many more, this EP has already got massive all over it.

Boy 8-Bit AKA Dave Morris exploded on to the scene in 2005 with his first EP release on Touche’sBodyclap imprint, he has since released on Drop the Lime's Trouble and Bass imprint,Diplo’s Mad Decent and has remixed artists including Arthur Baker and Dave Clarke, Chromeo, Midfield General, Lethal Bizzle, Mika, Hybrid and The Black Ghosts.

Genre-defying melodies, basslines with a ghetto attitude, freaky electro energy and atmospheric dark backdrops that get deep inside… The Boy 8-Bit sound is not straightforward; balancing beats and bass aimed squarely at the dancefloor with clever, intricate melodies, his productions take in a variety of influences and juxtapose contradictions – yet can still crucially make people get up and dance.

Strummerville Camp at Glastonbury

Strummerville at Glastonbury
Strummerville Camp
June 26th / 27th / 28th

Strummerville - The Joe Strummer New Music Foundation - will again be holding the biggest campfire at the Glastonbury festival this year.

The campfire will be based near the Joe Strummer memory stone in the top corner of the Arcadia field.

Performing around the campfire will be acoustic sessions from Strummerville supported ‘new talent’ artists including Dan Smith, Cheka, GoodTimes GoodTimes, Peggy Sue and The Pirates, The Lost Brothers and many more. Billy Bragg will bring his Strummerville supported Jail Guitar Doors project - an independent initiative which aims to provide instruments to those who are using music as a means of achieving the rehabilitation of prison inmates ( - to the campfire on Saturday, as Billy Bragg, Leon Walker and Johnny Neeson perform.

"It's great that Strummerville are hosting a performance by Jonny and Leon. I named my music in prisons initiative Jail Guitar Doors in memory of Joe Strummer, and the people at Strummerville have been very supportive of our work since the off. Inviting the lads to play at Glastonbury Festival is very much in keeping with the work that Joe did. The voice of ex-prisoners is rarely heard in a society that locks more people up every year and both Jonny and Leon draw on their life experiences to write powerful songs." – Billy Bragg

There will also be some very, VERY special secret acoustic performances from some Big Glastonbury acts throughout the weekend.

For Joe Strummer, the idea of a “campfire” - any loose assembly of people bonded by the rising flames and the advancing dawn - became an art form in itself. The campfire was the melting pot, the wisdom stone, the HolyGrail; the essential outdoor forum for constantly evolving ideas and conversations.

Come and share some love by the campfire.

Shit Robot 'Simple Things' (DFA)

Simple Things (Work It Out)
Catalog Number: DFA2214
Street Date: 07.14.09
Format: Vinyl + Digital

After the release of “Chasm” and “Wrong Galaxy,” Shit Robot (Marcus Lambkin) had listeners’ ears burning for more.

“Simple Things (Work It Out)” is his much-anticipated new single to be released by his good friends at DFA Records. Born in Ireland, Lambkin was instantly drawn to music, where he augmented his punk rock education of the Buzzcocks and the Dead Kennedys with nights spent wholly entranced with Acid House in the late eighties. Relocating to New York City in ‘92, Lambkin was well on his way to becoming one of the top DJs in New York City when he chanced into meeting future discopunk don James Murphy. Even after Lambkin returned to the continent, his friendship with Murphy continued to develop, evolving into Shit Robot along the way.

In the fine DFA lineage of “Losing My Edge” and “Casual Friday,” “Simple Things” upholds the tradition of DFA ‘talkies,’ coupling body-pulverizing bangers with brain-tickling diatribes. The new track is no different, as it features the steely-eyed
rant of Washington D.C. based iconoclast Ian Svenonius, who has been the voice of such bands as Nation of Ulysses, The Make Up, and Chain and the Gang. Spleening and screeching throughout about robots, singing machines, and the loss of innocence, Svenonius gets matched every step of the way by Lambkin, who shadows that singular voice with an elegant yet gritty array of synthetic genius.

When it came to the task of remixing such a totemic track, Lambkin enlisted two very different men, Serge Santiago and Todd Terje, for the task. For the UK pressing, Santiago --a British based record producer whose talent can most recently be heard on the newest Goldfrapp single-- strips everything down to the acid bassline and a telltale drum tock, pressurizing every component to the point of meltdown, before dropping in a classic piano line to stabilize everything. Originally hailing from Oslo, nu-disco edit-master Terje showcases his remix skills. His subtle yet deft touch here makes his “Simple Things” remix the lynchpin of any disco fanatic’s play list.

With a steady heart-throbbing bass line and an array of startling acidic sounds that build up the dancefloor brick by brick, Shit Robot’s “Simple Things” offers us a glimpse of a futuristic new world, one built not merely by robots, but by Shit
