John Tejada – The End Of It All

I absolutely love this song —   This is like an ice cold beer [think Belgium Beer] on a hot day, always fresh and relaxing.

John Tejada – The End Of It All

bio from last.fm

Los Angeles DJ and producer Tejada has been releasing minimal techno since the early ’90s, often finding himself lumped alongside Detroit techno maverick Matthew Dear. These days, expanding on his formidable resume, Tejada creates ethereal electronic jangle and harmonies (think Depeche Mode dream pop and the classic songwriting of Johnny Marr) that complement each other and offer a good reason for living.

California-based John Tejada is easily one of the most productive DJ/producers in modern dance music. While most of his colleagues work on establishing a signature sound within one specific genre, John Tejada works in all genres simultaneously. Whether house, techno, electronica or drum & bass, every scene gets something from this multitalent, and Tejada manages to move within each field as if it were his own. Recently he surprised everyone by revealing yet another facet to his already impressive ability: he released an album on the Berlin label City Centre Offices with Japanese guitarist Takeshi Nishimoto, under the project name “I’m Not a Gun”. The album impressively demonstrated that Tejada can make a place for himself in post-rock circles as well, mixing electronic and acoustic sounds in the Tortoise tradition.

Wait for the acid lead line that kicks in around the 6 minute mark to get the full effect from this latest offering from Josh Wink.

Ghosthustler – Only Me To Trust

80’s esque synth lines and a booty shake rhythm make this track.   Ghosthustler is from Dentron, Texas and produces some get up and dance tracks.   However, recently one member from the group has left (Alan Paloma), but Ghosthustler lives on and promises the following:

“With respect to Alan’s decision to leave the band, we’ve axed all the songs with his vocals. Don’t fret though!!! Look forward to our new single that will blow up on the scene in about 2 weeks. -Ghosthustler” (taken from their myspace page)

Huski – Undatow

TGIF — and to put everyone in the right mood for a great Friday night, I present, Huski. Sounding alot like Goldfrapp (think dance version Goldfrapp), with sultry vocals (courtesy of Maple Bee) and chilled electronic beats (courtesy of Pike).

last.fm wiki bio:
Huski – Happy accidents aren’t called as much for no reason. Often from the most unlikely of sources comes something special. So it was one night in mid 2005 when producer Pike found himself at a party in a Turkish restaurant watching an impromptu two song set by Maple Bee. Pike didn’t know anything about Maple apart from he had to work with her. Bending the truth completely he approached Maple and asked if she could sing on some tracks he had written. Pike didn’t have any songs or even a full set up for Logic Audio. But the connection had been made.
