The Ting Tings – Sounds from Nowheresville

I’m not good at following up on my Twitter account so I kinda missed the mysterious leak of the new Ting Tings record and didn’t buy it till yesterday.


I was a bit disappointed at first, but that’s only because I scan new records in a can-I-play-that-at-the-club-mode.

So after listening to the record for a few times I gotta admit the we-arrange-the-lp-like-a-playlist thing totally works for me and I really like the diversity of the LP.

Don’t worry though, even after a 4 year gap you can still tell it’s a Ting Tings original for every song (also you can tell that part of it has been recorded during their Berlin stay).

It appears the record company was so pleased with the first demos that they (The Ting Tings) deleted them completely and started recording completely new songs.

I guess it’s only fitting the cover has been made from fan art. Also it explains what took them 4 years to complete the new record. I kinda imagine the look of their record company’s dude at the phone when telling him like this.

Of course everybody has been waiting for Soul Killing but my secret favorite song would either be One by One (listen below) or the previously released Hands (which only is included with the Deluxe Edition, I think). The Deluxe Edition btw comes with a bunch of remixes plus additional songs. It contains 19 tracks compared to 10 which come with the standard edition.

the Great Lake Swimmers

Ever since i heard “Everythings moving so fast” i have been in love with this canadian band. in my humble opinion their greatest tune. but i have come to appreciate everything they have to offer. really enjoy their music and every now and then a band comes along where you don’t buy the music to own it, cause you legally never do – you just own the mechanical cd in your hands, but to support this band – so get it via amazon as long as we don’t have a  better system. Heck if i knew they money was going straight to them – i’d wire them 20 bucks right away just for the great music they have given me.

both tracks from their superb album: “lost channels”

Crookers – this friday @ Theaterfabrik, munich

Okay first off the popular information – This Friday Crookers are playing at Theaterfabrik in munich alongside Birdy Nam Nam, the Acid Kids and myself. That alone should be way enough to set any roof on fire, but i wanna dig a bit deeper in the subject, focus more on the Crookers, who they are, what they have done and all the things they have moved in the past 2 years.


RSVP to the event on facebook.

Musically the first part is gonna include a couple of Crookers Mashups & remixes, the 2nd one – their most prolific classics and the third one is gonna be their latest material.

Well first off they are among the biggest names there are right now(think Justice, Basement Jaxx, Boys Noize, etc). They single handedly put italy back on the map – nobody forgets the boot – but musically it has been asleep for at least 20 years. They put the cool back in the otherwise forbidden word “techno”, mixed it with crunk and let’s say “ghetto” (i know it sounds corny but euroheads know what i’m talking about). The guys are a bunch of hip hop heads that produced the kind of electronic sound that made them become the go-to-guys for rave anthems. Somehow their sound was even appealing to all the big record industry players – that all of a sudden wanted to to be produced by them (Black eyed peas etc). In general they somehow were among the first ons to start that hiphop-rave hybrid thats the new global phenomenon. They became a household name and actually famous via the blog world – among the first ones. next part tomorrow:  Their releases.

15 Pages of crookers on hype machine – that alone says it all! – and over 100.000 fans on facebook.
