Swiss producer Wildlife! recently dropped his debut album “Roxy Reboot” which highlights the cross pollination of punk rock and reggae, he created electronic versions of reggae classics featuring the original veterans of London’s late 70’s punk scene, and punk covers by current Jamaican dancehall acts. The remix companion “Roxy Reboot Remixed” is released this week via PHREE Music. We have the remix from Munich bass bulldozers Schlachthofbronx of the classic track “Should I Stay Or Should I Go” with vocals from Natalie Storm.

PS: Schlachthofbronx will turning Be Right Bass at Babel in Malmö to one sweaty dance party on saturday May 25th, those of you around should get down.

Our Italian friend Marcello Giordani should without a shadow of a doubt be proclaimed to be the disco king in Italy, his latest mix is filled with dirty disco sounds or as he puts it: “I personally suggest to fuck listening this mixtape. Works fine.”
Earlier this month, California space disco wizards Classixx unveiled their breathtaking debut full-length, Hanging Gardens. The slow trickle of remixes and singles the duo released prior to that had already established their penchant for silky-smooth retrofuturistic production, but few could have predicted the groundbreaking tour de force the album turned out to be. One of our favorite releases of the year, it somehow condenses the blissful expansiveness of Balearica into tight hook-driven dance music. With Daft Punk-esque savvy, its exotic, diverse soundscapes renew timeworn dance cliches without ever devolving into kitsch, always adding a new twist and pushing the production into funky new territory.
Today, Fresh on the heals of Hanging Gardens, Classixx have already dropped a new single that’s at least as good as anything on the album. “Valley Vacation” is a gorgeous, slow-building future-disco trip, guided by shimmering reflecting pool synths, constantly evolving bass rhythms and even a pinch of delightfully wanky pop saxophone.
Hanging Gardens is out now on Innovative Leisure.

Bohren und der Club of Gore Mix
I did this before the Bohren gig in Istanbul a few weeks ago, but failed to put it online on time. Maximum black dark doom jazz noir for your Sunday night smokesessions.

“Woke up early today, pulled out some old records and hit record. Nothing fancy or anything, just a one take all vinyl mix like we used to do back in the days!”
A while ago I was asked to put a selection of tunes together for the Hell Yeah! podcast. I was keen to oblige but I’m not really a DJ and despite owning decks I’ve never learned to beat-match. The brief was pretty wide – “something we can listen to in the afternoon, 1 hour” was all the guidance I had – but still enough to worry me as (regular readers here will know) I don’t really do laid-back so much, and while I’m happy to listen to banging jungle and hardcore all afternoon I know it’s not everyone’s cup of tea for that time of day.
So I gave it some thought and came up with a set of some of my favourite records that you don’t hear in mixes nearly enough and that I thought would go together tolerably well with my ham-fisted blending from one to the next. It’s really a very mixed bag, with ambient house, acid, techno, dub, jungle and more, starting off mellow and nice, building up to a pretty dark section in the middle and then ending up happier again. The DJ skills are non-existent but I stand by the tunes – each one is great in its own right, you can decide for yourself if they should ever have been put in a mix together!
You can read more and find the tracklist over at the Hell Yeah blog.
And while you’re there check out Hell Yeah’s output – you can listen to everything on the site and pretty much everything on the label is a winner. I’d recommend starting with stuff by Luminodisco, Crimea X and the Balearic Gabba Soundsystem edits. Support them with a purchase or two if you can, they’re an independent label trying to make a living putting out great music.
Also highly recommended are the Balearic Gabba Soundsystem mixes that you can find in various places on Soundcloud – check the links below for a couple and have a search for more if you like them – you won’t be disappointed!
