4 To the Floor

This track is old news, and from ages ago (2003, I believe?), but this is key. This might just be the song that converts you over to the realm of funky-ass minimal techno/house/whatever.

Matthew Dear - Dog Days

Matthew Dear, and his various aliases (Audion, False, Jabberjaw) is one of my favorite electronic musicians around today. With a myriad of artists that are frustratingly indistinguishable from one another, Matthew Dear sticks out. Whether if he is layering over his affected vocals under his own name, or administering a full-on techno sleaze workout as Audion, his sound is always recognizable.

He has been gaining a lot of notoriety with his Audion moniker, whose "Mouth to Mouth" (Spectral) was one of the biggest club hits of 2006, being played by every (worthwhile) DJ imaginable. With good reason. His tracks are always just repetitive enough to make them wholly infectious without being grating. Unless you really dislike hard jacking body-moving beats. Which you might.

This song makes my hips and body start moving the same way Jamie Lidel's "When I Come Back Around" does.

I can see myself in the shower doing lots of Mick Jagger no-no fingers.
