Atomic Drop: Godzilla remix / Too Many Dicks on the Dancefloor
It's happened at last - Atomic Drop have dropped their first tune that us mere, non-superstar Dj's can get our grubby paws on! Coming straight outta Brighton, they're the best live electro/breaks/tech funk act of last year (I told you so), ripping it up at Glastonbury, Glade, Matter, Alpha Omega, Sonica, Electric Picnic and, ending the year where the started, on the beach at Bazil's massive Universo Paralello NYE party.
The first release is a bumping electro house remix of Dylan Rhymes and Tom Real's monster (geddit?) tech funk grinder Godzilla, on my fellow Suburbitonite Meat Katie's brilliant Lot 49 label.

Matt Dopamine's tumbling tech funk remix is also sick as...

Get 'em both from Beatport before your mum does.
If you don't already know, Atomic Drop is the filthy, sordid and downright dirty project of James Anthony (aka Liquid Djems, Liquid Records Co - Owner/Founder) and Ken Barrett(aka Keny Keys), with occasional guest appearances by Joe Markendale and Daniel Thomas. They've also got a very close relationship with Inside Us All (Voted 2009 Number 01 VJ's Worldwide – DJ Mag - Public Vote) with whom they debued their first fully live Audio Visual show at Matter in 2009. Check out their joint skills in the hilarious Flight of the Conchords a/v remix below, from Atomic Drop's YouTube channel).
The boys should have their first EP, Forget Everything Else coming in February, on James's own label Liquid Records. There's also rumours of a psybreaks release compiled by Djem's somewhere on the horizon. Can't feckin wait.
Atomic Drop are playing live at Halcyon, Matter on March 12 alongside Simon Posford and a sick Alpha Omega line up, including Musical Mana favourites MaryMissFairy and Hedflux. Get your tickets HERE
