If you’re the same as me you’ll have 100’s of podcasts random mixes and just general waste clogging up your hard drive. In an attempt to spring clean my computer the other day i was going through all my podcasts and deleting out the rubbish, and checking out the stuff that had recently downloaded that i’d not got chance to listen to yet.
Boy OH Boy did i miss a trick by not getting onto this one sooner… its an absolute BURNER!!! Honestly, first time i ever wheeled up a podcast (?!?) when he drops his forthcoming French Fries remix (Video Below)! This mix is properly refreshing and he’s onto some serious future business, i know we always say it but this guy is one to watch and if no one books him to play manchester soon then we might just have to come out of hiding to do just that! Download the mix from the link below and visit XLR8R to find out more info… we’ve also included a cheeky little bouns for you which is another of our favourite tracks from the mix.
Bouns Beat: Drop The Lime – Hot As Hell (Canblaster Remix)
xxxy is a Manchester based producer and DJ who’s been taking discerning dance floors near and far by storm of late
With a sound that takes in all the best bits of garage and early house and a DJing style that combines fluidity as well as fun, the local boy has really been floating the Contort Yourself boat of late.
Try to catch him on one of his regularly fantastic excursions on U-Stream and cop his recent release Ordinary Things / You Always Start It on Ten Thousand Yen the a-side of which featured on our Winter’s Heat mix.

The Dirtbombs have knocking around for an absolute age, peddling the kind of filthy garage-rock that got them swept up in a wave of über-hype around the turn of the century along with bands like The White Stripes and ADULT. Having been residents of Detroit for quite some time, it seems that they have picked up an ear for the city’s other main musical export -TECHNO.
This fascination has led to The Dirtbombs throwing a batch of Detroit classics into a melting pot, stirring them around (rather haphazardly) and touring them out onto the dance-floor.
The results are ‘Party Store’ which is chock-full of some seriously filthy punk-funk bangers, fire yourselves down to your local independent record emporium and get yourselves a copy.

BONUS BEAT: Hercules & Love Affair – My House (Leo Zero Remix)
Unsure whether this is an official remix or he’s got hold of the acapella and done his own re-rub, what ever it is it’s all over the internet and its an absolute burner so sure they wont mind us sharing it.

While you’re here check out his recent mixtape for the Circus Dj Competition for which he scooped up fist place with ease and will be opening up business for Seth Troxler and John Digweed at said Liverpudlian institution next month… Plus it ends with one of our favourite tracks of all time!
Eurgh… more kids with a stupid fucking talent for making some of the most on point forward thinking music out there right now. I mean look at this guy, come on, he’s barely out of his teens and he’s knocking out music like this:
MASSIVE… i know… we’re gonna stick our heads on the line here and say that this is possibly one of the top 10 tunes that will come out this year and its only January!?! In fact it dropps on the 31st of Jan to be precise and you can pick it up HERE. For more info on one of our favourite producers of the moment hit up his myspace http://www.myspace.com/juliobashmore snd for further listening cop for this mix that he put together in August of last year for Crack Magazine HERE

You know I’m swag. You know I love bassline. Burgaboy takes me from rainy Manchester to heaven and back for 3 minutes and 35 seconds….
Why does this guy
It makes me sick to think this guy is only just out of his teens and yet he’s churning out some of the most forward thinking, blissed-out, cosmic boogie and electronical doo-woop going… peep his AWESOME “The Love Quadrant” video below and FACT mix from the start of last year. I know this mx isn’t the newest but for sure gives you a real flavour of what this guy is about with a whole host of his own productions in there. If you’re after something a little more up to date then get involved in his Resident Advisor mix from the beginning of November last year.

Massive BRAPS to Jackmaster who won DJ Magazine’s “Best Breakthrough DJ Award” 2010 (we voted for you!). If you came down about this time last year to see him play at COYO you’ll know why he scooped the gong. We knew we were in for a top night when we got a very cryptic phone call from the man himself earlier in the day saying “Do you boys like to party, you know, really party”. This was one of my personal favourite nights we ever had in the cave, so in honer of this check out the first Numbers Podcast that takes you From Paris to Baltimore via Detroit!
You love big gay disco balls spinning, rotating, gyrating, thrusting all over your face and body? If the answer’s yes then this is the compilation for you! Shiny Disco Club is a Label based out of Lyon, and they’re offering this Hefty compilation of Millenium Disco for nishmans! Weighing in at a mighty 29 Tracks (all of which are 320kps we might add) there’s a lot to stomach here… but once you’ve separated out the wheat from the chaff there’s a pretty sturdy wedge of heat here, plenty to get any party started.

Hudson Mohawke showers Hoya Hoya’s own Krystal Klear’s track ‘Tried For Your Love’ with a bucketful of heat that’s sure to get the dancefloor so full it’ll be bustin’ at the seams. If you got that mad and undying love for divine piano stabs then quite frankly, this ones for you.
If you’re looking for more reasons to listen then this guy is one of the biggest personalities in Manchester…and plays one helluva mean set that makes that wannabe-cool-folded-arms-against-the-wall thing damn near impossible.
Click here to download the remix for FREEEEEEE from RCRDLBL.
This guy knows what life is about. He’s got god awful teeth, an enviable microphone waggling technique and serious miming skills. Not to mention an out of sync dance troupe all kitted out in painfully 80s full-body-leotard type-ish outifts.
I wonder where O’Gar is now?
