Double Standard Records is an extension of Wolf + Lamb. This is a mix looking back over 2 years and 10 releases, mixed by label founder Gadi Mizrahi (aka Money, aka Baby Prince) and Eli Gold from Soul Clap. I missed Soul Clap's gig the other night but this mix is helping me get over it. Some pretty smooth deep house here with the odd space laser noise thrown in for good measure:
Soul Clap - Funk Sex
Gadi Mizrahi, Soul Clap - Romantic Comedy
Greg Paulus - U R
Gadi Mizrahi, Soul Clap - Beautiful Thang
Gadi Mizrahi, Soul Clap - She's Bad
Nicolas Jaar - WOAH
Greg Paulus - What's Mine is Yours (Slow Hands Remix)
Double Hill - Wanna Get
Double Hill - Purple Hills
Voices of Black - Take Back Soho(Tanner Ross Remix)
Slow Hands - Sweetest Taboo Cover
Deniz Kurtel, Guti, Gadi Mizrahi - 3 AM
Double Hill, Jerome C - I Need Love
Voices Of Black - Atom Bomb
Baby Prince, Lonely C - I want to Squeeze You

The video for that Fet et Moi tune is also deadly:

Me: "His name is Dave One, he's in Chromeo and we love him."
Jessica: "You fancy a guy with a digit in his name? What the hell?!
What would you even call him in the bedroom?"
(pause in conversation)
Rachel and I, (in unison): "Here, YOU!"

The mix is not this moody.

Look at him.
1983, Pasadena. A Chinese restaurant called Two Panda had two robot waiters that weren't very good, but played disco music when they got confused. Yes, it sounds like something out of a wonderful dream: "They’re programmed to be nice to customers — 'Will there be anything else?' and 'See you tomorrow' — in Japanese, English and Spanish. Patrons whose commands confuse the pair get the response: 'That’s not my problem,' accompanied by a short blast of disco music to which the bubbleheads dance back and forth." - but I just read about it on the internet. So you know it's true. It was on the Smithsonian blog so it might actually be real. Too bad they were totally rubbish, or we could all be getting our dinner from disco lovin' robots today. Read the whole article here.
And I thought terrible/ unbelievably deadly robot waiters were just in the movies. Amazing movies such as Rocky IV. Embedding of the robot clip isn't allowed but click here to see it in action, with its amazing birthday theme tune.
Robot: PLEASE MAKE A WISH / Paulie: I wish I wasn't in this nightmare.

Underneath that tinfoil is more tinfoil, he's like a human pass the parcel.

race that evil twin to the rooftop
These guys hail from Sydney. They seem to have captured the sound of the summer right here with a mix including Perseus and Hot 8 Brass Band. It also has an inkling of the BEST SONG IN THE WORLD, 'This Must Be The Place' by Talking Heads, in case you haven't been convinced yet:
If you can't see the above box, click here.
Anyone down Sydney way would probably do well to go to their free daytime rooftop party on Sunday April 28th. Check https://www.facebook.com/danceclubsydney for more details; sounds like a buzz.

bang o' Teenwolf off this chungfella
Night Plane is WIlliam Rauscher, a New York based producer slash DJ. It says on his soundcloud blurb that "The mission of Night Plane is to explore the manifold forms of psychedelic and ecstatic musics by incorporating elements of house, disco and rock" - but don't let that put you off. Some sweet, sweet, deep house music here for Kreativa, a Mexican electronica label:

Kim Ann Foxman made this deadly, downloadable mini-mix for I-D magazine; some sweet/ bangin' Sunday grooves to cure what ails you:
Also, I hadn't watched this in a while, get it into you. She is SO slick.

Pearl necklace not included
Solomun did a Diynamic radio show a few weeks ago, it's been in my ears the last while. Love his house sound: gorgeous, laid back and soulful. Soothing too, if you are hanging after a bold Good Friday... Download it, buy it a drink, it'll definitely put out:
Follow him on soundcloud.com/solomun for more sweet stuff.

Lazertits.com - a nice place to live
If, like me, you gave up disco and space laser noises for Lent, you are going to want to crack open these dance eggs and go to town on them with your greedy ear mouths. Or, craftily just eat the back out of them, then package them right back up and no one's any the wiser. I won't tell.
