Excuses Excuses

     I’m not going to bore you with the elaborate reasons why there was no post last week. Instead, let’s dive right in to this week’s tracks. Time constraints, bla bla bla, short post.

     New track from Sir Bob Cornelius Rifo, teaming up with vocalist Greta Svabo Bech to give life to some great electro house. Notice how big a contrast the chorus makes with the rest of the song, giving listeners the chance to rest in between fierce head-bobbing and roof-raising arm movements.

Released on Ultra Records on October 22nd

     Chris Malinchak brings forth a soothing and catchy tune on French Express. Synths are great, vocals are fantastic (love the background work) and the melody is simply blissful, resulting in an track worth the free download.

     Played during TATW 447, then chosen as the web vote winner for 448, Vintage & Morelli’s bootleg of “Ashes” by Above & Beyond’s Oceanlab project is a clear favorite among trance fans. Fitting the original with some extra percussions and a stealthy bassline, he brings an oldie up to 2012 speed.

     Last offering this week comes in the form of a mix from David La Melza, a.k.a. Tropicool. Somewhat similar to the Zimmer Summer Tape from a few weeks ago, Tropicool’s Dopamine Dreams is a chilled out, disco-infused hour of funky beats perfect for an afternoon of hammock lounging. Transitions can sometimes sound weird, but this is still worth a listen.

     Quick events update, legend Danny Tenaglia is at Stereo and Max Vageli & AN21 and Junior Sanchez are at New City Gas on Saturday night. Dennis Ferrer comes to Muzique on Tuesday (pay at the door) while Birdy Nam Nam and Kill the Noise take the Telus Theater on Thursday. Friday the 16th is Cosmic Gate night at Circus and the following evening is Victor Calderone’s at Stereo and Sky Blu and Sidney Samson’s at New CIty Gas.
     Last, but certainly not least, here's a video to get you through that treacherous last weekday and start your weekend off on the right foot. This week, the clever clip from Duck Sauce’s follow-up to Barbara Streisand, “Big Bad Wolf.”

     I can’t even begin to imagine how awkward it must’ve been to film this.
