Hmmm, well i suppose the best place to start this follow up would be with the start of last week and an old favourite of mine. Yep, you got it, Bolt Action Five. They played Rough Trade (East, off Brick Lane) Lazast Monday for the launch of their new double A-side Think Fast/Can the Freedom Regulate the Volume?, bboth of which are fucking ace tracks, but i believe the single is stricktly limitedf to 500 7" copies, so get onto your computer or down to your local record store and get involved with this little touch of genius yeah.
Bolt Action Five - Can the Freedom... (struggling to find the file for this, bear with me!)

Brodinski, ah where to start? I'm not entirely sure i know a lot about this guy, but he's pretty good (bore witness to that last thursday at Fabric) and is making a name for himself on the London Dj/remix circuit. Here he has outdone himself with a Fantastic remix of Klaxons' cover of Grace's It's Not Over. (Which i've only got recently got hold of due to reasons stated in the previous post). ANyway, he's turned a short pop song into an after hours rave epic, so go get involved.

Next, some old favourites of mine who seem to be getting a lot of attention lately, Holy Fuck. I first came accross this lot at Nottingham's Dot To Dot festival in 2006 and they blew me away, making stunningly beautiful electronic music using what seemed to be a bizare mix of "instruments", using everything from battered old synths and drum programs to childrens toys to accomplish their soundscapes. ANyway, set closer and generally all round amazing song "lovely Allen" was the highlight, and here it is, just for you.
Holy Fuck - Lovely Allen
Now we come to a band i have to admit to not liking at all, The Others. I think there are two reasons behind this, the music, which i simply never enjoyed and the singer effectively promoting use of crack, paticualry after shows around influential kids. I don't know what he's up to these days and kudos if he's amended his way, but i aways found that pretty fucking wrong. (sorry if that got a little preachy, but reading interviews with him used to make me quite angry).
Anyhow, as i mentioned, i was never a fan of the music, however dupstep producer/DJ Caspa has taken their track "Bushido" and produced an enchanting deep dupstep track out it. It's really quite a beautiful remix, please investigate! (I think it wqas pulled off a radio show sao there's some chatter over it, sorry. It's still awesome!)
The others - Bushido (Caspa mix)
In my recent trawles through my favourite blogs and such i found something i'd always kind of hoped for but wasn't sure it would ever come to fruition, Justoce remixing Klaxons, though looking back at it i suppose it was always bound to happen at some point. I did find the choice of track a little strange, and justice seem to have given it the pop treatment rather than the banger treatment, but it's definitely worth a listen, see what you think and leave feedback if you feel like it.
Klaxons - As Above, So Below (Justice remix)
And, as promised, some Tough Alliance material (which you probably all have already).
The Tough Alliance - Something Special
The Tough Alliance - First Class Riot
