The Young Punx return for their second studio album, a startling and inventive exploration of the deliberate destruction of genre boundaries in electronic music. Probably the first album in history to have toyed with drum and bass, heavy metal, electropop and cuban timba within the first 5 minutes (!) “Mashpop and Punkstep” is a vibrant manifesto for the next generation of mashup music. Featuring the epic collaboration with Memphis hip hop Don ‘Count Bass D’ – “Ready For the Fight” (already heard as the theme music for EA Games “Fight Night 4″ and as official entry music for world middleweight champion Arthur Abraham), the J-pop electro disco of SugarCandySuperNova and the Ragga House of “Juice and Gin” the album spans Puccini Opera, Punk rock, hip hop, synth pop, Japanese rock and much more…
“[The Young Punx are...] jubilantly shredding genre boundaries, swooping like crack crazed Magpies to grab their favourite shiny bits with maniacal gusto” – Clash Magazine

There is just one’Mashpop and Punkstep’album,so far, one of the Best Indie Party Albums this year!
Impelled by an insatiable hunger to impose their musical concepts on the unsuspecting (yet inevitably thankful) masses, the visionary electronic circus ringmasters Monosurround are finally poised to unleash the latest act in their three-ring spectacle. With the unveiling of MS Records, the minds behind the madness have founded the platform from which they will boldly announce their decrees to ears and dancefloors across the world, bringing together their own music with selections and remixes from a carefully selected cache of fellow producers.
For the labelʼs inaugural blast, label heads Ramtin A. and Erik S. have chosen one of their biggest hits of recent years – the title track from their scorching album “Hello World” – as the springboard for a complete musical overhaul by a collection of their current favorite studio wizards.
Monosurround kick off the four-track vinyl EP with their own dancefloor-chasing Club Rework of “Hello World”, a blazing electro-house affair bristling with energy and doused in overdriven acid. An audacious and playfully malicious bassline, massive enough to cause any soundfield to burst at its seams, carries the song through a series of effects-laden crescendos expertly designed for evoking maximum effect.
France-based duo The Gilles de la Tourette Conspiracy strip the track down to its bare bones, rebuilding an ominous and tense techno number which seamlessly blends a simple string arrangement with rumbling low-frequency atmospherics to craft a piece of minimál noire.
English artist The Big Robot imports a taste of tech-funk from the Isles, presenting a squeaky number that rides a massive chopped bass and defiant metallic riffs through a series of heavily cut samples and shredded synths, manufacturing an electrifying trip for any lucky enough to find themselves within earshot.
Hungarian indie-infusion artist Adam Landon adds the final touch to the EP with his incomparable mish-mash of influences, creating a rock-tinged electroid number that surfs on the edge of combustion while keeping just one finger barely hanging on to the right side of chaos.
As a bonus to the digital-friendly DJs and listeners, the tracks from the vinyl release will be packaged with four additional remixes and released as a digital compilation. A lush, relaxed tech-house interpretation from French newcomer Mazel Source provides a subtly twisted soundtrack for the after-hours while BRM and Azgas each throw their own sense of fun into a pair of breakbeat-inspired remixes for the prime hours. Closing the digital compilation is German abstract beat extraordinaire Xyqph with deliciously mangled reconstruction that defies definition and stands alone in its daring uniqueness.
The NYC house duo rushes to paradise on this week’s RA podcast.
It may not have been the originator of the genre, but New York certainly has its fair share of house music heritage. As House Of House, Olivier Spencer and Saheer Umar are one of the latest acts to take their place in NYC’s house lineage, causing a major stir last year with their dance floor-slaying debut single, “Rushing To Paradise (Walking These Streets).” Its slick synth pulses, cascading pianos and
visceral climax made sure that it found its way into the boxes of DJs looking for a dance floor track with plenty of emotional clout,and our panel of critics here at RA couldn’t get enough, placing it at #20 in our Top Tracks Of 2009 poll.
When they both get behind the decks as House Of House, though, don’t expect a straight up set of deep house. As this week’s podcast proves, Spencer and Umar are a wild and diverse pair when they get down to mixing, managing to traverse from organic house through to dark minimal techno and back, even managing to work in a bit of pitched-down dubstep. We caught up with the duo by e-mail to ask them about the mix,their recent activities and what revellers can expect when House Of House hit their local clubbing establishment.(RA)
