Taras 3000 and Schleusolz

Some new music has come my way.  This first track is from my friend Dima who djs and throws the best parties in Moscow.  He is also known as Taras3000. He probably thinks this track is too cheesy and pop, but I think it's some of the best work he's done.  You can read about his Idle Conversation party here. And more here.  The band is called Slideshow Park from Xuman records, which looks like a cool little label.

Schleusolz is a Frankfurt, Germany band that contacted me out of the blue on Myspace.  They exhibit a trait I often find in German bands, they use something from the past in a clever new way.  Here are 60's sort of sounds looped in a sort of Pilooski-ish way.  Very catchy.  Check the latest songs on their myspace as well cause this is the only free one they sent me.

live sets from Armando and Farley Jackmaster Funk on WBMX 1987-1988

Not much to say here and I don't have a tracklist but these are both excellent early house mixes in decent quality sound.  One side is Armando (also referred to as Land of Confusion Capital One) and is quite intense amazing analog sounding acid.  The Farley set is more fun but not necessarily as good quality sound.  I found this different Farley set (search for the DHP mix 600 with Joe Smooth in it) with tracklisting that is really great with Ten City tracks etc. (by the way, isn't it amazing how much Byron Stingily sounds like Sylvester in Ten City).
