More gypsy house from Rubix

Posted in Bart B More, Para One, Rubix on 18 februari 2010 by hajen


Rubix
has made another great remix. This time for Bart B More‘s Romane which releases on Sound Pellegrino next Tuesday, the 23rd. The remix is a groovy gypsy dance tune in Rubix style. The single also contains remixes by for example Para One.  A fun note is the cover art, which makes me associate to a compilation of classical music my parents used to listen to when I grew up.

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.

INTERVIEW: Rubix

Posted in Interview, Rubix on 18 december 2009 by surikaten


A month ago we posted a track that we totally fell in love with the first time we heard it. The track, named Baiser Sur La Disco, is a ”must-dance” discohouse experience created by the brilliant up-coming producer Rubix. We felt that we couldn’t just let this artist pass us by. So we arranged an interview about influences, the ”new” electro stage and a question we just had to ask.

TAjT: Since we blogged about you last time a lot of others has picked up your music as well. How do you think the high speed society has affected your aritstery? Are there both positive and negative?

Rubix: The positive side is that If people like the stuff you are making it’s a lot easier to get your name out there.
The negative side of the whole high speed blog communication is that there is an overkill of music coming towards you.

T: Listening to your music one can’t miss the obvious disco influences. Why have this genre become a main theme for you?

R: From the beginning I listened to house/electronic music (about 2001), I loved the French Disco House sound. Guys like Thomas Bangalter, Le Knight Club, Dj Sneak, Buffalo Bunch, Play Paul and Laidback Luke inspired me. Now its 2009 and that sound is finally coming back! The big boys like A-trak and Armand van Helden are pushing that disco sound again.

T: It seems as the electro stage in general is in sort of a funky mode at the time. Do you agree? In your opinion, why is that?

R: From the moment Justice started with the distortion sound  Electro have been getting harder and harder until now. Don’t understand me wrong I like to rock hard electro tracks from time to time, but some  DJ’s only play very ruff electro tracks with no suspires or other genres. I think a lot of people now want some more variety  in the dj sets with for instance some disco tracks, gypsy stuff and some hard electro and fidget at the end.

T: You’re from the Netherlands, right in between the huge electronic music producing countries France and Germany. How has this influenced your life and your music?

R: Not really… Doesn’t  really matter where you live, as long as there is some internet around!

T: What makes you dance?

R: Crappy 70ties Disco Vinyl

T: You’ve got most upcoming gigs in the Netherlands, are we likey to see you out touring in the near future?

R: Lately I got a lot of requests on Myspace,Twitter and Facebook of Kids who would like to have a party with me, but the promoters have to pick me up and get me over there ;).

T: Name your personal top three producers/artists right now.

R: 1. Bloody Beetroots 2. Laidback Luke 3. A-trak

T: Along with this interview we will be posting your remix on C-Code’s Burning Up In Here. Describe the song in your own words.

R: Its inspired by Old Thomas Bangalter tracks. That’s all I can say…

T: Last but not least, do you have any relation to Rubik’s cube? If you have, what sort of?

R: Nope, no relation.

Re-post: Rubix – Baiser Sur La Disco (Rubix Refix)

Rubix – Disco at it’s best!

Posted in Rubix with tags , on 17 november 2009 by surikaten

Vi dog en aning här på TAjT när vi första gången hörde Rubix fenomenala discodänga Baiser Sur La Disco. Vi tycker att det inte är mer än rätt att ni också får dö en aning. Funk, disco, house i en helt fantastiskt blandning. Glöm inte att dansa oavsett var om du sitter i soffan, står på tunnelbanan eller äter middag med släkten.
Seriöst, detta är så j*vla bra!

Som bonus uppmanar vi er att lyssna på mixtapet Disco Pour Les Enfants. Dansant? Ja hyfsat!
