Three on a Thursday #18


It’s that time of the week again, Ladies and Gentleman of the (Jukebox) Jury, where I intend to show you three tunes so heinously brilliant, showing such twisted genius that you’ll be forced to agree that anyone who doesn’t enjoy them should be first against the wall when the revolution comes.

On then to the evidence.

Exhibit A this week is from DJ Moneyshot, who’s offering you Daft Elvis (Eurotunnel Boot) a wonderfully demented mash of Daft Punk with, erm, Elvis. Yes I know, there’s no helping him. As ever with this boy’s bootlegs it’s a match made in an (unlikely) heaven, and I can see it gracing the soundsystems of many a festival this year.

Exhibit B comes from a DJs so criminally good he even admits it himself. The primae facie evidence against the Illegal Cookin DJ is the full bore party banger Paid in Full Tool. With an awesome horn line and some brilliantly timed change ups this is one sweet tune. As they say “Put your hands up, put ’em up, stick up!.

The final piece of evidence, Exhibit C is a bit of a curveball. It takes a play out of the Gotan Project’s book, taking an ‘older’ musical style and dropping a subtle beat behind it to bring it right up to date. They did it with Tango music, and the oddly monikered Panama Cardoon has done it with Gospel to give us Jazzybell. Sweet.

And as ever, if you like the tunes up here, pop to see me live at Upfest @ The Tobacco Factory this Saturday
