Ok, so here we are. All ready and back and stuff. Before I get into the much delayed April mixtape, just wanted to say thanks for hanging around, those of you that did. The love on the facebook page was great. I needed this time off for various reasons, and although the fact that I’m back doesn’t mean I’m going to be posting everyday, things will be a little more regular.
Ok, so enough of that. Below is a pretty bumper mix of my fave tracks from April. Given the time delay, I thought I should add in a fair few tracks, so the mix is a full 17 tracks long. As with every month, you can stream it and download it below, and I’ve also included some of the tracks as free download.

DEJA are always going to do something a little outta left-field. Their left-field electronica infused pop music always manages to fit a mood, and never goes go far outta left-field that…well…there’s no more field. It’s just stands.
Their clips equally hit it out of the park (to keep that tortured, pretty crap analogy going). Featuring some pretty stunning photography, the clip for their latest single ‘Holiday’ also includes a small bit of expressive/interpretive dance, but hey, the clip looks absolutely amazing.
Check it out just below, and if you dig the track, you can download that one just below too!
A couple of days late, but the move up to Sydneytown and the getting back into uni has taken over! But, of course, still looking for every excuse to post on maamf!
These are the tracks that got me through January, a pretty massive month for me. So to those bands/artists below, thanks heaps!
As per usual, you can stream and download the full mix, and of course, there are a few of the tracks up for download too.
It’s a massive list (15 tracks) for a pretty massive month!

Woah. No, you didn’t read that incorrectly. This is the September edition of the maamf mixtape series. After a crazy busy month or so, I’ve finally gotten round to chucking all my fave tracks of the month into one tape. All local stuff, all fucking good.
Electric Empire – Changin’
Hungry Kids of Hungary – Sharp Shooter
Maxi – From The Start
Step-Panther – Maybe Later
Damn Terran – Pills
South City Sushi Cop – Bad Blocks
DEJA – Luststruck (Cosmo Black Remix)
Twerps – Work It Out
To my ears, this feels as though it should be the other way around. The original track sounds like a remix, and the remix sounds like the original.
Maybe that’s DEJA‘s rather excellent sense of production -that slowed down groove of the original is big as all hell and absolutely kills. Then there’s Claire’s vocals – sitting so tightly with that groove.
Cosmo Black‘s remix ramps up that groove into a more dancefloor friendly big club track. I really dig the Cosmo Black boys and yeah, they kill it with this remix – THAT SAX!
You should also check out Cosmo Black’s new project Saturn Program, something that the DEJA peeps helped out on.
We’ve featured Cosmo Black quite a few times, right from the early days when this blog was a little more shit than it is now.
Thank fuck for good music aye…saving this here thing time and time again.
Anyway, Cosmo Black have a newy…sounds very early Miami Horror (definite good thing!). The track is called Let The Cold Air In and features remixes from Emperor Machine and Deja. I’m a little nervous writing this, but I think this will be the track that breaks Cosmo Black. This is the one they’ve got completely right. Not that the other earlier tracks haven’t been good, I just think they’ve arrived with this one!
The remixes are also stellar, so good that we got both streaming down below. Emperor Machine one is a killer! As is Melbourne guys Deja!
Make sure you check out Cosmo playing at CAN’T SAY on Oct 7 down at Miss Libertines. There’s also an Adelaide launch date ( Houndstooth @ Rocket Bar on Fri Oct 21) and one for Sydney in the pipeline.
