THE RECOMMENDER – NUMBER 7

Welcome aboard number 7…

Pounding up and down the Indie and Electro streets once more, I hold aloft for you special people yet more selected peaks from the world of good choonage. This time we got two DJ’s found blasting air horns from ‘Blog House’ heaven and one tidy European pair of dreamers. These DJ’s are very well known to the blog world already, but I simply cannot resist posting about them myself. However, the last entry may not be known to your ears. Check them all though, coz they’re ALL good…

I’ll start at the beginning. Seems the best idea…OK, first mentioned in previous post The Gig List 6 this super-fly DJ is a mash up in human form. KISSY SELL OUT – the Designer, the Fashion Icon, the Global DJ, the Radio One Talent and all round Remix-Master, grew up soaking up Nirvana, warped into a Drum n Bass freak through his formative years and came out of it all a pioneer of Indie-Electro remix super-sets. And he’s only 23 years old!! Easy on the ears, his taste for blends are as good as they get. With a massive remix back catalogue including Chromeo, Mark Ronson, R.E.M and Gwen Steffani, amongst many others, he specialises in turning the pop world into ultra-slick dance-floor filler. Truly outstanding.

Second in command in this edition, is another sublime Blog House DJ, this time from Atlanta, Georgia, USA. The electric LE CASTLE VANIA, (aka Dylan Eiland), has been busting dance floors globally. With his trademark Emo-style, white-lightning hairstyle, skinny jeans and trainers that look like they were bought in a Nike boutique in a planetary system many light years away, his array of colours only serve to add to his level of cool. Dropping super-massive beats you will see Dylan pumping fists and jumping up and down behind the decks as much as the adoring fans on the dance floor in front of him. Excitable and contagiously energetic, his banging remixes and original productions are fuzzy, chunky, pounding electro of the highest order. Tasteeeeee.

Coming in third today are a gorgeous girl/boy pairing from Zurich, Switzerland, going by the name of DIVISION KENT. They bounce out melodic electronic music with a guitar sound and a sweeping atmosphere. It’s really quite beautiful. I attach my favourite track below for you, Superstitious. They are two albums in now, with their latest work entitled ‘Gravity’, so please go and track that down if you fancy more.

Hoping to get a new Q&A completed shortly with both Kissy Sell Out and Le Castle Vania posted up real soon, so look out for those in the future. I just gotta catch them when we all get a spare minute. This blog is growing so fast I may even have to source another contributer to match the demand, so watch this space.

See you back here real soon…
Mike

    I have been dying to see Kissy Sell Out live. And I want to see The Dark Knight a second time, for sure.

    Nice write up. I have to say, tho, i dont really rate thsi Kissy remix of REM. I love the whole bmore thing thats going on, and elements of this song are awesome, but I think the soft melodic vocals just don’t quite belong in this kinda track…

    Fair play Pelski. I gotta agree, the lyrics are too soft, but the fact he even thought about slicing up this tune into something remotely danceable is definitely interesting to me. Add to that the sweet pace he often has in his remixes and the well timed breaks. He is fearless about utilising the pop world and I guess it takes balls to clash the super un-trendy with something pumping that has the blog worlds attention.
