Dances With White Girls- Jiggle Dat

THUG HOUSE. It is a movement. NYC's Frog, who DJs and produces under the name Dances With White Girls, is quite the personality. He got signed by The Rapture's label Throne of Blood a few years ago, and has been steadily releasing a slew of bass-heavy hits for the past little while. His sound is like Armand Van Helden in the mid-nineties and Biggie conceiving a child on the dancefloor of a sweaty warehouse rave. Swagger, jacking beats, a deep groove, and lyrics that peel panties. Get with it.

Momma's Boy- Wedouwedou (Kid Kaio remix)

Rotterdam's Kid Kaio does not fit into (at least in my opinion), the wave of dutch house that has been sweeping dance music off its feet. That's not to say that he's not talented, I just think that his bleepy seizure-house has more potential than most of Afrojack's bastard spawn. This is a bloody monster of a track, demonstrating that beepy rave stabs can double as percussion, if you're creative enough. This remix was for Sound Pellegrino, which we've talked about often enough. The future!

Mr Oizo- Positif (Manege 88 remix)

For all of our french readers out there, this will definitely get a chuckle out of you. Manege 88, a talented young duo of electro producers out of France, turn Mr Oizo's classic on its ass. "Vous etes des enculés" literally translates as "you take it in the ass". Juvenile humour? Sure. Migraine-inducing, chopped up electro? Check. Awesome, fresh and hilarious take on an already trippy song? Fuck yeah. Continuez comme ca, Manège 88.

Le Matos- How do I let you know (feat. Coeur de Pirate)

Coeur de Pirate, for those not in the know, is an indie-folk phenomenon in Quebec (and I, the most enormous fanboy). This song, in which she teams up with Montreal producers Le Matos, is completely different from her usual output. The reaction to their remix of her song Comme Des Enfants probably led to this track, and I'm definitely not mad at it. Synth-heavy pop ballads that feature a beautiful girl with an awesome voice on the track are favorites, I must admit. Either way, hearing this francophone girl singing in english makes me weak at the knees.

Enjoy, and see you tomorrow.




    The night at Velvet will be on another level. I don't think they're ready. By they I mean the new management. I hope dances will play some Paramore and the Skeetskeet remix of SHOTS.
