April Charts

I hope it feels like a hyperhyperscooterupdate to you. The charts have 15 songs this month, a mp3 and I put pictures of our last Acid Records party online.

  1. Prince – Love – Universal
    Prince had his first number one debut on the billboard charts with 3121 and hence he has to be #1 on my charts, too. This is my favourite song from the album.
  2. Colonel Abrams – Love on a Cutting Edge (Dance Vocal Mix) – Nardi
    Entrancing house record I discovered in New York.
  3. Cajmere feat. Dajae – Say U Will (Original Mix) – Cajual #292
    The Green Velvet Vocal Mix (from Cajual #293) is rockier, I can’t decide which one I like best.
  4. Kanye West feat. Twista & Keyshia Cole – Impossible
    New Kanye for Misson Impossible 3.
  5. The National Trust – Kings and Queens – Thrill Jockey Records
    Malo pointed me to this fantastic record. I always fall for a little bit of that funky Prince sound. Love the cover and the title.
  6. Jamie Lewis – It’s Over feat. Michael Watford (Main Mix) – Purple Music
    Classic Michael Watford vocals & lyrics. Buy it at Purple Switzerland.
  7. Cheri – Murphy’s Law – Venture Records
    Piranhahead pressed this 12″ into my hands when we went to a used record store in Detroit. I hadn’t heard the 1982 hit. I instantly fell for the great opening lines: “I hate to tell you, but I got a bit of bad news – I don’t love you no more” and the speed up background vocals.
  8. Tiga – The sultry songs from Sexor: Sir Sir Sir, (Far From) Home – PIAS
    I didn’t like the album when I listened to it a few weeks ago but now I’m into the sultry songs.
  9. The Todd Terry Project – Weekend – various labels
    Cover of the Leroy Burgess classic. Fantastic & hysterical mid-90ties Todd Terry beats.
  10. Journey Into Paradise: The Larry Levan Story – Rhino
    A new Larry Levan compilation with songs he spun and remixes he did.
  11. Geiger – Talk To Me (from the Day 12″) – Firm
  12. Goldfrapp – Ride a White Horse (Ewan Pearson Disco Odyssey Parts 1 & 2) – Mute
    15 min. of electro disco fun of which I like the first 6 min. best, guess this is Part I.
  13. Jens Friebe – Lawinenhund (Egoexpress Remix B Goddamned Bunker Edit) – EMI
    Very techno for my taste, but anyway, it’s Jens Friebe. Most of the lyrics are stripped except for “Du warst begraben, in diesem gottverdammten Laden”. Handclaps.
  14. Coldcut feat. Robert Owens – Walk A Mile In My Shoes – Ninja Tune
  15. P!NK – Who Knew – LaFace
    This is the obvious choice for the next single off the new P!NK album. Very catchy. Just checked her site and she is shooting a video for the song! Wow, can’t wait.

Cheri, amour.Buy Cheri, although I like the original album artwork to the left better.

Produzentin watches Pink by CW

Oh no, oh no, what happens?

I don’t want to blog about Pink, the movie by Charlie White. Because it is an ad for a sneaker company and THEY want me to do just that. So I don’t. But I’m a fanin of Charlie White ever since I saw his pictures of Joshua eons ago. Google the Pink video yourself.
I was just out of bed, wearing my cheap ass christmas pyjama, when I sucked in the short film.

Tulpe.
