Promos of the Week

Right, time for a new feature.

Every day, we get a healthy stack of promo emails. Quite a lot of them are shit, but a few of them sneak pass the crap-o-meter and I think some of these should get more recognition, so every week, i'll post my 3 or 4 favourite promos.

I should warn you though, that I don't get all of the promos that are sent. Prez forwards me a batch of them every day or two, so the ones I post, are the ones i get on my inbox.

Anyway, onto the tracks.

The first one is by a group called Laser Sex. Bit of an odd name.
They're from Scranton, Pennsylvania and this is their first single "Dr. Thunder Nose".

It is a nice, flowing track with a deep feeling to it. It's a bit hard to describe, but the highlight is the guitar. Shame about the ending vocal samples though, they don't make much sense here.

This next one is by CROPS, a Melbourne based british artist, who also gives us his first single, "Ana".

With fantastic vocals, this is a smooth and relaxing track, with a great use of synths and with a beat that just gives it that extra bit of force.

Finally, we have something a bit funkier, by Claude Perdu, who we featured not long ago.

This is a remix for Faisal's "Journey" that entered a competition but sadly didn't win.

It has a fantastic bassline and the sample work follows right behind it. I can't figure out how this remix didn't win, this is what all House music should be like.

You should check out "Forgot About Dre" from Dr. Dre's "2001" album.

Also, a shame the music goes away when you click the "Post a comment" link! :)

That Claude Perdu remix is incredible, really reminds me of classic house music around MAW-era. In a strange turn of events though I can't find the original to compare it to so I don't know how much of that is Claude's work!
