woah, omg i cant believe it, thats incredible. how can they afford that along with all these other artists? i thought they were playing at the unibar that night.

i wonder if our servers can handle that shit.

thanks to NightClubMania

Doobie Brothers - What a Fool Believes

One of my all time tracks
The Vid is Sick

Liberteen Ranch 31 October 2k8 Helloween Party

This is gonna be big

Miami Horror
Fait Accompli
Teen Heat
Jesse and Burns
Blake and Pete
and tsk tsk

A cracker lineup for this ranch

Gameboy/gamegirl will be an almost religious experience. their mind boggling electro/punk/street/club/ghetto/hip hop beats cant get old, and these guys know how to party. tranterco is a mental and is the world's most electric and handsome frontman

I never really liked miami horror, mainly coz every time i saw spook play live he would play everyone of their remixes and i just got over them. i never thought producers could remix so many tracks. then i listened to the the sweat it out mixtape, in which ajax mixed disc 1 and miami horror the second. opening with a breakbot original i was instantly won over, chuck in a oizo remix and i was ready to propose. this dj set should not be missed

Fait Accompli i have never heard of before. this is off their myspace

"Established underground band Fait Accompli, a hard working three piece from Darlinghurst, Sydney, Australia was born from a love of the night life and music between friends. Fait Accompli emerged as one of the new bands to watch from within the new band scene which was about to erupt in Sydney in late 2006/2007.

Creating their own original style of Progressive Rock n' Roll Fait Accompli craft songs hard enough to upset the weak and gentle enough to bring an angry man to tears, but all round their music is full of colourful ideas which combine different styles with ease making their music not only accessible but stylistically difficult to pin down. With the drummer on main vocal duties makes them a rare breed. Fait Accompli have enjoyed their short time together, self releasing their debut EP which received healthy airplay on Sydney’s FBI Radio and playing shows up and down the East Coast to rave reviews."

i just listened to a few of their tracks on myspace, they fuckin rock, really awesome shit
anklepants is friends with toecutter and rainbow ejaculation, so you don't ever know what to expect from this crazy kid

teen heat, also new to me, are taking the stage. they seem to mix with the calling in sick and trashbags crew. so i guess you can make your own mind up about the sound. they got some pretty sick remixes on their myspace

Jesse and Burns, and Blake and Pete - not exactly sure who they all is, but jesse and burns but on tight dj sets, and burns did a set a couple of ranches ago that was fuckin sick. worth seeing.

i leave the best till last tsk tsk, soon to be somehow supporting the alan braxe of stardust (music sounds better with you) tsk tsk, do what they do week to week at ofo. i have never seen them both together live, but spook mixes tight commercial house week in week out, making the girls cream and boys bounce (or is it the other way around). spook has blocked me from accessing his pics on facebook (lol, i have no idea why?), and ben has deleted his myspace account from his emo/hardcore/punk past so i will leave you with this

ps, as u may notice there are no tracks in this post, the dmca are breaking our balls. but there will be more tracks on tradehooks. just remixes. ghey

The Get Busy Crew... wow

no. thats not absentees latest lady friend, it's the 11yo MC Milly D from Sydney's Get Busy crew. Is it cool for an 11yo to bust lines like 'damn girl i could go all night' or 'every time i bust a line, it should be a goddam crime'. Me thinks yes. The Beats are produced by her 18yo brother Digsey, reminiscent of a younger and cleaner mouthed Amanda Blank. 

Does it get any more gangster than 'no rapping till your homework is done'?

Listen to their beats on MYSPACE

props to pedestrian for the headsup. word.

Buy Rombo!

The second track i'm sharing is a smash off Oizo's cutest album, Lambs Anger. 'Hun' has one of the greatest beats i have heard from Dr. Oizo, i can't wait to get my hands on the whole album :)

Buy it people!

Starfucker, My new Summer Day Album?

These guys snuck up on me and bit me right on the balls, right on them

i can't remember where i got their first lot of stuff but it is amazing.

a mixture of synth electronica, over cruisy rocky acoustic guitars, with sweet drums, and songs you think you've heard before

im finding it really hard to explain it

so just listen to these tracks

ive been thinking today, its like a cross between MGMT, the Vines, Vampire Weekend and the Thrills

the E.L.F invites you to enter the Rave Cave

Maybe the gem of all the performances at Parklife Sydney, the E.L.F. blew our minds.
Daz of the E.L.F was once a member of one of Australia's favourite indie bands, Gerling, and this new direction rocks. not taking anything away from gerling. (death to the apple girls goes down as one of my fave all time tracks, and dust me selecta contains one of my aliases)

Anyway, we love the E.L.F's track Rave Cave and here it is for your enjoyment

The E.L.F - RAVE CAVE (highest recommendation)

For the full 320kbps version go here itunes (direct link to E.L.F)

the E.L.F E.p SUNRAY IN THE RAVE CAVE is out now on OAKS RECORDS label, all available here itunes

nb the E.L.F has been hanging out with Steve Slingeneyer from Soulwax who did did a remix for him as ONEMANPARTY..its on the new E.p

also, the E.L.F. got hella wasted at parklife and dropped his laptop in Moore Park Lake, that can't be good

  • Ladyhawke
  • Yelle
  • N.E.R.D.
