TUNEME: ESSENTIALS

Hello, Bonjourno, privet, shalom, guten tag, salamaleikum...

We're introducing a brand new feature to Trouble Stereo - a weekly dose of tracks that we think you just CAN'T be without. We've teamed up with our good friend over at TUNEme and he'll be providing you with the tunes that he thinks should be in your music collection each and every week! Below are the 5 essentials to your music diet this week.

Our favorite track right now comes from the continually brilliant Foamo (pictured). It's fair to say that you won't be able to escape his outstanding remix of Bulletproof pretty soon, so why not enjoy it for a while and play it to death at home first?

TUNEme would like to apologise for the particularly DUB feel to his first batch of essentials - things won't always be this bassy!

1) La Roux - Bulletproof (Foamo Remix)

2) Don Diablo & Example - Hooligans (Doorly's Dubstep Remix)

3) Bionic Commando - Bionic Commando Theme (Rusko Remix)

4) Biscope - Ol Dirty (Shimmy Shimmy Ya RRemix)

5) Cam'ron - Silky (No Homo)

TROUBLED THOUGHTS: MIGHTYFOOLS + DEM SLACKERS

Trouble Stereo favorites DEM SLACKERS have just sent us their latest blog release - a filthy remix of Amsterdam by fellow dutch fidget producers Mightyfools. The boys remix of Amsterdam is a wonky, wobbly, fidget banquet with a beastly, repetitive bassline. A 1:00am face melter to throw all kinds of absurd shapes to! Make sure you keep your eyes open and yours ears peeled for the lads upcoming Trouble Stereo mixtape.

Mightyfools - Amsterdam ft. Guerilla Speakerz (Dem Slackers Remix)

BONUS: Mightyfools - Amsterdam ft. Guerilla Speakerz (BUIZA 'Barkie' Remix)

Head over to Dem Slackers myspace now to hear their soon to be released remix of Foamo's Rockerman.

TROUBLED THOUGHTS: GRUM + NIGHTRIDERS

U.S artist NIGHTRIDERS (OMG Recordings) have just sent us their unreleased remix of Grum's first single Runaway. A glorious slice of synth laden disco house for summer consumption. Check out their myspace for more delicate disco creations and watch out for their upcoming remixes of Xinobi and Cryptonites.

TROUBLED THOUGHTS: 3 IS A CROWD + LAZY ANTS

Italian trio 3 Is A Crowd have sent over a new remix of their recent release "What is a DJ?" (available to download now at iTunes, Juno and Beatport). The remix "cooked in a hot hardfloor sauce" by fellow Italian's Lazy Ants (NT89 & Kill Phil) is one BIG, MEAN track. A squeaking, stomper with deadly beats. You will either love this one or hate it.

3 Is A Crowd - What is a DJ? (Lazy Ants Remix)

3 Is A Crowd are currently working on new material with Edu K and En Masse; so expect plenty more, fresh Italian sounds very soon.

Recently featured Lazy Ants have also just sent over some more tracks for your aural pleasure! Their remix of Runark by Congorock is another BIG production. An invigorating remix fuelled by constant pounding beats, relentless, blaring synths and the recurring vocal snippet- "don't get busy on the tempo!" FIERCE!!!

Congorock - Runark (Lazy Ants Remix)

Lazy Ants original track "Choke Me Spank Me" is the boys finest production so far. A track that features NT89's now trademark high-pitched rave synths and the wonderfully lewd, female vocal sample "Choke me, spank me, pull me hair." Lords Of Acid fans eat your filthy hearts out!!

TROUBLED THOUGHTS: MESSKID

Rising Brooklyn DJ and producer MESSKID has just sent us his first original production 'Wolves.' A rattling, minimal track with strong, crunky synths and hard, rolling beats. This is a fearsome first original production recorded in just four sessions at Izzy Gold Studios. We can guarantee you'll be hearing a lot more from this fella over the next few months!

TROUBLED THOUGHTS: PATRICK WOLF + STOPMAKINGME & SINGLETON

Stopmakingme (Kill Em All/AITBF) & Singleton have joined forces again to construct a dark and deeply sinister remix of Patrick Wolf's new single 'Vulture.' Daniel Avery and Simon Singleton are two lads constantly proving their musical worth; whether through their live DJ sets, mixtapes or productions. Their latest collaboration is a ghostly creation made up of gentle synths and beats that are superbly blended with Wolf's melancholy vocals.

HIMAN a.k.a. Julien Lacroix is a 23 year old French DJ. He sent us this live mix which was recorded at 'Baiser de Paris' in February and we immediately loved the French House vibe. This mix explodes into life with a resounding statement of intent and is quickly pushed forward by tracks that are joyous and brazenly optimistic. Not a perfect listen, but there is drive and a sense of insistence throughout. A summery mix...recorded in February.
