FM Sage

Junior Boys - FM (Tensnake Remix) [Domino, 2007]
Like A Child (Carl Craig Remix) and Double Shadow (Kode 9 Remix) was two quite OK remixes. But here's the winner, hands down (I haven't heard the Hot Chip rmx though, hehe). Tensnake transforms the FM track into something very suitable for a packed dancefloor. Sweet, sweet rhythms.

Sage Francis - Black out on white night [Epitaph, 2007]
Sage Francis - Call me Francois [Epitaph, 2007]
Indie-nerd-hiphop! Finally more from our beloved Sage Francis, and a full packed album of him even - wohoo: "Human the death dance". Starts out strong with the first real track, 'Undeground for dummies' then continuing the onslaught with 'Civil obedience' and then just goes nuts from there - nuts as in crazy good; always catchy, but lyrics (rich on references) and flow that kills. Production contributed by giants such as Odd Nosdam, Ant, Buck 65, Alias and Sixtoo ensures vast differances in styles, still nothing that takes away from the 'plot' of the album. An artist and an album that's worth listening to as a whole, not just these tracks I've posted. Call me Francois being more uptempo while Black out on white night is pure melancholy.
