Basement Jaxx – Nifty

Here’s the latest from Basement Jaxx, which has put me back in good graces with them. Wasn’t a big fan of the last two albums they released, but this track shows them getting back to true form. This is a house track with a rumbling bass synth and all the “classic” basement Jaxx sound.

David Vendetta Featuring Akram – Unidos Para La Musica

Not something I thought would mix well, but does so with surprising emotion. Haunting Arabic vocals over a deep electronica groove – who knew… The vocals carry so much pain and love they seep through the track.
The track starts off sounding rather Depeche Mode-ish, then vocals start wailing which sounds like Andy Bell (erasure fame), and then quickly turns into more of a Dead Can Dance Vibe. All the while propelling the dance rhythm further and further.
