Mentions of Mumdance and Melé are common on this here blog. Mumdances’ ‘Smasher’ from his Mum Decent Release (on no other than Mad Decent) is getting some UK attention from none other than Melé, who has outputting excellence for many a month now. Grime perfection. This sample hit Soundcloud today. Roll on the release on Mad Decent.

I have a guilty love for Death to the Throne. He has a pattern he successfully follows and churns out some sick remixes. Generally full of bubbling synths and huge house rhythms, his ‘Technologic‘ and ‘LES Artistes‘ remixes are ace. His latest offering of Metric’s Twilight Galaxy’ is no different. Great finish to track. LOVELY.
Skrillex aka Sonny Moore has been eroding corners of credibility for his intense glitch electronic offerings and successfully blurring the lines of what genre he falls into, with melodic progressions and explosive drops he hits house, electro and dubstep.
He has had two releases this year; ‘My Name is Skrillex’ was a statement release of introduction (which you can download for free here.) ‘Scary Monsters and Nice Sprites’ showed beautiful progression and managed to climb Beatport charts which is rare for dubstep tracks.

His remixes are also worthy of a mention;
I Blame Coco a.k.a Coco Summer. Daughter of Sting, actress and quite the stylista in my opinion has russled up this rather delightful track, ‘Ceasar’. Featuring Robyn, it’s a strong debut track succesfully attempting to capture the attention of the masses in preparation for the release of her debut album, ‘The Constant’.
Remixes by Miike Snow and Diplo are equally pleasing.
Shhake It Up – Diplo Vs Beatles
I Am Not Drunk – Benny Benassi (The Bloody Beetroots Remix)
In Da Club With Zombies – Gordon Freeman Vs 50 Cent
Ready For My Neck, My Back – Hot Chip // Khia (The White Panda Rework)
Rude Boy – Rihanna (Vodka & Milk Remix)
Bounce – MSTRKRFT
A Girl & A Gun – Whomp That Sucka (A1 Bassline Remix)
Anyone who is a consistent reader of this blog will be aware of my love for Marina & the Diamonds, for her voice, attitude, and how beautifully re-workable her songs are. The recent release of her debut album, ‘The Family Jewels’ threw out a whole body of new tracks that will no doubt translate to a club setting quite nicely with some work.
One track of which, ‘I Am Not A Robot’, although it’s been around for a while has just been brought to new heights by non other than Passion Pit. It’s been taken, fused with exploding synths and new keyboard melodies and is intended for a dancefloor. In it’s new skin it which would go down in beautifully in any light electro set.
This track will be on the re-release of ‘I Am Not A Robot’ which is out here on the 23rd of April in Ireland.
