Holidays anyone? We are, from the coast of south Sardinia, here is something to cheer you up while you are enjoying that cocktail on the beach: a bunch of fresh producers, half hour of awesome music and a surprise!
Back to Digital Riot… These two guys are quite something! Personally I fell in love with their latest effort “Dawnse” out these days on Southern Fried Records… and the music speaks for itself. For their release on aLLriGhT ReCorDs, two hot original tracks “Jack your Body” a bass groovy ride, for indie electro lovers, and “I need U” with that house effect and a clear 80’s revival influence, good stuff!
Finally, tonight there is going to be an “EP release party” in Athens(Greece). I know it’s a bit of a long shot for most of you, but for those who are from that area, or if you need to chill after that climb from the Agora‘ to the Parthenon, or if you are just there enjoying what one of the oldest cities in the world has to offer, well you are in for a treat! Join Digital Riot and friends for the “Jack Your Body E.P. Release Party @ CAMP” (click on link for details) for a magic summer night with lots of guest and what a better delight then listening to Jack your Body played by Digital Riot themselves! As far as I’m concerned I won’t be attending but I’ll be raising a glass for them tonight from the other end of the Mediterranean sea wishing them success.
This time I want to give you guys a quite detailed inside on how this track came to life and we approached it.
Mike started this track a while ago and when I listened to it for the first time I thought: What?! but then I listened again and again, listened and listened. I remember it becoming a nuisance, I couldn’t get ride of the hook! It was there doing my head in all day, going on a loop, what what what listen listen. What the fuck!!
I took the challenge mainly to exorcise my possession and approached the project using only my left hand for obvious reasons. I clicked randomly with the cursor on the project moving the mouse from left to right, up and down in no particular order. I clearly remember listening to the Sesame Street theme while doing it, which probably played a big part on my inspiration. Then I rearranged the song parts in shape of a teddy bear holding a machine gun. Done! the track was finished, AND WHAT A BANGER!!! For the drum parts we used an empty Special K cardboard box and some old cutlery. Rest of the sounds usual stuff, flutes, xylophones, marimbas with my personal favorite, washing machine on gentle spin program!
The remixes appearing on the release take the track to very different grounds, Phunx converting it into a techno-thumping beat (great I love it), Defreek exploring the future, pushing the limiter to the max (phaattt version man!) and Musique That We Love, Ft.Fuorigiri guys it’all about Dirty Dutch! Great remix!
Coming up on aLLriGhT ReCorDs: Greek duo Digital Riot. The EP is called “Jack Your Body” and will include along with the originals remixes by aLLriGhT, Dablpee and 3dot, expect something completely different! Say no more!!next time folks!
Feeling a bit shit because the bike has let me down once again i find myself
Not a good day when your bike let you down in the middle of a sunny ride, so stuck home trying to repair the motherfucker i was checking out some new tracks and previews from friends and thought i might share them to you since they’re well worth.

Check the informant’s soundcloud page for all the other tracks and get more infos about it here and moreover be sure to chek Afrodite‘s page too!
Of the three “runaway outlaws” we managed to catch one, Gobs, and had him interrogated.
aR-Yoooo Gobs how are you today? …Not that good I guess, since last time I checked you were dead!……
G-It’s great being dead. Aside from the constant overwhelming hunger for brains, I’ve never felt better. You should try it.
aR-How did you first become a zombie and how does it feel to be one?
G-I was in a horrible car accident, and I woke up Dead. Memories of what happened that night are fuzzy. I’ve never been able to piece it together. Since then , I’ve made the most of the situation. I think I’m doing pretty well for a dead guy. Hmmm?
aR-How did the collaboration between Mike Dextro, Proper Villians and you come together? I understand they are not that much into this style of music.
G-We all love the tune. We wouldn’t have finished it if that wasn’t the case. It’s just quite different for all of us. I’ve been focusing on Moombah sounds, PV is all about Dubstep right now, and Mike D has been busy working on his Baryshnikov project. Originally, I laid down the percussion, and vocals, but I wanted help with the synths, so I passed it to Proper Villains. He came up with that killer main hook, and then passed it to Mike Dextro to finish the tune.
aR-Tell me about you, what is your background and what are your influences?
G-Well, I’ll always be a raver at heart. I started out as a Gabber DJ, but became quite well known, in North America, as a Rave MC, so that became my main focus. I’ve always had a lot of love for anything with heavy bass, and I’m always interested in cutting edge music. After I died, I began focusing on producing and DJing. I’ve been living dead, now, for 5 years, and while my body has become increasingly more rotten, my producing continually gets better and better, as I learn more. This year, I’m planning to keep pushing Moombahcore, while also experimenting with Juke, Drumstep, and Electro resulting in my own unique sound that incorporates elements from my old Gabber roots.
aR-What was the first ever record that you bought and when did you start djing?
G-Shit, you’re gonna age me with this question. Ha! I’ve been sort of DJing since I was 12, but I started collecting vinyl in ’97. I honestly don’t remember what my first one was, but I’m proud to say that I have one of the best 90s record collections ever!
aR-What do you look for in a beat? …and in a brain?
G-I like my beats the way I like my brains: BIG & JUICY!
aR-How would you describe your sound?
aR-Here is a techy one, what gear are you using? Are you an hardware type or you prefer plug-ins?
G-Let’s get dorky! As far as DJing goes, I like pioneer products (CDJs and mixer). If I’m playing a club gig, I’ll often use Serato. On the producing side, I’m completely software based. I engineer with Ableton. Since people ask me all the time, I should also mention that my visuals are put together in Final Cut Pro. Also, Apple products all the way. No PCs!
aR-What music is playing while: a. You’re eating someone’s brain

Coming out with the release we crafted a video for the track “Knowhat A mean” using some footage from an old cop movie classic directed by William Friedkin “The French Connection”
in the movie (shoot in Brooklyn, Gobs will be pleased) there are many continuity mistakes as you can see on this page I found “The French Connection mistakes” what we tried to do in the editing is, revisit the part of the car chase trying to correct some of those mistakes, how is that for a challenge, see what we have come up with
I’m using the famous Caius Julius Cesar quote as the dice has really been cast and we are proud to announce the launch of “aLLriGhT ReCorDs” , the label is now up and running and we expect the first release out on March 1st 2012.
Mike talked you through the work in his previous post so all I have to say is that … IS BANGING! Coming out with the release we are crafting a video for the track “knowhat A mean”, which we’ll make public on the day of the release.
During the past months the label kept us very busy but we still had time to put together a dj set and you can listen/download it on the link below
February 24th 2012. The location is still our east base The Russian Bar and this time we have two new guests behind the mixer, electro house specialist Miky_B and warm up by Horse from “Down Under”. I’ve listened to their sets and found them very refreshing, just the right tone that’s fits with the label standards …. and yes we’ll be closing the night as usual with a nice selection, including exclusive material soon to be released on aLLriGhT ReCorDs.
