The Vaccines – Melody Calling

The Vaccines are a band that I’ve seen the name of loads and have heard a couple of tunes from but never paid all that much attention to. I guess there are just too many indie bands out there to give them all a shot, which is a shame because what I’ve heard has been pretty good. They have a new EP out in August that this is the title track of and it’s really rather nice.

Dennis Parker – Like An Eagle

Porn star turned disco smasher with dance moves that make him look like he’s a puppet out of the Thunderbirds, Dennis Parker (RIP) rocks the place with the most awesome moustache and silver suit combo I’ve certainly ever seen. What a tune, though. A cheesy chorus that will be stuck in your head for days and barely enough lyrics to fill the back of a postcard but I always have to listen to this several times over whenever I play it.

Sadly not available to buy electronically anywhere online but it can be found here and there to download

Rudimental – Hell Could Freeze (Skream Remix)

Skream with yet more disco house remix action. His Duke Dumont remix was massive and now that he’s supposedly no longer making dubstep it would appear he’s fully embraced a more classic boogie style and I’m certainly not complaining.

Serum Studio Mix July 2013

I don’t listen to much D&B any more but it’s nice to dip in and out every now & then and check a few mixes. Of all the more recent producers who make tracks that some might call jump up I’ve always liked Serum’s tunes and I’ve heard a few mixes of his as well in the past which have all been good stuff. He’s also a good lad and posts nice sample sources on the RDB forums every now & then.

This mix is unashamedly about self-promotion and features mainly his or Bladerunner’s tracks but I’ll forgive him as there is a fair mix of styles in there alongside the standard steppers. We had a nice little armchair bop to this in the office today and you should like it if 175 BPM is your thing.
