teezandos - highlander : ben ufo

he just posted about it on twitter iirc. i know absolutely nothing about uk hip hop and have major american white boy problems following uk hip hop lyrics but it still floored me.

Hehe that track appeared at the top of a rolling (I want to say) Summer Jams thread about a year or two ago, so that's how I heard it. It is a banger

Love & Slackness (Pepe Braddock Remix) - Mozesli. Introduced to me by Sean Cusick (Second Hand Satellites) around the time the Multiple Mirrors EP was hot. He played this song about 45mins into his set, sped up a fair bit. It sounded soo good. I've since bought the record, but it's never sounded as good as it did when he mixed it in.

Not that obscure, but I first heard a couple of songs in Avalanches mixes, one of which was "Uptown Top Ranking" in BRAINS (also sped up, positively giddy).

i first heard syclops 'mom the video broke' on a four tet .. fabric mix maybe? and sure enough it's the best 2-3 minutes of the best syclops track.

those tommyboy mixes on tumblr (wonder if that page is even still up) introduced me to a lot of now-favorites, such as:

DAF - brothers (mike hedges remix)
white door - in heaven (usually played at 45/sped up by cosmic DJs)
missing persons - surrender your heart

Imatran Voima - In/Out on the Radioactive Man FabricLive mix. I still put it into my sets and it still bangs as hard as it did twenty years ago.
