Audion - Just Fucking



Audion, "Just Fucking (Roman Flugel's 23 Positions In A One-Night Stand remix)" (YSI link)

Hot Chip, "No Fit State (Audion remix)" (YSI link)

I've been meaning to talk about Matthew Dear, Ghostly International and that whole techno scene in Ann Arbor. I can't think of a better way to start than with Dear's alter ego, Audion. Audion seems to allow Dear to pursue the booty part of his mind, the more house-oriented side of things. I went with one of his best singles, "Just Fucking" to get things started and give people a taste of what to expect. Whoa Nelly, the original is fucking rager from the start. It has a bassline is like a car engine being played by Larry Levan or something, sick and twisted and unstoppable. The remix is by Roman Flugel is a more subdued affair, featuring some gorgeous keys throughout. It doesn't have that bassline, which gives it a more minimal sound to my ears. It's beautiful, well-worth the download.

You know I love me some Hot Chip and love white labels even more. Bring them together and I'mma happy boy. Here Audion takes on a track from The Warning, "No Fit State." This one's much different, a sort minimal glitch remix of the original, almost draining the heart out of the Hot Chip version. Give it a chance though, as it might not sound great at first but it will with repeated listens. Headphones are a great idea, btw.

-I'm so excited for this one, people. My bol Dimitry is celebrating his birthday tonight and he's doing it in style at his own weekly party, High Voltage. For those who've taken my advice and got their asses out to this party already, you know that this is the best midweek jawn in the city, good DJs, good crowds, the whole deal. This one's gonna be extra special with guest DJs Eli Escobar and Ultragrrrl, vodka open bar from 11-12, Dimitry completely wasted and dancing on the dancefloor. I'll be in the house, you need to be too.

-Also make sure to hit up the latest Project Matt blastoff, this time at Savalas with Turntable Lab's Egg Foo Young. I'm hoping for lots of Dirty South bangers to knock some sense into all of my fellow Williamsburg hipsters

-Summer's is almost here and that means partying outside and on rooftops and in parks. The good people of Montreal have another option the entire month of May with Patio Lanterns at Vinyl (2109 Bleury). Brought to you by the Lookout Crew, every Wednesday in the month of May you can hear Huggs and Dojo spin and start the summer of '07 off right.
