* Your line up: which other DJs will be playing (please provide myspace links /set lists if possible);

The most breathlessly acclaimed dance-music producers of the last twelve months give us a look of the future -- ESG's "The Beat" from 1983 with bleepy bits.

How dare someone sample ESG! Why, it's simply not done...

Nice -- the problem, though, of course, isn't digging up an old record, but doing it and adding only a bare '90s house beat, Norman Cook silliness, and a spackle of squelch. Some lovely keyboards in there can't help me feeling cold to the whole thing.

Simian Mobile Disco's house stunt looks good, and I'm curious how their Bugged Out mix turned out, but they seem to be getting a lot of mileage out of not a whole lot.

Fair enough, Fawkes. But listen to their remixes of the Go Team, the Rapture, their production for the Klaxons, or any of their other original tracks. These guys may be leaning to hard on their source material here, but they've got plenty of other tricks up their sleeves.
