headman + munk.


one of my favorite german labels, the munich-based gomma, decided to start a party in my inbox today and sent me blog-ready promos for two new releases by headman and munk.

in case you haven't heard of him yet, headman is one of the 'punkfunk disco' pioneers just like dfa and has remixed the likes of franz ferdinand, chromeo and the gossip. his new single 'running into time' is a catchy rock tune featuring new-wave rapper don cash from toronto on the mic and coming with remixes from lele aka parra and kitsuné newcomers autokratz as well as an additional original tune. check half the release here:

headman - running into time
headman - running into time (lele remix)

label owners munk (also known as 'the german dfa') decided to re-release three of their favorite remixes by digitalism, passarani and zongamin. those got a re-press on gomma as so many people asked for them and they're still sounding so damn fresh in 2008, even though they were produced back in 2004. and yeah, i know, you have seen this on hundreds of blogs back in the days but let's just listen to this and take a few minutes off to remember a time when everyone out there was wondering who the fuck 'those digitalism guys' are:

munk - disco clown (digitalism remix)

both releases are out now, so go buy them at your favorite store or just head over to beatport and let gomma have their well-deserved money.

anonymous: well, most 'bangers' are just boring to me these days. but there are dozens of blogs that still post them daily, have a look around.

and to calm you down: a post about 'designer drugs' is already planned.

I remember when i would hear millions of explosions on Discodust, me and my friend would always say this was the best blong and you are still posting good shit but you would always have the biggest explosions....


please go back to finding the obscure amazing distorted earth shattering dope boom boom boom zonders on acid while painting a picture of hitler and then please post post post i want BANGERS

aleks discodust said...

meh.

this bitching gets really annoying. everything 'banging' i have heard recently is either just boring me to death or there is no chance i can get a permission to post the tracks.

too bad i never heard from you when you guys were still enjoying the selections.

guns n bombs, villains and kill the noize have been all over other blogs already, why'd you want me to blog about them yet again when there's nothing new to post? this makes no sense and like i said, i hit up designer drugs for exclusive tracks but haven't heard anything from them yet. (but i am still hoping it will work out, as they are really good.)

there were banging tunes by kazyo, whitenoise, hot pink delorean, the bloody beetroots, huoratron and lies in disguise on here just recently and i am still looking for bangers. feel free to point me to unreleased tracks and convince me that the 'banger scene' is not totally overcrowded by bedroom producers stealing justice' drums and pumping up the distortion. and for a lot of the artists featured before/mentioned above it is now the time to finally get some money, so don't expect all of their tracks/remixes leaking on blogs.

whatever. don't blame me. and if you're not into the tracks i am posting, go somewhere else.

@ aleks ::

hell yes. noone needs to hear another FM synth sample shoved through the same 2 distortion plugins with badly produced excuses for kicks and low end. i didn't even know there was a 'bangers' genre, but now that i hear it described that way, it makes perfect sense. what once seemed like a good second-coming of dirty electro is turning into a self-parody real quick, fodder for a scene to bolster itself up as creating something new.

keep posting whatever you want. it's fantastic. and the blog looks real purdy, too.

We <3 u Aleks. U are still the best blog. Thats why we give you our shit first. To anyone who wants bangers, we (Hot Pink DeLorean) have some exclusive bangers and a mix that we will break here on Discodust in the not so distant future (so long as Aleks lets us).

HATERS CAN FUCK OFF

Falco said...

The one thing that hasn't been mentioned yet is the point of electronic explosive bangers. Like I know everybody likes the disco shit but I wish this blog knew about WWIII.

For the real shit, go to faketattoos.blogspot.com !

aleks discodust said...

falco: like half of the tracks and artists on the first page of your blog have been featured on here before. you're doing a great job copying me, calling your site 'the real shit' and coming here to bitch about my selection afterwards! no, hold, it is just pathetic!

and as far as bangers go, fasten your seatbelts right now and stay tuned for tonights posts.
