MISERABLE GIR (Nite Version)

Soulwax

I could really have chosen any of these guys’ so-called nite versions. They’re all stupefyingly good, but this one is my fave this week. It has a real rock feel to it but breaks down with an insane, fist-pumping electro-fuzz riff that starts wild and just gets wilder.

IS IT MEDICINE?

The Knife

I’m telling everyone I knew The Knife before they did (and it’s true! I even have their first album which no-one knows about -“ yet). They’re from Sweden and they’re weird in the best kind of way. Bj?meets Cyndi Lauper at the drugstore after studying all day in the library. This song made me dance like a retard the moment I heard it.

DOWN, DOWN, DOWN

The Presets

They’re from Sydney, they thump out electro-synth-rock stompers like nobody’s business, he’s cute and keeps singing, I wanna go down, I wanna go down -¦ Um, over here, sir.

BEHIND THE WHEEL (Shep Pettibone Remix)

Depeche Mode

One of my treasures. I have a Depeche Mode obsession the size of Texas and this one always quenches my desire -¦ temporarily. I recently bought out half a shop worth of DM stuff and don’t regret a penny spent. Timeless music for dancefloors and, well, everything.

THE CHASE

Giorgio Moroder

I love the old stuff too. I discovered this swirling, shiny, late 70s disco-electro gem some time last year and suddenly knew what all the Moroder fuss was about (it’s more than just I Feel Love). I thought it would be my little secret but then I heard Miss Kittin play it on NYE and I felt cheated and vindicated all at the same time. You know how it is.
