HAJEN: Best of 2009

Posted in A-trak, Amanda Blank, Annie, Armand Van Helden, David Guetta, Deadmau5, Duck Sauce, Fred Falke, Jesper Dahlbäck, Kid Cudi, Kris Menace, Name The Pet, Rubix, Shazam, What we danced to 2009 on 31 december 2009 by hajen

So, it’s time for our very last post this year. We’re closing the loop with the fourth and last Best of 2009 list. This is my, Hajen’s, best tracks of 2009. Happy New Year dear readers!

10. Rubix – Baiser Sur La Disco (Rubix Refix)

Rubix – disco at its best! I fell in love with this song the first time I heard it. It’s a must dance track with a promise of a never ending night at the dance floor. But for God’s sake don’t leave this track for the club nights – use it whenever you need to cheer someone up – at the bus, in school, at work, in supermarket queues. Disco is for living.

9. Duck Sauce – aNYway

This Duck Sauce might not have many similarities with this sweet and sour thing you eat with china food. The mix of A-trak – Armand Van Helden and house/funky disco makes me fall head over heels. And as icing on the cake they have made a marvelous video for aNYway. I say no more.

8. Deadmau5 – Strobe

This track by always genius Deadmau5 doesn’t need an explanation. Listen – and marvel.

7. Amanda Blank – Make It Take It

Amanda Blanks I love you might be one of my most listened albums of 2009. The thousand layers of her deep and smooth voice on simple, but oh so brilliant, bass loop. A perfect clash between electro and hip hop.

6. Fred Falke – Back To Stay

You that read TAjT on a regular basis clearly now what position Fred Falke has got in our, and especially mine. electrified heart. Fred Falke is like the good parts of Midas. Golden like a car ride in winter scenarys, a sunny day by the sea or a smoky, sweaty, slow but energic dance floor at 5 am. Back to stay is the good parts of life.

5. Name The Pet – Get On The Bus

This is one of my favourite dansgolsvältare (translation: tune that overturnes the dancefloor) from this year. I can’t explain why –  my words seems unimportant in the company of Get on the bus. Turn up the volume – the intro says it all.

4. Shazam – Hello Cat

A smooth track that reminds me of Jamiroquai in its best days. Very nice tune!

3. Annie – Don’t Stop

After escaping her last record label and getting parts of her album leaked out, one of the most longed for albums finally came. Annie takes electro pop to a new level with Don’t stop. The title track is a catchy and karaoke friendly one – in a fresh way.

2. Jesper Dahlbäck – Super Connector

Last winter I moved to a collective in Solna, north of Stockholm. This track accompanied me on my way to work all spring.

1. Kris Menace feat. Fred Falke – Electricity

I agree with Surikaten on this. It’s indeed hard to choose one track from Kris Menace debut album Idiosyncrasies. But, Electricity it is. Mostly because it manages to remain easy even though it has a massive fateful image. It’s magic!

BONUS: David Guetta feat. KiD CuDi – Memories

A track that both I and Surikaten really like is this track. A genious collab between Guetta and Kid Cudi, between house and r n’ b. A totally genious floor filler that at least we are going to welcome the new year with tonight.

He’s hot!

Armand van Helden is hot right now and we feel that we can’t really handle it any other way than by giving him the space he deserves. Not only has he teamed up with A-Trak in disco house duo Duck Sauce, he has also continued to produce own tracks. Lately he has been climbing the house chart at Beatport with the track Funk Phenomena remixed by Starkillers. We just have to post it along with a great collab with Dizzee Rascal, and a bonus for all of you who might forgot about Armand van Helden.

Armand van Helden & Dizzee Rascal – Bonkers (Club Mix)

Bonus: Armand van Helden – I Want Your Soul

A-Trak som nyligen setts och hörts här på TAjT tillsammans med Armand Van Helden i helt briljanta Duck Sauce kan också på egen hand. 50 % av TAjTs direktörer var och såg honom på Blå i Oslo för ett år sedan och sedan dess är vi fast. Med en grym teknik live och sjukt mycket musikalitet är det svårt att inte fastna. Har ni inte fastnat ännu? Lyssna på dagens spår. Lite nytt, lite gammalt, lite eurodisco influenser, lite electro och massa dansmusik.

Yeah Yeah Yeahs – Heads Will Roll (A-Trak Remix)

Simian Mobile Disco – Hustler (A-Trak Remix)

Boys Noize – Oh! (A-Trak Remix)

Och som en bonus…

Duck Sauce – aNYway (Black Noise Disco Remix)

Bring me that Duck Sauce!

”Duck sauce
is a translucent sweet and sour orange condiment used in some Chinese-American restaurants.” , says Wikipedia. TAjT says that it’s one of the most interesting and skilled duos that we’ve heard in a long time. And TAjT’s right of course. What could possibly go wrong when Armand Van Helden and A-Trak team up? Well nothing.
This is as funky as funky can be!

Duck Sauce är allt annat än en halvgenomskinlig sötsur sås. Duck Sauce är en av de mest intressanta och kompetenta duos vi har hört på länge. Vi menar vad kan gå fel när Armand Van Helden och A-Trak gör gemensam sak? Ingenting faktiskt.

Välkommen till en fantastisk fredag med TAjT och Duck Sauce. Glöm inte att ta på dina bästa discodansskor.
