Pablo Fierro – Alegranza (Ethno Mix)

Radiohead fans might have some issues with this one but what the hell, it’s got a different feel, but it will no doubt polarise people. Granted it’s a flagrant use of the ‘those’ iconic chords, but I’m ok looking past that to the really quite interesting production here. Those vocals tear a hole in me…

Munich Machine – Space Warrior (Athome Acid Mix)

Raucous acid edit action today as ‘Dj Athome’ tackles a wonderfully cosmic original (produced by Giorgio Moroder) and layers down some enthusiastic elements on top.

This Egyptian jazz funk hidden treasure from Magdy El Hossainy called ‘Music De Carnaval’ was officially repressed by Pépite records in France on 7″ and Discotheque Fantastique have reworked it to perfection.

Jain – Makeba (Discothèque Fantastique remix)

Jain’s ‘Makeba’ is all kinds of famous, 56 million views on Youtube, but for once it’s pretty well deserved, it’s absolutely great pop music, full of creativity and with a unreal video. Anyway, there’s something about the hook in the track that screams to be made a little tougher and more club friendly, thats where…
