Underworld (Karl Hyde & Rick Smith)

How many people in the world today woke up with a massive hankering to listen to Underworld?

90s Acid House/ Progressive Trance at its best.

Mathemagic… magic indeed!

Canadian-based Mathemagic are Evan and Dylan Euteneier. Their sounds encompass heartachingly moody dreampop/ chillwave (really wanted to avoid that word, but they've bundled themselves with Neon Indian and Washed Out) and that sudden realisation that you miss your childhood innocence. They sound extremely promising for a very young group (currently only have 3 tracks featured on their Last.fm). Either way, these two tracks are extraordinarily beautiful.

Basic Online Social Engagement

It sucks being a small business all the time. You don't have the tools, resources or the money to develop all these crazy ideas you want to experiment with, like the super hybrid thing you wanted to do involving every single social media application out there. Heck, I'm still trying to emulate Toys R Us' Facebook Page campaign and their successful drive during the Christmas period collecting fans. I sell toys too!

But no it doesn't work that way.

Groove Armada’s new Album ‘Black Light’

Groove Armada. They would be the last group you'd guess hearing tracks from their latest album Black Light. I freaked out in the car after first hearing Warsaw on Triple J that it was by these cheeky fellas. They've completely changed their style, but it is one hell of a welcoming change. Groove Armada doing dance rock with a surge of dark synth, with noticeable influences from New Order and David Bowie? They somehow did it.

Grasscut – Muppet (Nathan Fake Remix)

One of my favourite radio station programs, Triple J's Soundlab,  is full of amazing surprises, and last night didn't fail to deliver. They played a remix of a track by an experimental UK group Grasscut and I was completely floored by how fucking eerily good it was, especially towards the second half of the song. Dance with a despairingly hopeless panic attack with sirens blaring in the background and a non-stop beat that won't let you off the hook until the end. It did help that it was late and raining.

Before Cut Copy were Cut Copy

All the way back in 2001, before their popular dance electro albums Bright Like Neon Love and In Ghost Colours, Cut Copy released their first EP titled I Thought of Numbers. It contained 7 tracks, some of which reminded me of something the Avalanches would've done. Six or so years later, they would play a large role in propelling Australia's electro scene, alongside The Presets and The Midnight Juggernauts.
