Tommy Trash and Tom Piper (feat. Mr Wilson) – All My Friends

August 1, 2011

The AU version of The Annual 2011 is yet another solid production from Ministry of Sound that complements the UK version well. Mixed by Aussie electro lads Hook N Sling and Tommy Trash, it continues to put a strong showing against the much hyped international versions (though I wish we got 3 cd’s over here…). The album works well combining out-and-out popular tracks such as ‘Barbara Streisand with perhaps lesser known tracks such as Kiss My Trance by The Subs.

All My Friends has a drop strangely similar to Calvin Harris’ I’m Not Alone, and if that’s not enough of a comparison to get you to listen, I don’t know what is. Check it out below:


Miami Horror – Sometimes (Hook and Sling Remix)

March 4, 2011

I’ve always been partial to Hook and Sling, or Anthony Maniscalco, since 2007 when he collaborated with fellow Australian Kid Kenobi with the release of “Bump“. His obvious talent brought international attention and with that followed the release of several big remixes of Calvin Harris, Fedde Le Grand, Miike Snow, and later Miami Horror. Boasting regular gigs at Pacha London, Ministry of Sound, Space Ibiza and so on, the Sydney born DJ has developed his music to have a slightly more refined feel, rather than out-and-out dynamism, and it certainly paid off with tracks such as this. This remix of “Sometimes” has made my night for a long time now, and as much as I’m compelled by the likes of smooth crooners like Adele and Bruno Mars in the popular scene, its refreshing every once in a while to pump it up a bit with some electro, and of course to hear Aussie boys making some waves in the global music scene.
