Bad Tango's Analogue Hedgehog, Flithy Peasant and Disco Steve

Helloo - Katty here - finally got around to writing a music blog thanks to Peachi & co.! Looking forward to sharing my favourite artists' music with you - new and old- so be it breaks, filth, full on psytrance, dubby dub dub or mash potato, I'll do my best to give you a tasty selection of the chunkiest funkiest beats out there :D
First up: my favourite psy-breaks artist of the moment, who has literally burst onto the scene within the last few months with his astoundingly astute production skillz and scintillatingly spiky sound. Monsieur Will Railton aka BAD TANGO is only 22, but has already created a most excellent reputation: since smashing up the dancefloor at gigs such as Waveform festival 2010, Mr Tango's crafty creations are sure to be snapped up by record labels and DJs alike as he continues to produce top drawer choons.

Here's his phatty phatty remix of Big Mistake's hit 'Paradigma':
Big Mistake - "Paradigma" (Bad Tango Remix) [Out now on Juno] by Bad Tango

And one of my personal favourites: so aptly named, 'Analogue Hedgehog' truly evokes a plump, squidgy hedgehog covered with sharp metallic spikes, shuffling and bumbling along enjoying the groove! How he makes it sound simultaneously soft and spiky escapes me (think Peachi's alliteration might be catching?!)

 Watch this space for more chunkadelic releases... plus the guy is as nice as his tracks... great to see talent get recognised! 

If you take your break(fast?) with an edge of tech funk filthiness, look no further than this obese mix by dirt fiend FILTHY PEASANT (Matt Lawrence). True to his name, this rather sneaky vagabond schmuches up psy and funk influences with technical prowess. The middle phase of Far Too Loud, Olmec and Sam Hell tracks particularly floats my boat! Here's his December mix, the best I reckon:

and here he is enjoying an abnormally face-disfiguring drop:


Last but not least, DISCO STEVE is a psytrance mixologist that has caught my attention recently. If you're into wild psychedelic journeys to planet zogg and beyond, this mix will be right up your street! Hovering on the edge of my threshold for full-on/'dark' tolerance but definitely making me want to stomp like a maniac, Steven Roberts shows his relentless passion for psy - especially from South Africa. Last track is stupendous!

So... hope you're all danced out! Stay tuned for my next post on Neuroplasm, psytrance wizards, plus inevitably more filth. Might drop in a mix of my own at the end! ;)
