Gigi Barocco

A quality artist I've found is Italian wonder-boy Gigi Barocco. His wobbles, twists, and vrooms are as good as any, and I can't get enough. He just released an excellent EP on Hervé's Cheap Thrills label, and I have the title track from that EP for guys. Also threw in a few other good ones from him.

Gooseflesh - Delorean (Gigi Barocco Remix)

Gigi Barocco - Puah

Redman - I Hold The Crown (Gigi Barocco Remix)

Gigi Barocco - Think AbOOt The Way

Bonus, not at all the usual sort of thing but I like it! Wouldn't be surprised if this is a hit with the remixers

Pirate Soundsystem

Hard to pigeonhole, but this duo have a definite old-school rave vibe. They're an eclectic blend of rave, breakbeat, 2-step, grime, ragga, electro, dubstep and booming ghetto tech. (And they often mention Happy Hardcore as an influence, but we'll pretend we didn't hear that). Pirate Soundsystem are not constricted by pretensions, they just want to produce music that makes you bounce, but still manage to perfect a progressive and experimental sound. But it is all about fun: about intense build ups; chirpy basslines; heavy beats; looped samples and monumental drops. After all, their myspace tag runs as: "Do You Like cliche samples?"

The Deficient

French based producer, The Deficient (formerly known as nickY) produces heavy-based, big-sounding and overall well-produced tracks. Both Gigi Barocco’s and Stereoheroes tracks will be released on Crux records, so be sure to look out for ‘em! Keep an eye out for this fella, big things ahead for these tunes! Especially with the help of big names like Rico Tubbs giving his recognition. Loving everything he has done so far! As i'm writing this itunes very nicely randomly started playing Rowdy Jack, it's fate, unbelievably good track!!!

Gigi Barocco - Rowdy Jack (The Deficient Remix)

Dance Area - AA-247 (The Deficient Remix)

AC Slater - Hello (The Deficient Remix)

Nu Ravers On The Block (or NROTB) are from Canada and currently stand as the origin of some damn fine electro party jams. They have a new EP out titled ‘Take me Upp’ and the thing stinks of cool and just so happens to have a Designer Drugs remix tucked into the mess. Apart from the usual stand outs you have on any EP I was surprised to hear lesser known Dro & Lodzy do what I can only describe as un-organised perfection.

Sound Of Stereo

Lately, I’ve really been loving the peoples that are Sound of Stereo. The Bloody Beetroots have streamlined this harsh synthed, headbanging electronic house sound (that was a mouthful…) and have paved the way for people like Mustard Pimp. Sound of Stereo seem to take the same path and have some really killer tracks.

In an interview with Electric Zoo, they commented on their original song, Heads Up.

Because when the break kicks in, everybody is like “woooooooo” and then when we are building the track up again everybody goes like “ooooooohhhhh” and when the climax kicks in everybody goes like “yeaahhhhhhh”.

Very oddly put but at the same time, how perfect! The bloody beetroots remix is fucking amazing!I think it's better than the original, in fact it's one of my top tunes at the minute

Sound Of Stereo - Supah Dupah

Sound Of Stereo - Parrot Attack
