Today, San Francisco's Honey Soundsystem & Berlin's CockTail d'Amore released stereogamus' riiiiiidiculously good debut single, Face Love Anew, and on limited vinyl to boot! Stereogamus' production game is tight & the remixes are both excellent, but Shaun J. Wright's vocals really push it over the edge. You might recognize Shaun as a vocalist for Hercules And Love Affair. Like on the Hercules tracks, he delivers a huge, soulful performance. I rarely say this, but don't sleep - this is going to be huge!
Order the 12" from Dark Entries Records or grab the digital release (with additional remixes from Kim Ann Foxman, Horse Meat Disco, Miracles Club & The Carry Nation) on December 11 from any of the usual outlets.
This Synthetigers are back with another burner, and it's one of my personal favorites to date. For edit #17, they reworked Philadelphia's David Simmons, adding a dope intro and extending all the right parts.
The League Unlimited Orchestra was a Human League side project, featuring dubby, instrumental versions of Human League songs. This is DJ D's extended, extra dubby edit of Do or Die, from his 2008 edits 12".

The Synthetigers just unleashed their new EP, Don't You Want?, onto the world. It's a diverse release, with deep & techy tracks as well as filtered disco. Pick up a copy of Don't You Want? from Juno Download.
Jerry Weber, owner of Pittsburgh's Jerry's Records, just found a Robert Johnson 78 that came through his shop. "The holy grail of 78s." I used to go to Jerry's almost every day on my walk home from high school just down the street. One of the greatest all-vinyl stores in the world. Fairly priced, well curated and just all-in-all awesome. Visit if you ever get a chance.
I'm A Cliche recently launched their Edit Service series on Soundcloud, where they give away a new edit every two weeks. Their newest offering, Edit Service 4, is my favorite to date. Red Axes brilliantly reworks punk poet John Cooper Clarke, transforming I Don't Want To Be Nice into a more rhythmically driven jam. Grab a free download from their Soundcloud page:
I found this gem today in the Dollar Bin Jams Soundcloud Group. You know I love Junior Byron, and this is one of my favorites! A Digital Needle stayed true to form with this tasteful, extended edit. Grab a free download from their Soundcloud...
