“I’ll be your schoolgirl dream, I’ll shake my peaches & cream…”

So, it’s been, like, two months since I recorded a Kiss The Future mix (heh, Two Months Off. See: Underworld). While I’ve had a number of tracks earmarked, I just wasn’t finding the right combination of tracks that excited me…that was, until the night of SugarKRASH. My friend John Rivie, who DJs under the name Luvsik, dropped the remix of Beck’s Loser you’ll hear in this set, and it was like one hundred explosions going off in my body. From that point on, everything just gelled. I really love this particular KTF.

I don’t have anything else to add – the music totally does the talking.

“It’s a beautiful, beautiful scene; it’s a soul, soul heaven”

Fonzerelli is turning into one of my favorite artists. His track Spirit from KTFv14 is something I can listen to over and over again, along with his remix of Soul Heaven presented here. I know it’s GAYGAYGAY but I can’t help being moved by it – and I hate divas. The big surprise is Ferry Corsten’s mix of Bring The Noise, which kicks ass. I lived with a copy of Public Enemy’s Fear Of A Black Planet all during my freshman year of college, and I can still rap almost the entire track from memory. As soon as I heard the remix I started hearing Daft Punk’s Burnin’ paired with it. Dirty South has been remixing everyone and I love their bootleg mix of Confusion, one of New Order’s most reworked tracks (’83, ’90, ’95, ’02, and now ’07). Finally, NSA and RuPaul will have you laughing with Computer Love, the title of which is a nod to Kraftwerk and with lyrics taken from dirty personal ads on Craigslist (NSFW).

“This is what you came for, what you came for: Big! Fat! Beat!”

I can’t believe it’s been 12 weeks since I last posted a mix. I had no intention of letting it go that long, but between packing, relocating 2500 miles, DJ gigs, getting settled, and looking for a day job I just haven’t made time to put one together.

However, that means you get three months of new favorites.

With one exception, all of these were in my set at last week’s Basket in San Francisco (which also happened to be my birthday). Luvsik, who spun before me, dropped Bigger Than Big and I freaked out. It has that high-energy, squelchy electro sound that drives me nuts so I immediately downloaded it when I got home. I’ve been listening to it over and over along with the Rihanna track (which was a total surprise).

The intro bit was inspired by seeing Daft Punk in Berkeley about two weeks after I moved.

Other than that, I don’t have much to report. I’m glad to be back and I hope to start posting regularly again. I’ve even got some ideas for hosted shows, and I haven’t done one of those in seven months. Expect cameos and co-hosts.

Special thanks go out to Agent Adam, Bundy, Dann Edmonds, Luvsik, Mad Adam, Peter Black, and Tim Baker, who either inspired or directly turned me on to the tracks in this mix.
