First, let me say thanks to Tednindi for posting/putting all of these in one convenient place
I've talked about them before and I will indeed talk about them again. Erol Alkan and Richard Norris, two London DJs who are apparently very highly regarded, cut up and remix 60s/70s Psych Rock tunes, some familiar and some very obscure. I'm not really into Dance/Club music so I do not know much about them but goddamn this stuff is so much fun! They're starting to get some press attention as well since they have just released a "Re-animation" album of tracks by Franz Ferdinand, Chemical Brothers, and Peter, Bjorn, & John. Not so much my cup of tea but the debut full length was posted here (Twice actually) which you can find HERE and is HIGHLY RECOMMENDED. On top of that, there are two completely bad ass club mixes (look at those setlists!) and a short radio mash up. Gotta love "Hey Bulldog" in there. I'm telling you, they're like Girl Talk for Psych nerds. Who knew that all these bands needed was some groovy drum beats to become music you dance to at a club?
