the good people over at quatre records are back with a new release. dlid (dick laurent is dead) is a member of the electroluxe family and is about to drop his 'discovision' twelve-inch on 2nd june. previous releases on quatre had huge support from major scene players like d.i.m, teenage bad girl, the bloody beetroots, missill and les petits pilous.
the title track 'discovision' is a real solid banger, not too original but perfectly fitting in with tracks by boys noize, digitalism or justice and the track also features some great aggressive female vocals on top, making it a great replacement for 'la musique' which feels a bit played out by now. so go get your latest dj set enhancement right here:
dlid (dick laurent is dead) - discovision
watch out for the upcoming release on quatre records featuring the original 'discovision' as well as a remix and another original called 'get lost!' which is one of the secret weapons in the recent dj sets of touché from the black ghosts.

jason forrest aka dj donna summer aka birthday party berlin main mastermind aka cock rock disco label owner aka pitchfork super darling is definitely one of my favorite 'friends' in the whole 'blog scene' right now and dropped an exclusive mix for xlr8r early may that you must not miss.
quoting the man himself, the mix is 'a highly edited mash of a ton of different styles from fidget and bassline to a bit of dubstep and hip-hop but all soaked in old-school rave and slapped on the ass by some bmore and baile' and chops and screws up 44 tracks in 45 minutes. see, this is what a mix should be like in 2008. head over to our friends at xlr8r and grab the mix right now:
dj donna summer - exclusive mix for xlr8r
but i wouldn't post this without a track, so my man jason hooked me up with a brand new dj donna summer track. 'big boy trux' clocks in at medium booty bass tempo (140 bpm), combining a uk-style wobble bassline with pitched down vocals, distorted new french touch synths, oldschool rave signals, a gabber kickdrum, shuffled house percussions and sharp 909 hihats. in short: a dj funk playing at a thunderdome party, broadcasted live on rinse fm. confused? that's what we were going for.
dj donna summer - big boy trux
show jason forrest and dj donna summer some myspace love, check out the birthday party berlin blog and instead of writing pointless hater comments on your favorite blog, why not try to track down his other split personalites as well - catch 'em all!

first things first: hello world. i am back. glad you missed me. (and surprised how some people come to think that discodust is 'dead' after just ten days of idling) i have gone through a bit of a crisis related to the current state of music on the blogs and came to the conclusion that a few things have to change on here and i need to try a bit harder again. although i am not sure if i will always find the time, i am planning on going more 'underground' and 'unsigned hype' again, as many of the recent entries focused too much on already established artists and sounds. no worries, i will still have those up here but there's no doubt there needs to be more surprises on here again. the first is coming up right now.
music go music managed to write a stellar pop song that is going to end up high in my all-time favorite songs list, right next to 'you are the generation that bought more shoes and you get what you deserve' by johnny boy. sporting a similar vintage vibe, music go music sound like the only true reincarnation of abba with a bit of elo thrown in.
according to on gorilla vs. bear, one of the blogs out there i respect the most, the 'gala bell' identity of the music go music lead singer is just made up and she seems to be in another band as well. as my indie music knowledge reached an all-time low ever since i started this blog, i am unfortunately unable to provide any additional hints or even solve the puzzle, but nevertheless, here you go, one of my favorite songs these days:
music go music - light of love
show music go music what discodust-fueled myspace lovin' means as even though they have been posted on majors like stereogum and have an ep coming out on secretly canadian, they are way below 500 friends. and i know that even you tough motherfuckers like some abba sometimes.
(and before any rave kids get a heart attack or something: no fear, some bangers are coming up later tonight.)

