As seems to be MuchMusic’s bread-and-butter these days… they are airing another remake of a better British sitcom (because Canadians are soooooooooooo boring) that involves some dorky Brits trying to get laid and drinking…. hang on wait-a-minute…they sound JUST like Canadians.

The show is called The Inbetweeners.  Good times, quality laughs.  I mention the show because I *think* it was last night we heard the song “Sleep Alone” by Two Door Cinema Club during the commercials.  Much still plays the odd video, or part of a video between shows.  I think we heard the song then.  Coral and I both bobbed along and went, “oh right, I like this band.”

So me and Coral are basically grownup teenagers that watch the Inbetweeners (and LA Complex! so good).

Finished the most mighty of weekends… a couple fundraisers and a couple weddings made for a busy 4 days.  Somewhere in that mix I had to try and be a dad and do you know… my actual job on the Zone.

Focus was required, but hard to come by as I have my eyes firmly planted on Friday, September 23rd… Rifflandia!

OK, so Rifflandia actually begins on the Thursday, Friday is when Boitano and me DJ at the Phillips Brewery stage.  Friday night at 9PM.  After DJ Anger… and later that night; Michael Rault then one of our favourites at the Zone, Toronto’s Ko takes the stage.  Boitano says that Broken Social Scene ends just as we start… so I get if you have them as a “must see!” but maybe you’ll truly endeavour to bee-line to Phillips to catch the end of our set.  We’d really love to see some friendlies in the audience.

For our set… we are thinking that we’ll mainly try and focus on Modern Rock Remixes (Think Boitano’s Mixtape) to keep us on point for people that come to check us out.  That said… well I love my modern electronic stuff from M83 and the new Neon Indian.  I’ll try to squish them in if I can… early in the set.

I did fin a monster remix of the True Blood soundtrack!  Heavy electronic… and Vampires!  Oh My!

Savage.  I heard that jammer on the XM Alt Nation remix show on Saturday night.  DJ Liquid also played this remix from Oasis.

I’ll be choosing about half the songs so I want to include M83‘s “Midnight City” because I am obsessed.

Another song I am enjoying is Neon Indian’s “Polish Girl.”

I also have a remix of Two Door Cinema Club‘s “What You Know.”

OK so that is almooooooost 30 minutes.  Any requests?  And before you ask, yes I have made a commitment to end the set with Brian McNight’s 1999 slow jam anthem “Back At One.” (uhhhh if Boitano will let me and the people don’t have a revolution against me).

Right, requests… whaddya got?

Go with yourself.

I have more than a couple jammers to share.  All very bright, booty-shaking, catchy, poptastical cuts.  Almost all these songs were recommended to me by quality folks and now I’m passing them on to you.

Our musical journey begins East of the rockies in a little burgh that maybe you’ve heard of… Cincinnati. This fine metro of 2 million folks straddling the Ohio/Kentucky border is famous for WKRP, Ocho Cinqo and soon to be dance-rockers Walk the Moon.

My girl Scotty Fraser said I HAD to check out the song “Anna Sun.”

 Growing up in Coquitlam…me and my friends would play “guns.”  Basically we trolled the neighbourhood fighting an epic war between the righteous and the not so righteous.

What if someone took our imagination and made a music video?  My friend Paul tracked this music video down from the band Is Tropical and went, SWA?  Holy shit right!?!  Did those kids just cut another kid’s head off in cartoony gory violence?  I think so.

Do these London cats have it dialed in sans rad music video?  I was feeling it.  I seriously want to make-out with Paul for sharing this song with me.  no wait… errrr.  You know what I mean. or do you?

Trolling the net I found this poignant prose in regards to Is Tropical’s music video and quotes George Carlin circa 1988:

“It’s a great country, but it’s a strange culture… This has got to be the only country in the world that could ever come up with a disease like bulimia; gotta be the only country in the world where some people have no food at all, and other people eat a nourishing meal and puke it up intentionally. This is a country where tobacco kills four hundred thousand people a year, so they ban artificial sweeteners! Because a rat died! You know what I mean? This is a place where gun store owners are given a list of stolen credit cards, but not a list of criminals and maniacs! And now, they’re thinking about banning toy guns — and they’re gonna keep the fucking real ones!

Strange culture indeed.

… and because France has it figured out right now in electro-pop, I found out Is tropical is on a record/fashion label called Kitsune Maison.  Same label as Zone modern rockers Two Door Cinema Club.  There I found this glittery remix of the hot single “What You Know.”

This party stays overseas in the domain of the Gold Panda from London.

Crystalhead sent me this mighty remix of Gold Panda’s “Marriage (Star slinger Remix)”

I like the song.  Its very bright.  A little punchier than a lot of other chillwave.

mmmm, cocktails… that’s what pairs nicely with these beats.

Thank you friends for sharing some great new music with me.  Go with yourself.
