Miss Kitten & The Hacker, “1982”

Miss Kitten and the Hacker’s “1982” may be a reference to the early days of techno, before it exploded on the European dance scene and the music and culture launched stars like Miss Kitten and her long-time collaborator The Hacker. “1982” helped springboard the electro-euro-pop scene in Europe and throughout the world.

Mikey Murka, “Sensi Addict”

Mikey Murka blesses the Mic on this release from German digital reggae crew Jahtari. The concept behind Jahtari is simple: they create DUB but with laptops. The result is what they call: Digital Laptop Reggae (DLR). Since 2004 this group has worked with MCs in Europe and all over the world. “Sensi Addict” showcases how proper digital rhythms works with traditional island-vocal stylings.

Andy Votel, “Return Of The Spooky Driver”

Andy Votel is pure genius! Not only is he the co-founder of the super cool Manchester record label Twisted Nerve Records, but he is a brilliant producer and a great musician! ”Return of The Spooky Driver” is a mad-psychedelic trip into the mind of Gaston Leroux (Phantom of the Opera), or even a track form the Clockwork Orange soundtrack. With a sample of Primal Scream’s anthem ”Kill All Hippies” it’s a well rounded track with heaps of indie credibility!

OK Go, “Here Comes the Fire”

OK Go always seem to come up with the catchiest hooks that accentuate their longing-pop melodies and noisy-guitar tones, all placed over a steady rockin’ beat. The energetic chorus of “Here Comes the Fire” stays in your head long after the song’s final over-charged note. In other words: The perfect pop song.
