Neon Indian
I need to credit Scott for finding Neon Indian, I almost wrote it off because the name but one quick listen and I was hooked. The synths have this nice in and out sound and his singing stays in the perfect range, overall just a catchy experimental pop song, I hope to hear more from him.

I remember that Shades Of Jae was my first taste of actually obsessively seeking out a record, a friend of mine had doubles but didn’t want to part with either. The song is such a tease, it feels like its going to start up like 10 times but just goes back into the groove that doesn’t have a kick which really separates the house lovers and the fakers on a dance floor.

Disco tracks on Kompakt in the early 2000s? yes and it was a go to record if you had to DJ to a stiff crowd. If I didn’t have Muria by Metro Area or 2 after 909 some nights would get really long, these 2 always loosened everyone up with that huge swaying synth and warmed up Kraftwerk like sounding machines calculating.

One of the first songs I ever heard by The Field was A Paw In My Face and its still one of the best. Held together by a looping stutter of a Lionel Richie song and some octave changes I never know when you would turn it off because i’m such a fan of repetition, i’m going on 3 times in a row and I still want more.

Just saw some retweets of this Flying Lotus video i’ve never seen for Infinitum, enjoy.

Did dj sneak sample moodymann or the other way around?

Anyway I like sneak’s version more, but that’s due the good times I had on that track.

I am a huge italo disco fan and was upset to find out that Neon Indian ripped off of one of the genres most beloved song. I asked them about it on their myspace page but they erased my comments and blocked me. Obviously they are trying to pull a fast one. I wouldn’t care if they credited the song or wrote back to me but they didn’t have the decency to respond so I am going around spreading this information on blogs.

Listen for yourself and pass the information along if you feel inclined:

Other than that I really like their album, I just don’t like people that steal.
