when people hear valerie, they tend to think of college and anoraak right away, followed by russ chimes, the outrunners and of course minitel rose. but hardly anyone remembers maethelvin, although he dropped a whole lot of based tunes last year.

tonight we're going to change this. after laying low for a while, maethelvin returns with an all-new track, definitely my favorite work from him. he abandoned his trademark kavinsky-esque fm synthesizer sound and hits us with a dreamy french house track bringing back the memories of kris menace and lifelike when i first found out about them 'back in the days'. definitely being one of my favorite tracks of the year so far, the name suits it well: 'delight'. enjoy another discodust first!

maethelvin - delight (demo)

i am sure there is lots more to come from maethelvin now that he has found his new sound and i'll definitely try my best and keep you posted. add him on myspace and let him know how good this is!

Wow! I've heard some good Maethelvin before, but WOW!!!

Compared to other more similar talents, Maethelvin doesn't do it for me. That track has a very generic taste to it. That whole disco 80s sound is becoming a tad repetitive and i hope they don't get stuck on it! I really want to see it continue to evolve. Also maethelvin is a horrible name! sorry to be so negative but sometimes it's needed.

is it needed? i don't think so.

Anonymous is an awefull name ...

but it's sadly a litle right, I'm not blaming the Valerie crew because they do the right thing and they are realy into the 80's sound, they respect that.
But all the copycat, sampled/cracked/track with bad sound made with ableton and in a such cold way are pissing me off, I'm tired of that dusty sound!!!

thanks discodust to know where they are and to do not even post them !!!!

youre really not in the right place to talk about that? who cares about evolution in this kind of genres? it havent been moving forward for a very long time, everyone uses the same influences.

yo aleks i've noticed something about you from the comments you leave on your own posts....youre a condescending prick. if someone wants to voice their opinion about a song and give it constructive criticism, who the fuck are you to respond with arrogant, sometimes sarcastic responses, totally putting them down? get off your high-horse and learn that other people are entitled to their opinions and not just yourself. i like your blog, but i don't respect all.

aleks said...

anonymous: there's nothing wrong with constructive criticism, as you can see when you check the comments for this post.

what i don't like and either delete or 'put down' is when people just leave random 'lol h8 thiz, i want more disco/more bangerz/more whatever' bullshit. that doesn't help anybody. it's a waste of time. for all of us.

and if you like the blog, that's good enough for me - as i am not after respect from random guys out there.

That's funny because I've just noticed another thing on Discodust.

We allways are witness of fightings and hater comments on the several best post here.
never on the less popular ones.

that's funny, and that's why I love come back on this blog quite everydays, aside for the great music.

Maybe Aleks should create a forum with topics like "who's hating me" or "who wants to take my place".

So the real music geek and the passioned will be relieved of that poison.

when I don't like somethings, I keep it to myself, that's nasty for the posted artists, and in 99% never objective.

I am charmed with your blog, the design, the organization and overcoat the content.
Simply I believe that everything is brilliant what doing these.
Because of it me like to ask for permission you to put a link in my blog in order that the people could see yours.

Pass for my blog, it is not so well like yours but I do not also have a lot of experience (for 2 months I do it)
If you are interested in knowing since I have found out about your blog say it to you ... it was lowering Internet topics, concretly topics of redial and in the topic permission the name of your blog like that that I have spent to me to seeing it.

He excuses for the English but I am Spanish.
Regards from Spain.

What a fine day! Let’s talk about UGG Boots’ history today.

From Australia's Official Dictionary: The Macquarie Concise Dictionary - ugg boots / Australian 100% merino sheepskin lined boot. Also called ugh boot , ugg boot.

Did you know that Australian Sheepskin Ugg boots have always been called Ug, Ugh or Ugg boots and have been made in Australia for almost 200 years? "We always called them Uggs, Smith says, "long before it was a trademarked brand." Brian Smith, Founder UGG Holdings, Inc. Los Angeles Magazine October 1st, 2001

The Ugg Boots Story

The original Ug Boot. "Ug," (also spelled "Ugg" and "Ugh" in Australian dictionaries) is not a brand name but an age old generic term for this style of Australian-made sheepskin boot. In Aussie slang, the Ug name is short for "ugly." In terms of comfort, however, the Ug Boot is a thing of beauty. The softness of the Australian Merino sheepskin produces a boot with a snug, cozy, form-fitting feel that’s more like a sock than a shoe, yet it’s rugged enough for outdoor wear. The fleece lining has the astonishing property of providing year-round comfort. In cold weather, the plush fleece provides an insulating layer of warmth by trapping your body heat, much like goose down does. But in the heat of summer, the natural fibers of the fleece actually cool your feet by wicking away perspiration.

Growing Up in Uggs

By the 1970s, in Perth, the largest city on Australia’s West Coast, Ugg boots were being manufactured by several small companies in the area. Perth has much the same climate as Southern California and is also a haven for surfers, whom Aussies call "surfies." And it was the community of surfies at the great surfing beaches at Margaret River near Perth who first adopted Ugg Boots as their footwear of choice and made them a symbol of the Aussie surfing lifestyle.

Ug Fever Spreads

From the beaches of Western Australia, Ugs were soon seen on the feet of East Coast surfers from Brisbane to Sydney. And it wasn’t long before some of these surfers -- the ones who traded their surfboards for skis in the winter -- found that their Ugg Boots were just as at home in the ski resort areas of the Snowy Mountains as they were on the warm sands of Sydney’s Bondi Beach.

It was Aussie surfers, traveling the world in search of the perfect wave, who first introduced their mates in Southern California to the pleasures of the Ug Boot. Ugs soon became a cult fashion among those L.A. surfers who could depend on a buddy ‘down under" to send them a pair of boots.

Ug Essentials

Today the Ug "secret" is out. You’ll find these versatile ugg boots to be in fashion on beaches from San Diego to Santa Cruz and in ski resorts from Tahoe to Vail. And today, you don’t have to "know someone" in Australia who will send you a pair, since there are now a number of companies importing boots of this type. But, if you want the genuine article, you do have to know what you’re looking for because, no matter how they spell it -- Ug, Ugg or Ugh -- there are several importers with look-alike products that fall short of being the real thing.

If you want genuine Ugg Boots -- well-made boots with all the qualities that made the original so desirable -- you’ll want to make sure that.....

The boots are made from 100% Australian Merino Sheepskin. This will ensure your purchase is made of the finest Sheepskin hide avaliable.

Please Note:

Beware of very cheap imitations... quite a few boots on the market are made of cow suede with sawn on sheepskin inner fleece off cuts.... Don't take the chance and purchase these boots.... the external cow suede does not breath like 100% sheepskin does and will leave you with a smelly sweaty boot... But I must say these boots do look like the real thing but just don't cut the mustard when compared to authentic ugg boots
What do you think after you reading this UGG Boots history? Just hope you’d like it, see you next time!
