Vandroid

Head on over to the Vandroid website and have a gander at what's going on there. Allegedly the project centres round an old film that was never completed due to a fire and now some "recordings" from the "soundtrack" have recently been "found"and reworked into some awesome tunes. The latter part is most definitely true but I'm not sure if they're pulling our legs on the whole back story and I can't be doing with googling around the web to find out. Either way, go and have a look because they've got some really sharp visuals and an awesome set of remixes that you can download high quality versions of.

Insania!

Click here to the see the bloody future! Basically these guys have filmed stuff using a panoramic camera so that you can choose where you look whilst watching the movie! This technology has already been put to extremely good use HERE where you can watch the intro to one of Muse's concerts and HERE where you can watch a 360 video of a helicopter flying over Nimmo Bay.



















Great little house groover from those Crazy P's

Some Tuuuunes

Chromeo - Hot Mess (Oliver Remix) - Heard this the other week and it's got to be one of the most complete sounding remixes I've heard in a while.  Much like the Aeroplane remix of Chromeo's 'Don't Turn The Lights On' it is a total reworking of the original but the overall style will appeal to fans of Chromeo, what with the grand stabbing synth/guitar chords and general 80's-ness. The video for the original is also worth a look, if only to see P-Thug with his top off.



Bjorn Torske - Sexy Disco - Very repetitive but I've been listening to it over and over for the last half hour so thought I should share it.

Heeeeey Tell

Saw this over on Gizmodo and it looks great. Imagine using you're iPhone/Android like a walkie talkie. Sounds good to me, though time will tell if people take to the App/whether it becomes annoying as hell.

A cheeky lil' track that (dare I say it?) is an absolute banger!

SoundCloud App

Just updated my computer and Apple decided to plonk it's new App Store down on me dock so I thought I'd give it a spin. Stumbled across the new SoundCloud App.

Right now I'm in the process of getting together a series of finished tracks to put on the net and the new app more than facilitates me doing this. I can upload tracks with the program, add artwork etc. just like in iTunes, but one of the coolest features is the recording function. If I want to post up a work in progress chunk of a track I can just play the tune and use the SoundCloud app to record the part I want. It means that I don't have to worry about mastering or anything, just shove it on the web a-sap. Obviously when the track is finished I'm gonna while away hours making sure it's absolutely bloody perfect.

Another great feature is that you can grab all those tracks and mixes from other artists that you've been listening to and group them all in one place so you can listen to them offline like Spotify/iTunes. Which means I can listen to this beauty over and over again!





So yeah, check it out

Old and New Favourites

A NEW HOME! Stumbled upon this flavors.me shindiggedy and thought I'd chuck everything in one place and start keeping it up to date again! I've got about 10 semi-finished reviews from back when the blog was churning along so I'll finish those at some point and get them up. But in the meantime the format is going to be loads of lil' tidbits and the occasional essay. 

So here's a new a favourite: 

Gorillaz' Empire Ants get's remixed by Miami Horror - sheesh, the best song from Plastic Beach being remixed by one of my favourite new bands! 

The song was never really going to be made any better, but this is an awesomely chilled summery take on it. Crying shame that it's January really.
