Every now and then I hear a song, or in this case a set of songs, that really begin to blur the lines between the ‘underground’ and mainstream american culture. When I listening to these tracks, nine times out of ten, I am terribly disappointed and can’t help but agree with popular phrases like ‘sell out’ and ‘weak.’ After nearly giving up on the possibility of pop song turned noise-porn, I could barely contain myself when I stumbled upon this weeks featured artist.
I give you… Chrispy!
Straight outta the UK and full of filth, Chrispy is serious about his remixes. He’s remixed some of the ‘poppier’ music out there and still manages to take us on a dark journey with some ‘chrispy’ wobbles and deliciously melodic synth lines. If your looking for a healthy dose of ‘happy party music’ meets ‘brain frying wobbles’ then you will not be disappointed.

Alex Kenji has been one of my favorite house artists for a long time and, though his latest releases had begun to feel a little stale the last couple months, he’s right back on track with his latest release on Spinnin Records. The prolific Italian uses a very simple, very obvious, and very effective vocal sample that makes the track an instant party starter and a great opening track. His signature metronome-like hats and claps help keep the groove going on this definite hit. DL here.
Kenji’s remix of Las Vegas house maestros, Starkillers, is a massive party banger again with the ridiculous vocal sample. You can’t really go wrong when an unnaturally deep voice tells you it’s coming to fuck shit up. DL here.

'8 Days in Kazantip' is Kenji's Hotfingers label’s first foray into the exploding Balkan sound that’s been filling the airwaves lately. Heavy ethnic strings, flutes, and vocals make this one a spicy track that would go down nicely right before some Riva Starr drunkeness. DL here.
