Great Escape

14 May

Can’t quite believe it’s been a year since the last one.. But here is my line up for my weekend of fun. With a delegates pass none the less!

Ida Maria, The XX, Sarah McLeod, Alphabeat, Peggy Sue and the Pirates, Go! Team, Ting Ting’s
Yoav, guest talk with guy who created Hype Machine – natch, The Shoes, Bitchee Bitchee Ya Ya, Matt and Kim, Operator Please, Joe Hot Chip, Ipso Facto, Lovebox DJ’s
Tuaca Promotion (!!!), The Clik Clik, Wiley, Mystery Jets, Fujiya and Miyagi, Laura Marling, Sam Sparro, Santogold.

PHEW. What a cracking line up. I will be doing some sort of review after it all. Unfortunatly, my computer is being a spastic again so I can’t upload any music. Damn.

Does it offend you, YEAH?

I don’t really have much else for you than these:

M83 – We Own The Sky (Maps Remix)

Annie – Heartbeat (Royksopp remix)

Muse – Map of the Problematic (Does it Offend You Yeah? Remix)

The Danger remix of Sebastian Teller’s Divine is actually amazing. But I can’t link it anymore as I got asked to take it down. Search away Internet geniuses..
(I think that Van She, Danger and The Shoes should have a ‘mix-off’ as I cannot quite choose who’s stuff I like more.)

I got told to listen to ‘Rosey‘ the other day, she is a Jazz singer, and quite good actually.
Rosey – Love (Koop Remix)

Also, Joan As Policewoman is releasing a new album in June, Hoorah! This is quite old news, but alas, I forgot. I missed her last time she was in Brighton so I have already got my sights on a ticket.

Next week, I shall be giving you a nice little run down of the best people (in my humble opinion) that are playing at Great Escape in Brighton, and where they are playing too as they just released the full line up.

Funday Monday

7 Apr

Not many people can cover the White Stripes… But Nikka Costa gives it a good go:
Nikka Costa – The Denial Twist

S.P.A – Pet’s Dance (Thoughtless Hussies Remix)

Headman – Catch Me If You Can (Tronik Youth Remix)

The Mystery Jets – Hideaway (Switch Remix)

The Teenagers – No Love (Delorean Remix)

Dizzee Rascal – Sirens (Black Light Remix)

Gotan Project – Mi Confession (Edu K Drop The Bass Remix)

Is it weird that I quite like that ridiculous Beeper song….?

I am hearing rumours that Prodigy are playing the amazing 3am set at Summercase. Am also really excited about the Great Escape happening again in Brighton May 17-19Th, last year, we managed to see Adele at Red Roaster, Bonde Do Role and Scroobius Pip supporting Kate Nash at Pressure point, Nouvelle Vague at the Corn Exchange and also managed to blag our way into the (ticketed) T4 Music show that they held at the Udderbelly. Saw The Gossip, Scissor Sisters, Cold War Kids and Bat for lashes all rather sureally in a giant purple upside down cow on the Old Stein… This year, the Speigeltent is back as well, Hercules and Love Affair are rumoured to be playing one night so I know it’s going to be another good weekend in May. In the Udderbelly which is apparently going to be opposite Hectors house, there is going to be a Silent Disco which is something I’ve wanted to go to for a long time.
