Bit of a lacklustre month from this side in terms of posting, but man, I’m glad I get the opportunity to put all the ace songs for the month that I didn’t write about into this mixtape.

Some real summery vibes in for March – and on the most part up here it’s been pretty summery (win win).

Of course all these tracks are standouts, but if I can make a few mentions – the Camperdown & Out record is really really great. So is the Dick Diver album. And then of course anything from Lindsay Tuc is ace – that dude is your deep house wet dream. The new project from Tim Shiel (Faux Pas), Telling looks heaps promising too. And finally, man, that new Courtney Barnett track is absolutely golden – one of my faves of the year for sure.

Without further ado though, below are my fave for march.

Kids in Melbourne may know of Dorothy. It’s a night down at Tramp on Thursday nights. They got some super saweet dudes playing…and they’re launching their first mix cd THIS Thursday (27/5/2010). RSVP on the much hated facebook or just rock up. It’s free entry 9-10 and you get your FREE mix 2disc set if you rock up before 12.
But yeah yeah, Melbourne has plenty of cool nights. What makes this one better? Well, I did mention it was FREE (something a bit unheard of – i’m looking at you New Guernica). I believe I also mentioned that you get the CD for FREE on entry. One thing I didn’t mention though is that Cassian, the ‘zulu-synth prodigy’ off Bang Gang 12″ is playing. He’s also mixed disc one of the Dorothy Imaginarium #1 Disc that YOU GET FOR FREE if you pop along Thursday night.

sexy time

ok. I think one of my New Year Resolutions will be to find another record label other than Modular and Bang Gang 12″s that I think are the beezneezzz. So, without further ado, I promise you my last ever Mod/Bang specific post! (NB. Promises are made to be broken right? oh wait…that’s rules. anyway…i’m not good at keeping promises…wow…not really painting a very good picture of myself am i??!!)

Let’s get on with it. Two bands/acts have been put on high rotation of late. And they’re both Aussie. The Swiss and Cassian.

First off, The Swiss. What’s perhaps the best thing about these dudes is that they don’t hail from your typical electro scene of Melbourne or Sydney. The Swiss are from Adelaide, proving it doesn’t matter where you came from, it’s how you do it that counts. Ohh…how sweet. I posted their track Movement 1 a while ago, and they do some bloody great disco. As I said in my earlier post, these dudes are a definite indication that disco may well be sticking around for a while yet. This is a newy from the recently signed Modular boys. It’s called Bubble Bath. It’s due out on Jan 29th, and the EP is going to feature some remixes from Tensnake and Knightlife. BAM!

The Swiss – Bubble Bath

Second for the day is a dude out of Melbourne/Sydney. He’s called Cassian. He is pretty bloody good also. He kinda has that disco feel too, like the Swiss, but far more electro. The fella is signed to Bang Gang 12″s and has already featured pretty heavily on their compilations. I definitely recommend checking out the Bang Gang 12″s MySpace for some of the acts on their list. I’m not sure if a better crew of electro goodness could ever be assembled. Anyway, this is a new one from Cassian. It’s called The Fuck Song. And it features on his new release, the Friday Night EP.

Cassian – The Fuck Song

K. That’ll do the ramble for now
