Twelve inches of snow today. My car almost got stuck in my driveway. A twenty minute commute took two hours. It's days like these I wish I could just hibernate.

Bears hibernate.

London based Bear Funk is doing anything but hibernating. 2009 is lookin' real fine for this label - and working with gems like Ilija Rudman is guaranteed gold. The Croatian's latest release mixes real bass guitar with analog heavy grooves – soo good. The Dance Disorder 12" is out now and comes with a remix from Faze Action on the flip. Cop it now and ride the Bear Funk train.

The homie Small Pyramids sent over a pumpin' refix of Claudja Barry's Sweet Dynamite. Soo crucial. SP has also been producing some original material and kindly gave me a track to share with you readers. Fans of spacey, cosmic disco rejoice! Keep an eye on Small Pyramids' myspazzzz for updates on original releases and remixes. Definitely an artist to watch.

Man, this is some good shit.

My classmates and I would immediately break into chorus " the sharee-eef don't like it " when our French teacher would even utter the word casbah. Mr. Turner was black and was all into Algeria and it's ties to French colonization and it's subsequent mix of cultures. So he was sayin' casbah all the fuckin' time! Super smart dude, but a total condescending prick.

Red hot In Flagranti take The Clash's hit* and strip it down to a dubby groover. The track is taken from the latest Sounds Superb release on Codek; and what from I can tell is a JunoDownload exclusive. What I don't know is if these tracks - all 10 amazing reworkings of dusty gems - have been released before. To my knowledge, they have not...anyone?

* Rock the Casbah was written in 1982 in response to Iran's outlawing of music, particularly disco.

Genie Italiano

Ask and you shall receive readers. One of my favorite cuts from one of last year's best compilations. The broken english is beyond amazing. Essential Italo.

Smiles for Miles...

I'd heard that Aeroplane had been playing this track to close out their DJ sets – and was like, "OK, I guess I can dig that." But a full blown remix? I listened to this like 19 times in a row when it got sent to me. Just plain brilliant.
