Dreamtrak

We're pretty happy about having booked Digitalfoxglove for two gigs in Uppsala and Stockholm this weekend. And speaking of getting music tips from DJ and artist friends (like the recent StardonE post), Digitalfoxglove played a track I immediately loved during one of his live mixing sessions. The track was Dreamtrak's remix of London dance punk band TEETH!!!'s "See Spaces", and it just has that naive early 90s feel to it, when house, techno and rave still barely had broken up into separate genres.

After some mailing back and forth I'm now sitting with a bunch of remixes that I'm pretty stoked to share with you. Not only is his remixes just awesome, but they also show a great versatility; from Electric Youth-like electropop, via deep nu disco to that retro rave-techno style. I know a couple of these are on my shortlist for the "Best of 2010" list.

Remixed artists include Moshi Moshi acts James Yuill, cocknbullkid (and TEETH!!!), as well as his buddy nervous_testpilot, fjord disco maestro diskJokke, Londoners Internet Forever and Leeds indie band Sky Larkin.

Dreamtrak is also a studio and a label, and you can follow all of the awesomeness on the Website, MySpace, blog, Twitter, YouTube, Vimeo and Soundcloud pages.