two years after their debut album 'we are not the infadels', after playing over 300 gigs from europe to china, infadels are back with a new album named 'universe in reverse', 'bursting with energy, growling guitar melodies and hooks in abundance'. the very catchy feel-good anthem 'free things for poor people' is the second single from the album which is coming up on june 23rd on wall of sound.
lucky as we are, wall of sound got some remixes for the single as well and my favorite one is done by alex metric who constantly impresses me with all of his recent work, including the remix for splittr and of course his own ep 'in your machine' on marine parade. his remix is a perfect combination of stadium indie rock track and a driving electro (yeah you hate that term by now) banger that will cause fireworks in your heads. go check it out right here in high-q, blogged first on discodust:
show infadels and alex metric some myspace love and watch out for the album 'universe in reverse'.
UPDATE: mp3s taken down because the promotion phase is over.

the post on my favorite recent 'find' from germany, overthrill, obviously had quite some impact, as they got tons of friend requests, remix offers and a request from no love lost records to contribute a mixtape to their exclusive mixtape series. and what an outstanding tape it is, featuring 82 tracks in less than an hour. lee from nllr delivered a nice write-up again, better than i could ever write anything, so here you go:
"arriving with our fifty-first exclusive mix is overthrill from germany and they've put together an absolutely gargantuan mix for us. eighty-two tracks carefully selected from across the entire dance, pop and hip hop space-time continuum. to give you some idea of just how broad a sampling of tracks overthrill have masterfully worked into their epic set, here are just a smattering of the artists featured: bangers & cash, les rythmes digitales, dizzee rascal, queen, chemical brothers, bob sinclar, madonna, westbam, propellerheads, danger, m.i.a., timbaland, the prodigy, jackson and his computer band, lady sovereign, uffie, the avalanches, sebastien tellier, pussycat dolls, rolling stones, thomas bangalter, beastie boys and obviously many, many more. overthrill clearly love indulging their every dance floor whim and who can argue with that ethos when you can pack more than eighty tracks into an hour long mix without it sounding rough or gimmicky, quite brilliant. enjoy overthrill's maximix and share the love via their myspace page!"
i highly recommend (!!!) you to check out their mix, it is simply stunning and hands down one of the best mixes i have heard in ages:
overthrill - exclusive nllr mix (on mediafire)
overthrill - exclusive nllr mix (on megaupload)
overthrill - exclusive nllr mix (on zshare)
enjoy this masterpiece of a mix, check the comments for the tracklist and go add overthrill on myspace!

finally every underground super hipster's favorite pop princess annie from bergen, norway, is back! with 'heartbeat' and 'chewing gum', she was on her best way to become the new queen of pop but it seems as if the mainstream media wasn't up for that yet.
so this year she's giving it another try and her new single 'i know ur girlfriend hates me' (yeah, i bet they all do) is going to be released in early july. we were lucky enough to get ahold of this hypnotic vintage electro disco flavoured remix by get shakes two months early. check it out right here and enjoy another premiere on discodust:
annie - i know ur girlfriend hates me (get shakes remix)
listen to the original track on annie's myspace and while you're at it, add her as a friend and tell her aleks from discodust loves her!

our good friend anoraak just sent over a new track by his band pony pony run run and it's a great change from all the grimey bangers stuff i've had in the mail lately. 'boy/girl surrender (summer edit)' is an awesome electro-flavoured powerpop summer anthem that is playing on repeat here since i got it and it will probably end up on a lot of my summer mixtapes. get addicted right here:
pony pony run run - boy/girl surrender (summer edit)
show pony pony run run some myspace love and watch out for more them on discodust real soon!

after midnight are philthy b. (former villains member) and dj farron from la. think chuck norris meets prince, as in the coolest mother-fucker meets the baddest mother-fucker. they have experience in all of la/hollywood's hottest clubs and are currently trail-blazing the rich la electro-based scene with intentions of hitting the top without ever looking back. check out their heavily banging remix of 'addiction' by the frail from sf, another premiere on discodust:
the frail - addiction (after midnight remix)
show after midnight and the frail some myspace love! (and if you've got the feeling that this entry is a bit rushed and is very similar to the official after midnight press info, you're right, but that's just because i am already late for a date and did not want to leave you hanging without this killer track! yeah, making girls mad at me 'cause i love my readers, that's me!)
