CHOON OF THE DAY: "BUGATTI" - Tiga [Video]


So the video for Tiga's arguably best single to date "Bugatti" has just been released and quite simply I can't really think of a mightier candidate for the Video of the Year title this year. Hilarious, clever and super-stylish in that amusingly kitschy way.

SHREM'S DOUBLE TROUBLE: "HYPNOTIC DANCE (Nicholas Remix)" - Kim Ann Foxman /// "PLEASURE PRINCIPLE" - Lauren Flax feat. Kim Ann Foxman


Kim Ann Foxman, the wonder child of the underground house scene, is certainly keeping herself and her fanbase busy. The former Hercules & Love Affair collaborator has recently joined efforts with Lauren Flax from CREEP for an astonishing cover of one of Janet Jackson's Top 10 hits from the unbeatable "Control" era - "The Pleasure Principle". The single including dancefloor-ready remixes by Eli Escobar and Foxman herself is out now. In addition one of the house producers I worship the most, Nicholas remixed Kim Ann Foxman's "Hypnotic Dance", a b-side on her 2012 "Return It" single. This new phenomenal mix, bringing us right back to those hedonistic neon clubs circa 1988, is part of Needwant's forthcoming compilation celebrating 5 years of the label. Nicholas has just effortlessly delivered one of the greatest remixes of 2014.





Here's Miss Janet's equally smashing original:



On top of it all Kim Ann Foxman has also just submitted a delicious remix of "Journey Into the Deep" by Shaun J Wright & Alinka:

SHREM'S FUTURE ANTHEMS: "STUTTER" - Steed Lord


According to my post yesterday, celebrating Shrem's Carousel's 20000 Fans, I get to mention Steed Lord for the 51st time on my blog! The Icelandic trio of DIY electro pop fashionistas are back this week with single #3 announcing the release of their highly anticipated 4th studio album "The Prophecy pt. 2". Kali, Eddie and Mega have prepared a real oldschool feast garnished with 1980's synths, magnetising diva vocals and their signature productional magic. Above all though "Stutter" electrifies with another flawless melody and seductive chorus, we wouldn't have expected anything less from Steed Lord at this stage.

If you happen to be in Los Angeles this Friday the band is having their Single Release Party and showcase in Space 15 Twenty. Find more details on this event on Facebook!

CHOONS OF THE DAY: "ALCHEMY" + "BLACK SCORPIO" - TĀLĀ


Last night Aesop shared the official video for TĀLĀ's mesmerising new single "Alchemy" which matched the utter-brilliance of her epic "Serbia" earlier on this year. Video by Studio Moross.



Looks like I might have forgotten to post about "Black Scorpio" another ace track from this promising and genre-bending producer. Here it is:



"Alchemy" EP is out 1st December 2014. Pre-order your 12" HERE!

SHREM'S LIST OBSESSION [20000 FANS EDITION]: Shrem's Top 20 Most Blogged About Artists So Far


I am over the moon! Still remember taking a screen-shot when my SHREM'S CAROUSEL OF ÜBER NERDINESS blog hit its first 100 followers. I never in my wildest dreams thought back in January 2010 that I would ever be able to reach such audience especially considering how nerdy and annoyingly subjective I tend to be. 20000 likes!!! AAAAAAAGGGGGGHHHHHHH! Such a milestone for me. Here's a massive THANK YOU to every single one of you who encouraged me to start blogging in the first place and to all of you kind muso friends for visiting my little musical carousel, sharing, liking commenting, discovering stuff, criticising me and in general supporting my biggest hobby ever: music selecting, reflecting and collecting. "Music Selector is the Soul Reflector" as one of my biggest idols Lady Miss Kier once said... Here's a special anniversary post documenting Top 20 Artists I worshipped, cherished and blogged about the most since the creation of this blog.
