Our new new single ‘I Didn’t Believe’ is out now in most territories, we worked alongside the very talented Alexander Burnett (of Sparkadia) & Marcus Browne for this release
After pleasantly surprising ourselves with the success of ‘Clair De Lune’, ‘I Didn’t Believe’ is a brief return to familiarity. It’s disco. No need to beat about the bush on that one. As taboo as the term has become, the genre has had more come-backs than a Hollywood bad guy. A feel-good guilty pleasure!
This time around we had our close friend, Elizabeth Rose come sing the track.
Jamiroquai/Notorious BIG – Notorious Insanity (1996)
Here’s the second bootleg from our 90s mix. Everything you hear in this one is from 1996. This may or may not be the final mashup we ever do, so lets all turn a blind eye just this one last time. To all you brow-raisers, keep that bushy little caterpillar above your right eyeball nice and low. In the spirit of the 90s (and even in the spirit of some classic Soulwax), here’s another bootleg to add some nostalgia to your next hip hop soiree.
We weren’t very old in ’96, but we were certainly listening to to enough music to know what we enjoyed. Even to this day, Jamiroquai remains and inspiration to our productions. Look no further than Foreign Language to catch a few glimpses of Cosmic Girl. The 90s mix was inevitably going to be hip hop, but we wanted to somehow sneak in a few other songs that were instrumental to shaping the decade and our tastes. It worked out as one of the most fortunate coincidences that Hypnotize and Virtual Insanity were in key together. And we know how naff it can be to throw a Biggy acapella over anything, but in tribute to that particular year (and even decade), we had to pay respect to one of the best in the game.
As a fun side note, the drums are taken from The Fugees – Killing Me Softly (also from 1996). This bootleg is so jam-packed with 1996′ness, it’s one Slap-band away from turning into a Troll Doll.

Notorious BIG – Hypnotize

Cassius/Outkast – Feeling for Rosa (1999)
We normally wouldn’t do things like this but too many people have asked for a download. We’re turning a blind eye to our own judgement on cheesy-mashups. So here is one of the bootlegs we made for the 90s mix. We’ve pulled it out of the project for your enjoyment.
This encapsulates 1999 for us. Cassius – Feeling For You was one of the first records we ever bought. The fact that it had a Les Rythmes Digitales Remix makes it even better. We weren’t to know at 12 years old that this song would still be just as playable 14 years later, and how much of an impact both Cassius and Stuart Price would have on our music tastes while learning to DJ. And what more needs to be said about Outkast? One of the greatest hip-hop acts to ever exist. They were the soundtrack to every house party since the beginning of high school. Big Boi and Andre 3000 in the same studio. How could that go wrong?

Some people on Reddit decided to mess with the UK pop charts. They all got together and encouraged everyone to buy a theme song from a WWE wrestler. The song is already up to #24. Now it has to play in the UK pop charts.
